First and foremost, congratulations on your engagement! The following months of wedding planning are sure to be an exciting whirlwind of activity. Ben Elsass Photography takes extreme pride in being a part of your wedding day. While I enjoy the responsibility of capturing all the powerful emotions and spontaneous moments of your wedding, I also take our job very seriously. My goal is to create a unique photographic story of your day that you can look back on for years to come.

Building relationships with the couples I work with is one of my favorite, and most important parts of the wedding photography process. The first thing I do with every couple is schedule a consultation (face to face whenever possible). We will grab a coffee (or beer!) and discuss the logistics of your day, the desires you have for your pictures, as well as to address any other questions or concerns you may have. Moving forward from that step, I will be consistently accessible as your day approaches. I will always be at your rehearsal to ensure I know the ground rules of your ceremony site and what to expect on your day. This also allows me to meet with the people who will run your wedding and reception sites, as well as scout and brainstorm creative picture locations in advance! My goal is that by the time your big day arrives, you鈥檒l feel as though you have a friend photographing and documenting your wedding. You鈥檒l know through the relationship that we鈥檝e built, that I will be able to capture those unique and special moments that mean the most to you.

I shoot a limited number of weddings each year and never more then one in a weekend. This is to give every couple the personal attention they deserve. I am currrently based in Cincinnati, but shoot in Chicago, Columbus, Indianapolis, Lexington and Louisville with no travel fees required. I also shoot...anywhere else in the world (I love to travel!). I've shot weddings everywhere from Malibu to Omaha to St. Maarten to Puerto Rico (some additional travel fees may apply). Wedding packages begin at $2600. If you鈥檇 like to learn more, give me a call or e-mail and we鈥檒l schedule a consultation! I can be reached at: ben@benelsassphotography.com OR 773.570.0457

    We couldn't be happier!

    We couldn't be happier with the work that Ben produced for both our engagement shoot and our wedding. My husband and I both had very little experience being in front of a camera but thanks to Ben he immediately made us feel comfortable and it made for some great photos. He was so organized and detail-oriented which made the actual wedding day go so smoothly. He helped with the scheduling and made sure we had all of the little details included, as well as a list of who we wanted to get pictures with - trust me, you will want this list because you won't have any time to think about it on the day of. Ben truly has an eye for capturing great shots and when we got our photos back we were thrilled that we had so many wonderful ones to choose from. Thank you for making our special day that much better Ben, you're the best :)

    Impeccable

    all we can say is WOW. I reached out to Ben last minute hoping he could work us in for a Wednesday afternoon elopement, he jumped through hoops to make it happen and did an exceptional job. From moment one he was a pleasure, he truly makes you feel like you are a friend. He came with a ton of ideas ready to go so there wasn't any time wasted- I have had a lot of professional photos done and he is by far the best I have ever met. Highly recommend!!!

    The Perfect Experience!

    Ben shot my June wedding. He was the first vendor that we booked after our venue and I am so happy we chose Ben! Everything from start to finish was perfect. Ben even traveled to Chicago, where we live, to shoot our engagement photos which was so special to us.

    Ben was so helpful during the planning process and gave us great vendor recommendations. He helped us plan the day of timeline and answered my many logistical questions. He is very experienced in the industry and provided valuable advise throughout the planning process.

    The weather was not looking promising a few days before the wedding and Ben calmed my nerves and came up with a rain plan. He was so cool and collected on the day of which helped me with the wedding day jitters! He was very respectful of the church's photography rules and helped the day go smoothly. Ben's second shooter was also so sweet!

    Besides being amazing to work with, my husband and I are so happy with how our photos came out. Ben even delivered our images a couple weeks early! He captured so many moments and emotions and it has been so fun reliving the day through our photos. Everyone was so complimentary of Ben's professionalism and we will cherish these photos forever!

    We really can't thank or recommend Ben enough.
