Hey there.

I'm really happy you're here.

Photographing love is my calling.

Let me tell your love story.

About Benfield Photography

modern, fine art wedding photography for the discerning bride

I started photographing my friends and family as a way to pay for college (#relatable). What started as a hobby become my passion and now I can't imagine a life where a camera isn't in my hands. That was more than a decade ago and I still wake up giddy on "wedding morning."

Every wedding is unique. Your wedding is unique. Your story is unique. You should pick me to tell it. (I'm really good at it, and you'll love having me by your side on the wedding day).

Photographing love is my calling.

Let me tell your love story.

I've been photographing weddings in Northwest Arkansas, the US, and worldwide for more than a decade. The best job in the world is one where it comes naturally and doesn't feel like work. Because of my incredible couples, I feel like I have yet to work a single day, and show up every wedding inspired and ready to tell your love story.

I can't wait to chat with you about your wedding!

Dale is an incredibly gifted photographer, but much more than that, he treats you like family. He is dedicated to creating lifelong memories for his clients, and getting the best shots, best angles, and best lighting possible. He also brings a friendly and upbeat attitude to everything he does. Dale will always be sure to gently direct you so you’ll never feel awkward behind the camera. I am so grateful for Dale and the kind, talented person he is!

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... I am still so mesmerized by! Dale and Tyler were a dream to work with. Dale arrived early, stayed late, snapped what I call "the money shot" and got every insignificant and deeply meaningful memory in between. We're 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!

Dale is a true professional and knows his stuff! On wedding day he was extremely efficient getting all of the shots he needed and we were done with group/family photos post-ceremony in no time!

We love the images he captured- there's a very glamorous, romantic quality to his style- and we got all our photos within 1 week of the wedding!! We can't say enough good things about Dale!

They say the perfect gift for any occasion is a gift that keeps on giving.  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.
