Chicago Proposal : Jackie + Brian 1/16/16

When Brian contacted me about shooting his surprise proposal to Jackie I was so excited! I’ve been dying to shoot a proposal for awhile now and it finally happened!

I met him the weekend before to scout out the perfect location along the 606 trail near where they live. On the morning of I got there way too early as I think I might have been more nervous than Brian (ok probably not, but I was seriously anxious!). He was texting me updates on when they were leaving their place so I had a few minutes heads up. Jackie thought they were meeting their friends for a quick walk with their baby along the trail before heading to brunch.

Although there isn’t a lot of area to hide in along there I tried to keep my cameras tucked away under my layers of clothing (it was only about 20 degrees) until they got to the spot and then raced to hide behind some recycling bins. I figured once he got down on one knee Jackie wouldn’t be looking at anything else going on!

She was so surprised and of course said yes! I grabbed a few photos with them after and then sent them off to celebrate!

Thank you for letting me on the proposal and congrats again!

This is where Brian pointed me out creeping in the distance haha!
