whitney + drew’s US Naval Training Station portraits | liberty station, point loma

couple kisses above their dog for their san diego pet portraits at their engagement

Hooray for Whitney and Drew!!
Been looking forward to spending time with these two for quite some time. They are SO. MUCH. FUN.!!
Since Drew is in the Navy, we all agreed that Liberty Station’s historical US Naval Training Station would be perfect for their engagement portraits. And of course, it’s a dog-friendly spot in town too, so lots of opportunities for Sandie to come along for the family fun too!navy couple with their little dog at liberty station san diego pet portraits navy couple with their little dog at liberty station san diego pet portraits

These two are such jokesters with each other and they kept me incredibly entertained! I like to be entertained. Like a lot. couple laughs together with their dog at liberty station san diego engagementcouple laughs together in sunlight at liberty station san diego engagement pet portraitsYeah, Sandie…I’m still here.

But first—THIS. Seriously. Teeheeeeeeeee!! navy couple playful with each other on the beach of coronado island at the ferry landingHilarious and also deep-running. Being around these two, you wonder if they’ve been together for a few months or a few decades. They’ve just got that way about them where they are so playful and fun with each other, but have a much, much deeper connection that usually only comes time under your belt together.  navy couple playful with each other on the beach of coronado island at the ferry landingGAHHHHHHH!!navy couple playful with each other on the beach of coronado island at the ferry landingnavy couple playful with each other on the beach of coronado island at the ferry landingAnd I couldn’t hear what Drew whispered in Whitney’s ear, but it was obviously GOOD. navy couple playful with each other on the beach of coronado island at the ferry landingnavy couple playful with each other on the beach of coronado island at the ferry landingSo much fun together! navy couple playful with each other on the beach of coronado island at the ferry landingThis one GETS ME.
