Erik and Katie are a couple from Chicago, USA. They have recently visited Barcelona and Erik had a surprise for her. He had secretly planned a Paparazzi Style Photo Session to document such an important event.
On their last day in the city he scheduled a visit to the beautiful Gaudi’s Park Güell.
What Katie didn’t know is that there was somebody taking photos of them. As they were visiting the Park, Erik was looking for the perfect spot.
Once Erik located an empty spot on the big and colorful bench he offered Katie sit for a while. He started taking some selfies so, Katie wasn’t aware of me and my friend (and good photographer) were capturing them on our cameras.
Suddenly, one knee to the ground and he was ready to pop up the question.
WILL YOU MARRY ME?
And she let him put the ring on her finger. Obviously, she said YES!!!
For some minutes, as photographers, we enjoyed so much taking photos of a collection of emotions clearly visibles on Katie’s face: surprise, happiness, love…
Did I say love? 😉 Right after, he told her about the photographers and we got introduced to her.
Once we were not Paparazzis anymore, I was able to ask her for a close up of the beautiful ring.
Then, we went for some portraits around the Park. Beautiful memories for them to show to their loved ones.
A happy and nice day to remember.
Luckily, we got a bright and sunny day. Perfect for the occasion.
Erik told me it was his first time in Europe. I’m sure he will never forget it. And not only because the awesomeness of Gaudi’s architecture.
Do you see a couple photographers somewhere?
A nice and ENGAGED couple.
Some old school black and white photo (always reminds me developing with chemicals) of a gorgeous girl and a handsome man.
Park Güell’s main entrance. Yes, they got engaged up there at the balcony. Here we said good bye wishing Erik and Katie all the best.
Erik and Katie – Barcelona Engagement is a photo session I did as a photographer member of Localgrapher.
If you liked it and think that to hire a personal photographer while you are around Barcelona is a good idea, you can book me here:
Finally, I would like to Thank: Localgrapher, for its labor searching local photographers for travelers, Ernest Jiménez, an excellent photographer, for his collaboration and Erik & Katie, for being a nice couple, for choosing Barcelona and for their trust in us to capture such a beautiful moment in their lives.
