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.

Sarah + Daniel
The River Course at Kiawah Island Golf Club
Kiawah Island, SC
24 x 30 in. Canvas

It’s always so exciting when Ben has the opportunity to capture a venue for the first time.  And it’s an added bonus when he’s also capturing the gorgeous event design from A Charleston Bride.  We had so much fun planning for Sarah and Daniel’s live wedding painting, and Ben was so proud with how the finished piece came together.  The romantic soft French blues and lush greenery throughout the ballroom were just beautiful.  The large open windows of The River Course at Kiawah Island Club allowed for not only a great view, but also lovely light as Ben was painting.  Sarah wore the most dreamy custom lace ball gown by Modern Trousseau.  (After having worked for Modern Trousseau, I can always spot their gowns!)  Her gown was perfect for their wedding day!  We are so excited to share their finished live painting.  What an absolute joy to be part of their day!
