San Antonio Engagement Photographer – Downtown River Walk

When suggesting the San Antonio River Walk as an engagement photography location, I am often met with a hesitant response.  The image most people visualize is the crowded narrow walkway in the heart of the tourist attraction.  I typically have to paint the picture of a much more laid back and intimate location away from the crowds.  Just outside the main River Walk area is a more picturesque and quaint trail, that offers an intimate atmosphere.

Rebecca and Cody were up for the adventure, and trusted we would get some great photos for their engagement session.  I always get excited when a local couple experiences new locations and sites they have not encountered before.  The diversity and architecture of downtown allows for a wide range of backdrops, which Rebecca and Cody loved.

San Antonio photo of the week – Jessica and Carl

This week’s photo is one from Jessica and Carl’s engagement session.  Have I told yall how much I enjoy photographing downtown San Antonio?  Downtown offers an absolute unending variety of locations, but there are a few that pull me back due to the unique style and allure of the setting.  This red brick tunnel along the Riverwalk is one such spot.

I first used the tunnel for Kate and Luke’s engagement photos in December 2010 and was thrilled with the results.  For Jessica and Carl we happened to be in the same area and our route brought us along some of the same spots including the tunnel.  It is one of those locations that is so unique to the surrounding architecture yet blends so well with the Riverwalk that you have to stop and admire the area.  I have to stop and capture the moment, and it was such a cute one at that.
