Biography – Australian Wedding Photographer Ben Connolly

Sunshine Coast wedding photographers

Australian Wedding Photographer Ben Connolly .APP & Associate of WPPI

My name is Ben Connolly, I’m an Australian Wedding Photographer and I have a vision of the world where I can get up each day and inspire and help those around me to bring their unique visions to life.
My life’s work is creating a legacy for the incredible people I work with, It comes from the heart and in turn brings me closer to my vision of the world, life and career fulfilment.

Since 1996 I've shot almost a thousand weddings and I love creating something unique and magical every wedding. 

To many photographers, what they do is just a job, but to me it’s a passion that is fun and creative. I photograph with a desire to create a true to life, unique photographs showing off the beauty in anyone and any body shape. My style is a little dramatic with bright colours and natural contrast. I dare to dream the impossible in many situations and now have a reputation for creating incredible signature photos that hang as works of art in my couples homes, while also gracing the pages of divine wedding albums all over the world. 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 work with couples who really value the outcome of their wedding photos and who make the creation of their legacy a top priority on their wedding day. If you think that sounds like you and you want something incredible just reach out to me and let’s have fun, create you an incredible legacy and let’s really make your wedding day count. I shoot around 40 weddings per year and I would love to create some magic with you.

You’re in safe hands!
