About Benfield Photography Connect With Us

Benfield Photography started in 1998 and quickly became one of the most sought after studios in the area.  After moving the business to Arkansas in 2006 (because Dale fell hopelessly in love with Meredith and hated being so far away from her), Meredith joined Dale as a full-time wedding photographer.

We describe our images as timeless, storytelling, with amazing portraits.  We work hard to capture all the little details of your wedding day, while also collecting all the special moments that you'll want to hold on to, and shooting great wedding portraits of the bride and groom. We pride ourselves in being able to shoot these no matter where in the world you're getting married, as we work in all types of lighting situations, and also take into account your wedding style. We're able to capture your wedding day whether it be a vintage wedding, rustic wedding, modern wedding, green wedding, etc.


Aside from weddings, we also take on other jobs.  To step out from Dale's shadow, Mere started her own branch of Benfield Photography, specializing in classy and beautiful boudoir images, affectionately called Secret Sessions, while still photographing weddings with Dale.  She's also our Photoshop Queen Bee.


In 2007, Lauren and Jessica joined the team who also shoot weddings for Benfield Photography.


Lastly, Stephanie is our fabulous office manager and handles scheduling, assists at shoots, runs the Benny Booth, designs our engagement websites and wedding albums, and does all the behind-the-scenes stuff  you'll never see, (but help us run super smoothly)!

We love being out there and transparent so you can get to know us!  Feel free to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook!
