Cristina + Harim | Long Beach Engagement Session

Cristina and Harim have the most beautiful-est love story ever. <3 Even though they've both been through incredibly difficult circumstances, Cristina’s husband passed away a few years ago, both their lives speak volumes of their joy in Christ. Right now, Harim leads Bible Studies, Cristina is staff at the Women’s Resource Center, and both of them are faithfully serving in the church and the Hispanic community.

I got to meet them a week before for coffee and it was SOOO incredible to hear how God orchestrated their entire love story!!! Haha, in fact, they were so in love, as we were shooting by a chapel, they were joking about going in and just getting the pastor to marry them, then and there! (thankfully, they decided to save that for May).

These guys were so much fun and down for anything. They didn’t even blink when I asked them to re-enact the proposal on the beach, and I’m guessing he got a successful “Yes!”, since the cars driving by suddenly started honking. From everyone’s matching shoes to the love notes in the sand from the boys, this happily ever after is one I could not be more excited for!
