Stephanie and Sam Poueu from NBC's The Biggest Loser Engagement Photos
For those who do not know the story about Stephanie and Sam, they met on the hit NBC TV show, The Biggest Loser, where they lost a combined total of 241 pounds. Sam proposed on the show, and soon after they contacted us to photograph their wedding. A couple months later Sam was in a horrific accident in which he fell from a 4-story building in which he suffered a pelvic injury, torn ligaments, a punctured lung and a broken leg. It is a miracle that he survived. In his words, Stephanie and his love for Stephanie are what gave him the strength to fight, heal and survive. It is almost incomprehensible when you think about it. Allison and I are so happy for Sam and Stephanie and their friends and families that he has survived and recovered!! It is such an incredible story.
Due to the accident we were not able to photograph their engagement, until the night before their wedding. These images were taken on the streets of San Francisco. Steph and Sam: we love you! Thanks for the inspiration and the good times!
