Marissa and Ben first crossed paths in high school when Marissa would come over to the Van Dehy's to hang out with Ben's little brother and swimming buddy. Ben took notice of Marissa but didn't ask her out until they had gone their separate ways and were off to different colleges. When Ben finally asked Marissa out, Marissa didn't want to drive all the way to Boulder for a date. But then she decided that maybe something good could come from this...
It's been seven years and I'll bet Marissa is glad she said yes to that date with Ben! Marissa and Ben married in July of 2011 and could not be more in love.
I feel so honored to have had the opportunity to photograph their love. And I'm also happy Marissa and Ben went along with my silly props and ideas :)
Here's to many more happy years! Congratulations Marissa and Ben.
