How to make the perfect surprise proposal in the Dolomites

There are too many beautiful places on the Dolomites to choose to propose to the love of your life. We’ve been shooting in this area so often that we basically became local elopement and wedding photographer. This is why we also know a lot of alternative epic spots so that you can have the most romantic yet perfect surprise proposal photoshoot in this magical place. As it happened with our lovely couple, Nicole and Alberto.

Engagement in the Dolomites

This very special session with N+A started at home, in a very lovely and cosy flat, where these two had a warm bath to get ready for such an epic day. Both Alberto and Nicole have a special connection with the Italian Alps, as she is originally from here. She was expecting to experience a weekend of relaxation and fun, as Alberto originally said to Nicole that it was going to be a weekend with “an engagement shoot in the Dolomites” with the two fo us! Certainly lovely way to remember a romantic weekend in the mountains… But that wasn’t all! And it was definitely quite hard for Nicole to guess what would have happened later the day. The first part of it was already so incredible, wandering in the silence of nature, surrounded by the most beautiful mountains still painted by some brush strokes of snow on the highest peaks. These were in fact just a few instants before one of the most emotional surprise marriage proposals would have take place!

The most precious ring and the secret love letter

Alberto wanted to propose to Nicole in the most special possible ways, so it thought to give her the most precious ring of all: the one that once belonged to his grandmother. And Nicole knew how much Alberto was attached to her. So this added the extra value and meaning to the whole story. On top of that, early in the morning (while Nicole was getting ready for the day) he wrote down a secret love letter to his beloved one. Well, it might sound like something out of a fairy tale, but it’s the real-life surprise proposal of Alberto + Nicole. And we were lucky enough to be able to capture such emotions and love for each other. Still missing that day and all the feelings it held!

A cinematic proposal in the Dolomites

As the day was about to end, we still had enough energies to chase the sun until it set. Right there, behind the high peaks at the horizon. And we were immersed, all of a sudden, in a beautiful blue hour. It made the atmosphere so cinematic, an absolute dream as a backdrop for a proposal! We really really had the best time together. A day including lots of love, wild laughs and fun exploring. Not to mention the breathtaking sky we found, we never saw so many stars spread all above us. Oh man, that day has definitely been a total blast!
