It’s not all the time that proposals are actually photographed in the moment, so this one had me teary-eyed. Plus, it’s in Italy…who doesn’t love a romantic proposal in Italy!? Anna hired Luca Faz Photography to tag along on a walk with her and her boyfriend Maksim. What she didn’t know is that Maksim planned to propose that evening. He shared his plans with the photographer, and they agreed the perfect place was S. Giorgio Island in front of San Marco Square – a rather people-free place despite the gorgeous view. When Maksim said an agreed upon keyword, it was the photographers cue to go and “make a phone call,” while the camera, on a tripod, caught this special moment.
From the photographer:
I doubt I’ll get such a candid and spontaneous shot from so close again (usually I do engagement proposals from far away with a tele lens but in this case she was already aware of my presence since she hired me instead of him). During the day most of the images were taken in Dorsoduro area of Venice, while in the evening we were near Palazzo Ducale and on San Giorgio island (a good and quiet destination just one ferry stop away from the crowd).
