The dilemma: Your fiancé is proposing and wants to hire a professional photographer to capture the moment, but you've made it pretty clear in preliminary engagement discussions that you want it to be just the two of you and as intimate as possible (or that you want to be totally surprise). The solution: a ring cam, which is a genius new creation that captures your engagement moment from inside the ring box, with no videographer needed.
So, what actually is it? The Ring Cam looks like a normal ring box, but it's actually accompanied by a built-in HD camera and mic, enabling your special moment to be recorded (up to 90 minutes of footage!), according to MirrorUK. The verdict? Adorable, candid proposal video footage from partners proposing to their significant others — and no professional videographer required (although it's not a bad idea to have a professional photographer on hand as well).
This "Go-Pro" for engagement rings was created by five friends from Michigan and is now on sale in the UK (fingers crossed it makes its way to the USA soon!). On the Ring Cam website, it offers free video edits in just 24 hours post-proposal and instantly downloadable proposal recordings. And for those who are worried about the rental camera being sent via snail mail, device comes in an unmarked envelope for secrecy (no snooping allowed).
For those wishing to "send a nudge" to someone who needs to use a Ring Cam, it's anonymous and shared via email with the proposer-to-be. GENIUS (and so helpful for anyone trying to drop some proposal hints, just sayin'.) All you have to do is enter the person's first and last name, email, and dream proposal with a "nudge" note for them, and the rest is on its way via email to being the proposal of your dreams.

As the video compilation below shows, everyone has a different reaction to their proposal and a different location to ask the all-important question. Tears, shock, dismay, and happiness — just a few of the captures from ring box compilations as of late. Either way, we think it's a great way to capture one of the most important moments in your lives digitally — and forever.
