Because almost 1000 other couples have!
If you’re the type of couple who value high quality experiences, beautiful memories and creativity excites you, then you’ve come to the right place. I don’t do boring, so why should you!
With that said I’m NOT that photographer who just rocks up on your wedding day and does just enough to get the job done. I’m heavily invested in your wedding and your experience, I want you to love your photos and your album because my business relies on you loving your experience and sharing your it with the people you care about and I take that responsibility very seriously.
As a result of my dedication to my couples, exceptional service and creativity, Ive been recognised with almost 100 Australian and International awards in the past 5 years.
In 2020 I was privileged to be ranked in the TOP 10 Wedding Photographers in Australia by the European, Italian and Asian Photography Organisations, I attained my Masters of Photography designation from WPPI USA, won the Asia WPA Wedding Album of the Year Grand Award and was named Asia Photographer of the Year for 2020.
While that all sounds fantastic, what’s in it for you?
In the past 16 years, almost 1000 couples have told me that creativity and quality, combined with a personality thats fun and trustworthy are the attributes they valued most in me and the experience I gave them at their wedding.
Finding and booking your wedding photographer shouldn’t be painful or uncertain which is why I work very hard before, during and after your wedding to ensure you love the memories while feeling confident and cared for thought your entire experience with me.
Prior to your day I help you with careful planning, I pay attention to all the details and listen to what you really desire from your day. This allows me to ensure we achieve your vision.
I work with you to create a plan with timing & locations for your whole day that will guarantee you a world class experience, stunning photographs and time to actually stop, breathe and enjoy your day along with being at the other end of the phone any hour of the day if you ever have a problem!
Confidence to book your wedding suppliers is pretty sketchy at the moment with all this COVID drama and I completely understand your fears around locking in suppliers, so I want you to know that if you choose to book with me and we need to postpone or move dates once, twice, even 5 times (yes it happened last year)
I simply move your booking fee to your new date and we carry on as planned, no silly fees and no hoops to jump through…
Yes I make it that simple because it just doesn’t need to be hard or stressful, you’ve got enough going on!
Hi, thanks for visiting!
My name's Ben Connolly and I'm a Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer, International Speaker, Judge and Teacher.
The reason why I do this job is because I have a vision of the world where each day I can inspire and help those around me to bring their unique visions to life. I also just love what I do! My most important advice for you when planning your wedding is to engage the professionals around you who you connect with on a personal level.
Sadly many couples roll the dice on their once in a lifetime event with cheap options, sales manipulations and inexperience, some beat the odds and win, but most regret it.When you choose professionals based on your connection with them, you'll create your "A Team". We then guide you all the way, hold your hand (sometimes literally), we'll never be too busy to help you and we'll steer you clear of disasters.
Your "A Team" do so much more than just their job, we're invested in your amazing vision and we'll bring it to life, while also being at the other end of the phone anytime you need us!
Below is a very short video that has nothing to do with your wedding or photography, nor is it there to sell you, it’s there so that you can see if my personality and values match with yours. If you feel I’m not the person for you, that’s ok, I totally understand and I hope you have an incredible wedding day, but if it touches you, then let’s have a casual chat about your vision & if you would like me to be a part of it.
How much is it and what do we get?
I offer 4 Wedding Photography Collections starting at just $1997 inc. GST
I keep things simple and flexible, there’s no hourly packages to limit you. I’m with you for the whole day capturing all those magic moments up to and including 1 hour of reception coverage. You’ll receive a gorgeous crystal and gold USB containing 500 – 800 carefully retouched high resolution photos with no watermarks and printable at any photo lab.
Please use the form provided to submit your enquiry and I will contact you ASAP to discuss your wedding photography.
