June - Three Generations
Harvey, Jay, and Ben Findling represent three generations of photographers within the Findling family.
Harvey, a wedding and event photographer for over 60 years is never at a loss to find a way to make people smile.
Jay developed a love of photography as a teenager while he spent time working with his father at numerous special events. This led to work as a video photographer while in college, and many sports photographer positions during those years.
Ben seemed to take to the camera and demonstrate his natural eye at a very young age. In Middle School, Ben enrolled in photography courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology and he takes advanced photography classes in High School. During the Summer of 2017, Ben had the honor to be the staff photographer at The Briefings, A National School Safety Conference held at Columbine High School in Littleton Colorado. In his spare time, Ben, like his grandfather can be seen taking pictures at various wedding ceremonies and special events as the staff photographer for Love and Peace Ceremonies, Inc.
