  1. Ummmmmmm I love your blogpost days, too. Holy wow dude. Holy. Wow.

  2. Benj, your work this year TOTALLY reminds me of Erik Clausen from a few years ago, when I first fell in love with it (http://www.erikclausen.com/). Especially your reception shots. AMAZING. I’m a big fan.

    This may be the single most beautiful wedding I have ever seen captured. I do not know if it is just your skills, those people, the venue or a combination of all 3?! Love your blog!

How richly God has decked thee!

And trust in God unchangingly.
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!”

FRIEND-DAY WEDNESDAY

Derks Works - Awesome Photography20131204-147

I’m just gonna come right out and say it. I have some awesome friends! Not just the guys that I hang out with on a weekly basis (though you know I love you guys too) but in the photographic and artistic world, I have AMAZING friends that encourage and challenge me to serve you better in every part of this awesome business. After going through a few rolls of film that I just got back I just thought I’d share a few of my friends with you. Be warned, they are very cool people and you might need to expand your blog roll.
