Is your media preference film or digital?

Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Taylor and Ben will always be the ones to shoot your wedding unless something horrible and unpredictable comes up (swine flu...mono...zombie apocalypse).
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
If you book a wedding package with us your wedding will be the only event we shoot that day. We may book multiple weddings in a weekend, but only if the events do not interfere with each other.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
You bet. But we've never needed to use her and, again, the circumstances would have to be pretty darn horrible before we don't make it to your wedding.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Multiple camera bodies, a wide variety of lenses, a lighting kit, etc. We come prepared for anything.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes.

Most of our clients book one of our pre-designed wedding packages which range from 6 to 10 hours of coverage.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
Yes. We charge our hourly rate, which is listed in our pricing guide, and will invoice you for any additional time within one week of the wedding date.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
45 days for weddings, 14 days for engagement sessions.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
We set up an online viewing gallery of your proofs.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
They will be up forever...or until the company who hosts your gallery goes under.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes, but you are allowed to print, share online, make copies, etc.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes. We may submit your wedding photos to a blog if your wedding was super awesome.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes. Our wedding packages come digital images. We deliver them to you via digital download.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. We will give you a link to an online viewing gallery that you can share with friends and family.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Our wedding packages that include albums come with premium flush mount albums that are completely customizable. We also offer parent books as well as a more affordable photo book option.
When will the client get the final album?
It depends mainly on how responsive you are during the proofing process. Our album vendor takes 3-5 weeks to produce the book after your order is placed.

Ben and Taylor were so wonderful! They have an engagement session included in their packages so when the wedding day rolled around my husband and I were more comfortable being in front of their cameras. I just got back a few sneak peek pictures from our wedding and they look AMAZING! We couldn't have picked a better team of photographers :)

Ben and Taylor did a phenomenal job photographing and taking video of our wedding. From the initial meeting through the delivery of the photos they were a pleasure to work with. They worked with us to customize a package that fit our needs and our price range. The day of the wedding they were extremely professional and did a great job of keeping us on a timeline and keeping the wedding party in order. The results were fantastic. We had a lengthy list of shots that we wanted and they managed to get every single one. As their time with us was winding down, they interrupted their meal to come get shots with the grandparents before they left, and didn't bat an eye at it. We now have unbelievable photos and an awesome video to relive the big day. Of all the vendors you deal with at a wedding, Ben and Taylor stood out as the best. They get my highest recommendation; we couldn't have been happier with their service.

Ben and Taylor were the videographers for our October 2013 wedding in Washington, DC. We decided to hire videographers after initially thinking we did not need our wedding recorded. Man, we are so happy that we changed our minds! The wedding videos (short and long versions) were breathtaking. They were awe-inspiring in quality. The wedding looked beautiful and it was obvious that everyone was having a good time. People who have seen the videos have commented how they look like movies, and we couldn't agree more. We are glad that we made this investment so that we can forever watch our video and be reminded of the day that we were united as one.

Ben and Taylor were flexible in creating a package that met our budget and were kind enough to welcome us into their home to discuss options and view their past work. After meeting them in person, there was no doubt that we would hire Ben and Taylor. We loved their professionalism and their chemistry was a plus! (You really can't beat having a husband and wife pair shoot your wedding!)

In light of the above, we highly recommend Ben Powell Photography!

Ben Powell Photography lived up to their hype. When they were able to shoot our engagement photos based on my husband's very tight Army leave schedule, we were hooked. For the wedding, Ben and Taylor not only studied my Pinterest account to get a feel for the style of photographs I wanted, but they arrived with an organized agenda, and executed it with perfect professionalism while still being personable. They knew the photos were my top priority that day and, even when the schedule turned unexpectedly cramped, they never lost their cool. Bonus: Taylor even carried my shoes for me when the walk down to our first-look photo shoot proved to be a particularly muddy one.

For the wedding, Ben and Taylor not only studied my Pinterest account to get a feel for the style of photographs I wanted, but they arrived with an organized agenda, and executed it with perfect professionalism while still being personable. They knew the photos were my top priority that day and, even when the schedule turned unexpectedly cramped, they never lost their cool. Bonus: Taylor even carried my shoes for me when the walk down to our first-look photo shoot proved to be a particularly muddy one. Read less

I love Ben and Taylor! Not only are their services amazing, but they are a delight to work with! During our last consultation, I mentioned a slow-motion video booth idea and Ben took it and ran. It was a hit at our wedding- all our friends and family had so much fun playing around and watching the slow-mo playback...and then we go the video back-- AMAZING. Ben had sorted through all the clips, picked the best ones, and put it all to sound..the result was unbelievable. I still watch it on a weekly basis ;) As for the photos- I'm still trying to pick and choose which ones to enlarge and frame. I love every.single.picture. Thanks again Ben & Taylor!

My wife and I wanted photographers who were down to earth, relatable, talented, communicative, and open minded, and Ben and Taylor excelled in every manner. We are thrilled with their work and will without a doubt recommend them to all of our friends and do business with them again. Ben and Taylor, we will be in touch!

We're very happy we chose Ben and his associates as our photography/videography team!

The quality of their work (especially their editing) impressed us, and their ability to shoot from multiple cameras ensured we'd get a lot of perspectives in our video. They were attentive, prompt, friendly, and genuinely easy to work with. Most importantly, they took our preferences and concerns about lighting/positioning/etc. very seriously, and the final product reflects that.

We highly recommend Ben and his team, and are thankful for all of their hard work!

We highly recommend Ben Powell Photography! They were incredibly professional but also made the process fun at the same time. I appreciate the time they took to come and visit our venues ahead of time and look for the best places to take photos. The extra time they took to do this ensured we had beautiful photos and that the time we spent on photos on our wedding day was organized and efficient. The quality of their photos are absolutely wonderful and their price is very reasonable. They made sure to ask our opinions on the style we liked and we love the finished product. Book Ben and Taylor - you won't be disappointed!!

Ben and Taylor served as photographers and videographers at our wedding and I have nothing but amazing things to say about them. The photos were stunning and creative, and the videos blew us and our family and friends away - they obviously put a LOT of hard work into everything and we will treasure it always. In addition, they're really nice to work with, very responsive on email, and their services are well priced. Highly recommend them!

This was hands down one of our favorite vendors that we used for our wedding. Ben did a phenomenal job of capturing all crucial moments from our wedding ceremony and reception, and weaving them into a magically creative 6 minute highlight real. It is definitely worth the money to invest in Ben because he will provide you with a gift you can watch over and over again that is much more telling then a simple photograph.

Ben & Taylor are the dream team when it comes to photography!!! They were the absolute picture of professionalism during my wedding: they made both me & my fiance (who are slightly camera-shy), AND my guests feel completely at ease, were very flexible with locations and times, and absolutely creative in the poses and shots that they captured! They were not disruptive to the ceremony or reception at ALL (I barely realized they were there) and all of my guests commented on how impressed they were with their professionalism.

Ben & Taylor have a great eye for lighting, spots for perfect shots, and really tailored my photos to what I wanted for my wedding day. They were constantly in contact with my (now) husband and I prior to the wedding to talk about schedules, picture ideas, and get a general feel of what story we wanted our pictures to tell. They even have a pinterest and facebook account where you can communicate desired photo ideas!

Lastly, these two are just so personable and sweet. My husband and I instantly liked them both for their honest and friendly demeanor and will definitely use them again for any photo opportunity we might need in the future. I'm also recommending them to ALL of my friends in this area who are getting married because they truly have amazing talent, run a reliable, professional photography service, and have REASONABLE prices for the D.C. area (they could definitely charge MUCH more for the quality of the services they provide!!!).

Thank you Ben & Taylor!!!!!! We'll be looking for pictures of your upcoming nuptials soon!

Ben Powell made my wedding a success. He had the perfect blend of gentleness and good humor mixed with strong leadership qualities. He had an efficient "get it done" attitude without being in the least bit pushy. He put all the family members and members of the wedding party at ease so that they were relaxed in the pictures. He was very flexible and adaptable, so he worked well with energetic young people as well as more elderly people whose mobility was limited. Countless people commented on how much they enjoyed working with him. He even helped the ceremony and reception run more comfortably by guiding me through the smoothest order of events. Ben is not only a very talented photographer, he is a sweet and calming force on the big day!! My husband and I loved having him there!

Ben and his fiance, Taylor were still getting their business out there when we used them for our engagement photos. We LOVED the results and booked them for our wedding. WOW what a year+ will do for an up and coming photographer. His work was spot on, his portfolio is growing every day. His attention to detail is impecable and his attitude will keep any bride not only at ease but on schedule. Ben listens to exactly what you want and delivers. He is speedy yet organized making sure to get every important shot. His assistant comes with his package and absolutely helps when you want the pictures to continue flowing but not seeing your groom before you walk down the aisle. It not only is effective in saving time but cost effective. I would highly recommend Ben for any type of photography, just go check out his portfolio and your decision will be made...

There is a saying that goes something to the effect of, "You get what you pay for". Well, not with Ben Powell Photography. He is extremely reasonably priced (especially for the Washington DC area) and yet his photographs and quality of work come across as if they should/could be priced a lot higher.

Ben Powell Photography did about as close to a perfect job as could be done. Ben did a great job capturing overall wedding photos and candid shots throughout the night that pretty much "tell the story" of how the night progressed.

I was amazed by the shots Ben was able to capture and the quality of the work itself. It seems like everybody who attended the wedding was photographed and included.

My husband and I hired Ben Powell Photography for our wedding in September 2011. Ben and his partner, Taylor, were awesome from start to finish.

Ben and Taylor were professional, laid back, artistic, flexible, and fun to work with. They made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, came with cool photo ideas, and listened to our input as well.

We got an engagement session with our wedding package and the photos with the engagement were beautiful!

The photos from the wedding were fabulous. Lots of great candids and formals.

Price-wise, you can't beat it. After looking at countless photographers starting in the $2000 and up range, we got discouraged. Thankfully, we found Ben offering a price that fit into our budget and whose photos could stand next to the $2000 price tag proudly.

Ben and Taylor rock. You won't be disappointed!

Ben Powell Photography handled both our engagement and wedding photography.

Ben was extremely knowledgeable when my (now) husband and I met with him and his assistant Taylor to discuss ideas and options beforehand. Neither of us had any concrete ideas, but as soon as we described a direction that we wanted to go in, Ben was immediately able to pick up on our style and help guide us to our desired outcome.
He made sure to mention options or alternatives that he had provided to other couples - both he and Taylor were very flexible when it came to our wants and needs.
He gave us his cost and contract at the end of the meeting and my husband and I were both very pleased with his pricing. It was definitely within our wedding budget.

On each respective day, both Ben and Taylor were extremely professional; they both arrived on time to the venues and had all the necessary equipment needed to do the job. They both remained completely professional during the duration of their jobs.

Ben has previously done both engagement and wedding photos and that was definitely apparent on each separate day; he knew exactly how to guide us and we didn't have to worry about any 'missing' poses or setups. His vision was totally in sync with ours.
Also, our wedding day was very hot and I really appreciated the fact that Ben didn't mind when my husband and I took breaks to drink water and cool off.

Our photography from each occasion was edited and 'retouched' within an exceedingly reasonable interval; especially considering there were so many photos. Ben was very patient with us when it came to our edits and took the time to make sure we were happy with what we got.

Ben was very prompt in his emails and text messages when he replied to me. His responsiveness was very reassuring amid the craziness of planning a wedding - I never had to worry about not receiving a reply.

I'd also like to add that both Ben and Taylor are very friendly and very very nice. They put both my husband and I at complete ease on each of our photo shoot days; but obviously, it was especially nice at our wedding, no awkwardness or feelings of distance - by this point we were all pretty comfortable around each other. Both he and Taylor are a perfect blend of professionalism and friendliness.

My husband and I are immensely happy with our wedding photos and overall experience with Ben Powell Photography. We definitely recommend them!

Ben and his crew came highly recommended from a family member. I needed to pull off my wedding without having the benefit of a large budget. My ceremony was beautifully captured by Ben Powell Media. The shots were original, and very creatively done. I can look at my wedding album and relive it all through the professional photographs that I have to cherish as a keepsake. I owe alot of the precious memories to Ben Powell Media for preserving them.There are pictures of people that I was not aware that came to the wedding only because they did not make it to the reception, and I was such a ball of nerves, that I didn't see everyone in the church. My focus was on getting down the isle and saying my vows on this day. So, Ben Powell Media captured so much that I was not able to see that day.
My favorite shot of all time is the black and white photgraph of my husband and I in the foyer of the church on the way down the isle after we said our vows and we were just walking and looking into the daylight streaming through the windows of the church foyer.

Ben Powell Photography was absolutely fantastic. Ben and Taylor put everyone at ease and were efficient, flexible, and professional.

The value can't be beat and I would easily recommend Ben Powell Photography to anyone looking for high-quality, professional wedding photography at a more than reasonable rate.

We loved working with Ben and Taylor. They were really nice from the first meeting and were easy going, so easy to work with during our wedding day/night. The photos turned out gorgeous. The only thing I would have done differently was picked out the location of where we were to take photos with our families. Not having designated that, we ended up in a small conference room that didn't do much for our pictures. So that's just a tip for other brides to think of. In terms of Ben Powell's services, I thought they were really great and very happy that we chose them. We would definitely recommend them to others.

Taylor & Ben are wonderful. They were very professional, outgoing, and patient. Our photos are beautiful, and the pricing was very reasonable. The only negative I can think of is that one of them is in the video of our wedding taking photos in front of us while we are saying our vows.

They were so kind to us, particularly on the day of our wedding, and helped orchestrate everything so that it would be picture perfect, like the cake cutting. We are so grateful and would definitely recommend them!
