Testimonials, what other people are saying about Ben!
When it comes to booking your Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer or any wedding supplier for that matter it pays to do your homework and testimonials form past clients are so valuable. I say talk to your friends who have recently been married, ask them who they used on their wedding day and who they recommend. Its a much more confident step in booking a wedding supplier with testimonials from the people you know and love who tell you that supplier is wonderful and to go ahead and book them before someone else does!
Another great way to source amazing suppliers who care about your day is through other suppliers you have already booked. Many suppliers frequently work together and really understand whats important to accomplish to make your day amazing.
On a personal note working as a Sunshine Coast Wedding Photographer is my passion, not only do I get to photograph wonderful people and travel internationally doing so, but I’ve also won a few international awards for In Camera Artistry in the process and I just love doing what I do.
For you this means you’ll have a photographer there right beside you on the biggest day of your life who genuinely cares about you, your day and providing you with the best wedding photography experience possible, in fact I want to win Wedding Album of the Year with your wedding. That means, every photo I take has to be beautiful, I need to amplify your strengths and hide any weaknesses, I need to be the right personality to compliment you both as couple to get the best possible result where you love how you look in every image.
“Amazing, creative and emotive wedding photography in 99% personality and 1% clicking the shutter”
Below is just some of the many thank you’s I receive each month, so please feel free to look through them and see what other couples think of my personality and the amazing experience I was able to give them.
SUE ELLEN DUBY
Dear Ben, I wanted to write a quick thank you for your kindness and humour shown towards us at Jo and Christopher’s wedding. Your professionalism was greatly appreciated as was your talent for being inconspicuous. Everyone has commented on how good it was not to have to wait hours while the bride and groom had photos taken. Thank you for capturing the essence of our beautiful children and their dream of what they wanted their wedding day to be. Sue Ellen
HAYLEY & ERIC
When looking for a photographer we had no idea where to start, we got in contact with Ben after being referred on from our wedding venue owners. Ben was very accommodating to our wants for the day and our budget. When it came to the wedding day Ben went above and beyond to make us all feel comfortable, relaxed and all gave us a great laugh. Our friends and family were commenting on how professional and friendly he was. When we came back from our honeymoon Ben notified us our photo’s were ready, and wow is all I can say. I cannot stop looking at the images from the day. Ben truly has an amazing talent and an eye for detail. We cannot thank Ben enough for the memories he has given us, and any friends getting married in the future we will be recommending Ben.
GREG & VAL
So when my amazing girlfriend came over recently we had some couple photos done with the Brilliant photographer Ben from Ben Connolly on the Sunshine Coast. Valerie didn’t think she would like the photos as she doesn’t like many, however she was hugely mistaken & she loves every photo taken. Thank you Ben for capturing our love for each other so well.
SHARON & ANDREW
Andrew and I received our photos and our little bag of goodies from you the other week and we cannot thank you enough!! We have such beautiful memories from that day and your photos will remind us of this forever. Thank you for everything you did for us on the day too, you made us feel completely relaxed. If you are looking for a great photographer, with a unique style and who absolutely loves what he does, then Ben is your man! Thank you again!

DANIELLE & AARON
Dear Ben you are a crazy, enthusiastic, amazingly creative, bulldog loving photographer. How could we not hire you for our wedding. As soon as we saw your photos we knew we had to have you. You have blown us away with what you create never in our wildest dreams could we have envisioned that our wedding photos would look as amazing as they do. Thank you for your talent, patience and of course the chicken noises. Our day would not have been as special or unique as it was without your presence. Thank you Danielle and Aaron
Ben my darling you are quite simply…amazing!! You captured the love, the fun, the silly & the serious moments of my daughter’s wedding with grace, professionalism and a huge smile. You managed to make everyone feel relaxed and enjoy themselves whilst taking photos and you were the consummate professional. Thank you Ben, you have made this “Mumsie” a very happy woman 🙂
BROOKE & ALAN
Dear Ben, I have been trying to write this thank you for months now, aside from time escaping me I haven’t been able to find the words that would express our appreciation for you.
You have an incredible personality that shines in what can be a difficult environment (weddings) with high pressures, stressed brides and grooms and an array of guests which are strangers to you. Our guests are still months later raving about the best photographer that have met.
Alan and I have looked over our photos dozens of times, and remember just how wonderful our day was all thanks to you. We had such an amazing time FREESTYLIN’ with you. You captured everything and so much more then we could have ever hoped for from our photos.
You made the day fun and light and got everyone involved, and you made it so easy to be around the camera. You have shown us you have a unique and creative flair that allows you to see the most magical moments people have to offer you.
Alan and I stumbled across a video blog of yours recently ‘moments in time’, and I was so touched by your strength and I admire so much the drive to find your passions again and be truly successful.
You are an unbelievable photographer and person, and coming away from our wedding so many of our family and friends hope they get the chance to have you on their special days and can’t think of anyone else who would be more perfect for the occasion.
I apologise for it taking me so long to return this to you. I can only hope that this expresses just how grateful we are for your work. We love all our photos and they are so treasured.
We wish you all the best in your extremely bright future and hope we get the opportunity to have you take the photos for other important moments in our life because we can think of no one who would come close you and you calibre.
With sincere thanks, Alan & Brooke Ehrlich
ALODI & RODNEY
Wow, wow and WOW. You have an amazing talent! Our photos are even more beautiful than we could ever have imagined, thank you so much for capturing our day-the laughs, the tears and everything in between, I don’t think I can put into words how grateful we are and how much we will cherish our photos.
ALICE & JAMES
We just got our photos and Ben they are amazing, you are truly the most creative, inspired and talented individual we have ever spent time with. Its an honour to call you our friend and flying you to NSW was the best decision we have ever made, we can’t wait to work with you again.
WENDY & LUKAS
Ben is absolutely amazing !!! He totally made our day and we couldn’t imagine our special day without him. Ben exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond to capture our whole day. I could keep on writing and raving on about how fantastic ben is but if your considering hiring a photographer once you meet Ben he will capture your imagination.
Ben thank you very much.

MICHELLE & ANDREW
Everything I could have hoped for and more… These are the words I said to Ben after seeing a slide show of our wedding photos for the first time, on a lazy Saturday while sipping bubbly on Ben’s big studio couch. Choosing a photographer for our wedding was the MOST important decision above any others on the wedding planning list for us. Having a creative background ourselves, we realised that after the special day has gone, you walk away with memories… and photographs. That is why it was so important to us to find the right person to capture our day. Ben was able to somehow be in two places at once to capture the most special and important moments of the day with precision and creativity. Then he presented them beautifully from cover to cover as a complete book that tells the story of our day. Our family and guests were as elated as we were when they saw the quality of the photos, and how they captured and communicate the mood of the day. We had countless comments from our guests saying how professional he was, how helpful and fun in his interaction with everyone throughout the day, and one person thought we had booked a friend as our wedding photographer because of the rapport we all had together. I absolutely know that we made the right decision choosing Ben as our wedding photographer, because he gave us everything we could have hoped for, and more. We have no hesitation in fully recommending Ben, if you book him you’re sure to be as happy as we are to have a fantastic storybook of your special day.
MARK & MAILES
Dear Ben thank you for capturing the beauty of our wedding day come rain or shine. We appreciate The hard work and talent you put in and the proof can be seen in our amazing photos.
