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
3: Share the moment!
This is the perfect way to be able to share the experience! You get to have your intimate moment, but your friends and family can have a little sneak peek into the excitement. They will definitely appreciate getting to see you on one knee and your partner´s reaction!
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?
5: Have an awesome announcement photo!
You will both probably be dying to share the news with the whole world. Can you think of better way to do this, than having a breath-taking photo to share on social media? A picture will always be worth a thousand words. Share away!
BONUS! Get comfortable with being photographed!
After the proposal you can have some engagement photos taken and get a feel of how it goes. Because you will have some wedding photos in your near future! Feeling comfortable while posing in front of a camera will definiltely help!
