When he first contacted me, Dennis’s plan was to propose in a restaurant near the Champs Elysées. His plan B was to propose after dinner… He was not sure! Although that rooftop restaurant had a nice view of the Eiffel Tower, the risk of having a lot of people around and not enough space was a big issue.
This is why I suggested proposing before dinner. I convinced him to change his restaurant reservation, so we could use a bigger rooftop as the perfect place for the proposal.
So that was acknowledged, and we organized everything on Skype. Dennis had never visited Paris before, but after our video meeting, he felt like he perfectly knew where to go.
We met at the Eiffel Tower and followed the couple for 15 minutes. As we were shooting from long distances, we remained totally hidden. We arrived on the spot 5 minutes in advance and pretended we were tourists 😉
Additionally, Dennis had asked to record a simple video of the proposal. My son Pierre was the perfect guy for that mission. Pierre is studying movie-making but he’s been in film-making since 2015. We’ll share the video soon on our Web site when it’s edited.
