Most Epic Christmas Proposal Chicago
Though a proposal is a prerequisite for almost every session we book (hey, I’m an engagement and wedding photographer, after all!), seldom am I present for the actual question popping! You can imagine my giddiness every time I get a call to photograph a proposal, then – I feel like I’m on a secret mission in the name of love!
My session with Alex and Alyssa started out with Karen reaching out to me to see if we’d be able to help Alex pull this off. (The answer to this is always yes, by the way). Then she explained how it was going to all go down: Karen ( Alyssa will be home for Christmas and Alex decided to fly from Texas where he lives and surprise Alyssa). On that day Karen and Alyssa -her daughter will be shopping at Macy’s then at 4:00 Pm they will visit Millenium Park. Initially we debated if the Giant Bean wouldn’t be a better choice but in the end, the Wrigley Square with its beautiful Millennium Monument came as the winner.Long story short, Alysa and Karen passing by the Millenium Park and Alex got to do his act!
Finally, Alex got down on one knee and Alyssa was completely surprised couldn’t stop crying happy tears and shouted YES/OF COURSE! Alex did such a good job of orchestrating this whole thing and keeping it a secret from Alyssa, which made for one of the most genuine and sweetest proposals! Not to mention the ring is gorgeous!
Alyssa was also shocked to see Alex’s family here in Chicago witnessing the proposal as well as her whole family that traveled from Crystal Lake.
Congratulations to both of you, and so glad we were there to document this incredible moment!
