This is one of my favourite surprise proposals in Paris. I do shoot a lot of proposal as Paris is definitely the most romantic city of the world. But Andrew had a pretty special request. Everyone knows that girls dream about a prince arriving on a horse. But Andrew is a modern prince with a sense of humour. So he asked me if I could find a stick horse toy in Paris. It was too late to order it online, so I ended up running all around the city, checking every toy store to find it. These stick horse toys were out of stock almost everywhere and sellers suggested me to buy Dragons, cows and other animals instead but that wouldn't make sense for the plan the Andrew had in mind. The only available horse I found turned out to be super adorable.
On one of their evenings in Paris, the couple came to a Parisian cafe next to the Eiffel tower and Andrew left his future fiancée to "withdraw some money from an ATM". At the same time, I was waiting for him behind the corner with the horse and flowers.

We met again next morning at the Montmartre to shoot A&S engagement photoshoot in Paris. They also had their love story captured at night at the Louvre and the Eiffel tower.
