Ben Chrisman

Ben Chrisman is really my very favorite wedding photographer and the reason I recently bought an 85mm f1.2 lens. His work is phenomenal. I'm even trying to copy the gear he uses which from what I can tell is the Canon 5D Mark II and usually just the 85mm f1.2 and 35mm f1.4 lenses.

I couldn't believe it when Jose Roces mentioned that he just had dinner with him the other week . . . I totally flipped out. I think I even shoved Jose and said, "Get outta here!" or something like that.

Guess who just commented on my Jon and Darlene post? BEN CHRISMAN!!!

My pictures so don't even deserve to be looked at by him . . . sooooo shame!!

Isn't the internet unreal??!!! HOW-DA-HELL???

Jalna, don't sell yourself short. To someone that doesn't know one thing about taking pictures, other than point and shoot, your work is amazing. It does not surprise me that someone you admire would compliment you. You deserve the recognition. And you will only get better - you know - practice makes perfect! You go, girl!! :))
