Best Wedding Shoes Nominees: 11th Benny Awards

December 31, 2019

Filed in: Weddings

Shoes are seemingly a small part of the wedding budget, but these Best Wedding Shoes nominees make quite an impact. I happen to LOVE shoes, even though I don’t know the difference between a pump and a high heel (are they they same thing?). Regardless, I know immediately when I love a pair of shoes.

Over the years, I’ve photographed all sorts of wedding shoes: fancy flats, wedges that wow, and perfect little peep toes. The shoes this year are pretty spectacular, and each were chosen as a nominee for a specific reason. I’ve been less about bold colors the last couple years. However, a bright yellow pair from years ago still sticks out in my mind (I’m talking to you, Andrea M!). Now, I’m more into romantic colors, or neutrals, and the nominees reflect my current taste. All that being said, I’m not claiming to be any sort of style expert. I just happen to like what I like, and these are some of my favorites!

Tabrina's cabernet colored heels are one of the Best Wedding Shoes of the year.

A nude pair of Christian Louboutin pumps will always make my Best Wedding Shoes list! They're a classic.

These short heels by Manolo Blahnik are the perfect color for a classic bride, which is why they are one of my Best Wedding Shoes nominees.
Anna
These white Christian Louboutin high heels are so dreamy, and were a sure-bet to be a Best Wedding Shoes nominee.

Sometimes one pair of shoes isn't enough, so Kaylee had TWO pair of shoes which should--by itself--make her qualify for a Best Wedding Shoes nominee.

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

What are the Benny Awards?

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