The Benfield Blog: Sharing My Work

Hey everybody!

When it all boils down to it, I started this blog to share my work with current clients, future clients, and friends/family. From that, this blog has turned into quite a bit more, so today, tomorrow, and Monday, I'll be sharing the reasons I blog with you, and why I made such a commitment to my readers to blog every single day... for ONE THOUSAND DAYS!

I honestly am so flattered when girls (it's almost ALWAYS girls) come up to Meredith or me at a wedding and say: OMG! I feel like I already know you! I stalk your blog every day! The fact that people spend precious time (isn't time so precious?!) reading what I have to say, and looking at images I want to share still amazes me!

Over the years, and the last 1000 consecutive days, I wanna share some of our most-commented-on images with you, as well as a couple favorites of my own. Head with me down memory lane!

People always ask where is the coolest place we've ever photographed. My answer is immediate: Paris France! Shooting a proposal in Paris, France, and then engagements the next day was such a dream!

I of course have to include the engagement shoot in the rain!

People still chat me up about the New York Indian wedding we photographed. One of the most beautiful weddings I've ever seen, no doubt! Designed by celebrity wedding designer to the stars, Ed Libby:

Here's another water shot: UNDERWATER! My camera and I went underwater to photograph the bride and groom's underwater portraits the day after their wedding in Mexico:

This wedding was published all over the place due to the groom being Casey Dick, the Arkansas Razorback quarterback - this wedding was quite fabulous and fun, and we got to work with our favorite wedding vendors!

Another gorgeous bride... no wonder it got so many comments on all their posts! I love this shot that Lauren got...

This image got a gazillion facebook comments, but I love it because it's of Chelsey, our associate shooter and her super sweet husband, Josh.

Lastly, I know this isn't an image, but I have this video that means so much to me: it's of some of our clients saying sweet things to us at one of our Benny Awards parties... I LOVE our clients!!!

Thank you, readers, for appreciating our work at Benfield Photography! We love that you keep coming back!

Talk to you soon,
