There are moments in life that simply ought to be captured on camera — and your proposal is one of them. Whether you've been planning out an extravagant way to pop the question for months, or you recently decided you're ready to take the leap of faith, there are several fantastic reasons why you should ask a photographer to be there for the surprise!
The Love of Your Life Will Thank You
Even if he or she isn't usually a big fan of having photos taken, a proposal is a once-in-a-lifetime event that you both will want to look back on years from now. Having a photographer (like us!) take photos of the reaction, the ring and any laughs or tears is a great way to show you put a significant amount of time and effort into the day.
Just be sure to find a sneaky way of having your soon-to-be fiancee dress nicely and/or get all dolled up for the photos!
The Photos Are Great for Announcements
Especially if you're planning a proposal with just the two of you and no family or friends around to see it live, photographs of the big moment are the perfect way to announce it to all those you love! You can use them for engagement announcements, engagement party invitations, save-the-dates or your wedding website!
You Can Turn the Moment into an Engagement Session
Want to have more photos taken after they say "Yes!"? Plan on turning the proposal into a full engagement session!
And if you're needing a little extra help with narrowing down the right location for the special day, take a look at our favorite engagement session locations right here in Louisville!
The Proposal is a Part of Your Story Together
Sometimes, words simply can't do a love story justice. With so many memories over a few decades together, it will mean that much more when you have something tangible (like beautiful photographs) to hold onto and collect that show different pieces of your story over time.
There's nothing that quite compares to the level of quality a professional photographer can give to you, especially for a moment that's so important. Between having someone there who knows how to be a bit stealthy about taking photos from afar, ensuring that the images are print-worthy, and avoiding any photobombers in the background, you'll be glad you hired an expert (or two, if you contact Jeff and Michele!).
