You've invested your heart and soul into your wedding day and in your future life as a couple. From your engagement session to your wedding day and beyond, we're honored to capture and preserve your most cherished memories.


get to know us

We have a friendly, relaxed approach that lets you loosen up and allows us to capture your own personalities and spontaneous joy. Experience, technical skill, and professionalism are important factors when selecting a wedding photographer, but having a personal connection and comfortable rapport with your photography team can make the difference between great pictures and outstanding wedding photographs. 

why invest?

step one

Wedding photography is as unique as each individual bride. We get that, which is why our first step is always becoming friends with the bride. Here at Benjamin Clifford Photography, we want to serve a specific kind of bride. Our ideal bride is one who understands that if she wants genuine, joyful photographs of herself and the groom, she needs much more than just a pretty picture! This bride NEEDS an incredible experience throughout the entire process, which is what we strive to provide! 

Lets be Friends!

step two

Our next step is to ensure that your wedding date is set in stone. We want to make your dream a reality, which is why we make sure early on that your wedding date is safe and secure. During this step of our process, you will be sent an online custom booking proposal where you can review your package and pay your retainer. This step ensures everything is official and we can get started. How exciting!

Save the Date!

step three

Once your date has been saved, we will schedule your special engagement session. Don't stress about anything; we will teach you everything! After twenty minutes of shooting, you'll feel like a true professional. Plus, we will probably make you laugh with some cheesy dad jokes. Before your engagement session, we will help you prepare with our custom information-packed 47-page "Style Guide". This will guide you through every step along the way, as well as provide you with plenty of helpful tips, tricks, and information designed to help you have the perfect engagement session!

Engagement Session!

step four

About eight weeks before your big day, we will start making sure we are completely prepared and ready for your special wedding day! We enjoy creating custom timelines for all our couples to ensure you can't miss out on your chance of a dream wedding and pictures to go along with it. We work out each couple's plans to ensure they get all the pictures they dream of. You know all those fun friend shots, dreamy portraits, and detail images that look straight out of a magazine? If you would like any of those, we use this time to plan those out. 


step five

Your wedding day has arrived! All that is left for you to do is relax and let us do all the work. We firmly believe in telling the full story of the wedding with photographs. Due to that, we rarely shoot less than eight hours, except for elopements. Trust us when we say that those eight hours will fly by. To you, your wedding day will be a blur. We make it a priority to capture all the traditional wedding moments, along with all the moments in between. Our goal is to capture your wedding in a fun, creative and unique way.  

Your Wedding Day!

our love notes


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 :)

Emily and Michael

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!

Erin and Alex

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!

Megan and garrett

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.

we would love to hear from you!
