The Anatomy of a Picture-Perfect Eiffel Tower Marriage Proposal
We’re asked all the time for actionable tips on how to get the best photos of the actual proposal moment, which we break down into 5 distinct phases:
- get your sweetheart’s attention;
- drop to your knee to ask her to marry you;
- remain patient as she approaches to accept the ring;
- slip the bling on her finger;
- celebrate with your first kisses, lifts, hugs, and tears as fiancés.
1. Get your sweetheart's attention
Let’s assume you smartly texted your Paris proposal photographer and vendor team that you left your hotel and are about to arrive at the proposal spot.
Unless you privatized a setting—where you have complete control over the environment—it’s essential that you don’t show up early, but also not much later than planned.
Briefly make eye contact with your photographer, and check your surroundings for distracting people and objects.
Then position yourself parallel to your desired backdrop and your secret surprise proposal photographer.
Now is the time to get your partner’s undivided attention and deliver your marriage proposal speech, which beautifully brings your relationship full circle.
2. Drop to your knee
At this point, she’ll be too nervous to register anything more than ‘Will you marry me’ which you ask after dropping to your knee to present the ring box.
While the perfect form has no impact on the actual experience, it does significantly affect your photos.
So practice which knee to kneel on and how to fluidly remove the ring box from your jacket and present it … all while maintaining effortless eye contact with your sweetheart.
3. Put the ring on the finger
It is perfectly acceptable to put the ring on the finger while you’re still kneeling or after standing up.
That said, click the hotspots in the photo below to appreciate the nuances that collectively add up to a better experience with the most dazzling Paris proposal pictures.
4. Enjoy every moment
The greatest mistake we see is that folks turn to their secret Paris proposal photographer immediately after she accepts the ring.
It’s unfortunate and a wasted opportunity—both in terms of savoring a once-in-a-lifetime moment and getting ridiculously mind-blowing photos.
Instead, enjoy your first moments as fiancés naturally and at your own pace. Dance, dip, hug, lift, and cry as you celebrate this extraordinary milestone in your relationship.
