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!

Jayce and Kristin
Jayce and Kristin..... I knew from the very first time I talked with Kristin that I was going to have a lot of fun at their wedding. Jayce and Kristin love life... and are not afraid to have some fun. But, they were not all jokes. There was a real sense of how special this day really was. After Jayce teared up just standing next to his grandparents for some formal shots, I knew he had a big heart. Kristin was not without her share of tears... but it is always nice to see the guys get emotional. Thankfully they were willing to jog a good 4 Iron's distance UPHILL to get what I think are the best shots of the day with the tree. I think Jayce c ...

Blake & Chelsea – Vermont
Blake and Chelsea are good friends of mine and I was honored to be able to shoot their wedding. The setting was in a charming old town in Vermont where Chelsea grew up. They had their ceremony in a historic theater with lots of character. I wish I had a little more time with them to take advantage of all the town had to offer, but the weather was not cooperative.  All in all it was a great day and I really enjoyed meeting their families. Best to the both of you!

This was the first wedding I have shot on New Year's Eve. If everyone is used to going out and partying for the holiday, you might as well have them do it at your wedding! We lucked out and had some decent weather temperature-wise, so we were able to take advantage of the outdoors for our wedding party and couple's photos. The ceremony was in Lancaster and the reception was in Columbus at The River Club. The club is right at the junction of two major rivers in Ohio and provides a beautiful view of the city. It was a great reception, with a live band for entertainment. Despite the power going out on the band at 9:30... and everyone wondering ...
