Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIOS ARE OPEN - Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

Alex Benyon Wedding Photography

I’m Alex and I’m a multi-award-winning photographer, husband to an amazing wife, and father to a beautiful daughter. Currently living in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside, I photograph weddings all over the UK and anywhere in the world (still waiting for that Caribbean destination wedding though).

I’ve been doing this for several years now but I still feel incredibly fortunate that I get to take photographs full time for a living, and I absolutely love shooting documentary wedding & family photography. This isn’t a job to me, it’s a passion!

My style of wedding photography is laid back, relaxed, and influenced by my love of street photography. Some might say I shoot in a documentary or photojournalism style, others might call it natural observational photography. Personally, I like to think of it as stress-free wedding photography. But whatever you want to call it, for me it’s all about telling your amazing wedding story through photography. By blending in with the guests (well, as much as a 6ft 6″ bearded tree can) and being as ‘hands-off’ and unobtrusive as possible, my goal is to capture those real and genuine moments. All the laughter, love, joy, and fun shared by you and your guests throughout the day.

I am also privileged to work with Sony UK as one of their Sony Alpha Creators. This includes delivering talks and presentations for Sony at photographic events and conventions all over the UK about my approach to documentary wedding photography using the Alpha system.

As well as giving talks for Sony UK I also enjoy teaching and sharing my photographic approach and techniques at events and photography conventions around the UK and I have spoken several times at the annual The Photography Show at the NEC in Birmingham.
