These Best Wedding Dress nominees this year are incredible. As it turns out, I happen to know a lot about wedding dresses. The things I’ve learned over the years about dresses allows me to have intelligent conversations about them. However, all I know is that sometimes I love a dress and don’t know how exactly to explain it.
While I could say it has to be about the neckline or embellishments, I think it has to do one something much more important. The reason I love these dresses is how they make the brides feel when they wear them. For example, the way their eyes light up shows how happy it makes them. Or perhaps it’s a look of sheer confidence that made them choose THAT dress.–the Best Wedding Dress for them. Whichever the case, that’s what I look to photograph when I shoot bridal portraits.
Other Benny Awards Categories:
And this year, I’m adding in two non-wedding portrait categories for your voting pleasure! 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:
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.
