Two HUGE things in the post!
First, I forgot to tell you what the winners won! Let's start with that:
The reason bride and grooms started facebook groups to get as many votes as possible is because there was an amazing prize at stake: our Couture Album!
Named because there are about 3000 different combinations, our oversized (12x18) Couture Albums are customized for the bride and groom. Here are a couple shots of our favorites:
Also, our 2nd place and 3rd place finishers in the major categories received gallery wrapped canvases to proudly display in their home!
And now for something much more important. We know that there are many photographers our clients could choose. Some of those photographers even offer the same end products as we do (more and more photographers "flatter" us all the time).
Our clients choose us, and refer us, because we form relationships with them. We care about our clients, and they know it. And it's not just me saying it. The rest of this post is going to be words from our clients that we received in the past week.
Holly Woodward-Hill Thanks so much for a great time last night!!! Picking Benfield photography for our wedding was the best decision I made.
You guys go above and beyond! I can't wait to hang up our new prints!! Yay
Andrew Shelor: Thank you so much to @dalebenfield for an amazing night at the Benny's! Truly the definition of going above and beyond! (from his Twitter)
Seth Jewell: Thanks for doing something like this. I love that Benfield Photography goes above and beyond!!!
Marion Curtner and Clark Donat: Thank you so much for such a fabulous night at the Benny Awards. You two are seriously the most fun and generous people I know and you definitely have a knack for showing your client-friends that they are more than just a business venture and that is a true gift.
Before I sign off, I want to say thank you to all our clients. We love you and we appreciate you. And I want to give a special thank you to Kristin and AJ (remember them from yesterday's video?) for bringing us the monogrammed wine glasses for an engagement present. That really meant a lot to us!
Talk to you soon,
P.S. Below is a fun slideshow of some "party pics" from the, well, party. I'd post these as single images, but there are way to many! What a fun party!
