Engagement Proposal Ideas in Paris, France

How We Met

I am a freelance travel photographer and during one of my trip to Vietnam, we’ve met through some mutual friends. She was very sweet and lovely and I was attracted to that from the beginning. Afterward, we took some trips together throughout Vietnam and did spend some time communicate via long distance. For some people, long distance relationship is hard but for us, it was worth the wait.

How He Asked

I am currently living in Germany and we were planning a trip to Paris. After jumping through many hoops and hardship in order for her to obtain a French tourist visa, she finally received the visa and we met up in Paris in December. I want to take a picture of us in front of the Eiffel tower (cliche right? lol) and was planning to propose there as well. We arrived there early in the morning while everyone was still asleep, and I setup the camera to take a shot of us using the timer. I had planned it perfectly and have just enough time when I pull out the ring and had the camera captured that moment perfectly (as seen below).

Being a photographer, I know the work that goes behind every single shots and I know I can be very picky. I didn’t want to hire anyone else to capture this special moment and it worked out great for us.
