The idea behind secret proposal photography is to photograph something special that’s often not photographed. Just about everyone has a wedding photographer these days and some even have engagement shoots. But what about capturing the moment they say “yes”, as well as the moment they say “I do”?
Just like weddings, every proposal story is different - and I love that! It's a story that is only yours. It's a personal moment that (hopefully) will only happen once in your life... Here are a few proposal stories I've photographed so far.
As far as Erin knew, they were just having a relaxing weekend away with the dogs... Ellen had other ideas and asked me to photograph her proposal.
They live in Florida. She was on holiday with her parents. He stayed at home... Or so she thought! This is Craig & Megan's proposal story.
Safina thought they were just going for a walk around Fletcher Moss Park in Didsbury. She had no idea that Alex had asked me to follow them around the park and photograph his proposal...
Tom had originally planned to climb Snowdon and propose at the summit. But the weather had other ideas. That wasn't going to stop him proposing though! This is Tom & Naomi's, rather wet, but absolutely perfect Anglesey proposal story.
It was just like any other day for Leah. It was a big day for Christian though. He'd asked me to secretly tag along while they took the dogs for a walk... Oh and to take photos when he asked Leah to marry him 😍
As a documentary wedding photographer, I'm used to going unnoticed and capturing genuine emotions in the moment. In fact, my whole approach to wedding photography is about blending into the action without controlling it or getting in the way.
So, if you're considering asking your partner to marry you, then send me a message, I'd love to secretly photograph your proposal!
