MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT: Stop and/or My Wife Will Shoot!

There’s a well known secret among our clients and peers in the industry: Ben Lau Photography has always been a husband and wife team. Despite the fact that our logo features only my name, our business has always been a two‐person operation. From handling our accounting to social media, to managing the schedules of our associates and itineraries for our clients, Karis literally does everything outside of drink recipes and dad jokes.

But most importantly, Karis has been shooting by my side for over 10 years, usually staying in the shadows and away from the spotlight. The unfortunate consequence of this is that folks have been admiring her work for years without ever knowing those gorgeous images actually came from her cameras. Just imagine: all of that work and absolutely none of the credit.

That, my friends, is about to change.

Over the years, we have entertained the idea of shooting separately (more than a handful of times, actually). But the timing was never right: we were always too busy grinding away at our two wedding photography brands and raising a family. So by the end of the day, we were simply too exhausted to even think about adding more to our already overflowing plates. 

And then COVID19 happened.

If there’s one silver lining we could glean from this COVID19 catastrophe, it’s that those excuses of the past no longer applied. When the universe hit the pause button, it was a gift that gave us a much-welcomed buffer to clear our post-production and general housekeeping. Our days are now filled with homeschooling and video games; and quite literally, we now have all the time in the world.

So without further ado,  I’m incredibly excited and proud to announce that Karis will finally have a new photography brand to call her own. You can check out her new home here: https://heykaris.com. This next chapter in our career has been long overdue, and I can’t wait to see all the magic that Karis will be bringing to her clients’ weddings.

So what will this mean for Ben Lau Photography? Our clients may rest assured that they will continue to enjoy the same experience and imagery as they always have. The only small adjustment is that I may now have someone else co-shooting with me on any given wedding day (basically how we did it when we were starting this business while we were starting our family – a crazy life I probably wouldn’t recommend to everyone).

I sincerely hope you guys will enjoy what you see, and that you’ll join us on this exciting new adventure. And if you do, please show your support by adding her on Instagram (https://instagram.com/heykaris) and Facebook (https://facebook.com/heykarislau.com). We want to thank all our friends, family and clients who’ve helped make this possible, and for all the love and support they’ve given us over the years. We look forward to sharing this next chapter of our lives with you!

We now resume with your regularly scheduled programming :).

I love it when couples write their own vows, especially if there’s a roasting component to them. Listen: everybody in the room knows ya’ll love each other, and there’s a good chance they know about your quirks too. But for your future co-pilot-for-life to acknowledge all the weird/oddball/endearing things you do, and they still absolutely adore you (quirks and all), it speaks volumes beyond any poetry you can muster up on the internet. In those moments you’re speaking truth, and in truth there is beauty. And that is why we all love it so much :).

Ping & Stephen tied the knot at the Maritime Parc in Jersey City, which followed a very busy tea ceremony (one of the busiest I’ve ever documented). This was a first-time experience for many in Stephen’s family, and they were just super honored and thrilled to have participated in something so traditional and meaningful for the family they’re marrying into. Although we were barely out of winter when their wedding took place this past February, one wouldn’t have been able to tell with the bride walking along the Jersey City waterfront with her bare shoulders against the chilly wind. I surmise it must’ve been all that tea they shared earlier :).

It’s no secret that a packed dance floor is one of my favorite parts to photograph on a wedding day; and the crazier the better! In all the years I’ve been photographing weddings, I can definitely say that these folks will rank in my top 10 for many years to come – these guys know how to party! I mean, I should’ve known better: these star-crossed lovebirds first exchanged glances on a party boat all those years ago, so we wouldn’t expect any less :). Their celebration took place at the Surf Club on the Sound, which was my first time shooting there and it’s simply a wedding photographer’s playground. From it’s manicured driveway, to its waterviews on its terrace, it would be hard to take a terrible photo here. Combined that with one of the funnest couples in the universe, we’ve got ourselves a helluva good time :).

Family. At the end of the day, that’s what most weddings are about. In Hollie & Ponce’s case, this would be no exception. It was the first time in a long while since Hollie & Ponce had all the important, wonderful people in their lives reunited, if only for one special day. It served as a simple yet profound reminder that the bonds run deep in a loving family, no matter how far the distance between its members.

We were still in the midst of a cold winter when Hollie & Ponce tied the knot at the Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm in New Hope, NJ, a family owned farm right across the New Jersey/Pennsylvania border. With their best friend officiating one of the most entertaining ceremonies we’ve heard in a while, we were reminded of all the important things that help make marriages successful: laughter, generosity in love, and family & friends you can always count on. While we didn’t have the opportunity to play with the most adorable farm animals I’ve ever seen, we hope to change that on our next visit! Nevertheless, we wish Hollie & Ponce nothing but the best as they embark on this new adventure together :).

In the brief time I got to spend with Jessica & Gary, I came to learn that they were not your average couple; that much was clear. While most couples would be consumed with all the sentimental aspects of your typical wedding day (First look? who needs it? These two got ready together!), they wanted to make sure it was all about family, and they wanted to make sure everyone was having a great time. So in the end, that’s exactly what we documented: all the important people in their lives, and everyone having one of the most memorable evenings that’ll stay with them for a very, very long time.

Jessica & Gary’s wedding at Perona Farms marks my return to this gorgeous North Jersey wedding venue after an 8 year hiatus, and we love what they’ve done with the place! This rustic barn was the perfect backdrop for this couple, with enough eye-candy to satisfy any photographer’s creativity. Mark my words, I’m not waiting another 8 years to come back to this wonderfully amazing place!
