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!

Denise + Jermyl
I headed west to the small town of Coldwater, OH for my second wedding there. Denise and Jermyl are just full of life. Jermyl can make everyone laugh... and is always having a great time. Hang around with him for just 5 minutes and he will have you smiling. I am so happy I got to be a part of this day and could witness their two families coming together. It was really something special! Once again, the Mamiya 67 kills it. Love the color I got on this dreary, cold, November day in Ohio. Very happy I brought film along with me. I must admit it was hard to change the rolls when my hands were so cold! ...

Andrea + JJ
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 ...

Jeremy & Hillary – Key Largo
Jeremy and Hillary were getting married in Key Largo... "would you be willing to shoot our wedding???" hmmmm, let me think... I guess I could travel down to that dump for a day or two haha What an awesome location for a little get away wedding. Small weddings like this are great because they really bring family together, and it feels all the more special. On a beach.... in June... in record high heat (yeah, record highs for Florida... you know thats GOT to be hot!!!) they got married. I was also given the task of shooting a video for this wedding that they could play at the reception back in Ohio to show their guests what it was like ...
