Arianna & Ben

While on a date at Conner O’Neills in Boulder, she wore a scarf. He asked her, “What is nice about your scarf?”

She didn’t know. So he pulled her close with the scarf and kissed her for the first time. (Here’s to you, Casablanca).

For this image, I used a plane of glass as a source of reflection. I especially like the leading line from the Ben’s ribbons/medals to Arianna. However, the drama & symmetry of the hands make this a top pick.wpid-arianna_ben_boulder_engagement_session12-2010-12-23-11-47.jpg Sixteen years ago they met at band camp.

    Great photos! Some really distinguished, unique, and memorable photos. He looks like Garth Brooks in some of the photos, which is a good thing. 🙂

    Ben and Arianna,
    The photos are truly amazing, and incredible visuals of your love for each other, I would say they will bring back many memories in years to come, but I believe you won’t need them, they will just be a nice addition to what your hearts and minds will carry always.

    To the photographer – nice job!
