Will you marry me?

Indoor or Outdoor Proposal

Share with us the places that are meaningful to you and your partner, and we will brainstorm and plan accordingly. We work with you to always get the best location possible, being mindful of weather considerations.

Sensational Surprise 

You're in for a rollercoaster of emotions!
Proposing to the one you love changes everything in an instant. By taking this step toward your shared future, the entire world will disappear, and you will have nothing to think of but relish the joy, and the tears, while we do the rest!

Invaluable Portraits

Sure, the intense emotion of that instant can be overwhelming, but that is also one you'll want to remember for the rest of your life. So don't let this moment slip by undocumented. We have you covered to determine the best light and composition to frame the pictures of your proposal. 


You've decided to pop the question

That single moment will change everything. You both deserve to relive it again and again.

The look on your partner's face, tears of joy, and tight embrace are moments that you'll want to look back on. We are here to preserve these extraordinary memories for you both. To learn more about your story and your plan for the surprise proposal, we offer one-on-one consultation. This helps whether you're a fine planner or trying to balance out different great options, as we will advise, and ease any anxieties you may have.
Your photo session includes early arrival on location, image selection and correction, and a complete digital archive with full print release. Most of our clients add professional prints and outstanding artwork. We can inform you of all the options available so that you can decide what is best for your home.

What Makes Us Different


As a boutique studio, we provide you with attentive care, artistry, and advice to craft the best experience for you. We allow plenty of time before, during, and after each session. We are here to connect with you and discuss your expectations and wishes. 

We aim to create an intimate and relaxed atmosphere where you can soak up each other's presence and forget about everything else.

Frequently asked questions

Where is the best spot to propose in Chicago?

— As Ameline Studio is located on Gold Coast, we might be slightly biased when we say that North Avenue Beach is to be considered for its breathtaking views of the Chicago skyline. There are, of course, other favorite contenders: the Nature Boardwalk at Lincoln Park, Lake Michigan, the Chicago Riverwalk or the Art Institute.

How to make a proposal romantic?

—  Chicago is a beautiful city with plenty of great locations to propose. To make it romantic, the best idea is to have a special time that echoes who you are as a couple and as individuals as well. Think about your partner's interests and preferences; this will help make it personal and memorable.

How to choose an engagement ring?

— Don't be afraid to ask for help! Jewelers, close friends, or family members can provide information and guidance. Your special person has maybe hinted at a style or the correct size. It is an exciting process for an exciting task: asking your fantastic half to become your fiancée!
