Documentary Wedding Photographer covering the Southwest

First of all I would like to congratulate you on your news to marry! And thank you for visiting my website in your search for a Documentary Wedding Photographer.

Your wedding will be a big day, so planning all the small details is very important. Every little aspect will have been given great thought and consideration. From prep to celebrations. With all that hard work for your big day, you want a reliable self-directed wedding photographer that will capture all of the very important moments. All the way down to the small details. And thats where I can be of service. I love photographing weddings. Its a buzz for me! No wedding is the same, and that’s why I would love hear all about yours.

Turning the pages…

A wedding day is a story, and just like turning the pages of a book, so a documentary wedding photographer is very important. I would document the narrative of the event in the form of beautifully edited high resolution wedding photographs. Some of the best wedding photography that I have produced has been of candid moments between the newly weds and their guests. Moments that cant be planned, or ever recreated. You can be assured that Il capture everything you would want to treasure with complete discretion.

As well as my photography services, I offer COUPLE SHOOTS  & photo sessions with FAMILIES. Where you can hire me simply for some photos of you and your loved ones. These are also great for couples who want to get used to the camera before their big day, and family’s simply needing to update their albums.

The 12 hour package is the whole bang! From the moment you start getting ready, until the beers glasses are tapping together! I only take a break when the wedding party eats. I will always stay long enough to make sure I have covered enough of the partying to complete your photo album. Included in this package is a couple photo shoot in the weeks before the big day. 1 hour travel time included in shown price. 500 images minimum.

Photo USB Box 30 6×4″ prints + private online photo gallery

This photo package is designed for enough coverage to simply say “we got married!” The 6 hours can be of your choice. Maybe preparations and wedding ceremony are all you need? Followed by some bride and groom photos afterwards. Either way its more flexible for you. 1 hour travel time included in shown price. 300 images minimum.

Have a team of two document your day

Wedding photography can be challenging at times, even with two cameras in my hands. This is where a second wedding photographer can be a great idea! Two photographers and four cameras! This takes immense pressure from me, and allows me to cover you and the main party with more attention. Upgrade your wedding album with many more photos of guests, details and events I wont be able to see!

Only 25% to secure your date for both wedding photography packages. The rest payable 28 days before the big day.


“What are your two packages”?

My two primary wedding photo packages cover for 6 and 12 hours. Although I can be hired for a more custom time if required.

What area do you cover”?

I predominately cover the SW of England, but I can venture out to different parts, and even abroad!

How do we get our photos”?

Your photos will be delivered in a private secure online gallery, and on a USB stick with a Whoisbenjamin wooden photo box, sent to your house.

Is Benjamin Insured”?

Yes! I have full public liability to be able to operate as a wedding photographer

How do we book Whoisbenjamin”?

After an initial enquiry we can meet over a coffee, or FaceTime call. Once a booking fee is received your wedding photography is secured. I do then like to try and meet with couples for an hours photo shoot to help break the barrier of the camera.

What is your style, we dont like having our photo taken”?

My style is very from the crowd and as things happen naturally. I am open to requests from yourselves and guests.

How long will you stay for“?

With my 12 hour package I will stay until around 10pm, or until I’ve made sure I have covered a hour or so of the partying.

What if it rains”?

This is normally a very rare thing, but if it does we can venture out under some matching umbrellas and embrace the elements, or we can set up flash equipment and shoot inside the venue, until it hopefully stops, and then we shall get more outside to bump up your wedding album

What equipment do you have”?

With me I will have a Nikon d850 and Nikon Z6, and a third camera stashed away for just incase. This is great as I can use different lenses at the same time to handle any situation. Also incase one was to fail, I would still be able to cover your day. I will also use flash equipment to get the most out of the first dance and partying

How long until our wedding photos arrive”?

I have a saftey window of up to 12 weeks, but they are normally with you in and around 6.

Private, sharable online photo gallery included for image download. 50 images minimum.

These couple sessions are an amazing gift between two love birds, and also great to prepare for wedding photos! There is nothing serious about these shoots. I keep them fun and lighthearted. So much, you wont realise how many images are being taken. We can explore the forrests, walk the edges of a rugged coastline, or duck and dive an urban environment. We can also style it, to give them that extra wow! Its fun, and nothing but this. These couple shoots are included with a 12 hour wedding package! You will also receive the images in low resolution for social media use.

Very similar to my couple shoots, these are fun easy going, except there is more of you! I can easily handle up to a family of four while on location or in your home or garden. I enjoy these shoots just like any other. Kids are great fun and really help keep a shoot going. You will receive all photos fully edited, in full resolution for your own printing and display use, and sized for social media. The gallery can also be shared with other family members and also friends!
