WHAT'S THE GO WITH BENEDICT SUTTON?
Benedict Sutton is not only a visual storyteller, the man has a way with words.
So, we’ll let him introduce himself…
As a youngster, I spent most of my time sneaking into my dad’s camera-filled man-cave and listening to his Opeth and Joe Satriani CDs. I’d be standing there silent, frozen like a popsical, letting the aggressive guitar solos’ melt all over me.
I grew up, deep down in the burbs of Sydney. I was a real sport-lover, so I spent most of my time hassling all 6 of my creative and oddball siblings to play backyard cricket or 3 a side footy.
A little later in life, I caught ye ol’ travel bug and spent 4 months backpacking around a landscape lavish Asia. My shoestring budget, Massaman Curry diet and a mate, Josh convinced me to pick up a camera and start shooting what I saw. The photo-maker felt good in my palms. We really connected.
While sworn off relationships, donuts and women in general, I stumbled on a care-free, confident as hell, blonde bombshell. She was fun and risky and independent. Being around her lit a flame inside me that I hadn’t felt before. You better believe, I made her my wife. We laughed at the same memes, it would have been rude not too.
Bre convinced me that my photography made her appreciate the world around her - as she watched me lose my mind over mountains and paying attention to the details in doorways. I dreamed up a time where my Photography Super-Power could capture that connection between people and emotion, as well as my gorgeous wife and coloured buildings. Here we are guys, now I’m (maybe) your wedding photographer!
These days we enjoy spending time with our charismatic and ridiculously cheeky two year old, building sand palaces, adventuring and constructing lego castles fit for Dumbledore. In complete transparency, I own too many cameras to count on all my fingers (and yours) and I edit my weddings deep in the depths of Opeth and Satriani. Im sure my dear old dad would smile ear to ear at the very thought of this.
"Ben made us feel so very comfortable through our engagement shoot. He became an integral part of our journey well beyond our wedding day. Our photos, and the man and his smile behind them, are now part of our lives more than I could have imagined. I cannot wait to catch up with him for coffee and give him a massive hug. My heart is touched when I see his photos of our day, I am within my memories and all the feelings of the day come flooding back."

“Benedict is an amazing photographer, who captured our wedding day and engagement brilliantly. Bianca and I will be hitting our one-year anniversary next month, and to this day people still mention how absolutely magical our photographs are. He knew what to do, and what to say, but most importantly, his style of framing and capturing moments is what makes us fall in love with that special day over and over.
We invested a lot of time in searching for a photographer, around Australia and internationally, and were stoked to finally find Benedict. We were very excited that he was available and we asked him if he could be our “lifetime photographer” haha, not joking”
