Proposal Series Part 2: Implement & STICK TO THE PLAN

PIN

Proposal series part 2 is short and sweet.  You already have a solid plan in place, now STICK TO IT.  I know this sounds obvious, but all that planning will go to waste if you decide to go rogue in the final minutes.  Try not to deviate from all that was discussed regarding the game plan .  Remember, the lighting and placement is important, so if you decide that you’d rather stand somewhere else, or in a different lighting set up, it will be much harder for me to capture the moment in the BEST way possible.  I am set up in a location out of site and I have gotten some test shots with that specific lighting, so going all cowboy at the last second will not be super helpful for anyone Jack.  HOWEVER, should there be a need to deviate slightly, it is super important that we are in communication with one another leading up to your arrival (via text message).  Homegirl may decide that she doesn’t want to go up to that specific location that you have picked out, or there could be a huge mass of people.  Play it cool, let me know what’s going on, and try to make your way back to the intended spot.  This is where a contingency plan is nice to have in place.  This is different for every proposal, which is why it is important to hire a professional who knows the landscape, and knows how to deliver under pressure and on the fly if necessary.

Sending me a RECENT photo of you and your significant other will help me to spot you and to be ready to capture that amazing moment.  I will send you a photo of myself as well, so you can kind of be on the lookout for me, so you know that I am in place before you pop the question.

I recommend taking a knee.  You will look like a romantic badass and like a bonafide stud.  It shows that sweet lady that you are there to serve her.  Plan out what you want to say as well.  “I love you, will you marry me,” works, but we can do so much better than that fellas.  If we want to spend the rest of our life with this person we better have some damn good reasons.  So share one or two of your top reasons for being crazy over this gal (or guy if that’s how you roll).  Rehearse your proposal out loud beforehand (preferably with her not around), because in the moment you may just default to, “I love you, will you marry me?”  You got this, and I am there to support you and capture a memory that every time you look at will transport you directly back that moment in time, to that promise, to that question.
