Australian Wedding Photographer Ben Connolly
Associate of WPPI & APP.
My name is Ben Connolly and I’m an Australian Wedding Photographer! In everything I do, I aim to be the person who, with passion and integrity enables, empowers and assists the people around me to bring their unique visions to life.
I have been working behind the camera since 1996 and have shot almost a thousand weddings in my career so far and I love creating something unique and magical every time I pick up the camera.
To many photographers, what they do is just a job, but to me it’s a passion. I photograph with a desire to create a true to life, unique photograph showing off the beauty in anyone and any body shape. I'm a lover of fashion and that carries through my work whilst at the same time creating a timeless photograph so it will never go out of fashion. My style is natural and fun, I'm a believer in what I call invisible photoshop, meaning your photographs will never be over photoshopped and will look natural and true to life. I have a cheese free diet when it comes to my work so you'll never see any of those cheesy wedding photographs or fake scenes.
I want your vision to look as amazing in twenty years as it did the day we created it.
I currently shoot around 30 weddings per year and I would love to create some magic with you at your wonderful wedding.
