Downtown Chicago proposal

Pop the confetti + cue the happy dancing… Boone and Kelsey are ENGAGED!!!!!

Capturing this epic moment for two people who are so perfect together was a career highlight FOR SURE. Before popping the question, Boone thoughtfully planned a surprise scavenger hunt for Kelsey around the city and got their closest friends and family involved. Kelsey was greeted at each spot with a postcard + handwritten clues, which finally brought her to the Wrigley Building where Boone in front of the giant tree with a ring box (talk about Christmas goals!!!) These two were so excited and full of joy, they couldn’t stop giggling and hugging!!!

Congrats to these two sweethearts!!! Enjoy a few of my favorites from Boone and Kelsey’s joyful proposal below!
