At its core, photography closes the void between a moment passing by... and the way you remember it. That's our sweet spot, the thing we do best: from the look in his eyes during your first dance, to the way the flower girl smiles as she walks down the aisle, to the beauty of the name cards on the tables before guests arrive. Let's face it: there's nothing better than getting a front row seat to the best day of someone's life. We'd love to help preserve your memories, exactly like they play back in your head when you close your eyes and dream.
Film has the power to transport you back into a moment in time. It has the power to fill out the edges of your memories and make them come to life.
A wedding film - in its ideal form - captures the unique love story of two people, with music and cuts that time-capsule your wedding day for what it truly is: the best day of your life. Ben loves finding the story in your wedding. He loves piecing together distinct details - from the voice of a minister, to the heartfelt letter between bride and groom - to make a film unlike any other.
Pretty shots are nice, but they can only carry a wedding film so far. Ben wants to capture the way it felt on your wedding day, and more than anything, he wants someone watching your wedding film to fall in love… with love.
The greatest story you will ever tell in life is the story you write with family. The ones you spend every day with, the ones you laugh and cry with, the ones you parent... the ones you love. The bittersweet part of this story is how fast the pages turn. Forget year to year, your kids are basically different people within each passing season. From Christmas cards to just because, you're going to want to plot the journey. We'd love to play family historian, if only for a few hours.
Revamping your personal blog or website. Wanting to make your Saturday morning coffee date with your bestie just a little more extra. Album art, head shots, and everything in between. If you have an idea, I have a camera.
Being engaged is almost as good as being married - almost! Let's have some fun and commemorate the memories created between "will you marry me?" and "I do!"
So you graduated kindergarten, high school, college, or heck, driver's ed. You're a rock star. We have to tell everyone we know - better yet - we should do a photo shoot, so you can remember how perfectly you you were at this point in your life. All the accomplishments in your rear view (if we really are celebrating driver's ed graduation), all the potential and opportunity that awaits you along the unmarked path of your life's next great fork in the road... your next great adventure. You're going to want to remember this you.
You worry about getting to yes, let me handle everything else. Because let's face it, no matter how cool, calm, and collected you think you are, when you see them right before that moment, when they don't know the surprise ahead, you're going to become a blubbering mess. Good thing you contacted me. All the details, all the little things that need to be go perfectly right, most of all - the moment itself - I got your back.
Sometimes the story is truly in the details. The color palette, the complementary styles, the perfect symmetry of a centerpiece or plating of food. The details of the attendees, too. It's tough wrangling the memories of transient things like quality conversations, hearty laughs, and inside jokes. But we're more than up to the challenge. And we promise to fit right in. Only good vibes.
In the last three years, Ben has been extremely blessed to call “storytelling” his occupation. He’s traveled around the country, and around the world, chasing great ideas. Check out his 2019 Reel to get a small glimpse of the stories he’s been fortunate enough to tell.
