Amazing & memory making

Ben was amazing from when we first booked with him. He explained we would get a pre wedding photo shoot, and this was arranged about 4 months prior to the big day and was used as a get to know each other. We received approximately 40 photos from this via email. Then on the big day Ben was total amazing we booked him for 8 hours and he was there a little longer due to issues with the dances, he has happy to remain until all the special dances were completed. Throughout the day Ben blended in with the guests and took the photo he needed to with been too obvious so we got some great natural shots. He listened to what we want and took those we requested.
The after care was superb also. We received the photos via email within 6 weeks edited with approximately 400 photos taken from the day., which we could share with those we wanted too. We then received a memory stick with all the photos on this was presented it鈥檚 a wooden box with a special photo on with a key ring meaning we can print all the photos from the day and save them. This was hand delivered by Ben. He is very friendly was so happy we chose him to capture our special day. Thank you Ben

Ben Stoney is an amazing photographer!

We first met Ben for a pre shoot and instantly felt at ease with him. He made everything comfortable and easy from the moment we made contact. On our wedding day, you鈥檇 hardly know Ben was there because he was so subtle all day long. The photographs he produced were incredible - everyone we have shared them with have all commented on how brilliant they are. We are chuffed to bits and would use Ben again if we ever had any photography needs. You are brilliant!

Excellent wedding photgrapher

Ben did a wonderful job as our wedding photographer. From the relaxed and engaging pre-shoot a few weeks before the big day to his professional, personable and discreet work at the church and reception venue, Ben was a pleasure to deal with and we'd highly recommend him. And we're delighted with the end result too, as we have over 500 lovely photos with which to cherish the memories.

Friendly, professional and amazing photos

We were lucky enough to have Ben photograph our wedding in Cornwall last year. Ben was quick to respond to initial enquiries and took time to understand our vision. On the day he made us and the guests feel extremely comfortable and I couldn鈥檛 be more happy with the final photos. Thanks again Ben!

Above and beyond

Ben was so friendly and helpful from the very beginning! He took so much time to make sure he captured everything we asked for from guests to room decorations. We wanted a relaxed and natural style of photos and Ben was brilliant and capturing the atmosphere of the wedding. He made me feel so relaxed and comfortable and he was there to help for anything we needed and last minute requests. Our photo gallery was beautiful to look at and all our friends and family agreed what a friendly and amazing photographer Ben is! We chose the option to have our photos on a USB and the presentation of this was amazing, personalised and hand delivered! I would highly recommend Ben, he felt like more of a friend than just a photographer!

Beautiful photos and wonderful service

We booked Ben ahead of our April 2020 wedding which, sadly, didn鈥檛 go ahead. He was really responsive and flexible in the the reorganisation of our day, and did a fantastic job of photographing our wedding for 15 guests. I should also say that Ben is a really nice guy and was great at putting us at ease on the day. He also included an engagement shoot for us and we love those photos just as much as our wedding ones. Highly recommend!
