Ryan was really excited to propose to Kelsey. He wanted to surprise her with a perfect moment on the rooftop overlooking the city as the sun set, with roses, champagne… and a photographer! Luckily in his search for “Chicago Proposal Photography” he found my name, and I love photographing proposals (seriously, I REALLY do). It’s like the 007 version of being a photographer- you hide yourself (hopefully in a spot that provides a good angle), start snapping as they drop to one knee and of course- the reaction… “Yes!”
The rooftop was cold and windy, I was hiding behind an air conditioning unit and my fingers had gone numb, but I didn’t care. The adrenaline was pumping! And best of all… there were tears, hugs, kisses, squeals, the champagne was popped and the celebrating began! What a great moment to witness. Congrats Kelsey and Ryan, may this be just one of MANY days worthy of roses and champagne toasts!
She was so excited about her ring!
Then we went downstairs to celebrate with their friends (who helped coordinate all the details).
Face time with the family!
Congrats Kelsey and Ryan!
