Voted Top Picks from The Knot and Wedding Wire
David surpassed all expectations and took some of the best photos I've ever seen.
My husband and I were so lucky to have David Benoit do our wedding pictures last month! We got married in Portsmouth and I wasn't sure how "picturesque" our photos would come out because of the time of year and because we were in the middle of a busy city. However, David surpassed all expectations and took some of the best photos I've ever seen. He is immensely creative, fun, professional, hard-working, and truly the master of lighting (and flattering angles). From getting to our venue early to check out the surroundings, to walking us downtown to capture the essence of our nautical themed wedding, David was nothing short of amazing. We could not be happier with our photos! I highly recommend Benoit & McCarthy Photography to anyone who wants the best of the best.
I truly hope this review helps someone pick their photographer because Benoit and McCarthy are so amazing that everyone deserves to be this happy with their wedding photos. Gaby and her team were amazing at my wedding. The photos are absolutely stunning. I can't even believe how she captured every moment so beautifully. She is so personable and professional. Her work is unparalleled. I urge you to either go on their website or on Facebook and look at some of their photographs. She is amazing at adding her own personal touch to bring the photos to the next level. She did our engagement session as well and both sets of photographs are amazing. Her prices are Very reasonable especially for the final product you receive. She loves what she does and is so passionate about her work. Her talent is reflected in the quality of her work. I hope that anyone looking for a photographer seriously considers Benoit and McCarthy because you won't be disappointed!
Dave and Gaby are exceptionally professional and talented and captured beautiful moments from our wedding. So lucky to have beeb able to work with them! You will not regret choosing Benoit and McCarthy!
Gabby is amazing! She definitely understood our wedding and listened to what we wanted. She made us feel so comfortable. Our pictures came out unbelievably gorgeous. She had such vision and creativity and would create perfect shots.
David and Gaby were wonderful to work with while planning my wedding! We spoke to them on the phone, went and visited their studio and David even came down one day a few months before the wedding to drive around and make sure all of our photo locations would be perfect! He was photographing from noon until 9pm the day of - no extra fees for travelling or extra hours etc. We haven't gotten the pictures back but he said they'll be done soon - less than 2 weeks after our wedding day! We can't wait to see them and know they'll be beautiful like all of his other work!
Very professional and photos were very artistic. They also helped me out with hardly any notice
We absolutely love the Benoit & McCarthy photographers! They promptly responded to our emails, set up appointments, and scheduled our engagement photo shoot within a week's time, on very short notice. They made us feel super comfortable and happy at the photo shoot, keeping us laughing and working with our many outfit changes. Not only did this company select an excellent venue for the shoot (the Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA), but they also paid careful attention to lighting, accessories, poses, and my mother's specific requests. If you are looking for a PROFESSIONAL and EFFICIENT photographer who will get your photos turned around in a jiffy, we would HIGHLY recommend the Benoit & McCarthy services. Best of all... they offer an excellent price for excellent work, much less than we expected to pay.
There are no words to explain how awesome BENOIT and McCarthy are. We had the pleasure of working with Gaby!! She is a true professional when it comes to pictures and capturing the perfect moments. Looking at our wedding pictures we are speechless. They are STUNNING!! Loved working with her and her creativity takes it to the next level. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for wedding photography.
We chose Benoit after a recommendation from a friend and after being impressed with all of the photos on their website and pinterest page. And we sure are lucky we went with them! Gaby was so great to work with from the moment we visited her for our consultation. She understood exactly what we wanted for pictures and went above and beyond. Gaby grabbed all the best shots and took control when the day came and we can't thank her enough for that. We also had her bring a second shooter and that was huge! I totally recommend having a second shooter. I also sent Gaby some shots I wanted of us and a list of family members I wanted to take photos with and she made sure we got them all. It was amazing how on top of everything she was. Can't say enough good things!
As soon as I saw photos taken by Benoit & McCarthy, I KNEW they were exactly how I would want my wedding photographed and remembered. The photos are STUNNING. They are artistic, yet really captured the happiness and joy felt at my wedding. David and Gaby are incredible photographers and wonderful to work with. They listened to me and truly cared about my thoughts and wishes for how I wanted the wedding to be photographed. They are beyond friendly and I felt comfortable working with them at all times! They were friendly and professional with all of the guests- including members of my bridal party that could be difficult when it comes to photographs. It was a chilly day in April, so David worked quickly to get the outdoor shots of the bridal party before the wedding (which I highly recommend if possible!). The pictures are stunning and we are so happy. They both also seemed to care SO MUCH about getting the best photos/lighting- David had my husband and I go back outside at sunset for some additional shots He worked very quickly so we wouldn't be gone from the wedding for more than a few minutes. The photos are beautiful. I can't recommend them enough! In addition, the price was great. Because I knew from the moment I saw Benoit & McCarthy's sample photos, I wanted to use them; I hadn't priced too many other places. However, speaking to other brides, our price was EXTREMELY reasonable! One more thing to mention! The photos of the wedding details are unbelievable. The photos David took look like they are from a bridal magazine. Again- I can't recommend them enough!
Gaby shot our engagement photos last weekend and we could not be happier. The photos are gorgeous! Gaby has been a pleasure to work with and we are very excited to have her photograph our wedding in a few months.
Gabby and David were amazing! Super professional. Made everything easy and made everyone comfortable. They did a great job of creating beautiful moments and incredibly beautiful shots. They were easy to communicate with and work with throughout the entire process. On top of all of that, our pictures were absolutely perfectly gorgeous!!! So many people told us they were the most beautiful wedding pictures they had seen. Not cheesy, not forced. Just beautiful.
Based on reviews here and recommendations from our venue(The Commons) we decided to meet with Dave a bit over a year prior to our wedding. We were very impressed with all the photos we had already seen but decided to go with them for sure after the meeting. We never actually met Gabby but did speak with her via email several times. Dave shot out wedding with an assistant and the photos were amazing, exactly what we were looking for. Turnaround time was a little over a month(which I thought was fine) then all the photos were posted online and we received a flash drive with all the images. You will not go wrong with Benoit and McCarthy, highly recommend.
I cannot rave enough about Benoit & McCarthy!! We hired Gaby for our wedding and there is absolutely no regret whatsoever! We just received our photos and we are super happy about them all, so many friends have reached out to us to compliment the pictures and state just how great of a photographer Gaby is! Gaby was so easy to work with; setting up times to chat and just getting everything we had requested. I told Gaby I wanted magazine photos and that is exactly what she gave me. My husband and I felt like stars while Gaby snapped away throughout our whole honeymoon we chatted just how excited we were to see our pics and again we could not be anymore happier with the way they came out. I will forever be grateful to Gaby for capturing such beautiful photos of our special day. She is HIGHLY recommended, you will not be disappointed!
Benoit and McCarthy did my best friends wedding so when It came my turn I trusted Benoit and McCarthy to do mine! I was lucky enough to have both Dave and gaby shoot my wedding and my pictures are beyond my wildest expectations. Since my photos posted I had dozens of people say my photos belong in a magazine, even family friends that are photographers were impressed! Their style is classic and timeless and I know I will look at my photos 20 years from now and love them just as much! They were very easy to work with and they never got in the way during my wedding. This was important because I have been to dozens of weddings and have seen some aggressive photographers. My husband and I are so happy with our photos and will continue to recommend Benoit & McCarthy!
I tried to make the selection process of a photographer for my wedding as painless as possible. There are SO MANY great vendors out there, how do you even begin to choose?? I feel like I looked at at least ten because the right photographer was the most important selection for me (aside from the dress, of course!). The photographs will last a lifetime, and I really needed someone that understood my awkwardness infront of a camera and for someone that had a great creative eye and style. I found Benoit and McCarthy, specifically Gaby, on The Knot website. I met Gaby at her home studio in Danvers and I loved her the second I met her - her studio was gorgeous and her portfolio was impressive - though I saw photos online, seeing her actual albums in person was wonderful. She took the time to sit with me and walk me through her quote, and discussed how she could make me the most comfortable on my wedding day. I chose her immediately, and I am so glad that I did. Fast forward to my wedding, she arrived right on schedule with her assistant, Tom. They have such a great chemistry together and worked so well to capture all of the important angles during my ceremony and reception. So many candid moments were caught, and several beautiful portraits were captured - I especially loved her use of accent lighting - it really gave some dimension to my photos. Gaby delivered my photos back to me within three weeks of my wedding - so fast! My now husband wasn't involved in the decision making process of selecting a photographer - when she and Tom went to their "getting ready" location he was blown away too!! She had the best sense of humor and skill to get the guys pumped up and laughing and ready to enjoy the day ahead. Gaby is so professional, talented, and beyond personable. You will not go wrong if you choose Benoit and McCarthy, I plan on using them in the future for any other special occasions that may happen and I recommend them to all brides. Thank you Gaby and Tom!!!!
Highly recommend Benoit and McCarthy, Dave photographed our wedding which was back on October 31st 2015 and the photos are amazing. We had noticed most of the samples at our venue were from Benoit and decided to get in touch, we met with Dave about a year before the wedding and set everything up, after the meeting there was really no question that we'd go with them. The day of the wedding everything was on point and we had the photos about a month later. Bottom line, you will not go wrong selected Benoit and McCarthy for your photography.
HIGHLY recommend GABY from Benoit & McCarthy! Our wedding pictures came our so beautiful! She really capture the beauty & FUN of our wedding!!
She is THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jon was our photographer and he was really good with us. We left our initial meeting with him and really liked him and felt he was the best fit for us. Our engagement session was fun. He showed us ways to pose so we didn't look awkward and also encouraged us to have fun with it. On the day of the wedding, he was there with his assistant Eric before I got there. He got elements and small but significant details that I would not have thought about. They were very professional. The whole family and wedding party really like him. And Eric, he fixed my dress so many times so they could get all the details. I know its their jobs but they did it so well and really seem to enjoy what the were doing. Most importantly they were not obtrusive and in your face all the time but still managed to get all the shots. Absolutely loved and enjoyed working with them. Will use them again (have two sisters so hopefully there will be other weddings in our future as a family). Thanks Jon and Eric.

Gaby and her assistant were amazing and a joy to work with. She was professional, organized and quick. She knew the types of photos (parents, wedding party, bride & groom with brides side, etc.) in and out and was able to arrange everyone effortlessly. The result. AMAZING photos. I would absolutely use Gaby again and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. Gaby will work with you and go to various locations so you not only have pictures at your ceremony and reception sites. We went to the beach and even train tracks (her assistants suggestion)! The pictures are amazing. Gaby also used accent lighting. Benoit & McCarthy are the only photographers that I knew of that did this and is one of the main reasons I chose them. The lighting made an immense impact on our photos. They truly look like they belong in a magazine! Take a look at the photos of Benoit & McCarthy. They speak for themselves. The fact that they are so friendly, professional and amazing to work with are just an added bonus!
We had Gaby and David as photographers for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with the service and the quality of their work. The pictures were stunning and they captured all the magic of the happiest day of our lives. We also had our engagement pictures taken by Gaby and she went above and beyond that day. We wanted to include our dogs in the pictures and she brought an assistant(her lovely daughter) to walk the dogs so they would be tired and easier to handle for their shots. Needless to say the pictures came out beautiful.
David was amazing to work with. He and Gaby have a beautiful studio where we could review their work and talk about their photography style. The wedding pictures were amazing! They put a lot of care into making sure the lighting was good and captured beautiful moments - posed and unposed. They made us, our family, and friends all feel so comfortable. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!
Gaby is so great to work with and she has tremendous vision when it comes to photos. From the beginning to end of the night she is constantly involved and made taking the photos fun for everyone. The weather we had wasn't great, cold and windy, but she still was able to make it work and get some great shots, she adapts well to any conditions. Thanks for everything!

HIGHLY recommend GABY from Benoit & McCarthy! Our wedding pictures came our so beautiful! She really capture the beauty & FUN of our wedding!!
She is THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
David Benoit is an amazing photographer...his photos are a masterpiece! He truley is the best of the best. David is such a genuine nice, personable guy, and a pleasure to work with! My husband and I got married on 5/13/2017 in Peabody, MA and the reception was at Hammond Castle in Gloucester, MA. There was about a 3 hour gap between the wedding and reception. David knew just the place to take us to before heading to the castle for additional pics. We left the decision up to him, since he is the expert, and he did not disappoint! We went to Tuck's Point (Manchester-by-the-Sea) for a photo shoot. It was just my husband and I, which gave us a little alone time before heading to the castle to get wedding party pictures (a perfect break for us). The pictures taken at Hammond Castle were amazing! David was able to capture fantastic photos of the wedding party, family, and reception! My husband and I are so delighted with how the photos turned out! We could not have asked for a better photographer!
I don't know where to begin. From the moment I met Gaby I knew she would be the one to capture our wedding. Gaby is by far the sweetest, and most talented photographer I ever encountered. She is so gifted, and her work is just absolutely amazing!! Me and my husband couldn't be more happier with our engagement, and wedding photos. Every photo she captured is just so breathtaking and look like they all belong in a magazine. I was crying tears of joy when I looked at my pictures because she literally captured it all from start to finish. She was so great to work with and was very organized. She knew exactly what type of shots I liked without having to tell her. I can't say enough great things about Gaby and would highly recommend her to anyone. So if your looking for a wedding photographer don't look any further book Gaby!!! I'm sad that my wedding is all over with because I really loved working with Gaby. Gaby me and Jeff can't thank you enough for all our stunning photos. You truly made our night a magical one we will never forget. We will cherish all these stunning photos forever.
The moment we met Gaby, we knew that we were going to be in excellent hands. The quality of the work on display at that first meeting was astounding, and the quality of the final images we received was even more stunning. Gaby was also incredibly responsive, answering emails within 24 hours. She really made us feel like we were her only commitment, and that made everything that much more special. The day of the wedding, Gaby and her assistant were incredibly professional and courteous. They made sure the photography session ran smoothly and quickly so that we could get inside to our guests. They set up shots quickly, and were clear in communicating what they needed us to do for each photo. I cannot recommend Benoit & McCarthy, and especially Gaby, highly enough. These photos are our memories, and Benoit & McCarthy made them perfect.
