Ellie & Ryan: Joyous & Picturesque Olive Park Proposal
Getting to capture proposals is simply the best! There is really not much better than getting to witness the moment two people decide to share their life together 🙂 And Ellie & Ryan’s has to be one of my favorites ever! They were visiting Chicago from Atlanta, and when Ryan contacted me, I was thrilled. We made a plan to meet up on a lovely October day, and since it was a bit chilly, we had the place all to ourselves. I pretended to be a tourist taking skyline photos, but of course turned towards them once Ryan gave me the secret “go ahead” signal we agreed on, and got down on one knee. Ellie said “yes!” and her overall reaction was one of the best I’ve ever seen- so so much joy! Plus, Ryan’s decision to do it at the amazing Olive Park next to Navy Pier didn’t hurt, as I’d say that’s one of the best views you can get of Chicago. We spent the next hour taking a million photos, as they were so happy every moment was photo worthy and they didn’t really need to be posed at all, which is one of the reasons why I think I love this session so much 🙂 Check it out for yourself and get ready to have a big smile on your face the whole time!
