With the holiday season upon us, there are going to be a ton of very nervous boyfriends and girlfriends getting ready to propose to their partner. I want to take a little bit of a load off your shoulders, and help you plan the perfect surprise proposal and share my top tips!
Remember that episode from Friends where Phoebe totally ruined Mike’s proposal a bunch of times? And then she tried to propose to him using the jumbotron and it was just a holy hot mess?
Don’t get me wrong, spontaneous proposals are incredible and memorable. But making a plan, having reservations and going the extra mile is going to be very meaningful to your partner.
This is old school and traditional, but I love the idea of filling your partner’s parents in on your plans before you do it. Not saying you have to ask permission per se, but, letting them know it’s happening gives them an opportunity to join in on the celebration.
I’ve been able to be part of so many surprise proposals over the years, and I’ll tell you what: it never gets old. Every single time, the newly engaged couple has been so excited to have that special moment forever captured and sharing about it so much fun.
Shameless plug: I LOVE BEING PART OF SURPRISE PROPOSALS. 🤣
Thinking of proposing? Hit me up! I’d love to be there!

Joy-filled photography for families, boudoir, high school seniors and weddings. I've got you, boo!
I'm Ashley! Family and wedding photographer in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, but I travel all over the country to hang out with the most incredible people. I am obsessed with puppies, extra hot coffee, incredible light and firmly believe that love conquers all.
