Our first proposal in Paris took place on December the 30 of 2009. Patrick asked us if it was possible to take hidden pictures of her love, Heather and him during his proposal.
At the beginning the mission was to be on the spot Patrick chose which was the Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris at 11 p.m. we just had to take pictures of the proposal but we went earlier at the Georgian restaurant, Deda, where the two lovers had their dinner.
After the restaurant, they walked through empty Parisian streets towards the Cathedral, crossing bridges and stopping under floor lamps for a few romantic breaks…
Following a few yards holding hands and looking at the shop windows during Christmas time, Patrick and Heather finally arrived at the Cathedral where the proposal was suppose to happen.
Patrick got down on one knee on the floor of the Cathedral tending the ring to Heather, waiting for her answer, waiting for her “yes”.
Afterwards, some great pictures had been taken during the shooting. All the pictures in black & white you can see in the gallery below the article had been made after the proposal.
Deda device was : “A guest is a gift from God”, which is a Georgian popular proverb. Let us be the guest of the proposal to your love.
That first proposal was expected as the only one, but Patrick loved the result and after his very positive post on TripAdvisor, some other persons came to me asking for a shooting for their “proposal in Paris”.
