Proposal Tips

  1. Whether you choose a chilly mountain or a sandy beach, keep the typical weather of your location in mind. Check the forecast as far in advance as possible to avoid rain or clouds.
  2. For the best pictures, choose a location without a lot on the horizon. Beaches and mountaintops are the best choices; crowded cities and forests are the worst. A clear horizon makes for a perfect sunset view!
  3. Everything about this is romantic, so your clothing should match that feeling! Wear something dreamy, flowy, and monochrome to complement the colorful sunset.
  1. Time the proposal just as the sun drops below the horizon for the best lighting. (Hint: Check your weather app for the exact sunset time!) This is also when the sky is most colorful, which will be perfect for pictures.
  2. Consider having your photographer hide from a distance to help keep the surprise! As long as you know where they’re hiding, it’s a great way to make the proposal even more exciting.
  3. Sunsets are the ultimate picture of a storybook ending, so you probably won’t want a crowd of people around during the actual proposal. Take some time afterward to call your loved ones, or even arrange a dinner celebration so everyone feels included!
