We have got the some secrets to be sure you succeed if you have ever thought about photographing a proposal! Between the elements of a nervous and surprise groom-to-be, a lot could go wrong. Lower the risk. Walkthrough one day before using some and the groom-to-be at the same time of day he’s getting down on one knee. A walkthrough will help get everybody on the same page and place the groom. They will be discovered and fixed, if there are any holes in the plan.

- Prove Him Where to Kneel
Educating him about placement and the angle is vital. Ensure proposal photography positioned so that when they are facing each other, you can see the context all and both of the profiles. We did not do our job, if we cannot see him down on one knee, her response, and the environment around them in one shot. 1 photograph should be able to tell the story.
- Use a Long Telephoto Lens

Everything occurs so quickly friends.
