This season for us was full of Surprise Proposal shoots in Paris! We love capturing this special moment for our couples from around the world. Usually we work on one of the two scenarios. Here's a mini session, which included a surprise proposal following our first scenario. First, the couple comes for a regular shoot, like in this case of Chrissi and Michael from Germany, and during it when we give the signal that we are ready and have set up the cameras just right, and on that signal the proposal happens, followed by some more photos as an engagement session. The advantage of this type of proposal is that the couple already comes dressed extra nice for having their Paris Photoshoot, so the final photos look extra polished.
Another version is a total surprise, where we agree on the meeting place and pretend to be tourists photographing the area when the couple comes to the pre-arranged spot and we capture the moment secretly from the distance. After that, we approach the couple and do some more traditional portrait and engagement photos. This is the more risky type, but it also has the advantage of a bigger surprise to the partner that gets to say "Yes"!
