When Juderka and Eddie met through an online Christian community, they shared a strong dedication to their faith, but neither was instantly sold on the other romantically. Eddie, based in San Diego and contemplating on relocating cities, had a lot of qualifiers for his ideal partner. Juderka, based in Miami, frankly didn't know if Eddie was 'serious' about pursuing a relationship, so much that when he asked her to coffee when he was in town, she didn't know that he was not only very interested in meeting up, but that this would be a date!

When they eventually met face to face, Eddie was completely smitten upon meeting Juderka: she was gorgeous, ambitious, and independent, and he knew from the beginning that she was the one! Juderka soon learned that Eddie was in fact serious, so cross country trips and Facetime bible studies ensued, followed by an engagement on Coronado Beach!

With both of them living near an ocean, a beachside engagement was the best backdrop for them! With hair and makeup done by the amazing Cindy Tran of Noire Beaute, Juderka and Eddie laughed, cuddled, and even danced during their session, which had me enjoy every single moment I photographed them!

Juderka, I knew from our first conversation that I loved your infectious, positive energy! Eddie, who knew that becoming homies in college would lead us to reunite to photograph your engagement! I adore you both! -Evelyn
