Matt + Kayla | Cades Cove |Smoky Mountain

 

Matt and Kayla decided to have a quick get away to the Smoky Mountains over the weekend. They have never been to Gatlinburg before and wanted to experience the mountains. Matt contacted me a few weeks before their trip and wanted to set something up for me to secretly photograph them as he proposed to her. I suggested Cade’s Cove. There is a beautiful pull over and a great mountain view shot.

We met up at a gas station and he followed me along the way. Kayla had no idea what was to come. They got out to get a shot of the mountains and he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him in the open field. Cars were parked up top and people were yelling a honking their horns to celebrate. She was so shocked and then when she saw me photographing it, she was stunned!

After he proposed, we took some fun shot of them with the mountains.

We then went to another great spot in Cade’s Cove. They are to sweet! I had a wonderful time getting to hear their story!
