Being a secret photographer for this Horsham engagement proposal was a success! Having photographed hundreds of proposals, I’ve learned the art of stealth. But more importantly, how to make a proposal special for a couple.
Sandeep reached out to me after seeing this Nymans Gardens engagement proposal. He loved the photographs and knew Sam would love having photographs like those.
As a secret photographer for proposals, I know all the best spots to propose. But planning the proposal was a bit of a challenge as Sandeep lives in Dubai – so we had to plan with a huge time difference.
We talked about a few locations and explored which would be easiest for him to get to – and ultimately decided on Leonardslee Gardens.
The beautiful thing about Leonardslee Lake & Gardens is that the gardens stop entry at 2:30 PM. Most people clear out at that time as the cafes also shut. But you don’t have to leave! That means you can have the gardens pretty much to yourselves. Which is perfect for a proposal!
So with that in mind, Sandeep and Sam arrived shortly before closing time and enjoyed a quiet walk around the gardens.
Once the proposal was captured, Sandeep pointed me out to Sam and the tears of joy started to flow all over again. I always love how happy a reaction that brings and after a quick hi from me, I say “enjoy this moment just a little bit longer. When you’re ready, I’ll come over and take some fun photographs for you two. But for now be present in this lovely moment.”
Secret Photographer for Engagement Proposal in Horsham
After meeting in university, Sam moved to Dubai to be with Sandeep. Both share a love of music and cats – have several rescues they absolutely adore! These two are the kind of couple that are so perfectly in tune with each other – I especially loved that Sandeep unintentionally matched with Sam’s hair (and the icing on the cake was when I found some beautiful autumn leaves in the same rich burgundy)!
