Surprise Rooftop Proposal in Austin, Texas | Courtney + Kristen

Proposal Story of Courtney & Kristen

I love a good love story!

Courtney reached out about proposing to Kristen during a couples shoot in downtown Austin! The two of them where both so excited to get married but each wanted a chance to propose to the other. Kristen had surprised Courtney a few months prior with a proposal, surrounded by their closest friends & family! She even had Wes (austin videographer) capture an amazing video of the proposal! Courtney knew she had to do something special and keep it a complete surprise too!

During our shoot, she sneakily passed off the ring box right before they started the session. Once they settled into the flow, Courtney decided to surprise Kristen by getting on one knee! She was SO surprised! Just how Courtney anticipated it! After a resounding yes, I continued to capture them and you can just tell how in love the two of them are!

Congratulations Courtney & Kristen!

hey, i'm molly!

This ain’t an all-day photoshoot, I’m not here to get you to grin at a camera all day long, that would suck. I’m here to capture all the natural and organic moments of a beautiful day filled with things you two love to do the most together. Whether that’s hiking, backpacking, camping, rock climbing, sailing, biking, exploring cities, or sipping on microbrews; whatever your heart desires.
