In their 20 years as photographers, Erin and Ben have learned to evolve, from journalists to wedding photographers and now to portrait photographers. They still photograph weddings all over the world, but at home they are studio photographers at King & Fields Studios. They use their cameras every day now - not just Saturdays – photographing everything from family portraits to pets to boudoir. It’s a daily adventure that has changed everything and shown them what their future as photographers looks like.

Ever since leaving his role as creative director for a billion-dollar company, Raheel met Erin and Ben through the wedding community and, since then, they have been inseparable. Together, they have built a portrait studio that delivers meaningful photographic experiences. Raheel gives clients the chance to see how truly valuable they are in their careers as well as their personal lives from his first phone call with them. Taking a typical headshot inquiry and turning it into a personal growth experience resulting in multiple shoots, clients see their passion and potential in the photographs and artwork created for them.
