Photo taken by my fiancèe Wilma!

As you probably have already gathered, my name is Ben Haws. I'm a natural-light photographer located in Mount Vernon, Ohio. I love making your photoshoot fun, relaxed, and simple. But I'll warn you right now that I also enjoy puns.

During the week, I work full-time as a videographer but I have enjoyed still photography for many years. I dabbled with taking pictures as kid, but I really developed (see, told you I liked puns!) a deeper interest while I was studying filmmaking in college and I even had the chance to take a course in "old-school" darkroom film photography and really enjoyed it (but not enough to give up my digital camera of course). I have now been taking photos professionally since 2013 and loving every minute of it.  I enjoy capturing details. The sparkle in someone's eye. The subtlety of a smile.  The complexity of a personality. Whatever makes you uniquely and undeniably you!

I typically stick to portraits, but if you need photos of real estate, products, or events, we can certainly chat and see if I can help you out. At the moment, I do not photograph or film weddings but know several talented people who would love to help capture your special day. Just check out the list below!

Thanks for visiting and have a splendid day!
