Should I hire a photographer to photograph my proposal?

What once was an intimate moment has become something couples are capturing and sharing as much as their engagement pics and wedding photos. According to The Knot 2017 Jewelry & Engagement Study which surveyed more than 14,000 engaged or recently married people across the US — 47 percent of couples (nearly half!) hired a photographer to capture the special moment. 

45 percent of proposals occur in a public place such as a scenic spot, garden, park or zoo — signifying a shift away from the typical private proposal.

We have photographed over 100 marriage proposals throughout Illinois. Our favorite locations for Chicago proposal photography, and what we personally consider the best location in Chicago to get engaged, is along the lakefront in front of the magnificent Chicago skyline at North Avenue Beach. Other popular Chicago proposal locations include the Chicago Riverwalk, the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool located in Lincoln Park, The South Pond Pavilion at the Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo, The Chicago Theater, the Garden of the Phoenix Japanese Garden in Jackson Park’s Osaka Garden, The Adler Planetarium, along with the entire Chicago Museum Campus overlooking the Chicago Skyline.

According to The Knot, the top three spots women said they’d prefer to get engaged was (1) on vacation (2) at the site of your first date (3) or at a landmark.
