Doro and Gretchen – A Spiritual New York Wedding
The last rain drops had fallen just a few hours before Gretchen and Doro's wedding. Quite literally, the atmosphere was approving their plans for their outdoor ceremony in Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. While things were a bit wet, it absolutely lent itself well to their wedding full of love and positive energy. Where to begin... I really couldn't narrow down photos for this post. I have a whole log of photos that I wanted to share. Unfortunately, you might be here for a month scrolling through them if I did that! I can't be blamed if you did not show up for work tomorrow because you spent all night looking at their photos, so I had to cut them ...

Kristin and Alicia Ridge Wedding at The Branford House
Okay, so whats better than an amazing Bride and Groom? Two Amazing Brides! Double the beautiful details! And to top it off, the most infectious laughter. I mean really, I was shooting on a 200mm lens from far away, and I hear one laugh, and another laugh, and all I could do was laugh too! Their entire day was no different, smiles across the board! To give you an idea of how awesome they are, I just straight up copy and pasted their advice to couples planning their wedding day. Most couples say the same thing, but these two worded it perfectly. It's a marriage, not a wedding. Don't lose sight of your partner when you're planning. The process ...

Nate and Alicias Yacht Club Wedding
I LOVE Durham, CT. I love all of my people from Durham. Durham was quite an amazing place where in the 1990's families just stayed there. Everyone knew everyone in one way or another. It makes shooting any wedding from anyone from Durham special. Nate and Alicia definitely did not disappoint! From start to finish, their day was unique, beautiful, and thoroughly planned. They planned an Autumn Rustic Country wedding on the River, and they nailed it on the head.  I could say much more, but really, I think only pictures can accurately reflect how amazing this day was. To book your Wedding email us at photosbyjbenson@gmail.com A huge thank ...
