Here are just a few more of the many reviews posted by Ben’s clients'.
- 100% Dependable!
One of the worst experiences that a couple can have, is when just weeks before the wedding date, the photographer cannot be found or informs the client he will not be coming to the wedding. In 20 plus years of being a professional photographer, Ben has NEVER missed an assignment or a job (Knock on Wood!). Ben is 100% dependable.
- Ben is a full-time professional
With the proliferation of digital cameras, many part-time, hobby photographers are attempting to shoot weddings on weekends. Some of these photographers - who have other full-time employment elsewhere the rest of the week - may find it difficult to give their full attention to their clients needs and deliver their services in a timely matter.
Ben and his staff of professionals finish editing the thousands of photos from each wedding, complete a purpose dedicated blog, create an online DVD montage and post the online proofs, all typically within 7-14 days after the wedding. All digital negatives on a custom DVD are mailed two-week after the wedding. Only a full-time, professional photographer can offer you service like that!
- Ben Teaches other Professional Photographers to do what he does.
Over the years, Ben has established himself as a successful, creative artist who is very technically savvy. Many professional photographers’ organizations hire Ben regularly to speak at their annual conventions throughout the country.
- Ben doesn’t just “Show Up”
Unlike most photographers that simply show up at a wedding and start shooting, Ben always does a “walk-through” or “preview” of all wedding locations (churches, parks, reception halls) with his clients prior to the wedding to determine the best angles and lighting needs to ensure that everything will be perfect for wedding day. Being a perfectionist and an ultimate professional, Ben wants to be fully prepared prior to your wedding day to make it the best that it can be.
- Ben is properly insured
Ben has 1M-liability insurance and a replacement policy for all photography equipment. Many venues, including properties owned by The State of California and its cities and municipalities (i.e. beaches, parks, lakes…etc.) as well as privately owned high-end hotels and county clubs, will not permit photographers to shoot unless proof of liability insurance is provided. One less thing for you to worry about! Ben is covered!
- Does Ben shoot with an assistant?
Nearly all “professional” wedding photographer will utilize one or more assistants for weddings. Ben has assistants, as well as several interns, who will assist during your wedding to make sure that everything runs smoothly and not a single moment is missed.
- Complimentary Reception Cards and Complimentary Online-DVD Montage
As part a of his service, Ben provides complimentary Reception Cards for the wedding guests, which inform them where to go online to view the photos of the wedding. Each card also bears a small photo of the wedding couple, making it a pleasant reminder of the festive occasion.
In addition, Ben and his staff spend up to 4 hours preparing a complimentary online DVD montage of the wedding. (Found at the end of each wedding’s individual blog entry) This way, friends and family can re-live the wedding day as often as they like, and those who were unable to attend can enjoy the sights of the day as well!
- Do you have professional and backup equipment?
As a professional photojournalist, Ben has several different top-of-the-line professional cameras and multiple lighting equipment set-ups to help him produce the best possible images for his clients under all circumstances. No ‘camera malfunction’ will get in the way of Ben providing you with the best wedding photos possible.
