Millennium Park Winter Proposal | Dave & Tracy


Dave contacted me a few days ago about capturing a surprise Millennium Park Winter Proposal. I, of course, jumped at the chance to capture this moment for Dave and Tracy. Dave planned an entire afternoon for Tracy. Their afternoon started at The Chicago Theater to see Cirque de Soleil Twas the night before Christmas. Afterward, they took a romantic Horse and buggy ride down the majestic Michigan Ave to Millennium Park. The park was packed with holiday shoppers and visitors from around the globe. Dave stopped Tracy at the side of the Chicago Christmas tree and got down on one knee! The passer buyers stopped dead in their tracks and watched this beautiful moment unfold before them. After we captured some portraits at Millennium Park, Tracy and Dave took the Horse and buggy ride to The Water Tower where we ended our Winter Engagement session. The night couldn’t have been more perfect for this beautiful couple. Thank you, Dave and Tracy, for having me be a part of this amazing season of your life! I wish you both all the love and happiness in the world. Congratulations!!!

      Winterlyn, Thank You! so very much for capturing this special moment for Tracy and I. You went out of your way to make it all happen for us and the photos you took are truly amazing!
