With Louisville Photographer, Ben Marcum
Let's Design Your Dream PortraitsLearn More
A portrait is different than a selfie or a candid photo. It’s deliberate, designed to create and capture a single moment in a person’s life. When done right, your portrait will be a source of pride and a monument to your life, now and for years to come. Louisville photographer, Ben Marcum, creates magazine / contemporary portraits, fine art / painterly portraits, and boudoir portraits.
You've Never Had A Portrait Experience Like This
A portrait session with me is an experience - it begins with a consultation with our design team, includes wardrobe coordination, hair, and makeup, and ends with a guided posing session you'll enjoy and remember for the rest of your life. Your session will be a fun, pampering event, and it's not over when you leave - once your session images are ready, you'll come back to the studio to see them all revealed and ready for you to make your selections.

Charity Gardner AndersonI am 31, a mom of a 2.5-year-old, I have a full-time job and I live a pretty normal life.
I felt like I was looking at a movie star version of myself. Ben and his team far exceeded my expectations. I have a new confidence after working with them. I would do it again a thousand times over and tell all of my friends to do it, too.
Somehow the way I define beauty and look at myself has changed. I'm still amazed at the power of a portrait session.
He cultivated an environment that makes photographing souls a possibility. He set the studio with precision aesthetically, but his personality is his greatest skill. The laughter and comfort and ease with Ben bestowed some of the most amazing photographs I have ever seen.
I could’ve never imagined that this portrait session could re-ignite the fire within me. I felt like I saw myself again. ...I felt beautiful, powerful and more than anything grateful! Grateful to Ben for giving me something that I didn’t even know I needed. It’s such a gift.
