I think the reason I like the Best Wedding Getaway category is that I love the idea of leaving in style. Finishing the ceremony or reception on top and having all your friends and family there cheering you on to the next life adventure is really cool. Because not every wedding has a formal leave, I don’t always get to shoot getaways. However, when I do, it’s always a treat!
I’ve photographed everything from sparkler leaves, to snow, to bubbles, but one thing makes the biggest difference: the couple. Whether they are all smiles as they stroll, or teary as they wave goodbye to their parents, you can tell a lot by the getaway.
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.
