For one man, a secret proposal in Lisbon was not enough. He had to find the best view in the most charming neighborhood, and a professional engagement photographer to capture every moment. The result? A proposal photo shoot this couple will never forget.
Secret Proposal Photo Shoot in Beautiful Alfama, Lisbon
Built on a dense rock surface, Alfama was largely unaffected by the Great Lisbon Earthquake of 1755. It is, therefore, the oldest of Lisbon’s districts. Alfama offers an authentic Portuguese and Moor cultural experience which blends effortlessly with modern times. The narrow pedestrian-only pebbled streets, lined by whitewashed houses come to life with locals and the distinct fado rhythms winding around each corner.
On a delightfully beautiful day in this quaint Lisbon district, Jason and April walked through the steep alleyways. It was the day that Jason had chosen to propose to April, and thanks to the assistance of Daniela, our professional proposal photographer, everything was arranged perfectly.

Admiring the azulejo adorned walls, April had no idea what awaited her. Jason stopped to take a selfie with his soon-to-be fiancé and discretely sent it to Daniela, who was already waiting at the panoramic bar of beautiful Hotel do Chiado.
How Does it Feel to Propose in Portugal?
As they arrived, Jason asked for a table on the grass. Their local engagement photographer had called ahead and, with the help of the manager, reserved the best table. April floated in with her soft black dress and gladiator sandals. While Jason looked ever so dapper in a dark blue t-shirt and his sneakers.
The view was exquisite. The clear blue sky above them and rustic-red rooftops stretching out bellow. The famous Sao Jorge Castle standing proudly in the distance. Jason casually asked a stranger to take a picture of them with his phone. The stranger was none other than Daniela, whom he had already met via Skype before leaving for their romantic Portugal holiday.
After taking the picture, Daniela handed back the phone. As Jason placed it in his pocket with his one hand, he pulled out a small box with the other and knelt down on one knee. April gasped ever so slightly as he gently took her hand and asked the most important question, ‘Will you marry me?’
As April said yes and Jason slid the ring on her finger, Daniela made use of her front-row seat. She snapped away, capturing every moment. The other tourists and locals cheered. It could not have been more perfect.
A Moment to Last a Lifetime
With their own personal paparazzi photographer, the couple felt like royalty. The smile on April’s face said it all. She beamed as she showed off her ring, the only thing more spectacular than the view.
After a few more pictures, Daniela took the couple to another site for an even more private photoshoot. The view was still incredible. Jason held his fiancé in a warm embrace as they both acknowledged the magnitude of the moment they were in.
They shared a kiss, April giggled, and their personal engagement photographer caught every second. The delicate hues of the buildings created a romantic backdrop for each picture, which Daniela framed flawlessly.
At the end of the day, Jason called the experience breathtaking. Saying, “I could not thank Daniela and Localgrapher more for helping me with this special moment in my life.” April simply exclaimed, “[Daniela] was the best!”
These gorgeous pictures will serve as the ultimate memento from their romantic holiday in Lisbon. And now they will always remember the exact moment their new lives began with a picturesque proposal in the heart of Portugal.
