Austin Proposals

Austin Vivid Photography had the fantastic honor of doing another surprise proposal shoot, this time at the beautiful Mt. Bonnell.

There were tears, there was laughing, and there was a very excited YES!

  1. A beautiful cool picture! I love it all! There is a little bit of fading in the corners & top corners of this glorious picture! 🙂

  2. Beautiful picture!
    Only a technical question: the colors on the right are stronger than the colors on the left. Do you do some color changes on pc?

    • Thanks for the lovely compliment!
      I didn’t do anything with the colors during post processing in this photograph. It was a fairly hazy day so the Pennybacker bridge in the distance just isn’t as vivid. I was just having some fun with my camera and tried making the colors a little punchy in camera using one of it’s fun image modes. Since it was a proposal shoot I of course showed up a bit early with my assistant in case the couple showed up earlier than planned. I had some time to kill so I took the opportunity to play with the camera modes I never use. Sometimes it is fun taking it out of Manual or Aperture mode! I think as photographers we forget these thing can do things other than manual mode. I know I do anyways.

  5. Nice. I have some shots at Mt Bonnell I took in the 90s before they put up all those crazy iron bars and barricades. You used to be able to crawl up and down the cliffs. 😦 But you managed to get a great shot.

    • Have you been up there lately? They just put bars around the stone at the top with the engraving on it. Can you believe that?! It’s pretty sad looking. I’m guessing to stop people from putting graffiti on it but not sure. I really hope that’s temporary.
      I would love to see some shots on your site if your game!

      • Gosh, it’s been about 3 yrs I guess. My Bonnell shots aren’t in your league (and mostly have me or ex-boyfriends in them LOL), but I do have one cool one of me, with the houses/swimming pools gleaming in the sun below me. But still it’s me so it will seem too self-centered. That’s a shame what you say about the bars. What must be going on up there to get the city’s panties in such a bunch to do such a thing?
