"Capturing the Moment when the Moment Captures you. "

Proposals! There are not just for men anymore. The season of romance is here!

DSC_8977DSC_9727required=’1’/][/contact-form]      I have found working in photography, the person (not necessarily a male) who is doing the proposing wants to capture the moment. We recently captured and witnessed a magical proposal. Below is the story as well as some important tips for any would be proposer.

Tips for the proposer:

1. Choose your location and time of day carefully. Consult with your photographer.

2. Depending on your plan coordinate carefully allowing for some lost time.

3. Choose pieces of the proposal that is unique to your relationship; music, writings, location, witnesses.

In my recent proposal job, Angel who had been dating Neil for several years decided she wanted to propose. I am starting to see a change, it is not uncommon for women to ask men to marry them.  Angel had planned a dating anniversary celebration at a hotel in Newport Beach, which she knew would have lots of photo opportunities.  After hiring my services we discussed the details of her proposal. Alan encourage a particular location and time of day, The photographer can recommend not demand, after all it is not our day. Alan and I even suggest clothing and shoes that work with the scenery and event. Unfortunately, Angel had some hicups. Because of their love for each other you would never be able to tell from the pictures. Angel planned to arrive at the hotel and be standing under the gazebo shortly before the airplane, dragging the sign, Neil and Angel = € – Will you marry me? She wanted to have ring in pocket and an amazing sky as their background. We are sharing some  highlights of her proposal. Below are some hiccups she overcame.

    • getting lost, she wasn’t from the area, allow extra time
    • spelling error in her sign, thank goodness for photoshop
    • the engagement ring wasn’t ready in time, the jewelry store provided a temporary

Thank you, Ina Sechrest, photo stylist at Sechrest Photography
