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 is an amazing photographer! Ben was responsive, kind, friendly and his talent is out of this world. We have been told by multiple people our engagement photos are the best they have ever seen – and our wedding photos look like they are straight out of a magazine. On our wedding day, Ben was helpful and supportive – documenting our day in an authentic, creative way. During the planning process, he was able to offer ideas and support. Our family and friends keep asking to see the photos from our wedding, and they are just as impressed as we are. We recommend Ben to everyone that we can. Hiring Ben was one of the best decisions we made – don’t hesitate, ask him to be a part of your special day! We are so lucky to have worked with him.

Ben was the best choice we made during our wedding planning process. If he’s available for your date, book him immediately, you’ll be so glad you did.

Many things drew us to Ben’s work. We loved his documentary style, his ability to capture emotions and feelings so vividly, and his keen eye for capturing the small non-scripted moments throughout the day. All of these things came true, but we got so much more than that from working with him. Ben was a partner in helping us plan our wedding, helping us source other vendors (all of whom were incredible), figure out timelines, and just being a friend as we went through the process. Ben helped keep us calm and grounded through the chaos of wedding planning.

We were lucky enough to get to work with Ben for our proposal, engagement, and wedding photos. Every single time his photos left us speechless. He was able to capture our love and also our personalities and quirks in ways that felt so true to us. As two people who feel very awkward in front of the camera, Ben photographed us in ways that made us feel beautiful, seen, and authentically ourselves. And not just us! When we shared our wedding album with guests everyone raved about how amazingly Ben captured them and how excited they were to get prints.

Ben is an incredibly talented photographer and even better person. There’s no one better to work with.

We would & do recommend Ben every single time someone is looking for a wedding, event or family session photographer. We were so confident in his art, we’ve been recommending Ben for weeks, and had not even seen our finished album. We would a million times, over and over pick him again.

We are absolutely thrilled with our engagement session & our wedding day celebration photographs. From the moment we connected with Ben, he was responsive, had amazing ideas, was flexible, and honest with us on our time frame of the day.

On the day of our wedding his poise, professionalism, and his genuine kind soul made it so easy for him to just blend in with the fam, chatting away as he did his thing. Our families absolutely adored him. His calm & steady presence helped make the day flow seamlessly with zero stress or worry.

He captured our day beautifully from start to finish and we are so grateful to have exceptional photos to look back on for years to come. He has sequenced them wonderfully.

And then there is his eye for those dramatic wide framed, elegant, intimate, and playful photographs that are artistic, stunning, and one of a kind…these are what immediately had us drawn to Ben’s work; it’s pure magic. Those shots will have us swooning for the rest of our lives, and we cannot wait to choose our favorite and hang them on our walls to be displayed & enjoyed every single day. He captured our love enchantingly.

Don’t even second guess it, go with Ben!

You will not regret it!

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!

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!

Incredible!

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!
