Engagement Shoots

Malibu Engagement Session – Molly & Kyle

Molly and Kyle were both students at Colorado State University and they both went to the local gym, Wild Horizons CrossFit. Molly had just finished cheerleading and wanted to find someone to stunt her. Everyone pointed to Kyle as the guy to-go-to and said that he would totally be down. It started as business, they would meet up weekly to practice and throw around some stunts. They ended up liking each other and went on their first date on Valentine’s Day. They fell for each other hard and became official a little after that. They’ve been together for 4 years.

On President’s Day Weekend in 2017 Kyle had a romantic plan to propose to Molly at the top of Squaw Valley Mountain in Lake Tahoe, CA. But sadly, everything that could have gone wrong that day, did.

First, Molly got really sick the night before. So sick, that she was considering not even going to ski that day. Kyle was so sweet and did everything he could to help her feel better. Next, her binding broke at the top of the mountain on the very first run no less. So Kyle and his father helped her “jimmy-rig” the board and she proceeded to board the whole day with her boot tied to the binding via the shoe-lace. Lastly, a huge storm rolled in that morning – this was problematic because Kyle had hired a photographer and flown Molly’s parents in to witness the proposal, at the top of the mountain, at day’s end. After a few runs, Kyle decided to call “an audible” as he says. Since the visibility was no more than 20 feet, he realised it wouldn’t be possible for the photographer or her parents to witness the event.

Kyle and his father had to call the photographer and explain the situation. The current plan was no good and they decided to wait to do it at a dinner location (where a secret engagement party awaited). When they got to the restaurant, he kept asking her to go out to the dock for some nice photos. Molly refused because she was cold and didn’t want to climb over the giant snow mound. Although it was nothing as he had planned and she wasn’t being very compliant, he decided to ask her, right there, on the patio porch of the restaurant, in front of everybody.

As a little side-note, Molly says that “Kyle had proposed to me every single day for over a year because he thought it was funny. And I would always laugh, explaining that when there’s a ring I will actually believe you.

So when it came time for him to propose, I just figured he was joking again. I had absolutely zero idea he was being serious. So when he got down on his knee in front of the restaurant, I laughed as usual and just told him, “to stand up!” It wasn’t until his eyes starting watering and he was fidgeting with his pocket that I realised he was actually proposing, for real this time. And, oh my gosh, I just remember, “He’s really doing it!!” It was magical, perfect, and romantic as one could have ever imagined.”
