From finding the perfect engagement ring to actually popping the question, proposing to the one you love can be tough. At DeScenza Diamonds, we believe it doesn't have to be! We are sharing everything we have learned in 103 years of helping Massachusetts say "I do" in our #broblog series to help you put a ring on it without ever breaking a sweat. 

If you’ve taken the time and care to plan a special proposal for your soon to be fiancée, you’re probably thinking she will remember this moment for the rest of your lives. But with the nerves and adrenaline that are likely to be pumping the moment you ask her to marry you, it may be hard for her to clearly reflect on this moment once time goes by. This, along with having photos ready for social media sharing and wedding planning, are top reasons some men hire engagement photographers and videographers to capture the exact moment that you get down on one knee.


Hiring a photographer to be on the spot has additional benefits that you may not initially realize. The photos and videos from your special day can help you relax as you pop the question, as well as make great gifts for years to come. Here are some of the reasons you may want to look into having your proposal captured by a professional.


You Can Fully Enjoy the Moment More

The moment you propose may be a nerve-wracking one, but it should also be one that you enjoy. If you are worried about documenting the moment yourself with your cell phone camera, you may lose some of the joy of the experience of being there. Hiring someone to take photos or video for you allows you to relax and fully be in the moment. It also ensures that the photos you end up getting are well-taken and give a clear image of the special moment.


Helps Family to Feel Included

If you’re proposing while on vacation or at a special venue, family and friends may not be able to participate in the actual moment. Having a video they can watch later is a great way to allow parents and close friends to get a glimpse of exactly what your proposal was like, even if they can’t be there in person. This is also a good idea if your future bride lives across the country from parents or other important family members. They may miss other important parts of the wedding planning process, but at least they can feel included in this important part of the journey. 


Helps Prepare You for the Future

Getting photos or video of the moment you proposed can help you be prepared for upcoming gift giving occasions after you’re married, such as Christmas or your first anniversary. A photo of the moment you proposed makes a great conversation piece in your first home together. Best of all, your future wife can include these photos in the wedding planning process and future family albums.


Whether you decide to hire a proposal photographer or not, the engagement ring you propose with is one tangible item from your proposal that you both will cherish for years to come.
