Ben came to Atlanta in 2004 for college at Georgia Tech with the dream of being an engineer, but photography quickly became a hobby and then a passion. In 2016, after two degrees and ten years of being dually focused, he left engineering to start Ben Lipford Photography. He also married his best friend and partner, Rebecca, that same year. His daughter, Emmy, was born at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Ben primarily shoots documentary family photography, but also has extensive experience in the wedding, commercial, senior, and studio portrait genres as well. Outside of photography, he’s a huge nerd at heart and love all things video games, movies, fantasy books, and music.
