THE JOURNAL

It was just one month before they were to be married when James and Melissa contacted me about photographing their wedding. Despite my busy summer schedule, I happened to have their date free! I’m so glad I was available to capture this amazing couple’s special day! Besides their previous photographer canceling, their hotel also closed, and they had to shorten their guest list by over half of the original expected attendees. They had already changed their wedding date because of COVID, now they had to scramble to get everything re-planned. They were overwhelmed. The tears, discussions, frustrations, and fears, felt at times, unsurmountable. Melissa was starting her first year as a principal and could not imagine postponing her wedding for a whole year. Who knew if next year’s situation would be any different? They took a risk to move forward with their plan, and are so glad they did. With Ben Reeder Photography providing a live stream experience for their guests watching from home, James and Melissa felt like they could go on with their planned festivities. I’m so glad they did… it was an incredible day!

When Michael first saw Lauren, it was as if the room lit up around her…He knew it was love at first sight. She thought he was really handsome but was too nervous to talk to him. That was over four years ago, on a trip to Philadelphia to see Christmas lights with mutual friends…those lights led to a date, which led to an engagement, which will lead to an October wedding this year!

They were friends in high school, and then became college sweethearts. In 2014, Roy took Gabi to Lake Redman in York, Pa and asked her to be his girlfriend. Since that seemed to work for him, he decided to try the same place to ask her to be his wife. So, this past year, on a rainy day, they went back there for a picnic, and Roy popped the question. Gabi was so happy to say yes! Ironically, on the day of their engagement shoot, it also rained! (On a positive note, in some cultures, this a symbol of good luck) The rain actually worked in our favor, and the photos turned out beautifully.
