You know what I love about marriage proposals? Unlike weddings, that are typically planned for the warmer weather months, getting engaged happens all year long. I’ll admit I’m partial to the Holiday season proposals, but I’m one of those crazies that starts thinking about decorating for Christmas in July, so there’s that. Last year, I wrote this blog on How to Propose During the Holiday Season.
We love helping to plan marriage proposals, because we absolutely love the anticipation and the emotion that this one question brings. Plus, it allows us to bring so much more into planning the wedding with couples when we know how it all started.
I think the most important aspect of planning your proposal should be hiring a photographer. Being able to look back on that moment that is filled with so much joy and love, no matter how many years has passed, is so special. Not to mention, you’ve got something to post when announcing your news to family and friends later! 😉
I recently had the chance to talk with David and Annie of A Tale Ahead Photography, a husband and wife team based out of San Francisco, CA that specialize in photographing the “yes!” in surprise proposals. We wanted to know, as photographers, what their advice is for capturing that special moment. Here’s what they had to say.
How can the proposer get away with having photographers there without being seen?
