Newport Beach Engagement Photography
This adorable couple was referred to us by a past bride and groom! Nik and Santina were a little nervous about their Newport Beach engagement photography session (Little Corona Beach in CDM) but they quickly warmed up after the first couple photos. By the time we finished their Newport Beach Engagement Photography session, we felt like old friends. 🙂
Little Corona Beach has always been a favorite of ours. We even had our own engagement/wedding photos done here at this same location! We are excited to celebrate with them at Occasions in Laguna Beach later this year. Check back this summer for their wedding photos!
How did you two meet?
We met, like many people these days, on the world wide web through Match.com in July 2016. We both liked what we saw so we started chatting. The texting was nonstop for two weeks. With our busy schedules we had a tough time finding the time to meet up. We found an hour on a Friday when Nik was heading home from vacation and I was heading out on vacation! We met up for an hour for a beer and the sparks flew As soon as I was back, we went on our first real date where the food was pricey and tasteless but the conversation was great! We hung out for the next five days in a row and knew we had something special.
On Wednesday August 30, 2017 Nik surprised me by taking me to a place on my bucket list called Nurtured by Nature. It’s an animal sanctuary where you can meet and pet exotic animals, but most importantly you can swim with otters! We spent the day there and I was on cloud 9 seeing all the amazing animals and hanging out in the pool for an hour with otters. When we got home that afternoon I opened up the front door and there were balloons and rose petals everywhere. The balloons spelled out WILL YOU MARRY ME… I turned around and Nik was down on one knee with the ring in hand (I said yes).
