Downtown Indianapolis Proposal: A Monument Circle Surprise Engagement

LOCATION : Indianapolis, Indiana- Monument Circle

I always love photographing proposals— the anticipation, giddiness, and pure joy of it all makes it so incredibly fun. This proposal was extra special to me because my brother in law proposed to his girlfriend and it was the absolute sweetest day with family and friends!

The day they’d been dreaming of since they were high school sweethearts.

Garrett surprised Savannah by proposing in downtown Indianapolis at Monument Circle. He also had her family, his family, and some of their close friends watching from nearby. After the proposal she was surprised by everyone who flew and drove countless hours to be there and plenty of happy tears were shed (hence all the sweet hugging photos!!!). Savannah facetimed a couple of her best friends who weren’t able to be there and their reactions were priceless.

One of my favorite details was that Garrett had her engagement ring designed to be similar in style to the promise ring he had gifted her years earlier. It was such a sweet full circle moment and the attention to detail was so intentional! Not only that, but he also bought press-on nails (in her favorite color of course!) to pop on for a few photos since her nails weren’t done. How freaking sweet is that!!!

After the proposal, everyone headed to a local bar to celebrate and then the families had dinner at a nice restaurant downtown! Once it was dark out we had to snap some fun flash photos in front of the monument too— what an amazing day!!! Cheers to forever you two!
