Advice from some of the best wedding photographers in Dallas

We had the pleasure of interviewing some of the best wedding photographers in Dallas, TX. We asked them for some commonly overlooked things couples should remember when budgeting for their wedding photos. Here’s what they had to share:

“Quality photography and a great customer experience should both be evaluated when choosing your photographer. Experience, skill level, and artful styling are what sets each photographer apart. This industry experience is how price points are created. On average photography is about 20-30% of the total wedding budget.”

– Dallas Wedding Photographer Trish from BeatBox Portraits

“Don’t be afraid to ask questions! For a lot of people, this is the first time they’re doing this, so talking to past brides and industry professionals can help brides and grooms decide what’s important to them and give them proper expectations. Oh, and save some money for prints and albums. Sharing on Facebook and Instagram is fantastic, but there’s something special about having printed photos and albums in your home.”

– Dallas Wedding Photographer Christy from Christy Archibald Photography

“Even if I put my natural bias for professional photography aside, I would still strongly believe, that photography is one aspect of your wedding where, if you have the option, it may not be wise to skimp. As a bride and groom, you spend months, energy, and a lot of money to plan a wedding day that fits your vision of the perfect setting to tie the knot. The wedding, as wonderful as it is, will fly by fast, but what remains is the memory in your hearts and the pictures in your wedding album. Your hobbyist friend’s camera and a photography software may guarantee you a set of pictures of your wedding, but if you’re seeking to capture the experience, the emotion and the complete artfully documented story that you’ll want to keep coming back to, you need the eye of an experienced, highly qualified wedding photographer.

Wedding photography is a learned method and an art, and art doesn’t start with the tool but with the inherent talent of the artist. This is the way of the professional wedding photographer. Their mission is to document the events of your wedding day beautifully and artistically, while at the same time ensuring that no key moment is missed, no emotion or meaningful gesture goes un-captured. So I say, choose your wedding photographer wisely and don’t wing it. If you have a limited budget, don’t be reluctant to ask. Packages can be tailored to your budget, at least they do in my case.”

– Dallas Wedding Photographer William from William Bichara Photography

“Be realistic. If there is a photographer who you really want to work with see if you can change the length of time or end product to work within a budget. not every wedding day needs 12 hours of coverage and an album for every family member.”

– Dallas Wedding Photographer Christie from Azure Photography

“Though not every couple is able to shell out thousands of dollars for this service, there are plenty of excellent photographers in the metroplex in every budget. Keep in mind that, after the day is over, photography is one of the few aspects that last forever.”

– Dallas Wedding Photographer Cortnie from Cortnie Dee Photography
