Romantic proposal at Das Peach Haus in Fredericksburg, Texas

Surprise Proposal at Das Peach Haus

I recently had the honor of photographing a beautiful proposal at Das Peach House in Fredericksburg, Texas, and it was a dream. 

Daniel and Colette met online a little over two years ago and immediately hit it off—they even closed down the restaurant on their first date because they couldn’t stop talking. He knew instantly that there was a connection between them, and their love has continued to grow ever since. 

Before The Proposal

Daniel inquired via my website in mid-April and told me he wanted to propose within the next month or so, so we got to work right away! They’re both from the area surrounding Magnolia, Texas, so he knew that he wanted to travel in and spend the weekend celebrating their engagement. 

He had originally planned to propose to Colette at Muleshoe Bend amongst the Texas bluebonnets, but unfortunately, they were no longer in bloom. I sent him a list of alternative proposal spots around Austin, Texas to ensure he had a variety of stunning options. After consulting with Colette’s mother and friends, he settled on a romantic waterfront setting at Das Peach House, which couldn’t have gone more perfectly! 

To get the best photos possible, I sent Daniel clear directions telling him exactly where to go once he arrived at Das Peach House. This not only helped ease some nerves because he knew what to expect once he arrived, but he also knew he had a support person to walk him through the entire surprise. Once he was 100% confident in the plan he chose the date! 

The Proposal

Daniel and Colette arrived in Fredericksburg for their weekend getaway, and on April 26th, he put his proposal plan in motion! They left their cozy cabin, which was a 10-minute drive from the venue, and headed for the gorgeous dock where the surprise took place. 

Once they got there, Daniel took her hand and led her down to the water through a beautiful path of trees and greenery. He got down on one knee on the dock and popped the question—Colette was emotional as soon as she realized that Daniel was asking for her hand in marriage and the happy tears started flowing! She, of course, said YES and slipped her brand-new engagement ring onto her finger.

To celebrate and preserve their proposal forever, I stayed to do a mini photoshoot with the happy couple. These photos are so important because they capture the couple’s joy and true in-the-moment emotions about spending the rest of their lives together.

During our mini-session, I guided Daniel and Colette through different poses so they felt comfortable and confident in front of the camera. We used a few areas around Das Peach House so they would have a variety of backgrounds and could enjoy the entire venue. 

I’m so blessed to be able to document such emotional and special moments in my clients’ lives and truly love what I do.
