Underwater mermaid proposal is fairy-tale perfection

Eric Martinez decided to pop the question to his girlfriend, Cammy Rynae Cuoco, creating an unforgettable Little Mermaid fantasy. To pull off his underwater proposal, he enlisted the help of Del Sol Photography and photographer Polly Dawson.

The couple traveled to Riviera Maya in Mexico, and Martinez got down on one knee in a cave with a stunning ray of light shining through. Wait, that’s not all. A big surprise followed. Cuoco dressed up as a mermaid for the second part of her proposal. She slipped into a custom-made mermaid’s tail, and Martinez brought a ring pop to complete the wow-worthy moment. Photographer Dawson told Yahoo, “I thought it was really fun to play with the idea of that iconic proposal shot and create truly fairy-tale images.”
