Colorado Springs Proposal Photographer
Proposals are in the air! From about beginning of November to the end of the year, about 40% of the engagements happen. Come January, this makes for a very busy month of inquiries and bookings especially for photographers. If you are considering proposing to your partner, you should know that it is pretty popular to have that moment captured. It’s a story you’ll retell for years. So let me tell you why it’s smart to hire a photographer and for it to be me as your Colorado Springs proposal photographer.
Proposal Tips to Consider
To start, the majority of proposals are done on vacation, at a destination, meaningful location or during a special event. This means that for the proposer, you probably won’t have prior access to the location for planning. You also may not be aware of certain restrictions for the area. For example, right now Garden of the Gods main road has road construction which blocks the main entrance. Or that Rocky Mountain National Park requires timed entry reservations. From construction, to large event traffic, to covid restrictions. It’s incredibly helpful to have local knowledge, like a Colorado Springs proposal photographer, to navigate through the red tape.
Then, of course, there is the setup. Now, it could be super simple but many proposer’s want pictures, rose petals, champagne or other meaningful tokens for the proposal. In addition, wanting a big of privacy in a busy, tourist location is hard to come by. Knowing about a hidden location or magical, new spot is invaluable. Having a trusted person to help with these logistics and details is key to making the moment perfect for your partner (and you – so you aren’t stressed).
Finally, to tell the whole story of the proposal, it’s great to have photos of the setup, of the time lbefore the event and the moment. The best though, is that most proposals have enough time to take some engagement photos. For my clients, I have a preview for them same day or within 24 hours. That way you have a photo to post to announce on social media. Also, this usually will save you some time and money later. You’ll already have some great professional photos of the two of you to send save the dates and invitations.
There is a lot of work that goes into a proposal, so hire a professional Colorado Springs proposal photographer for when you pop the question.
