We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all wedding photography. Your wedding is a unique celebration curated to your passion for your partner.

You’ve spent hours planning all the details – from the print of your dog on the cocktail napkins to the punny signature cocktail names to the table numbers corresponding to your favorite dates – you deserve a photographer who can capture the magic of those tiny details just as well as the big, tear-jerking moments.

Great photos don’t just show you what the moment looked like. They make you feel the moment.

Genuine photography creates genuine reactions. We want you to look at your wedding photos and have those emotions come flooding back. That’s what makes photography so special – it allows you to cherish those moments and relive them whenever you look at your wedding photos.

We’d love to help you preserve the magic of your wedding day with a beautiful collection of photos that speaks to your love story.

Preserve the magic of your wedding day with our team of 

A TruE-To-Color Style

1. Getting to know you
After filling out the contact form on our website, we’ll reach out with information about our photography collections. You can also schedule a phone consultation with us so we can get to know you better!

During your call, we’ll go over all the details: your wedding vision, what you’re looking for from a wedding photographer, and what photography packages will best suit you. Once you make a selection, we’ll send over a proposal and retainer payment schedule.

2. Save the date
We’ll hold your wedding date for up to a week from this meeting. We’re available to answer any follow-up questions you might have via email or phone.

Once you’ve signed your contract and paid the retainer, we’ll confirm that your wedding date has been reserved. You can rest assured knowing that you’ll be our one and only focus for your entire wedding day!

3. Pre-Wedding Sessions
If you choose to book an engagement or bridal session, we will go ahead and get that scheduled and completed. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to meet, get to know each other, take some awesome photo and video, all while building a lifelong friendship even past your wedding day!

4. Details
You’ll receive a questionnaire with all of the details we need to know about 3 months prior to your wedding day. If you have a shorter engagement, we’ll send everything over immediately after booking. Just fill that out and you’ll be set to go. 

5. Wedding Day
By the time your wedding day rolls around, the only thing you should be focusing on is getting married! At this point, we have all the info we need to capture your day exactly the way you’ve envisioned, and we’ll make sure to review your timeline with your other vendors so everyone is on the same page. 

6. Curation & Delivery
Over the course of your entire wedding day, we’ll take thousands of photos – and they don’t all turn out exactly as planned. Our curation process ensures you receive only the best of the best in your wedding gallery. We’ll cull through your images and edit them until they're ready for delivery.

Your wedding gallery will be delivered within 12-16 weeks. You’ll receive a link to an online gallery where you can view and share your photos, as well as order prints!

A unique approach to Florida beach wedding photography

From the moment Dalton arrived, I knew our wedding was in good hands. We didn’t have a lot of time to get detail shots, getting ready shots of the bride and the groom before we had to leave for the ceremony, but he made it HAPPEN! He captured every single moment despite the nonstop rain during an entirely outside wedding. We also didn’t have a day of coordinator or a wedding planner, and I know it wasn’t easy knowing exactly who everyone was or how the wedding was going to flow but Dalton didn’t let it show and just rolled with the punches. He got our video to us lightening fast and seriously couldn’t have done a better job. Any couple would be LUCKY to have him. The day was a blur, but thanks to Dalton I can relive it whenever I want (which is basically averaging at about every 15min right now 😂). He is very attentive and aims to please and his attention to detail is second to none. Thank you Dalton! We are forever grateful we had your talent capturing our special day! The video was everything we wanted and more!

"Any couple would be LUCKY to have him."

-Madison S.

I can’t thank Dalton enough for capturing our beautiful wedding day. He was so kind and helpful in the planning process. From beginning to end, he was extremely efficient with all of our questions and needs. Most importantly, our wedding video turned out absolutely AMAZING!! I love how he made himself effortlessly blend in at the wedding and was still able to capture every priceless moment! I cannot recommend him enough and anybody looking to hire a videographer should not hesitate. You will not regret it.

You will not regret hiring Dalton Young Films!

-Randi C.

Many couples feel they don’t need both photography and videography on their wedding day. After all, they’re basically doing the same thing, right?

No, not really. While photography and videography compliment each other, they don’t serve the same purpose after your wedding day is over.

Hiring a wedding photographer and a wedding videographer means having your cake and eating it too. It means having a team dedicated to preserving your memories instead of just one person – and this means no moment will be missed, no matter how small.

At Dalton Young Films, we’ll do just that. Our photographers and videographers aren’t just coworkers. We’re friends, and we truly love working together. When you hire photographers and videographers from the same team, you take away the extra work of coordinating timelines, processes, and space.

Our team is professional and knowledgeable – we know exactly what is needed to ensure everyone can do their job well.

Having both the stillness of photos and the motion of video gives you more ways to keep the magic of your wedding day alive in the day-to-day monotony of life.

It’s an investment that truly stands the test of time.

Do I need photography and videography services for my wedding? 

Do I need photography and videography services for my wedding? 

While you don’t truly need anything for your wedding, we’d say yes. Having both means you make absolutely certain your memories will be preserved in an authentic way. Photo and video each have their own unique advantages, and with both you truly get the best of both worlds. 

Do we need more than one photographer?

Do we need more than one photographer?

It depends on the size of your wedding party and what photos you’re looking for. Having two photographers makes things easier and faster. For example, while one photographer is with the couple getting portraits the other can be capturing guests at cocktail hour. You’ll also have two different perspectives for important moments like your ceremony and first dance. 

Where are you based and do you travel? 

Where are you based and do you travel?

Do We Get Access To All The PHotos Taken?

For photos (and video), we take a variety of creative shots throughout the day. Many are perfect, but many also may be duplicates or not perfect (yes, we are humans still).
