Chicago Beach Proposal: Carly + Travis

Chicago Proposal PhotographyCarly + Travis


For Travis's birthday, Carly planned him a trip to the windy city for their very first visit to Chicago. Little did she know, Travis had something special planned for HER for their weekend getaway together. Carly and Travis arrived in Chicago around 11:00am, took a taxi into the city, checked into their hotel at the Four Seasons, then made their way over to Chicago's Museum Campus. Travis told her the views of the city were a must see, and they certainly were that day. With clear blue skies and sunshine, the couple walked hand-in-hand along the lake shore, taking in the beautiful sights of the city. Afterward, Travis insisted they needed to check out the neighboring beach. While she was a little confused why he was so eager to walk the length of the beach, an unsuspecting Carly agreed and they continued their adventure along beautiful Lake Michigan. Travis brought her to a private nook at the end of the beach. Pretending to pick something up, he got down on one knee, pulled out a dazzling ring and proposed.

Photographing proposals is a favorite of mine, and this Chicago beach proposal was no exception. The moment was filled with happy tears, smiles, and lots of sweet hugs and kisses. It was such an honor to document the beginning to a whole new chapter in their lives. Congratulations to Carly and Travis! It was a pleasure working with you. I hope you both enjoyed your weekend vacation to Chicago.
