"Deeply, inexplicably, irrevocably - that is how you deserve to be loved."  F.D. Soul

I love love.  There is something magical about photographing surprise proposals.   Hanging back and waiting for men to profess their love to the woman of their dreams.  Watching them get down on one knee, witnessing the happy tears, the embraces.  

And the fact that this man chose to have it all documented.  Choosing to photograph this moment so they will be able to look back on this day - weeks, months, even years later is pretty dang romantic.

Diversey Harbor created a beautiful backdrop for Zac's proposal.  While I wasn't able to hear his words to Sam, her tearful smile was enough to know that this was a moment she had been waiting for.  And thankfully the storm decided to pass and left us with the most majestic skies I've seen all Summer.  Click the slideshow below to see how love radiates between these two.
