Tabrina and Andy's Fayetteville Engagement Portraits



Hey everybody!

The summer before 10th grade started, I remember getting up mega early for the first day of band practice (which sounds way cooler than what it actually was: band camp). My nervous hands held my saxophone as I reported to my group of other saxophone players. Since I act out in nervous situations by either being funny or bad, I made quick friends with Tabrina, who has the best laugh.  She and her group of 11th graders welcomed me with open arms (after I got told to "shape up or ship out" from the band director).  That group of friends added so much to my high school days.  V thankful for them.

Since then, Tabrina and I have stayed in touch, and I've been so happy to see her find Andy. They made the drive from Oklahoma to Fayetteville for their engagement portraits and we braved an insane temperature drop and some crazy wind to get some pretty rad portraits.  Here are a few of my favorites.

New York Couple Portrait Session for Sidra and Sean (plus a BONUS!)



Hey everybody!

If you follow me on instagram (@dalebenfield), you saw that I recently got to spend a few days in NYC. While there, I was so happy to see my LONGtime friend Sidra, and meet her boyfriend Sean. They are a precious (and brilliant and driven) couple and I insisted that I shoot some portraits of them during my stay. The Big Apple has so much to do and see, and so many backdrops for couple's portraits. We meandered around their neighborhood of Long Island City and shot with some really amazing views. Check out a few of my favorites below.

ALSO! BONUS! I'll be back in NYC and have a couple spots available for December 8th for mini sessions. If you're in NYC and want some gorgeous portraits, hit me up (email: dale@benfieldphotography.com). If you are NOT in NYC, but know someone who is, hit THEM up! ;)

Vineyard Fashion Session at Sassafras Springs



Hey everybody!

I mean Y'ALL. Can it get any better than a vineyard session? Sassafras Springs hit it out of the park. I had tons of fun with these ladies from Impressions, the venue was gorgeous and so are they! There's nothing to "wine" about here! Always love working with Reagan (follow her blog here). Raise your glasses and take a look at some of my favorite shots.

Fashion Blogger Photoshoot For Emily Gemma



Hey everybody I made a new friend!
Of course everyone knows my affinity for fashion, but Emily (you'll know her from the "Sweetest Thing Blog" http://www.thesweetestthingblog.com) far surpasses me. We headed to downtown Bentonville for this session, and it was phenomenal! After all, it is only appropriate that the blogger herself gets blogged about! These are the first set of some of my favorite pictures from the afternoon! Enjoy:)
