We offer a hidden marriage proposal photographer experience in the Austin, Texas area for your wedding proposal. We make sure you not only get the best proposal images before, during, and after you’ve popped the question, but we make sure that the experience is fun and easy for both of you.
We will secretly follow the two of you before you propose, or wait for you, hidden at the prearranged spot, and capture the moment as you ask your loves hand in marriage.
Don’t let this once-in-a-lifetime-moment slip away. We will photograph your partner’s surprise as you propose, and after your proposal, we will join you and your fiancé for additional photos of just the two of you.
Their work speaks for itself. Mercedes and Jesse are so talented and they are down to earth human beings. I’m so glad I chose them to capture our proposal. They are so professional and understanding of every situation. They give you the pictures right on time not a day late. We were so happy with the way our pictures came out and everyone loved them! You will never go wrong with choosing them to capture your special moments. We highly recommend these talented folks to everyone!
Each proposal starts with a consultation over the phone, getting details of how you want things to go. We can make suggestions for some pretty awesome locations that will make the moment even more special. Do you have a unique location already picked out? We get in place early and blend in with the other couples in the area.
No need to stress over it: we’ll help you plan it out and make sure that your experience—and the photographs—are fantastic.
Since we plan it all in advance, you’ll know where and when to get down on your knee to ask her The Question. You won’t know we’re there until just after it happens, but we’ll be in place to make sure that we capture her reactions throughout. We try to stay ninja for as long as necessary!
After you all have time to bask in the glow of being just engaged, we’ll make time for portraits of you both plus some epic ring shots. You’ll have some images ready ASAP so you can share the news with your friends and family.

Working with Mercedes and Jesse was a wonderful experience from start to end. They truly care about making it a personal and special experience. They are easy to work with and very talented! I would recommend them to anyone for engagement photos.

Pratik and Katyayani at the Zilker Botanical Garden in Austin, Texas
Katyayani’s reactions were just precious. She was brought to tears right away! But let me backtrack a little. Pratik emailed me about three weeks before he planned to propose to Katyayani. That was plenty of time to be able to put together a plan for the event as well as a good plan B. Good thing, too. A few days before the big date, the forecast showed a lot of rain was to come. Guys: a solid plan B is very important to have!
Carl and Heather at the Driskill Hotel in Austin, Texas
A proposal and engagement session at the historic Driskill Hotel in Austin, TX. There was so much planning that went into Carl’s proposal to Heather. Carl confessed to being a creative soul, and he went all out for Heather. Before the big day, he carefully crafted an album full of great moments they shared together. Besides that, he put together a “menu,” listing the same phrase, “will you marry me,” in different languages.
Thomas and Celia at the Texas State Capital building in Austin, Texas
Texas State Capitol provides a backdrop for a more meaningful, personal proposal in Austin. We have photographed so many proposals and one thing tends to be common: they happen in places that are very personal to the couple. It’s just the thing when you’re about to do something that’s such a major milestone in your lives together.
Bret and Katy in Austin, Texas
We worked together with Bret to make sure that we had a plan in place, even accounting for the rain that threatened things (it didn’t come until much later). Bret knew were Jesse and I would be: out in the open, just a couple hanging out on a weekend morning. Cameras were hidden until Bret got on his knee and asked Katy The Question.
