A sunrise surprise proposal at the Eiffel Tower | June 2018 |

It was Daniela’s sister who first noticed Andrei’s good looks, height and how nice he just is. How nice he just is?! I have experienced it first hand and right from the start, with his email. When I read Andrei’s email enquiry, the courteous warmth and friendliness instantly makes me want to work with him. I am so happy that he did choose me as his Paris photographer for his surprise proposal to Daniela! They were kind people and so much fun to photograph.

Andrei and Daniela attended the same college. That’s how they met, both studying engineering and he was the senior.

Taking up her younger’s sister advice of “why don’t you go out with him?”, Daniela cleverly concocted a plan to make that happen. She requested Andrei’s help for her upcoming math exam, a request which she still claims was a genuine academic plea for help (wink!).

Fast forward 6 years later, both now working adults, Daniela finds herself being swifted off her feet to Paris to celebrate her 26th birthday.

Given that she loves her photos taken, Andrei thought that a Paris photoshoot will be an excellent ‘birthday gift’. It would make the photoshoot the perfect mask for his intended surprise proposal. So this is one of the Paris surprise proposal done within a photo session, non paparazzi style, to a non expecting girlfriend. Enjoy the photo story of Andrei and Daniela’s Paris surprise proposal session!
