Dallas Wedding Photographer // Ryan O'Dowd

What to expect from me

When you choose a photographer you aren’t just finding someone to snap pictures, you are inviting someone to capture memories, emotions, and personality. You are making an investment in photographs that will be viewed and shared for years and generations to come. As a photographer, I value your family, value your investment, and value the quality of the work I produce. Because of this, I want to make sure your experience is rewarding and your pictures are stunning. From the quality of the service, to the quality of equipment, to the quality of the printing, I want you to have the best because I am truly passionate about creating stunning images for my clients.


your investment in your pictures


Wedding photography is such a big yet personal decision. You aren’t just looking for a photographer that uses good equipment…you are finding a person that you can trust to capture your wedding. Price, personality, quality, and demeanor all go into that decision. So I would love to send you my pricing guide and more information about my packages.

In the meantime, to get a general idea of my pricing: all of my wedding collections include 2 photographers, a full day of coverage, and 500+ digitals with reprint release. My collections begin at $3500 for Saturday weddings.

Answering some common questions


Where are you located?
We are based out of McKinney, but we shoot all around the Dallas & Fort Worth area. The options are endless. We will help you select a location that fits with your style and your vision for the session.

Do you back up the images…How can I assure my images are protected in case of computer or equipment malfunction?
Technology is a beautiful and scary thing…and because of this I am a little bit crazy when it comes to protecting your images because I was to make sure these pictures end up in your hands. The images taken at the wedding are immediately backed up onto a backup card in the camera (it records on 2 cards). When I return to my studio, the images are downloaded onto my computer, then backed up onto two external hard drives.

What about equipment, do you have backups if something breaks?
Absolutely! I actually have a holster belt that holds 2 cameras. That way if a camera goes out at a vital moment, I grab the other camera from my hip and just keep shooting. No need to run to my bag or delay anything. In addition, I carry backup cards & batteries on me for the same reason.  

What kind of equipment do you use
We use Canon Professional DSLR cameras. More specifically
Canon 5diii
Canon 6d
Canon 7d
Canon 5d
Canon 24-70L ii
Canon 70-200L is ii
Canon 50mm
Canon 85mm
Canon 15mm
Sigma Art 35mm

How long until we get the pictures back?
My average turnaround time is to have you wedding pictures in the mail 3-5 weeks after the wedding.

What is your editing process?

All the photos you receive will be edited in a consistent style for color, contrast, white balance, saturation, and exposure. My aim is to edit photos so they reflect the mood & look of the wedding.

I am ready to book, what is the deposit to hold the date?

Upon signing the contract, there is a 33% deposit to secure your date. If I haven’t already sent you a contract, head on over to the contact page and shoot me an email 🙂
