Ben and Rebekah Hood
PI: What is the best thing about being your own boss?
Ben: Being home with our kids most every day is probably the best thing for me. I’m a big fan of traveling around and shooting, but it’s always rad to get to hang out with my kids and have lunch.
Rebekah: I really enjoy getting my make our own rules for life and family. I feel like being home and having the freedom to work when and how we want gives us ultimate flexibility…with our kids school, our travel, when and how often we see family, and how much time we get to spend in relationship with others. Of course, there are many days where this is very stressful, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
PI: How would you describe your photography style?
Ben: my style is a mix of photojournalism and fashion photography. I know that may sound odd to some people, but it really makes sense when you think about it. A wedding photographer’s job is to document the day, and then to take amazing portraits. My goal is always to photograph the events of the day in a way that tells the story, and then to take portraits that stand on their own.
Rebekah: I never really have a great answer for this question, its a hard one. One thing I can say, is that I always try to make people feel amazing about themselves. Whether I’m shooting boudoir, an engagement session, or a wedding day involving bridesmaids and moms and brides and grooms, I’m always looking to photograph people and moments in a way that makes my subjects feel incredible.
PI: When going to an event what is the one thing you never leave home without?
Ben: I always have collar stays, a pocket knife and a mini sewing kit in my photography bag. We’re there to support the bride and the groom on their wedding day, and if that means sewing a button on a shirt….well, you do that.
Rebekah: Mole Skin. It fixes the blisters brides and bridesmaids inevitably end up with, and then I am the hero of the day.
PI: How would you describe a Kallima client?
Ben: Our clients tend to be fashionable people who make waves in the world. They don’t want the typical wedding- they want something above and beyond, and they choose their vendors carefully to reflect that.
Rebekah: Our clients tend to be people who understand the difference between good and exceptional. They have class and taste, take great care with their wedding details, and love fashion and photography alike.
PI: If you were stuck on a dessert Island what three things would bring with you?
Ben: A pocketknife, a turkey sandwich and a helicopter. -Really, why wouldn’t you bring a way to get off of the island?
Rebekah: dry shampoo, a yacht, and cabernet sauvignon.
