Molly & Ben

She thought he was older, he thought she was much younger. They both thought that they were just in it for the workout, but naturally… they fell for each other one crossfit session after the other. Molly is such a bright person, with so much passion and drive. She is a total boss on the daily, AND in the kitchen. It’s no surprise that Ben finds her to be the most amazing thing in his life. I met Molly a few years back through a mutual friend, it didn’t take me long to realize that she was someone I wanted in my circle. I remember her telling me when she first started dating Ben that she was surprised at how easily her heart opened up to him. Although I haven’t known Ben as long, I knew right away that he was an amazing compliment to Molly.

When we got together for their engagement shoot, I asked Ben to tell me the story of how they met, and when they fell in love. Molly held his hand and laughed as we walked around downtown Carlsbad with their dog Charlie. He shared the story of their first date, the first time they said “I love you”, and many memories the two of them had together throughout the streets we walked. It was such a fun afternoon. I am thrilled to be a part of their continued journey together and can’t wait to celebrate many more fabulous shots of these two at their wedding! Also, I’m convinced most of my friends will end up with ginger men & have ginger babies. I’m 100% cool with it.
