The team at Benfield Photography has photographed weddings in most of the 50 states and internationally. Our expertise doesn't end with shutter speeds and f-stops.
And as soon as you book us for your wedding, we set you up with the finest and best wedding vendors in the country, depending on your location. We walk through this planning process with you and can offer as much or as little assistance as you want.
The reason we only accept 12 weddings per year is so we can dedicate our focus and attention to the things that matter: you.
It's time you finally booked the photographer you've always wanted.
Frequently Asked Questions
Every wedding gets Dale as the primary photographer. We have talented team who serve as a 2nd or 3rd photographers.
We thrive in efficiency. Your wedding portfolio will be delivered to you within 2 weeks of your wedding date, and often sooner. If your event will run in a magazine or online, we offer 24 hour processing.
We understand concerns with privacy and exclusivity. We provide an encrypted portfolio of images, and have the ability to hand-deliver final photographs, albums, and more. Additionally, we never post images without a release from the couple.
"I had the pleasure of working with Benfield Photography this weekend (Saturday) and I already received the photos back today (Tuesday). EXTREMELY impressed that they already have pictures out to everyone and they are beautiful!! Highly recommend!

While Dale and his team have been described as "fun," we actually pride ourselves on our professionalism. We dress like your guests and will blend in perfectly (nobody likes a sore thumb). We approach familial dynamics with finesse. And we show kindness and respect to the families, guests, and vendors.
Moments are captured thoughtfully and beautifully. We want our artwork to be timeless, allowing it to hang in your home for decades.
Dale is an enneagram #2 (the helper), and lives his life in a way that lifts and empowers others. His motto is "leave people better than you found them." Also, he is excellent at tying bow-ties.
Are albums included?
Yes, each wedding includes a bespoke wedding album. Our hand-crafted wedding albums are custom designed for your unique story. Every wedding is special in its own way, and our custom-designed wedding albums are a beautiful way to show and share that with friends, family, and future generations.
While most photographers charge by the hour, we want to tell the complete story. As a result, we include 9 hours on the wedding day. Say goodbye to cramming 9 hours of wedding into 6 hours of coverage time.
For all weddings with a guest count of 250+ we have additional photographers available. The 2nd photographer is included at no additional cost. Beyond that, we have 3rd and 4th photographers available for a fee.
YOU NEVER THINK IT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU
I've trained photographers all over the country on how to properly backup and store files so there is never a photo loss.
What you see is what you get. Our website is an accurate representation of the images you can expect to receive in your wedding portfolio.
We are comfortable creating beautiful images in any lighting conditions. Power goes out at your reception? (it's happened!) No worries! We love natural light, but also play well with artifical and available lighting.
Dale and Tyler were a dream to work with. Dale was very responsive even on an international vacation!

"This course gave me the courage to finally quit my job, and start my biz!"
Just trust me on this one.
As a wedding planner, it can be tricky to find photographers that click with our clients, have creative energy and is team player on wedding day.
Dale checks every one of those boxes! He also has not been to the venue before, which is no issue for Dale. He had a fresh take on the locations and had creative ideas instead of the "same old same old" types of wedding pictures you see at the venue.
10/10 would refer Dale to future couples.
"there's a very glamorous, romantic quality to his style.
Dale is a true professional and knows his stuff! He was easy to work with, punctual, and professional. On wedding day he was extremely efficient getting all of the shots he needed and we were done with group/family photos post-ceremony in no time! we got all our photos within 1 week of the wedding!! We can't say enough good things about Dale!
Dale is a one of a kind wedding photographer in Northwest Arkansas!
He shoots such crisp, beautiful images and I would HIGHLY recommend to friends, family, and clients!

for timeless photographs
i can help because i've been there
Five years ago, I was planning my own wedding.
I didn't want to settle on a photographer who was great at portraits but didn't specialize in indoor lighting. Because our reception was inside, it was important to find someone who matched my level of perfection when it comes to lighting.
The bottom line is this: You deserve to have timeless photographs from a photographer who anticipates moments, knows how to authentically capture portraits (no cheesy prompts or awkward "whispering" here), and loves love.
but nowI know how to help!
We for you if:
you value art
you invest in quality
You enjoy an experience
We're probably for you if...
Experience doesn't really matter to you
you're looking for the lowest price
you value trends over timelessness
If you're on the fence about hiring Benfield Photography for your wedding, I would love to meet in person (or over zoom or facetime) to see if we vibe well. It's important to feel so comfortable with the photographer who will be there on your wedding day, so let's set up a time to chat.
