"Ben shot our engagement pictures in Chicago last fall, and traveled to shoot our wedding weekend in Northern Michigan this past September. Everything was amazing- his photography, his professionalism and efficiency throughout the process, and his calming presence the day of the wedding. Many people that have seen our pictures have stated that they are some of the most unique and beautiful wedding pictures they've ever seen! I highly recommend Ben Elsass Photography for engagement & wedding photography, and I'm sure I'll be calling him to photograph our children when the time comes :)”

"From the first pre-hiring meetings to the end of the wedding night, Ben kept in touch with us regularly and made sure to ask the right questions to ensure he knew what we wanted. He took the time to scout the location beforehand, so he came with professional-level confidence on the day-of. He asserted himself when needed to, but blended invisibly into the background to capture more intimate moments. The variable weather made us worry, but we shouldn't have; Ben handled it all with ease. Ben has a great eye for and is superlatively talented. We're still getting compliments! We will treasure them for years to come.”

"Hiring Ben was the first decision we made when planning our wedding and I didn't regret it for a second. Ben's style tells the story of your day and isn't just countless stiff, posed photos. I tend to be a little awkward when I know someone is taking my picture so it is really a testament to Ben's work that I love our pictures and I can see so much of our personalities in them. We have received countless compliments from our friends and family on our pictures and I often joke that I am going to keep Ben on retainer for all future photography purposes. Hiring Ben was the easiest wedding decision we made!”

"We booked Ben for our wedding and it was the best decision we made! He was professional but also easy-going! He made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and knew just what to say to make us laugh! Ben discussed with us how the day would go, where we should take pictures on the grounds of our venue, when the lighting would be perfect, and if we needed to take the pictures indoors due to rain.  He kept us on schedule to make sure we got through all the pictures so we could spend the evening with our guests. We were blown away with the work he did, and the photos he took are such a great reminder of our magical day!"

"We booked Ben 2 years before our date. Throughout the planning process, Ben was so helpful with any questions or concerns we had. Ben went above and beyond our expectations. He was so fun to be around on our wedding day and was always quick to calm the few nerves that I had! Also, I trusted Ben to decide on locations for our bridal party photos. It was apparent that he knew best when it came to lighting and best locations. This was honestly one of the best decisions that I made, because our photos turned out to be BEAUTIFUL. If I could go back and plan my wedding over again, booking Ben is the first thing I would do!”

"Ben is an amazing photographer with an eye for unique scenery and beautiful, creative shots. Our wedding pictures could not have turned out any better, and he truly captured the essence and feeling of our wedding day. He was so easy to work with, and made us feel relaxed and at ease from the first time we met him. Ben also blended in so well during the wedding and ceremony. He was really careful about giving us space without missing any important moments. His presence was not overbearing in any way possible, and was never "in the way" of guests being able to view special portions of the night. We'd recommend Ben to anyone!”

"Ben was absolutely amazing to work with! His photography style is very original and he captures very unique wedding photos, ones that are timeless. We looked at a lot of photographers but Ben really stuck out... coming from two people who are not very comfortable in front of the camera, Ben really knew how to make us laugh and have fun. Ben was super organized, kept our timeline to a T and was always available for the many questions that came up as we planned our wedding. We cannot say enough great things about Ben and his photography & are so blessed to have had the opportunity to work with him!”

"Working with Ben was a dream come true! I knew Ben and had seen his work but it wasn't until I started working with him that I realized what a good decision it was to hire him. Ben made the process easy and made me feel like we were covering all bases, giving me increased confidence as I planned the wedding (without a coordinator and during a busy time of my life!). The end result was pure magic. As every couple will tell you... the wedding goes by in a flash... looking at Ben's pictures takes me and my husband right back to that amazing day! ”
