Osage House Preferred Photographer + Vendors



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.





Osage House Preferred Photographer

Did you know I’m an Osage House Preferred Photographer? My mom would be so proud 🙂 I love this because it’s one of my favorite NWA wedding venues and I live right up the road. Being an Osage House Preferred Photographer is kind of a big deal (not only do you have to be a legit biz with business insurance, etc, but you have to be great, have a great rapport, and so on). It’s one of the best venues in the state, so it makes sense that they can be choosy on who they select as an Osage House Preferred Photographer. As a luxury wedding photographer in NWA, I aim to be on the preferred vendor lists for all my favorite wedding venues. This makes me so happy!

Dale Benfield of the luxury wedding photographer company Benfield Photography is a Osage House Preferred Photographer and poses with the bride and her mother in the Osage House reception venue.

More of the Best Wedding Vendors in NWA

In addition to this Osage House Preferred Photographer being there, I was surrounded by a great team of NWA wedding vendors to make the day a huge success.

Dave and a Camera was on hand to capture the video of the day. I’ve worked with Dave a lot over the past two years, and he has become a friend! He’s very talented, quick, and fun. Honestly, those are the three qualities I would personally look for in a wedding videographer.

Cello by Austin provided the ceremony music, and also played guitar and led the congregation in a song during the ceremony. He is multi-talented and such a nice guy. If you have talked to him for more than 2 seconds, you already know this. Total class act.

I have already gushed on Shelby Lynn’s Cake Shoppe about these two cakes, but it bears repeating. The team at SLCS are world class. I mean, truly, Jennifer (at SLCS) has won Food Network cake challenges during her incredible career.

The entire day was such a success. While we had a great florist, caterer, photographer, videographer, etc… it wouldn’t have come together like it did without the focus and love of Reilly Batdorf from Wed by Meg. I only have a few planners in the area that I think are the cream of the crop, and Reilly is one of them. She knocked this wedding and reception out of the park.

While I didn’t get to try this food (you know… vendor meal and all), it looked stunning! Shellie and the team at The Event Group served a beautiful meal.

Pigmint once again came through on these jaw-dropping wedding reception centerpieces. The magnolia leaves were perfect for Ellis’ color palette and fit the high-end Southern vibe of the reception.

I still have the wedding story and portraits from Ellis and Andrew’s wedding at Osage House to share, so come back after the holiday posts for more! Yay!

Talk to you soon,
