When Clients Become Friends | Ben & Danielle

I’m happy to live in a small town where most of business comes from word of mouth or from people I already know somehow. I’m also happy when I can find clients who I can call friends, as I photograph  more and more major milestones in their lives and relationships. Ben and Danielle are one of those clients. The three of us went to high school together, but were never really friends. But back in 2012 our journey towards friendship began. Ben & Danielle have loved each other for  10 years now, and lucky for me they loved pictures, too.  Ben proposed in February of 2012, and we scheduled their *first* engagement shoot for May. Here’s some photos from our first time together:

Ben farms the land of a beautiful, privately-owned 1800s plantation named Clover Lea, which appears on the National Register of Historic Places. Check out these pictures from their *second* engagement shoot in September 2012.

Did I mention they were a very photogenic couple?

The owners, Mr & Mrs Williams have graciously allowed Ben & Danielle to not only have their engagement photos taken at their home but also Danielle’s bridal portraits…
