Ben's approach to photography is so unique - not just in the way he shoots (he takes amazing pictures) but his commitment to know his subjects on a personal level, rather than just a "client" relationship. The way he captures the feelings, emotions and energy in his shots allow the viewer to truly re-live that moment.

Ben Elsass is a wonderful wedding photographer! I fell in love with his style! Ben has clear photographic talent and achieves creativity with each image. Not only is Ben an amazing photographer, he is a breeze to work with on the wedding day and during the entire process. It's important to feel absolutely comfortable with your photographer choice and he was the one vendor I didn't have to stress about. He arrived ahead of schedule the day of our event and stayed well into the reception, making sure to get all the important moments we requested - and a bunch my husband and I we not even expecting! The turnaround was also very impressive. Our images were given to us on time and turned out beautifully. I'm so happy we had such a great experience with our wedding photographer. I would choose Ben again in a heartbeat and plan on working with Ben as our family photographer in the future.

Our photo journey with Ben began with our engagement photos. We wanted unique engagement shots with the iconic Chicago cityscape in the background. Ben delivered. He made us feel so comfortable while guiding us through the session. Ben made the day a lot of fun. We were so impressed with all of our great images that we immediately booked him for our destination wedding in St. Maarten.

By choosing to have a destination wedding there were some elements that we couldn’t control. Our wedding photos weren’t something that we were willing to gamble on. On such an important day, it was nice to feel reassured that our photos would be incredible. He felt like one of the guests. Again, Ben helped us relax while capturing amazing shots that tell the story of the day. We get so many compliments on our photos. As I look at them they bring back the emotions from the day, and I can’t help but smile.

When our son was born, we couldn’t wait to have Ben take our pictures again. With each new phase in our life, Ben brings fresh ideas to capture these precious moments. I was really impressed with how patient Ben was with our newborn. We feel lucky to have found a photographer that does it all.

Working with Ben was a dream come true! Before planning my wedding I had heard so many 'photography nightmare' stories... I knew that this had to be one of the most important pieces of the puzzle. 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 :)

We used Ben for our wedding last June and were thrilled with his work. Ben's creativity, professionalism, and easy going demeanor helped to make our day relaxing and fun! Not to mention the amount of compliments we received on his amazing photos. None of the corporate photo companies could ever compare to the personal service we received from Ben.

Ben Elsass was my wedding photographer for my Malibu wedding and he did a fabulous job. Most importantly on the photos, they are beautiful. He was also excellent to work without throughout the planning process as he was quick to respond to any questions and very flexible with my needs. I'd recommend Ben Elsass Photography to anyone needing a photographer as he's very professional and most importantly, has a great eye for photography!

Choosing Ben to be our wedding photographer is a decision I would make again in a heartbeat. He was a true professional in every sense of the word: honored his word, stayed on task, stayed on time, and was engaging to our attendees. And very importantly, he was as invisible as a photographer at a wedding could be on the day of.  He captured absolutely FANTASTIC shots without being noticed. 

We asked for a photojournalistic style, capturing the candids vs. the formals, of us, our family, and friends in action. That is exactly what we got, but so much better than we could have dreamed of!

If you are looking for a photographer that has an artistic eye for capturing real people with real emotion, for a photographer that listens to what you want and delivers it, and for a photographer that is a pleasure to work with then Ben Elsass is the guy for you.

My husband and I are notorious for hating the pictures that are taken of us and never finding pictures where we are both happy with how they turned out. However, after working with Ben and receiving our pictures, we couldn't choose a picture we DIDN'T like! Every picture seemed to capture our essence as a couple. They were candid yet intimate, and every time I look at the pictures, all the feelings of that special day rush back to me.   They are just gorgeous!

Working with Ben was refreshing. Nerves were a little high and both people were a little camera shy, so I was worried that everything would feel staged and stifled.  It was quite the opposite. We were comfortable with Ben immediately and were able to be ourselves.  It was fun and natural and made the day even more special.

I know so many people who end up unhappy with their wedding pictures, and  I would have been pleased just to have found a few pictures to hang on my wall to commemorate my day. What a wonderful surprise to end up with hundreds of pictures that truly document our day, our love, and our new life together. Ben is extraordinary!
