Recently, we had the amazing opportunity of photographing a live proposal here in Chicago. It was a first for us, but we couldn’t be happier with the photos we took and the couple who gave us the chance to take a proposal session in the first place!
Donald and Danielle’s Chicago Proposal Photo Session
We’ve literally never photographed a live proposal here at This Is Feeling—not ever! From what we know about them, they almost never run on time, and they can be extremely difficult to photograph without blowing the surprise. And even still, there’s no way of knowing how they’ll even turn out, right?!
But when we got a call from Donald about his upcoming proposal, we knew we had to get this one on film. He just had the best attitude about what it would take for us to photograph his special proposal to his girlfriend Danielle next to the Chicago River outside of Chicago’s Gibsons Italia. Donald had a fierce confidence about getting it done, too.
But sure enough. Both Donald and Danielle ran late. It was also both cold and slightly sprinkling outside… I’m sure it wasn’t exactly what Donald was expecting.
But do you know the beautiful thing about someone who’s determined and ready to propose? Nothing’s going to get in their way. Nothing! Donald was going to propose that day, rain or shine!
Well, of course, she said yes! And a few days after their proposal, this spontaneous couple ran off to Vietnam for a quick vacation. We were so excited to hear from them after their trip! Not only were they thrilled with the photographs we sent them, but they also wanted to chat with us about photographing their upcoming wedding!
We want to give a big thanks for Gibsons Italia in Chicago for letting us use their property for the proposal.
Congrats, Donald and Danielle! You two deserve all the happiness life has to offer!
