Proposing to your significant other is a once-in-a-lifetime moment you may have spent months planning.
And while the moment itself will be etched into your memory forever, there is nothing quite like having photographs to look back on.
Unlike the other pivotal pieces of your love story (engagement, wedding day), this one is much briefer. But that doesn’t mean it’s not worth capturing! In fact, because it goes by so quickly, that’s all the more reason to preserve the memory.
Here are five more reasons why you should consider having your proposal photographed.
- See Your Partner’s Reaction – Forever
You’ve dreamt about this moment for a long time – and planned it for even longer! Naturally, you can hardly wait to see how your partner reacts. Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could freeze the moment in time? Because when it happens, it will likely feel quicker than the snap of a finger. And you’ll want to travel back and watch it all unfold again.
Enter the proposal photographer! We can help you preserve that special moment so that you can see the joy, surprise, and love on your partner’s face in a way you may have altogether missed during the rush of emotions. AND don’t forget – you’ll be able to see your own reactions!
Pro tip: Remember that the proposal is the most important thing. Focus on the moment, and let your photographer get the perfect images. Be yourself, and don’t worry about posing for the camera. The best photographs are often the ones that capture the raw emotions.
- Celebrate Your Love Story
A proposal is another step along the path of your love journey, and documenting the moment is a beautiful way to celebrate the occasion. Once you have the photos, you can use them for your save-the-date cards and display them in your home. You might also include them in your wedding album alongside your engagement and wedding photos to show your full love story.
Overall, having these images will remind you of the love you share and the special moment that brought you one step closer together.
- Create a Moment to Share
Just like with your engagement and wedding, you aim to propose only once. So, capturing the memories is obviously important. With photographs, you can look back on that pivotal day and remember exactly how it went down.
And if there’s a story behind the photos, it adds to the experience – especially when you’re sharing your memories with family and friends. You may even end up sharing these pictures with your future children and grandchildren and telling the story of the moment Grandma or Grandpa said “yes!”
- Professional Quality Photographs
While smartphones are fine for photographing everyday moments, they’re not the best option for capturing your proposal. With a professional photographer, you’ll get high-quality photos that are well-lit, well-composed, and that you can frame and share. Plus, you’ll have various images to choose from, including close-ups, wide angles, and plenty of beautiful candid moments.
- Get to Know Your Photographer
Photographing your proposal is great for practical reasons, too. After the actual proposal, we’ll typically do a 30-45 minute mini couple’s photo session, which is an excellent opportunity to get acquainted with your potential wedding photographer right off the bat.
It’s also a great way to get comfortable working with them. And getting comfortable with the person you’ll be working closely with is imperative because comfort leads to trust, ultimately leading to amazing photos.
So, take this opportunity to capture your proposal and get a head start on getting to know your wedding photographer.
