Welcome to another ‘Real Life’ Wedding!
Today Katey & Jarrod are our newlyweds !
I often say that I’m a sucker for emotion and wow was there plenty of that going around at this wedding !
We shared so many laughs and Lisa & I I really felt a part of your families, this to me is so important when it comes to photographing weddings.
If that connection isn’t there it becomes a job, and I’m lucky enough to say that I connect with all of my couples and can hardly call what I do ‘work’ ..
It’s such an amazing experience being able to share in such a beautiful day, two people joining as one ..
Anyway, enough of the mushy stuff !

Walking out of the Church as husband and wife with all our family and friends.
What did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography ?
Ben and his wife Lisa were the absolute best photographers we could have asked for.
Ben made us feel at ease with no stress. He was a true professional and we cannot wait to see the photos !!
