The one you love stands atop a windswept cliff. They know something special is about to happen, but they can't be completely sure what - until you kneel down and slowly open the box you've been hiding in your pocket for months.

They see a sparkle as the ring catches the light - and their breath catches in their throat...

For a moment, their eyes meet yours and you see surprise, delight and euphoria.

It's a magical moment in everyone's life and marks a special place in your journey together.

As photographers, photographing proposals is one of our favourite assignments. There's nothing like capturing the rapture of the day!

Here are some helpful tips for planning your Scottish wedding proposal.

1. Communicate with your photographers! Let us know ahead of time where you'd like to go, so we can plan how best to work around the light. During this moment, there will be absolutely no direction or interference from us - so we want to arrange with you ahead of time where to position yourself and the person you're going to propose to..  It might be worth pre-arranging a signal so we know exactly when you're going to begin.

2. Pick your time of day carefully. Not only will that ensure the best possible light, it will also ensure the areas are as quiet as possible. Skye is fortunate to be adored by tourists - but when you're trying to have a quiet, private and romantic moment, you don't necessarily want too many people around. The photograph below was taken in July (peak tourist season on the Isle of Skye) in the early evening - and there wasn't a soul to be seen. This is quite rare, but planning your time carefully can make all the difference.

Jason opted to propose to his girlfriend, Sophie, at around six in the morning - to avoid the many visitors that go to Eilean Donan Castle.

Chad proposed to his girlfriend, Jenna, at Brothers' Point - one of Skye's quieter locations.  They were able to get a beautiful, private moment in the awesome surroundings.

3. Relax and enjoy it. While you are proposing, we will be posing as tourists with good cameras, casually taking photographs of the landscape. We've perfected our act over the years (but only after one girl asked her boyfriend if we were stalking them!)

It would definitely be worth sending your chosen photographers a picture of you both beforehand - just on the off chance there happens to be two couples proposing to each other on the same day!

But, after all the planning is done, relax and sink into the spontaneity of the moment. Trust your photographers to capture that moment and focus only on the person you love most.
