Luke had no idea where he was going to propose to Anna – all he knew was in Austin and on this exact weekend. He told me Anna liked theater, color and she probably wanted to be dressed up – which ruled out places like Mt. Bonnell and the 360 Overlook. My mind was spinning with ideas and I started spitballing on the phone with Luke – trying to come up with any idea that would be nice and not taken over by SXSW activations.

Finally, I suggested the Capitol and Luke jumped on the idea. She liked history too! He would tell Anna they were going on a tour but “oh darn – we just missed it. Well we’ll walk around the grounds instead,” Then my decoy and I would stop them for pictures of “cute couples for a tourism blog about Austin.”

Congratulations Luke & Anna! I loved swapping maps and diagrams and sending multiple texts back and forth to make sure we were all ready to go. Photographing your downtown Austin proposal was so much fun!
