The day after I got to hang out with Nick and Jackie for their surprise proposal, I got to go back up for another Palm Springs tram surprise proposal! This time I got to be there for Jesus and Alex, and it was so much fun. Jesus and I planned out for this whole thing, where he brought Alex to the tram for a sunset picnic; he even went up the tram a couple of times before actually proposing to find the perfect spot! Once we got onto the tram, Alex stood right next to me with all my photography gear on and literally had no idea I was there to be part of her big surprise.

For the next half hour or so, Jesus led Alex on a hike on the Desert View trail, and Alex literally had no clue I was trailing them. I stayed behind them, and every time she would turn around I would pretend to be taking nature photos. It was pretty funny, especially after the proposal, when she realized I had been taking their photos the entire hike! Anyway, we pre-planned to stop at Lookout 3 for Jesus to get down on one knee. After about 15 minutes of looking out at the incredible desert views, Jesus pulled the ring out of their picnic blanket and asked Alex to marry him. It was such a sweet, private moment and I’m so excited to share some of my favorites from their Palm Springs tram surprise proposal!
