Full Description
I studied photography and media for 6 years at Kingston and also worked at the head office of the world’s best camera company, Nikon for over 6 years before making the move to full time photography. In addition to all of the incredible wedding couples I have had the honour and privilege of photographing, companies such as The London Stock Exchange, RBS, Standard Chartered, Dubai Tourism and Vision Express have also placed their trust in me over the past decade for all their visual needs. I have been voted runner up for Hitched.co.uk’s Breakthrough Wedding Photographer and Shortlisted for Wedding Photographer of the Year. I am not satisfied with that though and always looking to improve and innovate. I have also been featured in various media publications and articles giving advice on professional digital photography. A number of the world’s leading online wedding blogs have also featured some of the many weddings I have covered across the world. I promise to do everything I can to capture everything so brilliantly you won’t be able to wait to share the results. I take a real pride in my work and am only happy when you are happy. Ok, let’s face it, anyone can take pictures. I am inspired by people and their story and that spurs me on to take innovative pictures with real soul. I love life, I love people and I love capturing it on film…well digital to be precise.

Amazing photographers
We loved Benji being a part of our day. Not only is he a very talented photographer, but he is also such a lovely guy to have there! Very considerate, polite and kind. We loved him being part of our day.

You will not find a better or nicer photographer
I would recommend Ben without hesitation. He delivered beautiful, stylish photos of our wedding which everyone raves about. But what sets Ben apart is how helpful and easy to work with he is. You will not find a better or nicer wedding photographer.

If there was a 6* rating we would give it!
If there was a 6* rating we would give it! There are loads of photographers out there and having attended many weddings in the past we were a little apprehensive of choosing one that would be able to capture our special day. However our doubts vanished as one of the things that makes Ben standout from the rest is that he must be a part time Ninja. His reportage style truly captured our day and the shots were amazing we don't remember some of them being taken. Right from the start Ben took the time to get to know us, understand what we were looking for and was always there to answer any questions that we had. On the day he made sure we got the shots that we wanted, was very patient with the crowd and organised them very well without being pushy, so much so that it felt like Ben was a friend enjoying the day with us too. We've had so many compliments from friends and family saying how polite and friendly Ben was, that even some of them don't remember the photos being taken either. The package we had initially only gave us 300 photos but with the option to purchase the rest. We realised before we even finished looking at them, that we had to purchase the rest as they were just stunning. Thank you so much for capturing and giving us a record of our special day for the rest of our lives.

We couldn't have been happier with the results!
'We couldn't have been happier with the results that Ben produced for our wedding. The whole day ran extremely smoothly and Ben was able to ensure that all the organised shots got done within the time constraints, whilst remaining personable to all the guests and working effectively alongside the staff at the venue. Aside from the usual family and friends group shots, we were particularly impressed with the reportage style shots that Ben took throughout the day. Not only did these provide us with a lasting memory of the entire day from initial prep through to the wedding breakfast, they also captured the spontaneous moments and reactions of the guests, conveying a real sense of enjoyment that both ourselves and our friends and family had during the event. Post wedding, Ben also provided excellent after care and created the packages of photos and DVD's of the best shots that we had hoped for. If you require any references, please don't hesitate to contact us!

We would heartily recommend Ben
‘Having Ben as our photographer was a real enhancement to our wedding day and how much we enjoyed it. He was organised, extremely flexible and friendly, and made sure we obtained all the shots we wanted without any feeling of pressure or awkwardness. During the ceremony and celebrations he was completely unobtrusive, but, as has been proved by the excellent photographs, he was in just the right place all of the time. We would heartily recommend Ben as photographer for anyone's special day.

We're so happy with our wedding photos
'Ben really helped to make our big day special; he was calm throughout and really friendly to us and all the guests. The pictures were a mix of traditional and creative shots and all of them came out brilliantly. We're so happy with our wedding photos. Ben captured all the key moments perfectly and it's difficult to choose or favourites!
