How is it possible that I get to call this a job? Not only do I get a back stage pass to gorgeous weddings of all kinds, but I get to be sneaky and photograph proposals from a front row seat! I love proposals! What’s better than capturing such a special moment in a couple’s love story? It’s such a surreal moment that if you don’t have pictures of it, it’s so easy for it all to become a blur. So, I’m so thrilled that I got to capture the moment Olivia said, “yes!” when Brodie proposed on the canal walk in Indianapolis.
Take a Romantic Stroll on the Indianapolis Canal Walk
Directions and parking
The Indianapolis Canal Walk is a three mile loop with several romantic nooks and crannies to ask your significant other the biggest question you may ever ask. During the day, the Canal Walk is filled with a variety of people, from runners and walkers, to bikers. As the evening sets in, the sunset is gorgeous on the horizon. Once it has set, the street and accent lighting really bring this area to life. You can walk the loop ahead of time to pick the perfect spot, or you and your soon-to-be fiancé can just go for a walk and you can get on bended knee when the moment feels right. From the bridges to benches overlooking fountains and the cityscape, you have so many options. Once your significant other says yes, celebrate (and warm up) at Burgerhaus, a restaurant on the north side of the Canal Walk.
