Why an Engagement Proposal is such a Great Idea!
Capturing the Moment
Of course, the main reason to have an engagement proposal session is to capture the moment of the proposal itself. This is a moment that you’ll want to remember forever. It’s a moment that every couple has dreamed about all of their lives. Having photos to look back on, can help both of you relive the excitement and joy of that day over and over again.
Sharing the Moment with Loved Ones
Once you have these beautiful photos, you’ll be able to share that moment with all of your loved ones, including family members and friends who may not have been there to witness the proposal in person. This can be a great way to celebrate your engagement and get everyone excited about your upcoming wedding. It is a great story to add to your new journey together on the road to husband and wife. Think about that wedding guest book. Being able to tell your love story with not only your engagement pictures but the photos of the actual proposal itself. The emotional moments in that alone would be absolutely stunning in a guest book to share with your loved ones.
Getting Professional-Quality Photos
While you could certainly ask a friend or family member to take photos of your proposal, having a professional photographer there ensures that you’ll get high-quality, beautiful photos that you’ll be proud to display and share with others.
How to Plan An Engagement Proposal…Will You Marry Me?
Now that you know why capturing the engagement proposal is such a great idea, it’s time to start planning! Here are the steps you’ll need to take:
1. Choose a Photographer
The first step is to choose a photographer. A person who specializes in engagements and wedding photography will know how to capture this momentous emotional moment in your love story…your proposal. Look for someone who has experience in capturing candid emotional moments, and check out their portfolio to make sure you love their style. Choose a photographer who will go out and scout different locations you’ve chosen, like myself, and give you the best advice on those locations. You’ll also want to make sure they’re available on the day you plan to propose and that they have the ability to help you plan this hugely important moment in your life, so everything runs smoothly. Don’t leave anything to chance with priceless moments in your life.
2. Pick a Location
The location of your proposal is important. It will set the tone for the entire event. It is extremely important that you choose a place that is meaningful to both you and your partner. Whether it’s a park, a beach, or a favorite restaurant, if it’s meaningful to both of you it will make that emotional moment even more special. Make sure to scope out the location ahead of time and talk to your photographer about the best places to take photos in the location you’ve chosen.
3. Plan the Details
Once you have a photographer and a location, it’s time to start planning the details of the proposal itself. Think about what you want to say, how you want to ask the question, and any other special touches you want to include. Make sure to communicate all of this with your photographer so they know what to expect and can capture the moment perfectly. Stay down on that knee for a good amount of time. Give your photographer the time to get as many of those emotional moments at different distances with their long lens. Nothing should be done quickly. Take your time, take in the moment, and enjoy every single second.
What to Expect on the Day of the Proposal
Even if you’re usually a calm and collected person, proposing can be nerve-wracking. You may feel jittery or anxious leading up to the proposal, but remember, this is normal. Take a deep breath and focus on the love you have for your partner.
As you get closer to the proposal itself, you’re likely to start feeling more and more excited. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for your entire life up to this point. It’s going to be absolutely amazing! Take your time, I can’t stress that enough, take in every emotional moment.
Joy and Happiness
Finally, once you’ve popped that question! Your partner has said yes!! You both will feel an overwhelming sense of joy and happiness. This is a moment you’ll never forget! Having a photographer there to capture it all will make it even more special. You will be able to relive that captured moment and the emotions from it, over and over again.
