Surprise Wedding Proposal Downtown Chicago || Cassie + Jason

Chicago Proposal Photographer

August 28, 2013

I first met Cassie and Jason about 2 years ago at a salon opening party.  They were seriously one gorgeous couple.  Naturally I reached out to them to do some couples photography – they were totally into it.  I was amazed how comfortable they both were in front of the camera.

A few weeks ago Jason reached out to me and mentioned he was planning to propose to Cassie and wanted it to be a surprise.  He asked me to contact Cassie and tell her that I needed them again for another couple’s shoot.  I did – it went great.  Cassie didn’t suspect a thing.

On what felt like one of the hottest days of the summer, I picked up Cassie and Jason and we headed to Lurie Garden at Millennium Park – Jason mentioned that place had special significance to them as they visited Lure Garden and fell in love with it before moving to Chicago.  Once we got to the spot – I pretended to pose Cassie and Jason.  Having Cassie turn her back to Jason and snapped a few photos while Jason got down on one knee and pulled out the ring.  See the surprise on Cassie’s face as I asked her to to turn around for another photo facing Jason.

Congratulations to you guys and best wishes!!!
