Photographing a proposal is HUGE to us and we take lots of credit in showing the world how important it is. We love when photographers capture the beautiful, love-filled, emotional reactions of a couple’s proposal. The more love the better, which is why it makes us so excited that one of our vendors has captured over sixty proposals! Talk about having a career filled with love!
In honor of Pennace Photography‘s proposal portfolio we have included sixty proposals that Laura Pennace has captured as well as some fun facts from the photographer herself.
“My first proposal was back in 2009 (Tyler and Kate). Kate was grappling with a recent diagnosis of MS. Tyler and Kate had been taking a sign language class together, so he actually “signed” the marriage proposal to her.”
“My second proposal was in 2010. Josh kept the fact the proposal was photographed a secret from Jenn until their wedding day, when he presented her with a framed photo of the moment. ”
Five of the couples used caricaturist (and HowTheyAsked vendor) Joe Vissichelli to create a custom piece for their proposal.
“Every proposal I’ve photographed has been a happy YES!”
“Steve’s proposal to Sandra was on April Fool’s Day in 2013 – he and Sandra were checking out the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center (they are a wonderfully goofy couple who love gaming) – and he had his nieces dress up as little Yoshis and present Sandra with a painted egg with a “Will You Be My Player Two?” on the inside, right in the store! They married on April Fool’s Day, 2014″
“Gabriel surprised Fida with a day trip to NYC (from Michigan!) for lunch. They flew in that morning, had lunch, and took a stroll in Central Park where he proposed. They flew out that same night back home.”
“I’ve worked with couples from France, Brazil, Costa Rica, Canada, Mexico, South Africa, Australia, the United Kingdom, Austria, Germany, and various places around the United States!”
“Jamie proposed to Angelina with a message hidden inside their picnic courtesy of Picnicgram.”
“Scott’s proposal to Lori (#48) was preceeded by a city-wide photo shoot during fashion week. Scott had reserved the “Extreme Wow” suite at the W Hotel and created a whole fashion week themed day for Lori – so she thought I was a “paparazzi style” photographer, hired to follow them around and take photos of them as if they were celebrities/models. His proposal at dinner was the culmination of an already awesome day.”
“Adrian proposed in Central Park with an empty box – because right after the proposal we all went to Tiffany so she could choose her ring!”
Keep up the great work Laura!
