Boyfriend Secretly Proposes on Camera for a Month in Hilariously Epic Viral Photo Shoot

Some girls just don’t DO plans—my commitment-issue self included. Ask us to go to a 5-star dinner next Saturday, chances are we flake… but we might be down for a Taco Tuesday if you shoot us a text an hour before.

Cally is one of those girls.

Thankfully her boyfriend Edi was all too familiar with his other half’s tendencies, which forced him to improvise when it came to landing the perfect proposal. He knew that if he planned a fancy dinner or one of those elaborate ‘marry me’ flash mobs, Cally would have instantly picked up that something was going on.

So instead, he got innovative, deciding to patiently wait for the perfect moment in his own ‘spontaneous style.’ After about a month of waiting for that moment to arise, he realized what a missed opportunity it was to NOT be documenting this process.

In a series of photos that feature both the ring and a totally clueless Cally, Edi captures his playful journey to one epic engagement that the Internet is sure to NEVER forget:

“I can finally put this out there … So, this was how I proposed to Cally!”

Those who have gone through this (and those who will soon find out) you want to propose in a way that speaks to you as a person and couple. Some plan a flash mob, a fancy meal, or even arrange a marry me sign. I couldn’t do this because ‘Edi doesn’t plan’ …. I’m a spontaneous improviser!

This made it even more of a challenge because Cally knows this, and the moment I planned a holiday or meal she would have clocked on to what I was about to do.

Because of this I took the ring with me everywhere hoping the ‘moment’ would arise in line with my spontaneous style.

After a month or so of waiting for the right moment, I was sitting on the sofa admiring ‘my precious’ (yes I became very attached to this ring by this point) Cally almost caught me staring at the ring, and it hit me! All these missed opportunities mixed in with the thought – Cally doesn’t know I have the ring! I should just start documenting these moments!

   

This escalated quickly into trying to get as many photos of Cally with the ring without her knowing! Yes, she had no idea what I was doing in these photos!
