A Romantic Surprise Beach Proposal in Praia do Guincho

A romantic trip to the beach in Praia do Guincho, close to Lisbon and Cascais, Portugal turned into the memory of a lifetime for Mario and his girlfriend. While walking along the sea, imagine the shock and surprise of his girlfriend when Mario got down on one knee!

Thanks to a vacation photographer, a surprise seaside proposal was captured with a gorgeous engagement session that followed.

More couples are having their proposals photographed, but this can be difficult while on holiday. Mario found the perfect vacation photographer when he found Silvia, a Lisbon based photographer. Silvia accompanied Mario and his girlfriend to the picturesque and windswept beach in Praia do Guincho.

Mario knew that his marriage proposal was something that would be remembered for the rest of their life. It’s a story to be shared with friends, family and even strangers- everyone loves a romantic proposal! He planned a surprise proposal with a hidden photographer.

He brought his girlfriend to a lovely public beach so it would be easier for the photographer to capture “paparazzi” type photos of Mario popping the question. The photographer pretended to be a passer-by and captured Mario’s moment perfectly and candidly!

Planning the Secret Engagement

Mario knew the dramatic and photogenic beach of Praia do Guincho outside of Lisbon would be the perfect location for his secret proposal he was planning. Known for cliffs and white-capped surf, Praia do Guincho is a well-known beach with beautiful views of the Atlantic.

Following the couple, the secret photographer snapped casual photos of the couple having an intimate stroll along the beach. Once Mario reached the perfect secluded spot, he paused to allow the photographer to take the time to get the unique paparazzi style photo of the moment leading up to the big question!

Engagement Photos

After the proposal, the photographer was introduced and an ocean-side engagement shoot occurred. The beautiful couple glowed! Their love for each other was clear in the pictures taken on the shore. Rustic coastal scenes provided a timeless backdrop for the newly engaged couple with the excitement of the proposal still new and palpable!

Mario had clearly taken care to make sure that both he and his now fiancé were both dressed in complementary clothes and colors. The casual, yet chic, wardrobe ensured that their photos would always be timeless! The black and white monochromatic scheme also created a romantic contrast against the pastel ocean scene.
