Happy Monday everyone!  This weekend I was looking through old emails and I realized that there were so many client pictures that I never  posted because we were so busy.  So I decided to create my blog today using pictures from clients proposals that we never published online.   So without further ado, let’s look at how to propose and check out the work of some great photographers we have hired to capture our proposals.

Find the Perfect Proposal Location

When you are searching for the perfect proposal location, first think if there is a place that you can propose that would meaningful.  If that isn’t possible, because perhaps you are proposing on a trip to a city you have never been to, make sure the proposal location is beautiful.  This is especially important if you will be photographing your proposal, which you always should.

Have A Great Proposal Idea

When you are planning your marriage proposal, one of the most important parts of the proposal is how you will do it.  You need a really unique and creative proposal idea that can’t be found anywhere else on the Internet.  This is where hiring a Proposal Planner like The Heart Bandits will really be helpful.  We will help you give her a proposal story that makes her get teary eyed every time she tells it!

Speak From Your Heart

There is a lot of advice out there that tells you how to give the perfect proposal speech.  But you shouldn’t be giving any type of speech on the day you propose.  You should speak from your heart.  Tell her how you feel and why you cannot live without her.
