These photos were so fun to shoot! I got to know you a little bit better & you shared things about your life with me. I felt like a real friend & not just your friends' older sister who happens to be a photographer.
You are beautiful & I absolutely LOVED shooting you, mostly cause you do anything I tell you to! Haha, but seriously... You are one of the most positive people I have ever met. Not once have I seen you sad or angry.

Please stay happy & cheerful because it makes the people around you feel great! Your personality & smile just light up a room. I know you will go very far in life & I cant wait to hear about the amazing journey that God will take you on!

I love the way your hair looks perfect, even if you do nothing to it.
I love how you don't judge & you like people for who they really are.
I love you for being willing to be my model for the past 6 years.
I love your goofy, wild, hilarious & outrageous sense of humor (especially that crazy-woman-being-posessed-by-the-devil thing you were doing earlier! Gah, that made me roll!)
But most of all, I love YOU. God did an amazing job when He made you & I am so happy He did :)

Ben & Allie

It was my duty to retrieve the groom, Ben, & direct him to the location where he would see his bride before the wedding, a beautiful gazeebo. There was a lot of silence... 1) because I didnt know what to say to him, considering I met him for the first time 10 minutes before & 2) I'm sure all he wanted was to see Allie. He waits patiently with his back turned as his beautiful bride walks down the sidewalk. I look at Ben & he has the biggest smile on his face; I look at Allie & she also has a huge smile plastered across her face. They really love eachother & I think you can see their love in these photographs.
This was my very first wedding to photograph & I was more nervous that my dachsund during a thunderstorm. Wedding photos are nothing like normal portraits. These moments can never be recreated ever again & the photographer must capture them the first time around. At the beginning of the shoot, my nerves got the best of me. But as the day progressed I got more & more comfortable with myself as an artist, as well as with the bride & groom.
Ben & Allie, I hope your lives are continually filled with joy knowing you have your best friend beside you for life. I had a blast getting to know you on your wedding day & hope to see you both in the future. Congratulations on your marriage!
