Update: How did we film it without her knowing...? Read below:
We had arranged to film a "Love Story" about Mat and Kylie. That's what we told her anyway. That gave us an excuse to be there. So we spent the afternoon filming them at various locations. We then had 'one last location' to film in. So we raced ahead and set up our cameras. Kylie knew we were there filming, but because we'd spent the afternoon together both Mat and Kylie were quite comfortable around us so it really didn't matter. As soon as the disney video started playing they were in there own little world. We had long zoom lenses on our cameras and were discrete but we didn't try hide in a bush or anything. So that's how we did it!
*** The video that's made thousands of people cry. Watch Kylie's reaction when Mat asks her to marry him!! ***
Occasions like a proposal are so powerful. They can be some of the most beautiful and defining moments of our lives.
So when Mat (who is part of our Perspectives crew) came to us a month beforehand and said he wanted to find a way of proposing to Kylie his girlfriend of 6 years, we were so stoked to be apart of it.
As Kylie has since said. "I can't wait to show my kids this one day" And for us thats what it's all about. Preserving those moments that are so defining and mean so much to people.
If you're looking at this -- and thinking it seems like the coolest idea ever -- well, the good news is, you can book one of these yourself. Or -- suggest it subtly to your man! We'll team up with you and craft a plan for the proposal of your dreams, that you'll be able to remember for ever. www.perspectives.co.nz
