Marc + Mary Elizabeth ~ Chicago Proposal Photography

We got the best email from Marc when he first reached out to see if we were available to document the big moment when he proposed to his long-time girlfriend, Mary Elizabeth!! His passion and excitement for life and love for Mary Elizabeth was so apparent from the very first email. He wanted to make sure this moment was perfect for her and he could hardly wait for the weeks to pass before the big day!

When the day finally came, the forecast showed rain ALL DAY – and yet, somehow, we managed to find the tiniest window of time where there was a lower chance of rain and crossed our fingers that mother nature would cooperate! As it was – the timing couldn’t have been more perfect! Marc and Mary Elizabeth arrived at North Avenue Beach (my favorite skyline view in the city!) with foggy skies and storms looming… but the rain held off until right after we wrapped up shooting and were all on our way!! It was really perfect!!

But enough chatter from me – let’s just get to the photos!! 😉


(The heart made of pennies marked the spot where the big moment would happen!)



So sweet!!! Congratulations, Marc & Mary Elizabeth!!!!
