Ben Thompson as Elvis Presley

Ben Thompson and I met by chance – he was an Elvis impersonator at Anna and Tom’s wedding! He booked me for a 2-hour professional portrait photography session at my home studio in Guildford.

Experimenting with light sources

Ben is very true to his craft – he even won the Elvis Presley Impersonation World Championship back in 2018! As such, he’d brought a huge variety of outfits from The King’s different eras.

We also trialled different light sources as he struck his rock and roll poses. We used red light, and of course blue light – perfect for those blue suede shoes!

I commend Ben for his ability to go through so many costume changes in just two hours. We shot hundreds of images, many of which he’s now using in his promotional material. Check out my handiwork on the poster just here.

It was lovely to work with you, Ben – I hope to see you again at another wedding one day!
