Hannah and Chaz's Fayetteville Engagement Portraits



Hey everybody!

Literally heartbroken that I was already booked for Hannah's wedding date, but CHECK OUT THESE ENGAGEMENT portraits! This couple is super affectionate and totally in love, which of course means my job was easy to create lovely portraits. We found some cool Fayetteville spots and had a blast!

Arkansas Newborn Photographer: Baby Blass



Hey everybody!

One of my favorite couples just welcomed a sweet baby boy!  Lauren and Alex showed my up to the nursery and I saw one of the most precious nurseries EVER. I had to photograph it, with or without the baby! Haha!  Honestly, everything was so perfect, and I had a fun session with the whole family. Here are a few favorites...

Kindred Barn Wedding Bridal Session



Hey everybody!

For months I've been hearing about the Kindred Barn and about how I need to shoot there. When Lindsey from Tesori and I were planning our most recent collaboration, she mentioned it as a possible venue and I immediately said YES. We had our venue, and our Hayley Paige dress, but we needed help with coordinating...

Enter Details Weddings and Events - I love working with Amy and Pam... down to earth, super sweet, and creative! They did the leg work for so much of the design.  All the way down to that incredible marble cake from Jennifer at Shelby Lynn's Cake Shoppe.

We also got Pigmint involved, who created the bouquet, two wall installments, and a bunch of other little details. Killer, as usual.

Lastly, our model needed pampered by having her hair and makeup done by Bo from Blonde in Fayetteville.

I'm so happy to get to work with such talent!

Desert Las Vegas Fashion Model Photographer



Hey everybody!

This post is kind of a continuation from yesterday (if you missed the 7 Magic Mountains photoshoot, check it out!). Bonnie and I also drove out into the desert for a fashion portrait session. By desert, it was actually a fifteen minute drive from the LV strip, so it's not like camels and hot sun and no water type of thing. Haha! But it sure looks killer! Bonnie is such a great model (and did you see on her Instagram that she got signed by a modeling agency in LA?  Woohoo!)

7 Magic Mountains Fashion Portrait Photography



Hey everybody!

It seems like my feet have been all over the country in the past 30 days! I've already made two trips to Las Vegas for Benfield Photography and I'm loving all this travel right now! Recently Bonnie and I attended WPPI (wedding and portrait photographers international) and had the best time hanging with my lab - Miller's Professional Imaging - and shooting and eating in one of the coolest cities in the U.S.

This session, which we shot for Bonnie's blog (bonniedoesitagain.com) was just outside of Las Vegas at the 7 Magic Mountains - a ridiculously cool art installment in the desert. I also shot a fun little fashion video, which is at the bottom (if you get this post in your email, sometimes the videos doesn't load, so head to the actual blog at thebenfieldblog.com to check it out!).






Isn't she adorable?

Hey everybody!

I am so happy to say I booked Emily and Ford's wedding at a Villa near Florence Italy! OMG! What a great year this is turning out to be!

One blog post was just too few for such an incredible engagement session at El Matador Beach in Malibu, CA. This location is so legit, and this couple is so sweet and lovey! Here are a few more of my favorites!
