She was working part-time making smoothies. He was working at a movie-rental place (remember those?) Their stores happened to be right around the corner from each other … and from a distance she was scoping him out.
Then a co-worker went in and gave Ben April’s number. And so he called. They went on a date (it was great) and then he went on vacation for a few weeks.
April thought that maybe nothing would happen after that…but Ben came home from his trip with a present. I think it was M&M’s in her favorite color. Something to show her that he had in fact been thinking of her, and that something was going to happen.
And with that these two tattooed kids got together, got engaged, and packed up their lives to follow their dreams in Portland. I was lucky enough to photograph their sweet wedding at Sand Rock Farm in Aptos.
April + Ben – your unwavering trust in me as a photographer was such a gift to me this year, and came at a time when I really needed it. Thank you for being such amazing clients, you made me the luckiest photographer in the world.
