Andrew + Nuvia 1000 Steps Beach Playful Engagement: Laguna Beach Engagement

This Laguna Beach engagement session with Andrew and Nuvia was one for books.  Andrew and Nuvia are high school sweethearts! Nuvia said she knew from the moment Andrew told her I love you she was going to marry Andrew and now her dream is becoming a reality. Talk about making your heart skip a beat. Andrew joined the Army in November 2017 and since these two have had to overcome the challenges of a long distance relationship with Nuvia still in California and Andrew in Georgia.

During their Laguna Beach Engagement, Nuvia told me that Andrew proposed in May when she went to visit him in Georgia.  We decided on a Laguna Beach Engagement because they’ve shared many memories at 1000 Steps Beach in Laguna Beach! Watching Andrew and Nuvia interact with one another was something out of a romance novel! Their love and passion for one another just radiates. Andrew was only on leave for a short week so we had no time to waste when planning their Laguna Beach Engagement session. Andrew could not keep his hands off of Nuvia and went into protector mode as waves almost took us out. It was apparent that Andrew and Nuvia were created for each other.

While planning their Laguna Beach Engagement session, I asked Nuvia if she had any specific expectations for their engagement session. Nuvia told me that they wanted “beautiful genuine pictures that captures our love” and I think we achieved just that. Andrew and Nuvia were incredibly playful during our Laguna Beach Engagement. They weren’t afraid to get silly. They embraced the waves crashing into them. The fact that we were on a crowded beach did not phase them one bit. When I look at Andrew and Nuvia’s Laguna Beach Engagement session, I see their love. I see their playful, caring, and loving souls.  This is exactly what I strive for when capturing couples. I am glad that they entrusted me and took time out of their hectic schedules to soak in each other.
