We were particularly impressed with the photos of our first dance which are simply stunning!"
"Ben was the principle photographer at our UK wedding reception. We could not have asked for better photography. His photos were brilliant and displayed a great knowledge of photography, ranging from small dark indoor space photography to posed family wedding shots and more relaxed party shots. We were particularly impressed with the photos of our first dance which are simply stunning!"

Brilliant mix of serious, artistic and humorous photos.
Having been let down by our original photographer with only five weeks to go, Ben stepped in and immediately alleviated our concerns. His professional and approachable manner endeared him to our guests who were very relaxed in his company. This resulted in a brilliant mix of serious, artistic and humorous photos that we are absolutely delighted with at great value for money.

Very pleased with the service
Ben provided us with some very memorable wedding photographs, both formal and informal. On the day of the wedding he was unobtrussive yet always there, looking to capture the special moments for us.
The photographs were provided on time and he personally delivered them to us, on DVD and memory stick in a nice presentation box.
Ben is very friendly and relaxed, but also conscientious; we were very happy with his work and would recommend him.

Ben was constantly taking pictures but, at no point was did it feel intrusive
Ben was the photographer for my Wedding in September. Have to say, he was fantastic, communication leading up to the day was great, we had a couple of meetings to sort out the details and went with him to the venue to look at areas to use for the pictures. On the day, Ben was constantly taking pictures but, at no point was did it feel intrusive, looking back at the pictures he provided, I didn't even notice him take a lot of the pictures. I would highly recommend Ben, very reasonable in price and highly professional.

your relaxed personality is a credit to yourself and was commented by all of my family members.
One of the highlights of our wedding day, was our talented and creative photographer.
Ben captured the magic on our wedding day by translating into the most beautiful, stunning and natural images. Not only did he produced beautiful photographs but was able to capture a happy atmosphere, emotion as well as our personalities. A story I will treasure forever.
Ben's ability to make Steve and I and our three children feel so at ease on the day, your relaxed personality is a credit to yourself and was commented by all of my family members.
The compliments from the wedding venue to the bridal boutique to family and friends have been incredible.
Steve and I would recommend Ben to any couple who like contemporary , creative and quirky photographs!! Most importantly a photographer you can trust! Effortless and talented to sum up Ben.
We thank you again
