Benjamin Skigen: Denver, Colorado Couple & Engagement Photographer
Couples Photography Overview
Couples are one of Ben's favorite subjects to photograph. It's always an honor to have the opportunity to capture the love and dynamics of you and your significant other, as you are at that moment in your lives.
Ben's couple's photography style is warm, tender, and organic. When you hire him to photograph you and your partner, Ben will not only get great posed shots, but he'll also capture the real, candid moments in-between.
How Does a Couple/Engagement Shoot Work?
A photography experience with Ben begins with a brief consultation. During this discussion, we'll talk about where the shoot will occur, what you need to prepare for, and other details about the shoot. On the day of the shoot, you'll be confident and comfortable knowing what to expect.
During the shoot, Ben will gently direct you into poses, and also creating opportunities for moments of candid spontaneity. There is an energy flow between a photographer and his subject, and Ben strives to inject it with positive, happy energy. f you have ideas for the perfect couples photo, Ben will help you make it happen!
After the shoot, the images will be carefully reviewed, picking the best 10%. These 'keeper' images will be individually processed; cropping, balancing, touching up any distracting elements, then processing them with Hollywood-class image enhancement tools to infuse character and personality. You'll receive three different processing variants of the images too; Ben's trademark color and black and white looks, and a creative look utilizing analog film emulation techniques.
Finished images are delivered via a private, password-protected online gallery, typically within 10 days. At that point, you can purchase prints, files, canvas, or choose from many other high-quality print products.
