This is your story…
Somerset Documentary Wedding Photographer
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. You have found one!
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 that’s where I can be of service. I love photographing weddings. It’s a buzz for me! No wedding is the same, and that’s why I would love to 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 newlyweds and their guests. Moments that can’t be planned, or ever recreated. You can be assured that I will capture everything you would want to treasure with complete discretion.
As well as my photography services, I offer shoots for COUPLES and wedding proposals. 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 the big day.

“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.
“What is your style, we don’t like having our photo taken”?
My style is very from the crowd and as things happen naturally. I am open to requests from you and guests. I love to mix and banter with guests while still delivering your photos.
“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 just in case. This is great as I can use different lenses at the same time to handle any situation. Also in case 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”?
Your wedding high-resolution wedding photo gallery is normally delivered around 4 weeks after the big day.
This wedding in the heart of Frome was perfect at all angles for photos. Christine & Stephen didn’t hold back on the styling.
The picturesque village of Clovelly in Devon was perfect for this boho styled wedding shoot.
Couple Photo Shoots
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 won’t realize how many images are being taken. We can explore a forest, walk the edges of a rugged coastline, or duck and dive into an urban environment. We can also style it, to give them that extra wow! It’s fun, and nothing but this.
Surprise Wedding Proposal Shoot
Shooting a wedding is one thing, but have you thought about the proposal itself? I can meet you at a location where you can propose to your partner. I can capture the special moment as it happens and deliver it in full resolution to cherish forever.
