1. Choose a special place

Special moments usually happen in special places. Try to choose a location that has a particular meaning for both of you: your first country together or a dream destination.

If it’s difficult for you to choose, we recommend considering a vacation in Santorini as a great occasion for engagement. Sapphire domes, whitewashed houses, and sea waves are the best photo backgrounds.

2. Decide on the clothes

Clothes are not just a detail but a key element that creates a photoshoot concept. Moreover, it’s a very important moment in your couple's life, so make sure that everything is perfect.

If you’re planning to choose Santorini island, we recommend renting a famous flying dress for your beloved. First of all, she will be surprised by the idea of this decision. Second of all, if you’re planning a vacation to Greece islands, a dress rental would be a more convenient choice.

3. Discuss details with a photographer

One of the most important points of an amazing proposal photo session is to be on the same wavelength as the photographer. Here are some topics you should discuss in advance:

  • Surprise — in a secret photoshoot it’s important not to spoil the intrigue. Make sure that the photographer knows about your intentions and will support them.

  • Concept — no matter what country or location you choose, it’s important to have a general photo concept. For example, you can arrange a sunset photoshoot. Ideas for this type of photo session can be found in this article.

  • The right moment — agree on a place and moment when you will propose. You and the photographer need to be ready for it and do everything according to the plan.


You may arrange a photoshoot with SantoriniDress as an occasion to take pictures of the proposal.
