More Photographers Being Hired to Capture Marriage Proposals

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-10_a81df78f6b.jpgLaura Pennace (NEW YORK) -- More and more grooms are popping bulbs while popping the question, say wedding photographers, who have seen a spike in requests for proposal shoots this year. "I shot my first proposal four years ago; it was one of those random things," NYC-based photographer Laura Pennace said.  "Then, since last summer there has been a huge uptick. It's so funny because I tell people that I'm basically being hired to be a total creeper."

Having chosen a destination ahead of time, the photographer usually stakes out the location, posing as a tourist or unassuming stranger to covertly snap pics leading up to the big moment. After the groom gets down on one knee and the couple shares a few private moments, the photographer then reveals him or herself. Most charge between $350 and $500 per hour.

"We've been seeing the proposal photography trend for a few years now but it's definitely increasing in popularity," TheKnot.com site director Anja Winikka said. "Beyond the ultra-romantic gesture of proposing, it doesn't get more emotional as looking at those photos and reliving the feelings of the moment all over again."

Winnika suggests using a photographer who understands what you're looking for and has experience staying hidden.
