If the photographer is interested in the people in front of his lens, and if he is compassionate, it’s already a lot. The instrument is not the camera but the photographer.Eve Arnold

Look who’s engaged!

It’s Jamie and Curtis! Such fun shooting this newly engaged couple and their lovely puppy down at Riverfront Park. While we wish they weren’t getting married down in Mexico without us, we wish this happy couple a tremendous journey together!

Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

Back to School

When Ben’s co-worker found out about this little photo business – she asked ‘do you do senior class photos’? Little did we know that twin sisters Rheanna and Adrienne would be such a joy to work with! And what better time to shoot portraits than fall in Colorado? We scouted out a nice meadow full of aspens near Denver, timed the lighting for the golden hour and simply lucked out with the weather.

Check out these shots and I think you’ll agree – yes, yes we do do senior photos.

Tan and Ben – Wedding!

We’ve been a little quiet around these BentaPhoto parts lately. Why’s that you ask? Because Ben was busy getting married!

Erin and Dexter

It was exhilarating hiding in the bushes waiting for the couple to walk up, seeing Dexter look for me in the crowd, and Erin’s surprise and happiness at his question. A glass of champagne and a chance to say congrats were a perfect end to seeing this couple change from boyfriend/girlfriend to each other’s fiancé’s. We are looking forward to capturing more special moments for you in the future!

You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.Ansel Adams

Meghan and Brandon

A couple that has fun together will stay together. It was Benta’s great pleasure to take the engagement photos of Meghan and Brandon, one of the happiest and fun loving couples we have met yet. Roxborough, Colorado was rumbling with the sounds of their Victory Motorcycles as we shot their pictures from the road. This beautiful landscape helped to show off their spirit as well as their home town college colors. Benta Photo had a blast shooting their engagement shots and can’t wait to photograph them again at their destination wedding next September!

Leah and Patrick

Benta Photo had the great pleasure to take engagement photos with Leah and Patrick, an amazing couple who have a life time of happiness to look forward to. It had just begun to rain as we left for the Evergreen Boat House. The classic Colorado stormy weather led to scenic backdrops of fog, rainbows, and dramatic skies.  It was yet another reminder that there is no such thing as “bad” weather when it comes to great photos.

Tan and Ben

Since the age of four, I have been best friends with Tangier and her sister Vanessa. We celebrated Vanessa’s wedding to her husband Justin this past summer. See Ben’s pics of their engagement shoot here and their wedding here. I had a feeling that after Vanessa’s wedding we would be celebrating Tangier and Ben!

Adam and May

It was friends at first sight for May and I. We met through a mutual acquaintance and I instantly wanted May as my friend. It was my great pleasure to take their engagement photos and share in the celebration of their proposal.
