Ben’s experience in video started in middle school, filming youth events, christian day camps, and church events. His love for video grew throughout college at Word Of Life Bible Institute and University at Buffalo.
Kisha grew up with an interest in photography, having a dark room in her own house and a cousin who was a photographer. In high school, she received her first film camera, began taking photography classes and her love-affair with photography was born.
Ben and Kisha met at a college and career Bible Study near our alma mater – University at Buffalo. Little did we know we would be married a couple years later and have a wedding that would change the trajectory of our lives. After our dream destination wedding to Puerto Rico in 2003, we fell in LOVE with the entire WEDDING process and just knew that photography &
video was our FUTURE!
Ben and Kisha are not only PASSIONATE about weddings, we love MARRIAGE and couples in LOVE. There is a special energy between engaged couples and it is so amazing to capture those emotions!
Above all, we love God, each other, and our children (Joshua and Rebeca)! “Your Memories…Our Passion!”

Are you getting married in Charlotte, NC? Who will be your Charlotte wedding photographer? Who will be your Charlotte wedding videographer? Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for Charlotte wedding photographers and Charlotte wedding videographers.
When selecting a Charlotte wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your group all day on your wedding day during some of the most important moments of your life. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way. Your Charlotte wedding photographers personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography altogether. We have been blessed to have become friends with so many of our clients because we have personalities that work well together. As a Charlotte wedding photographer we do more than taking pictures, we strive to create a stress-free fun experience so you can enjoy your wedding day. You will more than likely be working with your wedding photographer for a year, or longer in some cases, by the time you factor in your engagement session and post wedding photography and albums. Do you want to make sure you are the right fit? Interview the Charlotte wedding photographers you like. Contact us to set up an appointment. We would love to get to know you better.
While price is always a factor when selecting your Charlotte wedding photographer, it should not be the ONLY thing that matters. We’ve heard many horror stories from brides that based their decision purely on price. When it is all said and done, your Charlotte wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day. We strive to provide our Charlotte wedding photography clients’ wedding images to be simple, elegant and modern so future generations can enjoy them.
//3 Wedding Albums
What will you do with all your images from your Charlotte wedding photographer? Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your Charlotte wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your Charlotte wedding. When selecting a Charlotte wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask your Charlotte wedding photographer:
- How many pages come in the wedding album?
- About how many images will be in the wedding album?
- What cover options are available for my wedding album?
Something often overlooked when selecting a Charlotte wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your Charlotte wedding. Typically you will want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the moments of your wedding day. After all, that’s what you are hiring them for. That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 8 hours. As a Charlotte wedding photographer, we plan your day with you and help you determine how long certain aspects of your wedding actually take. The coverage needed should start 2-3 hours before your wedding ceremony. Please note that different cultures such as Indian weddings, Vietnamese or Greek weddings usually take longer because of the number and length of the ceremonies. Be careful here, some Charlotte wedding photographers may offer lower prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.
//5 Number of Professional Wedding Photographers
How many Charlotte wedding photographers will be at your event? Most events need at least two wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer is focused on working with your group and directing the day and allows the second wedding photographer to have coverage going on at the same time. We find that by having two Charlotte wedding photographers at your event, your Charlotte wedding photography needs can best be met all while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day.
