Ben Howland Wedding Photographer
Hunter Valley Wedding Photographer
Weddings are the only thing I photograph. I’m at 320+ and counting, nine years in and loving it more than ever. I mostly shoot Newcastle & Hunter Valley weddings, but if you’re getting hitched anywhere in Australia or New Zealand I’d love to be there.

I’ve written a guide on how to choose your photographer, as well as some wedding planning tips. I also have lists of my favourite wedding venues and the best local wedding vendors.
Liv and I got together when we were 16. We moved to Newcastle after school finished and have loved being here ever since. We got married in 2013 on my parents' verandah. Since then, we've added our doggo Daphne and daughter Hazel to the fam. If I'm not spending time with them, you'll find me looping The Office on repeat while smashing down a pack of cheese & bacon shapes.
Stuff that’s important to me -

•  Supporting marriage equality
•  Encouraging couples to do what they want rather than having to follow tradition
•  Delivering images & albums free of watermarks or logos
•  Being upfront with my pricing
•  Sharing full wedding galleries before booking
•  Involving brides and grooms - the myth that ‘it’s all about the bride’ drives me insane
•  Referring vendors based on merit (my recommendations are genuine, not ads)
•  Using only the best in gear, backups + insurance (I have never lost a file)
