Russian-born, New York-based photographer Vlad Leto makes a living by taking surprise proposal photos.
Normally, skulking around in the bushes and intruding on other people's intimate moments is cause for concern, not celebration. However, Leto offers couples in love a unique service by physically preserving a moment that would otherwise be left to memory.
Many couples have engagement photos, but few have proposal photos. This way, couples are treated to a glimpse of the special moment as its happening. Leto explains, "I have been doing proposal photography in New York for the last four years, and it has become my favorite kind photography. I love to capture the emotions and the amazement tied to this event."
