My experience with Ben was a 10/10.
I booked Ben to shoot my outdoor evening wedding. Leading up to the wedding, Ben was quick to respond to any emails I sent, called to do a phone type interview to ask questions about myself and the groom and get a feel for us and the style of our wedding, and he followed up a couple weeks before the wedding to double check on final arrangements/locations. As soon as he got there the day of and introduced himself, Ben was polite, professional, and kept the mood light and fun. Ben came with two cameras hooked to this awesome shoulder/back harness that he wore which allowed him to move quickly and keep the cameras handy, I really appreciated this because we were able to take shots around the golf course easily without moving equipment. Ben got all my requests for specific photo shots that I wanted and a perfect location for our private first look. During our wedding party photos, Ben kept the mood light and relaxed and I had a wonderful time!
During the outdoor ceremony itself, Ben did such a great job of not being intrusive. I have seen some truly distractive photographers getting right up next to the bride and groom and it just makes me cringe. He got some beautiful shots without becoming intrusive. During the reception, Ben was just as great as he had been all afternoon. The groom and I snuck away for some photos under the stars at the ceremony site and I absolutely just love them. It was so wonderful to take a moment together with the bustle of the reception going on nearby and just be together. I felt it was a very intimate moment and it did not feel like we were having our picture taken at all, we were able to relax and Ben worked his photo magic and the photos are beautiful.
Our families had nothing but positive things to say about Ben. Not only was he a great photographer, he was a really personable guy too!I would book Ben again and I highly recommend him.
