Hannah’s Surprise at Starved Rock – Proposal Photography

Hannah’s Surprise Proposal

Most of the time when I’m photographing a wedding proposal my job is to hide, or blend in with the crowd, so the person being proposed to is none the wiser. On this day however, not only was it not required for me to be hidden, I was the ruse for why Stephen & Hannah were in Starved Rock.  The guise of this proposal scheme was that I, a rugby teammate of Stephen, was in need of a couple to photograph at Starved Rock. Stephen, using the old “I have to work, I’ll meet you there” trick, had his friend & roommate Rich, drive Hannah to Starved Rock and meet us. Below is how the day unfolded in pictures.

The ring ready to go in a Batman themed box Stephen made. Yes, believe it, not Hannah’s a huge Batman fan. (Lucky guy).

Lots of tears & joy as Hannah is kind of figuring out what might be going down at the end of this trail.

All is about to be revealed and luckily for Hannah, it’s Stephen & not the Joker.
