Company Background

What is Paparazzi Proposals?

Paparazzi Proposals is a company that organizes trained photographers to secretly capture the most important parts of a marriage proposal. They have captured thousands of proposals across America and beyond with attention to detail to ensure that the exact moment of the proposal and the treasured reaction are captured in paparazzi style.

Who Owns Paparazzi Proposals?

Before the birth of Paparazzi Proposals, the Founder, James Ambler, studied to get a BA in Photographer and aspired to become a war photographer as he was fascinated by the propaganda during the Vietnam War. He then segued into being a breaking news and events photographer in London which, in hindsight, was his training into becoming an actual paparazzi to capture celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Tiger Woods, and Angelina Jolie. Lately James was running a GoFundMe to support the people of Bali through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Founder’s Story

James started to show interest in photography when he was just 14 years old when he and his friends wanted to capture who looked the coolest while doing skateboard tricks. He used to take pictures with his father’s old Pentax camera and his love for documenting moments of his friends skating transitioned into taking photos while traveling to other countries such as Thailand and Nepal.

James had 2 wake-up calls that made him launch Paparazzi Proposals, the first one being at just 28 years old, he had a blocked artery that forced him to receive open-heart surgery. The second was the fact that he was not able to capture his proposal to his now wife, Kate.
