Natasha & Steve   ♥   San Diego, USA

Today’s long distance love story is an incredible ‘chance of fate’ fairytale! Having met at University in Ohio whilst Natasha enjoyed a semester there from her own UK Uni, this cute couple were initially just friends and after that one term they didn’t see each other again for years.

 

A chance meeting brought them together after 13 years apart and as soon as they met up again there was no doubt in their minds that they were meant to be together. By this time in their lives they were living on other sides of the globe from each other but undeterred they kept their love alive over the long distance that stood between them.

 

Steve proposed and of course Natatsha said “Yes!” and so they enjoyed a whirlwind wedding along with this engagement shoot session by the beach in sunny San Diego – one of their favourite places in the world – before starting a new life together in the US.

“Natasha and Steve met as 19 year olds when Natasha was studying abroad in Ohio from her English University. They became friends in Ohio, but never dated each other.”

 

“In the 13 years that followed Natasha emigrated to Australia and Steve joined the US navy based out of San Diego. While Natasha was on a vacation with her parents two years ago, they met up again after 13 years and from that moment they knew they wanted to be together and continued a long distance relationship between Sydney Australia and LA for a year and a half!”

“In the year and a half, Steve and Natasha got engaged and Natasha applied to become a US citizen. A stipulation of Natasha’s US visa meant they had to get married within 90 days of her arriving to the US. They loved San Diego County so much they decided to have their destination wedding in California.”

“After their marriage, Steve and Natasha wanted to let everything play out traditionally, so that’s where their lovely engagement photos fell into place!”

 

“We picked La Jolla in San Diego because of its incredible view points and awesome location and once Steve and Natasha got comfortable in front of the camera they were naturals!”
