Proposal Photography Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do we coordinate for the proposal photography?
A: The easiest and most covert way to communicate is via text. We’ll have everything planned out as clearly as possible beforehand and should just need to send one- or two-word texts to let each other know what’s going on. Heck, if you want to come up with codewords, I’m more than willing to play spy.
Q: Will you be hidden?
A: It all depends on where the proposal will be taking place, but it’s generally normal to see photographers around Austin, especially in popular proposal locations. I’ll typically be posing as a nature photographer or something along those lines and will only swing into action when you give me the sign.
Q: Will you be there early?
A: I show up 15 minutes prior to the agreed-upon time to make sure I’m ready.
Q: What happens if we’re running late?
A: The most important thing is to let me know. Just send a text so I have a heads-up. If you don’t get in touch with me, I’ll wait 30 minutes after the agreed-upon time. If I still haven’t heard from you, I’ll consider you a no-show.
If you do let me know but you’re more than 30 minutes late, I charge a $50 inconvenience fee. If you’re more than an hour late, you’ll be considered a no-show.
Q: What happens if the weather is bad?
A: Since everyone’s definition of bad weather is different, I don’t offer refunds for weather. I do allow rescheduling if you decide the weather isn’t cooperating. Please let me know as soon as possible.
Q: How much does proposal photography cost?
Q: What happens after the proposal?
A: After the shock has worn off, I like to do a mini-session with the two of you. We’ll take about 25 minutes to get photos of you with that just-engaged glow.
Q: How many photos will I get from my proposal session?
A: I aim for 40 edited photos from each session.
