There are thousands of methods I could use to get to know a couple. These two though, I didn’t send them a survey or ask them obvious “get to know you” questions. I knew Ben was a fellow Hoban Knight (and that alone is something sacred).
But it was during their engagement session that my eyes saw the Ben + Emma magic!
Five seconds in, they locked their keys in the car.
I know, I know, face palm right?
But I must commend them! The way they made light of the situation said a ton about them as a couple.
Since then, everything about these two made my heart feel lighter. Their relationship is filled with an enormous amount of kindness, respect, laughter, and fur babies.
And their wedding was no different. The entire day was held at Glenmoor Country Club, decorated with some of the most amazing florals known to man! (Seriously.) My camera was so shutter happy with their guests, pups, donuts, and even batman! I also had about 100 images of Ben showing me the inside of his custom suit (he was so proud!). That, along with Emma’s wedding croc’s, well my day was made!
With every piece of their special day filled with love, I could cry happy squeals forever!!
Bottom line: it was an immense honor to have them cross my camera!! If I could relive their day again I would.
Enjoy some of my favorites! // xo riss
