Beth's Senior Pictures

Hey everybody!

Let's get back to showing off some senior portrait shots, shall we? Chelsey and I recently photographed Beth all around Fayetteville. Beth was super easy to photograph (she laughed at all our jokes!) and looked beautiful! I love her senior portraits; have a look!








Talk to you soon,

St. Catherine's Bell Gable Wedding: Colby and Andrea

Hey everybody!

Today I have a simple and beautiful wedding for you! Years ago I met Andrea, who from the first time we spoke came across as a total sweetheart! I shot her senior pictures around 10 years ago - am I old??? Naaaawwww...

First off, St. Catherine's Chapel at Bell Gables is a breathtaking place for a wedding. Take a look at the place!

My heart thumps for these: drop it MODERN backdrops

Before your scroll down... make sure you're not a work! Secret Sessions are returning to the Benfield Blog so we can show you a little something something we loooooove...

Hey everybody!

Many many moons ago, I had a studio. Blugh. I hated the studio because there were no cool backgrounds out there. Same ol' yuckness (it's a word... I swear).

Then something cool happened: I found drop it MODERN! Yaya! We've been using these backgrounds for secret sessions, headshots, the Benny Booth (see some fun pics here!), and kiddo pics. Since headshots are boring, I putting up some secret session shots from Meredith below (isn't my wife super talented????)...
(Mere shot these on two different dropitMODERN backdrops: peacock and seahorse)








Seriously, we looooove drop it MODERN - if you're a photographer, look at 'em. The quality is RIDUNK, and so are their backdrop stands! Light up your creativity with their drops!

Talk to you soon,
Dale

Peep Sushi with My Two Redheads...

Hey everybody!

HAPPY EASTER!!!

A rare weekend off for me, I made sure not to schedule anything so I could spend some time with the family. More than half of the time was spent in the kitchen (follow me on http://www.twitter.com/dalebenfield for more details on that) and one of my favorite times was creating this Peep Sushi with Ellie and Mere. I found the idea from Lauren Conrad's blog (Hey LC!). On a side note, yes... I miss the Hills.




To you and yours,
Dale
