    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!

    Great Experience!!

    We used Ben for our wedding and engagement photos. He was great to work with and made both of us feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera. He had fun with our wedding party throughout the wedding day and made sure to get all of the shots that we wanted. He found the perfect spots to take pictures and they turned out beautifully! We could not have been happier with our wedding photo's and were so happy with how easy Ben was to work with and how quickly he always responded to our millions of questions leading up to the wedding. I would definitely recommend him as a photographer!!

    My husband and I could not be happier with our entire photography experience with Ben Lariviere! He made us both feel so comfortable and we are typically very camera shy. After receiving our photos, we could not be happier! We have heard nothing but compliments, on his photos, from our family and friends! Ben completely captured every moment of our special day and in such a real and beautiful way.

    Me and my wife had the pleasure of hiring Ben to be our wedding photographer last year, and we couldn't have been more satisfied. After reaching out to Ben from a friend recommendation, he was always very helpful with his advice and guidance to give us the best options such as photo locations, schedule which was flexible, and sincere pricing. He made the entire process very simple for us in regards to planning the engagement and wedding photos, especially on the wedding day after our schedule was altered due to inclement weather, Ben was able to find a alternative location before the reception for the wedding party photos which helped us tremendously. As for the photos we were really impressed with his shots, and his turnaround time for the photo proofs were given to us quickly considering how busy wedding season is during the summer. He was able to include all the special moments we asked for with perfect angles, lighting, small details, and backgrounds. Overall Ben was a spectacular wedding photographer and we couldn't be happier with his work. We'd recommend him to anyone for not just weddings but any photography work!

    Ben was absolutely amazing to work with and was an obvious choice for us when it came to choosing our photographer! He was easy going, gave direction when needed and always made us feel extremely comfortable! He captured our winter wonderland beautifully and was willing to stick it out in the cold snowy air to get the perfect shots! We couldn't be more happier with the photos we will cherish forever! Highly recommend him!
