A Same-sex Proposal in Santorini
Planning a same-sex marriage proposal in Santorini, far away from your home, can be a challenging journey. But there is a reason that every year couples travel from all over the world to get engaged in Santorini. From the cinematic Blue Domes to the private panoramic balconies and atmospheric views of the ocean, Santorini island is truly the most romantic destination in the world. In this proposal blog post, I can’t wait to introduce you a cute same sex couple that made it. She said yes and now the beautiful couple is getting ready to say I do soon!
Jamie and Melanie met almost two years ago, and it was love at first sight. They met at a coffee shop and ended up talking for almost three hours! They have been in love ever since. Jamie loves musical theatre and works with children. Melanie received her law degree and works as a consultant helping American Indian Tribes complete affordable housing projects on their reservations. They were both very excited to be able to see the beautiful island of Santorini and spend a few days exploring its wonderful views and culture.
But Jamie had no clue that Melanie was planning to pop the question during their stay in the island. And I had the pleasure to be part of this moment as their photographer. In the meanwhile, I would like to put off some weight from your shoulders by providing some suggestions from my experience and expertise in this kind of photoshoots.
Be unique and go beyond the ordinary
Find a quiet, isolated place
Santorini is an island with endless photogenic spots. Thus, there is no reason to stick with the few most popular landmarks. If you want your other significant to feel unique, you would be better off to plan something unique and pop the question away from the tourist crowds. An isolated, quiet beach is a very good option for people seeking privacy and silence. I was very happy to help Melanie not just organizing a proposal photographer, but to provide also samples and different options for her upcoming proposal. We ended up to an afternoon horse riding followed by an epic same sex sunset beach proposal. The team of Santorini Horse Riding arranged a table and chairs set up for the couple as well as a fantastic dinner with healthy local food, Vinsanto wine and delicious desserts, all next to the calm ocean.
