Alex and John Michael's Engagement Portraits



Hey everybody!

I could stare at pictures of Alex and John Michael all day long. They're both very model-esque, but you can also see just from looking at them that they are just really great people! I love hanging out with them and I'm lucky to call them friends in addition to being their wedding photographer. We ran around a few seldom-used Benfield Photography locations and they went perfectly with Alex and John Michael's planned outfits. Have a look at some favorites below.

Baller Foodtruck: Open for Business!



Hey everybody!

Exciting news: Baller Foodtruck is open! There were about a thousand different things to apply for, stacks on stacks of paperwork to fill out (no wonder there aren't more foodtrucks out there!), but we put in the drudge work and it has paid off! We hosted a secret soft opening Thursday night and it really went great! Our chef, Kurt, and I finished the service without a hiccup (okay... there were two little hiccups that were my fault, but they were minor little lessons to learn and I had SO much fun!). It really was a blast!


Iris, one of our favorite people in the world, was able to come and try the s'mores balls!

As soon as we finished, like clockwork, the sky started acting crazy!

And here's a shot from Baller's Instagram - if you want to know where you can find Baller out and about... follow! instagram.com/ballerfoodtruck

Featured on Huffington Post! So cool!



Hey everybody!

How fun is this!?! The Huffington Post (aka HuffPo) asked me recently if they could feature one of our images for a story they were doing, and now it's live! The story is about "offbeat wedding shoes" and they loved the picture of Christy and Kurt in their yellow converse shoes. Check out the link below for more, and scroll down to see the image. So fun! I love our creative couples!

Introducing Baby Denver!



Hey everybody!

Sweet little Denver slept through the entire newborn portrait session, which was perfect because he let us mold him into different positions, roll him around, and all sorts of stuff. But for your teaser, I just had to choose this shot of Denver with his parent's hands. It's just so sentimental and sweet.



More from this coming soon!

What's Hot: Custom Gold Foil on Save the Dates



Hey everybody!

There is a new sexy save the date craze hitting the streets, and we love it! Custom gold foil on save the dates are a great way to draw some attention and make a statement.

I've got another one to show soon, but I have to make sure the Benny Bride has sent them out. You'll wanna see the cool idea on that save the date... I promise!

Tressa's Proposal at Baum Stadium!



Hey everybody!

Meredith and I have been waiting for this call! When Ben reached out to us recently to get us to shoot his proposal to Tressa, it took everything we had not to: 1) scream, and 2) call Tressa! Haha! She's been such a good friend to us for years now, and is one of our most loyal fans (as you know, loyalty is like my number one). Anytime we chat it turns into an hour conversation that seems like 5 minutes: she's just SUCH a great person to be around!

Fast forward to TODAY!

Selfies on the dugout at Baum Stadium was a pretty slick trick to get Tressa up there with him. What's more, he asked some of Tressa's friends to be out in the left field bleachers holding up a sign that says "Will you marry me, Tressa?" - pretty sweet right? She of course said yes, and then Mere and I popped out of our disguises and hiding places to give hugs!

Congratulations Tressa! We love you!!!
