Proposing to your loved one can be nerve wracking yet exciting. As Amsterdam proposal photographer who witnessed and captured over 70 proposals in the heart of Amsterdam, I have some tips on how to plan your proposal.
There are many different ways on how to plan your proposal. But here are top 2 ways that I highly recommend to all my couples who are planning a proposal
1. Paparazzi style – Best way if you want to keep the proposal (and of course the photoshoot) a surprise and spontaneous. I, of course will help you with the best locations, times, the best way to get on one knee and pop the question. And you wonder what I will be doing? I’ll be pretending as a random stranger taking pictures of the city and be ready for you guys 😉
2. Proposing half way through – This is another approach my couples choose. I do personally like this approach so I understand the vibe of my couples and plan the proposal accordingly. Even with this approach, I will help you plan the exact place + time for you to pop the question while still keeping the surprise.
Few other helpful things to keep in mind before you propose in Amsterdam
The location – No idea where in Amsterdam to propose? I am here to help you figure it out. As Amsterdam photographer who worked all over Amsterdam, I do have some favorite spots, spots that has best view, spots that has the best light etc. All I want to know from you is, what exactly do you imagine when you imagine your proposal.. and voila! I will give you list of spots that you can choose from.
The time – The best time? There are two different times of the day I highly recommend. Early in the morning just after the sunrise – for the best light + less crowd in the city. Or little late in the evening closer to sunset – again for the best light. I cannot stress this enough!!
What happens right after the proposal – First, I will give you some privacy because.. come on! It’s such a huge step and I’m pretty sure your partner has many questions/happy/shock.
After that – yayyyy! We take some fun “just engaged” pictures and some gifs and pop some champagne or do a little dance if that’s your thing.
