get to know us

We photograph once in a lifetime weddings for happy couples.

Hi there bride-to-be!
We are Ben and Joy Clifford, a husband and wife photography team. We are a couple who fell in love over 19 years ago in a small town. After dating for a very long time - 4 weeks to be exact - Ben knew she was the one and asked her to marry him.
19 years of marriage later, we’re still best friends! When we are not photographing weddings, we are usually chasing around our amazing daughter, who has two different color eyes! We also love being outside soaking up the Arizona sun. 
Hiking, camping, fishing, and exploring new unique locations are all musts!

our love notes

LAUREN AND CHASE

Wow, I just can't come up with enough superlatives to describe how happy and impressed we are with the work of Ben and his team. He chronicled my daughter and new son-in-law's special day perfectly by capturing the bridal party and guests in a timeline of the day in pictures. The photographs of the bride, bride and groom and the backdrops of the wedding (tables, flowers, cake etc)and Desert Botanical Garden are magazine quality. In addition, no family portrait was over looked. The candid shots were great as well. We definitely made the right choice!

I could not have imagined a more perfect photography experience for our wedding. Ben and his wife make a perfect team, and made everyone feel comfortable. He also helped keep me calm when I arrived from hair and make up to find all of my bridesmaids very far from being ready to head to the church. They worked with us as my husband and I hiked in our wedding clothes for photos, and made the Arizona desert look gorgeous. Ben has little tricks to capture genuine moments of laughter and affection. Most of all, he captures the love, excitement, and emotion of each moment of the day. They exceeded every expectation I had about the potential of mine and my husband's photos.

Could not be more grateful to have had Ben photograph our big day!!!! Our photos are an absolute dream. He captured so many details that were important to us and that we will forever cherish. We will definitely be using him again in the future :)

Benjamin and his co shooter Joy were amazing! We love our wedding photos and they made not only my husband and I feel comfortable but each of our bridesmaids, groomsmen, and family! These pictures captured our special days perfectly and we couldn't imagine anyone else to capture that special day then Ben! His photo deliveries are simple and easy to use and allows you to share your photos with your loved ones who may live far away. Thank you Ben for everything! Michael and I couldn't be more happier with the finished product!

Ben and Joy are amazing to work with. They were fantastic from the initial phone call to the day of. Ben gave great guidance on everything from the wedding timeline, to the first look, and made the day as calm as can be. They kept us smiling and laughing throughout the portrait session! The photos were amazing as well! I loved the light and airy style they have, and the way they captured the emotion of the day without everything being really posed. Thanks to the team for capturing our special day!

Nicole and Alex

Benjamin and his team were great! We are from out of town so we were very particular with choosing our photographer. I did a lot of research and came across Benjamin Clifford Photography online. We set up a video chat to review exactly what we wanted and what he provided. After looking at the photos from our engagement secession we couldn’t wait to see the actual wedding photos, we knew they would turn out just as amazing. Benjamin and his team were very professional and fun during the engagement session and on our wedding day. Months after our wedding I still find myself looking at our wedding photos and am so in love with them!

All I could ask for and more in a photographer! Made the day calm and smooth going above and beyond in his patience and enjoying the fun and silliness of our wedding party (especially with the toddlers incorporated). Throughout the whole process Ben and Joy offered to helped in every way- the best investment for you wedding day!

Bethany and Jesse

Working with Benjamin Clifford Photography for our wedding photos was an extremely positive experience, my husband and I were blown away. We were originally drawn to the artist quality of their work, but soon after talking with them for first time we realized they really cared about helping make our day special and getting us exactly what we wanted. We had a destination wedding and didn't meet Benjamin and Joy in person until the day of our wedding. Their warm, fun and professional presence put us at ease immediately, and as the day progressed, through all the laughing, stress, and excitement, they both ended up feeling more like great friends instead of the photographers that we just met.

The Tonto National Forest, just a few hours northeast of Phoenix, is a favorite go-to location for engagement portraits, and up until recently, […]

It’s surrounded by ponderosa pines and the rust colors characteristic of Northern Arizona, the perfect setting for a couple that wanted a romantic yet casual look for their Mogollon Rim engagement session. So we headed 30 miles east […]
