Bend Oregon Wedding Photographer
      Elopement Photographer in BendOregon

      Bend, Oregon and Nashville, Tennessee Elopements

      We specialize in small wedding and elopement photography in Bend, Oregon and Nashville Tennessee. While we're photographers who split time between Central Oregon and Nashville, we're ready to hit Mexico, Spain or Bali. Many plans in 2020/21 had to be changed and our hearts were broken for many of our clients. Some of our clients pushed forward, scaled back, and had micro-weddings anyway and we LOVED the intimacy that allowed for. While we're ready for that C19 word to be less of a topic in the coming months, we're excited for micro-weddings and elopements to continue. Regardless, we're ready to tell your story. Friends, the best is yet to come. Bring it 2022/23 and beyond.

      "Recently, the Oregon Bride Team came across a wedding photographer. Thirty minutes went by and we still had our jaws on the floor. There's something to be said about original, creative men like Benjamin Edwards when you can look at his work and say, he loves his job…  We want to see more weddings captured like this. Go book the guy!"

      "Benjamin makes art. His photographs are worthy of being turned into poster-size prints that belong in an exhibit, with or without the humans in them. But moreover, he is the kindest person we've met in Bend. If you're fortunate enough to shoot with Benjamin, you'll end the day with an art piece and a new friend."

They will be fresh and exciting. He captures precious moments in that lens that you didn’t even realize took place. His eye is top notch. He’s warm and kind and a delight to have as your photographer. I love his work"

      "Ben shot our wedding in November 2015. We had a destination wedding so we often Skyped with Ben as well as emailed often. Honestly it was the greatest experience. Ben not only captures every moment beautifully, but you can truly see his passion as he works. To say he is an artist would be an understatement."
