So, you made the decision to pop the question to the love of your life? How exciting! Now that you’ve picked out the perfect ring, and rehearsed exactly what you want to say when you get down on one knee… Let’s plan out the logistics! In today’s post, I’m going to share exactly how to plan a surprise proposal photoshoot.
Hiring a professional photographer for your proposal is the perfect way to capture and preserve the memory for a lifetime. Trust me, your boo-thang will thank you later for going the extra step and making sure the moment is documented.
There are a couple of routes you can take when planning your surprise proposal photos. The first and easiest option is to plan a regular couples session with your partner. If you think they would be excited to take photos together, tell them you booked a couples session for the two of you as a gift. This option tends to be the easiest because you both will look picture-ready, and there’s overall less stress regarding the surprise factor.
When going this route, you can plan ahead with your photographer so they know the exact moment you’re about to ask. This could be a simple gesture like a long hug or a code word. Typically, I like to give my couples a certain prompt, and at that moment, you’ll know it’s go-time.
If you’re the type of person that typically isn’t into taking photos, planning a couples session might give your significant other an idea of what’s to come. In that case, we’ll have to be a little more sneaky with our approach.
Although it takes a little more preciseness and preparation, having a photographer present for a surprise proposal photoshoot without your partner’s knowledge, is totally possible.
Here’s how to make that happen:
