Algarve Proposal photo shoot – Sonduren & Shabnam

Some make their wedding proposal quite common, others choose to add a little suspense to the mix by keeping it a secret.

In the beginning of this month we had a photo shoot that was very special also for us. Sonduren decided to propose his beautiful girl-friend during their holidays in Algarve. We have been talking about his proposal during the last couple months other the phone. And finally the day had come. We were both very excited!

The Location

When we met up at their place, Shabnam thought we were doing a photo session for Tivoli hotel and she had no clue what was going to happen. This was part of the story we had invented together with Sonduren. We picked them up from the hotel and introduced us as hotel photographers taking some photos for a new website. As Sonduren is a youtuber and often makes deals with hotels, it sounded very believable to Shabnam. We went to a beautiful romantic beach, near Albandeira and started the photo shoot on top of the cliffs with ocean in the background. You could tell straight away they feel so comfortable with each other and that reflects also on the photos. Their movements were so natural, all we had to do was just take the photos.

The Proposal

After half an hour pretending taking just photos of them as a couple, we asked Shabnam face away and look at the ocean for some final shots whilst Sonduren got down on his knee and holding up  the engagement ring. When Shabnan turned over, Sonduren asked the magic words: Will you marry me? It did not take long to get the answer – Shabnam said yes and everyone was so happy! We took photos of that special moment from two different perspectives. You could tell by her expression that she was at the same time super surprised but also extremely happy. It was a moment to give them some time to enjoy the champagne and strawberries and we used the time to look for some more nice spots.

After some time we continued walking on the cliffs and took some more photos. The chemistry between them was even more intense and we are very happy with the final photos. We wish you love and happiness and we would be so happy to capture your wedding in Canada next year!
