In Their Own Words:
Since 2007 I have been a documentary style wedding photographer intent on capturing the unforgettable moments that make up that special day. It is an honor to be present as families and friends come together to celebrate the unity of loved ones.
My goal is to highlight the atmosphere and special details my clients carefully curate so they can enjoy their guests, confidant I will capture all the planned and unplanned magic of the day. You relax, enjoy and let me make sure your memories last forever.
I take on about 15 clients a year to be able to give each and every one of them the attention they need not only on the wedding day but also during the editing process. Please reach out with any specific questions, to check availability or to request a quote.
Favorite Moment During a Wedding: I love the beginning of the day and the reception. I feel as though this is when everyone’s true personalities come out. Things are not as stiff and formal and everyone is being their true self; their guard is down and they are just living their best day.
Favorite Vermont Activity: In the winter I love to snowboard and my main mountains are Sugarbush and Jay. In the fall and summer I enjoy getting out on my bike and exploring the swimming holes with my wife and kids.

Ben Hudson was the best wedding photographer we could have asked for. He’s a great communicator and helped us plan our wedding photo shot list and timeline in advance so when the wedding day arrived there was no stress! Most importantly, Ben has a very calm and reassuring presence which helped to keep us grounded throughout the day. We had rain for a large part of the afternoon and Ben quickly helped us problem solve and then found perfect times in the evening to take outdoor photos when the rain let up. He is a true artist – we initially chose him for his photography style and he exceeded our expectations. When we got our first set of photos from Ben a few days after the wedding they brought us right back into the moments from the wedding day and brought back all of the happiness from the day too. He even made some extra touch ups at our request! We would recommend him to anyone and are so grateful for our experience!
We cannot recommend Ben highly enough. He is very personable and easy to work with, ensuring that our needs were met at every step of the process. Not to mention, his photographs are stunning!
We booked Ben about six months in advance of our wedding date and we met with him over beers for about an hour in order to get a sense of our vision for the wedding and to see how we interacted as a couple. During the planning process, Ben checked in with us every so often and always made himself available to chat via email or phone with any questions we had.
On the day of the wedding, Ben was very respectful of our time. He had a perfect spot picked out for our first look and was able to finish our formal photos well before the ceremony began. Ben took amazing photographs during the ceremony, and took plenty of great candid shots to capture the essence of our wedding.
The turnaround for the finished photos was very quick. In addition to the gallery of photos on his website, we also received digital copies of all the photos he took. We couldn’t be happier with the finished products – they look beautiful! He captured our wedding day perfectly!
Ben is a very talented and personable photographer who knows how to capture all the emotions of a wedding in absolutely stunning photos. He has a great eye, is very personable, and he felt like family during our whole wedding experience. I would highly highly recommend Ben. He was easy to talk to, always available and quick to respond to any questions I had, and was very organized throughout the entire wedding planning and executing process. Thank you Ben for our wedding photos that truly captured our amazing special day!
Ben was incredible from the very first! Not only did he suggest a few lovely spots for us to check out for our outdoor elopement, but he offered to meet us and take us to them! And his work is absolutely stunning! I would highly recommend Ben for all of your photography needs; working with him is a pleasure!
Ben was incredible to work with from start to finish! As a couple who appreciates adventure and the outdoors, Ben set up the most perfect meet up/engagement photo shoot at Sugarbush Mountain where we went skiing and had an absolute blast! He does an incredible job with making clients feel welcome, capturing the silliest “small” but detailed moments, as also portraying the beauty of the venues/environment. He perfectly organized pictures, but also let a majority of them happen organically! We will certainly be working with Ben for more exciting life events in the future!
Ben made it all fun
My husband and I are thrilled with Ben’s work! He captured beautifully every emotion we and our guests felt on our wedding day. Very pleased with Ben’s documentary style approach to photography: the photos are completely immersive of the whole day allowing us to relive it indefinitely. Ben knew every moment to capture! Although we weren’t actually able to meet Ben before our wedding day, we didn’t feel anything to worry about. We sensed that we could just let him do his job. Both in the planning and in person, Ben made everyone feel so comfortable, especially my husband and me who do not love having our photo taken! Ben made it all fun. So grateful to have been able to work with Ben!
