I’m Benson, a documentary wedding photographer based in the UK, covering weddings all over England, Scotland, and Wales. I love capturing the real moments of your wedding day, from the first look to the last dance.
In stark contrast to the ‘ shouty’ larger than life ,huge lens carrying photographers of my youth, I’m an unobtrusive photographer, mainly utilising natural light, and small form professional cameras who blends into the background, so you can relax and enjoy your day.
My photos are natural and candid, honed from years of street photography, capturing the true essence of your love story.
I’m someone who learnt photography shooting on and developing film in the darkroom. These days I mainly shoot using digital cameras, but still strive for that film look. With that aim, I’m also quite an adept editor, and I take the time to carefully craft each and every one of your photos, into a beautiful wedding collection that you’ll cherish for years to come.
If you’re looking for a documentary wedding photographer who will capture your day in a natural and candid way, I’d love to chat with you. Please get in touch to learn more about my services. email@example.com.
“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” ― Karl Lagerfeld
I am thrilled to capture the beautiful moments and emotions of one of the most important days in a couple’s life. As a photographer with a passion for storytelling, I believe that every wedding has a unique story to tell, and my aim is to capture those authentic, candid, and heartfelt moments that make each wedding special and memorable.
With a documentary approach, I strive to capture the true essence of your wedding day as it unfolds, without interfering or staging moments. My goal is to be an unobtrusive observer, blending into the background while capturing the raw emotions, genuine interactions, and fleeting details that make your wedding day truly yours.
Having a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of light, composition, and timing, I strive to create photographs that are not just visually stunning but also rich in emotions and meaning. From the joyous laughter during the getting ready moments to the tearful exchange of vows, the emotional embraces, and the lively dance floor celebrations, I aim to create a visual narrative that tells the story of your wedding day in a genuine and timeless manner.
I believe that every couple deserves to have their love story documented in a way that reflects their unique personalities and the authentic moments that unfold on their wedding day. I am passionate about capturing real moments and creating images that will be cherished for generations to come. I am honoured to be a part of your wedding day and look forward to telling your love story through my lens.
I started my photography journey shooting film, and using a darkroom to develop my own prints- AKA as the old fashioned way.
My background is in street photography, capturing the moments as they happen, which I think has been great training for my work in both wedding and Event photography. Thinking about it, I have always been a people watcher, ever since I was a young kid, and I absolutely love people, and helping them tell their story, through my photography.
Your photos will become the most valuable part of the wedding when its all over.
“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” ― Ansel Adams
