A Make-Up Wedding? What If Your Photographer Never Gave You Your Wedding Images?


Hey everybody!

I have another super sentimental blogpost to share today. It breaks my heart that there are photographers out there who give the rest of us a bad name. As you know from my crazy workflow and super OCD tendencies that no such thing would ever be the case for our wedding clients, but here's a story of a couple I recently photographed whom it DID happen to!

from Kristin:

Jason and I had a beautiful wedding on April 4, 2009.

Last year, we officially gave up on ever seeing our wedding photos after we heard that our photographers had disappeared in the night. When my husband surprised me with a re-shoot of our wedding photos for our 3rd anniversary, I could not have been more excited...that is until he told me that Benfield Photography would be shooting them for us!

TEARS!

I've been a huge admirer of Dale's work for a couple years now and could not believe that he would be taking our wedding photos. Upon meeting Dale in person, it was like seeing an old friend that you haven't seen in years. I knew immediately that we were going to have lots of fun! This was such a unique and special experience for the two of us (ahem, how many grooms get to go to the bridal shoot?)!

Unlike a real wedding, there was no stress or tight timelines! We could relax and enjoy being together and spending time with our family and closest friends. I am so thankful that our entire wedding party made the trip to Little Rock for the photos!

It was so neat to see how much our lives have changed over the past three years!

However unfortunate and hearbreaking it is that we will never have our original wedding photos, we feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to re-take the photos with such a talented photographer!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for forever memorializing our love for each other and the most special day of our lives.





I was so happy to be a part of this celebration, and you'll be happy to know that Kristin and Jason already have their image files! :)

More from their special weekend coming tomorrow!

Talk to you soon,
Dale
