Andrew and Kellys – Rustic Fall Wedding at Crystal Peak

Weddings

We rushed outside when there was a break in the rain. As everyone got situated outside, the skies opened back up. It could not have been more perfect if we planned it. While we were ready to just sit in the rain, it was officially called to relocate back inside. A common theme that every couple seems to give as advice is “things aren’t always going to go your way, but at the end of you day you marry the person you love”. And their wedding was no exception. The threat of rain loomed all day, and it held out until everyone was dressed and ready to take photos outside. While the outdoor ceremony was rained out, the love still flowed just as happily inside (well with the exception of Blake who was not interested in all the attention).

While the rain may have dampened us, it didn’t dampen the spirits inside. The indoor ceremony got underway a little late, but it was worth the wait! While short time, always hurts us, we managed to come out with some really beautiful photos when it was all said and done!

If you happened to watch the news in Connecticut in October, there is a pretty good chance you might have seen one of the more heartwarming moments of the evening. Andrew sang and absolutely lovely rendition of a Dustin Lynch song for Kelly and her Father who had lost their Mother and Wife earlier this year.

It was a night full of amazing people, celebrating an amazing couple, and we were honored to be a part of it.

The Civil City Wedding of Edwin and Lina – Lima, Peru
Edwin and Lina found me in the knick of time. I was preparing to leave my winter stay in Peru, when the reached out for their wedding date. Unfortunately, I was scheduled to leave their big day, but I was definitely fortunate enough to shoot their Civil Wedding and Engagement shoot.  A 1 1/2 hour taxi ride to the outskirts of Lima, Peru to shoot their civil ceremony, and then the same taxi ride back to the little section of Lima called Barranco. There is always a language barrier when I shoot weddings in Peru, but as always, me mimicking the poses gets results. I hope you enjoy looking, as much as I did shooting.

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 ...
