Farhan + Sukaina's Perfectly Planned Proposal | Chicago Engagements

I’m behind on my blogging, but as my season starts to wrap up I’m going to start sharing more here, so I figured I would start with this awesome proposal I shot a few months back.

Farhan had every single detail of this beautiful afternoon planned out perfectly, and took Sukaina completely by surprise. He had contacted her favorite gallery, Gruen Galleries in River North, and arranged for her ring to be mounted on a shelf near some of her favorite art. After he proposed, we told her that we were going to take some photos at the Lincoln Park Zoo (he even bought a few dresses for her to change into… like AHEM ALL MEN BE MORE LIKE THIS), but what she didn’t know was that all of her closest friends had flown in from around the country to celebrate with them. *cue tears*

After all the hugs and happy tears, we did get to sneak off for a few photos, which I adore. These two are so damn cute and I’m so happy Farhan asked me to document these special moments for them. Check em out below.
