The word ‘magical’ doesn’t even begin to capture what Ben achieved in creating our dream wedding photographs. The partnership, the guidance, the organisation and most of all the beautiful images, were perfect in every way.From the beginning we knew that having our wedding within The House of Commons would be problematic for some of our suppliers due to the venue’s strict safety and security procedures, but not for Ben, who worked with The HOC event’s team to ensure that the organisation and logistics for the day were seamless and invisible.When it came to planning our day, Ben started by first asking questions and listening to what we were looking for, what mood and atmosphere we required. Ben then offered suggestions through linking up our ideas combined with his expertise. This may sound easy, but trust us, this is where Ben’s knowledge of photography and creative design come together and the magic is made.Throughout the whole process Ben has been nothing short of AMAZING, Ben so clearly loves his job and through this, is able to exemplify ‘Customer Service’ at its very best and thus ensures that your perfect wedding images are captured. Now, some five months after our wedding day, people are still talking about our spectacular wedding photographs. If you require a wedding photographer and looking for PERFECTION, we would highly recommend Ben Joseph Photography. Thank you BenChristopher and Damian More...

Ben was our wedding photographer for the day at the Queen's House and he captured so brilliant pictures and memorable moments from the day that we'll never forget. In particular, the candid shots he took were superb and many of our guests have commented on much they loved those shots. Ben's a true professional and I would not hesitate to work with him again.

Ben was our wedding photographer in London and did a great job of capturing the day - our guests having a good time in addition to some special couple and venue photos. His 'documentary' style pictures are just what we wanted and I'm sure we'll enjoy them for years to come! More...

Ben was the photographer for our wedding in September 2017, and we couldn't have been happier with the results! Our ceremony took place at St Mary's Church in Blackheath, with the reception at the Trafalgar Tavern in Greenwich. Ben captured the spirit and the fun of the day and our guests beautifully. Ben ensured that we weren't away from our guests for too long, but that we stepped away at just the right moments to capture the best pictures. Ben is professional and personable, and proved a real hit with our guests! We would highly recommend Ben! More...

Our wedding took place at the Ranger's House in Blackheath. We wanted a relaxed approach to our wedding photography without too many staid group shots or stiff portraits. Ben came recommended to us by an established Greenwich based photographer. We were happy with Ben's work - he captured the spirit of the day, with a selection of spontaneous shots and informal portraits. We are happy to recommend Ben as a creative and professional photographer. Jonathan Atkins. More...

Ben was able to capture the memories of our big day beautifully. Having Ben as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process. He has given us a wide range of photographs which we are extremely happy with. The weather was pretty bad on our wedding day, but you definitely can't tell from the photographs. We highly recommend Ben who was reliable and professional all throughout. Thank you Ben Mark and Denise More...

We were over the moon with the photos that Ben took of our wedding day and celebration party. He was very patient with us (as we are not the most relaxed in front of a camera!) and really captured the vibe of the weekend. I would thoroughly recommend him. More...

We had our wedding ceremony at Hill Garden & Pergola, and the reception at Horniman Museum and Gardens; Ben covered both. The whole process of working with Ben from planning to the day itself was really smooth and pleasant. He was very efficient and caught some great moments of us and the wedding guests. We couldn't have wished for a better wedding photographer. More...

I asked Ben to take a family portrait for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. The portrait included my 10 year old nephew, who found the whole experience a bit of a giggle and my sister's dog, who was the best behaved! Ben was patient and very professional. He provided us with some lovely photos, which my parents loved. I would recommend Ben for future portrait photography. More...

We had attended a wedding for which Ben had been the photographer.and had both been impressed by the photographs (he also came strongly endorsed by the bride and groom). From the outset of the process, Ben put us both at ease--no small feat given that neither of us are especially fond of having our photo taken! Before the wedding, we found him communicative and readily available to discuss plans (given we are based in the U.S. this was especially appreciated). On the day, he was fantastic--he made quite an impression with our families, as getting them organized is no small challenge! All the posed and candid photos were fantastic and he perfectly captured the day. We highly recommend Ben, we are very happy we chose to work with him. More...

My fiancé and I recently took part in an engagement photo shoot with Ben. We were both quite nervous at the time but Ben quickly put at ease with his experience and knowledge of how to take the best shot. All of the photos came out beautifully. We are getting married in Scotland but otherwise we wouldn't hesitate to use Ben as our wedding photographer. More...

Our function ran for four hours in The Grand Connaught Rooms, near Covent Garden. It involved over 400 elderly people and a senior member of the Royal Family as the Guest of Honour.
Ben Joseph provided comprehensive photographic coverage of the whole event, portraying both individuals and groups in different settings, as well as formal speakers, throughout the programme.
His pictures captured people’s emotions and their interaction in vivid form and constitute a memorable record of a special day.
Ben himself was most helpful and accommodating when discussing the detailed arrangements for the occasion.

Thank you Ben, with your pictures you been able to capture the magic we felt the day of our wedding. We cannot stop looking at them! Through your shots we live again the feelings and the atmosphere of the ceremony and the party. Each portrait shows the feelings and the thoughts of the people, as the images of places and objects tell the story behind them! We really enjoyed the shooting, we felt completely at ease with you like we knew you for ages. Nevertheless we have appreciated your professionalism and attention to details as like as the speed in replying to all our questions via e-mail. This made us feel secure we made the right choice from day one and the result of your job has been the proof.
Thanks again!

Ben delivered beautiful photos that captured our event in the London area. We made arrangements long distance and he was very easy to work with and flexible with pricing to fit our budget. He showed up to the event, not only on time but early to scout the location and pick spots that made for great composition in our photos. He was very professional at the event. And the photos turned out lovely. We are very happy with his work. Highly recommend! More...

We contacted Ben to take photos at one of our CPDs. It wasn't an easy job. We needed to get specific photos in natural environment (not staged).
Not only did Ben was happy to accept the job, he also worked precisely to our requirements and delivered over 100 great quality photos.
Ben is a pleasure to work with and we are certainly looking forward to work with him again.

We are absolutely ecstatic about our pre-wedding photos and have had so many compliments from others too. Ben seemed to understand pretty much straight away our style/personalities and managed to encapsulate that beautifully in his work. Ben has this amazing talent of capturing the story in a photo and balancing the whole picture no matter how busy or serene the background. We are very much looking forward to having Ben take the photos of our big day and are already thinking of asking Ben to photo us each time we are in London at other life milestones!

From now on, if anyone asked me to recommend a photographer, without hesitation I would recommend Ben Joseph.

Ben was amazing. From the moment we turned up at his studio dripping wet, (London rain catches us all out) to the day of our wedding.
Ben knew exactly the type of photos we wanted, very journalistic. He caught the guests and us in very natural poses and how we are - as us.
We didnt want big group 'staged' Wedding shots. Ben acknowledged that and took a few close family shots and did it with humour and fun - despite the slight rain.
Would reccommend to anyone and everyone. The galleries when you see them... worth ever penny.

Ben took care of the photography of our wedding at the end of July this year. He is very professional and nice. We've had to work with someone who is very flexible as our wedding was on a boat and our timing had to be fixed throughout the day - he was very helpful in this regard. Also his pricing is very fair and flexible enough to fit with your budget. The photos he took are spectacular and we love them. I totally recommend him. More...

We have just received our wedding photos from Ben Joseph. We couldn't be more impressed. He was engaging and efficient in organising multiple group shots, and has captured so many brilliant moments of people enjoying themselves throughout the night (with impressive stealthiness). He had been working non-stop for 10 hours on the day, yet still offered to stay for extra time to get late shots of the dancing. A Pleasure to deal with throughout the day and since. The quality of the shots are exceptional and he comes highly recommended. More...

Professional and personal is how we would describe Ben! At our initial meeting with him, we talked through the different styles of photos. We wanted a few of the traditional staged family photos, outside of that we were looking for something a little more natural. Ben was able to show us some great examples of other shoots that he had done previously, so we could agree exactly style we were looking for.

As the wedding date approached, Ben was great at keeping in touch to make sure that we were completely happy with what we wanted and that we had thought about who we wanted our traditional pictures with, so he could capture everyone.

On the day, Ben was fab - in the nicest possible way, the greatest thing about Ben is that you didn't notice that he was there, which is what you want in a great photographer!!! He captured our day perfectly - our photos give a real feel of the atmosphere and joy of the day. We are delighted with our pictures, great memories of a great day!

We considered a number of reportage style photographers for our wedding in July 2015 and decided we really liked Ben's images, his composition and attention to detail.

We were really impressed with the images from our wedding, and feel they capture the real essence of the day and those moments where people were at their most natural.

We were particularly pleased with the shots of us as a couple throughout the day, especially as Ben was able to use his knowledge of the venue and surrounding area to ensure we didn't end up with those "awkward, staged" wedding pictures. We also liked how Ben managed to combine some really lovely images of us juxtaposed against the hustle and bustle of the city.

Overall we're delighted with the result and all of the photos! Thanks Ben!

Ben was a perfect photography. Unobtrusive, friendly and had a great way of shepherding people and ebing firm without anyone finding it annoying.

Reportage phtoography was obviously fantastic but so was the small details. He even stayed longer than we'd agreed! Simply put, you should book him. More...

One thing we were a little naive before the wedding<span id="moreReview523912" class="hide"> was the importance of the photographer, and for this reason we wouldn’t just write a good review to be nice, but Ben generally deserves the praise he gets and with absolutely no hesitation we would recommend skills.</span> More...

We were thrilled with the photos when we returned from honeymoon - just looking back at them reminds us of a brilliant day.

Ben Joseph photographed our London based wedding in early May this year. We were keen to have photos that picked up our friends and family in their natural demeanor and to have visual images that picked up on the finer details of the day, that were personal to us. We were happy with the images we received- a lovely collection that we will be able to look back on in the years to come to remind us of our big day! We met Ben before hand and felt re-assured by his experience of wedding photography and the planning required to provide his services alongside the plans we had made for the day. Ben was quick and friendly in responding to emails, and was flexible to meet out budget needs. More...

My (now) husband and I found Ben during what felt like the world's most interminable Google search, where we saw wedding photography page after wedding photography page that all essentially looked the same. There was something about the nature of Ben's work, however, that felt different to us - and we were right. We felt an instant rapport with Ben, and he put us immediately at our ease by<span id="moreReview490786" class="hide"> explaining what he could do for us, how much it would cost, what we would see at the end, and, most importantly to us, how he would fit in in our big day. He was as good as his word - he delivered stunning photographs that perfectly captured the casual and joyful vibe of our day, he was present without being intrusive, and I'd have a beer with him any day of the week. There is no higher praise from an Australian!</span> More...

Many of the pictures were unique, truly reflective of Ben's knowledge of his art and creativity. <br />Not too much focus was on traditional wedding photography, which was exactly what we asked for. <br /> The presentation of the album was lovely and we<span id="moreReview476769" class="hide"> regularly look at it. <br /><br />The only reason I haven't given 5 stars for value for money is that all wedding photography is expensive!</span> More...

Ben covered our civil ceremony in Chelsea Town Hall, London, in October 2013. <br /><br />He acted as a true professional throughout the event and delivered the quality of work we expected from his credentials: a sensible and different approach to portraits, far from the usual posing stance. An ability to grasp the best of each instant, to take advantage of the urban setting and deviate from second-rate<span id="moreReview472519" class="hide"> shots. Also, he took time beforehand to meet and discuss with us, so he could understand our needs and expectations. Thus, there was little doubt that everything would go according to plan upon the D-day!<br /><br />We can praise his professionalism, his responsiveness, his discretion and, last but not least, his kindness with us and our guests. <br /><br />We consider him to be meticulous, perceptive and diligent professional. It was our great pleasure to have him on board for this very special event. <br /><br />Y and F.</span> More...

Ben originally took pictures of my daughter on her Communion day in June 2010. We chose to create formal portraits in selected locations interior and exterior rather than informal ones.

He was<span id="moreReview470628" class="hide"> confident and knowledgeable about portraiture. He was also very nice.

My wife and I commissioned Ben to photograph our wedding at Bluebird, King's Road in June this year. We were incredibly impressed with the results which not only captured those special moments on our big day, but also provided an outstanding collection of portraiture of our close friends and family. <br /><br />We suffered the usual pre-wedding anxiety that accompanies appointing a photographer, but<span id="moreReview457577" class="hide"> after our initial meeting with Ben, this anxiety was swiftly replaced with genuine excitement. We bonded with him almost instantly, as well as being an extremely talented creative with an acute attention to detail, he is also a charming and genuine individual. He spent time getting to know us to ensure he got the style just right on the day, something that we found particularly reassuring. We never at any point subsequently had any doubts about his ability to deliver and this confidence allowed us to spend our time enjoying the day. <br /><br />Ben shot in a reportage style during our reception, always in the background and never obtrusive, capturing the event in a truly emotive body of work. The results speak for themselves. We can't recommend him highly enough.</span> More...

Ben’s photography is vivid and beautiful. His work is utterly distinct and stands out from both the formulaic dross of the advertising industry and even the competent, multi-coloured compositions of his contemporaries. His work can be both melancholic, pulling the viewer into the distant and reflective eyes of his subject and joyous, when he captures a moment of delight and spontaneity. Ben is also a consummate professional. I commissioned him to photograph two major events at the University of London. One of these was a rather static workshop, but Ben managed to wrestle from it real humour and humanity. Some of the images he produced have been used across the university. The second was an international symposium, Ben was able to photograph the energy of the event, the audience and the panel speakers, but also take entirely unique and moving portraits. These were immediately lauded by those at the symposium and presented online. Quite apart from the high-level coverage he provided of the event, several of the images are stand-alone œuvres d'art. Ben Joseph is a rare find and though this may sound like a cliché, too often used in endorsements of this type, in my professional life I have never found his match.Leo Zeilig More...

I believe he transmits all that enthusiasm and interest in photography to his images, and that is something you could immediately see when you look at his pictures.</span> More...

Ben was great! A very accomplished photographer. He handled my shoot very professionally. I now have images for my marketing that will help my business grow. It is very worthwhile to invest in oneself like this to get the returns. The website is now finished off and looks fantastic - thanks to Ben Joseph Photography. More...

Ben is an exceptional talent. He has an eye for capturing the moment, giving couples a unique photograph, rather than an average picture. He is friendly, helpful and conscientious and makes people feel at ease. I would highly recommend Ben - if you are looking for beautiful, timeless photographs. More...

rainbow788 937mb.<br /><br />I have worked with Ben Joseph in two capacities, as an employer and as a student. In both cases Ben was a true professional, he is dedicated to the work that he does, and as a photographer has a rare quality - a willingness to share his photography 'secrets'. Under his instruction you will use modern techniques to achieve both classical and modern styles of lighting. More...

Ben is a great photographer.. He took headshots of me for representation in Spotlight. He is creative and pays attention to details. He does not give up until everything is right. He is patient and pleasant to be with and makes you feel calm. More...

Ben photographed our wedding this year and we were so pleased with the results. The photographs were all beautiful and really captured the feel of the day. Ben was such a pleasure to have around and he managed to capture all the special moments of the day without us even noticing that he was there! We would thoroughly recommend Ben to anybody looking for a wedding photographer. More...

The photographic image captures the vulnerability, not just of the lead character Eddie, but of the other children in the story who find themselves bounced around between the adults in their world like balls in a pinball machine. <br /><br />Young Eddie the Kid is obsessed with the stunt motorcyclist of the same name and the image cleverly uses the bike to symbolise Eddie's break for freedom, his<span id="moreReview376916" class="hide"> courting of danger and his ultimate search for safety. <br /><br />The way the adult's back is turned away but her head is not conjures up how many adults in Eddie's life have an complex and ambiguous interaction with him. Finally the lighting and colour portray Eddie's world with the same raw, harsh honesty that the novelist Leo Zeilig uses. <br /><br />An excellent photograph for the cover of this important new novel.</span> More...

Ben worked professionally from the moment that we met him. He listened to our ideas and already knew our venue so I immediately felt very confident that we were going to be happy with the results. On the day itself Ben worked tirelessly and patiently on what was a very hot day and during the ceremony I wasn't even aware that he was there! We really felt that Ben went the extra mile to cover<span id="moreReview373382" class="hide"> everything from the day. The first thing that made us want to have Ben as our wedding photographer were the beautiful pictures on his website, they seemed so incredibly natural and unpretentious showing happy, funny and intimate moments which was exactly what we wanted for our wedding pictures. We weren't disappointed, our pictures were fantastic and capture our day perfectly, every time we look at them it brings back all the happy memories of that amazing day.</span> More...

We booked Ben to photograph our wedding day after being recommended his services by a friend. Our contact with Ben was fantastic and began weeks before our wedding, with a meeting to discuss what style photographs we would like, followed by a site visit to familiarise Ben with the locations and photo opportunities. Ben was able to capture a snapshot of the day and each moment he caught evokes<span id="moreReview372503" class="hide"> many a memory. His presence was unobtrusive and he was very patient with our many family and friends, when having a few 'must have' group shots. We had the most amazing day and Ben produced many beautiful timeless shots we adore.</span> More...

Ben has photographed two events for the Institute of Commonwealth Studies: A large conference in memory of Ruth First, the anti-Apartheid activist, in June, and a smaller screening of a documentary about Ruth First in August. At both of these events he was extremely professional and unobtrusive, and took great photographs. He returned the images to us very quickly and without fuss. The images<span id="moreReview370959" class="hide"> can be found at http://www. Ruthfirstpapers. Org. Uk/Images. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben to any similar organisation looking to have fantastic images to remember an event. Matt.</span> More...

I've also been fortunate to have had a few photography lessons since with Ben, which have been a great help and lots of fun. I would happily recommend Ben. More...

Ben was superb in our meetings before the wedding and excellent on the day itself. The photographs look sensational and we received many comments to that effect. His prices were very competitive and in all we were extremely satisfied and would recommend Ben to anyone interested in having beautiful, stylish photographs taken of their event. More...

I came across Ben at a colleagues event during Social Media Week (Social Anatomy of a Live Event by DigitalBinx held at Club Workspace Leathermarket).<br /><br />He was commissioned as the official photographer. Put simply, I hardly noticed his presence during the event and then the next day saw the results of his work on an official post event mail out. <br /><br />I was completely impressed with his shots and<span id="moreReview367388" class="hide"> the efficient turn around. He captured virtually everyone at the event in a portrait shot and some fantastic group shots during the event that encapsulated the feel of the evening. <br /><br />So impressed that I use the picture he took of me on all of my social profiles as standard. <br /><br />If you have an event of any kind, look up Ben Joseph, his professionalism and unobtrusive approach work wonderfully well. I will be recommending him from now on.</span> More...

Ben did a wonderful job of photographing our wedding. He was very professional, and had a calm and relaxed manner, which was definitely something I needed on the day!! The images he captured were fantastic. My favourites are those he took in the evening when the party was in full swing, he really managed to capture the mood. More...

Ben photographed our wedding and we were really delighted with the results. He managed to get wonderful group photos of family and friends, and then caught many great spontaneous moments throughout the day. I definitely agree with what others have said about his reportage work being exceptional. He came recommended to us, and I would happily recommend him to others. More...

Ben’s photography is vivid and beautiful. His work is utterly distinct and stands out from both the formulaic dross of the advertising industry and even the competent, multi-coloured compositions of his contemporaries. His work can be both melancholic, pulling the viewer into the distant and reflective eyes of his subject and joyous, when he captures a moment of delight and spontaneity. <br /><br />Ben<span id="moreReview347599" class="hide"> is also a consummate professional. I commissioned him to photograph two major events at the University of London. One of these was a rather static workshop, but Ben managed to wrestle from it real humour and humanity. Some of the images he produced have been used across the university. The second was an international symposium, Ben was able to photograph the energy of the event, the audience and the panel speakers, but also take entirely unique and moving portraits. These were immediately lauded by those at the symposium and presented online. Quite apart from the high-level coverage he provided of the event, several of the images are stand-alone œuvres d'art. <br /><br />Ben Joseph is a rare find and though this may sound like a cliché, too often used in endorsements of this type, in my professional life I have never found his match.</span> More...

Ben photographed our wedding in June 2008 and we could not have been happier with the results. He was professional throughout the whole process, and on the day was calm and friendly with everyone. We had many compliments from our guests and the photographs themselves were amazing and exceeded our expectations. His skill and expertise meant that we have a beautiful representation of our wedding<span id="moreReview346209" class="hide"> that we truly do treasure.</span> More...

We were delighted we used Ben for our wedding photos. We were hardly aware of his presence but captured our wedding extremely well. The black and white photos, in particular, caught the warmth and intimacy of our wedding day as well as the diverse personality of our guests. The photos are not only a wonderful reflection of a special day; they are also treasured images of friends and family who<span id="moreReview345178" class="hide"> are no longer with us!</span> More...

Ben Joseph voluntarily photographed deaf children involved in the making of the short film ‘That’s not all of me” commissioned by the Life and Deaf Association and premiered at London’s Southbank Centre. Ben’s sensitive and evocative photography was used in programmes, on the website and in promotional exhibitions. Ben maintained a quiet profile throughout the film shoot but his delicate<span id="moreReview344828" class="hide"> handling of light and easy manner with the young subjects resulted in fragile, reflective portraits and an affecting record of the day’s events. <br /><br />Jane Thomas, Director Life and Deaf Association.</span> More...

Ben took beautiful photographs of our wedding. He took the time to sit down with us beforehand and discuss the type of photographs we would like.

I have no hesitation in recommending his services to others. More...

It is extremely rare to find someone who is not only talented in what they do, but also happens to be a genuinely nice person. Ben is that someone and we were lucky enough to have him shoot at our wedding. From our intial meeting, we were impressed not only by his keen eye, but by his gentle demeanour and personable nature. On the day, Ben managed to capture so many precious moments, whilst<span id="moreReview344892" class="hide"> remaining professional, calm and discreet, and we have a beautiful momento of carefully composed and candid shots that we shall treasure forever. For us, having the right photographer to record such a momentous day in our lives was as important as the venue itself.... We could not think of entrusting this responsibility to anyone else.</span> More...

I am writing this to highly recommend Ben Joseph who recently took professional photos of me for my linked in profile and other marketing media. <br /><br />I am not a natural in front of a camera and felt quite daunted to start with. <br />Ben is an amazingly patient and calm person and by the time we had finished I almost felt comfortable being photographed. <br />In fact I can honestly say that I really<span id="moreReview344985" class="hide"> enjoyed the experience of being a model for a while which is something I never thought I would say. <br /><br />I am very happy with the result and suggest that any person who wants to portray a professional image on-line or in print should snap up Ben’s services.</span> More...

Ben took the photographs at our wedding last year and did a fantastic job. We couldn't be more pleased with the images he captured - every time I look at them, they make me smile.

After seeing examples of Ben's amazing work we knew we had to secure him as our wedding photographer. The photo's were even better than we hoped - they were simply stunning and truly captured the essence of our day. We loved having a mix of reportage vs choreographed and B&W vs colour pictures (the Hasselblad camera produced much better pictures than those taken digitally). Ben was extremely<span id="moreReview344744" class="hide"> professional, organised, well presented and was able to communicate/ direct the guests well. He is an outstanding photographer and his work has given us, our family and friends wonderful, unforgettable memories.</span> More...
