As a photographer, one of the pleasures of my job is getting to meet amazing new people. It’s so much fun to get to know a little about each couple, their history and their lives’ work as individuals…as well as their life together. Meera and Steven are exceptional people on their own, and truly a loving and special couple! I had a wonderful time with them during our recent engagement session in Virginia Beach.
These two met in law school, and hit it off quickly at a weekly bar review social gathering. They’ve been together ever since! Three years on, Steven now works for the coast guard. This past Christmas he was supposed to be at sea, but surprised Meera by showing up in Washington state where she was spending time with her family. But Steven’s arrival wasn’t the only surprise in store! He asked Meera to be his wife on Christmas morning! Now that’s a Christmas gift!! It’s clear that these two share something truly special not only with each other, but with each other’s families. I love it when a proposal happens in the midst of family. Such a beautiful thing!
Because of Steven’s work, it felt especially fitting that our session was near the water. Meera was absolutely stunning, with her big smile and her long dark hair. She is so beautiful, I had to ask her family’s background. Her father is from India! As a couple, Meera and Steven are very nice and laid-back. Before our session ended, the three of us had a lovely chat about being in the military. My husband is in the military, so I always appreciate spending time with a couple that shares that connection. Meera and Steven: I wish you all the best and thank you for the good company and conversation!
