WWW: Secret Photographers

This post couldn’t be more perfect for What Women Want Wednesday. So guys, are you planning on proposing soon..? (or at some point in your life?!) Well, in case you didn’t already know. Women want a secret photographer during their proposal. It only happens once, and we love pictures, so we need you to plan someone to take pictures while it’s all happening! This doesn’t mean you have to hire a photographer and spend $500 on your proposal photographs before even getting into your engagement ones. Use family members, your girlfriends best friends who you know will be bridesmaids (therefor this can count as bridesmaid duty #1), a random stranger, employees, waiters, anyone really, just make sure they hide and don’t make anything obvious. I can’t think of one person that wouldn’t agree to taking pictures for you for this very special occasion like this. Luckily we live in a world where Pinterest is a great resource and pins have been great hints for guys who would never think of pictures. For those of you have been living under a rock, Pinterest is every girls best friend. If she’s a pinner, I’m sure she has a board titled “Wishlist” she probably created for YOU to read. Go search for her Pinterest page if you haven’t already been stalking. Trey said he saw me pin something that said “photographer during the proposal is a MUST” which I don’t remember at all, but I’m so glad he did! Because I absolutely loved that he hired one to be there.

So I wanted to share a few of the shots that we got back from the photographer of our proposal. It feels like it took so long to receive them since we had to get them shipped to Texas, but it was so worth the wait! We love the way they turned out.

I loved everything about this day and can’t wait to marry this guy. Creative Images from Louisiana did such a good job photoshopping my face/makeup because I looked like a mess in real life- thanks to the crying. Thanks again!
