How to Capture the Perfect Proposal Photos

A proposal… is something that you have planned out (and even dreamed about) for so long! Now you have picked out the perfect ring and are all ready to pop the question. It will be a moment the two of you remember forever. The moment that you agree to get married to that special person.

Many times a proposal happens when no one else is around, or when you least expect it. Sometimes, it has been planned out intricately. Either way, you will want to look back on that moment – and the only real way to do that is by capturing proposal photos of you asking.

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to show your children one day – or even your grandchildren – the face she had when you got down on one knee and pulled out that amazing engagement ring? Or even the tears running down her cheeks as you hug her excitedly after she said “yes!” Those are such special moments.

So, how can you be sure to get those amazing proposal photos that you want? Here are a few ideas we have:

The Ring Cam

We saw this really great new product that we wanted to share, the Ring Cam. It is a ring box that has a camera inside of it, so you can be sure to capture the moment on your own. Pretty cool, huh? We thought so, too.

With the camera, you can start recording with the simple push of a button, then have awesome audio and high-definition video footage of your proposal. To top it off, Ring Cam will even edit your video footage, so you have some amazing memories to have for years to come… and show off to all your family and friends.

Hire A Wedding Photographer

Another really cool way to capture those moments is to hire a wedding photographer to be there for the moment. This could be nice because you do not have to worry about anything having to do with the photos or video… that is what the photographer is for.

If you are not sure that you want to get a photographer to shoot your proposal, then you have to check out this couple’s photos. They decided to have a wedding photographer take photos of them as a couple in Santorini, Greece, she was not realizing that he had planned to pop the question the entire time. They got an entire session of beautiful photos in this absolutely gorgeous location, and a wonderful set of proposal photos to enjoy later on. Check out their entire Greece engagement session by Anna Sulte Photography here. Besides Greece, other popular romantic locations in Europe are Venice, Paris or Rome.

Ask A Friend

If you know that you will be popping the question when you are around other people, and you do not want to hire a photographer for this, why not just ask someone you know? Even though getting professional engagement and wedding photography may be very important (these are the photos you will be looking back at on your fiftieth wedding anniversary, so you want them to be amazing!) if you just want a few photos taken by your friend or a family member, that is perfectly fine too!

Will you be proposing during dinner, or at a New Year’s Eve party? Or, maybe you want to ask when you are at the top of the Empire State Building. Any way you choose to ask, you can always ask a friend or family member ahead of time to be at the location (but maybe stay hidden to keep the surprise). They can position themselves in a good place, and snap a few shots for you so you can have those proposal photos to keep forever!

So, if you are planning a proposal to the person of your dreams, make sure you plan ahead if you want to get proposal photos of the event!
