Hello lovelies and welcome to another wonderful week. Today’s the beginning of engagement and proposal week here on FWS and to start us off we have the super romantic surprise engagement proposal from Josh Flagg in Paris!
Million Dollar Listing, Los Angeles star Josh Flagg organised a wonderful surprise for Bobby on Thursday, July 14th, when he pulled off a flash mob marriage proposal in Paris, France at The Four Seasons Hotel George V. This beautiful moment was captured perfectly by French Wedding Style vendors Zen Film Works and Claire Morris Photography.
Let’s begin today’s feature with their perfectly filmed proposal trailer from Zen Film Works:
Zen Film Works – “Josh and I have a new mutual friend. I had filmed Josh’s executive producer, Angela’s wedding in Paris a few months earlier. She was so impressed with her film that she recommend to Josh that I shoot his proposal. After a review of the portfolio and looking at Angela’s wedding film he was on board.”
“There were a few challenges to deal with on this shoot as there are with most proposals. One being audio, we had to hide microphones on Josh, his mother and father. This was difficult as Bobby was a very observant fellow so we had to hide well and quickly as we had to have them find excuses to be away from Bobby for that time to get the mics on without him noticing anything was happening.”
“We were planning on shooting this outside in the beautiful courtyard, however Mother Nature had other plans for us and the rain came.”
“It was Bastille day in France so there were road blocks and extra security everywhere for the parade and safety, so logistics was a problem and we had to add an extra hour onto a usual 15 minute trip in the city. There was also a very high list celebrity staying at the hotel so filming in the hotel was limited.”
“Keeping the surprise proved difficult. Our usual style of filming is to be pretty discrete, however to keep up the charade and not let Bobby feel that he was the star of this film until the proposal itself was quite the challenge.”
“Bobby’s reaction and his obvious welling of emotion had me tearing up while I was shooting. There were only smiles and love in the room the whole time. The dancers cheered and clapped insanely loud and it really enhanced the experience.”
