Anne and Ben were married on May 14th, 2010, about half a year after he returned from a deployment. Within another half of a year they moved to Illinois so that he could get back to college. Just before he proposed to her on Valentine's Day he bought Canon's 7D as a relationship investment (a good way to justify an expensive toy =). Since then, they have enjoyed learning about their camera and developing their skills by taking pictures socially with friends and family.
Their greatest motivation is capturing the most beautiful aspects of God's creation wherever they can find them. Ben's passion is capturing natural beauty in candid, flashless photography.
Amidst all of the wedding preparations, Ben created a modest wedding website and his passion for web design was rekindled after being put on the back burner while in the military. By December of 2010, he had polished and refined his skills, created 8 web designs and was hosting 4 web sites. Now that he is out of the military, he is looking forward to furthering his knowledge and helping businesses succeed by reaching out to their future customers. He is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering and looks forward to starting a family after graduating in May, 2014.
Anne graduated in August of 2010 from the University of Texas where she majored in Advertising. Rightly so, she is the creative influence of the two and provides the inspiration that directs Ben's work. In May of 2011 she found employment with the Board of Ceritified Safety Professionals as a Customer Service Associate. Just over a year after she was hired by BCSP she moved into the Marketing Specialist position.
