Thinking about proposing? First of all, Congratulations! The fact that you are here reading this page is a BIG deal, and I’m really excited for you! After you decide how and when you will propose, the next step is to hire a photographer to capture it for you.
Why do you need a photographer at your proposal?
Having high-quality, high-resolution photographs of your proposal is A MILLION times better than having a few far away phone pictures on your mom’s iPhone. Ensuring that a professional photographer is there to capture your big moment will save you a lot of stress. Here are some benefits to hiring a professional:
Proposals can be tricky and each one is unique. Whether it’s just the two of you at a quiet park or you’re going to ask the question while horseback riding on the beach, there’s a lot that goes into this decision and a lot of details to get right. Having someone else that’s in on your plan is very helpful.
A professional photographer (hi, there!) can make helpful suggestions on what time of day to propose, which direction to face, and can offer other ideas to turn your memories into great photographs.
Having a friend or family member take pictures of your proposal is risky. In the moments before you propose, the last thing you’ll want to worry about is if your friend is standing in the best place for a picture.
I dodge, jump, and sneak around with a camera for a job. Oh, did that sound creepy? What I meant to say is that I‘m a wedding photographer, and I’m used to photographing couples in exciting, time sensitive and sometimes high-stress situations.
Proposals are so fun to photograph. They force a photographer to be quick with their camera and quick on their feet. A perfect proposal requires careful planning, organization and timing, so let me help you with that!
