Vanessa & David – Marriage Proposal Story
They have been together for five years and as they were travelling together around Catalonia it seemed like it was the time for a perfect surprise marriage proposal!
David had a romantic plan, a beautiful ring and an amazing spot in the mountains of Montserrat,.. the only thing left was to find a photographer who could capture this special moment and that’s when he contacted me.
We made a plan together and on Sunday morning I headed towards Montserrat, with my photo gear, a bottle of champagne and two glasses in my backpack.
The rest of the story I will leave to be told by Vanessa: “We planned a day trip to Montserrat. After hopping off the 1 hour train ride, we needed to make a left to head higher up into the mountains. But no, he insisted on making a right because he wanted to see this other view. I didn’t understand why he was so fixated on this specific spot that was in the opposite direction of where we were supposed to go since the main attraction is the other way. When we got there, there was already a couple there that looked like they were having an intense conversation and I didn’t want to interrupt them. He said he’ll wait and stalled time. I was so confused on why he really wanted a picture there because he normally doesn’t care about having the most perfect picture. He saw I was getting impatient so he went up to them and asked them to help us take a picture. As I was getting into place for the picture, I see him ask the girl to “take a video.” I was like “.. Wait what? You mean a picture? Take a picture.” He whispered back to the girl to take a video (but I didn’t hear that part). I extended my arm out for him to get into the picture but he just drops to the floor… I was SO shocked I don’t even think I said yes but of course, a million times Y E S.”
Capturing all that from top of this Montserrat terrace, I must say, I admired David’s quick improvisation and solution to “clear the view”, to get his girlfriend to the perfect spot and, on top of that, to ask this other couple to make a video for them. Well done David!
It was just as perfect and beautiful as he planned.
