How To Plan a Boston Proposal


Getting engaged is a huge, thrilling moment in your life. Whether you are the one proposing or the one who is being surprised, you’ll want pictures to remember the emotion and to relive the excitement and magic of the day. As a Boston Photographer, I’ve had the honor of capturing several amazing couples’ surprise proposals. I thought it would be fun to share my tips and advice on How to plan a Boston proposal! 

Hiring a Photographer to Capture Your Boston Proposal

You know you want to propose, but aren’t sure how or where to even start. This is one of the many benefits of hiring a photographer to capture your proposal. They can help you plan the details. Most photographers know their area very well and can give you recommendations on locations! I, for instance, know all the local Boston spots that would be perfect for a proposal (more on this later!). I will always help plan the proposal and go over the timeline so that we get everything right for this epic moment. 

Aside from taking the pressure off of planning an entire surprise proposal yourself, hiring a photographer gives you the best benefit of all – pictures and memories of the moment!  A second shooter is present to assist and make sure we capture the proposal from every angle so you can relive every detail. I promise you’ll never know we are there! All my clients also receive a same day sneak peak of the proposal! 

Surprise Proposal Location

Now that you know the benefits of hiring a Boston Photographer to capture your surprise proposal, let’s talk locations! Boston is full of so many beautiful places that make for an amazing backdrop to your proposal! From Harbors, coastlines, parks, and cityscapes there is something for everyone! Your proposal should be a reflection of you and your significant other, whether that is something adventurous, laid-back, romantic, or unique, we can make it happen! Your style will influence the location, so always take that into consideration! 

Here are a few amazing spots around Boston to consider:

  • Boston Public Gardens And Boston Common
