Devon & Christian’s Beautiful Blacks Beach Engagement Session

Devon and Christian are pretty badass, to say the least. This engagement session consisted of a hike, repelling down a rope, wearing a dress in the mud (for Devon), exploring cliffs, caves and caverns, and playing in the ocean. The light at the end was other worldly. Magical! Epic! And made for the most stunning picture of these two glowing souls. They were open and willing and just down for anything! Also, on a personal note, I have always wanted to hike Ho Chi Min trail by Blacks Beach in La Jolla, and these two finally made that happen for me. 

They met five years ago through a dating app, and although it started not too serious, Devon knew this marriage was bound to happen. And the rest, as they say, is history! And boy am I glad they swiped right that day. In a few months they will be getting married in San Clemente and its fair to say that all three of us can’t wait for that special day. And a side note to Covid- they are working so hard to plan this day during such a strange time (no thanks to you) so don’t mess this one up for us!

Oh, and happy new year to all you beautiful people. Sending love and light!
