I totally don’t mean this to be rude/snarky, but with the huge trend of photographing proposals, how are women surprised by photo shoot proposals anymore? Or maybe they aren’t?
I’ve seen probably 10 in the past two weeks on blogs/facebook so it got me thinking. If you’ve been dating for a while and maybe even talked about getting engaged, and then your boyfriend says “hey, let’s have a photo shoot with a professional photographer,” wouldn’t you know what’s going on?? I mean, I’ve never heard of an unmarried couple having a professional photo shoot together where they don’t get engaged during. Have you? Will this trend die soon because guys will realize that their girlfriends will expect a proposal?

@RunnerBride13: I think women would know in that situation, but if he takes her to a park and there is a random dude with a camera taking pictures of blue jays there, she might not “get it” then, so I think in that instance the trend won’t die out.

@RunnerBride13: I have seen unmarried couples get professional pictures taken without an engagement. Totally hear your point though.

I didn’t even know that was a thing.
I’ve heard of being out and about at the proposal location, asking a stranger to take a photo, and popping the question then. But actually scheduling a professional “engagement photoshoot”? Sounds completely ridiculous to me.

FI and I did have pics taken while we were dating, but there was no proposal (just a lack of photos of us together). I would not have liked a photography session proposal

My friends just recently got engaged this way, but they have a young son, so she thought they were going for family portraits.
I do see your point though. I think I would have suspected something for sure!

@TheMrsTulip: yeah if you have kids I guess it’s more understandable.
@SparkleBee11: @Laurenplusalex: oh! I’ve never heard of that so I would have been suspicious!

@RunnerBride13: well I set it up, so no suspicion here, lol.

My FI and I got pictures taken before we were engaged. No proposal happened that day.
