Romantic Lady Bird Lake Engagement Shoot in Austin, Texas
Everyone loves a good engagement story. It’s the first question a person asks when they find out you’re getting married – “How did he propose?!” The back story, the anticipation, the romance, the excitement – it’s all part of a couple’s story, and hearing these stories never gets old to me.
I had the privilege of doing a Lady Bird Lake Engagement Shoot in Austin, Texas for Nina and Connor. We also took some photos on Rainey Street and I loved getting to hear their story – complete with Little Lucy’s donuts.
A hometown engagement in Lake Tahoe
They met at a work conference while they were living in two different cities. Connor was planning to move out to Chicago where Nina was living and they have been together ever since. Eventually, the time came when Connor was going to propose. The couple flew out to Nina’s hometown in California for a family event in October 2019. They took a day trip to Lake Tahoe with some close friends, one of whom was a photographer. He mentioned that he needed to quickly stop at the lake to take some photos. They all piled out of the car and walked to the dock where, much to Nina’s surprise, Connor asked her to marry him! They celebrated by having lunch with their friends in Tahoe. After lunch, they headed back to Nina’s parent’s house where Connor had planned a surprise party with fifty of their friends and family to celebrate their engagement!
I asked them what makes their relationship so special. Nina responded, “We spend almost 24/7 with each other… We love all of the time we have together and really love cooking, going for walks, and hanging out in our home.” These two lovebirds are so excited to be planning their wedding and are looking forward to celebrating their love with their closest friends and family.

Before you jump into the photos, check out what this couple had to say about working with me:
“Working with Nikk was the best decision we made for our engagement and wedding photos! We hired Nikk Nguyen after seeing him shoot our friend’s wedding where the photo’s turned out impeccable. We worked with Nikk for our engagement shoot where he scouted out multiple locations throughout Austin and made the photos a breeze! He made us super comfortable and was so quick, which we appreciated. We knew we had to hire Nikk for our wedding after seeing the incredible engagement photos he took for us. Our wedding gallery was delivered within 3 weeks, earlier than the agreed upon timeframe which was an awesome surprise and the photos are absolutely magical. Our family and friends cannot stop raving about how amazing Nikk was. On the day of the wedding Nikk was calm, cool, and collected and made taking a bunch of photos a breeze for us. We couldn’t even tell he was there but he delivered the most beautiful wedding gallery I’ve ever seen! We are incredibly grateful to Nikk for capturing the best day of our lives so perfectly. You will not regret hiring him!”
