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’ll feel as though you have a friend photographing and documenting your wedding. You’ll know through the relationship that we’ve 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’d like to learn more, give me a call or e-mail and we’ll schedule a consultation! I can be reached at: email@example.com OR 773.570.0457
( Additionally, we also offer wonderfully unique boudoir photography that can make an amazing gift! See that portfolio at: homebodyphoto.com )

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!!!Sent on 09/04/2019

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.Sent on 09/21/2019
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.

Beautiful pictures captured on your perfect day
I could talk all day about the amazing and beautiful moments Ben was able to capture on our wedding day. He was my hands-down our first choice. My husband's first time meeting Ben was for our engagement shoot. Right away the two of them clicked! He worked with Jake on how to keep his eyes open and not tilt his head down - two things Jake is great at doing! Ben taught us so many simple skills on how to look better; from our eyes to our stances, things we will use forever. On our wedding day, and during our engagement shoot, the one thing that stood out was that Ben was just awesome to be around during such important times. The entire time he was professional, fun, and skillful. He did all the thinking for us so that we could just enjoy our moment, be ourselves, and make us look even more amazing than we felt. If we wanted something specific shot he would do it, no questions asked. Ben made us both feel so comfortable and confident and we could not be happier with how every single picture turned out!Sent on 11/20/2018
What a great guy to work with! Relive the enchantment of your wedding day for years to come through the perfect moments that Ben captures.
