“In all the world there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world there is no love for you like mine.” – Maya Angelou. // This quote perfectly explains the love between these two – Gary and Joty’s romantic Chicago Boat Proposal was just spectacular!
I have photographed many proposal’s and each one seems to surprise me outdoing the one before with the level of creative detail that goes into it! When Gary called me to explain his idea for a Chicago Boat Proposal for his long-time girlfriend, Joty, this was super unique. He had rented a boat from Chicago Boat Rentals (who were absolutely fabulous with the whole plan!) and that he wanted me to ride along and act like I was from the boat rental company and when he proposed I could capture the whole thing. I had the idea to tell his girlfriend that I was from Chicago Boat Rentals and that I needed to ride along to take marketing photo’s for their website. I have to say Chicago Boat Rentals was AMAZING in helping us put this together! As soon as I arrived they knew who I was and even introduced me to the couple as part of their team when Gary and Joty arrived. It was perfect!
It was scheduled to rain, but the skies cleared and it was just a gorgeous day. Gary and I had planned that at one point I would say “why don’t you two stand up and I’ll get a photo of you for their marketing – at this point Gary then turned and got down on one knee and proposed! Gary and Joty are just the sweetest couple, they met in grade school and started dating in middle school! They said their families have been planning their wedding for years 🙂 I have to thank Gary, Joty and Chicago Boat Rentals for helping make this amazing Chicago Boat Proposal come together! xo – Lisa
