Ben Clark Photography Reviews
What do his clients have to say about him ..
Ben I want to thank you for the terrific job you did with the photography at Sarah and Rohan’s wedding.
I just put together a slideshow containing some of your photographs to share with our family and friends.
In reviewing the body of your work to prepare the slideshow, I was struck by the large number of extraordinary photographs you managed to capture over the course of the day.
I am so glad that you were available to cover the wedding. Your pictures are both meaningful and memorable. We love them.
They are obviously the result of your considerable skills and efforts. I realized before the wedding that you are a talented photographer but you exceeded our expectations.
I am grateful for all of your hard work and for the outstanding results you produced.
You have left Sarah and Rohan with an enduring set of images that they and their families will always treasure.
All the best, Mark (Father of the Bride)
It was as though Ben was a friend on the day, capturing the special moments.
He was great fun to be around, was incredibly tolerant and took the most amazing pictures we could imagine.
Ben you are an absolute legend and we loved your company… thank you

Thank you sooooo much for traveling to the USA to share in our special day …..
Your attention to detail is impeccable ….. Your amazing sense of humor put us all at ease and kept us on schedule !
After looking through the final album I feel we were able to slow the day down second by second with each shot .
I can’t thank you enough for capturing out special day in a way I could not have imagined .
Thank you thank you !

When we first met Ben we walked away from our appointment thinking yep he’s the one!
He was very laid back and friendly. He was very professional on the day with things like carrying umbrellas just in case, and sticking to a time frame to ensure our day ran smoothly.
He was even very helpful with things like telling us to pack drinks and nibbles in the limo for the photo shoot, that thought just skipped our minds in the midst of planning things.
He really went above and beyond for us, offering to take us to another location in his personal car and and getting the limo to drive around the block to pick us up because there was no way i was walking back up all of those stairs in my heels!
But in all seriousness, his professionalism and uniqueness in capturing all of our precious, happy and beautiful moments, he put in a tremendous amount of effort and the passion he put into it was as if he was taking photos of his own wedding day.
You can tell that he puts a lot of thought into each photo that he captures and turns it into a story….
Steph & Barlow
Ben, in all sincerity, we can never thank you enough for all that you did for us.
Our families and guests were complimenting you all night. You gave us the gift of capturing our wedding, thank you Ben!!
Amanda and Steve
Ben, thank you for not only photographing our wedding day, but for everything else you did on the day.
You were the one folding pocket squares and pinning buttonholes on all morning, I’m not sure the guys would have made it to the chapel without you!
You made Luke feel completely comfortable from the moment we met you and that has absolutely translated into our photos.
We had complete trust in you that you were capturing every moment of our special day, even when I was covered in grasshoppers climbing through long grass and twigs!
All of our guests have raved about how fun and cruisy you were throughout the night but managed to catch our most natural and intimate moments.
We now have so many photographic memories that we will cherish forever. And so much variety!
I am so glad we left time to be able to get such an awesome variety of photos – thank you for finding the best spots all around our venue – you make simple spaces look so amazing.
Thank you again for capturing our special day in the most incredible way 🙂

Cometh the wedding, cometh the man!!
From our first meeting with Ben, we were taken by his calm and fun manner and so it proved right up to our wedding day itself.
He is a genuine delight to work with, and knows his stuff – he literally put his life on the line to stop traffic for us (making for sweet photographs of us walking down Hastings St, Noosa Heads).
Everyone loved him and everyone looked good because of him, even during a challenging midday wedding on a sunny day.
Our day wouldn’t have been the same without you, and you have our thanks Ben.
Honor & Alex
We just wanted to say thank you so so much for everything the other day.
You were amazing and honestly really made our day to be as special as it was. You went above and beyond and we cannot thank you enough.
We are so excited to see the photos as we know you have done an amazing job.
Thank you so so much again.

Oh geez where do I start?
From the first time I spoke with Ben I could tell he was someone who you would want to have around you on your wedding day – I’m not a huge fan of having my photo taken and neither is my husband so having someone who could make us feel relaxed and comfortable on the day was priority. Ben is so good at what he does, you’d be excused for thinking that it was one of your friends behind that camera lens.
We had so much fun and not once did Ben put us into some contrived pose – everything was natural and relaxed which is exactly what I wanted.
Our guests loved him too!
Emily & Dirk
The feed back that we have had from the blog has been incredible.
With lots of comments such as. Your photos made me cry.
Makes me wish I had my wedding like that and I wish we had a photographer with that relaxed style makes such a big difference. Etc etc etc! Your amazing!
Well done Ben!
Claire & Noah
Just a quick email to say a big huge thank you!!
Thank you for your professional, friendly and efficient service; thank you for your wedding tips and hints; and thank you for capturing so many incredible shots of our day and turning these into a beautiful album for us. It is amazing and we can’t wait to show it off!
It has been an absolute pleasure and I think it goes without saying that we will definitely recommend your services to future brides and grooms.
We wish you all the best for the future and hope you have a very merry Christmas.
We look forward to keeping up with your work on Facebook 🙂

“Such a fun photographer! Great sense of humour! Thanks for a being part of the fun!”
“Best photographer ever- you were such a calming influence to us on the day, such a great guy- you made our day better. Thank you so much Ben I will never stop recommending you.”
“Just amazing photography”
“Thanks so much for photographing our wedding. We have had guests comment upon how unobtrusive and respectful you were on the night.”
We wanted to write to you to thank you and Lisa for doing such a great job on our wedding day and to tell you how grateful we are to have such beautiful keepsakes from the day. You have superb talent and have captured so many lovely memories for us that we will look back on and cherish for years to come. If you felt your ears burning for the last couple of months, it’s because we’ve been telling everyone how great you are and how thrilled we are with our photos. Thank you.
When we met you, we found you really easy to get along with and receptive to what we wanted. We were particularly impressed that you took the time to explain and demonstrate the difference between an original photo, a colour corrected photo and an edited photo. As amateurs in this area we felt a little bamboozled when talking to other photographers about the edited photos we would be paying for, but you made this abundantly clear and we felt really well informed at the end of the meeting.
While we were in your office, we also noticed all the AIPP awards on your wall, which you never drew to our attention but which made us quietly confident that we were in excellent hands.
You were a pleasure to deal with, and you and Lisa had the perfect demeanor you were professional, organised, but also really relaxed and happy to have a laugh with us along the way. You never bossed us around, and you let us do our thing, never getting in the way of anything. Many of our friends and family made a point of telling us (on the wedding day and the days which followed) how impressed they were with you and Lisa. This was completely unprompted and before they’d seen any of your work – so what greater testament could there be to your professionalism and friendly demeanor. Even more compliments flowed once they had seen your work!
Another reason we chose you was for the way we knew you would be able to command the wedding guests into position in a respectful but assertive way. We had absolute confidence that you would be able to direct our rowdy families into position for group shots, remind them to keep their eyes open, move to positions where they could be seen, or take their sunglasses off their heads !
During the ceremony and the reception we can honestly say we barely noticed you or Lisa because you captured the moments so seamlessly. Neither of us enjoys posing for photos, so the way you both stood back and captured the day as it happened meant that you were able to capture beautifully natural photos which we absolutely LOVE.
It might seem strange to mention this, but we also appreciated the professionalism shown by you and Lisa in the way you dressed. We’ve noticed as guests at other weddings that it can be difficult to snap a photo of the bride and groom without also getting the back of the photographer in the photo. The way you and Lisa dressed formally and professionally ensured that any photos you were in weren’t detracted from by someone in casual dress.
A big thank you also for how quickly you turned around the blog entry! Some of our friends have waited several months before seeing any images from their day, and you had sent us a sneak peak photo the next morning, and the blog was up with a lovely selection of your work within a week! It was so nice for us to be able to share the link with friends and family so soon after the big day, and also for us to sit back and relive the memories while on our honeymoon.
We could go on and on but really just want to say a big, big heartfelt THANK YOU to you and your lovely wife Lisa who have made our special day even more special by giving us memories that will last us a lifetime.
We wish you the best for the future and will continue to recommend you to everyone we know.

I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times before, but myself and Elliott really wanted to say a proper Thank You to you for all the work you did for our wedding day and our wedding album. We are so so happy with our album, it’s absolutely beautiful and we are just so impressed at how wonderfully it turned out. We both took a day to take the album to our workplaces to show it off 🙂 and everybody that looked through it said it was the best album they have ever seen, a lot of them had never seen an album like that before and they all loved it. My mother in law started crying whilst looking through it, my sister in law said she wanted to get re-married just so they could have an album like ours and the comments go on and on! We just wanted to say thank you for all the effort, time and patience you put into making it so lovely.
I also wanted to say thank you for your work on our wedding day. I am the fourth to get married in my family, so we’ve had our run with photographers. My Father was so impressed at how relaxed you were and how you were able to just flow and adjust with the day, regardless of the schedule. We’ve had a few pushy photographers in the past and it can definitely impact on the mood of the day. So thank you for being so easy going and positive on our wedding day.
I have and will continue to recommend you to everyone I know that is getting married. We couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out!!
Keep up the great photos!!
Sarah and Elliott
The album is AMAZING!!! It’s definitely one of the best investments we’ve made in the wedding apart from having you involved. You’ve given us everything we’d hoped for and more! When we chose you as our photographer we hoped you would capture the emotion at the wedding and you definitely did just this! Everyone who has seen the album are just blown away! Thank you for being a great bloke to work with, getting to know us and capturing our special day as we remember it! We look through the album and can experience our day almost all over again.
Thank you thank you thank you.

Finding Ben for our wedding photographer was an absolute god-send.
We organised our wedding in Brisbane from overseas and despite the distance, there was no hassle in planning the running order of the day.
Ben’s easy-going, laid back but professional approach suited us and our wedding perfectly.
Ben’s photographs were magical. He captured the mood of the day, the laughter, the emotion and celebration well into the evening. We loved the amazing locations that he identified and now have the most stunning memorabilia to mark our special occasion.
We were pleasantly surprised to see a great selection of our photos on his blog within a few days of our wedding and we have been able to work on our stunning album from abroad without a hitch.
Thanks Ben for your professional, friendly, cool approach and know that we have been recommending you to all and sundry – brides and grooms (and anyone who will listen)

Firstly a huge thank you for your wonderful photographs that we have been privy to. I know Keon and Sharny are absolutely delighted, along with our family and friends, doing what is a day’s work for you, but making a life time of memories for us. Thanks Ben
Your support from the very first moment will be remembered ” do you mind if I adjust your lapel flower” and it went from there. I was so sure you were a friend of Keon’s, your friendly, warm and easy manner making us feel so comfortable – even with a lens staring down our faces 🙂 All for posterity . . .
Congratulations Ben, keep on doing your wonderful work, we wish you well for the years ahead.

We just had our first glimpse at our album. WOW. What an amazing album it is.
I did have very high expectations only because I saw what you were capable of. Our album is everything I hoped for and much, much more. Thank you so much for your incredible attention to detail and ability to capture exactly what we were looking for.
You have given us the greatest wedding gift of all – a life time of memories and moments we can look at at anytime.
Thank you so much.
Nat and James
We can’t thank you enough for the amazing job you did with our wedding photos. We had such a blast on the day, especially getting our location shots done, and the DVD that you put together for the reception was fantastic. Almost every guest commented to us on the night about how great the DVD was, how beautiful the photos were, and what an amazing photographer you are- and we couldn’t agree more!!
When we first saw your images on your website, we knew you would do a great job, and once we met you and discovered your professional, yet easy going and fun nature, we were confident that not only would the photos be brilliant, but also that we would have a great time and a good laugh while having them taken. You certainly lived up to this expectation!
Our album (and the parent albums) that you created are so beautiful and really captured the emotion of the day!
Thanks so much for helping to make our day so much fun, and for the stunning images that you captured. We will always look at those photos with a smile and the memory of a wonderful day.
