Back in August, we went to Lisa and Dominic’s home to shoot their engagement photos. They recently purchased their first home, so that made the pictures all the more special and significant.
Getting Started in the Big Apple
Lisa and Dominic initially met in New York City around six years ago at a mutual friend’s Super Bowl party, despite neither of them being big sports people. However, things didn’t start off right then for them. About a year later, they ended up hanging out and attending a music show together which is when their relationship truly began. Relatively new to the Austin area, they went back to NYC for an Elton John concert in February 2022. While they were at Lisa’s favorite Greek restaurant, Souvlaki GR, Dom surprised her with a proposal! Greece holds special significance for the couple as it was their first major trip together, and it made the proposal even more intimate and memorable.
Any Adventure, Always Together
"We are each other’s best friend."
Lisa and Dominic’s relationship has a strong foundation, and they love spending time together; whether it’s out on an adventure to the nearby Texas Hill Country or a night in watching reality tv (they are big fans of Love Island), they are most content being together. They also enjoy cooking together, exploring new restaurants and local attractions, and experiencing everything that Austin has to offer. Lisa likes to plan, and Dom is always ready for another adventure with her. They had plans to elope in August with their closest friends and family to put a formal start on the rest of their lives together.
