MEET US

We love going on adventures, laughing until we cry, genuine love, fur babies, and couples who cherish memories made to last. If you treasure family heirlooms, and value showing your children and (one day) grandchildren beautiful albums from your wedding, and you'd like to make two new friends in the process, keep scrolling, We can't wait to meet you. 
Looking for something in particular? Here's where to start:

Hi, We're Dale and Tyler

fine Art wedding photography in Northwest Arkansas

Fancy shoes, a killer (vegan) risotto, crying during vows, playing the saxophone, appreciating a perfectly crafted Old Fashioned, being the first on the dancefloor, and being a bit of a goofball. 

what I'm known for:

Playing the LONG game, they met back up 8 years later, and fell in love. Now they are married and have a baby on the way! You can find them at farmer's markets, exploring a new place, in front of the fire place watching Chopped, or in the kitchen playing their own cooking games. 

Dale met Tyler when we was photographing her sister's wedding. She was the cute maid of honor, and he was the photographer trying not to make every picture about her.  

MEET Dale + Tyler

If having a beautiful experience (as well as gorgeous images) is important to you, we are probably your team. We believe that it is an honor to be a part of your wedding day, and truly cherish every couple we photograph. 
We create true fine art, and lasting family heirlooms to last for generations. Our relationship doesn't end after the wedding day. If you value beautiful, timeless heirlooms, we might just be a perfect fit!

And we aren't for everybody.

We're not like other photographers

When my child asks about Tyler and my wedding day, I'm not going to pull out my phone and scroll, scroll, scroll... Rather, I want a tangible, beautifully crafted book I can physically open and... page by page... show the story of their parents' love and wedding day.

We believe in heirlooms.

It's important to me that every single Benny Bride receives a beautiful, hand-crafted album from her wedding day.  
As a recent groom, and with a baby on the way, I understand the value of having a tangible family heirloom to show my child when they ask about Tyler and my wedding day one day. Instead of pulling out my phone and scrolling to no end, I want to open up the book of our day and tell the story in a way our baby can see... and feel.
Because of this, all of our packages include this treasured family heirloom.

After 13 hour flight from Dubai to NYC we returned from our honeymoon this evening, and I see two blog posts from Benfield and decide to open them and I was blown away! Jonathan and I are both SPEECHLESS!!!!!! 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! You are so incredibly sweet, professional, and naturally talented! You have a very special gift! 

“ You have a very special gift for capturing such special life moments”

They say the perfect gift for any occasion is a gift that keeps on giving. While planning my wedding I was constantly asked “what means the most to you?” Some girls say it’s the flowers, some say it’s the food but ALL say “I want to make sure I remember that day more than anything!” My biggest piece of advice for all brides-to-be is to remember that flowers die, cakes get eaten, decorations come down, candles burn out, but the memories are FOREVER. The only way to capture those candles, shoes, décor, wedding cakes and flowers are with photographs.Thank you from the bottom of my heart for continuing to give the gift of memories.

I was instantly mesmerized by Dale's work and knew I wanted to work with him someday. Fast forward to my NYE wedding and teenage me couldn't have been more right... now this time I get to be in the pictures that I am still so mesmerized by! Dale and his fiancee Tyler were a dream to work with.On the day of the wedding, Dale arrived early, stayed late, snapped what I call "the money shot" and got every insignificant and deeply meaningful memory in between. We are absolutely obsessed with our wedding photos and truly enjoyed having Dale and Tyler by our side on the best day of our lives. You can't go wrong with Benfield Photography, brides!

 It was like hanging out with friends who are REALLY good photographers

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 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! Benfield Photography is highly recommended!

On our honeymoon, my husband actually said "I wish Dale was here with us to take pics of all the cool stuff we are doing!"

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!

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!

He is so talented at not only taking great shots, but also at helping everyone enjoy being a part of the photos.
