TIPS FOR PLANNING A SURPRISE PROPOSAL IN ORLANDO
One of the best ways you can surprise her is making sure to hire an incognito photographer who will capture the moment from afar. For the majority of us ladies out there, having beautiful quality photos of the special moments in our lives is very important!
TIPS FOR GETTING GREAT PROPOSAL PHOTOGRAPHY
When hiring a surprise proposal photographer in Central Florida, you’ll want to collaborate with them on picking an ideal place to propose that will not only delight the love of your life, but also have a great atmosphere for capturing this defining moment in your lives. Timing can be difficult when it comes to surprises, so I suggest hiring the photographer to be in the area ready to go within a 30 minute time window.
THE BEST TIME OF DAY TO PROPOSE
If you’re planning to propose outdoors, did you know there is actually a best time of day to propose in? Once you’ve chosen your proposal day, think about the season of year it is, and look up what time the sun sets. If you’re proposing in the warmer months, mornings and evenings are ideal to avoid the intense heat of the midday sun, and the unflattering light it creates. A couple of hours before Sunset is such a romantic time, which is why we photographers call it ‘golden hour‘. Be sure to consult your photographer for an ideal time to propose to make the most of natural light!
IDEAS OF WHAT TO WEAR TO PROPOSE
This is the tricky part- because you’ll want to be dressed nicely for the moment, but if you are going to a trail or gardens you’ll also want to wear something natural. Most women would also want a heads up to be wearing something nice, so this is where you’ll have to get creative!
CHAMPAGNE, FLOWERS & CANDLELIGHT
Have champagne on hand, give her a bouquet of flowers, or put together a picnic lunch to enjoy together to celebrate the moment. If you really want to give her an amazing surprise, hire an event planner to put together a romantic little candelit setup for you two on the beach, or a garden, or string up some lights above a blanket in the forest.
TIPS FOR PICKING YOUR PROPOSAL DATE & LOCATION
Choose the day you propose carefully, since this will be your engagement anniversary in the years to come. Is there a day that’s meaningful to you both? The day you first met, or had your first kiss? Some people choose to propose on holidays, but keep in mind the personality of your future fiancé before you propose in front of all your family members. Some people enjoy being in the spotlight and sharing that moment, however it’s also very romantic to create an intimate moment with just the two of you before you tell the whole world.
In light + love,
