When I was asked to photograph a proposal that took place at Maggie Daley Park Ice Skating Ribbon, I was totally down for an adventure. After all, this location has become a Chicago landmark where locals and tourists gather to skate around the ribbon, enjoy hot chocolate and snap selfies with the McCormick Tribune Ice Rink. I was there snapping something way better in my opinion 😉

The best time to photograph a proposal at Maggie Daley Park is either before sunset or after sunset. This is because during these times the park is filled with the best light possible!
