5 Steps to Plan the Perfect Proposal

01 Pick a Date & Time!

You have made up your mind you are going to propose to your partner. Where do you start? We recommend first picking the date that you plan on asking them to marry you. There are many reasons why picking a date is important; it allows you a deadline to ensure you get everything done in time for the big day, gives yourself enough time to get a ring, and lets you coordinate the date with any other important events.

Bring on your own bottle of champagne or wine to celebrate THE moment!

04 Photographer

DO Hiring a photographer can help you with many logistics such as when, lighting, style of photos, etc. The ultimate job of a proposal photographer is to capture the big moment without drawing too much attention, or sometimes any at all. 

DO NOT Some couples aren’t necessarily attracted to having other people there and would like to have something very intimate. If you don’t think they will want a photographer, we’d advise that you propose, then discuss an engagement shoot, that way you can choose your location, outfits, and any other elements.

05 Decor

You can bring flowers, props like signboards that say, “Will You Marry Me”, or anything that is special to you both.
