Best Wedding Designs Nominees: 11th Benny Awards



The blog contains little bits of my life, my passions, and my work. I update it daily so there is always something new to come see.





The Best Wedding Designs category is probably my most favorite. I’m always in awe of how wedding visions come together, usually with the help of a really great wedding planner. For example, I love seeing a single vision carried throughout the wedding day. Likewise, I try to capture all these little details that mean so much to the bride and groom.

What I love about each and every wedding here is that they reflect the couple. For example the color combinations can say a lot about a couple’s passion. Furthermore, little elements (the macarons, the fonts on the menu, etc) show insights into my interesting and stylish couples.

Take a look at these Best Wedding Designs nominees and then cast your vote below!

While I’ve primarily been a wedding photographer for the past decade, many of my couples have gone on to have families. As my family and portrait clients have grown, I’ve felt an increasing need to represent them in the Benny Awards! This year I broke it into two categories:

Best Family and Baby Portrait Nominees

Senior and Style Portrait Nominees

Are you nominated?

If you are nominated, check your email! I’ve sent you details to our cocktail party / Benny Awards ceremony! To win in a category, all you need to do is get the most votes! Feel free to share this link with your friends and family (and neighbors, churches, etc). Also, previous winners harnessed the power of social media to help get votes; use instagram bio links and facebook posts to get more votes!

The voting is live now, and will go until January 14th. The winners will be announced following the annual Benny Awards ceremony in person on January 31st. Best of luck to all the nominees! It was an honor to serve you!

What are the Benny Awards?

Dale from Benfield Photography throws The Benny Awards party each year for his couples. At the party, the winners earn real prizes for each category, such as best wedding kiss and best wedding shoes. Also, this year Dale added two non-wedding categories because so many of this clients are already married and he wanted them to be represented.
