Stylish couple from NYC Eiffel Tower surprise proposal at the river

This was one stylish couple from NYC, with an Eiffel Tower surprise proposal at the river, on a sunny, crisp fall day! Felix had contacted me about a surprise proposal in Paris for early October. He and the love of his life, Laura, would be traveling to Paris for their holidays. During the trip, he wanted to ask her to marry him. After discussing the best locations for a Paris surprise proposal, Felix told me he wanted a full-on view of the Eiffel Tower when he proposed. There are many great locations in Paris with stunning views of the Eiffel Tower. Most of my clients gravitate toward Trocadero, but sometimes Trocadero is very busy, and the best spot for a proposal is sometimes closed for special events, as was the case during the time Felix was in Paris.

So instead of Trocadero for his Paris surprise proposal, Felix selected the Eiffel Tower Riverside location, which has now become one of the most popular proposal spots in Paris for my clients who are looking for a generally calm, serene, and somewhat private (at least more private than other areas of Paris) proposal location. Did I mention the killer views of the Eiffel Tower? You’re so close you can almost touch it! Well, not really, but it’s an amazing view that your loved one will cherish forever.

I waited in my location along the river for Felix and Laura to arrive, and here they were. Laura looked Parisian chic in a stylish green dress that looked perfect for dancing, plus an elegant black hat. Felix wore a super sharp maroon suit and tie, and looked like a million bucks. As I already said once, this was one stylish couple! I was posing as a tourist taking photos along the Seine (pronounced SENNE) River, when Felix approached me. This is but one was we can set up your surprise proposal in Paris. You can either book a photo session and propose during it, but what I prefer is just the random, ask a stranger to snap a pic of us. This exact scenario happens all day long in Paris, even sometimes while I’m working with clients!

I snapped a couple of photos of Felix and Laura on the cell phone of Felix, gave it back, and then got in place for the BIG MOMENT. Laura had no idea what was about to happen next. I was pretty far away so could not hear Felix’s words (this is a pretty private spot), but he spoke to Laura and then before long he was on one knee. From the looks of things, she said yes, as there was lots of hugs, loves, tears and kisses.

I introduced myself to the newly engaged couple and asked if they’d love to do a mini engagement session, which is part of my Picture Me Paris Classic surprise proposal, the proposal plus a few engagement photos afterward. They were in great spirits and agreed to let me photograph them (yay!).

I learned that Felix and Laura had met three years’ ago at work. Felix actually works for Fed Ex, and had made a delivery to Laura’s office. Laura was covering another desk the day Felix first came in, and was there to take the delivery.

Sparks flew!

I thought this stuff only happened in movies, but it DOES happen in real life!

Laura agreed to give Felix her phone number, but she didn’t write her name on the paper! Felix not only got a date, but got her name too, and her name is Laura, a lovely young woman with a brand new fiancé in Paris!

As much as I loved Laura’s hat, it shielded her pretty face and their raw emotions from the camera, so we photographed them without the hat, but tossed it back on late into the session for good measure. It is so cute, after all!

From our location, we walked along the river and then onto the bridge of Bir Hakeim, which was hopping busy full of tourists and photo shoots, but we got some great photos in beautiful afternoon light, and I hope Felix and Laura will treasure their Paris surprise proposal forever.

It was a huge honor that Felix selected me for this very important assignment, and I wish them much love and happiness in their lives together!
