Ben & Marie
Posted on October 9, 2013
To find the one that compliments you, that loves what you love, that wants to walk alongside you in life. And climb rocks.
Ben & Marie are an incredibly active couple. Besides climbing, they are bikers, runners and avid and amazing ultimate frisbee champions. Capturing the essence of my couples is always my goal, but it gets tricky sometimes…although I’m always willing to go to great lengths to do it. We actually hadn’t solidified all the plans, but when they both got out their climbing shoes at the base of the trail to Forbidden Drive in the Wissahickon woods in Philadelphia, I knew we were off to a good start. Ben & Marie are both from Philadelphia area, so shooting in a place that they love and have spent time rolling over the trail or bouldering the rocks was a great choice, not to mention absolutely beautiful.
These two are such a great match, and I’m so excited to be shooting their wedding in two weeks at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. It’s only fitting that people who love to climb rocks would want to throw a big party with the dinosaurs.
