How We Met
Benjamin came in Paris with his girlfriend all the way from sunny California with just one idea, how he will ask her to marry him. He contacted us few days before and asked if we can shoot his proposal secretly.
How They Asked
Benjamin told us to be very discrete and to make everything possible to keep this as a secret. He wanted the view on the Eiffel Tower, with not many people, for the sunset. Directions of the place were sent few days before, we told him where exactly they should stand and in what position so that we can see both of them while in the background is the Eiffel Tower. Benjamin told Mia that they are going for a walk and after for a dinner. Mia was enjoying Paris and asking Benjamin for picture on the way to the spot and he couldn’t tell her that she will be photographed in few minutes for her proposal. We both photographers were pretending like we are some tourists just strolling around.
While they were approaching, Benjamin was pretending to take pictures of Mia while he was actually writing to us «ok we are on our way, we are on the bridge..» etc., because we never saw them before. Finally when they got on the river bank Benjamin hugged Mia and then he proposed her. We started taking photos and got closer to the couple, Mia was all surprised by our presence. We continued to take few more photos and then the young couple decided to enjoy this beautiful October sunset in Paris.
