Ben was the photographer for my sister’s wedding and has done other photo sessions for our family; I couldn’t wait to have him photograph our wedding! The photos are absolutely amazing and we could not be happier! He took photos of every last detail; he even noticed details I forgot to mention like the stickers on the bottom of my shoes. We had talked about wanting to take some photos outside at locations other than the reception venue and church, he found the perfect spot and the photos are better than I could have even imagined! He put everyone at ease and is so great to work with which shows in the final product. We couldn't have found a better photographer to trust with capturing our wedding day memories, and we will cherish the photos forever!

Terrible!! Stay away from this photographer, well unless you don't mind them not returning your emails or phone calls. And if when you reach out for a final time with a certified letter of cancellation to not only not get an apology for his lack of professionalism and response but to basically be ridiculed for not having to try contacting him a 3 time to beg for him to answer questions about the most important day of your life .... Then sure give him a call! I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy.

Ben Berndt responded with the following comments:

I had missed 1 email and 1 voicemail over the course 5 months. When I received the letter in the mail over Easter weekend, I sent her an email asking to work things out and apologized for the missed voicemail two weeks prior. She was not willing to discuss anything, was very hostile towards me and had already found someone else to work with. I wished her well and decided to no longer engage in conversation with her. Please read my other reviews and come to your own conclusion on which is the more accurate portrayal of my services.

Ben is truly amazing at what he does. His photographs captured the spirit of our wedding (and engagement) perfectly! His attention to detail with lighting and natural poses is unsurpassed. He is able to see candid moments and get them on camera. He is flexible and an excellent communicator. Ben is also a "jack of all trades;" on our wedding day, he not only paid attention to the schedule of the day, he kept people informed and calm, made us laugh, and made us feel comfortable on camera. He even stepped in during a stressful moment of the evening and made the bride feel looked after. Ben is respectful with the pictures he takes and how he interacts. To top it all off, our pictures were ready for us when we got home from our honeymoon (one week)! We recommend Ben to all Brides and Grooms!

Our one year anniversary is coming up and I was just looking back at our wedding photos! They are just what we wanted and a wonderful way to remember our day! It's true, everyone says, "your wedding day is a such a blur"! I'm SO glad we have the wedding photos to go back to and remember the details of every moment!
We can't thank Ben and his assistant photographer enough for capturing all our special moments with family and friends. Especially the last photo of the night! Ben had packed up and was walking away from the venue when my friends and I were posing for a cellphone picture around the 'getaway' car. Ben turned around, got his camera out and snapped a high quality photo for me as well! After SO many hours on his feet, I couldn't believe he'd stop and do that! That's just the type of guy he is!!
Both Ben and the extra photographer were so warm, calm and FUN! We've recommended him several times and we can't wait to see him at the next event!

We can't say enough things about how amazing our entire experience was working with Ben. Extremely organized, high attention to detail, professional yet extremely down to earth and relatable. From the first meeting to talk about his work and the contract, we were impressed by how well organized and passionate he is about his work and business. We had a blast when it came to our engagement photos this past fall at a local winery. We included our two Siberian huskies in a handful of the photos and while I was skeptical whether they would turn out, we were blown away by how well they were captured! When it came to our wedding photography, we relied on Ben to help us with the timing of the days events as well as time allotted for the more formal photographs. He made our wedding day extremely easy, simple and even fun for my husband who was dreading the thought of smiling for photos for hours on end. He was fun to work with and we told a ton of jokes and funny stories so I made all of our smiles 'real' and unforced. A huge plus for us was the amount of time it took to get all of our photos back from Ben - one week!!! While I know this extremely rare and had a lot to do with our engagement/wedding taking place in late October/late January, we were thrilled to see the photos so soon after. We can't say enough positive things about Ben; organized, professional, timely, and just fun to work with. The only negative for us is that we don't have any upcoming life events that we can book him for!

My husband and I are so happy that we had Ben as our wedding photographer. We was flexible to work with but very organized. It was obvious that he knew what he was doing. He was very professional but easy-going. He was easy to communicate with. We could not be happier with our decision to hire him.

Ben is one of the most well prepared and professional photographers I have ever worked with. He captured our wedding day start to finish with amazing photos, and he also helped us stay on track throughout the day. When a button popped off one of my groomsman suits, he seriously had a sewing kit and sewed it back on. He had water for us when it got hot and reminded us throughout the day about what was important. We've recommended him to our friends dozens of times and he's now done countless weddings for our friends and family. All of which have enjoyed his professional services. His work hangs on our walls to this day and we couldn't have been more thankful that he was our wedding photographer.

Over a year later and I'm still so excited about our experience with Ben. Ben has a fun personality, but also has the talent and skill to back it up. At our first meeting, he came well prepared- he had printed off the time of sunset and location/angle of the sun on our wedding day! He had great ideas of how to pose, made us feel comfortable, and truly added to the memories of our big day.

We really enjoyed the time we spent with him, which is so important because your photographer spends quite a bit of time with you at your wedding! Ben was always responsive to emails and even sent us a few "preview" pictures the night of our wedding. It was so fun to wake up the next morning and see a few pictures in our inbox. The rest of the pictures were then edited and sent to us just a few weeks later- right on schedule. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for an awesome wedding experience and beautiful pictures!

Ben was absolutely phenomenal to work with for our engagement photos and on our wedding day. We can't stop raving about him to everyone we talk to and our family and bridal party have made so many comments about how much they enjoyed working with him. Ben is so knowledgable, flexible and just an all around great person to work with -- he made sure to get all of the photos from my "must have" list while also suggesting ideas for other fun pictures too. I am so anxious to see how they all turned out and have no doubt in my mind they are going to be absolutely wonderful. I can't say enough good things about Ben -- I will definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer and will book him again for other photo sessions. He was just the type of photographer I was looking to find at an affordable price.
