Wedding Photography

Hiring the right photographer is important. Before you book someone to capture some of the most important moments in your life, it's a great idea to hear from previous clients to make sure you're making a good investment.

Since I have control over which reviews show up here, I understand if you want to view reviews from a source where I don't have control. The two places where clients can review me are:

"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!"

"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 photos 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!!"

"We first came across Ben through a friend's wedding and thought he did a fantastic job at capturing candid moments from their wedding. From the moment we first contacted him to the moment we received our wedding photos, Ben was always prompt, professional, patient, and accommodating. We were nervous for our engagement photos as we both felt awkward during the shoot but the pictures turned out to be amazing. Ben does a fantastic job of capturing the moments where you aren't focused on the camera, which creates some outstanding photos. I have no idea how he managed to get shots from so many different angles during our ceremony, either, as you never notice him or the camera. I cannot recommend Ben enough and we were incredibly happy with our wedding photos. The extra touches like the sample pictures sent to us ahead of the final photos indicate the care Ben gives to each of his clients and the energy, patience, and humour he brought to each shoot really made him stand apart from other photographers."

"We had Ben for our Engagement and Wedding photos and he did an amazing job. He was so easy to work with and was able to capture genuine smiles in all of our pictures. He is energetic, fun, and patient which made us feel at-ease throughout the entire day. Ben gave us a wedding album that we will love forever (and will continuously show to everyone!!). Thank you so much for your amazing work on our special day."

"Aside from actually being married, our biggest goal was to come away from our wedding with nice pictures of us and our loved ones, and we could not be happier. Ben was an absolute pleasure to deal with and he did a great job at making us comfortable on camera (which in my case is no easy feat!). His work is incredible and we are so glad to have chosen him! We would strongly recommend his services to anyone."

"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 recommended to us through a good friend and we couldn't be happier with the quality of his work! It can be really strange being in front of a camera, but Ben is really easy going and so made it easy to relax. He is also a master of "ninja" photography; capturing beautiful moments you would otherwise miss. If you are going to invest your money anywhere choose a quality photographer, and choose Ben!"

"When searching for a photographer for our winter wedding Ben was an obvious choice! Ben has done SO many of our friends weddings and so I knew already how great he was to work with. He captured our winter wonderland beautifully, to even catching the falling snow on our faces as we kissed! Ben made my husband and I, along with the rest of our wedding party feel extremely comfortable in front the camera. His hard work and dedication really shows in pictures! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to friends or family!"

"I met Ben many years ago through a mutual friend and since that time he has done headshots, engagement shoots, and wedding photos not only for myself but for a number of close friends. He is an incredibly talented and dedicated photographer, for which I always recommend him to others.

But even more importantly, Ben has become a friend and is a part of my life, my wife's life, and the lives of the friends and family around us. His care and investment in our photographs became an investment in our lives, and the result is a collection of cherished memories captured beautifully and professionally, and a wonderful human addition to our lives."

"Ben was a fantastic photographer to work with for our wedding. Not only did he take amazing photo's that we cherish, but he was also just a great person to be around during such an important day. He is very calm and unobtrusive, you feel at ease with him around, which ultimately results in better photo's. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer, and would definitely use him in the future!"

"My husband and I are so pleased with our pictures. Ben captured our day perfectly and was also so easy going and fun to work with. When it came to choosing a wedding photographer, we didn't bother looking around. Ben's previous work was wonderful and he met all of our expectations. We were both nervous in front of the camera, but Ben helped us to relax and captured beautiful, natural moments that we can now look back on forever."

"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!"
