Hi, I'm Ben!


How to choose the moment for your live wedding painting?

Stuck on the moment?  This guide includes 10 questions we ask our couples to help them decide on the details for their Live Wedding Painting.


Grab the guide:

Chloe and Colton’s Ford Field and River Club wedding painting is officially complete and ready to unveil! This live wedding painting was commissioned by Chloe’s mom and oh my heavens, we were beyond excited about the details for their wedding day!

Ben created a painting many years ago here at the Ford Field and River Club. Returning to this incredible property is always such a joy! Each and every corner makes a great live wedding painting! The hardest part is choosing the corner!

Does it get any more southern than this charming lawn lined with the beautiful Live Oak Trees, dripping with Spanish Moss?

Chloe and Colton chose to have Ben capture their ceremony as the subject for their live wedding painting. The recessional moment is one of Ben’s favorite subjects to capture during a ceremony. We love that this moment was perfect to highlight her stunning gown and gorgeous bouquet. And lastly, we must talk about their incredible floral arch installation that was designed for their ceremony, too!

Chloe and Colton’s wedding day was beyond gorgeous! We are so happy with how their Ford Field and River Club Live Wedding painting came together!!
