Anthony planned an epic end-of-summer road trip with his girlfriend, Nikki, and wanted the trip to be extra memorable with a proposal in the Hocking Hills. He contacted me and we came up with a sneaky plan! I set up a tripod to take nature photos at Ash Cave and they wandered into the frame while on a hike. Against the stunning background of the cave overhang, Nikki said, “YES!” After the proposal, the couple changed out of their hiking clothes and met me at Cedar Grove Lodge for a charcuterie picnic from The Feed – Logan and a bottle of celebratory champagne. Since we were right down the road from Old Man’s Cave, we stopped at Upper Falls for some Dirty Dancing inspired photos in front of the waterfall.
