HUNter valley & newcastle wedding photographer
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!
I want to know your story!

KIND WORDS FROM KIND PEOPLE
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
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. We had so much fun with him on our engagement and Wedding shoots. 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. The balance between location shots, styling details and personal moments was exactly what we hoped for and we could not be happier with the final product. Looking back, we feel so much emotion from our Wedding photos; we really believe the images captured were a perfect representation of our day. We cannot thank Ben enough for the extraordinary photos we have of our Wedding Day. We’ve recommended him to all of our friends.
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. ;)
