Maria + Ben // Engaged in Evansburg State Park

It snowed 5 or 6 inches the day before the shoot. We all *thought* we had waterproof boots on. There was more than one occasion where someone slipped, fell, almost fell down a bank & almost got stuck on the side of the road. Through it all, I heard Maria & Ben's story & their proposal story & got to know them a little bit better. I was smitten with Maria's fantastic, infectious laugh & got the warm-fuzzies when I saw the way Ben looked at her even after being together 7 years. I learned who they are together. Now I can't wait to photograph their wedding in (much) warmer weather come August.
