Late autumn in Mexico City is just perfection – there is the most amazing golden light in the afternoons. A stunning atmosphere for a surprise proposal, for sure. So, when Wilson reached out to me to help plan and coordinate his surprise proposal in Mexico City, I knew exactly where and when would be the perfect setting. It was fun to collaborate with him on the surprise and share my favorite locations around this city that I deeply love.  

Best Location for a Surprise Proposal in CDMX

Because Mexico is my home, and I’m always documenting love stories in and around Mexico City, I have a huge knowledge of photo-worthy places in the city. You can bet that I’ll help with the logistics of when and where to capture your biggest moments: surprise proposals, engagements, destination weddings, whatever!

Roma Norte is one of the most popular neighborhoods in Mexico City for visitors and it’s clear why – a beautiful mix of bright colors, amazing restaurants, and historical architecture. It’s also what made this a perfect location for this surprise proposal! We chose Plaza Rio de Janeiro for the big moment, with gorgeous, golden dappled light coming through the trees. Mia was in total shock when Wilson proposed and it couldn’t have been a more beautiful moment to be a part of. 

How To Plan a Surprise Proposal in Mexico City

I’m here to help! We’ll have a meeting to go over the details of your plans for the big moment and decide together the best location, timing, and flow. After you pop the question, we’ll take some time to make some emotion-filled and beautiful portraits of the two of you around the neighborhood. You’ll just need to make sure they’re dressed for the occasion and some amazing reservations to celebrate afterward!  

Wilson’s Kind Words on Planning a Surprise Proposal

“It was our first trip to Mexico City and we didn’t know what to expect, but Dacia planned the perfect location and timing for the proposal, which resulted in beautiful photos that represent the joy of the moment. We left with a newfound love for the city and a forever commitment to one another. I highly recommend Eager Hearts Co. for anyone seeking a skilled and thoughtful photographer.”
