A pretty good way to start out is by telling you more about myself and my photographic style. I’m Ben, a professional wedding photographer from Bedfordshire currently living in the quaint village of Cotton End with my partner Kim, who’s my second shooter at weddings and events. Oh and in case you didn’t notice I’m a red head, yet somehow I still manage to blend into the background on your big day.
I’d say I’m quite laid back as a photographer, and I’ve learned that it’s important to have a flexible approach to consistently produce high quality photos. I’d say that 70% of my photographs are taken without any direction, but some of the more formal shots may require a little helping hand. Even so, I’ll always strive to make you feel comfortable, and more often than not, a phony grin can turn into a natural beaming smile, whilst a fake laugh can crack into a fit of laughter. As the official photographer of your wedding, my objective is to tell the story of your day, encapsulating your most beautiful moments.
I developed an interest in documentary photography throughout my years in journalism, and I’ve been able to use my experience to create a documentary style that’s perfect for weddings and events. Having learned from one of London’s finest photographers, Ruth Allen, I’ve developed a knack for anticipating and capturing authentic, beautiful moments.
