Picture or Video?

Over the short life of this blog, we've posted a bunch of proposals caught on video. Some have been pretty awesome/creative, others not as exciting. We recently read this article in the New York Daily News about a man who captures proposals on his camera for a living. Not surprising he used to be a part of the paparazzi.


He is actually serving a very interesting market, one that seems to be getting bigger and bigger. With YouTube and Facebook we are obviously sharing videos and pictures at unprecedented rates. There are 48 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute and eight years of content every day! As for Facebook, there are 6 billion pictures uploaded each month! 

The ease of transferring visual information today has to contribute to the number of marriage proposals being caught on video, and through pictures. 

For those of you who aren't engaged, do you want your engagement captured either on video or through a camera lens? Will we get to the point where it's more the rule than the exception for there to be visual evidence of the actual engagement? For those who are already engaged or married and didn't capture this moment as it happened, would you do it over again to record everything if you could?

If you're in the camp of having evidence of your engagement, would you prefer to have it be on video or through a plain, old camera?
