Talk about creative! This guy and his gal in the states happen to both love photography. And the guy also happens to wanna marry his gal. So they take a drive out to a vineyard they love, and he asks her to take a picture of him. She of course obliges, only to find his marriage proposal attached to the lens of the camera. From the Huffington Post:
Pruyn popped the question to his girlfriend, Broadway actress Cara Massey, on Sunday by writing “Marry Me” on an iPhone screen protector and then sticking it to a camera, so Massey would see it when she looked through the camera to take a photo of him.
Can you imagine what a cool moment that would be? Wow. What a lucky gal too. Here is the blog where he writes about all the methods he tried before coming up with the winning solution to get his marriage proposal in the right spot
I scoured through my junk drawer and found a pack of iphone screen protectors. I wrote “Marry Me” on the transparent film then carefully cut out a square smaller than the prism in the camera. I peeled the backing off, placed the sticky side to the bottom of the prism inside the camera, I held it up to the light and was amazed.
Sounds like it was not only a happy moment, but one of amazement that will serve as an actual keepsake they can always have on their mantle. The innovative Pruyn writes:
I knew I wanted something intimate, original / unique and true to who we are. I had the idea to use a vintage camera and tripod as part of the proposal.
I’d say he accomplished that and a whole lot more! So glad he shared this with the world. We need nice stories like this to balance out so much of the horrific things we normally get pushed on us in the news these days.
Congratulations on one of the best marriage proposals I’ve seen in a long time!
