FH proposed to me when I was at my job. My students and some of my coworkers were in on it so I have TONS of pictures and video. Some of my students even streamed the proposal on Facebook Live and sent it to their SnapChat stories. I cherish every picture and every video.

No because I proposed to HIM!  LOL.  But even if it had been the other way around, I don’t feel the need for photos.  I’m one of those girls that’s very uncomfortable with that sort of thing anyways…the guy on his knee, I mean. But we have lots of photos documenting our engagement time leading up to our wedding, which I love!

He didn’t get down on one knee. No pictures. 100% perfect. We didn’t even tell anyone we were engaged for another 2 days because we were in the mountains with no cell service. I absolutely loved my proposal and so many things about it would have had to change for us to have someone else there to take pictures and I’ve never cared about not having pictures. Not every second of our lives needs to be documented.

We’re both pretty private people and have no need to post major life events on social media or elsewhere. He never did get down on one knee, we joke about it sometimes. No pictures, nothing formal, not a surprise. Still engaged!! We’re both very happy to be sharing our lives and families together.

I have pictures and it wasn’t staged. We were on holiday and it was our 5 year dating anniversary so we’re dressed up to go to dinner. My fiancé suggested we get some pictures on the beach with the sunset and gave his phone to one of the sunlounger people to take pictures. We took a couple of pictures and then as I turned to go back to the hotel my fiancé said just one more and so I turned round and he’s on one knee! Sunlounger man did an epic job with the phone camera so the pictures I have are the real deal!

We do have pictures, but they’re slightly blurry phone pics, lol.  I love that we have them, but I would be just as happy if we didn’t.  I don’t think it’s a big deal.

We have no pictures of the proposal and it’s fine. It’s in my memory. I’m happy it was just the two of us (and our dog!) Most people don’t care to see these pictures anyway so it’s just for you…

We have a video.   Everyone in the room knew but me.  My FH has a group he plays D&D with on the weekends.   He did a story for that night where he proposed to my character.

No pictures of the actual proposal, but we took one afterwards and it’s so cute. We don’t need staged photography for every minor life moment lol.

My now husband and I got married on an island where people are only there for 3 hours at a time (no one lives there). I really wanted a video of the proposal. He set up my camera on a big rock and set it record, and told me that it was set up on a timer to take our picture. The video was about 4 minutes long, where I can kinda hear what he’s saying (it was far away) and I got stills of him getting down on one knee.

We were on a hike with friends and a friend took the pic of him proposing. The friend didn’t know about it ahead of time, he just asked her to take a pic of the two of us and then he got down on one knee. I love the pic and I’m glad I have it, but if I didn’t have it and it was just the two of us there, that would’ve been fine too.

Personally, I would prefer privacy to having a picture. But both my husband and I don’t really like having our pictures taken and always think we look terrible, so it was no question for us!

No, it was just me and him, and quite frankly I would have hated having people there snapping away. Completely understand your bf’s feeling of stress, it’s already a huge deal but to have a camera on you when you do it will make it a 100 x more stressful.

Just enjoy the moment and snap cute photos after.
