    Our Special Wedding Photographer

    We had our wedding last December 2011. My wife and I are from davao but are working in Norway. Me and my wife started planning on our wedding since 2010. We decided to go for a real good quality for our photographer because it is one of those things that will document the whole wedding. We wanted to have photos that we can enjoy looking at again and again for the rest of our lives. I have heard about Benjamin Young Photography because I am an enthusiast about photography but I have never met him in person. Not before we traveled back in davao a month before wedding day. Yes, I only contacted Ben through email/Facebook months ahead before our wedding . He was very accommodating even through email and replies as soon as he has the time. When we met- we met at his studio. If you are considering him as your photographer and meeting him in person, be sure you have ample time because I will guarantee you, you will have a good quality time talking and planning with him for your wedding day. We also had him during our prenuptial shoot. It was our first photography session with him and we were worried about how we should pose, what we will wear and where will our location be. He provided our location which we were really satisfied with. He knew the area very well and knew people working at the location. Poses - hmmm this was the very first thing we noticed with Ben- he is an expert on how he let his subjects pose. This man is so amazing on how he places his subject's hands, head, feet, where to look at, eyes open or close, everything, you'll be a supermodel in one day. Be it as awkward as it seems sometimes, just follow what he says and by the time you go and check that LCD screen at the back of his DSLR, prepare your hands to catch your jaw from falling to the ground. Wedding day - it was here I saw that this photographer is serious about his work. It was this time that I noticed that some of the appointed persons for our wedding like who does the makeup, people at the reception, and people at church are aware of his presence. Everyone was working really efficiently because the photographer says so. Ben is really meticulous both on time and small details. If something goes wrong with your dress, expect him to notice it first. His crew is really good too. Expect Ben to crack some jokes to make your wedding special and to lift up the mood as it is really stressful during wedding day. This man is down to earth, he will be like your best friend during wedding day and you can really trust this guy to do his work. We went back to Norway the day after our wedding. Ben managed to provide us digital copies of the videos and some edited and unedited pictures. Totally impressed by this and feeling very satisfied during our flight back to Norway. By the time the hard copies are ready, he managed which courier to use and packed the albums and pictures securely. The pictures we received are really so impressive to see specially once you frame it. The albums are so well built you can really say it will last for a lifetime. We've hung up some picture frames in our hallway at our house and everytime we pass by that hallway, we see the pictures, we see how much work was put into it, we see that even if the price is kind of steep, it is really WORTH it. Every Norwegian who has seen our wedding pictures are really impressed by Ben's work, all they say is like this : You guys really have a PRO photographer. Amongst all gifts and souvenirs during our wedding day, it is the pictures that stand mostly seen and observed. Not everyone you know will be in your wedding day but you can at least show them what was it like during your wedding. Every visitor who visits our home here in Norway are always impressed by the pictures they see at the hallway. So I urge you to splurge with Ben - make those memories like trophies and display them at your home. You'll be very proud of it everytime.

    Connoisseur of photography

    When we were preparing for our wedding, my then fiance, now my husband, decided to go to a Wedding Expo in Manila. As we were looking around, we happen to pass by Ben's booth, we both fell in love with his work. Right there and then we booked Ben. During the prenup pictorial and wedding, we saw Ben's professionalism, how well he knows his craft, how he sees beauty even in the simplest location. He is really good! I can say we made the right choice, the best actually☺

    Two thumbs up!

    We had our wedding in Aug 2012 and it was Ben and his team who took our photos on that memorable day. And true enough the memory of that day still lives on every time I look at our photos and those glorious pages of our album. Ben has a natural gift of dealing with people with his endless stories and humour that instantly you feel at ease with him. My husband is not a camera person but Ben was able to bring out the best of him on our photos. Ben takes pride in his craft and makes sure that he delivers what he promises his clients- perfection to every detail!!!

    Eye for Detail and Perfection

    Jeff and I were married January of 2008. We met Mr. Ben Young a year before that for our prenup photoshoot here in NY. We were amazed at how good he was at his craft especially for someone so young. He has an uncanny gift of making you feel at ease in front of the camera so your pictures will come out relaxed, natural, spontaneous, and uninhibited. We've been following his "works of art" through the years and Ben has, without a doubt, mastered and has reached excellence in his photography skills.

    Chef d'oeuvre of Happiness

    Photographs are one of the few means to seal immortality of special moments; thus, it is only natural and proper that such task be entrusted upon a virtuoso. Benjamin is that genius! The first day my wife and I met Ben we knew he was the one and only one who could capture our momentous occasion the way we wanted it to be remembered. He was such a pleasure to work with, a feat simply rare among artists of his caliber. He was very accommodating to our ideas, whims and jocosities yet masterful in conveying his vision, disposition and critique. Furthermore, his team of videographers and photographers were attuned to his skillful direction. Our wonderful engagement and wedding pictures would attest to the fact that our faith in him was never in danger of being misplaced. With Ben, we were never reminded of the limitations of our contract or his schedule. For him, creating a photographic magnum opus was foremost; anything other than that was the rest. Yet in spite of such marvelous work ethic, he never once made any outrageous demand for his services. True, my wife and I could have had a set of beautiful pictures with another impressive wedding photographer but it could only be with Benjamin Young III that we could have that chef d'oeuvre of a joy in our lifetime.
