Inn at Leola Village Wedding

I think sometimes by chance your really hit is off with a Bride and Groom….and sometimes the bride makes you cookies and your REALLY hit it off with them. Well Rebecca did just that when I drove down to DC for their engagement photos. We had such a great time and she made me cookies because I drove so far to see them. So I was really excited to see Rebecca and Jordan both because they are simply just the nicest people you will ever meet.

Their wedding day was just perfect and the Inn at Leola did a fabulous job once again. I may be a little bias because I really like everyone who works there but I think the Leola Village is the best wedding venue in the area.

I really hope they enjoy their photos as much as we liked taking them….Cheers, Ben

Alexis and Rick 5.24.14

As each of you know from my previous blogs that I thoroughly enjoy my job as a photographer, but what happens when you are asked to shoot a family member’s wedding…well…on May 24th I photographed my niece Alexis and her new husband Rick’s wedding in Richmond, Virginia and couldn’t of been more proud. I could not have asked for a more picture perfect day for a wedding where the sky seemed to be painted a crystal clear blue and the sun was positioned high in the sky. A little background about Alexis and Rick….their love story began at Virginia Tech and on Christmas Eve 2012 Rick proposed to Alexis with a custom engagement ring that he proudly designed. Soon after the engagement the whirlwind of wedding planning began and Alexis asked me if I would mind shooting her wedding instead of being a guest. I was delighted to accept the offer. People have asked me if I feel more pressure when photographing a family event and the simple answer is “No,” especially when it comes to weddings. I get the unique opportunity of illustrating beloved memories that are created on a wedding day. Of course since Alexis is my niece I made sure that I captured each of her special moments from her and Rick’s wedding day. Alexis and Rick I hope that you enjoy and treasure your photos for years to come. When you look at your wedding portraits may they continue to serve as a reminder of this phenomenal day and remind you how much you are loved by your family and friends.

Thanks for allowing me to play such a vital role and cheers to a long and happy marriage filled with endless laughter.    Uncle Ben

Wedding Photography Hershey PA

Erin & Nathan’s wedding took place in the sweetest place on earth in Hershey, PA. Their reception was held within the vast grounds of the Milton Hershey School at Purcell Friendship Hall. Erin and Nathan incorporated their love of chocolate and wine at their reception. In fact their engagement took place at a winery and their engagement photosession at Nissley Winery. Erin and Nathan continued this theme as each of the bridal party had custom wine glasses, corks served as place card holders, and wine bottles creatively displayed the table numbers and were used as centerpieces. It was important to Erin and Nathan to make sure that their guests continued to have as much fun as they did throughout the evening. They did not allow the rain to dampen their spirits.  Thank you to Erin and Nathan for putting together a fantastic wedding day. We hope you enjoy your wedding photos as much as we enjoyed capturing all of your special moments during your wedding day. Cheers to a long and happy marriage with plenty of light-hearted moments.

Cheers, Ben

Riverdale Manor Wedding Photos

I had the tremendous opportunity to photograph Stacy and Derek’s wedding on a beautiful and warm spring April afternoon. Riverdale Manor in Lancaster, PA served as the perfect backdrop and what a wonderful day. The landscape was lush and everything was in bloom with bright colors surrounding the entire event from the flowers in the bouquets to the centerpieces. I enjoy photographing weddings where the details are impeccable. Thanks to Stacy and Derek’s attention to even the smallest details; it made my job that much easier. I appreciate all of the effort and hardwork that goes into making a wedding happen. Stacy and Derek threw a wedding that will be remembered by their friends and loved ones for a long time to come. Throughout the day, Stacy and Derek beamed with excitement and joy, which was felt by all of their guests. When I photograph weddings, I always try to pull at least one unique characteristic from each wedding. For Stacy and Derek, it was the long marriages of their parents, who have certainly served as true examples for their children. Thanks again to Stacy and Derek for a great day and cheers to a long and prosperous marriage. Cheers, Ben

La Massaria at Bella Vista Wedding

It was my first wedding at La Massaria at Bella Vista and I wasn’t disappointed. Such a gorgeous place and the staff was very nice. Of course,  I was excited to see Meg and Nick again after we had such a nice time together taking their engagement photo in Philly. These two are really laid backed to begin with but we got there early enough that we could take out time shooting. Everything about their wedding was perfect, Meg and Nick looked awesome, their family and friends were the best, the weather was iffy that week but ended up pristine…it was seriously one of my favorite weddings ever.

To Meg and Nick…Thanks again for allowing me to be there to document it for you. The love you have for each other is clear…and I wish you all the best for a long and happy road together.

I hope you enjoy the photos. Cheers, Ben

Omni Hotel Philadelphia Wedding

This wedding makes me want to throw a party and it was a great break from such a cold and snowy winter we had this year. A change of pace is always a good thing and when I was asked to shoot a wedding that would be much more intimate and relaxed I jumped at the opportunity. Julie and David are such a great couple with a beautiful family which made shooting their wedding such a treat. Not only were they easygoing and happy but they were eager to give me anything that I thought might make for a better image (my favorite type of client).

Here are just a few of my favorites from the day! Cheers, Ben
