Photographer in Athens Captures Surprise Proposal

It all started as a normal day for Megan & Uriah but what would happen next on the Acropolis of Athens would be written forever in their unique story…

Athens Photographer Vassilis Adamopoulos captured the surprise proposal of Megan & Uriah in Athens during a photo shoot. He tells the story:

Well, life is full of surprises. Like the one Uriah organized for Megan. Two Texans, living in Germany for the last year. Uriah planned a two day hopping to Athens where he would ask her to marry him.

He contacted me through KYMA and as I was not available on Saturday afternoon, the other option was Sunday morning. To make Megan wake up early, Uri had told her that they were going on a group tour and there would (incidentally) be a photographer. By the time I met them at the new Acropolis museum, I guess she had realized that there was no group, just a photographer.

We made a morning walk around Acropolis and when the timing (and the scenery) was right Uri made his move, with the ancient rock as a backdrop.

For me, it was the first time making this kind of session and it was a wonderful experience. Uri and Megan, I wish you all the best! Thanks for everything.
