Each time my heart beats uncontrollably and my hands profusely sweating from the anxiety of the moment. A very intimate moment for the couple. A scene that solidifies absolute love above all else. It’s that powerful of a scene.
If it’s a dear friend or a complete stranger, these are special and amazing photo opportunities that only happen once. Opportunities that do more than cover one moment, but can be shared for many years to come. It is the first part of starting that new chapter as a couple. It is one of my favorite things to photograph.
Because of the severity of the moment, I not only shoot the event, but help in planning with the proposal. For example, we scout different locations and backgrounds, go over all the angles in order to capture all the emotion and go over cues right before the actual proposal. Afterwards, I quickly edit and send a handful of images from the proposal to send to family and to social media.
“Thank you for making my Fairytale ending into a New Year even more spectacular and memorable! I had no idea Ralph was going to propose to me and seeing you there taking pictures of us totally caught me off guard! You made it so easy for us to pose for you, you have personality plus and such an eye for unique photos! You have such an AMAZING talent and I would recommend you for any occasion and any event! We can’t wait to see the rest of the photos!”
“I called Anthony and told him about my surprise proposal idea. Not only did he listen and give advice, but he made the entire process a breeze! He was highly professional and all of the photos turned out absolutely stunning! I would recommend his company for any of your production needs! I sincerely appreciate how I was taken care of!”
