Eric wanted to propose to his beautiful girlfriend while they were in Berlin, Germany, and he chose the gorgeous Viktoriapark as the setting. He wanted it to be surprise, and also wanted to have someone capture every special moment. Cristina was able to work with Eric to find the perfect location and capture this proposal with beautiful results.
On Bended Knee
The natural beauty of Viktoriapark in downtown Berlin provided the perfect backdrop to this sweet surprise proposal. The green leafy trees overhanging the couple acted like a secret retreat, setting the scene for Eric’s proposal to his girlfriend, who had no idea exactly what the day would bring. Cristina, our proposal photographer in Berlin, was able to capture each and every special moment, from Eric’s initial hint when he pulled the ring from his pocket, to his lovely girlfriend’s astonished and emotional face. And, of course, the moment that she said “yes”!
A couple’s first reactions are often not captured in traditional engagement photo shoots, since the actual moment has passed. But with a professional proposal shoot, photographers can take wonderful pictures of the exact instant in time when a girlfriend becomes a fiancé.
Since Cristina was able to keep a tasteful distance, the Eric and his girlfriend were more comfortable sharing their affection in front of her. They are not posing during the shoot, but sharing a genuine moment. They are living in the now, enjoying their special time together, forgetting that the photographer is there.
Let’s See the Ring!
After the initial emotion of the proposal was over, Cristina took several professional photographs of Eric and his girlfriend, showing off her beautiful new engagement ring. Using the foliage and landscape of the park to its advantage, Cristina was able to take images from several angles and in many poses, ensuring that Eric and his new fiancé will have the very best pictures to remind them of their special day together.
Cristina had the couple show off the ring in a variety of poses, but none of which felt forced or unnatural. It is almost like they’re sharing the moment with a good friend, instead of a camera. Cristina was also able to do a few creative and interesting poses, such as Eric showing the ring behind his girlfriend’s back. And she also captured several sweet and private moments, without being intrusive.
Like any good professional photographer knows, the pictures should not be invasive or too “in your face”, but rather be intimate and warm. Cristina was able to let the couple thoroughly enjoy their newly engaged status while taking images of their obvious love for each other.
Memories to Last Forever
Eric and his fiancé can treasure their time in Berlin with terrific memories, as they enjoy their professional photos every day. Not only can they share these images with friends and the rest of their family, but they can also use them for their upcoming wedding notices and even décor.
