Monica and Ben (Saratoga Wedding Photography) @ Saratoga Foothill Club

The first time I got to really hang out with Ben and Monica was during their Moss Beach engagement shoot at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. I pretty much make it a requirement these days for many reasons, but most of all I just like to get to know couples a little better before spending the biggest day of their lives with them. It’s a chance to observe and interact with them in a low-stress environment, which really lets their personalities shine through. Monica and Ben are like two peas in a pod, naturally laughing and cuddling together. They brought me to the location on the cliffs where Ben proposed, and we had so much fun re-enacting it for the camera. On the wedding day at Saratoga Foothill Club, I got to meet Monica’s twin sister – it’s a good thing they were wearing different colored dresses! The thing I’ll always remember about Monica is her dress/shoes – I think the dress was under $100, and the shoes were over $800 (she kept them in the hotel safe haha!). Hey, everyone’s got priorities right?

All the family and friends were SO nice – Ben had some relatives all the way from England make it – one of whom I’d randomly met a couple years before at a friend’s house – small world! We captured some beautiful images together, my favorites being the B&G formals of course as we walked around downtown Saratoga. Below is a slideshow of my favorites documenting Ben and Monica’s wedding day. Many more photos and print orders can be made at Ben and Monica’s Wedding Page.
