“I capture what I feel. For me, the power of emotions in a scene is more important than artistic vision. Style becomes secondary and sometimes can even be constricting when what you're after is the inherent beauty of the moment itself. Close your eyes and try to remember your life's first significant event. What you see are the images I try to capture. My tools help me craft these beautiful occasions in a creative way.”
My name is Benjamin Kohen, I am a New York based wedding photographer and cinematographer specializing in documentary style of wedding capture. A big bulk of my current clients include families with wide-ranging Jewish backgrounds and traditions. In the past few years, my work has attracted hundreds of discerning clientele in and around New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Israel, and even Shanghai China, looking for creative and timeless wedding photography with a modern appeal. I am best known for my composition, documentary-style capture of natural moments and my heartfelt dedication to my clients and their wide-ranging religious customs and traditions (Ashkenaz, Sephardic, Hasidic, Reformed, and Conservative religious background are all welcome) Since opening my studio in 2011, I have photographed hundreds of weddings across the United States, Canada, Israel and beyond. For each of those weddings, I strive to create beautiful photographs of naturally occurring moments, stunning portraits, delicate detail images, and dynamic images of Chuppas (Jewish Wedding Ceremony), Badekens, Husson’s Tish, and everything in between.
In 2015, I was also honored to have been accepted into an Internationally renowned and critically acclaimed Wedding Photojournalist Association and the Artistic Guild of Wedding photojournalists. The two associations that uphold the highest standards in the industry for its exclusive list only five thousand, hand-picked photographers from all over the world. Since becoming a member of both WPJA and AGPJA, I have been awarded multiple times in various categories, including Emotions, Ceremony/Chuppah, the bride and groom portraits and wedding details. I have also been privileged to be on the pages of Mishpacha Magazine, a Jewish publication focusing on Jewish Lifestyle and Culture as well as multiple features on Jewish Brides the de-facto blog for everything Jewish Weddings and Brides. Since 2016, I have once again been privileged to become multiple award recipient of internationally recognized WEDAWARDS AND WEDISSON both respected photography competitions as well as the Best of The Knot for 2021.
It’s always a gratifying feeling to be granted awards and showered with accolades from across the globe however my drive to work with families across the United States and the world on their weddings and other creative projects is not dictated by the number of awards I get. The goal always was and will be to provide the best experience a bride and groom can possibly get.

He was with us all the way till the end of our wedding and was helpful scheduling and making sure we have a wedding day and not a day full of run around and hassle. The images we walked away with are so us and what we experienced on our wedding day. We where very happy with our experience and recommend Benjamin and his amazing team to everyone we know. Ooh and you should see out album. It's to die for!!”

“We can't tell you enough how lucky we feel to have you document our wedding even though its been 3 years now. Thank G-d we didn't jump to conclusions with you based on what we experienced calling other photographers before you. Its been 3 years since our wedding and Ken and I still look at our album on our anniversary and smile. Your ability to capture moments is simply a girt. Thank you for sharing that gift with us.”

I am so glad you convinced me to use certain shots in our album and thank you for including additional images we didnt even pay for! Never in a million years would I have thought that a photographer will build my albums personally. I fell I have a gem in my hands every time I look at it. Thank you again!”
