John + Iza Engagement (Part 1)

Our friends John and Iza got engaged last Memorial Day Weekend in Florida. They were walking along the beach when John decided that the moment had arrived. He got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. :) Isn't that so romantic?? However, the story doesn't end there. Iza was so surprised by the proposal that "Yes" wasn't the first thing on her mind because of disbelief. They are unclear if she wore the ring without saying the 'Y'-word or not. Oops! As expected, we make fun of her, but I am on her side on this one. Since it happened to me too, I would like to think that the "Yes" was not so forthcoming because she has absolutely ZERO DOUBT in her mind who her prince charming is. So, the "Yes" part is a given. Right? Right. Am so sure of it. :)

So last week, we did a two-part engagement session. First, we met in downtown Chicago and decided to stroll by the river to see what good pictures we could get. This first shot, I just love. Although they are just looking at each other, this picture just says so much, doesn't it? Plus, it doesn't hurt that they are such a cute couple! Photobucket
I saw this red wall and knew they had to pose there, and am so glad I caught John giving Iza a kiss. They both looked so excited ... I can't help but smile at this.

We then headed over to the fountain and John decided to get creative. I dunno about Iza, but I was all for it!

Well, that was our first session. It was hard to pick which shots I should post ... but it will only get harder! The following Sunday, we got even better shots! They were so used to posing for the camera by then, that it made my job such a joy. So watch out for the next post!
