The Importance of Photographing a Proposal

Men, let’s be honest. You are never quite sure what it is that your woman wants even though you try time and time again. It’s okay though it’s not like you can read her mind….or can you? I’m about to let you in on a little secret. In a survey, over 1,000 women were asked about how important it was to them that the moment of proposal was captured through photo or video. Results showed that photos or videos of the proposal ranked higher than picking out the perfect ring. So get ahead of the game and give her what she really wants!

One of the greatest memories you have with your significant other is the day that you propose. It’s the day that you decide to spend the rest of your life together. This moment is something you will cherish forever. Hiring a professional photographer on this very important day can minimize the risk of unplanned accidents or photobombs that will most likely happen during your proposal. Photography is all about timing and sometimes, no matter how hard you may try, your timing is off. Let a professional help you with the nervous jitters and capture your special moment so you only have to focus on proposing to your gorgeous bride.

Ok, let’s say you aren’t the outgoing type. Perhaps you want it to be a very personal moment only shared between you and your fiancé. Are you worried that hiring a photographer will be distracting? No worries, your proposal can still be private even though a professional photographer is present. We are very sneaky ninjas and this is our passion. A photographer can help you ensure the moment is beautiful, intimate, and goes smoothly without any interruptions. Now, this does not mean that if you hire a professional photographer there will be an entire photoshoot to go along with it (unless you’d prefer that of course!) Hiring a professional simply means that you will have beautiful, high quality photos that you can look back at forever, not to mention they make fabulous, personalized save-the-date invitations! Hire a professional and shock her on your special day with the ultimate picture perfect moment.

When They Don’t Choose You.
  I woke up and this was on my mind and heart today. I want to talk about when a client, OR a person doesn’t choose you. I thought, wow, this isn't just for a wedding photographer like myself, but for everyone! Let’s face it, at some point everyone will face rejection whether in business, relationships, or life. I can just imagine a man sitting at the table with his face in his hands, as his wife pushes divorce papers in front of him. I can see the girl who didn’t get picked for the cheerleading team. I see a new salesman who can’t seem to meet his quota at the car dealership, and he feels like a failure. Mr. Wall street man gets hand ...
