HEY!

It’s me, Benedict, but you can call me Ben.

I’m approachable, fun and at times a tad eccentric, but more importantly, I’m a wedding photographer. I’ve been shooting weddings around the Hunter Valley, Newcastle and all over now for 3 years and its totally my jam. From my time in the industry, I’ve found that weddings are so much more than just beautiful photos. I get it, having a camera pointed in your face all day can feel like sipping on a nice hot cup of anxiety (yum). This is where I come in. I chill you out and make you feel comfortable! It’s my job to get you to not worry about your photography. I’ll be your mate on the day, help you with buttonholes, keep the kids entertained.. oh and I nearly forgot, I also take incredible, elegant and timeless photos that you’ll bloody love forever! If this sounds like the level of love you’d like on your day, get in touch! Now you know my story, I want to know yours!

Testimonials

 

Sheri + Greg | Woodville School of Arts, Hunter Valley

“Ben made us feel so very comfortable through our engagement shoot. He became an integral part of our journey well beyond our wedding day. Our photos, and the man and his smile behind them, are now part of our lives more than I could have imagined. I cannot wait to catch up with him for coffee and give him a massive hug. My heart is touched when I see his photos of our day, I am within my memories and all the feelings of the day come flooding back”.

Britt + Matt | Hunter Valley

“It’s been over a year now since our wedding day, which was beautifully captured by Benedict Sutton, and we still find ourselves every day scrolling through the images & reminiscing on what is still considered the best day to date. With Benedict, there was no awkwardness, only much laughter & fun. Working solo, he was able to capture each special moment of our ceremony from every angle, We were so amazed & completely in awe of how every photo turned out. Amazing work Benedict"

 
 

ash + bunx | three blue ducks, Sydney

“Benedict is an amazing wedding photographer, who captured our wedding day and engagement brilliantly. Bianca and I will be hitting our one-year anniversary next month, and to this day people still mention how absolutely magical our photographs are. He knew what to do, and exactly what to say, but most importantly, his style of framing and capturing moments is what makes us fall in love with that special day over and over.
We invested a lot of time in searching for a photographer, around Australia and internationally, and were stoked to finally find Benedict. We were very excited that he was available and we asked him if he could be our “lifetime photographer” haha, not joking”

 
 

Mitch + Tania | figtree restaurant, byron bay

“Ben is one of the friendliest people we have ever met. Genuine and engaging, we instantly got along. We found Ben very professional, whilst connecting and communicating on a personal level, making us feel very comfortable having our photo taken. It was a very natural and organic experience. Prior to the day, Ben scouted the most amazing locations for our photos. The timings for each location were impeccable, knowing the light would be perfect. Without Ben, we would not have even known these locations existed – he had everything researched and planned so meticulously. Ben was poised for our most important moments with a subtle elegance, managing to combine the beautiful surroundings and landscape as well as the raw emotion between us. we feel so much emotion from our Wedding photos; we really believe the images captured were a perfect representation of our day. We’ve recommended him to all of our friends”

 
 
 
 

myriam + chris | chateau saint jean des plats, France

“We live in Canada, got married in the south of France and hired a photographer from Australia from his photo’s and two Skype conversations. How crazy is that?
We were having a difficult time finding a local photographer who suited our style and was willing and able to shoot our wedding in the countryside of France. Running out of hope, my (now) wife sent Benedict a message vie Instagram and that spawned an amazing relationship! We could not be happier with the results we got. Benedict fit in perfectly with our friends and most people thought he was just one of our friends who happen to have some pretty fancy camera gear and a cool accent. Our whole objective was candid photo’s and subtle images and we got exactly what we wanted; in spades!
From what could have been a huge mistake, it turned out to be one of the best decisions we made…along with making a friend. I can not recommend Benedict enough…especially if you are in Eastern Canada so he can come and visit ;)”
