It all started when...
Ben picked Meghan up from the airport after she'd taken a trip to Los Angeles in November of 2016.
The two had met a couple years prior at a small group gathering that Ben hosted at his home, and their friendship developed slowly as they focused on their freelance careers—Meghan continuing to grow her wedding photography business and Ben traveling on the road with a friend for a personal documentary project.
But things had changed. It was the summer of 2016, and Ben and Meghan were now neighbors. The two began meeting up at coffeeshops to edit photos and talk about life. The bond was instant and Ben fell for Meghan quickly, though it took him a while to recognize it. After numerous bonfires, parties, front porch hang outs, and deep conversations—a breaking point had come. Meghan had left for LA for two weeks, and Ben knew the day after she left that he wanted their relationship to be more than just two friends bonding over photos and coffee.
Ben picked Meghan up from the airport and asked if she'd join him for a cocktail at a small restaurant in their neighborhood. The two caught up about life while Ben mustered up the courage to tell Meghan how he really felt. They began dating soon thereafter and quickly found in one another the person they'd been looking for all along.
