Milton Lee Olive Park Surprise Proposal // Chris + Emma

Chicago Proposal Photographer

Chris contacted me more than a month ago and wanted to propose to Emma in Chicago. We ultimately decided on Milton Lee Olive Park – a really great spot for a proposal. It has an epic view of the skyline! I like the proposals where I can hide in plain sight pretending it’s just a regular photo session. This gave me the chance to pose Emma with her back to Chris as he dropped to one knee…she was completely surprised!!!!!

It was an incredible session and I got to know Chris and Emma a bit. They’re both such wonderful people – I can’t tell you enough how awesome they are. Chris works for the Oklahoma Thunder, is incredibly personable and very well spoken! A super cool dude.

Emma is a badass fashion blogger – follow her on instagram -> @emmaginethis and check out her website. You could tell she has style – her and Chris were both dressed extremely well. She’s also fun, loves photography and is now engaged to Chris!

Congrats to these two awesome people! I’m glad to have met them. Here’s a few photos from Chris’ Chicago surprise proposal at Milton Lee Olive Park:

Oh yeah – it was windy AF!
