Proposals are high on the list of things I love to photograph and Lincoln Park’s Nature Boardwalk is one of the best spots in the city for it!
Mike and Sarah met in winter of 2013. Sarah came back home to Chicago from college for Christmas break and Mike was in Chicago for an internship. They have a mutual friend from school who was also in town, so they all went out together. Sarah knew that night she wanted to get to know Mike better.
Eventually, they started dating and did the long-distance thing for a while before Mike moved back to Chicago.
They’ve been to the Lincoln Park Zoo many times together, so it was the perfect place for him to pop the question!
Mike was very secretive with his proposal planning and only a few friends and family members knew what he had in mind. Sarah had no idea! I loved Sarah’s reaction when she finally figured out what was going on!
After the proposal, we walked around for a few quick shots of them together before they headed back to The J. Parker to celebrate their engagement! Congratulations Sarah and Mike!
