Surprise Chicago Proposal Tips

Surprise Chicago Proposal Tips

A surprise proposal Chicago! Such fun, and let’s be honest – a little stressful time! It cannot get more exciting and easier with the right photographer, though! 🙂

As someone who has seen & helped with many surprise proposals in Chicago, I understand the complexity and pressure that comes with proposing to the love of your life.

I also understand the importance of this once-in-a-lifetime moment and am committed to ensuring that it is remarkable.

I will help you prepare and feel relaxed to ensure that you can be totally engaged in your moment without any concerns. We will work together to make it a success.

Here are some of my very useful surprise Chicago proposal tips to consider!

– You need to be good at being a little… sly (don’t feel bad about it!)

– Come up with a viable backstory (she may be asking, she may feel suspicious. Us, girls, we have the instinct, so you need to play it out well :))

– We will initially hop on a call and discuss some ideas, and plan it

– We stay continuously in touch in the moments right before we get to the exact location (the one I will confirm is clear to go!) so I can get the right angle, too!

– Don’t forget to hide your ring box in the right place 😉

– Make sure your soon-to-be fiancé dresses her best! Fresh manicure would be great too, as I will do some ring close-up shots

– I will be waiting at the designated spot to capture the moment secretly, and will check in with you once all ready

– When you are ready – go for it! Make a deep eye contact! Kneeling is the best way, but if you forget in the heat of the moment – no worries! What matters is all the genuine emotions

– When she says YES – place the ring on her left hand and enjoy that unforgettable moment!

– After the big moment and some time private time with your now FIANCÉ (yay, you made it!), I will introduce, and we will proceed to capture that post-engagement glow 🙂

– You can plan a celebratory dinner (or an intimate date of you two) afterward to keep the celebration going. This will not only give you and your partner some special time together to bask in the joy of your engagement but also provide your loved ones with an opportunity to offer their congratulations personally

As you can see, this takes some time and preparation, but creates unforgettable memories for you too. A secret proposal is a fabulous way to start this new chapter in your life. I would love to help you plan it, so if you are ready, let’s do this! You can start planning this fun adventure and get in touch with me to HERE
