Questions & Answers
Q: How long have you been a photographer?
A: For 10+ years! My passion started with joining the high school yearbook team and since then, photography has always been a constant in my life. I attended Texas State University's Fine Art Photography program and worked as a product photographer and owned a creative business once I graduated. I started specializing in weddings and couples in 2016 and it has been the best decision I've ever made!
Q: How many weddings have you photographed?
A: I've photographed over 100+ weddings and clients as the lead photographer. And since there's only 52 weekends in a year, my weekends have been basically filled with love stories and celebrations since I started! I only take a limited number of weddings per year so that I can truly focus on each couple and give them the experience they deserve.
Q: What kind of equipment do you use?
A: This might start getting a bit technical, but I personally use a Canon R6 and 5DIV with prime lenses and zoom lenses. Both are on me throughout your wedding day so I never have to worry about changing lenses, switching memory cards, or changing batteries during key moments. Every moment matters - and this is where the years of experience really kicks in.
Q: Do you offer any albums, prints, canvases, guest books, etc?
A: Totally! But I want you feeling 1,000% comfortable and excited about the quality of your photographs before placing orders on those. That way, you only order exactly what you want, when you want, and when you know with confidence that they are going to look amazing on your walls and in your fine art heirloom albums. And all of this is done & ordered right through your online gallery!
Q: Do you offer payment plans?
A: Yes, I do! Traditional payments are a 25% nonrefundable retainer due at the time of booking (within a week) and the remainder of the final payment is due 30 days prior to your wedding day. If you wanted to do the alternate payment plan, I can stretch it into equal 1/4's if that works best for you. (25% due at contract signing and 3 payments of 25% due in between with the last payment due 30 days prior to your wedding date.) Just let me know what you prefer, and I will make it happen. It's that easy.
Q: God forbid, what happens if you aren't able to make it to our big day?
A: In the unlikely event that I am too ill, injured, COVID positive, or if there's some other emergency, I have a list of trusted colleagues that I can call on to replace me that have similar styles of photography. I would still edit your photos so they would be in the editing style you love. I will never leave you without a photographer to capture your wedding day no matter what, so don't worry about that. You're in good hands. I promise.
Q: How many images will we receive from our wedding?
A: I guarantee 50 images per hour and generally deliver between 500-700 high resolution images for a typical 8 hour wedding day. I have personally found that delivering more than 700 images can be overwhelming, so you won't receive any duplicates or unusable photos (blinking, blurry, etc.) With that said, if I feel there are more images that tell your love story, I will absolutely include them in your gallery. :)
Q: Are you a licensed and insured business?
A: Of course! Your wedding day is extremely important to me so that means no cut corners on my end. I am more than happy to provide a copy of my liability insurance if your venue requests it.
Q: Do you have a list of preferred vendors you love to work with?
A: I sure do! From wedding coordinators to florists and makeup artists, I have worked with some of the best wedding vendors in Dallas/Fort Worth and would be happy to share their information with you. Speaking from experience, your wedding vendor team greatly affects the success of your wedding day so make sure to book vendors who fit your style and personality and that have 5 star reviews.
Q: How do I book you for my wedding day?
A: Love that question the most! Please fill out my contact form and I will be in touch within 48 hours with more information on pricing, more answers to frequently asked questions, and additional information on my booking policies.
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.

Opal & Onyx Photography was the best wedding investment I made. All of my wedding memories (engagement session, bridal session, wedding day) are all preserved with gorgeous, fun, and high quality images I will enjoy for the rest of my life. Bailey is professional, creative, easygoing, and so fun to work with. She will make sure you get all the magic moments while keeping things laid back. Are you worried about being awkward in front of the camera? Bailey has you 100%. Any nervousness is worked out through her relaxed posing style and innate ability to put you at ease in front of the camera. Her style is clean, high end, and timeless. She was patient and kind with all of my questions and she made me feel special and beautiful anytime I stepped in front of her camera. In short, best photographer ever.

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!
"All of our family and guests loved her as much as we did!"
Alexis & Bryson
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!

Look NO FURTHER. Bailey is seriously what every couple needs on their special day. We chose Opal & Onyx amongst tons of other photography companies that were being thrown our way after seeing previews of other weddings and shots she had taken for special occasions. I got my previews back today, TWO DAYS after we got married and I am emotional just looking at them. Aside from amazing, very unique shots she takes, she makes you feel so incredibly comfortable in front of the camera. I get very nervous when getting my pictures taken and I was so calm my whole wedding day as she talked my husband and I through the whole event. Any couple would be lucky to have her shoot their special day, or any occasion for that matter. Thank you so much Opal & Onyx for giving us pictures for a lifetime!

Hailey & Austin
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.
"I would book her all over again in a heartbeat."
Savannah & JT
Bailey is the BEST EVER! She made our entire photography experience an absolute breeze, all the way from before we booked through receiving our photos just 5 short weeks after our big day! She's the ultimate professional who still has a keen eye for her art, and she took a real interest in getting to know us and what we wanted. Couldn't have been happier with both how she walked us through this process OR with the end product! Book Bailey if you're looking for a wedding or engagement photographer!
"She made our entire photography experience an absolute breeze."
McKenzie & Eston
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!
