They truly take their clients' needs seriously. In my case, I needed hot stone treatment and a rectofacial tachycardia, and Ben personally delivered with such gusto that I found it problematic to apply my scapular tension rig afterwards! God bless.

Ben and Taylor are PHENOMENAL. I've worked with them on a number of projects over the last couple of years and the videos have always been nothing short of outstanding. They are wonderful people who are enthusiastic about your project, generate creative ideas, and produce results that exceed your vision every time. More...

I can not thank you enough!
My wedding my one of the best days of my life and I am so happy you were there to capture it all. Not only do my photos reflect how happy we were...but we look darn good! You were so easy to work with and with some gentle guidance you ensured we got the photos we needed.
Thank you thank you thank you!

Taylor & Ben were amazing to work with and did a tremendous job on both our wedding photography & video! They are true artists with great ideas but were flexible enough to accommodate all our requests. We'd definitely recommend them to our friends, and already have! More...

Taylor & Ben are a great team to work with! They provided photography and a photo booth for my wedding of about 125 people for 9 hours. They are so friendly and easy to work with both via email and in person and made the wedding day photos feel very easy and relaxed. My husband and I are so happy with the end result! They did a great job staging us and our guests for portraits and the lighting is amazing! The candids are also very fun and capture some great moments of our day! And the stills of the venue and other details are perfect. They require very little direction and know exactly what they are doing! Plus, they are super nice, which makes everything easier! I highly recommend hiring this great team! More...

Taylor and Ben captured so much more than just pictures of our wedding. The photography/video package allowed us to get incredible images and a highlight video within our budget. The photographs and video turned out better than could ever be expected! Taylor and Ben made us feel comfortable in front of the camera without looking too “posed.” I can’t stop looking at all the incredible shots!!! I definitely recommend Taylor and Ben for all your photography and video needs! More...

5 stars even close to enough for the work done by Powell Media Concepts. I worked with Ben and his partner Taylor to create a promotional video for my design business last year. I still get comments weekly about how creative, professional, and clever the video is. You know, I wish I could take all the credit myself... but that wouldn't even be close to the truth. When I came to PMC, I have a very simple high-level idea. I wanted to make a video that showcased my company and work in a short video. After that, (very smartly) I let the experts take over. The video turned out more amazing than I could have ever dreamed. Both Ben and Taylor are the perfect blend of technical experts and artistic visionaries who were able to collaborate on writing a tight script, frame drop dead gorgeous shots, add organization to a somewhat chaotic shooting schedule due to a last minute change in weather conditions, direct a bunch of non-professional actors on how to act naturally in front of the camera, and select the perfect soundtrack to fit the vibe of the video. Most impressively, they were able to coach someone like me (who is afraid of speaking on camera) to look and sound surprisingly natural and authentic. The list could go on and on...If you're looking for premium, high-quality, and creative storytelling through video or photos, I can't recommend PMC enough. In fact, I can't wait to have another reason to work with them again. :) More...

Ben and his team created a spectacular marketing video that blew our entire executive team and staff away. He listens to what your needs are and offers great ideas to achieve your goals. He is detailed oriented, organized, and easy to work with. On the day of our shoot, Ben had a check list of shots he needed to take and executed with efficiency. His quick turn-around time for our video product and revision shows that he is proficient in video editing. Beyond that, he also understood the importance of sound in a video. He developed the script and worked with us to perfect our voice-overs, his selection in background music to tie it together gave our video the modern feel. If we are ever in the market for another video of some sort, I'd definitely come back to use Ben. TLDR: High quality product, incredibly reasonable price. You won't find someone that can offer the same quality product at a lower price. Trust me, my team and I have looked at all the vendors in the DMV area. More...

We placed a high priority on our wedding photos, and we're so glad we went with Taylor and Ben. We met with three photographers, and Taylor and Ben were the most accommodating and shared our perspective on what we wanted for our photos. They took the time to answer our many questions, responded to emails within a day or two, and helped us enormously with our day-of timeline. Taylor and Ben captured both posed portraits and candid moments from our wedding, while being unobtrusive. I don't know how they did it, but people are smiling in every single photo! The colors and quality of the photos are beautiful; we just got our wedding album and are so happy with it.

Choosing a wedding photographer is tough; those photos will last for the rest of your lives. We definitely feel that we made the right choice with Taylor and Ben.

Taylor and Ben were a joy to work with. During the planning process, Taylor was extremely responsive and helpful. They were willing to drive a bit out of the way to a location we picked out for our engagement session. They got the pictures to us within a week since they knew we wanted to use them for our save the dates and offered to retouch the picture we chose. On the day of the wedding, they were prompt and kept to the timeline. They were very efficient with the formal pictures and managed to wrangle the bridal party. We were able to get pictures at a variety of locations at our venue. During the ceremony, we didn't even notice they were there (unlike photographers at some weddings). They posted a sneak peak blog post two days after the wedding, and the pictures look amazing. We can't wait to see the rest! More...

Working with Taylor and Ben was one of the easiest and best decision we made throughout the entire wedding planning process. From our engagement session to creating our wedding album, they were beyond professional, incredibly responsive and just overall a joy to work with! On top of all these wonderful qualities, they took incredible photos that make me smile every time I look at them. They both made us feel so comfortable, that we actually forgot we were being photographed at certain points. They also had a unique way of capturing beautiful candid moments which was exactly what I was hoping for. We can't recommend them enough! More...

We LOVED working with Taylor and Ben! They were friendly and comfortable, while still being professional. We didn't want to go the traditional outdoor engagement photo shoot route, and Taylor and Ben were up for the challenge! We asked them to come to our house and photograph us cooking. Sounds weird, but the photos were stunning! We were absolutely positive we made the right decision for our wedding. Our wedding photos are stunning and we would hire them ten times over if we had the chance. More...

When I looked for a photographer for my wedding, my biggest concern was, would they be cool with my bridal party and family? Because I've been in weddings where that's wasn't the case---and it's been tough. I knew the minute we met Taylor and Ben that they would be amazing with us and our entire wedding crew.

Not only were they chill and fun to work with, but they also do amazing, beautiful work. They captured so many unscripted, priceless moments from our day-moments I completely missed as they happened. Yet they also managed to take every one of our dozens of requested group shots with aplomb.

They made every deadline they promised-from our engagement photos to our wedding photos to our album-and answered every question promptly. I've loved working with them and I'd highly recommend them to any couple getting married!

Planning a wedding across the country was at times incredibly challenging, however, choosing Taylor and Ben as our wedding photographers was one of our easiest decisions. Taylor and Ben are two talented, warm, flexible, accommodating, caring individuals. Before meeting in person, we had the opportunity to meet through FaceTime. We could sincerely feel their professionalism, dedication and excitement a few thousand miles away. Taylor was incredibly responsive via email, I would receive a response to a question typically within an hour, if not earlier. The day of our wedding, they arrived early, calm and ready to go. They were photography ninjas, capturing so many memorable moments from several angles without being distracting. We genuinely couldn't have picked a better photography duo to capture our big day. One thing I genuinely admired about Taylor and Ben was that they were one hundred percent invested while respecting and valuing our opinions and suggestions. We are in love with our wedding photos and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thank you so much T & B!! More...

Ben and Taylor were absolutely wonderful to work with for our videography. I especially appreciate how they were able to work with us to set up an easy-to-use live stream of our wedding ceremony so that my Nana and Great Aunts could watch along even though they were unable to be there in person. This was so important to me and they made it so simple! They also did such a great job of capturing all the important moments of our wedding in an unobtrusive way, especially the toasts. We are so relieved that we can go back and watch/listen to those speeches with clear audio. Ben and Taylor are so personable and worked so well with all our other vendors, especially our photographers. Our guests even commented on how friendly and professional they were. We strongly recommend working with Ben and Taylor for your wedding! More...

Taylor and Ben were phenomenal to work with! We did an engagement session with them back in October and they had wonderful tips on where to have the session, what we should wear and were very good at directing us with exactly what to do and how to pose. Throughout the planning process, Taylor was responsive whenever I emailed her with a question. On our wedding day, they were prompt, flexible (we were running late) and a pleasure to work with. The most hectic part was wrangling my large family for portraits post-ceremony and they were organized and Taylor was loud (which was very important). The best part was we got the majority of portraits out of the way before the ceremony so we could spend ample time with our guests. Ben sent me sneak pics (formatted to Facebook cover and profile pic sizes) the next day and they are breath-taking. I look forward to receiving the rest of the pictures back. I would (and have) recommend Taylor and Ben to anyone looking for professional pictures without question! More...

Ben and Taylor were awesome to work with! They're fun, easy-going people. When it came time for our engagement shoot, they even tried to tailor it around our interests. Most importantly, their pictures came out great and were sent to us in just a month! Everyone loved the pictures! We were so happy that they were recommended to us by a friend and we're happy to do the same. Such a great couple to work with! More...

Taylor & Ben are great to work with! I used them for my engagement shoot as well as for day-of videography and photography. The photos are amazing and I was happy to be able to send a DVD to those that weren't able to attend in person.

I thought it would be awkward to do different poses, but they're really natural and professional -- great team!

They offer a variety of packages for weddings and engagements. They are both very professional and work well with clients.

I would definitely recommend hiring them!!

Taylor and Ben were amazing wedding photographers! Very easy to work with and super responsive. My now-husband and I are not picture people, and we were looking for a basic but high quality photography package that also offered good value. Taylor and Ben fit the bill perfectly for us!

Taylor was very helpful in planning and working with us to think through organizing the photography timeline. Taylor and Ben also scouted out locations for photos at our venue before our event. The only thing I might have done differently would have been to discuss/vet the locations beforehand. We had to move inside as it was very humid out, and our family portraits ended up being taken in the busy hotel lobby with a restaurant as part of the backdrop which didn't do much for the photos and added to the chaos of trying to organize people.

Overall though, working with Taylor and Ben was a great experience for us, and I would highly recommend them as wedding photographers.

Their knowledge and professionalism were outstanding and could be seen throughout the photography planning process, ceremony and reception. The quality of service and photos shows their expertise in capturing the once in a lifetime moments. We definitely recommend them!

Taylor and Ben are a talented, creative, and unfailingly professional photography duo. My husband and I really enjoyed working with them when they shot our wedding in August and we recommend them highly to other engaged couples. Some of our wedding choices were a bit unorthodox - we didn't have an official wedding party and we chose to forego standard photo ops ranging from cake cutting to a bouquet toss - but we were nevertheless delighted with how our photos turned out and Taylor and Ben were flexible and accommodating throughout. They took our suggestions and priorities to heart (for example helping us get some photos during a narrow timeframe at sunset on the waterfront at our venue) but were never pushy or in our faces. Apart from the hour or so before the ceremony when we specifically made time for portraits and couples shots, we barely noticed they were there.

It was clear to us from the start that we would be getting great quality and value by using Taylor and Ben's services, and their responsiveness and professionalism were beyond reproach - I don't think I ever went more than a few hours without hearing back from Taylor anytime I reached out to her, and she and Ben are zero-drama, which was one of our biggest priorities for our vendors during the wedding planning process. As they're a fairly new husband and wife photography team in the DC area, I have no doubt theirs will be among the most highly sought out local businesses for wedding photos before too long - book them while you can!

Ben & Taylor are the most fantastic wedding photographers. From our first meeting with them, we just felt so at ease and it really showed in our photos. We took our pictures outside in crazy, humid, DC summer heat and we (and our whole wedding party) look downright comfortable in all of them. I've told all of my friends that they're not just photographers, they're magicians too! We were so happy to have Ben & Taylor be a part of our wedding. They're so easy to work with that it was the one part of our wedding that was literally zero stress. We couldn't recommend them enough! More...

Photography was a very important part of our wedding planning and budget. Having Ben and Taylor as our photographers was the best decision we made! The quality and work of their pictures is amazing. They really worked with us, were flexible and are incredibly talented photographers. We appreciated how responsive they were through email. They gave us our pictures and wedding video to us a lot sooner than we expected too, which was a nice surprise. We highly recommend Ben Powell Photography for both pictures and video! More...

My wife and I got married on May 31, 2014. Hiring Ben and Taylor as our photographers was one of the best decisions we made in the entire wedding planning process. They were courteous, upfront about everything, and reachable whenever we needed them. They even walked through our venue with us so we could show them some of our favorite places ahead of time. And on the actual day of our wedding, Ben and Taylor were flexible to our needs, letting us know they understood that the schedule might change at the last minute. They even helped us come up with backup plans in case rain interfered with our pictures. (Thankfully, it didn't!)

They are recent newlyweds themselves, so they related to where we were coming from and helped capture the best day of our lives. We did a ton of research to find the best photographer out there and we found Ben and Taylor's prices to be extremely competitive. We were very satisfied with the finished product. We would (and will!) absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Taylor & Ben are wonderful. They were very professional, outgoing, and patient. Our photos are beautiful, and the pricing was very reasonable. The only negative I can think of is that one of them is in the video of our wedding taking photos in front of us while we are saying our vows.

They were so kind to us, particularly on the day of our wedding, and helped orchestrate everything so that it would be picture perfect, like the cake cutting. We are so grateful and would definitely recommend them!

Ben Powell Photography lived up to their hype. When they were able to shoot our engagement photos based on my husband's very tight Army leave schedule, we were hooked. For the wedding, Ben and Taylor not only studied my Pinterest account to get a feel for the style of photographs I wanted, but they arrived with an organized agenda, and executed it with perfect professionalism while still being personable. They knew the photos were my top priority that day and, even when the schedule turned unexpectedly cramped, they never lost their cool. Bonus: Taylor even carried my shoes for me when the walk down to our first-look photo shoot proved to be a particularly muddy one. More...

Ben and Taylor did a phenomenal job photographing and taking video of our wedding. From the initial meeting through the delivery of the photos they were a pleasure to work with. They worked with us to customize a package that fit our needs and our price range. The day of the wedding they were extremely professional and did a great job of keeping us on a timeline and keeping the wedding party in order. The results were fantastic. We had a lengthy list of shots that we wanted and they managed to get every single one. As their time with us was winding down, they interrupted their meal to come get shots with the grandparents before they left, and didn't bat an eye at it. We now have unbelievable photos and an awesome video to relive the big day. Of all the vendors you deal with at a wedding, Ben and Taylor stood out as the best. They get my highest recommendation; we couldn't have been happier with their service. More...

Ben and Taylor were the videographers for our October 2013 wedding in Washington, DC. We decided to hire videographers after initially thinking we did not need our wedding recorded. Man, we are so happy that we changed our minds! The wedding videos (short and long versions) were breathtaking. They were awe-inspiring in quality. The wedding looked beautiful and it was obvious that everyone was having a good time. People who have seen the videos have commented how they look like movies, and we couldn't agree more. We are glad that we made this investment so that we can forever watch our video and be reminded of the day that we were united as one.

Ben and Taylor were flexible in creating a package that met our budget and were kind enough to welcome us into their home to discuss options and view their past work. After meeting them in person, there was no doubt that we would hire Ben and Taylor. We loved their professionalism and their chemistry was a plus! (You really can't beat having a husband and wife pair shoot your wedding!)

In light of the above, we highly recommend Ben Powell Photography!

I love Ben and Taylor! Not only are their services amazing, but they are a delight to work with! During our last consultation, I mentioned a slow-motion video booth idea and Ben took it and ran. It was a hit at our wedding- all our friends and family had so much fun playing around and watching the slow-mo playback...and then we go the video back-- AMAZING. Ben had sorted through all the clips, picked the best ones, and put it all to sound..the result was unbelievable. I still watch it on a weekly basis ;) As for the photos- I'm still trying to pick and choose which ones to enlarge and frame. I love every.single.picture. Thanks again Ben & Taylor! More...

They were attentive, prompt, friendly, and genuinely easy to work with. Most importantly, they took our preferences and concerns about lighting/positioning/etc. very seriously, and the final product reflects that.

We highly recommend Ben and his team, and are thankful for all of their hard work!

We loved working with Ben and Taylor. They were really nice from the first meeting and were easy going, so easy to work with during our wedding day/night. The photos turned out gorgeous. The only thing I would have done differently was picked out the location of where we were to take photos with our families. Not having designated that, we ended up in a small conference room that didn't do much for our pictures. So that's just a tip for other brides to think of. In terms of Ben Powell's services, I thought they were really great and very happy that we chose them. We would definitely recommend them to others. More...

This was hands down one of our favorite vendors that we used for our wedding. Ben did a phenomenal job of capturing all crucial moments from our wedding ceremony and reception, and weaving them into a magically creative 6 minute highlight real. It is definitely worth the money to invest in Ben because he will provide you with a gift you can watch over and over again that is much more telling then a simple photograph. More...

Ben and his crew came highly recommended from a family member. I needed to pull off my wedding without having the benefit of a large budget. My ceremony was beautifully captured by Ben Powell Media. The shots were original, and very creatively done. I can look at my wedding album and relive it all through the professional photographs that I have to cherish as a keepsake. I owe alot of the precious memories to Ben Powell Media for preserving them.There are pictures of people that I was not aware that came to the wedding only because they did not make it to the reception, and I was such a ball of nerves, that I didn't see everyone in the church. My focus was on getting down the isle and saying my vows on this day. So, Ben Powell Media captured so much that I was not able to see that day.
My favorite shot of all time is the black and white photgraph of my husband and I in the foyer of the church on the way down the isle after we said our vows and we were just walking and looking into the daylight streaming through the windows of the church foyer.

Ben and Taylor did an amazing job for my surprise proposal. They came out the day before to go over my plan and decide on a location where they could hide and shoot the event. I loved the fact that they did that because it really calmed my nerves. After I proposed they did a quick photo shoot of my fiancé and I. The photos turned out awesome! My fiancé and I couldn't be happier. They were very quick to upload them for our review and touch them up. Ben and Taylor have an awesome personality and are easy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone looking to photograph a special occasion. More...

Ben & Taylor are the dream team when it comes to photography!!! They were the absolute picture of professionalism during my wedding: they made both me & my fiance (who are slightly camera-shy), AND my guests feel completely at ease, were very flexible with locations and times, and absolutely creative in the poses and shots that they captured! They were not disruptive to the ceremony or reception at ALL (I barely realized they were there) and all of my guests commented on how impressed they were with their professionalism.

Ben & Taylor have a great eye for lighting, spots for perfect shots, and really tailored my photos to what I wanted for my wedding day. They were constantly in contact with my (now) husband and I prior to the wedding to talk about schedules, picture ideas, and get a general feel of what story we wanted our pictures to tell. They even have a pinterest and facebook account where you can communicate desired photo ideas!

Lastly, these two are just so personable and sweet. My husband and I instantly liked them both for their honest and friendly demeanor and will definitely use them again for any photo opportunity we might need in the future. I'm also recommending them to ALL of my friends in this area who are getting married because they truly have amazing talent, run a reliable, professional photography service, and have REASONABLE prices for the D.C. area (they could definitely charge MUCH more for the quality of the services they provide!!!).

Thank you Ben & Taylor!!!!!! We'll be looking for pictures of your upcoming nuptials soon!

Ben Powell made my wedding a success. He had the perfect blend of gentleness and good humor mixed with strong leadership qualities. He had an efficient "get it done" attitude without being in the least bit pushy. He put all the family members and members of the wedding party at ease so that they were relaxed in the pictures. He was very flexible and adaptable, so he worked well with energetic young people as well as more elderly people whose mobility was limited. Countless people commented on how much they enjoyed working with him. He even helped the ceremony and reception run more comfortably by guiding me through the smoothest order of events. Ben is not only a very talented photographer, he is a sweet and calming force on the big day!! My husband and I loved having him there! More...

Ben and his fiance, Taylor were still getting their business out there when we used them for our engagement photos. We LOVED the results and booked them for our wedding. WOW what a year+ will do for an up and coming photographer. His work was spot on, his portfolio is growing every day. His attention to detail is impecable and his attitude will keep any bride not only at ease but on schedule. Ben listens to exactly what you want and delivers. He is speedy yet organized making sure to get every important shot. His assistant comes with his package and absolutely helps when you want the pictures to continue flowing but not seeing your groom before you walk down the aisle. It not only is effective in saving time but cost effective. I would highly recommend Ben for any type of photography, just go check out his portfolio and your decision will be made... More...

There is a saying that goes something to the effect of, "You get what you pay for". Well, not with Ben Powell Photography. He is extremely reasonably priced (especially for the Washington DC area) and yet his photographs and quality of work come across as if they should/could be priced a lot higher.

Ben Powell Photography did about as close to a perfect job as could be done. Ben did a great job capturing overall wedding photos and candid shots throughout the night that pretty much "tell the story" of how the night progressed.

I was amazed by the shots Ben was able to capture and the quality of the work itself. It seems like everybody who attended the wedding was photographed and included.

Ben is very easy going and accommodating, making him a pleasure to work with. He also has a knack for great natural photos that don't look stiff or staged.

Ben Powell Photography handled both our engagement and wedding photography.

Ben was extremely knowledgeable when my (now) husband and I met with him and his assistant Taylor to discuss ideas and options beforehand. Neither of us had any concrete ideas, but as soon as we described a direction that we wanted to go in, Ben was immediately able to pick up on our style and help guide us to our desired outcome.
He made sure to mention options or alternatives that he had provided to other couples - both he and Taylor were very flexible when it came to our wants and needs.
He gave us his cost and contract at the end of the meeting and my husband and I were both very pleased with his pricing. It was definitely within our wedding budget.

On each respective day, both Ben and Taylor were extremely professional; they both arrived on time to the venues and had all the necessary equipment needed to do the job. They both remained completely professional during the duration of their jobs.

Ben has previously done both engagement and wedding photos and that was definitely apparent on each separate day; he knew exactly how to guide us and we didn't have to worry about any 'missing' poses or setups. His vision was totally in sync with ours.
Also, our wedding day was very hot and I really appreciated the fact that Ben didn't mind when my husband and I took breaks to drink water and cool off.

Our photography from each occasion was edited and 'retouched' within an exceedingly reasonable interval; especially considering there were so many photos. Ben was very patient with us when it came to our edits and took the time to make sure we were happy with what we got.

Ben was very prompt in his emails and text messages when he replied to me. His responsiveness was very reassuring amid the craziness of planning a wedding - I never had to worry about not receiving a reply.

I'd also like to add that both Ben and Taylor are very friendly and very very nice. They put both my husband and I at complete ease on each of our photo shoot days; but obviously, it was especially nice at our wedding, no awkwardness or feelings of distance - by this point we were all pretty comfortable around each other. Both he and Taylor are a perfect blend of professionalism and friendliness.

My husband and I are immensely happy with our wedding photos and overall experience with Ben Powell Photography. We definitely recommend them!

Ben has provided quality service from documenting my shower to pictures in his studio to my wedding day. Even though it was a small private event, Ben documented the occasion perfectly. I highly recommend him!

Ben did a wonderful job. Our pictures are stunning - both the planned and spontaneous pictures captured the true personality of our child.

Ben was the photographer at a baby shower I recently threw for a friend. He took a mix of event photos and maternity shots of the mother to be, and they all turned out fabulous. He has a great deal of professionalism, and was an absolute joy to work... More...

My husband and I hired Ben Powell Photography for our wedding in September 2011. Ben and his partner, Taylor, were awesome from start to finish.

Ben and Taylor were professional, laid back, artistic, flexible, and fun to work with. They made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, came with cool photo ideas, and listened to our input as well.

We got an engagement session with our wedding package and the photos with the engagement were beautiful!

The photos from the wedding were fabulous. Lots of great candids and formals.

Price-wise, you can't beat it. After looking at countless photographers starting in the $2000 and up range, we got discouraged. Thankfully, we found Ben offering a price that fit into our budget and whose photos could stand next to the $2000 price tag proudly.

Ben and Taylor rock. You won't be disappointed!
