    I would want neither, because I would a) never watch it, and b) want to be alone during my proposal, but I think if I were a normal girl I’d pick video, so that’s how I’m voting 🙂

    my FI hired a photographer. it’s really special to have pics and not always easy to frame a video 🙂

    don’t hire a pro, just ask a friend or family member to hide & film it.  my proposal was filmed during a birthday party for FH, he told my BFF and she got his cue and hit record.

    I hired a photographer for mine and it was so worth it… I think my fiance would have been weirded out with a videographer.

    indecisivebee: ive never been a video type of person. so i voted photos. i didnt even really care to have my wedding recorded but a friend did it. and im glad she did since it included people i forgot to get photos with.

    I normally would have said photos, however I honestly wish I could remember what FI said when he proposed. I can’t remember anything other than “Will you marry me.” so I think I would pick video.

    I would want photos. I would likely never watch the video and photos would be much easier to pull out and share with friends.

    i’d say photos because a video could be embarrassing or awkward to watch.

    indecisivebee:  My DH had friends present to take photos and a video – though we didn’t really know about the video. It’s nice having both, though I look at the photo’s more. I was so surprised by the proposal that I said a few naughty words, and of course now we have that captured forever on video. It’s kinda in character for me, so we laugh about it, but something to consider when thinking about a video.
