Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK?

 

The sooner, the better, my friend! Prime proposal spots and dates can be booked 6+ months in advance. But don't panic - I've pulled off miracles with as little as two days' notice. Just give me a holler ASAP and we'll make your dream proposal happen!

 

 

 

DO YOU ALSO DO ENGAGEMENT SESSIONS?

 

YES! It's pretty much the same thing if you ask me, with or without the question - I do engagement photos too! :)

 

 

 

HOW DOES THIS WHOLE "SURPRISE" THING WORK?

 

I'm a ninja when it comes to staying incognito! No - I will not be climbing trees or jumping over walls (you wish!), but I'll disguise myself properly with our surroundings. We'll have a secret code word/signal for when it's showtime. Then, I'll swoop in from my sneaky vantage point and capture every heart-melting moment without your partner suspecting a thing. And for all of this to work out, we will have a pre-session meeting before the big day to go over everything together and come up with a solid game plan.

 

 

 

CAN YOU HELP ME PLAN THE PERFECT PROPOSAL?

 

You know it! I'm an expert romantic idea machine. Whether you need the most epic backdrop, insider tips on making it extra meaningful, or literally any other support - I've got your back every step of the way. I'll even introduce you to my friendors, who can help you plan the entire thing, decorate, and pretty much provide you with anything you need!

 

 

 

DO YOU TRAVEL FOR PROPOSALS?

 

Does a golden retriever love tennis balls?? You betcha I do! I'll hop on a plane, train or llama to anywhere your dream proposal location is. Just say the word and your personal proposal paparazzi will be there!

 

 

 

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN YOUR PROPOSAL PACKAGES?

 

All the essentials to preserve those priceless memories forever - including timeline planning, me sneakily capturing the entire thing from multiple angles, and a gallery of gorgeous high-res images delivered soon after. Digital downloads, prints, albums, and other goodies are available as add-ons!

 

 

 

HOW WILL YOU REMAIN UNSEEN?

 

Between my spy-level stealth and Hollywood star acting skills, along with carefully mapped-out shooting spots, your partner won't have a clue I'm there as your photographer! I'm talking discreet parking, camouflaging the cameras, the attitude, the role-play (thanks D&D!)...

 

 

 

WHAT IF WE GET NERVOUS OR FLUSTERED?

 

Happens to the best of us! If you start feeling flustered, just take a few deep breaths and make eye contact with me. I'll shoot you a subtle wink or thumbs up to reset the groove. This is supposed to be fun!

 

 

 

CAN YOU CAPTURE THE MOMENT WE TELL FRIENDS/FAMILY?

 

Absolutely! When you share the happy news, the look on your loved ones' faces is priceless. I'm always down to stick around and document those excited hugs, cheers, and happy tears, too! PS: I can also help your families/friends hide away and come out after they say yes - you won't have to worry about organizing them while trying to lure your partner to the proposal location. Just hook me up with your family on a group text or something similar, and I'll handle the rest.

 

 

 

WHAT IF THE WEATHER DOESN'T COOPERATE ON OUR SCHEDULED DATE?

 

Don't you worry! As a pro-surprise proposal photographer, I've got backup plans for my backup plans. We'll closely monitor the forecast and have multiple locations/timing options ready. If we need to reschedule last minute, I'll bend over backward to make it work another day. But if the show must go on, rain or Texas tornado...🌪️ Nah - I ain't going out there if tornado sirens are going off. I know - it'd be so damn cool to capture one of those unbelievable photos, you proposing with thunders and a tornado in the background... But I have clients waiting for me to show up on their wedding day. I can't be irresponsible like that! LOL!

 

 

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE'S A TRUE EMERGENCY AND WE NEED TO POSTPONE?

 

Life can throw curveballs, I totally get it. If a real deal-breaker pops up, just give me a heads-up ASAP. I'll be as flexible as a rubber band to reschedule at zero extra cost. Your peace of mind is priority #1 - this is supposed to be a happy, stress-free occasion! We'll make your new date work, no matter what. This doesn't mean you can reschedule "just because" - I only offer this for "REAL EMERGENCIES".
