‘How Not to Propose’ is a charming tale of a young guy who tries to confess his love for a girl, but things go awry. After Travis and Lena have dated for some time, the former wants to take the next step in their relationship. However, after buying an expensive engagement ring, he loses his job. Travis begins moping until his brother suggests that he should take Lena “glamping” or glamorous camping.

The trip is anything but romantic and almost ends on a sad note when Lena expresses she’s gotten a chance to go to Munich for studies. However, on their way back home, Travis receives some good news, which finally gives him the courage to ask Lena for her hand. The romance in the tale is only accentuated by the setting, which might make you wonder where the movie’s been filmed. Not only will we take you through the shooting locations, but we’ll also introduce you to the cast.

How Not to Propose Filming Locations:

‘How Not to Propose’ has been filmed primarily in Big Bear Lake, California. The Film Services in the area provide various incentives to cast and crew members, including location scouting and setting up links with production companies. Moreover, filming in California ensures that not a lot of money is spent on transportation, which helps projects like ‘How Not to Propose’ remain within budget.

Check out a photo shared by the cast member. It shows the filming location, but contrary to the romantic atmosphere one would expect, the place looks rather creepy.

Some parts of the filming might have taken place along the Pacific Coast Highway, which is one of the most crucial transportation routes of California. You can see an image of the sunset over the PCH.
