Our motto: you shouldn't have to choose
Over the years, I've fine-tuned and perfected what couples want in a luxury wedding photographer package. The most important item on every couple's list is they don't want to cram 9 hours of a wedding day into 6 hours of coverage. I feel that.
Meeting up for cocktails or a Zoom date will help us get to know each other.
I'll email you a proposal to look over, sign, and pay the retainer.
Then we block out your wedding date, along with engagement and bridals dates.

Those pictures are amazing!!!
Thank you so much for documenting their day in such an art form. You are truly magical behind the camera. Amazing, Dale

When I found out Benfield Photography was booked on my date, I had to make a choice: change my date for my dream photographer, or keep my date and miss out on having the best photograph my wedding. I'm so happy I changed my date!

“They say the best gift for any occasion is the gift that keeps on giving.”
My biggest piece of advice for all brides-to-be is to remember that flowers die, cakes get eaten, decorations come down, candles burn out, but the memories are forever. The only way to capture those candles, shoes, décor, wedding cakes and flowers are with photographs. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for continuing to give the gift of memories.

I've noticed what other wedding photographers wear to a wedding. I promise not to embarrass you with my attire. It's all in the details.
shoot in any light
Is your wedding after sunset? Is your reception in a dark venue? You don't have to worry about tricky lighting. Part of being a luxury wedding photographer is being able to handle any lighting situation.
are not awkward
Yeah, we are aware of how a lot of photographers act and talk. People skills should be as important as photography skills. Especially when making the couple feel comfortable and confident on their wedding day.
will be here in 5 years
I've heard the stories of brides who need a print 5 years after their wedding and their photographer is out of business. We are set up for long-term success so you can have peace of mind knowing your images are safe and secure.
are not trend hoppers
Timeless images are the name of the game in wedding photography. You want to look back at your wedding images in 10 years and feel the love, not the frustration of a dark and moody filter on your photos.
are great with moms
Do you have a picky mom? We have finesse in every situation so even if you and your mom have opposing viewpoints about wedding photography, everyone will leave happy.
While it's true we have over a decade of photo experience, it's about the experience we give each couple that fills us with purpose.
For the 2023 wedding season, we reconfigured our packages to be more inclusive. Instead of making every item in the wedding package a la carte, we are taking a more welcoming approach to wedding packages, by creating a single, all-inclusive package for $9000.
Previously, we would start with a base fee and add hours. Now we just include up to 9 consecutive hours of wedding coverage on the wedding day. FINALLY! You no longer have to cram 9 hours of wedding events into 6 or 7 hours of coverage. We are there for you… day and night. We are also including a hand-crafted bespoke wedding album for every couple! When we sat down to examine our packages, it was important to me that everyone got a wedding album. It’s a fantastic family heirloom.
These changes make the package really user-friendly; you shouldn’t have to choose between seven hours or nine hours. You shouldn’t have to choose whether you want an album or use that money for coverage. Now, you just get both!
All-Inclusive Wedding Photography Package:
up to 9 hours of wedding day coverage
additional photographers available for large events
