To be honest, I was slightly panicked for the fist time photographing this McKinney Falls State Park proposal. As soon as I arrived at McKinney Falls State Park (very early just in case) there was a 10 minute wait to get in. Ahh freak out!
What if my couple couldn’t get in? Price was counting on me to help pull off his surprise proposal to Natalie, having driven from Houston the night before just for this moment.
The Upper Falls were packed with large families, groups of college-aged kids enjoying the perfectly warm weather and without a lot of wiggle room for positioning myself, I thought for the first time I had bombed it with the location suggestion.
Fortunately, like when the clouds part and the sun shines at just the right heavenly moment, the crowds dissipated and Price was able to get down on one knee and surprise Natalie with a beautiful ring. I lucked out without a single person in the background and Natalie had no idea I was there for them!
After deciding to check out the Lower Falls we were able to get in a few portraits after that I hope they enjoy for many years!
It was so much fun meeting these two and I’m so glad our state park proposal went perfectly.
