Hi there! My name is Ben Schaefer, and I am the founder/owner of Silver and Salt Photography based around Boston, with a storefront studio in Arlington. I photograph each and every wedding, and consider it a massive honor to be welcomed into the inner circles of the couples I work with. I approach each day as unique and blend an unobtrusive documentary approach to tell the story of the wedding celebration.
Silver and Salt Photography offers couples an alternative to traditional posed photography. I focus on the joy, hugs, authentic momements and stories from YOUR wedding, rather than a set colledtion of dresses haning in windows and a photograph of shoes.

So talented and a pleasure to work with!
We had the absolute pleasure of working with Ben for our August wedding this past summer. I can not speak more highly of him. I had originally seen his work and was drawn to his beautiful photography that are truly works of art. We were looking for someone for someone with more of a photojournalism and fine art style to capture images from the day. Our photos came out so beautifully and we could not be more pleased. Ben was also so professional and patient when talking me through options of how the day could be structured. He helped us pick out some fantastic locations for portraits and our first look. At moments you could say Ben was my therapist during a very stressful wedding planning endeavor, bringing expertise and a calm energy to the entire process. My friends and family also commented on how great he was to work with. I’m looking forward to finding an excuse to host another event in the future just so we can have Ben hang with us again and create gorgeous memories for us to look at for years to come.Sent on 10/11/2019

Lucky to have found Ben!
Ben of Silver and Salt Photography was such an amazing part of our wedding day. We reached out to him after seeing some of his beautiful work on his website and Instagram. He chatted with us on the phone a couple of times before the big day to iron out details and plans. He was friendly, professional, and flexible throughout the entire process. On our wedding day he arrived on time and seamlessly became a part of the preparations. During the ceremony he took beautiful and creative photos that we absolutely love. We had a more casual reception at a local bar, where Ben captured so many great moments between our friends and family. He was always quick to respond to any calls or emails, and we received hundreds of gorgeous photos just a few weeks after our wedding. We would 100% recommend Silver and Salt Photography!Sent on 07/21/2019
