Fun and Romantic Engagement Photos in Downtown Austin

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this beautiful engagement session of Kelsey and Joey. In fact, their pictures are very reminiscent of the day Joey proposed. Who doesn’t love some playful whimsy and sunshine?

How The Proposal Happened:

During a warm day at Barton Springs, these two lovebirds were casually hanging out and enjoying the great weather. As Joey took a swim in the pool, which is actually a collection of underground springs, he called out to Kelsey about a treasure he had found while swimming. To get her attention, he called out “Look what I found”!

From the water, he held up a gorgeous diamond ring. Kelsey’s jaw dropped- but her first thought was about the poor person she thought had lost that beautiful ring in the pool. After a few seconds, it finally hit her that the ring Joey was holding out, wasn’t lost at all. Her eyes beamed with delight as she realized that the precious ring was something Joey had bought just for her. This adorable couple will be married this summer!

Fun Arizona Engagement Photography at Sunset

Today, we are so excited to be sharing this sweet engagement photography with you all! From their favorite bar, to the epic desert scenery of Arizona, we love what these two planned for their summer photo session.

Chris and Meagan first met at the law firm they both worked for. They were friends for several years, and would casually flirt with one another from time to time. One night as the two of them went out for a beer after work, Chris decided he would tell Megan about his feelings for her. As he started to confess the way he felt, Megan also shared that she had been harboring a crush on him as well- since day one!

Their first stop for this engagement session, was at the brewery where Chris first confessed his romantic feelings for Megan. They had fun sampling some of their favorite beers, and then went out to the back and took photos by a pretty, historic brick warehouse. Downtown Phoenix is known for cool, artsy shops and allowed for some really unique photography. As they noticed storm clouds coming in, they headed off into the desert for a few final shots. They arrived just in time, and captured some stunning moments of the sun going down over the horizon.

Make sure to pick out your custom save the dates, once you and your better half have taken your engagement pictures!
