Chris Bendet captures weddings in a style that mixes fun and fashionable unposed portraiture with the spontaneous photojournalistic moments of a wedding day.

He believes that each couple is unique and their wedding images should capture the events, emotions and celebration of the day in a unobtrusive
and artistic way.

Chris holds a degree in photojournalism and was an award winning Associated Press photographer and photojournalist for a large newspaper. He apprenticed with several fashion and lifestyle photographers prior to working for Hallmark cards
which brought him to Kansas City in 2002.

He has photographed over 300 weddings over the last 12 years and has the experience to capture the memories, emotions and details of your wedding day. Regardless of location or weather his experience will guarantee that your wedding images are fun, stunning and fresh!

Chris is incredible. For the engagement session Chris was patient with my shenanigans and had a perfect vision for our pictures- which turned out better than I could have ever imagined. On our wedding day Chris was phenomenal. Him and his partner were so kind and so focused on capturing every memory we could want. That day was definitely full of nerves and chaos and Chris was such a calming piece amongst all of the chaos. He listened to us, laughed with us and dealt with our goofiness. I have never seen wedding pictures as beautiful as ours and we have Chris to thank for that. He is truly an artistic genius and is an incredible photographer. We will definitely be seeing him again soon and will be recommending him to EVERYONE!!!

Chris and Adam did a FABULOUS job with our pictures! From the beginning it was evident that Chris cared for us as a couple and wanted our event to be as perfect as possible. He's such a laid-back guy with a great personality. And his photos!! So perfect!! They were everything we hoped they would be and captured the true joy of our wedding. The smiles are genuine and that is what we hoped to see as we look back on these memories forever. We recommend Bendet Photography to anyone and everyone who wants to work with a kind, caring person who produces fantastic photos! We will be going back to him for all our future photo needs!

Chris did such an incredible job as our photographer at our wedding! He is extremely creative and passionate about his job and it really shows in his work. He does his research on the area that you are getting married and comes up with some really cool photo ideas! He is very talented and we were extremely pleased with both our engagement photos and the wedding photos. My favorite part of his photo packages is the video he creates with your pictures to capture the entire day. The video is priceless and brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it! We have gotten NUMEROUS compliments on our pictures and the video and had such a hard time picking out our favorites!

Chris worked very well with the wedding party. He was very easy going and kept a great balance between taking some really great pictures and letting the wedding party enjoy themselves. He did such an incredible job of taking pictures of every moment of the day. He has so much experience with weddings that he helped with the schedule and what to expect on the day of the wedding. Being my one and only wedding, I had very little knowledge of what REALLY happens on your wedding day! He really did such an incredible job, and my husband and I highly recommend him!

5 out of 5 stars easily! We worked with Chris and he was very professional, responsive, and most importantly you could tell he really has a passion for his work. My fiance and I met with Chris prior to our wedding day because he said he likes to get to know the couples and determine the style of photography he will use, our wedding scheme, and where we would like to shoot. We liked this again because it showed his passion but also so we could get comfortable with him. Highly recommended!

Chris Bendet was great! My now Husband and I used him for our engagement photos as well as on the day of the wedding. When I first approached Chris about hiring a wedding photographer he helped us create a package that fit our needs as well as would stay within our budget. He was very professional throughout every meeting and likes to make sure that he captures the essence of his clients personalities by getting to know you a bit before he shoots your first session. Our engagement session happened to be on the coldest day of the year in december (it was actually 7 degrees), and we still did the shoot outside at several locations and got awesome photos!! Before the wedding we had a meeting to discuss the order of events, photo list and other day of details. I sent Chris some photos that I liked from Pinterest and other websites to give him some clue as to what I wanted, and we also talked about several location options, including a rainy day plan. Our wedding was in early April, so there wasn't a whole lot of bloom yet, and Chris was concerned about making sure that I was aware of that fact and that we would have to do somethings differently in order to get the pictures we desired. On the day of the wedding, there are so many hectic things taking place as it is, that it was nice to have Chris, and his associate photographer Danielle, arrive promptly when they said they would and get straight to work. They knew exactly what photos they could get done ahead of time and where we were going to take photos. it was great that he directed the limo driver so that my husband and I could enjoy the day and the company of each other/friends. He was very prompt in the turn around time for both photo sessions, and gave us a photo release with all of the photos. We got everything we ever could have wanted out of our photos and will definitely plan to use Chris in the future! I would highly recommend Chris to anyone I know who has photography needs. Thanks Chris!!

Chris is very enthusiastic and willing to work with the clients and what they want. We had a very hectic schedule leading up to our wedding, and the schedule we had for the photos changed up until the day of the wedding. None of this seemed to bother Chris and he was very flexible. We also received our pictures very quickly after our wedding on a CD that was in a lovely case with our photo on the front. Chris captured many stunning photos and I was very excited to see all the pictures after our wedding.

Chris is very enthusiastic and willing to work with the clients and what they want. We had a very hectic schedule leading up to our wedding, and the schedule we had for the photos changed up until the day of the wedding. None of this seemed to bother Chris and he was very flexible. We also received our pictures very quickly after our wedding on a CD that was in a lovely case with our photo on the front. Chris captured many stunning photos and I was very excited to see all the pictures after our wedding. Read less

Chris was great to work with. I could tell from the first meeting he was easy going and took an artist approach to his wedding photography. We had a wedding that wasn't typical, meaning we weren't 20 years old, giant affair, lots of drama and dresses. We were older, low key, second marriages, etc. Using Chris fit us perfectly, and I do believe he would fit with any wedding type. The pictures themselves turned out great! And it was great how Chris fit himself in kind of invisibly at the event and captured so many great pictures of bride and groom, the ceremony and then the reception and cake. Definitely recommend Chris and Bendet Photography.

Bendet Photography was one of the easiest and most reliable parts of our wedding day. Everything was handled efficiently and professionally. Chris was unbelievably patient with us, especially during a cool Kansas July afternoon.(it was something like 100 that day)
