“Ben captured me the way I see my best self – strong, multifaceted, and beautiful in a way that transcends just my physical form. His images let me glimpse how others see me. It was truly a transformative experience.” –Amanda

“My room is like an art gallery created by Ben Marcum Photography. Nothing quite like being able to admire beautiful prints and to know these will last, to pass on to my children someday.” –Hope

“I felt like I was looking at a movie star version of myself. Ben and his team far exceeded my expectations. I have 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.” –Charity

“Ben is optimistic, humorous, and creates such a welcoming atmosphere the second you walk into the studio. Confidence has always been something I lack, but because of Ben’s tremendous work, he allowed me to feel beautiful, and that is something I will cherish and hold onto forever.” –Lauren

Meet Louisville Portrait Photographer, Ben Marcum

I’m Ben Marcum, a portrait photographer based in Louisville, Kentucky. My job isn’t taking your photo, it’s creating works of art that you will love. Having your portraits created in my beautiful studio is unlike any other experience you’ve had.

My portraits are inspired by classical art portraiture – they’re created to last a lifetime, and beyond. Whether your portraits will be framed to display proudly in your home or collected in a beautiful folio book, you’ll be so happy you chose to capture and celebrate this moment in your life.

Your session includes hair and makeup by one of our professional beauty artists who work with you throughout the entire session. You don’t need to worry about ‘being photogenic’ or knowing what to do in front of the camera because I’ll be there to coach and guide you. You’ll have so much fun, you’ll forget you’re on camera.
