Portraits

Montgomery Wedding Photography specializes in engagement, bridal and day after “Trash the Dress” portrait sessions photographed by me, Bill Montgomery. These are fun shoots at a location of your choosing. My style is relaxed and you won’t hear me saying, “Say cheese” or “Smile.” Instead I try to work in casual shots, much like you see in a high fashion magazine, as well as a few dramatic and intimate shots. Portrait sessions start at $250 for a 2-hour shoot.



At least one portrait session is included in our standard wedding packages, so if you choose to book a wedding after we’ve done a portrait session together, you may apply the portrait session fee toward the wedding fee.

Weddings

Montgomery Wedding Photography shoots a limited number of weddings each year to ensure that we can give each client our fullest personal attention and provide the highest level of service possible.



Each wedding collection includes at least one portrait session with me plus 8-hours of wedding day coverage shot be me and an associate "second" photographer.



Most of our wedding collections are custom tailored to suit the desires of our clients starting at $1500. Ask about pricing for our beautiful custom wedding albums.



Photos

All collections include online proofing and professionally edited high-resolution digital JPG photographs with a limited copyright release to allow non-commercial printing and display.



Destinations & Travel

Montgomery Wedding Photography is based in Highland Village, Texas, a bedroom community centrally located between the cities of Dallas, Fort Worth, and Denton. Most of our weddings are within this area, but we love to travel so ask about our travel and destination packages for commissions outside of the DFW metroplex.



Terms & Conditions

Portrait session fees are payable upon booking. A 50% deposit is required at booking to reserve your wedding date and the remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the event.

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, High Resolution Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
We love the look of natural light photography but because natural light is not always reliable, we are expert in utilizing on-camera flashguns and off-camera strobe lights. With these lights we can create general fill light for better quality group shots, dramatic lighting for portraits, and can even simulate natural sunlight streaming through a window.
Is your media preference film or digital?
We came up during the film era and Bill Montgomery put himself through college working in a professional photo lab and darkroom. We even keep a couple film camera bodies on hand. Nevertheless, we work exclusively with digital because today digital is faster, more technically accurate and costs much less to work with than film. Furthermore, digital images can be processed in the digital darkroom (i.e. Photoshop) to emulate the look of various film emulsions, if that is what you want.
How many photographers do you work with?
Bill Montgomery is Montgomery Wedding Photography's principal photographer and personally lead the photography for every event and photo shoot we undertake. Weddings will also be covered by one or more associate "second" photographers.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Bill Montgomery will be present at every event and photo shoot unless he is unable to do so due to illness, injury or other causes beyond his control.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We do not book more than one event per day and nor do we book weddings on back-to-back days. We want our clients to know that they have our full attention. Additionally, being on your feet for six to eight hours while you are lugging heavy equipment around and angling for shots -- all done with 10 lbs. of camera and lens slung around your neck -- is physically exhausting. It is not fair to clients for us to book jobs at times when we know that we will already be worn out.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
In the event that Bill Montgomery cannot perform due to illness, injury, or any other cause beyond his control, we will provide an alternate skilled and experienced wedding photographer.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We bring two or more digital SLR bodies, flashguns, half-a-dozen lenses, light stands, light modifiers, other accessories, and lots and lots of batteries. We will also bring studio strobes, backgrounds, ladders, etc. if requested.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Absolutely. We bring backups for everything and for most critical items we have backups for our backups.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
We charge our weddings by the full day.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We ask that our clients provide a meal at the time that the bride and groom are eating. If a meal is not or cannot be provide, we will have to leave the event to get something to eat and we might miss something important. We ask that we be fed while the bride and groom are eating because they won't want to be photographed while they are eating.
Do you charge for travel?
Travel fees are calculated at a rate of $1.00 per mile (one way) for events more than 30 miles from the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Distant weddings which require an over-night stay will have an additional hotel/meals fee totaling $150 USD per night.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Our contract promises that final images will be delivered within 120 days, but that number is padded to account for seasonality and to allow for unforeseen events that could create delays. In practice it is typically 30-45 days. We do all of our post processing in-house.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
We put the proofs online.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
We provide Home Use copyright release to our clients that allows them to use the photos for any non-comercial purpose. This means that they are free to make prints or albums and can share the files electronically with family and friends by email, Facebook, etc. The only restriction is that they cannot sell the photos or use them for advertising without written permission from Montgomery Wedding Photography.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
We retain the right to use the photos to market our business, such as displaying them on our website.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
We provide high-resolution JPEG digital files to our clients.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes
What kind of albums do you offer?
Montgomery Wedding Photography designs beautiful custom wedding albums that are printed and bound by Leather Craftsmen. Our albums are stunning remembrances of your wedding day that you will cherish for the rest of your lives. Your album, built from elegant archival quality materials, will be an important keepsake for your family for many generations. Leather Craftsmen has been producing top quality wedding albums more than 70 years.

Bill and his wife were wonderful! They kept in touch frequently before the wedding, making sure they knew exactly what I wanted. They went out of their way to come and meet my bridal party at Ulta to take pictures of us getting ready there and were very professional and discreet during the ceremony and reception. They made everything effortless! I can't wait to put up the pictures all over my house! We can't thank you enough!

We had such a good time with Bill and Karen on our engagement shoot and they made our wedding very special. Their photos made me feel pretty. Many times since our wedding we have stayed up late at night watching a slideshow of the photos. We love them, every single one of them. We appreciate everything Bill and Karen did for us.
