I may be a little bit geeky, and my wife describes me as an "infuriatingly positive person". I am smitten with rock climbing, science fiction, surfing, travel, and being invited into the inner circle of a family on a wedding day. I am one of the only wedding photographers in the world shooting entirely on the highest end camera system and lenses in the world, the Leica.
I am a hopeless romantic and thrive on the intricacies of a wedding day. My own wedding was the most overwhelming (fun!) experience of my life, and I treat every celebration with that gravity. I will tell the story of your day with sensitivity, artfulness, and attention to every detail.
I work in a photojournalistic, candid and unobtrusive style throughout the day (apart of when we are making portraits or family formals)
I would love to learn more about YOU!

My husband and I cannot fully express how wonderful Ben was as a wedding photographer. From the moment we met Ben through receiving the photos after the wedding, he was nothing but professional, responsive, seriously talented, and easy-going.
Before the wedding, Ben took ample time to meet with us in person and communicate via email about what we hoped for in our wedding photographer. We wanted mainly candid photos with quite a few family and friend portraits as well. I've been in many weddings where we spent a significant amount of time taking formal portraits. With Ben, we seemed to finish the portraits in under 25 minutes, which was extremely impressive seeing as my side of the family alone has around 100 members. He somehow was able to give direction well while also being laid back about the craziness that comes with capturing photos with so many aunts, uncles, cousins, kids, etc. The portraits came out beautifully, and his candids were phenomenal too. Our wedding ceremony was in a church, and Ben was respectful and completely unobtrusive while still capturing photos from all angles. Our priest reiterated the same to us post ceremony. At the cocktail hour and reception, Ben managed to take photos of all guests--and we had around 180 of them. From our getting ready photos, to walking around Boston Common before the ceremony, through the reception, Ben was fun to be around, and made us feel even more relaxed.
We were drawn to Ben's photos because of his photojournalistic approach. He has a unique ability to capture both genuine moments between people at weddings and also artistic shots. I loved the way he played with the lighting in many of our photos. Everyone who has seen our photos has been blown away by them. My husband and I are having a tough time choosing our favorites.

Ben (and his wife, Connie) were our wedding photographers for our March wedding in Boston, MA. My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Ben, both in the planning stages as well as on the day of. From the moment we first started chatting with Ben, he was professional, fun, energetic, responsive and easy going. He offered creative suggestions and was extremely helpful in helping us create a photography timeline to ensure we captured all of the moments we wanted. On the day of, Ben and his wife were such warm, cheerful and calming presences. We had heard beforehand how important it was to hire a photographer whom you get along with since you spend a lot of the wedding day with them and we couldn't have been happier with Ben and Connie. They are truly wonderful and talented people who produce spectacular photos! We highly recommend them!

I knew as soon as I saw Ben's portfolio that I needed him to shoot my wedding. His photos are absolutely stunning. He is a true artist, you can count on him to capture every exciting, emotional, and fun moment without even noticing he's there. We did NOT want the cheesy posed photos you often see with traditional wedding photographers. Ben's approach to wedding photography is exactly what we were looking for. I have only seen a sneak peak of our gallery as it's only been 3 weeks since the wedding, but every single one I've seen are gorgeous, I can't wait to see the rest!
Aside from gorgeous photography, Ben is a pleasure to work with! He makes you feel as if you are the only client he is working with. He is punctual, professional, super nice, and makes you feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. I'm so pleased to have had him shoot my big day and am absolutely thrilled to have been his muse for a day. Highly recommend!
