An island vacation is dreamy no matter what your destination may be, but it’s hard to imagine a more romantic gesture than a surprise proposal, especially while on vacation in gorgeous Ibiza. Ryan planned to surprise his lovely fiancée while on a trip to Ibiza, Spain and every last detail was just as perfect as one could hope for.
A surprise proposal takes a lot of careful planning, a ton of romance and a little bit of luck. The setting for this special moment is so important, and Ryan chose a gorgeous spot right by the seaside tucked away on the romantic island of Ibiza. Ryan brought his fiancée to a secluded seaside viewpoint at sunset to pop the question. As he got down on one, knee both Ryan and his fiancée glowed with excitement and then with celebration when she said yes. The magical and tender emotions captured on camera during the surprise proposal will be cherished by this lovely couple for many years to come.
Since it’s quite impossible to recreate the emotion from a moment as special as a surprise proposal in a later photo shoot, Ryan chose to work with Gypsy, a professional local photographer in Ibiza. Gypsy snapped some incredible images from afar, staying low key so as to get some natural shots and of course being careful not to be seen. Working stealthily at first, the photographer made sure that the most magical moments between Ryan and his fiancée on this special day in Ibiza were captured perfectly and can be treasured forever.
The sun was setting and the light was playing out in sparkles all across the beautiful Mediterranean Sea, providing a picturesque backdrop and quite a dreamy location for a surprise proposal. As he got down on one, knee both Ryan and his fiancée glowed with excitement and then with celebration when she said yes. The natural, non-posed images feature such raw emotion and incredible romance; the true feelings of the moment. The magical and tender emotions captured on camera during this surprise proposal will be cherished by Ryan and his fiancée for many years to come.
The Photo Shoot
Following the super natural photos of the actual proposal came some more portrait style and posed photos typical of an engagement photo shoot. After the surprise, Gypsy revealed herself and made sure the couple’s perfect day finished on a high note; suggesting the perfect locations and brimming with local tips. Focusing on the romantic engagement photos now, Gypsy captured lovely shots of Ryan and his fiancée embracing on the beach and exchanging tender smiles just after their proposal. Playing with angles and lighting, Gypsy made sure to get a variety of photos; working with the couple to create beautiful and memorable shots.
No proposal photo shoot is complete without some photos of the bride-to-be’s gleaming ring, and Gypsy took some lovely up-close shots of the ring Ryan gave his fiancée. Smiling, she proudly holds up her ring to the camera, and then Gypsy zooms out for some full-length shots. The rings and Ryan’s fiancée look absolutely stunning, and the couple’s surprise proposal in Ibiza is one they’ll never forget, thanks to the work of our local vacation photographer.
