EVERY PHOTOGRAPHER HAS THEIR OWN STYLE.
At Benfield Photography, we think of our style as fun, fashionable, and fabulous (just like our clients)!  Just like any style, ours is constantly evolving! Even though we have been photographing weddings since 1998, we are still changing and growing.

One unique aspect of our style is that we are great at finding beautiful light (as opposed to creating artificial light, which can be unflattering and harsh). We call this light that we so lovingly use as “Benny Backlight.” I haven’t found a single person that doesn’t look amazing with a little Benny Backlight! We love using light and color to make your wedding images breathtaking!

FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS

 

We also use what God gives us to create our images. I like to think of it as the chef that goes to the Farmer’s Market to buy what’s fresh and in-season. When you look at the blog in October, you’ll see lots of yellows, oranges, and reds because we embrace the season! During spring months you’ll see color… lots and lots of color!  Shooting this way keeps us inspired and fresh!

I can without a doubt say that hiring Benfield Photography was not only the best decision we made regarding our wedding, but also the best money I've ever spent on anything in my life. Like countless others, I became obsessed with them through religiously following their blog long before I'd even met Tyler. We met with them before we were even engaged to make sure we'd be able to have them photograph our big day. They perfectly captured all of the joy, excitement, happiness, and love that was present at the Clinton Library as I became Tyler's wife. They have become an integral part of our marriage as they've photographed the proposal, our engagement portraits, my boudoir portraits, the wedding, the reception, and even our 1-year anniversary portraits. The thing is, you don't just get photographers with Dale and Meredith.... you get people willing to jump in with your husband and help plan & capture your proposal; you get people who get just as giddy with excitement as you do when you ask if they can shoot an engagement video for your rehearsal dinner; you get people who literally go above and beyond every single year to host an awards party (the fabulous Benny Awards, holla!) just to show their clients how thankful they are for hiring them; and if you're lucky enough, you get a couple of hilariously amazing people who transition from your wedding photographers to your friends. They were worth every cent, and there is no way I could replace what they have given me. Their talent is unmatched, and their work is impeccable.

We approach weddings like we were longtime friends of the couple, which in most cases becomes the reality.  By becoming close over the engagement process, it's easy for us to create a deep bond with our couples, and makes photographing them really easy because they are comfortable in front of our camera (even if they aren't fans of being photographed).

 

We absolutely cherish our one-on-one time with the couple on the wedding day (it's our favorite part of the wedding day, by far!), because we get to share some really important time with them and create amazing portraits.

About Benfield Photography

 

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.

 

Lastly, Rachel 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 and deliver the kind of service you expect from Benfield Photography)!
