Sara and Wes’s Hamilton Pool Proposal

When Sara’s sister contacted me to see if I’d be down to hide out at Hamilton Pool and capture Wes’ marriage proposal, you can bet I jumped at the chance.  Hamilton Pool is one of the most beautiful places in Austin (and probably Texas), and my family has been going there for generations.

Anywhere else, and an outdoor February proposal by the water might be a nightmare, but here in Austin, we got a beautiful early spring morning.  Maybe a little too cold to swim, but perfect for short sleeves at sunrise.

Wes included his and Sara’s families in the planning process, and had secretly brought them in town for the proposal.  Sara thought she and Wes were just taking a little vacation in Austin; little did she know what awaited her!  Wes knew that the only thing Sara wanted in a proposal was a photographer to capture it, so this was a perfect scenario.

Luckily, Hamilton Pool is beautiful and attracts photographers from the world over, so I didn’t have to hide in the woods.  As Wes and Sara walked by with their families, Wes held back for a moment as the families walked on.  He dropped to his knee and popped the question to a shocked and overjoyed Sara.  Of course she said yes, and the rest is history!  Please enjoy these beautiful pictures of a beautiful moment at a beautiful location, and reach out if you are planning a proposal of your own!A silhouette of a couple embracing in front of a waterfall at Hamilton Pool in Austin, Texas A silhouette in front of a waterfall of a couple kissing at Hamilton Pool in Austin, Texas A young couple in silhouette in a grotto behind a waterfall after their wedding proposal A young couple walk together under a curved rock wall at Hamilton Pool In front of a green fern-covered wall, a young woman holds out her hand to examine her new engagement ring Closeup image of young couple's hands after their marriage proposal A young couple look at the woman's new engagement ring after their Hamilton Pool wedding proposal A young woman looks incredulously at her new engagement ring in front of a fern-covered rock wall A laughing young woman leans against her fiance in front of a fern-covered rock wall after he proposed A young woman rests against her new fiance after their marriage proposal A young couple poses in front of a fern-covered wall after their marriage proposal in Austin, Texas A young couple kisses in front of a wide view of Hamilton Pool and waterfall after their marriage proposal A young couple kisses in front of a waterfall and teal pool after their marriage proposal A young couple poses after their marriage proposal in front of a waterfall in Austin, Texas A young woman looks lovingly up at her new fiance after their marriage proposal at Hamilton Pool A young man and woman pose in front of a waterfall after their marriage proposal A closeup of a young woman checking out her new engagement ring after her proposal in Austin, Texas In front of a beautiful waterfall and green-blue pool, a young couple embrace after their marriage proposal A young woman looks surprised while speaking to her new fiance after he proposed at Hamilton Pool in Austin, Texas A young man in baseball cap and glasses smiles as he embraces his new fiance in front of Hamilton Pool A family poses in front of a beautiful green pool and waterfall in Austin, Texas A young woman, overcome with emotion, embraces her new fiance A young couple embrace after their marriage proposal A young woman covers her mouth in shock after her boyfriend proposes marriage A young woman embraces a family member after her boyfriend proposed at Hamilton Pool in Austin, Texas A very happy young woman looks over her fiance's shoulder after he proposed at Hamilton Pool A young couple embrace directly after their marriage proposal in Austin, Texas Young couple embraces in front of waterfall and green pool after their marriage proposal A young woman passionately kisses her new fiance after he proposes marriage A young woman kisses her fiance after he proposed marriage at Hamilton Pool A young woman embraces her fiance joyously after he proposes marriage at Hamilton Pool Young couple embracing directly after their marriage proposal in Austin, Texas Young man in baseball cap puts an engagement ring on his girlfriend's finger in front of a waterfall in Austin, Texas Young woman begins embracing her fiance while he proposes marriage at Hamilton Pool Young man places engagement ring on his girlfriend's finger during their Hamilton Pool wedding proposal A young man puts an engagement ring on his fiance's finger during their marriage proposal at Hamilton Pool in Austin, Texas In front of a teal natural pool, a disbelieving young woman holds her face while her boyfriend proposes marriage Young man on bended knee holds out ring to his girlfriend while proposing Young couple embrace in front of Hamilton Pool waterfall during marriage proposal Overjoyed young woman holds her fiance's hand during marriage proposal Young couple embracing during marriage proposal in Austin, Texas As her boyfriend proposes marriage, a young woman covers her mouth in disbelief Young woman holds her head in disbelief as her boyfriend proposes on one knee at Hamilton Pool Sporty couple in front of waterfall at Hamilton Pool Young woman smiles joyously during outdoor marriage proposal at Hamilton Pool Young man kneels while proposing to a young woman at Hamilton Pool in Austin, Texas Marriage proposal in front of a waterfall Young man in white shirt and blue shorts proposes to his overjoyed girlfriend in front of a waterfall and turquoise pool Athletic man proposes to his girlfriend on one knee in front of a natural pool in Austin, Texas Young man proposes to his girlfriend in front of a beautiful waterfall in Austin, Texas
