Hello dear friend who is about to propose to your the person you love the most. I have already approached the subject of engagement proposal and have written a blog on HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT PROPOSAL PHOTOSHOOT ABROAD. Now that you know your logistics and timings I'd like to help you find a photographer for your engagement proposal photoshoot. Here are a few steps that will help you find them and make a decision when picking a best fit.
1. GOOGLE BY LOCATION
Choose the location of your proposal first. It can be a city or a little village. You can google your photographer according to that location. If you are looking to find a photographer specialising in wedding related photoshoots you should type in something like this 'Wedding Photographer Dublin'. These photographers will specialise in weddings and everything to do with couple photography. They are experts on posing and handling people by creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for best results.
2. TRAVEL AGENT
You can ask your travel agent for any recommendations. If you were booking a trip with a travel agency they most will likely help you out with navigating the area and finding the right fit for your needs.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN GETTING IN TOUCH WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
1. STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY
There are a few styles in photography that you can come across. But my main advice is to go something that pleases your eye aesthetically. My style of photography is categorised as natural, fresh and happy. I keep my colours bright and airy.
Getting in touch with a photographer you can judge their responses by how efficient they are. Please keep in mind time difference but. It shouldn't take them longer than 24 hours to reply to your messages unless they have a valid reason to delay for longer. This will determine the nature of your communication in the future and will put your mind at ease with regards to the level of reliability.
Take into account their willingness to help. You don't know the area and you don't know if it will look great in the photos. Explain to them exactly what your plan is. Ask for advice on location and anything else that can potentially bother you. Willingness to help will show a level of professionalism and trustworthiness.
Take into account everything. By the time you leave for your adventure your mind should be at ease. The people you deal with on this journey will be the only people you'll rely on if anything goes wrong so make sure you pick them wisely.
