Couples spend a lot of time, effort and money to make sure their wedding day will be captured the best way possible – after all it’s one of the most important days in their lives. But what about another major life event, like the proposal itself? Most times, unless it’s meant to be a viral proposal, the proposer is not thinking of documenting it and the moment will never be shared or shown to family and friends.

He did it for himself, for his future wife, for the family and for their friends. This is how he did it.
