I definitely see the challenges and the emotional intensity of arranging a Venice proposal and an engagement photo shoot and actually helping in a good planning contributes a lot making proposal photosession by far my favourite professional service as a photographer.
As a surprise proposal photographer in Venice, I try to offer the support that could make things easier for guys that choose Venice as the place where to ask for a future together and to hear a YES in an unique scenery.
Each session will be very personal in nature and fine tuned according to the individual preferences.
Still, there are some common steps that may give an idea of a typical proposal photo-session:
We can arrange beforehand a place that is quite romantic and easily reachable for you at a time when light will be good, there I'll be waiting; actually my proposals image gallery may provide some ideas and I'll help actively in finding a place that is just right for the two of you..
Another idea is to pretend that I was hired to be your "vacation photographer" so we would have a reason to meet and to ahead for a photo walk together, the only difference is that in a moment apparently calm you'll be presenting the ring and I'll be ready to photographer her reactions.
This is a popular demand, we can arrange it in two ways, one would need to find a reason for me to be in the gondola with you, it is a bit more complicated but I'll be very close and images will show it.
A safer option is that we arrange before that you will take a gondola in a certain place and the propose in a specific location (Maybe under the bridge of sights). I'll be photographing you from a venetian bridge and then follow or wait for the gondola during its itinerary. At the arrival we can go ahead with an engagement photosession.
The actual proposal will be captures in a candid way.
Right after I typically recommend to spend some time between just the two of you, for her it will be a very intese moment and a big surprise. I'll be a fair distance away and still be able to take some emotional images.
After a few minutes we can go on for the second part of the session: an engagement session right after the surprise proposal.
This images will be more classic yet you both know there is a photographer around, I'll still do my best to get natural results capturing your emotions and personalities.
If you feel that Venice is the place where you want to "hear yes," and you like my images, let's get in touch so we can plan the creation of memorable memories that will be shared over and over all along your marriage. Now with friends, then children, and potentially even grandchildren in the future.
I'll so you soon a few images and then a bigger selection in an online gallery with the images that are ready to be chosen by you and then perfected with professional editing.
