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!

Dusty & Kayce – Indiana
Dusty and Kayce are great friends of mine and I am very happy that they invited me to shoot their very intimate wedding back in September. They got married in a one room 'schoolhouse' that was originally built by the quakers back in the early 1800's. Nothing else has been done to the building since then. No electric. No water. No lights. They did have benches though! It was an awesome spot, and they had great weather... which could have very easily ruined the day had it not co-operated. I am lucky enough to have them living close-by so I get to see them often after the wedding, which is not the case a lot of time. Enjoy! ...

Emily + Dave
Jorgensen Farms is just minutes from where I live. I would LOVE to go back and shoot more events there. The venue is spectacular for summer weddings in Ohio. It take a pretty laid back couple to make the venue fit... and Emily and Dave are two of the calmest, coolest people you will ever meet. Both of them have huge hearts, and you can sense that immediately upon meeting them. It was such a pleasure to spend the day with them at the farm, capturing the most important day of their lives. Dave gave Emily one of the coolest gifts possible before the wedding.  He gave her a well written card for the day, but also wrote out cards for all of the ...
