Rooftop Proposal Atlanta

Find the Perfect Rooftop in Atlanta

Start by finding the perfect rooftop in Atlanta for your proposal! If you’re looking for locations, we have some listed for you further down the page. 😉 There are a coupe unique and romantic options available to choose from! Consider visiting these potential rooftops in advance during different times of day or different days of the week to get a feel for the atmosphere & various lighting conditions. Also be sure to ask if there is a covered option, or what an indoor backup alternative might look like in the event of inclement weather. It’s also helpful to snap some pictures with your cell phone while you’re there to get an idea of what the framing could look like for your big moment. Determine which ones offer the best views, and which one seems like the best fit for your plans.

Contact Your Rooftop Proposal Venue & Book Your Space

Once you select your rooftop, it’s time to contact them and book your space. Most rooftops are thrilled to work with couples who are planning a surprise proposal. Be sure to discuss details such as what decor & equipment can be brought in (ie: rose petals, sound equipment, signage, lighting, etc), available amenities, available times, and policies for bringing in outside vendors (such as photographers, planners, florists, etc). This ensures that your romantic rooftop adventure will be one to remember forever!

Hire a Professional Photographer to Document Your Big Moment

This is one of the most important steps to ensure your proposal is truly unforgettable. A professional photographer will be able to capture all of the special moments, including before, during, and after you pop the big question. (Ahem, ahem) Working with a photographer guarantees you’ll have pictures as beautiful as the moment itself that you can cherish forever. (Check out our pricing listed below 😉)

Plan an Incredible Proposal Experience to Remember

Creating the perfect proposal experience begins with setting the scene, and nothing says romance like Atlanta’s stunning rooftop views! Props such as flower petals and other florals, candles, signage, marquee letters, etc, can also help to make for a beautiful backdrop for your proposal. We recommend planning your proposal to take place about an hour before sunset for the prettiest and most magical lighting. When considering a sunset, twilight, or night time proposal, it’s super important to vet your photographer well in advance to ensure they have the technical skill set to work within the changing light conditions as the sun sets (that is, if you’re planning for sunset rooftop photos). It’s also wise to check the direction the sun will set in for your desired rooftop of choice – the last thing you’d want is to blind your significant other during your proposal.

The last thing to do is to propose! Now it’s time to let your special someone know just how much you care for them. As the Atlanta skyline gleams in the background, deliver your memorable, heartfelt speech as you pop the question. This will be the story the two of you will treasure for years to come!

"We had a great experience! Jaimie guided us through our engagement session with such ease. She spent time prior over the phone and via email educating us on how to not only pick our outfits but how to make our poses not ‘pose-y’. Our engagement shoot seemed to only last a few minutes, it was never awkward and I know both my fiance and I loved it. Jaimie gave us direction while still allowing our personalities to shine through! Definitely would recommend her to anyone!"

"Jaimie and Kyle did our engagement and wedding photos. They were phenomenal to work with and we absolutely loved how our photos turned out. They were super transparent and paid a lot of attention to detail through with the whole planning process and delivered amazing photos from both of our sessions. They were easygoing, laid back, fun to work with, and relatable, which helped us relax and enjoy the sessions even more. I would absolutely recommend if you need a photographer in the ATL area."

"We had the best experience with Jaimie taking our engagement pictures at Piedmont Park! My fiancé and I are clueless in front of the camera but Jaimie guided us the whole way through and it was much less uncomfortable than we were expecting! ... She was so well organized throughout the entire process of scheduling, preparing, and executing the engagement photos and it was very evident that she has a lot of experience... So glad we chose Jaimie for our engagement photos!"
