Have you ever had the urge to propose in an entirely original way, one that would make your beloved feel extra special? Stealing the standard dinner date proposal idea from everyone else is so boring and overdone. All of your friends will have seen it before! But what if I told you proposing by helicopter was a thing? Imagine how romantic and thoughtful it would be to whisk away your partner for a surprise helicopter ride to provide you both with views never seen or experienced before – then organize for them to say yes as well! If this magical flight of imagination has won you over, read on as we explore why adventure helicopter proposals are an amazing way to make any proposal truly unforgettable.
From the Photographer: Ryan reached out to me to help plan a proposal for his beloved, and when he told me this endeavor involved a helicopter I was STOKED. I’ve never flown in a helicopter before, so I was super excited to try this new experience out. I met the pilot at a little airport, and we decided to pretend I was his daughter, so the surprise of the proposal wouldn’t be ruined, and lemme say, this man UNDERSTOOD the assignment. He kept talking to me like his daughter in front of them and acted like I’d done this a million times, it was so funny. There was even a point where he let me steer the helicopter! We flew over downtown Denver, and landed on a hill somewhere behind Red Rocks. We all got out and hiked a little bit to an area with a nice view, and Ryan gave me a little signal that he was about to drop down to one knee. The surprise worked and everybody was so happy and cheered and cried. We popped champagne to seal the deal, twirled around the hilltop a bit, and climbed back in the helicopter to head back to the airport where both of their families were waiting. It was a once in a lifetime experience, and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it.
