Swipe Right for Tacos! UT Austin Engagement Portrait Session
If you can think of a better place for a first date than Torchy's, I will buy you a taco! I don't think that's the line Jay used when he and Prathima matched online. However, things still managed to work out pretty well...
As it would be, Jay became Texas's most eligible bachelor after relocating from New Jersey. In fact, he may have even been known in some circles as "The Lone Star." Prathima was coincidentally a most eligible Austinite and had no idea that she was about to meet the man of her dreams. Then, as fate (or modern algorithms) would have it, the "lone stars aligned" and these two lovely people matched on Tinder! Soon after, they would find out that not only did they love tacos and gelato, but they loved each other so much that they would spend the rest of their lives together.
I had a great time photographing this fun couple in their traditional Indian clothing. We started the engagement portrait session at the UT Austin campus in downtown Austin, Texas. It was a mild summer day, just about 100º F. Prathima and Jay somehow managed to stay "cool" in the heat, but we won't talk about my sweat-soaked shirt! Luckily, the great people at Gelateria Gemelli allowed us to take some lifestyle portraits at their E 6th Street location while we cooled off with some delicious handmade gelato. I hope you enjoy these engagement photos!
