      "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!"

      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.
