Carrie and Ben's Mansion Wedding

June is a very busy month for wedding photographers and this proved as no exception for me. I usually try to photograph only one wedding per month because of the time required for photo processing. Working my full-time job at Shutterfly and maintaining my personal life seems challenging enough, however, I could not say no to this couple. I have known Carrie, Ben and their families for a few years and have photographed a couple other of their celebrations. I went to college with Ben's sister-in-law, Cynthia, and we have stayed in contact all these years (I also photographed her wedding back in 2011). I was honored that they asked me to be a part of their special day.

Carrie and Ben decided to tie their knot at Dolce Hayes Mansion in San Jose, CA. I really enjoyed this venue because of the many beautiful, unique scenic backdrops and props available to me. My goal with this wedding was to shoot a classical vintage theme, so this venue was perfect for that. Carrie and Ben were SO easy to work with...I have never witnessed a couple SO chill and relaxed. Even the wedding party was very relaxed and fun to work with. This made the day even more enjoyable.

Thank you Carrie and Ben for hiring me as your photographer. I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
