How can wedding photography be an investment you ask? My answer is very simple. When I was 15, what started my photographic journey was getting to know my grandparents (all three of them) through my parents wedding album. Sadly, my grandparents passed on way before I was born and if I never saw their pictures I would have never asked who they where. My maternal grandpa was a WWII veteran who spent the war in a tank and at the same time documenting the war with his Zenith camera. He also spent 30 years after the war photographic weddings to make up for the death he has see during the war. My grandma, his wife, joined him. After getting married, my mom, my dad, my aunt and her husband have all shot weddings for years before I was born. I guess in a way you can say that photography was always a part of me, that its in my blood! I always wonder if I would ever discover this part of my families history if I never saw those photos in my parents wedding album and therefore never asked who they where! My mom said that on their wedding day, they paid for a separate wedding team because her dad was not able to shoot the wedding and it was a small fortune for them back then. I say, the investment was 100% worth it and I could not be more thankful!
While I do not list my New York and New Jersey area pricing on my website, you can easily obtain it by calling me, or dropping me an email through my contact form. I have many different collections to choose from. Collections begin with simple packages of time and digital files and increase to larger collections with albums, more time, and parent albums. A la carte pricing for destination weddings are available as well as rate information for our engagement sessions, portrait sessions, and anything else you might need! I make albums for many of our wedding clients and would love to create an album for you and your family as well!
I shoot all my events and employ only the best second shooters available when absolutely necessary. Every client is unique and precious and "one price fits all" is simply a thing of the past for most of my very discerning clientele. Some of my clients are local, most require travel, sometimes even half way across the globe. Some have very specific requirements and others still desire more. Therefore, I typically create custom collections and packages for most of my clients. If you'd like to obtain pricing details for your wedding or event, simply write me a quick email with you event details, your budget, including your contact information and I'll send you all the information that you need!
Most comprehensive packages include:
- Full day of coverage with myself and a second lead photographer.
- Online proofing of your photographs for one year
- Custom hand cut and assembled primary wedding book
- Full-resolution disk with images for printing and reproduction
- Parent Books and or Guest Books
- Video capture of your event or wedding day
- Fine Art - One of a kind prints on Museum quality Rag
Custom packages that best fit your needs can be arranged.
In order for you to gain the full experience of what these custom hand-made albums look and feel like, I highly recommend you schedule a time to meet. The meetings usually last around 1 hour. Don't wait, head on over to my contact page and drop me a quick email or better yet call! I love hearing my prospects on the phone.
“We have a large family and in the past used the so called high end photographers with 100 awards. What you where able to capture is simply not the same. I feel every image in my wedding book! Thank you for putting up with our super large family and guiding us every step of the way as if we where doing this for the first time. Our video is on a different level too and I take out our beautiful photos every time we have guest... now almost 3 years after. My siblings are so jealous but in a good way!”

“Having a mixed Moroccan & Bukharian Wedding we wanted to be respectful to both of our traditions and wanted to work with someone who understood the cultures. Benjamin and his team came back with more than what we where expecting. Our images are stunning! I would pay again just to experience what we did when we saw our image collection for the first time. Thank you Benjamin.”

“We found Benjamin randomly through Google and after our initial video call we knew he was the one! Benjamin took his time explaining his process and guided us every step of the way on planning the perfect wedding day. Most other places we approached just sent us a price sheet and a contract. He also personally took his time designing every aspect of our beautiful album. Out book is not just a collection of the prettiest pictures he took of the day but a story book of the atmosphere we felt thought the day!”
