Photography | A Frolic on Moss Beach

Race day.  The shoes are laced, the body is carbed up and hydrated, and the heart is pumping with adrenaline.  Or is it love?

Ben & Felice - two total strangers - laid eyes on each other while waiting at the starting line on race day.  They chatted briefly and really hit it off.  During the race they kept pace with each other, these two total strangers, encouraging one another and keeping each other company.

That is, until Felice saw two women in her division that were "catchable."  She took off, leaving Ben behind, to catch those women and take the lead.  When he arrived at the finish line not too long after her, she was there waiting for him.  She may have caught up with those two women (and beat them), but she also caught Ben's heart.

These two lovebirds have the kind of relationship movies are made of.  They feed off each other in a way that's so rare and so beautiful to witness.  Felice's high energy brings out Ben's playful spirit - running in the surf, climbing old trees, and hiking up sea cliffs - while Ben's peaceful, loving nature calms and anchors her.  They are a perfect complement to each other.

The awesomeness doesn't stop at their Moss Beach engagement session.  Oh, no no no, my friend.  Ben & Felice have a wonderful love fest planned for their wedding that involves a steam engine train and the Santa Cruz mountains.  Needless to say, I can't wait!
