Stay With Me | Oliver + Carina

Marriage Proposal at the Adler Planetarium

While this surprise marriage proposal may have been short, it wasn’t lacking on the romance!  Oliver planned this proposal all the way from Austria.  He and Carina were planning a one month trip around the United States at all of the major cities, starting in Chicago.  Oliver knew that he wanted to propose to Carina in Chicago, but didn’t know where.  We suggested the Adler Planetarium to truly show off that he popped the question in our awesome city!  It just so happened that a major storm was about to roll in right on top of us.  We hurried the session along and beat the crazy wind, lightning, and torrential downpour, just in time.  I think that the storm actually added to the look of the photos :)  Oliver and Carina, we wish you all of the happiness in the world! XOXO – Corlis and Megan Gray.

At this point, the sun was already hidden behind a wall of clouds, leaving the city in a blueish-green blanket of light.

Because of the storm, most of the tourists had ran for cover…but not us!  LOL.

Oliver and Carina looked fantastic didn’t they?!

Right before the storm got REALLY SCARY, we grabbed this shot with the ominous clouds over the city.

Carina was overjoyed and you could see it on her face as she cried tears of joy almost the entire session!  We LOVE it!
