Sweet words from sweet brides

Dale,
After 13 hour flight from Dubai to NYC we returned from our honeymoon
this evening, ordered dinner online via Seamless Web and I go into my
email to check for the dinner confirmation and I see two blog posts
from Benfield and decide to open them and I was blown away! Jonathan
and I are both SPEECHLESS!!!!!!!
 We’d been checking our email and
stalking your blog from the Maldives and Sultante of Oman but didn’t
really have time to check email in Dubai so we had no idea the last
two blog posts were our wedding–what a great way to come home!! The
photos are gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! Not only did you capture our
wedding perfectly-you also made it look like a dream come true!
Everything looks amazing and the inside of the barn looks like it is
glowing!
 Since 90% percent of our guests were visiting the Great State
of Arkansas for the first time I really wanted them to love my home
sweet Arkansas as much as I do and I can safely say all of our friends
had a wonderful time and fell in love with Fayetteville, Pratt Place
Barn, and the Razorbacks! We cannot wait to see the rest of the
images.

It was a complete pleasure working with you. You are so
incredibly sweet, professional, and naturally talented! You have
a very special gift for capturing such special life moments exactly as
they happen. We are so fortunate we were able to work with you. Thank
you a million times over!!!

Dale is absolutely the best! He is so talented at not only taking great shots, but also at helping everyone enjoy being a part of the photos. My husband was even impressed with him and so glad that we got to have him apart of our wedding! We couldn't be more pleased with him and all of the memories he captured for us!

Dale was so wonderful to work with...very friendly and talented! He got beautiful shots of our wedding. By the end of our wedding night, my mom was inviting him to our thanksgiving dinner-he truly felt like family!

We had the best experience working with Dale for our wedding! He traveled to Atlanta for our engagement shoot and used his amazing eye to make sure we have engagement photos that we loved! He is also so fun to be around, so we had a great time exploring Atlanta that day! He and Tyler were also fabulous at our wedding! We are so happy that we had them with us the entire day as they did not miss anything and so beautifully captured all of the special moments. My family kept going on and on about how fun he was to be around and how he and Tyler were seamlessly a PART of our celebration all the while taking the best photos! While on our honeymoon, my now husband actually said--"Man, I wish Dale was here with us to take pics of all the cool stuff we are doing!" hahaha! Dale Benfield photography is highly recommended and we hope to work with him again in the future! : )

Dale,

Three years ago today you captured (in my biased opinion…haha) the best image of your career. This single image captured every ounce of a “perfect wedding day.” We chose to get married on my late grandmother’s birthday, June 22 to honor her. She loved a hot sunny summer day to work in her yard and the day of our wedding was nothing short of a hot southern summer day. In this image we will refer to that as the infamous “Benny Backlight” that was absolutely stunning. This image also captured the absolute essence of my wedding gown which also happens to be my mother’s wedding gown from 1980. YES, 1980…no designer for this country gal. The imperfections you see in the wrinkles of my gown was because it was so old and had been preserved for so long. I remember one of my bridesmaids being so persistent about getting those wrinkles out and I finally said just let it be. When I saw this photo I thought to myself, WOW those wrinkles reveal the age of the dress and just how perfectly sentimental it was in its condition just like that. Imperfection is not often accepted the day of a wedding, however the small imperfection of the wrinkles displayed through this image is the true beauty of something old and borrowed in my case. Ironically, imperfection was perfection in this image.





They say the perfect gift for any occasion is a gift that keeps on giving. While planning my wedding I was constantly asked the same question “what means the most to you?” Some girls say it’s the flowers, some say it’s the music, some say it’s the food but ALL say “but I want to make sure I remember that day more than anything!” My answer was always the same, “the memories mean the most to me.” My biggest piece of advice for all brides-to-be is to remember that flowers die, cakes get eaten, decorations eventually come down, candles burn out, shoes go in and out of style but the memories are FOREVER. The only way to capture those candles, shoes, décor, wedding cakes and flowers are with photographs. Those memories are relived through photos for a lifetime following your big day. That, my friend is the gift that keeps on giving. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for continuing to give the gift of memories through all of your photos even 3 years later.
