We booked Ben for our engagement shoot, which was at Joshua Tree National park. Ben was very prepared and had even prepared and picked out a few locations inside the park to take photos at. He is very personable and has a fun and exciting approach to shooting. He made my fiancé and I feel very comfortable and wasn’t afraid of making improv changes or taking suggestion, we look forward to having Ben as our wedding photographer as we were extremely satisfied with with both Ben’s professionalism and finished photos with our shoot.

My wife and I got eloped at Joshua Tree in 2020 after our wedding event was cancelled. We hired Ben to do our photography, and without a doubt, it was the best decision we made. Wow! Ben is extremely professional. He listens, he empathizes, he guides, and of course, he takes DAMN good pictures! Ben was super accommodating when he agreed to meet us at our Airbnb for our “before” photos. He captured so much! When we were frantically trying to get into the park before sunset to do the ceremony, Ben drove with us and captured some great moments in the car. When we finally made it (just in time) Ben and our officiant worked together and coordinated the perfect spot and setup (they had never met prior to this). Afterward Ben stayed with us and captured some more beautiful moments on the Rocks of Joshua Tree. He even had a special question game prepared and capture our reactions as he asked us questions. Most of the photos were candid and we were able to act natural the whole time and just be ourselves and I think it really helped capture the moment and emotions that came with it. Ben stayed late (beyond our allotted time) and took pictures of us cutting the cake back at our Airbnb. Truly selfless moves and a joy to meet! P.s. we loved one of Ben’s pics so much we have it blown up and framed above the mantle. Thank you so much Ben. You really helped make our big day special!

Ben was fantastic! My partner and I were nervous about being photographed, but Ben made us very comfortable. His style is more candid and I really like that because he caught some really special moments of us together that just wouldn't have happened if we were posing or staged. He had a lot of creative ideas for places to get great shots and was really receptive to our input as well. I will forever look fondly at these photos. Thank you so much Ben!

Ben shot my surprise proposal and was amazing! He was super helpful and responsive and pulled it off beautifully. He captured the moment and was able to send a few images right away with a ton to following soon after. I highly recommend working with Ben!

Ben was a great addition to the day. We met with him before the date to talk about our style and what we wanted from the images. On the day, he showed up on time and got to work. We were more interested in candid style photography and he was happy to make that happen. Ben moved around the wedding and got shots we didn’t even notice him taking. We got a ton of photographs in our gallery to chose from. Which I appreciated because you are not always going to like the pictures your photographer chooses. We got to go through and choose the ones we liked to share with our families. All in all a very good experience.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I shape the bundle to your needs. You tell me what you are looking for.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    For those set to be married , I prefer to meet in person. I believe that getting to know each other, even just briefly, before the wedding allows me to get a sense of the type of story the couple has and/or wants to be told. For corporate events, I like to go over their event with them in person, understand each other & create a seamless work day.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a degree in photojournalism, which has helped me craft my storytelling photography. Aside from education, I have 6 years of professional photography, creating images for all types of people and events.
