Marisa & Alex
Beach Engagement Session
Our talented Adventure Photos’ photographer, Ivan Castelan, had a wonderful time capturing Marisa and Alex’s engagement session at Dreams Sands Cancun Resort and Spa. These high school sweethearts celebrated the proposal right on the beach at the Dreams Resort in Cancun. It was only fitting that they chose to have their engagement photos taken in the same place. We can’t wait to share their adorable love story with you all as they plan in excitement for their big day.
How did you meet?
Our moms have worked at the same company since we were born. We’re the same age and went to high school together, but we didn’t meet until the end of our sophomore year. We both went to the same basketball game and stood next to each other. We went to homecoming junior year and have been together ever since!
What is your favorite thing about your partner?
Alex: The way she treats me, her smile, her personality.
Marisa: He’s my best friend and I can be my true authentic self around him. He makes me feel special every day.
What is your favorite style of date night?
We love to order food and watch reality tv.
What was the proposal like? Was it a surprise? Who planned it?
We got engaged at the Dreams Sands right under the canopy! Marisa’s mom, dad, and sister were there as well as her grandparents. The only people who knew the proposal was happening were Alex and Marisa’s dad. After dinner we all lined up to take a “family photo” and Alex got down on one knee and proposed. It was a huge surprise and such a special moment.
What part of wedding planning are you most looking forward to?
We are looking forward to planning the reception! It will be so fun to pick out the flowers, decorations, food, and drinks!
What drew you to choosing Adventure Photos to photograph your engagement?
Since we got engaged at the Dreams Sands, we wanted to capture and remember where we were at during this huge life event.
What was your experience like working with your Adventure Photos photographer?
Ivan Castelan was our photographer and made the entire process fun, quick, and easy for us. He had our pictures taken and returned to us in under 24 hours.
Do you have a favorite photograph? What makes it so special?
It’s hard to choose our favorite, but this photo really captures our personalities and love for each other. It makes us smile every time we see it.
