Need some proposal inspiration? This Amsterdam proposal on one of the city’s iconic bridges is giving us major proposal envy.
Jeffrey decided that he and his girlfriend’s trip to Amsterdam and Iceland was the perfect time to pop the question. With Flytographer Tania’s help, he pulled off a gorgeous Amsterdam proposal on one of the city’s iconic bridges because, well, capturing those gorgeous canals is a must when proposing in Amsterdam. Read on for the full story, plus plenty of stunning photos.
HOW THEY MET
We both moved to New York City after college and met on a dating app. After a few dates getting to know one another, we found we were highly compatible with one another in a way neither of us thought possible. Sometimes, the puzzle pieces just fit. To this day, we’re surprised we found each other.
Although we both love the outdoors, we absolutely love cities. Amsterdam not only looked like a beautiful location to propose, but we both fell in love with the city the instant we stepped foot in it. We booked a trip that started in Amsterdam and its fun and unusual urban vibe made this the perfect location for us. This wonderful destination will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
THE BIG DAY
After a full day of exploring — including a walking tour, Dutch pancakes, exploring the market in De Pijp, and a drink at de Tulp, we went back to our Airbnb to freshen up before dinner. On the way to the restaurant, we made a pit stop at Magere Brug, or the Skinny Bridge, to take a photo. Next thing you know, we’re engaged!
Our photographer Tania was absolutely fantastic! I am thoroughly impressed with Tania’s work, it exceeded my highest expectations. The quality of pictures is priceless — above and beyond my expectations. – Jeffrey
