Blog | Phoenix Wedding Photographers | Benjamin Clifford Photography

lifestyles and events through the eyes and perspectives of your favorite Phoenix wedding photographers. 

Our blog highlights our favorite wedding venues, portrait locations, and recent work. What's more, you'll likely find valuable wedding-related tips that we've gleaned from our clients and our own experiences... both as wedding photographers and as a couple who, not so long ago, planned our own Big Day!

We might even share a few snapshots as we explore our favorite off-the-trail getaways, hang out with our daughter, and hit our favorite street taco stands. Life's pretty incredible. Aren't we lucky we have a way to freeze these moments forever?

It was an excellent setting for such an occasion, nestled between the desert mountains of Paradise Valley, […]

Why Two Wedding Photographers Are Better Than One Our tag team philosophy and why two wedding photographers are better than one has been proven time and time again. Joy and I, when we work together as part of a two-photographer team, solve the dilemma many solo wedding photographers (and more than a few photojournalists) face: […]

Every couple has their own romantic love story. How you decide to show it and tell it to all those around you is up to you! Engagement photographs can be the best way for you to share your love with those you truly care about. These engagement sessions are so important and should be unique […]

We’ve been all over Arizona with our clients for engagement photography shoots. We love working with “our” brides and grooms to find the perfect backdrop to show off their lifestyle and personality. The Tonto National Forest, just a few hours northeast of Phoenix, is a favorite go-to location for engagement portraits, and up until recently, […]
