About Ben Lariviere Photography

Ben Lariviere is a wedding photographer, whose photography style is rooted in expressing genuine emotion and capturing authentic moments through keen observation and a honed sense of timing. For Ben, photography is about storytelling and mood. He approaches every assignment as a challenge to shape a narrative, express genuine feelings and record both large and small details. He does this by employing visual aesthetics that accomplish those goals in an honest, yet stunning way.

Experience

In 2012, Ben earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts, specializing in Photography and has been freelancing ever since. Currently living with his wife, Kat and son Rylan, near Toronto, Ben was raised in the small town of Baden, near Kitchener-Waterloo and returns frequently to photograph weddings and portraits.

    Skilled, calm vibe, beautiful & memorable photos

    It was clear from the beginning that Ben is very talented with photography. My partner and I were nervous as neither of us had ever had professional photos taken before, but with Ben's relaxed nature, good direction, and good humour we were able to ease in and get comfortable with the process. Getting our engagement photos done helped with this a lot and also gave us something exciting to do while planning our wedding. Ben was quick to respond to emails in good detail and so helpful with the planning process, like suggesting shooting locations. Ben also continued to be a calming presence on our wedding day, putting myself and my husband, and all of our friends and family at ease to enjoy the day and we were left with photos that captured us as a couple, our family, and friends so genuninely and naturally. I very much recommend Ben Lariviere Photography!

    Great choice

    I would highly recommend Ben to everyone! Not only are his pictures beautiful but he is wonderful to work with. My wedding had many last minute changes due to weather and he was so accommodating and made everything work so effortlessly. Even when we lost track of time and he was done for the night, he let me know before he left that we didn’t do our dances yet and he offered to stay an extra hour to capture those moments. I also think he takes some of the best candid photos I’ve ever seen. Seeing pictures of our loved ones smiling and laughing throughout the day, are my absolute favourite. I will forever be thankful to Ben for capturing the story of our wedding day perfectly!

    Ben is amazing! He was the photographer for all 3 of my sisters' weddings. I knew it was an excellent choice choosing him for my own wedding. His creativity will make your pictures outstanding! He catches your most natural moments, and those are my favourite pictures. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone. He is a pleasure to work with and really listens to what you want!

    Amazing and Talented!

    Oh my god we cannot rave about Ben enough! We are so happy we went with him! He’s personable, creative, flexible, talented and overall amazing. When we begun searching for photographers, he stood out the most with the tone and feel in his pictures. He did our engagement photos and wedding. He was so flexible with our day and captured every shot we wanted, plus more we never even thought of! I loved the candid moments he caught in a world where people tend to always pose or not be themselves. The album he made for us was amazing and it’s something we will cherish for a lifetime. 100/10 would recommend!

    Love, Kelsee & Taylor Kelly

    Incredibly thankful!

    Having never had professional photos done before my husband and I weren't sure what to expect. Ben made us feel comfortable and relaxed during our engagement shoot which helped prepare us for the wedding. We received many compliments from guests on how he "just didn't stop working all night," and you can tell based on the final product. We are so incredibly happy with all our photos and how well he captured our day. We will forever be thankful we chose him for the job!
