Austin + Bailey’s Anakeesta Proposal in Gatlinburg, TN

This was by far, a very different proposal.

Austin had the day all planned out and we were supposed to meet at The Gatlinburg Sky Bridge for him to propose to his girlfriend. I am not exactly sure what happened but she ended up finding out about the surprise from family.

Last-minute, we changed locations. Even though she knew he was going to ask, he still tried to throw her off and asked her to marry him at the Anakeesta truck that was parked down at the street. I wasn’t there to capture the actual moment, but she was still excited.

When they arrived at the top to meet me, they just came right up to me. I could tell they were upset about how the day went, but I am so glad Austin went on with the photos. Life and marriage never go how we plan. I know these two will tell this story and just laugh. All that matters is their life will be starting together.


I photographed the two of them with that gorgeous rock on her hand and then we left together and I got some photos of them where it happened. Congratulations you guys!!!
