How long have you been a wedding photographer for?
I’ve been a full time wedding photographer for a little over 8 years now, but I have been working on live events and commercial work for over 10 years
How do we book?
I always think it’s important to meet first or at least a zoom call. A chance to get to know each other better. If that all goes well a booking fee of £500 is required to book.
Unlike many wedding photographers, I don’t offer packages. I think they are a bit dated and a little non-personal so I offer everything for just the one price which is £2500 for 2021/2022.
I offer a pre shoot to all my couples which is included in the price. This isn't some cheesy, posey, OTT shoot. It's just about hanging out with my couples a few months before the wedding day, catching up over a beer and then helping them to feel more comfortable in front of the camera. This means that on the wedding day, couple photos are super chilled, relaxed and even enjoyable!
Death Row Meal?
My death row meal would be: Starter: Chilli Squid Main: A Japanese feast Pudding: Sticky Toffee Pudding Drink: Old Fashioned Cocktail
Ben was recommended to us by practically everyone we spoke to! He works alongside his wife and they are a genuinely lovely couple. We met with him twice before the wedding so on the day it felt like having a friend there (most of our guests thought that he was). He orchestrated all the family and friend photos perfectly in about 10 minutes and our 'couple photos' in the same so we didn't miss any of the day. He has the ability to capture beautiful, sincere and natural moments and it was a pleasure to have him share our Wedding day. We have about 800 beautiful photos of the day which we couldn't be more happy with. I couldn't recommend him or his work enough. Thank you so much Ben!
Ben was simply fantastic! not only a truly amazing photographer who captured our intimate Covid wedding perfectly but also our guide throughout the whole process from recommending timings to keeping us positive whilst are plans kept a changing due to Covid. Ben was so amazing on our wedding day our guests are still singing his praises. We haven’t just found a great photographer but also a friend! Thanks Ben !!
The experience with Benjamin was incredible from start to finish. We cannot recommend him enough. From the first meeting we had with him, through to the wedding day, the entire experience was so professional and friendly. He is so easy to get on with and made both of us feel at ease throughout the entire process - on the wedding day it was like greeting an old friend (which helped with the nerves!). We both really enjoyed being able to have an easy going engagement shoot too, which was great practice for the wedding itself. And the photos...just WOW. They really tell a story and captured the spirit and the joy of the day. If you're looking for a down to earth photographer for your wedding, who actually gets to know the couple and gives them full attention, and is incredible talented - go with Benjamin Stuart Photography! We also enlisted in his decor/stationary business Copper & Card for our seating plan too and highly recommend looking in to that as well.
