Abby and Steve – Pittsburgh

Early in June I made a second trip to the charming Morning Glory Inn, which rests softly in the hard streets of south Pittsburgh. I photographed a wedding here a few years ago and have always remembered the Inn fondly. I was so happy to hear that Abby and Steve had seen the photos I did there and wanted to hire me to shoot there again.

Abby and Steve are amazing people, with so much going for them at such an early age. In the evening I asked them when they would be having kids and they said ‘ohh… we have a while.’ I asked them how old they were because they seem so grown up and learned they were both 23! Steve is currently working on projects with NASA… and Abby is way ahead of her years in stature. I felt really old when they told me how young they were! haha… I thought ‘lets get it together Ben…’

I was able to shoot a roll of film with my Hasselblad and love the look I got. I plan on using it a bunch more during the portrait sessions of upcoming weddings. See if you can tell which photos were taken with it, and which are digital!

I am officially dubbing this 'The Ray Ban Wedding' Any time you have a wedding in November in Ohio you are pushing your luck. Someone must be on someone's good side because we had an absolutely beautiful day. The ceremony was earlier in the day so we had a nice little chunk of time to get some photos before the reception. Add to that the fact they didn't have a wedding party and even more time can be spent getting some great portraits. While Andrea was getting ready one of her friends accidentally knocked one of my cameras off of a chair and it landed right on the lens. I was a little worried at first, but upon picking it up realized it ...

Brian & Jennie
Let me start out by saying that this is one of the funniest couples I have shot. I guess Brian has a thing for food and is ALWAYS eating. So, when they were introduced at the reception, instead of going straight to the head table, Brian jumped a server with some appetizers and started chowing down. All the while Jennie is doing her best to keep him focused on the task at hand, making it to his seat. Jennie was in on that one. Later on, during the cake cutting, just as they were about to feed each other the cake, Brian didn't want to wait for Jennie to feed him and ate his own piece... leaving Jennie speechless. She was not in on that! I sho ...
