How It Is To Be In Iceland A Proposal Photographer?


A secret proposal in Iceland not so secret

To all the couples planning their secret proposal in Iceland – I’ve got you covered. 

Seriously, I’ve done it all: I pretended to be a stranger, a tourist taking photos of everything around me, I was a “guide” on a private tour, I was just a bit too chatty annoying lady walking around and trying to make some friends and just so it happened that I was taking a photo of you when you got engaged (oops!), I was hidden in the restaurant, behind the rocks, I was a photographer hired just for couples/friends sessions… You can imagine.

I brought the speaker with your song on it, I bought the flowers, picked up your ring, even convinced construction guys to go for a break. I’m a girl who you wanna have on your side when asking someone to marry you! Just look.

Secret Proposal In Iceland - how to plan it

Sure thing I will try to convince you to engage in Iceland, as a proposal photographer here it’s my job to do so, but I will be honest with you – I truly believe that there is magic here.

No matter if you will choose a romantic restaurant with it’s Nordic charm or a secluded place where nature will be the only witness I am sure that we can create an unforgettable experience for both of you. Romantic stuff I leave to you-weather you prepare the letter, would like me to order a musicians or flowers… you do you. I will make sure you remember about the basic things:

  1. Exchange the phone numbers with your photographer and send him all updates – a selfie photo, so he knows who to seek, delay info, etc
  2. Agree on specific location, precisely
  3. Make sure you and the photographer set up a secret code, which indicates that you and a photographer are ready, or that this is the spot which you love
  4. Build the atmosphere for your significant other from the very early morning, trust me-you dont want to get engaged when you are both in not the ideal moods
  5. Make some plans for afterwards – a dinner, night out, private tour, picnic… whatever it will be, make it special and use as an excuse why the other half should dress in a preferred manner before you gonna pop out the question
  6. Choosing the location remember for who you are doing this – if your girlfriend always pays attention to her hair appearance and avoids them wet, skip waterfalls, if your boyfriend is not a fan of hiking, resign from places where access isn’t the easiest, etc
  7. Choose plan B. An experienced photographer will for sure have ideas to support you with, just ask ahead of time.

Surprises never works fully according to the plans, but they are absolutely perfect in it’s imperfections.

Deciding on secret proposal you have to think about every tiny detail in advance – it will help, sure thing, but the best advice I can share is to be in the moment, take it as it is, feel it, breath it, memorize all, enjoy. This is for the both of you and about the both of you. Don’t rush, show affection, take your time once you are looking in the eyes of the love of your life, give me space and chance to photograph connection and find an angle allowing me to capture all the perks.  Be.

You want your proposal to be DOPE and that is why you have me.  I will be up to the moon if I can help you create an intimate, adventurous proposal in Iceland, that will make you feel… Either you look for a spectacular locations, elegant high end touch to this raw experience, trusted vendors or a dope two person type of a naked butts party – here I go.
