Livia & Mark | Engaged

Livia, originally from Brazil, first met Mark online, through match.com.  The two started chatting online then decided to meet up in person for coffee at Starbucks.  Livia, being ever so prudent and cautious, talked her friend into coming along.  The two agreed to a two-step process.  First, see if Mark looks like his profile photo.  If not, just leave.  If he does, then the friend can leave while Livia stays to chat with him & make sure he's not psycho.  The two agreed that if Livia didn't check in within two hours, her friend would call the police.  Pronto.

Turns out, Livia thought Mark was even more handsome than his profile photo.  She stayed to chat and discovered he was actually quite sweet.  Livia was charmed right from the start.  They hit it off so well, they decided to turn the coffee date into a movie date and catch a show together.  Of course, Livia turned off her cell phone while in the theater only to be greeted three hours later with countless missed calls and worried texts from her friend!  Luckily, the police were never called.

Livia & Mark dated for nine months before the long distance commute from the north bay to the peninsula got the best of them.  They decided to end the relationship but still keep in touch.  Throughout those long & lonely months, Livia & Mark never stopped missing each other, sweetly teasing each other, or loving each other.  After nine months apart, they couldn't stand it any longer.  They were meant to be together and it just couldn't be denied anymore.

Two and a half years later, Livia & Mark elebrated their renewed commitment to one another with a lovely engagement session at Baker Beach.  After a week of full sunshine, we were greeted that evening with fog, wind, and chilly temperatures but you'd never guess it by the warmth shared between Livia & Mark.
