Guess How This Art Director Proposed

We were staying on a houseboat in Amsterdam for three months when I first met Viviane. My wife did a test shoot with her, and I shot some videos that day, and we became friends. She’s an international model represented by Premier Model Management and ModelwerkHer then-boyfriend and now fiancé is an art director in Amsterdam. 

By being in the trade of creating fantasy that we know as advertising, he made her play out a role of pacing through woods like she was running away from wolves. He would film the scenes. It was a story he made up about an ad he wanted to pitch to a client. The computer-generated wolves chasing her would be added in post — a fairytale akin to that of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast. She went for it, and being the model she is, did a great job of it.  

The great part about this is that the video will remain forever for the world to see. It’s the moment she said "yes." I believe it’s one of the best proposal ideas I’ve ever seen, and it was executed perfectly. The creative couple involved have told a beautiful story using the resources they have.
