Let the fun begin

you don't take a photograph. you make it.

My name is Ben Meaker and I'm a lifestyle, wedding and portrait photographer based in New York, USA.

I am deeply honored that you've found yourself on my website. If you're here for a specific purpose, read on. And if you're here by mistake, stay for a bit. Who knows, you might enjoy the ride.

I am here to tell your story in a real, tangible way through photography–my creative medium of choice. It's an absolute blessing that I get to do this for a living. Capturing little–but exceptionally important–transient moments in peoples' lives is what really motivates, excites and inspires me. Because, for the people they are about, these moments represent a much greater sum of their parts. They can anchor people to a moment in time and remind them of a shared experience together.

Nothing in the world beats that.

That's why I do what I do. And I would love to do it for you.

No poses, no bullshit.

Just your truth. Nothing more, nothing less.

My Approach

Honest, raw emotions and stories

My style of photography is one dictated by the emotions of people in a particular moment in time. I observe first, then I capture. I like to combine this photo-journalistic approach with a few relaxed, naturally posed portraits (as well as a few creative ones) to tell the overall narrative.
