Benny is the BEST!
Gosh, we loved Benny from the moment we met him! He came highly recommended by our venue owner and wedding planner, and he was the first and easiest vendor we booked. After a brief meet-and-greet at a local coffee shop, we liked Benny so much, we didn’t bother considering other photographers. Three things stood out to us about his work:
1. Benny used to be an engineer and has a unique eye for angles, which our mid-century modern venue — The Lautner Compound — is perfect for. He was already very familiar with shooting there, which was a bonus.
2. Benny knows how to work with couples. My husband and I are awkward with posing for photos, but Benny was able to talk us through every shot and put us completely at ease.
3. Benny takes candid photos. Our favorite photos are the ones where people are laughing, smiling and genuinely having fun without knowing they’re being photographed. The way Benny captures those moments is beautiful.
Our engagement photoshoot in Joshua Tree was so much fun! It was windy and it had rained heavily earlier that day, plus we were already nervous having never done a photo shoot before, but Benny swooped right in and calmed our nerves. The evening was so gorgeous, we let spontaneity take over and ended up not following our original itinerary. Benny and my husband (who is a geologist) nerded out big time with the scenery and we ended up having so much fun! On our wedding day, Benny (who was dressed so snazzy in his vest and bowtie) and his associate (who was also SO awesome!) were on time, worked hard to stick to our tight schedule, and were completely professional. They worked swiftly and made the wedding experience so fun, that it never felt like they were cutting into our time with our family and friends.
As you may know, wedding planning can be daunting and gets expensive quickly, no matter how much you try to cut costs. We initially struggled with Benny’s prices (as we did with any vendor), but we quickly learned that his services are quite reasonable and worth every penny. With Benny, you’re getting exceptional quality, great communication, and a five-star service, hands-down. Benny is incredibly talented, kind, attentive, drama-free, and genuine. He truly cares about the caliber of his work and aesthetics, and listened well to what we wanted. We could’t have hired a better photographer and we are absolutely pleased with his work!Sent on 12/31/2019

Artistic, Talented, Personable
Benny is fantastic to work with. He makes you feel comfortable and at ease, which is so important because posing for photos is AWKWARD. He is incredibly talented and artistic. He has a great eye for hidden gems, photo framing, and natural lighting. During the photo shoots, he looks for inspiration with the lighting, time of day, shadows, and building textures. He is also amazingly efficient. We did our engagement photo shoot at 4 different locations in downtown LA (Hermosa Vista Park, Lower Grand Avenue, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and the Broad Museum) in under 2 hours. He is responsive, accessible, easy-going, and is always on time and keeps you on schedule. If you're looking for top-quality photography, you need to check out Benny's work. Most wedding photography tends to look the same, but Benny's work really stood out. He stays humble even though his work is unique and absolutely gorgeous. We are really glad we found Benny.Sent on 11/12/2019

We were referred to Benny by a friend who was married in Orange County. He flew up to Northern California to shoot our wedding! I have never met a photographer that made me feel so at ease. My now husband is a shy person and doesn't really like photos but Benny actually brought out some natural smiles and laughter from him. Benny is super friendly, kind, and rolled with the punches. It was rainy and overcast on my wedding day and actually the pictures all turned out super gorgeous. Benny's work ethic and patience was amazing as well. He was on time, didn't mind getting wet in the rain, and even though he was technically off the clock at the end of the night, he took some time to do a couple more portraits for us (and we ended up loving the shot!). I was surprised at how quickly he got back to us with a slideshow and some sneak peeks. I definitely recommend him plus his additional photographer because they were fun to work with and most importantly made everyone and the venue look like a million bucks! Could not be happier and can't wait to receive our fancy wedding album!!!Sent on 05/31/2019
Don't hesitate in setting up a meeting or video chat with him because he will definitely deliver!
