‘Your photographer was absolutely brilliant’ said pretty much all my wedding guests.

Ben, you really were amazing and we can’t thank you enough. You were also so much more, keeping us in check with timing to help make the day run smoothly.

The biggest thanks to you and the highest recommendation we can give.

We spent the evening looking through all our wedding pictures that you captured and we absolutely love them. The naturally shots you got of all our family and friends are just beautiful and captured the joy of the day so perfectly. 

Thank you so much, you are amazing at what you do!

I genuinely don’t even know where to begin - Ben is honestly amazing! We couldn’t have wished for a better photographer. Ben was unreal from start to finish, so professional and fun to have around on the day. He captured so many natural moments and it’s unbelievable how he manages to get so many fantastic shots on his own. All of our guests have commented on how brilliant he was on the day and put everyone, especially us, at ease. The photos tell the story of our day from start to finish. Ben, we couldn’t be happier with the photos, they’re everything we wanted and more... thank you so, so much! X

We first met Ben 7 years ago when we were looking for someone to take some natural photographs of our daughter as we are not big fans of posed studio pictures. Ben did a fantastic job and got such beautiful pictures amongst the trees also making it really fun.

Now that we have 3 little girls we just had our third shoot with Ben and it was fantastic!! Ben is SO good with little ones, he puts them at ease immediately and makes them giggle, resulting in really great, unstaged shots. 

We will treasure our photos for years to come, thank you Ben x

I cannot recommend Ben & his services highly enough. As a business we use Ben on a regular basis for corporate head shots and photographing company events. Ben is always extremely professional, easy to work with and always returns the results we desire. His photographs are always to the brief, of high quality and he always turns them around quickly meaning we never have to wait for the photos to come back to us. Working with Ben is an absolute pleasure.

Our wedding photos are amazing - never mind the bubbly, I needed a box of tissues next to me whilst viewing them! They really brought back all the emotion of the day which you captured so well. We are definitely going to find it difficult to chose which ones we want to have printed as there are so many good ones!

Thank you again for everything you did on our wedding day and I don't just mean taking photos. You were a very calming influence  - it was great having you around!

Thanks again

Having found Blooming Photography through an internet search, for my parents 50th wedding anniversary, I was a bit apprehensive about what to expect.  However I can honestly say it was a pleasure working with you throughout the whole process from initial enquiry to receiving the final prints.  Ben was easy going and professional and knew exactly what to do to get the best out of us to take fabulous, natural photographs.  My parents were thrilled to bits with the final results.  I'd have no hesitation in recommending Blooming Photography to anyone.  Thank you Ben

Ben put us at ease from the moment we met him. Neither myself nor my husband enjoy having our photo being taken and Ben managed to capture some wonderful moments. So many guests commented on how well he blended in to the background allowing everyone to remain relaxed, resulting in the fantastic pictures he produced! Thank you so much.

Having undertaken a rebrand of our membership magazines, photography became a really important factor with getting the right feel and look moving forwards. Ben has worked with our new style to bring life to our cover stars, drawing out their personalities and individualism. Some of our cover stars have never had a photoshoot like this before and Ben worked really well with them to make them feel comfortable and get the best out of them. We’ve been really pleased with the photographs and hear nothing but positive comments from our readers. 

We have also used Ben to take photographs at key events this year, including our National Conference & Awards and our Official Office Opening. Both of these events needed someone we could rely on to deliver excellent photos that get the overall feel and energy of the event. Ben is great at capturing key moments and because he’s well-rehearsed in this we don’t need to worry about the photos as we know he will have captured everything we needed him to.

Absolutely amazing wedding photographer! Professional and totally blended in with wedding guests! The photos that Ben managed to capture completely sum up the fun and beauty of the day- He’s a very clever man. If you’re hesitating booking him, rest assured, you won’t regret having him there on your big day. It’s the best money we spent! Ben went way and beyond to ensure that he got the shots that we had requested and his sense of humour and good nature made light of some of the more stressful parts of the day. Ben was a wonderful pleasure to have around.

He has managed to deliver exceptional results in portraits, studio product photography, workshop action shots, in place product imagery through to being on site in a power plant capturing our product in operation.

Ben did the photography for my sister's wedding and i can honestly say that he was a lovely addition to the day. Charming and funny, he managed to be everywhere at once without ever being in the way, and from the sneak peak I have just seen he captured some absolutely stunning pictures of my sister and her new husband looking very natural and happy, along with some awesome group shots. Having so much experience of shooting weddings means Ben is actually a huge help on the day... he actually reminded me when it was time to help her put her dress on in the chaos of everyone getting made up and ready in the morning! Ben worked extremely hard from a very early start to pretty late in the day, and I would not hesitate for a second to recommend him to anyone for their wedding day photography. Absolute top marks for a top photographer... thank you Ben!!

Ben totally delivers. We called on Ben to photograph the new members of our new team and the results were perfect. He is completely down to earth and put everyone at ease, which made for a relaxed, creative and inspiring shoot. We have also used Ben for live event photography and both our client and the team were very pleased with the results. We highly recommend.

Hi Ben I'm not sure any email I can write will quite convey how happy we are with our wedding pictures... you have done the most amazing job and looking through them was like living through the day again. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Not only did you take the most beautiful pictures but you were also a great person to have around on the day. Lucy and Tom

Ben fit in with our style and feel of our wedding which was festival themed. The whole day including the ceremony was outdoors in Devon and Ben really captured the beauty of the landscape (I also think he brought the weather as it was a terrible summer but a hot sunny day on the big day). The pictures he took of guests were really natural and caught them with smiles on their faces. We got to enjoy our day all over again when we looked at the pics. Thanks so much Ben, we can't recommend you highly enough.

We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer than Ben. He captured our day beautifully and made our guests feel relaxed with his positive, fun-filled approach. He is the perfect blend of professionalism and personality - and his work is of the very highest quality. He helped create lasting memories for us to cherish. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.

Having met Ben at a friends wedding a year before we knew we were in good hands. Ben was professional from start to finish but with a warm friendly approach. On the day he made us and our guests feel at ease and most of the time we didn’t even know he was there. The photos he has produced are amazing especially the ones that he managed to catch without us knowing. We would certainly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much for giving so many brilliant memories to keep.

If your thinking of booking Ben for your wedding, definitely do it, you won’t be disappointed! Just perfect

We met Ben at a wedding Fayre and loved his energy and passion straight away. His relaxed, personal approach was just what we were looking for so without hesitation we booked him for our big day. Ben kept in touch with us and met up with us prior to the wedding to make sure everything went to plan. He listened intently to what we wanted and understood the family dynamics. On the day Ben was fab! He managed the busy bridal party on the morning of the wedding so well and was the best support to me when I had a melt down as we were running late! I can’t thank him enough for this. After the ceremony he organised all the guests for pictures calmly and but within the timeframe given by the caterers. We had so many people comment on how lovely and approached he was. The final pictures arrived quickly and we could not have been happier! There was a range of different pictures which all captured the day perfectly! Lots of happy, smiley people. I have and would recommend Ben to people over and over again. The most perfect pictures that we will cherish as a family forever.

We chose Ben after seeing one of his albums at Hyde Barn. We were not disappointed. Ben is really approachable and really listened to what sort of photos we wanted on the big day. Ben was amazing on the day as he really puts you at ease. He wasn't obstructive or intrusive. A lot of the time you didn't know he was there! We had a bit of a challenge with the weather but this did not stop him from getting fabulous shots. We LOVE the photos. Thank you so much xxxx
