JEAN-LUC BENAZET PHOTOGRAPHY
We combine photography and creativity to deliver outstanding images

I am an award-winning French wedding photographer based in Cambridge, UK since 1998. I am fluent both in French and in English. I will capture your wedding in the most unobtrusive manner, so as not to influence your big day too much. And keep the flow of events as natural as possible. I will capture images of people having a great time, this is what I do best!

We offer wedding photography all over France and the UK. We have captured many weddings in France over the years as well as the UK: Mainly in England, but also Wales and Scotland. We offer destination wedding photography all over Europe.

bride
photography

We excel at portrait photography and bridal photography on a wedding day is a great way to represent a bride on one of the happiest days in her life.

couple
photography

We love couple photography but on any given wedding day we like to keep the couple shots as natural as possible and we prefer to capture them throughout the day.

informal
photography

Informal photography is what we do best. Capturing people unaware, in the middle of a great chat or fits of laughter.

details

Details are very important on a wedding day. Will you remember your flowers, your table decorations, your wedding venue, after a few years? We are here for that.

wedding photography

I have been a wedding photographer in France and the UK for over 20 years. I come highly recommended. I’m fluent both in French and English.

I am a friendly and unobtrusive wedding photographer. I excel at people photography, and always prefer the natural backdrops and situations to the over-elaborated setups. In my spare time, I tend to travel to practise my street and landscape photography and the former really comes out in my wedding shots.

destination weddings

We have travelled as far as Tuscany and Naples in Italy,  Seville and Barcelona in Spain and Bavaria in Germany to capture weddings. We are happy to travel around Europe to record your big day. 

As part of my summer photography workshops in Italy and France, I am often on the lookout for outstanding sceneries and landscapes, when shooting weddings, this trait comes out in my composition skills. 

about my services
FAQ and general questions about my business

If this section does not answer a burning question you may have about my services, please contact me to ask me about it.

Let us know your wedding date, your wedding venue and the package your prefer, and we will let you know if we are available and how we can best you capture your big day.
If you cannot see a package you like, or if you need less coverage because your ceremony is late in the day, let us know which number of hours you are interested in and we will help you build a custom package.

We are mainly seeing ourselves as photojournalists, capturing the day as it happens, recording all the main events, while adding our creativity to it and 20+ years of experience. We are like a fly on the wall, watching over proceedings and photographing them, but with the artist touch added to it.

  • Cameras: Nikon D3, D750 and Df
  • Prime lenses: Nikon 50mm f1.4, 85mm f1.8
  • Zoom lenses: 24-70mm f2.8, 70-200mm f2.8
  • Flashes: Nikon SB-900 & SB-910
  • Triggers: Nikon SU-800 & Pocketwizards (4)

I have always used Nikon cameras. Starting with film cameras, until 2003 when I bought my very first digital camera. And I have not looked back. The ease of use and instant feedback of digital cameras really makes them the only tool worth using.

As a conservative guidance, we would say we capture 50 images per hour, but it is often twice that amount.

Yes, I do. And I am insured up to £2 million for public liability insurance.

For weddings in France and Italy, generally between £200 and £500. That said if I find a really cheap flight and I can stay in a cheap B&B, I am sure we would be able to get that figure in the lower end of the spectrum. Further afield in Europe, it would definitely be towards £400-£500.

We rarely shoot outside of Europe, but if there was a request for that, at least £1,000 extra in travel fees would need to be added.
