My husband and I had our wedding at the Carlsbad Windmill. We found Ben through a review he had left of the venue and noticed he had some experience with that venue. We hired Ben to photograph our wedding and we are so glad we did! We worked with Ben from our engagement session to our wedding day. Ben is very detailed, he helped us breakdown the timeline which made our day run pretty smooth. He also directed us well and he worked well with Paul the second photographer that was part of the package. My husband and I absolutely love our photos and have received compliments from friends and family. We highly recommend Ben 💛!

The wedding of my dream was a success! Thanks to Ben for capturing it all. Anticipated to show my future kids one day, Lord willing. Also, I showed friends and family that couldn’t make it to the wedding and they were in awe of how beautiful it was. They said , I had a great photographer. Thank you Ben again for having a good eye and being super nice as well, we need more of those. :)
