COOL, FUN & LAIDBACK LOVERS

 "BENJI IS A TOTAL
 **ROCK STAR** 
He's easygoing and makes you feel comfortable. I'd recommend Benji 100 times over."

HELLO, I'M BENJI...

 I AM not your grandma's wedding photographer! 

I am a wedding photographer based around Kent, Surrey & London creating authentic, fun and natural wedding photography filled with character, energy and genuine stomach-hurting laughter.

I shoot wedding photography as if I am showing you your day through the eyes of a friend, capturing moments that would otherwise go unnoticed.

I work with my couples as real people and not professional models to create images that reflect their personalities – I want to capture your love story without any stress or cringy moments that'll make you vomit in your mouth a little.

I take pride in producing photographs that are honest, creative and above all else, completely unique to your day. This approach is perfect for couples who are camera-shy or prefer natural wedding photography.

 FUN. 

I don't do cheesy jazz hands or gimmicks.

Be honest and let people know you're freakin' funny as heck.

 LAIDBACK. 

No bossing around guests, just hanging out with them.

The photographic version of a food processor... just blending.

 GREAT FOR VEGANS. 

Literally Zero Cheese

 FUN 

 AUTHENTIC 

 WHAT'S MY STYLE AND DOES IT WORK FOR YOU? 

A natural wedding photography approach isn’t for everyone. I believe that candid wedding photography should come from the perspective of someone who’s also invested and curious in every friend, family member and unfolding story.

In the day and age of mobile phone cameras, instant sharing and filters that completely alter appearances – I believe that it’s more important than ever that your natural wedding photography is authentic. Being ‘authentic’ goes beyond minimising the use of trendy filters. It requires a total shift in priority from ‘taking wedding photos of someone so that they look nice' to 'identifying and showing personality'. I want you to really see the people you love in your wedding photos. I don’t care about posing them to make them ‘look’ fun if *they are actually* fun. I just want to give people permission to be themselves and not feel like they have to act a certain way because I’m the (dun dun dunnnn) ‘official photographer'.

Some of my favourite photos ever are the ones of my girlfriend, daughter and friends that aren’t the polished portraits or the awkward self-timer photo that we *had* to do because it’s what everyone else does. My favourite photos are actually just really amateurish snapshots from when we were sharing a good time.

In the long haul, we give more sentimental attachment to wedding photos that we associate with a positive or storytelling experience than to photos that are aesthetically pleasing but lack any expression, feeling, or emotional depth.

You can be posed in a flattering way….be in perfect lighting…with a beautiful backdrop and retouch your face till it no longer resembles a face. The best a “nice” photo can ever be is “nice”. The best wedding photographers are those that create a space where you can be yourselves and therefore associate it with an aspect of a loved-ones personality.

 

These are the wedding photos that can only grow in personal value throughout your lifetime. Your wedding is a real opportunity to capture a huge collection of candid, storytelling photographs that depict all the people you care about most. The best wedding photography should bring back side-splitting stories, and hazy dance floor memories, and remind you of your connection to those closest to you. 

You can’t pose or artificially construct that sort of thing.

Benji is AWESOME! We didn’t want cheesy, staged wedding photos and Benji got that 100%. He made us feel comfortable and relaxed and was so stealthy we hardly even noticed him taking all the photos of us! (That’s a compliment!)

The photos are fun, colourful and beautiful - literally everything we wanted them to be. They capture every one of our friends and family naturally and are now a gorgeous reminder of our perfect day. We had so many compliments about them from everyone we know!

We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and we’re so happy with everything Benji did! Thank you
