Surprise Engagement

How He Asked

Every surprise marriage proposal that I have photographed was different and a lot of fun. The weather, location, time of day, etc. The weather can be a problem. We might have to wait a day or two for better conditions. Some locations are only open during the summer months.

Below are a few scenarios.

Here are a couple of ideas

♥ I am unknown to your girlfriend. I’m just another tourist taking pictures. I keep my distance until it is time for you to propose. Unfortunately, I have no control over the situation. You could be standing in the wrong place. The sun might be casting shadows on to her face. People could be walking past. One idea to give me some control is to suggest to your girlfriend that you ask “that man over there” (me) to take a picture of you both with your camera. I can position you both better with the sun and mountains in the background.

♥ Ask your girlfriend to marry you during a couple’s photo shoot / sightseeing tour. We can visit one or more locations. You can give me a signal when you are ready to propose marriage. We travel around using my car.

Ask your girlfriend to put on some makeup. She will hate sharing pictures with family and friends if she has no mascara on her face and wearing old clothes.
