I arrived at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle on a snowy Saturday in April. It was quite the journey getting there with snow covered roads (who would’ve though in April), but it was so worth it. The snow definitely made this proposal even more memorable. As a Morton Arboretum proposal photographer, I enjoyed photographing this special moment for Logan and Erin.
Logan and Erin walked a trail on the east side of the Morton Arboretum. Myself and the family that was there to see the special moment parked on the west side of the arboretum near the spruce plot. We all got our umbrellas out, and excitedly waited for the proposal. Logan and Erin’s family were so incredibly kind, and switched off helping me hold an umbrella so my camera wouldn’t get wet.
As they walked down a snow covered trail on an unexpectedly wintery April day, Logan paused for a moment. He pulled a photo booklet out and showed it to Erin. When she got to the last page, there was a photo of an empty ring box. That’s when Logan got down on one knee, and asked Erin to marry him.
Also there to witness the special moment were Erin and Logan’s family. They stood at a distance hovered around each other with umbrellas, and waited for Erin to notice. When Logan pointed out all of the family members there, Erin started smiling, and there were lots of hugs all around. You can tell in these photos how glad Logan and Erin were to share this special moment with their families.
It was cold and wet, but you can’t tell by looking at Logan and Erin together. As a Chicago proposal photographer, I love capturing images immediately following a proposal, because you are so excited and in the moment, which definitely shows through in the photos. Logan and Erin, thanks for having me capture this special moment in your lives. Congratulations on your engagement!
