Lady Bird Lake Boardwalk Proposal

Y’all – photographing proposals is NOT easy. Especially at a public place like the Lady Bird Lake Boardwalk.

For Nicola & Adriana, we needed to nail a specific location (“somewhere on the boardwalk” is really vague) pre-scout this location to make sure it was still good, draw up a diagram using Google Maps and THEN hike 2 miles from my car just to get to the good spot.

For every proposal, I don’t just show up and take pretty photos. I’m guiding you from the first email all the way through the last and final delivery. I tell you where to go, when to show up, and what to say to get your partner in the right spot.

I drew Nicola a really clever stick figure drawing of exacltly how he should propose. This is so we’re all on the same page and I’m not in the wrong spot to capture the reaction!

Nicola and Adriana were originally scheduled for exactly at sunset, but because they ended up running late and the way the boardwalk is situated, we missed all the gorgeous Golden Hour.

Situations like this are why I don’t offer “short packages” for proposals. Imagine trying to get dressed for dinner, ready and out the door and through rush hour traffic to get downtown before sunset. It just doesn’t happen. (Trust me, I’m a girl.)

I love the way the Austin skyline looks at night.

The Boardwalk is such a great place for winter evening proposals. Just look at all those beautiful colors!
