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 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 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.

Chris was the the first and only photographer we looked at to photograph our wedding and we couldn't be happier. Chris was easy to work with throughout the entire wedding process from engagement pictures to the wedding day. He was always available if we had any questions or concerns. On the wedding day, with all of the stresses and craziness that is going on, Chris played a huge part in having things go as smoothly as possible. During the ceremony and reception I hardly noticed he was around snapping pictures. Our reception was at the Foundation Room in the West Bottoms and Chris found some fantastic locations around that area to take the Bride and Groom shots...they ended up being my favorite. 4 weeks after our wedding, Chris invited us to his studio to view a slide show presentation he had put together with music. It was an amazing thing to be able to relive our entire wedding through those pictures. His prices seemed a little expensive at first, but with the experienced photographer you are getting and the quality of the pictures it is well worth it. It is definitely worth it to make it a part of your budget. We truely couldn't be happier!!

Chris and Dawndy were so fantastic to work with! At first, I'll admit, his prices were a little out of our range. But when he was the last photographer we had talked to that day, and we talked to him for over an hour, we were hooked! We got along so well with him and his portfolio was so amazing that we had to say yes! And the day of the wedding he was great. Super fast but still got awesome pictures and all of the ones we threw at him that day as well as the ones we had talked about in our pre-wedding meeting. Some of the candid/random shots of moments we didn't even know about are our favorite shots from the day. He's well worth the price tag, we can't wait for our prints!

From the moment I sent the first e-mail inquiring about quotes for our wedding, I had nothing but fantastic service from Chris at Bendet Photography. Many other studios only gave me a quote and then followed up multiple times via e-mail to see if I wanted to use them or not; but Chris went the extra mile, he wanted to have a person-to-person discussion to see exactly what my bride and I wanted so he had every detail. This was very comforting on a personal level. We weren't just a quote to Chris, he wanted the details so he could give his honest professional opinion about capturing the most important moment of our life. I wish Chris' professionalism was standard in more industries.
My bride and I viewed Chris' portfolio and loved the style and quality of his shoots. In doing comparisons with other studios, his photos were much better than so many and right in line with the beset. His knowledge of the Kansas City area was astounding, he showed us some very unique locations to use for our wedding day shots and some that we intend on using for future sessions (yes, we already decided to use him for family photos). When we received proofs of our wedding pictures we couldn't have been more happy with the final product. His use of lighting and surroundings was fantastic and made for phenomenal portraits. Chris has a great eye for picture locations, when going from spot to spot if he saw a potential location he ran it by us and we did it and the results were excellent.

Chris was extremely professional and very fun to work with at the same time.
The communication was open, clear, and prompt.
The package pricing was tailored to our exact needs, many studios didn't take time to find out what our needs were.
The pictures were top notch, we couldn't be happier.
Overall, I would highly recommend Chris and Bendet Photography. We will definitely be using Chris again.

Chris Bendet is so easy to work with. I meet with probably 9 or 10 photographers before booking with Chris. He has such a great personality and you know he will do an amazing job at your wedding. When my husband meet him for the first time (after our engagement pictures) He couldn't stop talking about how he was happy about us choosing him. He is very down to earth but at the same time professional. He has great ideas for shots, and he goes the day before and scouts out areas so that way the day of your wedidng you are just along for the ride and not having to worry about anything. Truely an amazing thing for brides. Trust me with all the planning that takes place the months leading up to the wedding the last thing you want to worry about is organizing what shots to be taken. He really is an amazing photographer. And I cant wait to see next week how our photos turn out. I know if they are anything like our engagement photos they will be stunning! And one of my bridesmaids liked him so much she just booked him last week to do her wedding!!!!! That says a lot!

Thanks again!!!!!!

Chris and his wife, Dawndy, are absolutely amazing! I knew I wanted to hire him from our very first phone conversation. In fact, he was $500 more than another photographer we liked, but I wanted to hire Chris so badly that I gave up buying Starbucks for a year to make up the difference! =) He had lots of experience photographing at our venue and was excited to be back for another. He was very open to some of the ideas I had and willing to take some photos like favorites of mine I found on the Internet. Our wedding party was very impressed with Chris and agreed that they never had as much fun taking pictures as on our wedding day! We rented a trolley and drove around the Westbottoms for pictures...Chris had scouted out the area multiple times the week prior and had taken pictures of each location to show us what he was thinking! He realized the night before that there was some construction that may slow us down, so he arrived 30 minutes early to ensure we'd have enough time. I was a bit concerned at first because we only had him for seven hours (which made planning the order of reception events a little tricky), but he ended up staying a little longer and the time factor wasn't even an issue. It's only been twelve days since our wedding and we ALREADY have the disc with over 1000 images. They are AMAZING--better than anything I could have hoped for!!!!! He also put together a slideshow with music that displays about 100 of the photos and burned that to CD as well. I couldn't be happier with the way our pictures turned out. I would recommend Bendet Photography a million times and will probably head back his direction for baby pictures in a few years! =)

My husband and I just celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. To this day, we look back at the pictures from our wedding and are SO thankful we chose Chris to capture it. The photos are invaluable and we continue to get compliments on portraits we have on our desks at work. Chris captured everything...from the tender moments that make us tear up to this day...to the fun/silly moments we still laugh at when we come upon them again and again. He was so easy to work with. Our photographer was the single most important thing to me as far as vendors go. We love his unique and artistic perspective. Chris was/is and outstanding value for a photographer. So much so that he's captured every important life event since our engagement (engagement, wedding, family photos, pregnancy announcement, maternity shots, and newborn pictures of our son). We look forward to the beautiful images he captures of our growing family in the years to come and always look forward to our next shoot!

I should note - I met Chris when he was photographing a friend's wedding that I was in. Seeing how he interacted with the couple sold me on him before he knew it. I will be recommending him to my friends for weddings and family photos.

He definitely listened to our desires and vision for how we wanted our pictures to turn out-and boy did they turn out! They were the most beautiful wedding shots I've ever seen-there was not a single one that we weren't pleased with! My family and friends can't stop raving about the photos. At times, getting in touch was a challenge, but the pictures were well worth it! Best wedding pictures I've seen!

Chris does amazing work! I enjoyed working with him and would highly recommend him. His vision and creativity gave me the most beautiful wedding photos. Far beyond my expectations! For the length and quality of service, his pricing was very competitive. I felt he understood our style and successfully incorporated it into our wedding and engagement photos.

Chris is an amazing photographer and our engagement and wedding pictures are beautiful! If you use Bendet Photography just know that it may take a little while between communication updates or to get the final pictures (or album). They are very busy which I am sure is the main reason and the pictures are more than worth the wait but if you go a little crazy when you don't get an immediate response just be aware.

Amazing artistry!
