Mikal & Freddie

A Full Experience Marriage Proposal

Marbella, Spain
With the sun beginning to set over the shimmering sea, he got down on one knee, ready to propose and ask Mikal to spend the rest of their lives together.

As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the privilege of capturing some truly magical love stories. But there’s something extra special about being there for a surprise marriage proposal. The anticipation, the nerves, the pure joy when they say “YES”—it’s an honor to document such an intimate, once-in-a-lifetime moment.

This particular marriage proposal in Marbella was one for the books. Freddie and Mikal, a couple visiting from Ghana, were vacationing in the stunning coastal town of the Costa del Sol. Little did Mikal know, Freddie had an extraordinary surprise in store.

With the help of ace planner Yasmin Daoud, Freddie rented a breathtaking private villa overlooking the glittering Mediterranean Sea. He was ready to pop the question in the most romantic way possible.

As I arrived at the private villa, the stage was being set for an unforgettable evening. Escorted by a candle path scattered with rose petals, a stunning floral structure framed the infinity pool. Such a romantic proposal idea! A violinist was there to serenade the couple with their special song “Beauty and the Beast” for the big moment.

You could feel the electricity in the air as Freddie entered the space nervously holding hands to his future wife-to-be. And then, finally, it was time. With the sun beginning to set over the shimmering sea, he got down on one knee, ready to propose and ask Mikal to spend the rest of their lives together.

The look on Mikal’s face when she realized what was happening was utterly priceless. There were tears of joy, squeals of delight… and of course, she said YES! The look on Mikal’s face when she realized what was happening was utterly priceless. At this very moment, sparkles appeared in the air, LITERALLY!

There were tears of joy, squeals of delight… and of course, she said YES! Freddie slipped that sparkling engagement ring on her finger, and soon after they hopped on a video call to share the exciting news as their family and friends back home smiled hugely.

After the proposal, we took some dreamy golden hour portraits around the villa grounds while they basked in that just-engaged glow. Then it was time for an intimate candlelit dinner prepared by a private chef, set against the romantic backdrop of twinkling lights and dancing flames.

Freddie and Mikal’s destination marriage proposal in Marbella checked all the boxes for how to plan the perfect proposal: A stunning location, sentimental touches, an element of surprise, and an outpouring of love and joy. It was an evening they’ll cherish forever, and I’m so grateful I could be there to document it all through my lens.
