Empire Pass Park City Proposal

One of the best places to have a Park City proposal is Empire Pass. Located at 9,000 feet of elevation, there are gorgeous 360 degree mountain views and plenty of places to take photos. Michael reached out to me from my Contact Page needing help planning and capturing his proposal with his girlfriend of 4 years, Jossie. They came to Park City for a little summer getaway from Texas. He knew he wanted to propose with mountain views so I suggested my favorite place in Park City (and quite possibly all of northern Utah).

So we started planning the ultimate proposal! I suggested a few places to Michael and he decided on Empire Pass. Since he was coming from out of town, I sent him some photos and videos of my favorite places so he could get a good idea of what everything looked like. I think that he made the right choice. Empire Pass is in between Park City and Big Cottonwood Canyon so it is only open when there isn’t snow on the ground, however, you could technically still come here in the winter as it is a part of Deer Valley Ski Resort. There is a small parking area here and it normally fills up quickly especially on weekends. Luckily we planned the proposal for a weekday and it was not busy with bikers and hikers as it can be on weekends and holidays.

When the big day finally came, Michael and I stayed in contact throughout the day to make sure we were in the same place and to go over all the details. The proposal went great and Jossie was super surprised! The ring that he got her was absolutely beautiful. After the proposal we walked around the area and took photos for about 45 minutes before their dinner reservations at St. Regis. A folk band started playing, which just made the moment even better! It ended up being an amazing moment and I am so glad that I was able to be there to capture it all for this sweet couple.
