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.

Absolutely recommend Ben!!
We had the absolute best experience working with Ben as our wedding photographer. He could not have been more friendly, professional, warm and enjoyable to work with. While planning, we communicated over email/facetime and although we actually only met in person on the morning of the wedding, we felt like we knew him already! He had a lovely way of giving advice and recommendations, while still being totally enthusiastic about discussing our ideas and questions. The day after our wedding, multiple people mentioned how wonderful he was, and how impressed they were by him. And then of course, the photos are gorgeous-- he was able to capture both the big and the small moments in such a beautiful way. He is just the nicest and most talented person -- and working with him was a highlight of our planning process. Would recommend him to anybody in a heartbeat!Sent on 11/18/2019

Great photographer to timelessly capture your wedding
Ben is an amazing photographer and person. He was extremely easy to work with, barely noticeable in the background and was able to get the most amazing pictures of our wedding. We would recommend highly recommend him!Sent on 11/23/2019

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
