Utah Hot Air Balloon Proposal! Josh & Lexi

“Can you keep a secret?” and “Do you want to go on a hot air balloon ride?” Were the two questions Josh asked me 3 days before he proposed.

Now, all of my friends can vouch for me when I say I’m a HORRIBLE liar. I wear ALL of my emotions on my sleeve. So, when Josh hit me up to capture his hot air balloon proposal, I was terrified that she was going to find out.

The story was that I was asked to take some photos for a hot air balloon company that “hired” me to take some lifestyle photos for their social media. So all of the main lying relied on me…

I even went to create a fake text message from the owner describing all the details of what he wanted. Suffice it to say, that she had absolutely NO idea of what was happening. Hot air balloons are pretty small, I had never ridden in one before so I’m just glad that I had a wide enough lens to get the both of them. It was literally them two, me and the hot air balloon conductor and we were all pretty smushed.

The whole morning was sooo special and tender especially because I’ve seen their love grow from the beginning.
