This surprise marriage proposal at the Morton Arboretum was so much fun to photograph. When Anthony contacted me and told me about his plans to surprise Courtney with a Spring marriage proposal, I couldn’t wait. This is one of my very favorite moments to photograph (especially when it is a surprise) and Anthony pulled it off perfectly.
He and I worked together to make sure we knew the exact spot he would propose. I have been to this location many times and suggested a specific spot I thought we could capture the moment. He visited the exact spot the week before the proposal and also suggested I pretend to take pictures of nature (wanted me to wear one of those bird watching vests) just to make sure Courtney wouldn’t catch on. I even had a little nature book I pretend to write in as they walked past. At the moment he got down on one knee, we’re pretty positive Courtney was completely surprised. Lots of tears and laughter and………… she said yes.
