5 Reasons to hire a Proposal Photographer

By: Daniela Ortiz – Cabo Wedding Photographer

The day of your surprise proposal could be one of the most awesome days in your life. So why not have it perfectly captured? Consider having a professional to photograph the moment! I am pretty sure no one has ever regretted having photos of the beautiful time when they proclaimed to their partner “I want you… forever!”.

As a photographer it´s one of the most exciting coverages that I can do. The thrill when being an accomplice is definitely one of a kind! These are a couple of reasons why I think it is a brilliant idea to hire a professional photographer for this day.

1: Relive the memories!

Between the nerves and excitement this moment will, most likely, go by pretty quick! Next thing you know you´ll be saying “I do”! Photographs help freezing the moment, so in years ahead you can relive the feelings and remember the whole thing. Little details and all!

2: Surprise your partner!

My heart melts every time I get contacted for a surprise proposal. It can be elaborate, simple, private… it gets me any time. I mean, can you imagine arriving at the beach, walking along the ocean… they get on one knee and boom! Flowers, ring, photos! They thought of everything just for you! #heartmelt

4: Avoid photobombs and accidents!

Trust me! The reaction when they see the ring will be unique and unrepeatable. A proffesional photographer will know where to be, when to click and how to hide if necessary. Why risk having blurry cellphone photos with people walking by?
