Memories Worth Everything

What to Expect During Your Proposal Session


Each proposal uniquely expresses your love, but a directed approach ensures that every moment is captured beautifully. Here's what you can expect during your proposal session with me:

HEADING TO THE PROPOSAL SPOT


As you and your partner reach the predetermined proposal spot, I'll follow behind (incognito) and be ready to pull out my camera when you propose. Whether it's a scenic overlook, a beautiful beach, or a meaningful location, your chosen spot sets the stage for the momentous occasion.

THE PROPOSAL MOMENT


When the time comes to pop the question, all eyes are on you and your soon-to-be fiancé. If you choose to kneel, I recommend staying down for at least 20 seconds to capture various angles in the photos. Every heartfelt expression and tender moment is expertly preserved, ensuring the essence of the proposal is captured authentically.

CELEBRATING WITH CHAMPAGNE


After the joyful "yes," it's time to celebrate! If prearranged, a bottle of champagne to celebrate the occasion and toast to your future together adds a special touch. The clinking of glasses and the fizzy bubbles add an extra touch of romance to this special moment, creating lasting memories to cherish.

TAKING IT ALL IN


As the excitement of the proposal settles, I'll take a moment to introduce myself and offer my congratulations. I'll step back for a brief pause to allow you and your partner to savor the moment together. Take a deep breath, soak in the love, and revel in the joy of your engagement.

CAPTURING THE MOMENT


After a brief pause, I'll invite you to take a stroll with me, capturing candid moments of joy and love between you both. Through guided simple prompts, I'll capture loving glances, sharing laughter, or stealing a kiss, these intimate moments paint a vivid picture of your love story.

CONCLUSION: WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR PROPOSAL SESSION


Your proposal session with me is an unforgettable experience filled with love, laughter, and genuine moments of connection.


From the anticipation of the proposal to the celebratory toast and beyond, every aspect is carefully curated to ensure your love story is beautifully captured in timeless photographs. As you take the next step together, prepare to create memories that will last a lifetime.
