Video Blog #3: Surprise Proposal Villefranche

Hey Everyone, I hope your summer is going well! I’m currently sitting in cafe in rainy Paris! LOL, oh well this horrible weather gives me the opportunity to catch up on some blogging. 


Summer has been a wild ride for me with a lot of really great moments. High up on my list of amazing things this summer is this photoshoot that I shot in Villefranche-sur-Mer. This town on the French Riviera in between Monaco and Nice is one of my favorite places to shoot. You can see one of my all time favorite shoots from Villefranche-sur-Mer here


This photoshoot was really different than any previous photoshoots that I have done because I was shooting in a private villa high up in the hills overlooking the bay of Villefranche and neighboring Cap Ferrat. 


This was also the first time that I captured a surprise proposal where the entire family was involved. Now when I say an entire family I mean moms, dads, and brothers. That sounds like quite a handful but actually the process was really seamless and this family is obviously a tight knit crew that knows how to work together. 


So the lucky lovely couple was on a mediterranean cruise and they knew his family had rented a villa in the South of France and that they would be spending the day with them. She had no idea what was awaiting her in the villa however: beautiful flowers, a beautiful ring and the question of a lifetime. To top it all off her family flew in as a complete surprise and she was shocked! The photos show her genuine surprise and emotion in the moment. 


Obviously she said yes. Such a special moment in a beautiful atmosphere. 


I managed to shoot some video footage after the shoot to give you all a better idea of the ambiance. In the blog I’m also giving a few pointers on what I do personally to stay positive. I definitely don’t think I’m a naturally positive person, it’s really a lot of work for me, so I hope that you enjoy and if you have any personal tips to staying positive, please share! =)
