Long Beach Engagement | Christina & Torend

June 9, 2016

Christina and Torend knew from the first day they laid eyes on each other that they were going to get married. The day before meeting Christina, Torend had dreamt of the girl he would marry.  When Christina sat next to Torend on the first day of class she had audibly heard God telling her that he was the one. It’s a fairy tale story that you only hear about in Disney movies and romance novels but it is absolutely their story. God had destined these two to be together and orchestrated their relationship in a way that only God can.

Though they’d only been together a few months before getting engaged God has continuously confirmed their destiny together and they jumped in faith towards love. I got goose pumps hearing them share the details that brought them together and I feel so honored to be photographing their love story. Christina and Torend will be married this summer at the San Moritz Lodge in Lake Arrowhead. I can’t wait to capture your beautiful wedding day.


We began their engagement session at El Dorado Park. The California sun peaked through the tree’s as I captured there special love unfolding.
