Wedding Photographer

welcome to blueskyphotography

Wedding photography is more than just taking pictures – your wedding photographer needs to capture the moments of love, promise, memory, passion and joy. My name is Benn Brown and I am the lead photographer and owner of Blue Sky Photography. I have always believed that to capture these moments, wedding photography needs to be real, natural and heartfelt.

I also love being able to photograph the moments you don’t have time to see during your wedding. Grandma wiping a tear from her eye, Dad’s proud stance as he walks his daughter down the aisle and the moment the bride and groom see each other for the first time. 

I take my responsibility to bring you amazing images seriously but at the same want to have fun and be part of your day. I believe the best wedding photography images come from a close relationship with the bride and groom and I enjoy getting to know you while you plan your wedding.

It is this belief that has earned Blue Sky Photography a reputation as one of the leading wedding photographers in North Queensland, photographing weddings in Cairns, Palm Cove, Port Douglas, Mission Beach and the Atherton Tablelands.

Forget boring, over posed wedding photography, there is nothing I love more than the challenge of finding unique and different ways to capture your special moments. Big skies, dramatic beach landscapes, and stunning backdrops are the creative inspiration, but it is always our couples and their loved ones who are the heroes.

My enthusiasm is infectious and I know couples appreciate my fun personality and ability to take control on the day in a calm and unobtrusive manner.

I have won recent wedding and portrait photography awards and am a fully accredited member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) and as such am bound to its code of ethics.


"Prior to picking a photographer for our wedding day, I spent quite a while looking at different photographer's websites and their images. I absolutely loved Benn's photos but what really sealed the deal for Shaun and I was the 'feel' of his website - he seemed like he'd be really fun to work with and that's exactly what we were looking for. In the lead up to the wedding Benn not only set aside time to Skype with us (as we live in Melbourne) about the photography on the day but he was also so helpful in providing advice on other aspects of wedding planning, such as helping me pick my hair and make up artist.

Although I never got to meet Jules, she was always so helpful and friendly whenever I spoke to her and made the organisation process so easy - which is always great during the stress of planning a wedding. I really think we couldn't have asked for a better photographer, on the day Benn was so much fun and the photography was a real highlight for Shaun and me. I have to admit, I don't usually like having photos taken but Benn put me at ease, made me laugh and stopped me from crying and ruining my make-up during photos with my Dad! We had so much positive feedback from our guests about Benn, they said he was extremely friendly and unobtrusive. He went above and beyond to stage some really amazing shots as well as capturing the small moments with family and friends. Now that we've received all of our photos, we couldn't be happier, the shots are truly amazing!"   Jodie and Shaun Mechielsen, married at Palm Cove, 2013
