Aside from your wedding day, one of the most memorable moments in your life will be the decision you and your significant other make to spend the rest of your lives together. Capturing that moment is something you’ll appreciate for the rest of your life! There will be a lot of excitement, emotions, and possibly even some shrieks, so being able to relive it is essential. If that isn’t convincing enough, here are a few more reasons to hire a professional proposal photographer!
A proposal is a once-in-a-lifetime moment that you both will want to remember for years to come, even if your partner isn’t generally a fan of having photos taken. A fantastic way to show that you put a lot of time and effort into the day is to have a photographer take pictures of the response, the ring, and any laughter or tears. Not only will you both be able to look back on these photos with fond memories, but your loved ones will also enjoy being able to see this exciting moment in your lives!
Photographs of the important occasion are the ideal way to share it with everyone you care about, particularly if you’re planning a proposal with just the two of you without family or friends around to witness it in person. They can be used for save-the-dates, engagement party invites, engagement announcements, and even your wedding website!
An added benefit to using a proposal photo as your save-the-date is that you can get them in the mail immediately—no need to wait for your formal engagement photo session. Although, speaking of formal engagement sessions…
While this option depends on how much time you have available and how much crying you anticipate (from both you and your partner!), many photographers can work with you to go right from the proposal into your official engagement shoot. If you’re working with a professional photographer like Sam Guerpo, they’ll even be able to suggest the best clothing to wear and the most beautiful locations near your chosen engagement spot.
It may be tempting to ask your friend to take photos for you, but chances are high that your friend won’t know how to angle themselves properly to get the most flattering angle. What will they do if the lighting is bad? Are they comfortable enough with a camera to get the photo at exactly the right time?
When you hire a professional photographer for your proposal, you don’t need to worry about any of these questions. After all, we are professionals for a reason!
