There is nothing more romantic than having a photographer capture your proposal to your significant other. A vacation photographer was able to make sure that a man’s proposal was captured while he and his fiance were on holiday in Barcelona.
It has become more and more common for couples to have their engagements photographed, but it can become more difficult to have this done when you propose on a holiday. However, Erik was determined to have every moment of his proposal to his now fiance captured while they were visiting Barcelona, Spain. He made the decision to hire Jordi, one of our Barcelona photographers, to take photos of his secret proposal.
In order to keep the proposal a surprise, Jordi had to capture some photos like a paparazzi would. After devising a plan with Erik, Jordi discreetly followed the couple and was able to capture several very candid photos leading up to the couple’s engagement. Since Erik’s fiance was unsuspecting, Jordi was able to take several sweet and genuine photos of the couple taking in all of the sights and even taking a few selfies before Erik finally got down on one knee.

After taking a few more selfies on one of the tile mosaic benches, Erik surprised his fiance by getting down on one knee and pulling out a stunning engagement ring. When Erik took to his knee to pop the question to his beautiful girlfriend, Jordi was right there to capture every moment from the look of surprise on her face to the joy that radiated between the couple when she finally said yes.
The special moment between the two, young lovebirds was truly precious and is always incredible to have captured in photographs to look back on years down the road. It is also nice to have moments like this photographed, so they can be shared with family and friends when the engagement story is told.
The couple’s sweet kiss and smiles are all part of the genuine reactions that don’t often get captured in regular engagement photo shoots and are what makes a secret proposal photo shoot so special. Jordi was able to remain incognito for the proposal and was not identified as the couple’s photographer until after the initial excitement of the proposal died down.
After Erik proposed to his fiance, Jordi was revealed as the photographer and then began to take some posed and traditional engagement photos for the happy couple. Of course, no engagement photo shoot is complete with a beautiful photo of the ring. Several other photos were taken in different locations around Park Güell, the park where the proposal took place. The palm trees, stone walls, and vibrant tile-mosaic sculptures all made stunning backdrops for the couple’s photographs.
Because Erik hired Jordi to capture his surprise proposal, Erik and his fiance will always be able to look back and cherish the precious memory of their engagement.
Vacation photographers can help make sure that surprise proposals are still captured even when a couple is traveling abroad. A vacation photographer can also help suggest the best location for the engagement to take place, and thus, makes for it all to be a very enjoyable and memorable experience.
