Callow Hall Wedding, Ashbourne, Derbyshire
Benjamin recently photographed our wedding at the end of August and we are absolutely in love with all of the photograhs.
We choose Benjamin following a lengthy google search and also finding his work on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings in some of the real-life wedding pages. We really loved his natural unassuming style and after reading his web page and about his love of nature and the outdoors we thought it would be a good match, which it was. It was easy to communicate with Benjamin prior to the wedding and during the day. At times I don't think we noticed Benjamin at all and it has been lovely receiving the photographs of things that were happening else where across the day. The photographs we have really depict the feel of the day and feel really personal - with Benjamin catching both the big and little parts of the day. We have shared the album with our friends and family who are all very impressed with all the photographs. Thank you again.
Chequers Inn Wedding, Woolsthorpe by Belvoir,
The brief for our wedding photos, was natural and un-posed. After finding Benjamin on Google and viewing his portfolio it was obvious he was going to be a natural fit. We met with Benjamin a month before the wedding and were instantly filled with confidence. Benjamin has an excellent eye, and being unobtrusive, our day felt really natural. The photos came back within 3 weeks and they were absolutely stunning. Benjamin had captured moments we missed, and it was a sheer pleasure to review the photos after the main event. I can not recommend Thomas Thomas Photography highly enough, Benjamin was an absolute pleasure to deal with in both the run up to the day and during the day itself.

We chose Ben to be our Wedding photographer because we really wanted natural, unposed photos that had a really special & personal feel to them. Well the photos we received from Ben, just 3 & 1/2 weeks after our wedding, exceeded every expectation & we are completely in love with every single picture!
It's very hard to choose any favourites because they are all so special in their own way, we couldn't be happier!
If you're looking for a journalistic style & you want someone to capture all the special moments throughout the day, then book Ben! He's also excellent value & super friendly!
Thank you Ben! You've really done an amazing job & helped take our minds off the wedding/honeymoon blues!

Hornington Manor Barn Wedding, Yorkshire
We can't recommend Ben enough - we were absolutely blown away with the beautiful photos that he took of our wedding day, and they captured the day perfectly. Ben was brilliant to work with, giving thoughtful advice about lighting and timings in the run up to the wedding, and incredibly discrete and carefully positioned on the day.
The day goes by so quickly it's important that you choose a photographer that will really capture all of those special moments and reflect who you are as a couple, which we really feel like Ben did for us. We couldn't be happier with the choice we made.
Thank you Ben!

What a fantastic wedding photographer Ben is! His photos are gorgeous; he's friendly, great with guests and has a brilliant eye for the small details. We couldn't be happier with our photos and would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone who's looking for natural, creative, documentary style pictures.
Thanks so much again, Ben!

Tipi Wedding, Bawdon Lodge Farm, Leicestershire
As soon as we saw Ben's portfolio online we knew that he would be the perfect photographer for our tipi wedding. The pictures we saw looked so natural, and really fitted in with our preference for a more documentary style set of photos (we're not very good at posing!)
Ben was so helpful when we spoke on the phone, and really keen to be involved which was great! On the day he was brilliant, just the perfect mix of 'there and not there', meaning that he captured everything really perfectly without being intrusive at all. Since receiving the photos, everyone has said how perfectly the captured the day - which is exactly what we wanted - and we couldn't agree more! It was raining quite a lot in the morning whilst guests were arriving, and Ben has managed to capture beautiful photos of guests with umbrella smiling and laughing - even in the rain!
We would highly recommend Ben, and we're so glad we chose Thomas Thomas Photography to capture our day. Thank you Ben!
Rick & Emily
Cattows Farm Wedding, Leicesteshire
Benjamin photographed our summer wedding and we can't thank him enough for his work. From the very beginning, Benjamin took the time to understand the feel and style of our day. His communication throughout was excellent. On the day, he worked tirelessly - from the bride getting ready, to the service, through the reception and finishing with the evening dance.
He has the ability to capture the day as a story, getting the shots which you just wouldn't have seen yourself on the day and did it all so well that you just didn't notice at times (that's a good thing!!) Not only was Benjamin a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding and on the day, but his work afterwards was incredible.
We've had so many people comment on how good they are and we just love showing them to people! If you want a brilliant documentary style photographer (who's also a great guy!) to capture your big day then you must ask Benjamin! Thank you.

Cotswold Woodland Wedding
We simply could not have wished for a better photographer for our wedding! Ben arrived in the morning and was unstoppable from the get-go until the last dance. He was everywhere something was going on: documenting the bride and groom getting ready, capturing the guests enjoying the atmosphere, noticing the little details we’ve put so much passion into and taking pictures of real emotions not just between us as the bride and groom but also between everyone else who was present.
His documentary-style photography really captured the true charm of our wedding and brings us back to the different moments every time we look at his beautiful photographs. He has a real talent for naturally becoming part of your day without you feeling watched. That really enabled him to capture very intimate and personal moments without having to stage them. Besides fantastic natural photos of the whole day, he also took amazing couple and group shots in creative settings and from interesting angles, commanding the crowd incredibly well. The choice and quality of the finished photographs has been so overwhelmingly fantastic that we still can’t believe we have these stunning memories of our wedding. We will recommend Ben to everyone we know.

The Walled Garden Wedding, Nottinghamshire
We came across Ben online and were instantly drawn in by his portfolios. Our wedding was set in a Victorian garden and we wanted our photos to reflect the unstructured and somewhat wild settings.
From our very first conversation with Ben we felt that he understood exactly what we wanted - Nothing posed, no group shots, just a series of moments captured throughout the day that told our story - and the photos didn't disappoint!
We were truly delighted with our images, there were plenty of them too! Laughter, tears, friends, family, all sharing moments throughout the day, the children playing, running, jumping, climbing and hiding under tables! Ben was incredibly discreet and captured moments we hadn't even realised had happened! Our bride and groom shots were truly stunning and he really made our scenic setting come to life in the images.
We cannot speak highly enough, or give big enough thanks. Two very happy customers who would (and have) recommend!

Being able to look back at pictures and remember our wedding day has been and will continue to be something we do with great happiness and it's made even better because our pictures were so perfect. Ben captured the essence of our day, the joy, the little looks, the expressive faces and all those little moments that you might miss in the whirlwind of the day but get to see time and time again in these beautiful photographs.
We would highly recommend this company for photos. Professional service and an incredible product! Thank you for capturing our day!
Working with Ben is tremendous. He has a brilliantly artistic and unique eye and I am always amazed and delighted at his captivating images. His sensitive and charming approach makes a shoot with Ben a great experience and he is always keen to ensure a happy, open and constructive environment. As a musician I am regularly complimented on my official photography, and Ben has been responsible for all of this.
Put simply, he is the best photographer I've worked with, and will always be my first choice!
Company Manager, Bullfrog Arts, Leicester
I was lucky enough to meet Benjamin at an evening gig. Afterwards he sent through some of the most amazing images that he'd captured over the course of the night. Now, if I ever have a need for an image whether for a website, marketing, social media or simply to enjoy looking at a beautiful image, I would look no further.
For both nature, music, people and life he has an incredible sensitivity to his subject giving honesty, beauty and yet always a sense of mystery and wonder. He is a seriously talented photographer but also a true artist who is bound for notorious success and far reaching recognition. And when, in the near future, this success renders him beyond our price range I shall continue to browse the galleries of his website where he shares a treasure trove of magical images.
Thank you Benjamin.

Woodland Waters Wedding, Ancaster
It was so lovely to have Benjamin involved in our special day - from our first email exchange and Skype we knew he was the one for us. He had thought about the little details, even down to the time of the sunset on our wedding day in order to get the best photos. I have never liked having my photograph taken but I felt completely at ease with Benjamin; he was unobtrusive and captured so many beautiful, natural shots of the day. So many of our guests have commented on the great job he did on the day.
As for the photos themselves...just wow! We couldn’t have expected them to be this brilliant, we absolutely love them. Benjamin managed to capture the atmosphere of our wedding beautifully (and clearly understood our love for our puppy and got some fantastic shots of him too!)
We are so pleased we decided to use Thomas Thomas Photography, the photos are worth every penny. We would recommend Benjamin to anyone who wants stunning, natural wedding photos.

Ben photographed our spring wedding and we were thrilled with the results.
He completely captured the feel and the story of the day and looking back on them helped us to remember how amazing it was.
He was adaptable and flexible throughout and none of the photos feel unnatural, posed or forced- which is exactly what we wanted. We've had so many comments on how beautiful the photos are and can't wait to print them.
Thanks so much Ben!

Benjamin is an incredible and wonderfully creative photographer. We were so impressed with our wedding photographs and have received so many compliments on the natural style.
Benjamin is unobtrusive (we struggled to notice him after a while) and incredibly friendly. Nothing was too much trouble and he excelled in stitching our quirky plans together into a beautifully documented story.
He captured the emotions, details and atmosphere of our day perfectly.
We couldn't have chosen a better way to capture our special day and it was an absolute pleasure to have him as our photographer. Thank you so much!

From first contacting Benjamin, the whole process was flawless. We were wowed by his natural style and from previous tipi weddings, if he can make it look great in the rain that's a winner!
Benjamin was professional throughout the process, really engaging up to the wedding to know all of our quirky little details.
We are so pleased with the results. The woodland shots are fantastic and he's really captured the comedy moments. We felt comfortable throughout and barely noticed he was around.
We've had so many compliments and finding it difficult to chose the photos to put up as there are so many.
Thank you for being our photographer.

Peak District Wedding
Benjamin was great, we couldn't have asked for anything more from our wedding photographer.
The pictures were great and Benjamin was only too happy to help us out on the big day, at one point he even drove us to a secluded area so we could get some great scenic shots.
We're very glad we picked him and that we will have the pictures to last us a lifetime.
Ruth & Davy
Bridge House Barn Wedding
We found Benjamin when looking for photographers who had done other 'tipi' weddings. We weren't disappointed!
Benjamin was very friendly and polite and made the whole process very simple for us. He seemed to understand exactly what we wanted from the beginning. We asked for very relaxed photos, of happy smiling faces. He worked extremely hard on the day to ensure he captured everything we wanted, and as a result we are extremely happy!And we barely even noticed he was there..
Thank you so much Benjamin!
Ruth and Davy!

Benjamin photographed our wedding at the beginning of September and we were thrilled with the outcome of the photos. We wanted a natural style for our photos, capturing the emotions of the day, and all the little details of the venue and day. We recommend Benjamin highly, he was great on the day and very responsive with correspondence in the run up to the day.
Thanks for everything!

We are absolutely over the moon with our incredible photos provided by Benjamin at Thomas Thomas Photography.
Benjamin is so very talented and captured our special day perfectly. We wanted the shots to be as natural as possible and Benjamin did this beautifully.
Benjamin was extremely professional, friendly and put us both at ease on the day.
We cannot recommend Benjamin any more highly; we are truly in awe of our wedding photographs!

West Mill Wedding, Derbyshire
Benjamin photographed our wedding on 15th December and we have already received over 400 absolutely amazing photos. Ben has captured our day in such a special and I think unique way. He has captured real moments, real fun and real emotions. There are no overly staged moments, it is all just real love.
On the day Ben was such an unobtrusive presence, capturing everything without being noticed, I am so awkward when I know my picture is being taken and I was dreading a day of a camera being on me but Ben was so discreet I had no idea my picture was being taken and we now have the most beautiful, natural photographs.
If you want natural, honest photos that tell the story of your day then you can't find better than Ben, a lovely personality and the most amazing photographer. We can't recommend him or thank him enough.
