Remi Benson’s love for travelling sparked his desire for photography. Capturing the beautiful landscapes and nature made him realize that he had an eye for capturing beautiful images. This passion turned professional on the 1st of January 2013 when he invested in the right equipment in order to shoot his first paid wedding job in June 2013. Since then, Remi Benson Photography has grown from strength to strength, working with couples to capture their special day and create lasting memories for them.

The Part of My Job I Enjoy The Most

Being a part of each couples’ special day. From getting ready, to the stressful moments, to then seeing the joy and happiness as the day unfolds. No two weddings are ever the same, and being able to be part of my couples’ special day, and seeing them smile, makes my job extremely enjoyable and rewarding.

My Biggest Accomplishment To Date

Shooting a wedding at the Dorchester; having a couple fly me to Nigeria to cover their wedding; being flown to Paris for a pre-wedding shoot; need I say more!! No really, despite the opportunities this job creates, my accomplishment is simply the end product – being able to give my couples their photos and or photo album / canvas, and seeing their delighted faces; their feedback is actually my accomplishment, as it encourages me to do even more.

The Best Vendor You’ve Worked With… 

Too many to name, but it’s great to be able to meet so many vendors in this line of work, from caterers, to MC’s, to DJ’s and wedding coordinators who I then refer to my clients

In My Spare Time, I like to travel with my other half. Our aim is to see the world!
