How We Met
Austin and I met when we were 18 in Santa Barbara bother attending Santa Barbara City College(2013). I had the urge to follow my passion for film and moved to LA and Austin wanted to follow his dream to pursue country music and moved to Nashville. We had to do the long distance for a few years and then I finally moved to Nashville in May 2017!
How They Asked
Austin’s career has really been a blessing and this year he got asked to perform on the main stage at Country Thunder in Arizona. He played at 3:30 pm on Saturday. That night Dierks Bentley has him back out on stage to sing a duet, his first hit song Come a Little Closer!
I am a professional videographer and so it is so fun when I get to go on the road with Austin because our jobs get to overlap! We had learned that Dierks was going to have Austin out to do a duet, and shotgun a beer, a few hours before Dierks went on. Naturally, we were all super excited and his manager told me that they had got it cleared through Dierks ‘ team to have my film, but that they were strict and to only go where the stage manager told me I could be.
Midway through the song, the stage manager told me I could go out on the catwalk and film. I was so excited because I knew it would be such a sick shot! All the sudden Austin and Dierks are trying to get my attention…Dierks grabbed the camera and filmed the rest. I’m still on cloud 10000000. I can’t believe it. I love Austin so much and can not wait to marry him!
