Benj Haisch  I follow Jesus, love @blackwhiteandbrunette & @oslohaisch, & photograph weddings/elopements for a living. 💻: @cascadepresets PNW & beyond.

Be kind.

Something @blackwhiteandbrunette and I are trying our best to impart onto our son Oslo on a daily basis.

Maddie and our friend Ali have been hard at work for months and months now and they’ve finally launched their new brand called @heis.co to the world today. I’m super proud of Maddie for stepping out and working on something new that she loves.

Here are a few of the photos I took for their Spring 2019 line. Obviously a departure from my typical work, but was too excited for them not to share. 🖤

It’s finally spring and the sun has been shining here in the PNW. I fired up the grill and even mowed my lawn yesterday while listening to sports radio talk about the Mariners. I love winter and the snow, but there really is something amazing about some clear skies 😉

On another note, if you’re a wedding/elopement photographer, love Yosemite, and want to learn, I’m teaching/speaking multiple classes and shoots at @dbmhcamp at the end of May. If you want to come hang, you can use the code BENJ300 to get $300 off your ticket. I don’t have any @cascadeworkshop planned as of now, so this will probably be the closest thing you’ll get to extended learning from me until at least after the season is over. If you’re already going, drop a comment! I’d love to pre-meet you too 🤙🏼

For the photo nerds, this is one of my favorite photos from a few years ago. A pano of two 6x6 Hasselblad photos that I stitched together to get this whole scene.

A beautiful mistake.
It’s been a week since I last posted on Instagram. Did you even notice? It’s been my longest time without posting since I jumped on this app back in 2011. I feel like we put too much stock into stuff like this. Instagram was down for a day last week and people lost their minds. Don’t get me wrong, I love this app and all of the connections and opportunities it’s given me, but it’s definitely not everything. ❤️

One of my favorite reception photos I’ve ever photographed.

I recently photographed a beautiful snowy wedding in Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado and when I posted it in a photography group, I had a lot of questions about how I was able to make it, so I thought I'd make a little tutorial about my thought process and execution.

I love moments like this so much. #momentsovermountains #peopleoverportfolio

Could it get any better???

Leif & Rachel threw one heck of a weekend and the Colorado weather played along beautifully. More snowy weddings, please! They’re just so magical and unique. @duntonhotsprings couldn’t be a better venue for a weekend in the mountains with your closest friends and family too.

An incredible weekend in @duntonhotsprings with a ton of new friends. I can’t wait to get to the “actual” photos, but couldn’t help snagging an iPhone photo after the ceremony.
-
A massive thanks to @seeds_of_freedom & @leifsunde for having me and to the rest of this amazing team for making magic happen this weekend.

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection.

Probably one of my favorite songs ever. I had the honor to lead it this weekend with my friends in @kenosisband at @resurrectiontacoma.

I wanted to share about a company I came across recently as well that’s making some really beautiful versions of the Bible too. They’re called @alabaster_co and they make small little versions of the Gospels, Romans, Psalms, and they’re taking preorders for Proverbs right now too. Any time there is a project that is combining art and the Bible on Kickstarter or something, I’m usually all over it, so I thought I’d share. I reached out and they’re doing 15% off with BENJHAISCH15 at alabasterco.com. I promise I’m not making any money off of this, just thought it would be a cool thing to share.

I could have lost everything.

Over the past few months, I’ve had three major hard drives become corrupt including my main editing computer, but luckily I’ve been working on a better system to make sure all of my work stays safe. I made a video that I published on YouTube today talking all about my process from when the photo is taken to when it’s stored away as an archive. I recorded over an hour of footage and condensed it down to about 18 minutes to make it a little easier for you all to consume. You can view it in the link below or through my IG stories.

It feels gloomy as can be today in the PNW, but I was reminded while looking through this elopement how beautiful that gloom can really be ❤️

Instagram is great for some quick photo inspiration, but so bad for encapsulating an entire day into a single photo. They’re more work, but what do you all think of these scrolling posts? I like the idea of doing micro blog posts of some of the weddings I’ve photographed over the years.

Sound good?

I've been strong
And I've been broken within a moment
I've been faithful
And I've been reckless at every bend
I've held everything together
And watched it shatter
I've stood tall and I have crumbled
In the same breath
-
I have wrestled
And I have trembled toward surrender
Chased my heart adrift
And drifted home again
Plundered blessing
Till I've been desperate to find redemption
And every time I turn around
Lord You're still there
