Audrey + Andrew...or A2 as I shall call them from now on, were such a blast to hang out with during their engagement session! When we were brainstorming for their session, we came up with a few ideas; nerf guns, picnics, flowwy dresses in the water, flower crowns...the list goes on. While we might of not done everything, what we did photograph was nothing less than magical. We photographed everything around the Montage in Laguna Beach, and lucked out with not only the weather, but the crowds.Read More
Sam + Joe are just like me, out of state transplants that got bit with the Colorado bug and moved across the country on a whim. How could you blame them? Colorado is filled with nice people, endless mountains, and winters that are just as fun as the summers.
These two met in Vail and after living there and in Denver for a few years...they decided to call Glenwood Springs their home. I had the pleasure of photographing them in their new hometown, and we chased the changing leaves while enjoying the perfect fall weather.
Next summer these guys are getting married in the city where it all started...in one of my favorite locations I've found while exploring Colorado, Piney River Ranch. You guys know how to pick a location, that's for sure!Read More
I first met Kiersta randomly at a wedding up in Fort Collins, Colorado. I was photographing bridesmaids bouquets when she popped up and said "You're Candice Benjamin, right?" at this point I was kinda scarred...I was 2nd shooting and my 1st goal is for people to not know who I am. And this bright eyed bridesmaid knew who I was? I smiled, shook my head and quickly went on my way....extremely flattered but not wanting to "get into trouble".
A few months later Kiersta emails me and tells me she's also a photographer/graphic designer, has been following me for years and wants me to photograph her destination wedding in Punta Cana. Um, yes?
If that wasn't enough a dream, they asked me to travel up to Portland, Oregon for their engagement session. We spent the entire day chatting, eating, laughing, and I really enjoyed being shown around their new home state. Kevin is also the coffee king (he has a setup that would put Starbucks to shame!!), so of course we started the session with homemade lattes. Heaven.Read More
