Larissa + Azat // Mueller Lake Park Engagement
I met Larissa through Bossbabes ATX and I later interviewed her for my Latinx Voices project. She's an artist and illustrator in Austin, she teaches, and she also does murals around the city. She recently did a really cool one downtown for Mexi-Arte and she's working up a new one now.
This year, she and Azat got engaged. I was super excited for her. About a month ago, she let me know they wanted engagement photos and were thinking about Mueller Lake Park east of downtown Austin because that's where Azat proposed to her.
So that's where we went! It's super family-friendly and an easy place to go take family for a walk, especially little kids and older family members. There are beautiful lake views and you can walk all the way around the lake.
Larissa and Azat are really into roller skating, so they were hoping to do some roller skating photos. I've never taken photos of people roller skating so I was like do I need to be on roller skates?! I don't know!
We did those photos first and I guess roller skating while wearing a dress isn't super easy especially when going downhill, so even though we did get a few photos of them looking great on roller skates, Larissa took a painful tumble and scabbed her knee. Luckily, Azat flew on his roller skates to get napkins and fixed up her knee. I took photos of it and we laughed it off and kept going.
Then we walked around and went over to the lake. We got some photos on the huge stairs to the lake where you can just sit, relax, and look over the water.
Being sort of lovey-dovey with someone taking your picture in public is super hard. After we got going, Larissa and Azat made it look easy and we got some really great photos.
They're getting married this fall at Mercury Hall, and I'm so excited for them. Scroll down to look through some photos of this fun shoot!
