Today we’d like to introduce you to Ben Law.
Hi Ben, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today.
My journey with photography began in a rather nerdy yet honest way. When I was in high school, I thought that Apple computers were the coolest thing (and I still do). One aspect that drew me to them was the beautiful scenery of the wallpapers. After getting to the point where I was changing my computer background daily and trying to find the next coolest or most beautiful image, I decided I wanted to try to make my own. Not long after this, I began exploring photography with my dad’s old film camera, and I was immediately hooked. Over time, I moved on to digital photography (while continuing to shoot film on occasion), and began capturing people and events. Some of those first things included my fellow classmates’ senior portraits and high school sports or other events. Over time as I grew more comfortable behind a camera, capturing meaningful images of people became paramount for me and is the most inspiring thing for me today. My wife and I capture couples, weddings, families, and more now, and we love getting to meet new people and create portraits for them that are timeless, romantic, and emotional.
We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Growing from hobbyist to a professional has been a fun journey for sure! It’s always special when you get to do for work something that you love, and I feel very blessed to be able to do what I love. With that, I’m always looking to grow and to be better with every new event or session. There is a lot of hard work involved, but I’m thankful to get to take on challenges that will help me grow as a person and as an artist.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
My wife and I love connecting with and capturing people. Our goal is to make people feel connected with each other. Through engagement and wedding photography, we are focused on the incredible gift of marriage more than just planning a big event with ‘photo ops.’ Through photos, we want our couples, seniors, and families to know how valued and loved they are. We care that people are celebrating their love for one another, that new chapter in their life, or their family bond, and we love capturing that magic connection with photos. Life is full of so many incredible moments both big and small, and we think that photographing those moments is so important and allows you to re-live the best moments of your life no matter how big or small.
Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
We value connecting with people to get to know them as friends and not just clients.
