I came across these two Columbus wedding photographers on Pinterest, and wow was I impressed. Every single one of their photos looks like it was torn out of a magazine. I stalked their Facebook page for way longer than would be considered normal and found this recent wedding photograph. This is my favorite, but their entire blog is a goldmine.

I especially like the use of tilt shift in their photographs, which is something you don’t see a lot of wedding photographers include as part of their arsenal.
I think Ben & Les are my new favorites. Check out more of their amazing work at www.benandles.com
