Benjamin Edwards and his wife, Lauren, are a husband and wife pair photographing weddings and cultures all over the world. But they are much more than photographers. They are humanitarians and most definitely… angels to many.
Benjamin puts it best: “i’m inspired by my faith, my wife (she’s my better three quarters) my children, coffee and fog. most of the time in that order. i believe beauty’s resting place isn’t reserved for the glossy magazine pages we’ve grown accustomed to seeing, or the high price beer ads on super bowl sunday. i believe beauty can be found in the young and old of africa and the forgotten elderly of our united states, the eyes of the homeless and hurting, and in those who may be too large to fit in the box people like to title “beautiful.”
on some level, i’m still getting to know who i am. my journey isn’t complete and i’m thankful for the opportunity to grow. i feel beyond blessed that i get to capture the world for a living, but make no mistake, who i am is not “what I do” and I believe the same goes for you.
rock on friend.”
In this episode, we take you to a part of Africa where the circumstances are unfortunate yet absolutely awakening. Benjamin’s camera is yet a tool. And his kind heart is the inspiration to awaken the world to the beautiful people of Africa.
