When the co-founder of luxury fashion consignment site SnobSwap gets engaged, you know her outfits are going to kill. With just one week remaining until Emily and Baran exchange their “I do’s”, we got a sneak peek at their romantic San Francisco engagement shoot that was captured by Trynh Photography. Get ready for some serious style envy!
How they met:
Companies usually put their consultants in drab, windowless rooms. In the Fall of 2006, Baran was in one such room on the 43rd floor of the American Express tower in downtown Manhattan. And he’d been there for months, maybe years (like a Vegas casino, you lose track of time in there…). And then one day, in walked this girl from DC and lit up the room.
All hope of Baran getting any work done was gone. Was it her eyes, that smile, those red heels? It was probably all three and more. Emily was new to her project, new to the client and new to New York, so Baran graciously offered to help show her around…
From innocent instant messages (“Hey, where’s the printer?”) to hanging out with groups of colleagues after work, they started to talk, then smile, then laugh. One day at the office, after Emily was accepted to Columbia Business School, she asked if Baran knew the campus and could show her around. Having never been to Columbia, he said “Of course!” and then waited for her to go home before printing out and studying the campus map.
After a few dates, Baran convinced Emily to stop calling him her “coworker” and she progressed to “guy I’m dating” then “boyfriend” and now, thankfully, “fiancé” and soon “hubby.”
