INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes. Ben and Taylor both have experience shooting weddings in a variety of lighting situations from very low to very bright light. Our equipment allows us to be flexible no matter what comes up.
Is your media preference film or digital?
digital
How many photographers do you work with?
All of our photography packages come with two photographers (Taylor & Ben!). 
 
 If you hire us for video only Ben will be your primary videography and Taylor will act as second camera person and production assistant as needed. 
 
 If you hire us for both photo AND video you'll get Taylor & Ben plus a super awesome videographer.
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). So far so good though.
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.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Most of our clients book one of our pre-designed wedding photography packages which range from 6 to 10 hours of coverage. Additional time can always be purchased a la carte.
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.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We don't really have a policy on taking breaks. If there is down time when nothing is happening we'll use it to run to the restroom or wolf down a snack but if there is something going on at all times we push through. A vendor meal isn't required in our contract but we greatly appreciate one and just ask that if you aren't able to provide one through your caterer you let us know before the wedding date so we can brown bag it.
Do you charge for travel?
Up to 90 minutes of one-way travel is included in our photography and videography packages. After that we can negotiate travel and hotel fees on an individual basis.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
6 weeks for weddings, two weeks for engagement sessions. 
 
 If you have a video highlight in your package Ben will deliver an online version through Vimeo 2 calendar months after the wedding and you will receive the physical DVD/Blu-Ray with all the bonus features by 3 calendar months.
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. We typically grab 1-2 awesome images per wedding to use in our portfolio as well.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes. Our wedding packages come with the 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.

INFO FOR VIDEOGRAPHY

Ceremony, DVD of Raw Footage, Edited Video, High Definition Video, Montage - Wedding Highlights, Multiple Cameras, Online Highlight Films, Pre-Ceremony, Reception

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 & Taylor are the most fantastic wedding photographers. From our first meeting with them, we just felt so at ease and it really showed in our photos. We took our pictures outside in crazy, humid, DC summer heat and we (and our whole wedding party) look downright comfortable in all of them. I've told all of my friends that they're not just photographers, they're magicians too! We were so happy to have Ben & Taylor be a part of our wedding. They're so easy to work with that it was the one part of our wedding that was literally zero stress. We couldn't recommend them enough!

Ben and Taylor were absolutely wonderful to work with. I couldn't have picked a better team of photographers! Their vibe made me and my husband feel very comfortable and at ease. It's not always easy to find a team of photographers that work well together and create wonderful photographs. Our engagement and wedding photos (and wedding album) came out stunningly! I highly recommend these two to anyone. :)

My wife and I got married on May 31, 2014. Hiring Ben and Taylor as our photographers was one of the best decisions we made in the entire wedding planning process. They were courteous, upfront about everything, and reachable whenever we needed them. They even walked through our venue with us so we could show them some of our favorite places ahead of time. And on the actual day of our wedding, Ben and Taylor were flexible to our needs, letting us know they understood that the schedule might change at the last minute. They even helped us come up with backup plans in case rain interfered with our pictures. (Thankfully, it didn't!)

They are recent newlyweds themselves, so they related to where we were coming from and helped capture the best day of our lives. We did a ton of research to find the best photographer out there and we found Ben and Taylor's prices to be extremely competitive. We were very satisfied with the finished product. We would (and will!) absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

They really worked with us, were flexible and are incredibly talented photographers. We appreciated how responsive they were through email. They gave us our pictures and wedding video to us a lot sooner than we expected too, which was a nice surprise. We highly recommend Ben Powell Photography for both pictures and video!

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.

They get my highest recommendation; we couldn't have been happier with their service. Read less
