Engagement season is soon to be upon us. The holidays seem to provide the perfect romantic back-drop for popping the question. Many times those who are asking the question have spent many hours painstakingly planning the perfect proposal.
But what about the perfect surprise proposal picture? I mean, after all, you want to make sure you document this momentous occasion with a nearly flawless photograph or video, right? In other words, you don't want to screw it up!
Here are a few ways you can "capture" this moment while you're capturing her heart ...
Pay a Professional!
This is a surefire way to ensure you get top notch photos of your proposal. With a professional photographer, you can coordinate time and place and rest easy that it is in capable hands!
Find a Family Member or Friend to Help You!
This is another great way to capture your special moment. Picking a trusted confidante (who hopefully has some photography skills, too!) is a wonderful way to get all the pics you want of your proposal, without the added burden of paying a professional. Be sure to go over all the details though, so no stone is left un-turned! You'll need to cover things like where they're going to hide or will they be tagging along with you and be a part of the "surprise" proposal, camera equipment (smart phone or professional camera), flash/lighting, etc.
Do It Yourself!
This may sound impossible, but with the right equipment this is possible. And with the right equipment, I mean...The Ring Cam! This gizmo is pretty cool. It is a ring box with a hidden camera in it! You can rent it or buy it. This camera-equipped ring box allows you to record the whole proposal from a very unique and intimate perspective!
Plan Proposal During an Event Where Lots of Pics Will Be Taken
Consider proposing during the family Christmas dinner or during your partner's birthday party where pictures are likely to be taken in abundance, whether it's your friends with their smart phones or a professional photographer on the scene. Just make sure you coordinate with someone to be at the right place at the right timefor the special moment!
Enlist a Passerby
This could be tricky and potentially backfire, but you could ask a random person to take a picture of the two of you and then get down on your knee and surprise everyone. (including your picture-taker!) The drawbacks are many with this one, but it could work!
No matter what method you choose, we here at Mullen Bros. Jewelers wish you the best of luck and hope your pictures turn out spectacularly!
