Congrats!! I knew a proposal was coming so I had a few preparations:

– Went to the salon to get my hair touched up

– Got my nails done

– Started using fake tan

– Did my makeup every day 

– Got eyelash extensions

My fiancé got a photographer for the proposal and it was amazing! The only thing I regret is not having more pictures, in all the cute poses like showing the ring, etc. I was just so excited and emotional and it went by so fast!

We are planning for our engagement/proposal photos to be taken the day after the proposal itself. I don’t want the stress of a shoot/timings to take away from the day itself. We are planning to go for a private dinner the evening of. 

Come the next day, I won’t do much differently as I’m not a fan of posed photos so will be skipping makeup/fake tan/hair done etc. but that’s just me.

If I knew I was getting proposed to I’d definitely make sure to have my hair and makeup nicely done – a tan isn’t something I really care about so that wouldn’t bother me. I’d also make sure I was in an outfit I liked. 

As a photographer who photograph’s a lot of proposals I’d say it’s about 75/25 as to who is “done up” and who isn’t. A lot of my clients will pop the question before or after a nice dinner out, so by default they’re dressed nicely. Sometimes I have couples just taking a casual walk on the beach and in those cases they aren’t really dressed up. I always spend a few minutes after the proposal taking some engagement-style photos of the couple, so I do try to suggest (to the person doing the proposing) that if they think their partner would want to look “put together” consider doing it during a time they’d be dressed nicely – like before or after a nice dinner. 

I do actually have a family session coming up where a proposal will be happening during it! I love when that happens!
