Imagine flying into Chicago on Friday to look for apartments, finding and signing the lease for the perfect one less than 24-hours later, then going for a walk to explore what will soon be your new home and getting engaged in the process… Yep, it’s been quite the weekend for Steve & Marjorie!!
He contacted me a few weeks ago about needing a photographer for “a big personal event” (aren’t guys about to propose so freaking adorable?) so of course I was smitten right away!! By the next day we had a full plan on how this proposal was going to go. Somehow, he managed to have both sets of parents and a couple of friends keep the secret from Marjorie, who thought he would maybe pop the question during an upcoming family trip next month. So when they casually stopped at the Ghiradelli shop (she’s from San Francisco and therefore a huge fan), she had no idea what was coming once they left the store. The shocked look on her face was priceless!! By the time she said yes, we had a small crowd cheering. It was truly a fabulous night. I can’t wait to take their official engagement portraits next month, once they’re official Chicagoans.
