We were so excited when we got the phone call from Phil that he was going to propose to Suzie the day after Christmas… and he wanted us to photograph the amazing moment! He had it all planned out to take place at the Milwaukee Public Market, where he and Suzie had their first date :) Equally thoughtful, he had invited their loved ones to be there to witness the big event!
Phil scoped out a great place to pop the question (in the market’s center aisle) where everyone could watch from above! Suzie was hanging out with a couple of friends (and Phil’s accomplices ;)) in the Third Ward that day, and they stopped at the market for lunch when Suzie just so happened to run into Phil looking at some chocolate…
Needless to say, she was completely surprised when she realized he was proposing, and she was so excited to share that moment with some of the closest people in their lives. Of course she said, “YES!” It was so touching hearing the happiness and applause of all of the surrounding market patrons, too! After the big event, Suzie & Phil headed upstairs to join everyone in celebration as they were welcomed with lots of hugs and so many smiles.
After all the excitement, we headed across the street to get some impromptu engagement portraits of the new fiancés! We love how in love and full of joy the two of them look in the photos!
Thank you so much for the privilege of capturing such a special moment in your lives!!! We are so happy for you guys! Congrats again!!!
(Special thanks to Locker’s Floral for letting us hide behind some flowers for awhile until Suzie was in position :))
