How to Find a Photographer for a Surprise Candid Wedding Proposal

Do They Have Experience?

The first question you should ask a potential photographer is if they’ve shot candid wedding proposals in the past. If their answer is no, then it would probably be best to find a photographer who has experience in surprise proposals. You want to find someone who understands how to be discreet and still be able to capture meaningful photographs during the big moment.

Do They Have a Plan?

Let’s assume you’re speaking with a photographer who is experienced in this type of photography. Don’t think you’ll have to come up with the plan all on your own! Ask your photographer for their ideas and how they’ve gone about shooting candid wedding proposals in the past. By using the photographer’s experience and ideas, you’re sure to come up with a great plan that won’t get foiled.

Do They Have a Great Portfolio?

Last but not least is the question of your photographer of choice’s portfolio. Ask specifically to see shots taken during surprise wedding proposals, and then make your best judgment. Your images will be similar to those shot by the photographer in the past, so it’s important that you like the photographer, their portfolio, and their plan of action.

We felt extremely lucky to have Fusion shoot our wedding and engagement session. My wife and I had never been professionally photographed before and so we were probably a little awkward at first, but the Fusion team made us feel comfortable in a hurry.
