I am Laura Benson, a photographer and very much a people person, so in Wedding Photography I have found an ideal job for me. With my husband, I run Laura and Benny Photography. We photograph primarily in Cork, Ireland but also all over Munster and Leinster. Ireland has so many beautiful places that I would have never seen if it was not for Wedding Photography. I am so happy that I know so many more places and people! The people! I love meeting, being around, helping and interacting with people on such a wonderful day. Wedding Photography is very much about people, your truly have to want to be there, allow people be. To get natural photographic moments, be brave enough to let them have their moment and capture it.
Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?
Cork, Ireland is our primary location, covering the Munster region. Our Dublin, Ireland location allows us to cover Leinster. Within those regions we do not have travel fees.
How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?
2022 is our 7th year focused on Weddings. With over 350 photographed and with more than 100 booked in already for 2023/24. We will hit our 400th in April 2023 and our 500th in July 2024.
Describe your "style" of wedding photography.
Genuinely candid, we are all about you having your day rather than us directing your wedding day. Natural edits and true colour.
What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?
Morning Preparations to First Dance (and a couple party songs). Digital Package from €2400.
Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?
Video calls are the big go to currently.
Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?
You have to see it to believe it, watch our daily Stories and you’ll get to know us. We don’t ham it up nor do we change on your wedding day. Personality is crucial for someone who will be with you for 10+ hours through your wedding day
