It was Texas meets New York, when Emma and Ben spied each other’s cute faces on Tinder! Emma is a Texas girl through and through. She grew up in San Antonio and spent her college days at St. Edward’s University walking down to South Congress in the heart of Austin. Ben, on the other hand, was raised in New York, and when he had the opportunity to live and work in Austin, he jumped at the chance!
Y’all. Ben is apparently an undercover cowboy!!! After they had been dating a few months, Ben decided in his heart he want to ride a bull—and not one of the mechanical variety! Emma brought her dad along with her (for moral support in case Ben, ummmmm, didn’t quite make it!), and she watched him ride that bull!!! If that is not true love and devotion, I don’t know what is!
Emma and Ben’s first date was a little more low key than a bull ride. They ate at Indian food at Teji’s on Guadalupe near the UT campus. They spent hours and hours walking and chatting, but both found each other a bit hard to read! Hence, their relationship had a bit of a slower start. However, once they opened up a bit, they bonded over their love for travel and dogs!! (They own three!)
Emma seems to have the coolest job EVERRRR because she gets to travel all around the world and have company get-togethers in …Ibiza! I was super excited she had traveled to Belfast—which is twenty minutes from my husband’s hometown.
Since their romance played out in the city of Austin, they wanted to incorporate some Austin hot spots into their engagement session. We met bright and early, and these cuties laughed and snuggled on each other! I can’t wait for their wedding at Vista West Ranch next year!!!
