12 Proposals Caught on Camera That’ll Melt Your Heart

This is a post from our archives for all the newly engaged couples out there! It was around this time nine years ago when Andrew popped the question. Honestly it feels like yesterday! Enjoy these sweet proposals caught on camera!

Emma here and I think last weekend was the B I G G E S T weekend ever for engagements. At least, that’s how it seemed on my own personal Facebook. One of me + Andrew’s best friends, Kat, got engaged to our other best friend, Jeff, so that’s pretty much going to be the wedding of the century. (Congrats, you guys!) Another friend, Katrina, got engaged during the week; a friend Joe proposed to his girlfriend, Katelyn, whom I’ve known since the 2nd grade. And then a best friend, Natalie, got engaged to her boyfriend on Saturday. IT IS CRAZY! Not to mention, three of my other really close friends all popped the question this year alone. So, bring it on, 2015: it’s going to be the most amazing wedding-filled year in the history of ever.

And now with all of the adorable “we’re engaged” photos swirling around on Facebook and Instagram (like this adorable one via Bethany Marie Co.engaged instagram via 12 Proposals Caught on Camera That'll Melt Your Heart

… I can’t stop thinking about proposals and popping the question and how amazing it is when you get proposals caught on camera. You might have seen surprise proposals before, where the groom-to-be asks a friend or photographer to hide in the woods, behind the cider mill barn, or a stone’s throw away — basically make themselves hidden — so he can ask his girlfriend to be his forever and capture that incredible, emotion-packed moment on film. And when he gets down on one knee + she puts her hands over her mouth in surprise + those tears start falling + she says yes, the camera is going click click click to capture it all. Forever.

Lakeside & completely caught off guard!

Emma | Emmaline Bride October 23, 2014 - 10:35 am

Ahh! So cute!! I especially like how you’re looking at the ring, hands to face in surprise; he brought his camera (on the bench) to throw you off; and the ring box outline is totally visible. Thanks so much for sharing it. Congrats!

Thank you, Emma!
I was 100% completely surprised. We we’re saying our goodbyes to our family and friends since we were moving from Ohio to Texas the next morning. He suggested one last drive by the lake, since we’d be so far away. Even after 7 years together he managed to pull it off and make it a complete surprise – going the extra step and photographer to hide and capture the moment so I would have pictures of the actual proposal rather than a reenacted one!
