Its true when they say couples who have fun together, stay together! Christina and PJ first met through mutual friends after PJ moved back to Arizona to attend Arizona State University for a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry when his military service in Iraq had come to an end. The couple was enjoying their time while having fun with their group of friends at Country Thunder in Florence, Arizona, one of Arizona’s biggest music festivals. PJ enjoyed his time with Christina so much that he wasn’t ready for the fun to stop, so he made the bold move by asking Christina on their first official date to Downtown Phoenix for dinner. After they fell in love, the couple decided it was time to take it to the next level and leave their single lives behind for good! PJ and Christina moved in together when they purchased their first home in Chandler, Arizona in November 2015 with a furry new addition to their family…a Golden Retriever named Lexi!
After approximately two years of happiness had passed, PJ planned to propose to Christina in Europe during their family vacation right in front of the castles that had inspired the stories of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, which made for the most perfect ending to their modern fairytale. When they returned home, the planning immediately began! Their Payson Arizona engagement session was captured by StepOnMe Photography and featured the couple’s adorable pup! Christina and PJ plan to tie the knot in early 2019 with StepOnMe Photography on hand to document every moment!
