Yay! We won!! (and other bits of goodness)

Hey friends!

Benfield Photography won!! We'll be photographing Lee and Lensa's wedding in Febrary, 2011, and could not be more excited to work with this great couple! I wanna give a special shout out to my ultra-worthy competition, David Manning and Kristin Hartness. I haven't met David but I do know he's a super classy guy and a great photographer. I've met Kristin a million times - she's one of Mere's best friends and a total sweetie! We refer lots of brides to her when we're booked on their date.

Last week, myself and some of my good photo buddies (and some I've yet to meet) raised some MEGA money for breast cancer research.  $12,249 to be exact!!  We're not finished yet, but I wanted to take a second and shout out a little excitement.  YAY!!!  I can go on and on about how important this cause is, about how even Elizabeth has felt the long-reaching arm of its impact.  But this is a celebratory blog post.  12... THOUSAND... and still going!  If you want a super cool product in exchange for a small "chip in" follow this link.  I have to give a shout out to photographer friend and [b]school member Lydia Shannon, who coordinated the auction and is still working hard for this great cause.  Well done girl!


In short, I wish you readers could understand the power and value you have.  Every day I read comments.  Every day I think about you - what you want to hear, what you need to know, and most importantly, I APPRECIATE YOU.  I love that my blog has become somewhat of a community, or at least a means of us sharing with each other.  I love what this blog has become, because it has become something that involves you.  And me.

Honestly, thank you friends!

Talk to you soon,
Dale

P.S. How about you vote for Art Feeds right now?  Remember, I'm giving them up to a thousand dollars based on # of comments we get!
