I just love capturing a good surprise marriage proposal! So when Jake reached out to me to share his plans to pop the question to his girlfriend Korinn (soon to be fiancé!) I jumped at the chance to capture this sweet moment.
It was an absolutely perfect spring morning. Jake and Korinn had actually planned to do a photo session together with their sweet pup, Sterling. Such a cutie! I love it when couples include their pets in their portrait sessions. We met up in German Village at the beautiful Schiller Park.
After spending a little time walking around the park and just enjoying the morning, things were about to get a whole lot more fun! I knew what was coming of course, so I got butterflies in my stomach for them as I watched this sweet moment unfold:
Could this moment be any sweeter? I just love how Korinn knelt down to meet him and wrapped her arms around him – and that look of pure joy and elation!
Not even a few minutes after the proposal, some people just walking by enjoying the park shared their excitement for the new fiancés! I love these types of moments and total strangers sharing such excitement.
This wonderful news calls for some twirls!
So I guess they say to leave the best for last, and in this case, my favorite image from this shoot. So stinking’ cute! I just love the playful and genuinely joyful vibes going on here. Congrats to Korinn and Jake! I am SO excited to be your photographer again for your wedding day next summer!
