If you landed on this page, you either going to propose and need someone to capture the moment for you. Thank you for visiting and congratulations: smart decision! Wedding proposal is one of the few things in life that should be professionally photographed.
And while hiring a professional paparazzi photographer may look as going a little overboard, the moment is priceless and should be captured.
I have a plan with Golden Gate Bridge in the background. I've worked out all the pitfalls and all you need to do is to follow simple instructions and you will get a nice set of photos. Or of course you can plan it by yourself and send me the instructions. The fee is not going to be high if the proposal doesn't involve a band or Mariachi. To be precise is $300 on a weekday.
Unlike any other type of photography, proposal photography involves elements of secrecy, surprise and can not be fully controlled. Therefore, it needs to be carefully planned. Sometimes it goes to the extent of what exact angle and at what particular point your body should be aligned for a perfect shot. There are a lot of factors to consider. One is for the photographer to be near you without raising suspicions of your bride-to-be. Another is bystanders who can suddenly block the shot. Even how far you extend your hands or what are your height differences can be a factor. And these are just a few examples.

The Fine Print
The pricing options outlined above are limited to a simple outdoor proposal sessions. Proposals that require complex planning, coordination with family members, parking arrangements, working with other vendors such as band, restaurant crew, musicians and limo drivers are not included and require a custom quote. All packages above are designed to capture the actual moment of the proposal that lasts just a few moments. 30 minutes safety windows that are given to each client are not actual shooting time. The cost of an individual file if not included in the package is $50.
