Ben & Sheila - January 2010

My first wedding of 2010 (usually I have to wait till May to say that)! Ben and Sheila were married at Woodbury Lutheran Church, followed by a reception at the Dakota Lodge in West St. Paul. They are a fantastic couple, and a pleasure to work with!

Here is my favorite shot of the year so far. The couple had this pergola decorated with lights with the hopes of using it for some pictures at the reception. Even though the rain / freezing rain tried to stop us, Sheila still wanted to give it a go. Here the couple is back lit by my remote flash, which really helps them POP!
