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!

Paul and Hilary
Paul and Hilary had a brilliant wedding with lots of fun and laughter. Hilary was beaming the whole day, and Paul had a smirk on his face like he knew he was getting the better half of the deal (no to take away from Paul... but she is gorgeous). I had a lot of fun shooting this wedding, and the locations they chose for getting ready and photos were great. Anytime I can get out of a hotel room and into something different I am happy. They got ready at a house in German Village, which sadly is no longer allowing wedding parties to get ready there. This is probably my favorite wedding of the year so far and I am sure the photos will do their d ...

Chris & Ashley – Pittsburgh
It's not often that you get such a charming location for a wedding. An old golf club on the outskirts of Pittsburgh set the perfect scene for Chris and Ashley's wedding. It rained early on in the day, but by the time the ceremony started the sun was shining. Everybody in the wedding party was a great sport and it was good to hang out with all of them. The party later on was highlighted by a great live band... it was one of those nights you didn't want to end!

Pat and Audra
My second wedding of the year was fairly similar weather-wise to the first wedding I shot.... overcast and a touch of rain. Just like the first one though, Pat and Audra didn't let that get to them and would never be able to tell from the photos that it was even on their minds. After seeing that all the bridesmaids were blonde, and knowing Pat was a blonde, I immediately questioned if all the groomsmen were blonde too. The last time I shot in Zanesville was for Adam and Sarah's wedding two years ago... so I have fond memories of the location.
