My Husband The Photographer

When I started this business way back in 2008ish I began following various photographers and I loved that some were husband and wife teams.  I mean, how amazing would it be to do what you loved with the person you loved??  Two years later, when Ben and I met, I remember being at a Clemson game while he was at a car show with the two guys that were to be his best men in our wedding.  He would send me pictures of cars and what they were up to and I just kept thinking, "Most people don't take pictures like that... we need to get a camera in your hand!"

His background is videography so he has an eye for it... he just didn't know how to use a DSLR.  But that would come :-)  Last summer Ben shot Abigail and Brent's wedding with me and this year, he'll be second shooting all of our weddings with me!  I'm so excited!  Not only will our brides and grooms receive more images with two of us shooting, but as Katelyn James has said, it's like having insurance on your wedding day with two of us there.

We're up in Indiana for Stephanie and Joe's wedding and since we had an extra day in Indianapolis yesterday, we ventured into town to get some updated head shots.  I am extremely biased towards my husband, but I think you'll agree that he's pretty amazing behind a DSLR :-)  Ben, thank you for being so amazing and for wanting to pursue this dream with me.  I love you!

We started out in downtown Indy, literally, the center of town. The light was perfect!

It was midday, but with the monument blocking the sun and the concrete to reflect the light,
what Ben was seeing through his lens worked fabulously.

What I was seeing is on the left, the image Ben took of me is on the right.

Yes, I love orange (Clemson alum, woohoo!), but orange and brown is in my branding,
so this dress that I bought for a wedding shower last fall was perrrrrrfect for new headshots!

Images from Monument Circle.

We then wandered to find a good alley to change things up a bit.

I'm not saying I love pictures of me, but Ben... this image is wonderful!
The composition... the light... everything :-)

We then wandered out to the Indiana Museum of Art where they have 100 acres of gardens!

Ben's turn.

Goodness... is he not SO handsome?!?!?

These look amazing! Great job, Ben! Isn't it so cool when your significant other understands and shares your passion!?

Okay, seriously, these are amazing. You are absolutely beautiful, and who better to capture that beauty on camera than your husband? Love you friend!

I'm a Greenville, SC based wedding and portrait destination photographer who loves to be behind the lens. I look forward to hearing what you think about the posts and images as I work with amazing people to capture life and give them images they love.
