• Ben + Mary

Once again, I was absolutely delighted to capture the wedding of a friend! I can’t explain how awesome it is to celebrate with some of my closest college friends and capture the day at the same time. My job is so much fun!

So, Ben and Mary are just awesome people. I could leave it at that but let me elaborate. They are so different and yet so alike that it makes for the perfect balance. I had gotten to know them separately throughout college but it wasn’t until recently that I really had the oppurtunity to watch them TOGETHER.  They were made for each other! Ben and Mary are best friends and it is so obvious!I love that about them.  I also love that they first bonded over a common interest in CEREAL! Woohoo! I literally survive on cereal, day in and day out!

Anyway, Mary and Ben, you are a gorgeous couple. I wish you very best and I can’t wait to see all that the Lord has in store for you two! Love you both!

A teal wall?! Really?! I was in heaven!

I’m in love with this LIGHT! It’s so amazing!!

Ok, I just had to post this! Look at Mary’s adorable Grandma! Love it!

    Some great shots! I think you have a great future in this business. The profile shot of Mary and Ben (where she has her hands up at his neck) is my favorite by far. I agree – these 2 could be models!
