Leslie + Emilio | Engagement Session in Austin, Texas

When Leslie and Emilio went on their first date, Leslie wondered if it was actually a date at all! The two met at an event for the Hispanic Business Student Association at UT in Austin, and Emilio asked Leslie to get coffee together at the Spider House. While she spruced herself up accordingly, Emilio was sick with an awful cough and was up at campus all night studying for an exam. He went on their date in the most casual of clothes, and to top it off, his truck was in the repair shop, so Leslie had to pick him up. (It should be noted that Emilio can certainly clean up nicely! I was taking notes for my husband on where he got his European-style clothes! Leslie brought the cutest dresses she rented from Rent the Runway!)

While Leslie was wondering if she was about to be friend-zoned, once their conversation at the Spider House began, the couple felt the sparks fly. The pair became completely enthralled with each other as they discussed their deepest hopes and wishes for their lives. At the end of the date, Emilio asked if Leslie would go on a second date, which solidified to Leslie, that what they had, just in fact, was a date!

For their engagement session, we headed to the Spider House and the exact booth where they had their first date. Leslie sat in her spot, and Emilio sat in his. The two recalled, with a sparkle in their eyes, how Emilio had pneumonia and felt terrible, and how their conversation at the coffee shop began a lifetime of memories.

In an amazing coincidence, Leslie and Emilio are my second couple to get engaged at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art! While I have not been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of my absolute favorite places in the world is the Tate Modern Museum in London. I LOVE that my couples also adore art! At the museum, Leslie requested that they head to the terrace outside for a view of the city. Once outside, Emilio took Leslie’s hands in his own and asked her to marry him. A security guard nearby took a photo for the couple, tears in his eyes.

For their engagement session, we headed to the greenbelt, the capitol, and Spider House coffee shop. It was a trip down memory lane for Leslie and Emilio. Their conversation at the coffee shop began the journey of a lifetime: one that involved a move to New York and the welcoming of their precious daughter, Mila. The pair will wed at Ma Maison in the spring. Leslie and Emilio, thank you so much for having me capture your engagement session! I can’t wait for your gorgeous wedding day this spring!
