Style & Story was the first wedding photographer we met with and the last! Ben H. is seriously the BEST of the best. He made us feel like family, and truly cares about each one of his clients. Our day was so special and easy going with him and ...
his team there. He made sure things were on time, kept us laughing, and made everyone feel comfortable. He also is a blast to be around. 10/10 would recommend and I am so glad we have his photographs in our family forever.

I can't say enough about Style and Story. I knew based on the work I've seen that my pictures would be everything I ever dreamed of. Not only are the pictures amazing, but Ben H is also amazing. He made everyone feel comfortable and happy, and ...
honestly fit right in.

Style and Story was the very first vendor we hired. The photography was the top importance for us and we knew we had to have the best. They did not disappoint! We did both our engagement photos and wedding with Maykell and he is just amazing. G...
reat personality, so much energy, really knows how to get the right shot. Neither of us are models and the idea of acting cute or romantic in front of others was a challenge. But Maykell knew exactly how to get authentic and emotional shots, half the time without us even realizing it was happening!
For our engagement photos we ran him all over town, even taking him out on a broken old railroad bridge! And then at the wedding, he let us soak him with champagne just to get the spray shot. He put up with our crazy families, us being stressed about capturing everything possible, and posing our excited dogs. He was just amazing. Couldn’t recommend him enough.
While I would say Style and Story is higher end budget wise, they are worth every penny!

We were recently married in Columbus and had the pleasure of Ben and his wife Lacey there as our photographers! We were absolutely blown away with their talent. We never knew until we had the privilege of working with them what makes a photo...
grapher truly great. They put us at ease, made us feel as though we were in great hands, reduced our stress, and made the whole experience so much fun!! They just nailed it!! Their special way of connecting with people is a big part of the magic they have and we will always treasure the memories we made that day. Any bride and groom would be lucky to have them on their team! Let’s do that again!

Style & Story and its incredible photographers have been the calm within the storm of wedding planning from the very beginning of our engagement. We knew from the moment we met them at a wedding show over a year ago that they were for us. Their...
energy is unparalleled, and their professionalism and willingness to get the shot makes us SO excited for our wedding this August. Stephen drove 2.5 hours to Put-in-Bay for our windy October engagement shoot. He rode a VERY rocky ferry boat, spent all day with us exploring the island, and got completely soaked with us to get the most incredible shot. Style & Story are 100% worth the investment and so much more. Stephen has already given us engagement photos and memories that fill our home and photo albums. We cannot wait for our wedding day with him and know those photos will be just as amazing.

GUYS. If there's a handful of people I'd like to hire to just hang out with, these are them. This team is stellar in what they do. They are enthusiastic and excited about YOUR story and how to tell it best. They are crafty, flexible (literally ...
and physically... the sh*t they do for great pictures), and artistic. As a wedding professional myself, I know the importance of hiring vendors that you ENJOY being around. Photographers, specifically, are around you more than almost any other vendor on your wedding day, so you better like them. I'd hire them on personality and fun ALONE. Not to mention their insanely mind blowing photography.

This review is long overdue, but I need to share after re-hashing our experience multiple times with friends asking about our wedding photographers. We were thrilled to hire Ben & Les for our wedding, but now recommend them with caution. They w...
ere our dream photographers and we absolutely love the photos they captured of our day...simply stunning!! Ben did a great job handling a few challenging situations throughout the day (i.e. upset security officer at one of our photo locations and photo-happy Grandparents ;)). He helped make the day very relaxed and fun.
While we are so thankful for the photos we have, we unfortunately hesitate to recommend their services to other couples for the following reason: we did not get everything we paid for. I'm not sure if they tried to cut corners because we hired them at a discounted rate before they increased their prices for the year or if it was truly a mistake, but there were too many issues that arose making it feel more than coincidental. For example, we paid to have a "lighting director" who never showed up to the wedding. We paid for her service and also paid for her seat at our reception. We also gave Ben & Les money to purchase a hotel room the night before the wedding, which they did not book. We know this because they showed up late to our morning photos due to snowy driving conditions (they called us on their way to notify us). We were loving our day so much that we didn't even realize our contract was breached until days/weeks later.
If you consider hiring Ben and Les for your wedding, be assured that you will get top notch photos from a very friendly couple. Just know that they were not open and honest with us. Please be cautious and make sure you thoroughly read your contract to hold them accountable to the service they say they will provide.

Where to start with these guys! From the first time we talked with Style & Story, we knew we had made a great decision. We had Stephen as our photographer and he and his assistant knocked it out of the park! He was there for both my wife and I ...
through out the whole day, and made it light and fun, but also very professional in making sure we were doing well on time and getting some amazing photos taken! Communicatoin was great, as Stephen was timely at getting back to us, whether it was a phone call, email, or text. They did a great job, and blew any already high expectations my wife and I had out of the water!

The best decision that we made for our wedding, was booking Style & Story Creative. Ever since I saw their pictures, I knew they were going to be perfect. We really enjoyed working with Ben and honestly, he has a passion and was born to be a ph...
otographer. I loved how he always was on top of things(literally, to get some of the best shots ever, he stood on a bunch of stuff!) and he just always stayed real to who he was and what he was about. I loved that he was able to relate to my husband and I's taste and our style. One of the most important thing about my wedding that I knew would mean a great deal to me, were my wedding pictures, and Ben went above and beyond and delivered the best pictures I've ever seen. I cried for both my engagement and wedding pictures, and it takes a lot for me to cry over pictures! Thank you SO MUCH Ben!! I couldn't have asked for anything better!! You truly brought my childhood dream to life and I appreciate everything you did! <3

Hiring this company was an amazing decision. My entire bridal party loved Ben and Chalen (sorry about spelling?)--they made the picture taking process not only effortless but fun. Both of them were so willing to do whatever they needed to make ...
our day go smoothly. At one point Ben was holding a mirror in front of me so I could see my hair. Ben will do whatever it takes to get an amazing shot and even out guests commented that he was worth the $$ because even they could see how hard he worked. There is no way you would be disappointed if you hire these people!

hem for 12 hours, and they stayed later, to make sure we had that perfect end-of-the-night shot. They are so talented, and their work is truly an art form.

They went above and beyond to make sure we got everything we wanted, and I couldn't be happier!

g with them the first time, they were booked! The wedding photography is unparalleled with anything I have seen from the weddings of friends and family to Pinterest to shots in bridal magazine and on websites. They have a creative and unique vision that will not only give you wedding photographs perfectly tailored to your day but will combine that with traditional wedding portraits so that nothing is left uncaptured. We received a preview of our photos via Facebook while we were on our Honeymoon and it was like we were able to relive every moment and emotion from our big day! Not to mention the onslaught of compliments that our guests and wedding party had on the day of the wedding (how kind, professional, and creative they were) to after seeing what they could do (how unique, breathtaking, and stunning their photographs were). They are worth every penny and you will have cherished memories and photographs for years to come from them! Holly P.
