Karen & Ben - September 26th, 2009

Since I forgot my camera for Karen and Ben's wedding, I've been stocking their photographers blog. Kim is a great friend and a absolute amazing photographer.

I pulled these off of her blog. . . . every picture is simply breath taking.

I did get a wonderful testimonial from Karen.

"Karen and Ben are good people. The kind of people that make things better; by their actions, their outlooks, their attitudes. I'm not sure what that chances are that two people like that should happen to meet, fall madly in love, and decide to get married, but I'm glad they did. I'm also glad they chose me to photograph it, because it was a beautiful, emotional day, that -despite a few bumps along the way- turned out perfectly.

A few portraits of Karen. Isn't she stunning? (For the record, she is also quite charming, incredibly sweet, and full of grace, but those traits don't come across as well in photos.)"

"The ceremony was held at Smithfield United Church in downtown Pittsburgh. I think the way Karen is looking at Ben as they exchange their vows is a pretty good summation of how they feel about one another."

"How cute is the flowergirl? Seriously."

"A few portraits after the ceremony"

"Karen's long veil was perfect for getting some dramatic images like this one."
