ARVIND & KARISA




First of all, my friend Karisa, who I grew up with, is the sweetest (and smartest) girl in the world! As the three of us were driving around downtown I heard the scoop on their meeting, and what a story these two have! Without going into too much detail - I'll leave the story for them to tell - the two met in India and started dating the day before Karisa moved back to the states. For the past year they have kept up their relationship long distance and just recently became engaged when Arvind came to visit Karisa. I had the privilege of spending some of their precious moments together with them! (they drove 2 hours to take some photographs with me!) Arvind left the next day for India and they are prepared to spend another year apart until the big day! You know that your love and commitment is far reaching when faced with what they have been through. Karisa, born and raised in California is planning on spending the rest of her life in India serving on the mission field with Arvind. Such an awesome story, I am so excited for them! I hope you can see the sweetness of their love in these photographs.


































































I know this might seem like a normal engagement session... but you just can't underestimate the things you'll do when it's HOT!
