Emotional and loving Paris surprise proposal at Eiffel Tower Trocadero
This was an emotional and loving Paris surprise proposal at Eiffel Tower Trocadero on a beautiful, sunny day in the summer. Not only did we have a beautiful day, but take a look at the lady here, her name is Mika, and she was absolutely stunning. I instantly fell in love with her dress and her shoes. It was colorful and feminine and romantic, and perfect for summer. It’s the kind of dress I’d love for myself, and she wore it so well. I was immediately struck by her, she also had a spirit about her that was difficult to describe. No wonder Chris fell in love with her. She really has a beautiful aura, and Chris is no slouch himself. I loved his suit!
I never intended to photograph Paris surprise proposals. In fact, I spent most of my career as a landscape and travel photographer, and I love architecture too. But moving to Paris lit something within me. I started experimenting with portraiture and fell in love with it. Pretty much right after my very first surprise proposal, which was in December and cold, but oh-so-memorable! Since that time, I’ve focused my business on couples, and my favorite couples photography is surprise proposals in Paris. There is something so magical about photographing couples in love in Paris. I’m already in love with Paris, and have been for years, but seeing Paris daily through my camera lens and through the eyes of couples in love is something really, really special. To be a part of an intimate moment that people have dreamed of their entire lives, like a Paris surprise proposal, is really very special and something I take very personally and cherish.
In addition to photographIt’s my joy to work with gentlemen and ladies coming to Paris who wish to propose marriage to the one they love. I help them locate the perfect location, coordinate logistics, and of course, then I’m there to capture the big moment, and also create some beautiful Paris engagement photos.
Chris, who lives in Canada, contacted me about planning his Paris surprise proposal. He wanted his proposal to Mika to be special, and with a good view of the Eiffel Tower. So we settled on the Trocadero area of Paris, with a grand view of the Eiffel Tower. I was there waiting for them bright and early at Trocadero, before the tourist crowds descend. Mika had no idea Chris was going to propose, and she was overcome with emotion. What happens when my clients are overcome with emotion? I become overcome with emotion! It’s really hard sometimes to keep the tears of happiness from dribbling down my cheeks, because I’m truly so happy for my couples. No really, I am and I take it to the extreme. I have what’s called an HSP, aka Highly Sensitive Personality. Things that don’t bother others, bother me. Things that don’t make other people emotional, make me emotional. How could you not get a tear in your eye when you see how happy Mika is?
It was my blessing and good fortune to have the opportunity to photograph both Chris and Mika’s surprise proposal in Paris. This morning will stay with me for a long time, and wish for them so much happiness, just like they felt on this memorable day in Paris.
