Are you ready to make your love story continue forever?
PROPOSAL IN PARADISE
First of all, we want to let you know that we can go anywhere you want. We know how important and unique this moment is, so don't worry we will always find a way to capture your emotions.
Having a proposal in paradise is such a dream, and we know there are many different ways to do it.
Most of the resorts offer you special packages for these occasions; some include a dinner, a bottle of champagne, or mariachis.
You can plan this with your concierge.
Other options are to propose on the beach or around the resort locations.
We suggest you first organize when and how your proposal will be; once we have this information, we can adapt the photoshoot to your special moment.
WHEN DOES THE PHOTOGRAPHER APPEAR?
"Paparazzi sessions" are always one of the most requested sessions. For this photoshoot our photographer is capturing the moment from far away, and then when the "YES" moment arrives, the photographer gets closer to the couple. This is always a good option for almost empty places, so there is no risk of someone crossing in front of the camera.
It is also important to consider how far the photographer needs to hide. Remember that most of the time we have these sessions on the beach, and there are not a lot of places to hide the photographer.
Lifestyle Photo Shoots: we recommend this type of photo shoot because from the outset the couple knows they will have a photo session and they get ready for it.
We start taking photos around the resort and then when we arrive at the place of the proposal, previously accorded with the client, we distract one of the persons and the other gets ready with the ring!
For these sessions, we have the advantage that we are already with the couple so we will be right on the spot when the magic moment happens!
You need to have photos of his / her surprise reaction!
In our experience, we know the importance of the occasion, and we always advise allowing us to photograph the couple before, during, and after the proposal and not just exactly in the proposal moment. With this method, we can meet the couple a little bit more and we can make you feel more comfortable in front of the camera.
If your soulmate is not into photography sessions, no worries at all. There are many ways to approach our clients; we can pretend we are doing resort services photography or that it is an activity or game from the resort. We always find a way!
PERFECT TIME OF SESSION
In our past article: "How to choose the best times to take pictures with natural light" We already talked about the times we recommend for our couple's photoshoot but, for a proposal, we know this could be later, especially if you are planning a romantic dinner.
There is one important point you need to consider if this is your plan:
Probably you will have your romantic dinner around 7 or 8 pm; to have your photos taken at this time, we will require a lighting assistant and of course, we will use flash!
This depends on the location for Riviera Maya and Puerto Vallarta, it will be already dark for photography but, in Los Cabos, depending on the month, there may still be enough sunlight for photography.
Depending on the month of the year and location, around 7 or 8 pm, will be perfect for a sunset dinner session, especially in Riviera Maya as the sky looks beautiful but, you will need to consider that this sunlight is not enough to capture the sunset in photography.
Here is our last but not least important tip!
For these special occasions, we want you to feel to ask us any questions you may have and also let us know all your ideas.
It will be a pleasure to help you!
TOGETHER WE WILL PLAN THE PERFECT PROPOSAL.
