Anna & Ben

June 28, 2007

On Saturday I had the opportunity to assist Justin & Mary at a wedding they were shooting outside of Hartford. They are both awesome photographers and it always interesting to shoot with someone new and learn what their style is. I knew immediately why couples are lucky to get them – they are never intrusive but always present to catch the right moments, they go out of their way to be thoughtful and help out when needed, and they have such great energy to keep things going. You guys are AWESOME.

The ceremony was at Anna’s childhood church down the street from her parent’s house and then the reception was at The Bond in downtown Hartford – amazing views.

I always knew I loved weddings but being able to watch them unfold from beginning to end is such an honor. Anna and Ben were such a fun couple to work with and so comfortable and non stressed the day of – it was great to see them really enjoy the day and take it all in.

We started the morning at Anna’s parent’s house….

Anna’s beautiful gown.

A proud Mom. Her face says it all.

I had a lump in my throat behind the camera watching this scene unfold and the expression of happiness on Ben’s face when he first caught site of Anna – WOW.

An awesome idea for simple aisle decoration

We did it!

It was fun to catch Anna checking out her new ring….her bridesmaids wanted to see 🙂

Ben’s super proud Mom – I love the look of sheer joy on her face

Mary looking super stylish with her SHOOTSAC

No hiding from the photographers!

This was one of my favorite moments of the day. It was getting towards the end of formals and everyone was a bit tired and hungry. Justin directed Ben to “swoop” Anna and he did just that. She was so taken by surprise – I love the expression on his face – pure adoration.

Their beautiful cake….

Fun times had by all – you guys are DA BOMB!
