Chicago Proposal Photography – Derek & Katherine’s Engagement

Derek and Kate were first introduced by a mutual friend just over a year ago. Blind dates can be brutal. Theirs was blissful!

They attended a show at  the famously hilarious Second City. While the laughter helped ease them comfortably into the date, the true connection they shared quickly became obvious.

Making their way to the Old Town Pour House to enjoy the rest of their evening, the smiles and laughter only multiplied. Within just a few days, they each secretly believed they had met their soul mate.

Derek knew he wanted their marriage proposal to be special so he picked a romantic little spot at South Pound, in Lincoln Park. He also contacted Paparazzi Proposals for some surprise engagement photography. So the moment he dropped to one knee was secretly captured by a discreet photographer armed with a telephoto lens hundreds of yards away!

Check out the amazing pictures of the moments before, during and after his beautiful surprise proposal. A truly beautiful engagement moment! But it didn’t end there. Derek convinced Kate to stop by where it all began, the Old Town Pour House, for a drink to celebrate. Little did she know he had arranged for her friends and family to be there. So Paparazzi Proposals stuck around and took some newly engaged couple portraits to complete this truly magical day! You can also check out another of our Chicago proposals.
