Building relationships is an essential part of the work I create. The number of weddings I book in Dallas per year is limited. That way I can fully focus on serving you during this exciting chapter of your life. I'm also more than just a wedding photographer - My goal is to create a collaborative work of art with you. You'll find a friend, a cheerleader in your corner, and someone you can count on to capture the moments that matter.
Your experience should be unforgettable
Is this your first time working with a professional photographer? Have no fear! I shoot photos in a candid style with gentle direction. This means I capture the in-between moments where the magic really happens, all while guiding you to make sure you look your best in your photos. My imagery reflects your inner truth & tells the story of your relationship in a beautifully authentic way. My editing style is film-inspired & timeless, so you can toss your worries to the wind, your photos will never go out of style.
I believe in a thing
I'm a huge believer in the value of printing your photos! I offer a la carte options for archival prints, canvases and other heirloom products through your own custom online gallery, as well as high end custom archival wedding albums and coffee table books. Perfect for showcasing your love. Digital images can be lost over time but with your printed photos (lasting up to 100 years in typical display conditions and up to 200 years in dark storage) you can feel confident that your images will stand the test of time, just like your love.

Bailey absolutely CRUSHES IT at her job. She was friggin' amazing throughout our whole wedding process. Engagements? Beautiful. Bridals? Magical. The wedding!?!?!? Was an absolute DREAM and the pictures captured the whole night perfectly. She is so easy to work with and is SO GOOD at her job. She was a huge reason why our wedding day went as smoothly as it did. She knows what needs to be done and when, helped us with the timeline for the day, and then executed it PERFECTLY. I'm absolutely obsessed with our pictures. From engagement to the day of the wedding. I'm already planning for maternity pictures for the baby I'm not even pregnant with yet, so go ahead and get ready for that ;) But seriously, thank you SO MUCH for being so supportive and patient with us. I can't wait to work with you again and will definitely send all my friends and family to you for all their photography needs.

Out of all of our wedding vendors, Bailey with Opal & Onyx Photography was my absolute favorite. It helped that my husband and I were friends with her before the wedding, but even past that, she made our wedding day so much fun. Bailey has so much energy and optimism and completely puts you at ease. My husband and I did engagement pictures with her, I did a bridal session, and then of course she did the wedding day photos. Each session was more fun than the last, and her photos are INCREDIBLE. Bailey really captures her couples' love for each other and their emotions. We are so thankful to have been able to work with her and have nothing but amazing things to say about her! We are so happy with all of the photos she's taken of each step in our wedding journey.

Bailey is just amazing! From a magical engagement photo shoot on our property with Longhorns to a dreamy romantic moonlight wedding day celebration! Bailey took our vision and made it into so much more! She had the best suggestions and really personalized each photo shoot to make it ours! She was so easy and fun to work with as well. If I can give a couple any advice for planning their wedding, it would be to hire Opal & Oynx as your photographer.

Bailey was so fun and easy to work with! She had great recommendations on where to do our engagement session and bridal session, and she made both of them very enjoyable and memorable. She was very accommodating, allowing me to do a sunrise bridal session in the middle of July which turned out beautifully! She's very creative with her shots; I loved how she could just tell us where to stand and what to do, and she just worked all her magic with her camera! On the day of, I loved how organized she was when it came to the timeline of the day; she kept things moving very smoothly! All of our family and guests loved her as much as we did! We're beyond thankful for her and her incredible talent! Our wedding pictures turned out beautifully; our special day could not have been captured more perfectly! Would highly recommend Opal & Onyx Photography! Truly unbelievable!

I loved working with Bailey, she captured the most authentic photos of my fiancé and I. She was able to create the perfect atmosphere! I loved how natural all of our photos felt and how comfortable I was with Bailey taking our photos and directing us. She had the most calming energy and I was able to be myself and have fun. The day was honestly perfect; she was so prepared. I was afraid I would not know what to do with my face during the photos, but Bailey gave me the best advice for natural posing. You will not regret hiring Opal & Onyx Photography! She is a true artist, has a vision with every shot and will make you feel like a bohemian goddess!

Bailey is an absolute Angel sent from above. Another vendor recommended her to me at an open house. When we met up, we instantly clicked. Bailey has such a warm and kind soul that knows how to make you feel great in front of the camera! We took our engagement photos a year out from our wedding and when I got them back, I knew 1000% we picked the right girl for the job! She captured us in the photos. They did not feel staged or posed at all whatsoever. Flash forward to our wedding day. Bailey showed up with her second photographer and immediately did her thing! They were both so easy to work with, they had us laughing and cracking jokes the entire time! Everyone in my bridal party and family loved working with them! The photos were absolutely breathtaking. I cried, and still do, going through them. She knows how to not just take photos, but make them come out as beautiful pieces of art that you will want to put everywhere for people to see. Bailey is singlehandedly the best vendor I chose for my big day. I not only gained a lifelong photographer for every major event in my life, but I truly feel like I have gained a friend and supporter with her. You will not regret choosing Bailey for your big day!

You cannot find a more talented, dedicated, personable, and hard-working photographer in DFW than right here with Opal & Onyx. Bailey was so patient and kind with my husband and I – she helped us figure out the best ways to get all the photos (both candid and posed) that felt so genuine to us as a couple. With her process and assistance, Bailey was able to capture the most beautiful engagement and wedding photos that were so reflective of my husband and I’s relationship. Her editing style is so beautiful, natural and vibrant. She even assisted with the wedding timeline to make sure we had plenty of hours with daylight to get the best wedding photos. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to make our special day so perfect. Thank you so much Bailey!

Bailey created the PERFECT experience for my fiancé and I. Not only was she willing to fly up to Colorado from Texas and work in places she had never been to, but she also absolutely killed it in finding the perfect nooks and quiet places that reflected our wants for the best engagement photos. She cheered us on when we stood in freezing cold Rocky Mountain river water and was very speedy at taking those photos, too (which was really nice considering how cold it was!) Plus, the photos came out looking AMAZING!! She was very fun to work with, and made us laugh a whole lot (you can see on her blog that I'm telling the truth!) I never felt 'staged' but she had ideas for how to capture my fiancé and I in our element that showed our love for adventure AND each other. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer!

Bailey is the absolute BEST. When I first met her, I felt like I had known her for years. Wedding planning is stressful but Bailey is organized and she has all the details down so that you don’t have to worry about your wedding photography. She is fun, creative, and has such a pure soul. She truly goes above and beyond and loves what she does. She creates beautiful, timeless images and you can see her passion in every photo. I just love Bailey and could go on and on about how wonderful she is! I can’t wait for future sessions with her.

Bailey is hands down the most genuine, caring, and professional person I have ever met. I would book her all over again in a heartbeat. She not only is an excellent photographer, but she is also supportive and like a friend on your big day. She helped me with bouquet malfunctions, when my veil broke, and even helped me button my sleeves on my dress. She knows the poses and settings you want to see and I trusted her creative mind the entire time. She wants the bride and groom to have a perfect day and she makes that possible. Everyone has been so impressed with our photos from the wedding! My engagement photos were also amazing. I am so, so, so thankful we were able to have her as our photographer for such an important day. You NEED a photographer like Bailey for your special day. I highly recommend for her talent, skills, and wedding expertise.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! I absolutely LOVE Bailey! I’m a perfectionist, so this wedding was extra hard on me. The wedding was crazy! It had so many ups and downs and details that weren’t absolutely perfect (to me), but somehow it was the best day of my life! Bailey calmed me down when she saw me stressing, took care of me and brought me back down to earth several times. She is a god send! Bailey was my FAVORITE vendor! She captured my wedding exactly how I wanted to see it (Which is very hard to do)! I don’t know how she got in my head and soul, but so glad she did! She will be my forever photographer, and I’m so grateful and blessed that I had her with me on my big day! The second photographer she brought was absolutely incredible with getting the guys to behave! They loved her!! (Sorry if they were crazy!) I didn’t get to spend much time with her, but they kept telling me how “cool” she was! Bailey, you are so talented and such a beautiful person inside and out! Thank you for being my photographer! Can’t wait for the next photo shoot!

Nearly a year later and I’m still SO OBSESSED with the wedding and engagement photos Bailey took for us. She truly is the jackpot, as far as photographers go. Working with her was so easy - I never once felt “posed” or awkward. She has this magical way of capturing perfect moments. To me, her work beautifully captures not just the faces of her clients, but a bit of their souls as well. I love the life and realness in her work. Would highly recommend booking her for your very own dreamy photos to keep forever!
