Tell me your proposal story & win an engagement session!

It is the question asked the whole year leading up to the wedding. How did he propose? You have told it over and over and over again, and yet you still do it with a smile every time because it was one of the most special moments in your relationship.

So future brides & grooms, if you still have “get engagement photos taken” on your to-do list, I am giving away an engagement session for the best proposal story. Here’s what you have to do:

1. Like Brittany Bekas Photography on Facebook (if you don’t already). You must be a fan to enter the contest.

2. E-mail me a photo of you and your fiancee along with your proposal story to brittany@brittanybekas.com by May 17th.

3. Beginning May 18th, the stories and photos will be posted on Brittany Bekas Photography’s Facebook page to be voted on. Have your friends and family vote on your story via the like button, but they must be a fan of Brittany Bekas Photography for their vote to count. Voting ends May 26th at midnight central time.

4. The couple with the most votes will be announced May 27th. The lucky couple will win an engagement session with me. Please note, the session will be in the Chicagoland area.

I look forward to hearing all the romantic/funny/sweet/quirky ways that you got engaged!

 

Downtown St. Charles Engagement :: Karen + David

They both knew of each other, but they didn’t know each other…yet. David and Karen hung out in the same circle of friends, but it wasn’t until Karen was persuaded into celebrating a friend’s birthday in Chicago over four years ago that she really talked to David. However, Karen still had a month left of school to finish at Northern Illinois, so the distance did not allow the two to get into a relationship right away. It wasn’t until the week before Karen’s college graduation, when David visited her at school with two of their mutual friends that the sparks went off between them. It was official. Karen and David started dating.

Karen is bubbly, care-free and at times, a complete goofball. David is patient, loyal and somewhat of a romantic. They compliment each other perfectly. The yin to the other’s yang. Over the years, the two traveled have to Riviera Maya, Arizona, the Grand Canyon, and Breckenridge together. Snowboarding. Hiking. Biking. Exploring. Always by the other’s side.

They still act like teenagers in love for the first time. Catching glances of each other across the room. Sneaking little kisses when no one is looking. Holding hands down the street. Their love is contagious.

Karen and David will marry at St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church in River Forest in October. We met in downtown St. Charles for their engagement sessions, and I couldn’t have had more fun with this adorable, fun-loving couple. Here are a few of my favorites……
