Most of the would-be husbands spend a lot of time and energy in finding out the best way to propose to their beloved. They want the proposal to take place in a beautiful surrounding, with a romantic atmosphere and, why not, a professional engagement photographer capturing it.
At the same time they want it to be a real surprise for the girl and have things happen smoothly and successfully, just as if it were by chance. They do not want their plan to be discovered in advance.
Well, this is not so easy. Would be husbands get easily nervous and a special atmosphere might well put the girl in alert and make her guess what is going on.
Sanjee, a young gentlemen that lately hired me for a surprise wedding proposal photo service, had a very smart idea to overcome this problem.
A wedding proposal photo service is usually a reportage of intense joy. In most cases proposals are delivered as a surprise to the would be bride which, more often than not, causes an amazed yet passionate reaction. Therefore, no matter what the weather is like, joy will in any case pour out of the sky as a thunder out of the blue.
If you have already decided to propose to your sweetheart, you just need to find the ideal place.
Of course you can choose a place that is closely related to your love story, making the most of the sweet memories you attached to it. On the other hand, you might go for a special place, one you are not so familiar with. You might prefer a stunning destination, to enhance the surprise effect for your future wife and make her enthralled by the whole situation.
As a professional engagement proposal photographer I experienced plenty of times that Venice works wonders to this purpose. Why?
Most of the couples that get engaged in Venice have great love stories behind and before them.
Emily’s and Mason’s story is among the most charming ones I had the chance to hear. They met in their middle school times and started dating during their high school years.
When the day of their 10th anniversary was approaching, Mason prepared a gorgeous surprise for his beloved. He gave her a framed map of the world and pins to put on the places they would visit together with the promise to add their first pin very soon.
A few days later he asked her to pack her bags without revealing their destination. When she discovered they were heading to Venice she was overjoyed! They soon experienced the city’s beauty and romantic atmosphere.
On October 17, Mason offered her sweetheart a water taxi tour which had them land on the marvellous San Giorgio Island. There, with the enchanting background of the lagoon and San Marco Square, he delivered his wedding proposal. He took her hand, whispered sweet swords and Emily started to cry even before he fell down on his knees and asked her to marry him. They soon forgot the words they said at that time but will keep great souvenirs of the moment.
Indeed, to make his proposal unforgettable, Mason had hired a professional proposal photographer. The passionate couple portraits of their engagement photo service capture their intense feelings, overjoyed excitement and confidence in the future for years to come.
After the proposal they enjoyed a walk along the lagoon, almost ‘enlightened’ by their happiness and the Italian October’s Sun. The photographer made the most of the walk to portray with his pictures their love at its peak while they went on kissing, hugging, looking at the ring and at their bright future together.
A lovely story which is still going on and will keep further sweet surprises for this passionate couple.
