Adventure engagement photography and destination weddings are becoming more popular and are some of the most beautiful and intimate weddings you can have. With an adventure wedding photographer, not only can you have that intimate, remote, wedding you have dreamed of, but you can capture all those memories to share with friends and family that couldn't be there. 

Cliffside sunset weddings to rainy meadow fields, the colors and landscapes of these weddings are sacred to you and your love. A photographer that understands that connection is key to capturing that moment and all the love that is in that one instance. A point in time that changes your life forever and lives on in your memory for a lifetime. Wedding photography is more than just a person and a camera, it is an art to forever capture that breath, that flash of thought, that love.

You have come a long way on your journey and now a new chapter is getting ready to begin. Clay Benedict Photography will join you in this journey as your wedding photographer, and be there with you every step of the way. Passion and love is what Clay captures and passion and love is what is delivered. 

When choosing a wedding photographer that relies solely on natural light and landscapes to create the beautiful wedding photos you dream of, you need someone with the knowledge and skill you can trust. Clay is very skilled and comfortable with natural light and remote locations to be able to provide those services. 


Choosing a Wedding Photographer is usually the second step for any couple when planning a wedding. And having a photographer that will be there with you every step of the way is important. I not only strive to create the most beautiful photos for you but also to provide the best client service. From doing walk throughs of the venue to joining you for rehearsals, and of course being there for your wedding day and beyond. I work with all couples of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and orientations, so you don't have to worry about asking if I will. I am a firm believer of love is love and that it comes in all types. My number one concern is not only capturing those memories on your big day, but also helping make them.

As your Wedding Photographer I am also very passionate about the quality of images. I use Canon cameras and lenses as I feel they best suit the colors and style my clients want to see themselves in. I am a member of Canon Professional Services to make sure my equipment doesn't fail and that my gear is in working order for your wedding day. I am also a member of Professional Photographers of America, which helps with ongoing education and services to make sure I am the best photographer I can be. You can never be a master of anything only a student of life, and I strive every day and every wedding to make it the best I have ever photographed. I constantly challenge myself to be even better every time I pick up a camera.

Being a Wedding Photographer is not only a career for me, but a passion. I get to be with people on the happiest day of their lives and capture what they have worked so much towards. Weddings are big things to plan, and the results are amazing and should be remembered forever. I love helping my couples plan and get ready for their wedding. Because the easier it is on you the easier my job is for me. That is why I strive so much for client service and work every day to be one the best in the industry!


"I want you to know that when it comes to being your Wedding Photographer, I'm here to capture your memories. Anyone can photograph your wedding, but I take a different approach. I capture you. Ditching the standard poses that every Wedding Photographer uses and allowing you to be yourself. You and your spouse are a one-of-a-kind couple, which means your wedding will be unique." ~ Clay
