Another eharmony success! – Balboa Park Engagement Photography

I tell ya….. everywhere I turn people that met on eharmony are getting married!  I’ve photographed 10 couples who have met on various online sites.  Mark & Marissa make it 11 and  are my 4th eharmony couple!

I met Marissa and Mark at Marissa’s sister Alisa’s wedding in September.  I remember taking a this photo of them dancing…..

Marissa had been on eharmony all of 2 days when Mark contacted her!  They emailed back and forth for a couple of weeks and decided to meet.  They decided to meet in Coronado, close to where Marissa lived.  They walked along the water and stopped at a particular bench where they sat and talked…. and talked…..

When Mark wanted to ask Marissa to be his wife, he decided to return to where it all started…. that particular bench.  It had been raining all week, and since the weather had finally cleared up, Mark suggested they go on a walk before church.  Marissa didn’t suspect a thing!  He said a few really nice things about her and once they got to THE bench, Mark asked Marissa to marry him.  They never made it to church that day. 🙂  Instead, spending the afternoon celebrating with family.

Mark and Marissa are getting married next month in San Diego and I can’t wait!  I feel so blessed to get to be a part of their day!

Then we went and got some pizza.  But I’m really glad I kept my camera with me.  You never know when you’re going to come across this:
