Documentary Wedding Photographer Midlands
I am a creative documentary wedding photographer from the Midlands, UK. My style could be termed as natural, un posed story telling photography. I aim to work in the most unobtrusive manner possible; photographing your wedding discreetly yet observantly, capturing naturally all the moments to piece together the full story of your special wedding day. I will keep on the periphery, but equally, be there be there too - to hand, but not in the way. In doing so, my wedding photography will tell the story of your day so you can look back fondly on the parts you remember - but also, reminisce over the parts that were sometimes a blur in the heat and excitement of the moment; possibly otherwise forgotten.
I love nature, trees, leaves and my favourite subject in nature is often dandelion clocks. Before getting into wedding photography, these were my main subjects. I soon realised that the transition into becoming a wedding photographer wasn't really too far removed from what I was already doing while wandering around the countryside. So consequently, I treat seeking details at a wedding with the same kind of approach. I mingle and float around on the wedding day looking for details and moments to capture at every opportunity. Naturally, I'm particularly fond of any wedding in such earthly organic surroundings - such as woodland weddings, farm weddings etc etc..
"Ben recently photographed our wedding and we cannot say enough great words about him. He asked us exactly what we wanted and captured the day in an entirely natural way. His website speaks for itself but we were really blown away with the fantastic shots of the day."

Although I've mainly undertaken my natural and creative documentary wedding photography in the East Midlands (having photographed weddings in South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire) I have also photographed weddings in the Cotswolds, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. I am happy to travel further afield too - especially to my favourite place ~ Dartmoor ~ . If you are having a wedding here then please get in touch! Another place dear to my heart is the Scottish Highlands. Again, if you are getting married here - then please let me know as I'd probably love to be your Scottish Highland wedding photographer! Some of my photos from Scotland are here...
Please see my prices page for more details. I have also photographed events such as birthday parties and opening launch parties for wedding boutiques. So if you have a need for a photographer for anything at all then please contact me to discuss further and I can give you a quote.
