Proposals & Engagements

If you are looking for the perfect way to pop the big question – look no further. I’ve facilitated quite a few surprise-proposal hikes, and can say that it is a truly memorable experience.  I’ll coordinate the perfect moment with you – from beneath a waterfall, to valley overlooks and mountaintop summits, we can get you to a truly incredible setting.

All engagement hikes are a treated as a private tour, and include the following:

  • Photography
  • Snacks and dessert assortment
  • Hike to waterfall and valley

In addition, we can create a cinematic video of your proposal – complete with B-roll footage from the hike, and optional backstory.  And the best part – we will play it off as if we are testing new camera gear, so that your partner has no idea whats about to come!

Cost

Proposal Hikes Start at $450, with cinematic video for $350 additional.  With the cinematic video, we combine stabilized ground footage, aerial drone footage, and high quality portrait style video from a tripod. Every moment and emotion can be captured forever.

Testimonials

“Brian worked with my then-boyfriend Kevin to create a seamless ruse about filming a hike for marketing practice and I totally bought it. We met Brian at the Kaaterskill Falls parking lot and right from the get-go we all clicked! Brian led us into the woods and expertly guided us along the winding trails to various lookout spots where we really got to see the drone in action. We then progressed to the lower area of the falls and then climbed to the second tier. All the while Brian educated us on the history and geology of the region and entertained us with funny quips and anecdotes. At the second tier of the waterfall, Brian said he wanted to set up all three cameras for a ‘3D photo’ and I thought nothing of it! Kevin and I waited on a rock in front of the waterfall, marveling at the cooling mist and the small rainbow at its base, until all of a sudden Kevin got down on one knee and proposed to me. I said yes immediately! And then I realized that every moment of this once-in-a-lifetime experience was caught on camera! Brian came over to congratulate us and the rest of our hike was full of celebration. We enjoyed perfectly ripe fruit and salami, cheese, and crostini on a rock ledge behind the waterfall before continuing on our way. Our final stop was the very top of the waterfall looking out over the green valley as the sun began to set. Brian captured all of our joyous moments as a newly engaged couple while also making us feel like we were alone out there on the ledge. Once we returned to the parking lot, Brian immediately sent us the photos he took on his iPhone and said our video should be ready in about a week. Not even a full two days later we had a fully edited video of our hike and proposal! We immediately sent it to all of our friends and family because words alone did not do our experience justice! I cannot thank Brian enough for all the planning and hard work he did to capture these most important memories for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Even if you don’t plan on proposing to anyone, this experience is one-of-a-kind and not to be missed!” -Emily and Kevin, June 2019

“Brian was an excellent (licensed) tour guide on our hike around Kaaterskill Falls today! He was knowledgeable of the area and made our safety and enjoyment his priority. He brought along several sets of spikes for our boots, which was an absolute necessity with the snow and ice along our hike. Brian brought snacks as well for us, and took multiple photos and video using his phone and his professional drone. When we finished up, he quickly air dropped the photos right to my phone. Lastly, I decided to propose to my girlfriend on this hike, and Brian was so quick and willing to work with me to set up the right spot and moment for the proposal, with only a days notice. What a great time and adventure, one we will never forget!!” – Matt, December 2018

“This was such a great experience!!! Brian was an absolute rockstar throughout this whole experience. His communication was excellent, the hike itself was excellent, and his ability to meet the specific needs I requested were excellent. I planned this trip as a surprise proposal for my now Fiancee, and Brian communicated and worked with me throughout the whole thing, from working with me to pick the most ideal spot, to taking excellent video with his Drone and subsequent camera setups. It ended up being a magical experience for my fiancee and I, of which I would recommend to anyone looking for a unique proposal experience with excellent video/pics to remember it by. I’m so happy and pleased with the overall experience and my proposal that I recommend this to anyone looking for a great outdoor experience, or a romantic adventure in the beauty of upstate new york. I’m sure the flexibility and personal touch he put on my experience will translate greatly to yours! Thanks again Brian!!” – Dominick, December 2018

“About a week before our trip I messaged Brian telling him that I plan on proposing to my girl friend on the trip and if there is spot he recommends I do it at. Brian was very eager to help me, and he did a lot of work to make sure it all went well. During the hike he took lots of pictures, and he is even editing together a video for us. Brian was very friendly, charismatic, and knowledgable of the trail. The scenery of the Catskills was incredibly beautiful, especially with the bright fall colors. Brian really helped make this a special day for us, he even bought us a bottle of champagne to celebrate our engagement! We would definitely recommend this tour to everybody!” – Jeremy, October 2018
