        1.  How does the surprise proposal process work?

        We make plans together to arrange a day, place, and time! I will share my recommendations with you, especially regarding the location and the best time of day, since I know the town in every aspect!  We exchange photos, maps, and detailed instructions about how to get to the selected spot. As the day gets closer, I’ll remind you of all the important details and share with you info on my outfit of the day and my live location once I am on the spot! Keeping everything a top secret! Sounds good? 

        2. What locations do you recommend for a surprise proposal shoot in Barcelona?

        There are many amazing places to propose in Barcelona! Let me know what kind of location you have in mind, and I can share my suggestions with you! 

        In case you can’t make up your mind, I may also share some sample photos of my previous proposals so you can get a better idea of how it’ll look in that location.

        3. How can you help me with planning the proposal?

        I will suggest great locations, the best times, and lighting conditions for photography. I can also arrange a videographer if you would like the moment captured in a video.

        We will bring Catalan champagne and glasses for you to celebrate after the proposal moment! 

        And if you would like me to pick up flowers for you, I could arrange that as well for an extra cost. 

        As well as recommend musicians if you would like to have live music for the occasion.  And if you want some extra decoration, balloons, or any kind of additional set-up, I can recommend some vendors who specialize in proposals.

        5. What time is the best to schedule the session? 

        The answer depends on the location you choose! I usually recommend either sunrise or sunset to get the best light for photography. And I suggest early morning to avoid the big crowds, especially for famous tourist spots, to keep the moment intimate and prevent any disturbance. We can first start with choosing the location and I’ll suggest the time that would be best for that specific spot. 

        6. Any recommendations on choosing an outfit?

        I can give you some recommendations and share a general guide for a couple shoot. Of course, what you wear is still completely up to you! I do understand that a proposal is a special time in your life, so wearing something dressier would be nice for the photos BUT also make sure that it’s something you’d feel comfortable in. 

        7. What information do you need from me? 

        For the most part, I just need your preferred contact information to discuss your ideas and plans discreetly. I would also require both of your names, your photos (you and your partner), and your WhatsApp number to share last-minute updates.

        8. How would you recognize me and vice versa on the day of the proposal? 

        We will exchange our photos to know exactly who to look for on the day. 

        And on the day itself, we can send each other a photo of our actual look and outfit, this will make it easier to spot each other once we arrive at the agreed spot. 

        9. Any tips for the proposal moment? 

        First things first, don’t rush! It’s my job to be on standby, so there’s no rush in kneeling down or starting your speech. Before you propose, I would also recommend removing sunglasses or cellphones in hand. Also, try your best to get in a good position; parallel to the background and completely side view so that I can capture both of your facial expressions.

        10. How do you ensure discretion during the shoot?

        I’ve successfully captured many surprise proposals and mastered the art of pretending. 😉 I usually just wear something casual, blend in with other people, and pretend to be a tourist taking photos around. 

        As for my camera, I usually switch the settings to the silent shooter, if possible, so you don’t hear the clicks. 

        However, trust me, once someone is being proposed to, they never wonder or look around. They are in a “here-and-now” bubble in the rush of emotions, completely ignoring the surroundings! 

        11. What happens right after I propose?

        I usually approach you as soon as you give me a sign to come closer after the proposal. I introduce myself and congratulate you, offering you a bottle of champagne to celebrate. And whenever you feel ready, we can start taking engagement photos in the surrounding locations. I will guide you through the process, and once you feel you have enough variety, I will leave. After that, you proceed with the final payment, and I’ll share with you the online gallery photos via email within the agreed timeframe.

        12. Do you also offer video services? 

        I offer a photo & video package, which includes a videographer to capture the proposal. In this package, there will be a 30-minute photo and video session, which will result into a 30-second reel that you’ll receive within a week after the session. 

        I will coordinate all the details of our plans with the videographer so you can only talk to me to make it easier for you. 

        13. What is the payment process, and do you require a deposit to secure the booking?

        Yes, I require a downpayment to secure the date for you. I will email you the payment details. The pending balance must be paid after the proposal before the final delivery of the photos. 

        14. How long does it take to receive the photos after the proposal?

        For my standard proposal packages, photos are available within 7 days after the proposal.

        However, I have an “Extra Fast Ninja Photographer” package with a fast delivery option. With this package, you’ll receive the edited photos within 24 hours after the proposal.

         

        15. Can you accommodate special requests for the shoot?

        Of course, I always try to help you arrange the best plan according to your situation and special needs. So, whether it is a pushchair, wheelchair, etc., we can always find a suitable plan for you!

        16. Can you help coordinate with other vendors, such as a musician, a sailing company or a decorator, for the proposal?

        Of course, I can coordinate with them so we are all on the same page regarding the time and location. However, it is up to you to book them and discuss their packages and conditions for your surprise proposal.

        17. What is your cancellation or rescheduling policy?

        In the case that you need to reschedule, I can accommodate one schedule change as long as I’m free on the new date. However, for cancellations, the deposit is non-refundable. 

        18. What if it rains or weather conditions are unfavorable on the day of the proposal?

        One piece of advice is to not check the weather forecast until a couple of days before. It’s always changing, and it’s not worth worrying about the weather a month or weeks in advance. 

        However, I try to be as flexible as possible in the unlikely situation of bad weather. I do allow a one-time rescheduling of the proposal, of course, if I have availability in my calendar.  

        19. And what if I wanted to propose outside of Barcelona? 

        I can definitely accommodate this, but I will require a fee per extra time and transportation cost. 

        I will share the quotes with you depending on your chosen location. Feel free to inquire!

        20. Where could I read testimonials from your clients?
