I will never forget the day that my husband proposed in beautiful Barcelona. The most exiting part of our day involved going to La Sagrada Famillia – a 100 year old church still under construction. He proposed in the middle of this miracle of architecture and human spirit, and there could not have been a more perfect spot for this moment to unfold.
This was one of the biggest, yet most intimate milestones in our life until our wedding. Thankfully, I kept a travel journal of our trip and boy did I go wild writing down my feelings on that day. The perfect phrase I used to capture the moment is ” I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry”.
Although, I am sure that we all remember our proposals since they change our lives. I wish we didn’t have to recall the aftermath of ours through a shaky selfies. It would have been great to have my reaction and the sheer warmth of the moment captured through professional photos.
This got me to thinking of doing secret photography sessions for those partners planning to propose. Of course, the person being proposed to will not be aware of our little plan. I think that the candid expressions will speak volumes, and will be remembered through the years to come.
