I love surprise proposals! Nothing reminds me more of my days as a newspaper photographer than documenting a proposal. From the anticipation, to capturing the decisive moment, it has everything that I loved about being a photojournalist. Plus we get to be a part of one of the most exciting events in a couple’s relationship.
An engagement is an extremely important milestone in your life. It can also be pretty nerve-racking. Believe me, I know from experience. I had a beautiful speech planned out, but that was not what came out of my mouth. Add to the nerves, the thought of someone hovering around taking photos during this monumental occasion and it can be a little overwhelming.
Don’t worry, it's possible to document the “big moment” without being obtrusive. Besides, once you get on your knee and the ring comes out she won’t notice anyone else.
