Cherie & Allen | A Romantic Engagement Session; Crystal Pier, Pacific Beach, California

Cherie & Allen | A Timeless Love Story

I first heard about the beautiful history between these two over coffee this past summer. I was awestruck at their miraculous story of perseverance together through life's hard times. Getting to witness the depth of their love for each other was what photographer dreams are made of. After a severe knee injury, Allen was told that he would never walk again; and after months of physical therapy and the with the love, encouragement & belief of the love of his life Cherie, he accomplished the impossible & began walking again without any assistance. Knowing already that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with no one else - Allen asked Cherie to marry him & now they are ready for this next chapter of their lives. 

I soon realized while spending time with them that not only are they inspiring; but they are both so down to earth and as inclusive as people come. There were may times throughout our session together that we talked about life beyond the session. Allen & Cherie both insisted we set up a time to get our families together for a BBQ. I am so honored that they have chosen me to capture their wedding day in the upcoming year and SO thankful that not only do I have two amazing clients - but I have gained two incredible friends. I love my job <3

Enjoy a little sneak peek into their beautiful world.
