I love proposals - they hardly ever go according to plan. A few weeks ago Ben set out to plan a romantic day. They'd start off with a moped ride across the city, walk around a few of their favorite shops, then head to the park where he and his soon to be fiancee would walk through the conservatory. Finally they would end up in the gardens of Volunteer Park where he would propose and have a picnic prepared.
Fast forward a few weeks - the day arrives. Ben and Casey's morning goes as planned, until they get to the park... There just so happens to be not one, not two, but three weddings going on in the park that very same day. One of them was directly interfering with his planned proposal spot. He called me up and pretended to be talking to his mom in hushed tones as we quickly changed plans for him to pop the question inside the conservatory. Personally, I think everything ended up just fine. I've always wanted to shoot some couple portraits in that beautiful little building.
Congratulations Ben and Casey! You're one lovely couple.
