Photo booth proposal

Pete wanted to propose to his girlfriend Shannon, so he went to a Mexican restaurant and spelled out his his proposal in a photo booth. And it was harder than it looks: "He told me he only had the exact change for five strips," says Shannon, "because he didn't realize they were $3 each, so he was really nervous that he was going to mess up the order of the letters. Thus him making a 'Oh my god, I hope I got this right' face in the last photo." Pete then stuck the strips on their fridge, and Shannon discovered it while they were cooking pasta. How sweet is that?

P.S. 10 more genius proposals.

This is so cute! My favorite proposal is the one where he actually proposes in the photobooth and they capture her reaction right there in the photos - Love it = )

Such a sweet idea. I know for sure that I would have messed up the letters (maybe even with super detailed notes).

I love El Vez! I had my 21st birthday there and we definitely had some fun in that photobooth! What an awesome proposal.

Sunna said...

I love this idea! How cute! I really like photobooths - but the only ones we have here in Iceland make you look like a depressed glow-in-the-dark alien. Wouldn't really work as well with that look...

Eliza Norris said...

Sigh... so romantic.

Jesse said...

My husband proposed to me in a photobooth. We were taking pictures, when all of a sudden he got down on one knee in the photobooth, and we got our proposal on film! It was such a fun and romantic way of proposing, especially since I am a photographer.

My husband proposed to me IN a photo booth, as the photos were being snapped. It was totally perfect: we were able to celebrate in our own tiny little world, then open the curtain and have a strip of photos to remember the moment forever.

holy smokes! my lovely fiance just proposed this august in a vintage black and white photo booth. He sat me down and gave me a book that he had made of photos of us over the years, our animals, post cards we had sent when he was on a motorcycle trip. He even included the label from the first beer we drank together and the cover of a book he lent me (which is how we first hung out in the first place). The last page was a photobooth strip with "Will. you. marry. me." When I looked up he had this beautiful ring. More men should do it this way. Such style and a sweet memento to show off after.

Katie Ann said...

I LOVE THIS. Sometimes I wish I had the man's job of thinking up something creative like this. But since I'm not, I'll just have to cross my fingers that my boyfriend will think of something genius. If he doesn't, I'll just have him re-do it.


...just kidding.
Maybe. ;)
