My husband and I are so glad we found Chris to be our wedding photographer! He shot our engagement session in the fall and we knew he was the perfect fit for our wedding. He is very down to earth, flexible and genuinely wants you to be ecstatic with your photos. You feel like you've known him a life time after a 10 minute conversation. Our wedding day was far from seamless; getting ready ran long, flowers were late, cranky bridesmaid, etc. but Chris was calm, cool and collected the entire 11 hours. Would highly recommend him to any bride!Sent on 08/15/2015

Kansas City has so many "photographers" that it's hard to know where to start. If you're like my husband and I and want AMAZING photos from a highly qualified professional, you need to meet Chris. He was the first and last photographer we met with. Not convinced just yet? Read my story. I attended a friend's wedding a few years ago that Chris was photographing and I couldn't help but notice the attentiveness he showed towards the couple, the passion for what he does and the quality of his work. It is exquisite! We consider him to be our friend because he listens, he's kind hearted and fun... our wedding party had a blast with him on wedding day. He also had some great spontaenous ideas for photos and unexpected situations which on wedding day is crucial with time being limited and emotions running high. Additionally, he did a fantastic job of understanding our vision and the kinds of photos we wanted, then adding his creativity to capture amazing photos. Chris is incredible... your wedding day only lasts 24 hours, but we will have the most beautiful photos to enjoy for a lifetime because Chris is there to capture it all. We are so glad we got to work with him and like to think that this isn't the last opportunity we have to work alongside such a wonderful person.Sent on 07/13/2015

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!!!Sent on 12/06/2014
We have worked with a lot of photographers over the years and when a bride asks who do we recommend, Chris Bendet is at the top of our list. His wonderful photos speak for themselves. Wonderfully talented and creative edge is what you'll get with Chris. You will not be disappointed. Not only is he a super nice guy but he cares about your day and keeping you on time with your photos.
If you are looking for exceptional photo's and timely results Bendet Photography is who you are looking for. I often ask photographers for a few photo's of the bride and groom at our venue, most of the never get back to me. Within a few day's after the event I had a CD from Bendet Photography. They truly go over and above to take care of not only their clients but there venues. One of a kind service, the best of the best. Thank you for taking care of our brides and grooms on the most important day of their lives great job! Everyone should have the best photos to show their memories on their wedding day!
Chris and I go way back to when you hired a professional you GOT a professional. I'd hire Chris to do my own wedding, even though my wife wouldn't like it. She's not found of bigamy. :) Hire this man!
