  • We had the absolute pleasure of working with Ben for our August wedding this past summer. I can not speak more highly of him. I had originally seen his work and was drawn to his beautiful photography that are truly works of art. We were looking for someone for someone with more of a photojournalism and fine art style to capture images from the day. Our photos came out so beautifully and we could not be more pleased. Ben was also so professional and patient when talking me through options of how the day could be structured. He helped us pick out some fantastic locations for portraits and our first look. At moments you could say Ben was my therapist during a very stressful wedding planning endeavor, bringing expertise and a calm energy to the entire process. My friends and family also commented on how great he was to work with. I’m looking forward to finding an excuse to host another event in the future just so we can have Ben hang with us again and create gorgeous memories fo... Read more

  • We had the absolute best experience working with Ben as our wedding photographer. He could not have been more friendly, professional, warm and enjoyable to work with. While planning, we communicated over email/facetime and although we actually only met in person on the morning of the wedding, we felt like we knew him already! He had a lovely way of giving advice and recommendations, while still being totally enthusiastic about discussing our ideas and questions. The day after our wedding, multiple people mentioned how wonderful he was, and how impressed they were by him. And then of course, the photos are gorgeous-- he was able to capture both the big and the small moments in such a beautiful way. He is just the nicest and most talented person -- and working with him was a highlight of our planning process. Would recommend him to anybody in a heartbeat!

  • It's hard to put into words how incredible Ben really is. From our first email inquiry, to the delivery of our photos, Ben was beyond a pleasure to work with. Of all the varying components of our wedding, he was by far the most professional, and was thus the last thing I felt worried about. He was meticulous in his approach to understanding what we wanted, while staying true to his style (which was perfectly aligned). He asked thoughtful questions, and took careful notes about the varying dynamics of the event, and the people attending. He seamlessly integrated with our crazy families and friends, so much so that everyone thought he was a lifelong friend who just happened to be a photographer. His eye for detail, his calming and encouraging energy, and strong sixth sense for knowing exactly where to be became so palpable in the final product. He put everyone at ease, and even got my entire family to smile at the same time (this is a HUGE feat). Of course, everything about a weddin... Read more

  • Ben of Silver and Salt Photography was such an amazing part of our wedding day. We reached out to him after seeing some of his beautiful work on his website and Instagram. He chatted with us on the phone a couple of times before the big day to iron out details and plans. He was friendly, professional, and flexible throughout the entire process. On our wedding day he arrived on time and seamlessly became a part of the preparations. During the ceremony he took beautiful and creative photos that we absolutely love. We had a more casual reception at a local bar, where Ben captured so many great moments between our friends and family. He was always quick to respond to any calls or emails, and we received hundreds of gorgeous photos just a few weeks after our wedding. We would 100% recommend Silver and Salt Photography!

  • Ben is an absolutely amazing photographer! He was so easy to work with, and captured everything I had hoped he would. His work (photojournalistic and candid) was exactly what I wanted and his results did not disappoint! I have already received so many compliments from family and friends on the photographs. I love that Ben was able to capture special moments, without being intrusive. I would highly recommend Ben, and am already looking for an excuse to work with him again!

  • Ben has such a talent for capturing real, genuine moments from completely unexpected angles. That's what immediately drew me in when I first came across his portfolio. He will absolutely get all the obligatory wedding shots - family portraits, decorations, the hanging dress, the preparation - all of that. But what I love the most about his style is his unique perspective and ability to infuse his images with this joyful, even playful, energy. The other really huge thing for me was how professional, organized, patient, and flexible Ben is. My wedding was planned in somewhat of a short timeframe, so a lot of decisions were made last-minute and kind of quickly (at least it felt that way for me!); and Ben was a huge help the whole time. I relied on him to help with our photography timeline a lot, and I also didn't have a wedding planner. So when it came to day-of stuff, I really had to just trust that he knew what he was doing, where he needed to be when, etc. There wasn't ever one snag... Read more

  • It's so hard to find the words to describe just how wonderful Ben has been since we signed our contract. He went above and beyond all expectations—and mine were very, very high. His style is dramatic, capturing every detail and moment with an artistic perspective you'd see in an art gallery. He was responsive with inquiries ranging from last-minute scheduling to my body-image concerns. Most importantly, his personality and friendliness made being in front of the camera the easiest part of our day. I cannot possibly recommend Ben enough. Seriously, stop looking for a wedding photographer.

  • Ben was amazing to work with; we are so thrilled we chose him to photograph our wedding. Not only are his photos incredible and unique, but he made us feel so comfortable during the engagement shoot and wedding. He always lightened the mood when we needed to relax, and floated around the background of the wedding perfectly. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

  • We are so happy that we chose Ben to photograph our wedding. I had been a bridesmaid in a wedding that he photographed a couple years ago and saw the results, so I was already quite confident going in. He was so friendly and calm, which was a very welcome presence throughout the chaos of the wedding day. He was responsive to emails/questions throughout the process, and, most importantly, the photos came out amazing!! I would recommend Ben to anyone in the area.

  • What can we day about Ben to do him justice? From our very first meeting he understood us as a couple and understood the tone of our wedding. His photojournalistic style is exactly what drew us to his work and seeing the final product we honestly couldn't be happier. We had posed photos in there for our families (which he rocked!), but his candids are out of this world. And he did all this basically without being seen. We had a restaurant wedding so it was crucial for us to work with someone who can photograph indoors without any major landscapes or backgrounds. The details he was able to capture were breathtaking. He's the first recommendation we make when our friends get engaged!

  • Ben was absolutely the best vendor we had at our wedding (and we had an awesome wedding!) He was immediately calming, incredibly organized, and completely unobtrusive. My wife had an anxious morning of getting ready, but once he arrived he immediately relaxed her, and he helped her push away the anxiety and start enjoying the day with her bridesmaids. After the first few formal photos, I don't think I "saw" him once, but he must have been everywhere at once because the photos and angles he took were beautiful. The photo journalism thing isn't just shtick. He really does capture some incredible moments throughout the day that I didn't even realize were happening. Some of his photos are beautiful works of art, and some photos are captures of amazing moments with friends. He was a pleasure to work with on the run-up to the wedding. He was responsive and friendly, and acted as a time keeper to make sure we didn't over-run our photo taking time. He has a great eye for photo locations. We ... Read more

  • I could not recommend Ben enough. My wife and I firmly believe he was worth every penny. Ben is a genuine and personal person who really cares about his clients and your wedding day. You can see it in his work and hear it when you talk to him. Throughout the process he was immediately responsive with questions we had and gave us advice on the wedding that went beyond the photos. For example he was integral in us creating our timeline for the day. On the day of the wedding he was timely and worked tirelessly throughout the day/night. His outgoing and friendly personality really allowed us to be comfortable throughout the day while we were getting ready and prepping for the wedding. Most of the time I didn't realize he was there and when he was around or wanted us to pose for portraits he had a very calming and easygoing presence. A couple of our guests commented that they could tell we had an amazing photographer because they barely noticed him throughout the day despite the fa... Read more

  • Our pictures came out gorgeous, and Ben was incredibly easy to work with. We planned our wedding from out of town (we got married in MA but live in the DC metro area), so we were initially a little stressed about finding a photographer, especially since we opted not to hire videographer. Ben put us at ease from the very beginning, and set up a Skype meeting to answer all our questions, and get to know us. He was very informative about his style and the process for getting set up, and made timeline suggestions based our interests and schedule. He was very responsive. He also was very generous with his time, staying on towards to end of our engagements in the north end to capture the finale of the fisherman’s feast in the north end. On the day of, he took great shots of door games (a Chinese wedding tradition) and was very efficient at capturing all of the group portrait shots, which gave us a lot more time to enjoy our guests. He also took some really beautiful landscape and photojou... Read more

  • Ben (and his wife, Connie) were our wedding photographers for our March wedding in Boston, MA. My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Ben, both in the planning stages as well as on the day of. From the moment we first started chatting with Ben, he was professional, fun, energetic, responsive and easy going. He offered creative suggestions and was extremely helpful in helping us create a photography timeline to ensure we captured all of the moments we wanted. On the day of, Ben and his wife were such warm, cheerful and calming presences. We had heard beforehand how important it was to hire a photographer whom you get along with since you spend a lot of the wedding day with them and we couldn't have been happier with Ben and Connie. They are truly wonderful and talented people who produce spectacular photos! We highly recommend them!
