Jean-Luc Benazet Photography, About
I would like to help you understand my way of capturing wedding photography.

My blog has got many weddings for you to check out, as well as my website portfolio and they will hopefully give you an idea of my unique style. In those images, you will realise that I crave natural moments, big smiles and simple setups.

I’m all about telling a story of your wedding day through my eyes, storytelling photography is getting more and more popular these days because if done well, it will strip the day down to natural and candid, mostly emotion-filled images, full of smiles and tears.

Trust me with your wedding photography like many other couples have done in the past. You will love your resulting set of images. I am a friendly photographer and I am unobtrusive. My 20 years of experience mean that I know my camera inside out and I know what works.

For me, photography is about capturing a moment in time, even better if that moment is a spontaneous smile or an emotional reaction to someone else’s speech. Capturing people being themselves, in informal situations is what I am all about. I love capturing people having a good time and looking happy.


My approach to photography is completely natural and creative. I hate unnatural and awkward posing and forced smiles. Your wedding day is going to be one of the most important days of your life, but my job is to capture a relaxed couple who enjoys everything about their big day. I want you to look back at your pictures years down the line and be transported back to the moment you said yes! To the tears you shed, the laughs you had and all the emotions that went through you on the day.

I love photographing people, and especially couples on one of the biggest day of their lives. People who book me often comment on the fact that I am discreet & friendly, and get on well with the wedding party & the guests. Outside photography I love the cinema, fine wine, food & travelling.

If you look at my website today, you will see that I am passionate about what I do. Why don’t you contact me and explain your needs, in terms of wedding photography, and I am sure we will agree to meet up for coffee and a little chat… I work all over the UK and abroad for destination weddings.
