I cannot say enough good things about Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey. We worked with Mark and Gary on our wedding day. From the first time I emailed them to today, still working out our album details, I have been very pleased with their customer service and responsiveness. Darcy has answered questions from photographer to timeline to recommendations about other vendors. Mark and Rodney were so personable during our selection process (they even offered a skype meeting since we live out of town!) and we knew immediately that was the vibe we wanted on our day. From the moment Mark showed up at our hotel while we were getting ready, I felt calm. He and Gary's casual demeanor and humor really made the day special, and their confidence put me at ease. They even convinced me to go to the ladies' room right before the ceremony! And it was good advice!! We recently got our photos and they were even more beautiful than we expected - and there was a HUGE quantity of them!! I made photography a priority when I was selecting vendors; I'm glad I did, and Rodney & Co was absolutely worth every single penny. Seriously. Go email them right now.

We loved working with Rodney Bailey & Associates for our engagement and wedding photography. Tabatha was our photographer. She is friendly, talented, professional, and so easy to work with. Their style of getting posed photos done quickly so you can enjoy your day is exactly what we wanted. Leading up to the day, Rodney and Darcy very thorough in ensuring things were coordinated in advance so we didn't have to worry about anything. I am so happy we chose them!

Rodney Bailey and his studio were great to work with throughout the wedding process. They are organized, effective communicators and simply warm, nice people to work with. Mark B was our lead photographer and he was fantastic! Mark was very easy to work with throughout the day, laid back and fit into our wedding group perfectly. Mark’s ability to capture emotion in a photograph is unlike any I have seen. In looking at each of photographs, especially those taken during our wedding homily and reception speeches, I can so vividly remember how I felt. There were a couple points throughout the day that Mark gave me a sneak peak of the photographs on his camera. His passion shown through during those moments where he couldn’t wait to show us how great the photos were turning out.

Our wedding photographs are beautiful. They are clean, crisp, and full of emotion and truly tell the story of our wedding day. We invested a little more than expected to have Rodney Bailey and Mark be our wedding photographers but the investment was well worth it. I know my husband, family and friends will be enjoying the photographs, and reliving the day over and over again, for many years to come.

Rodney was my lead photographer and Gary also assisted on the day of the wedding. I could not be more thankful and happy with the quality of pictures that they captured on our wedding day...we absolutely love the pictures and they are stunning! The level of service we received was incredible, they even managed to get a backdrop stand for us to use the day of the event. They went above and beyond and took the most beautiful pictures I could have dreamed of. I didn't realize how many moments he was capturing during the event until seeing our wedding album. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

My husband and I feel very lucky to have worked with Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey. Rodney and Darcy were incredibly helpful and professional the whole time, from our engagement shoot through finalizing our wedding album. We had a great engagement shoot with Rodney; he is calm and fun to work with, creative in coming up with shot ideas, and extremely talented in making the pictures beautiful. Rodney did an amazing job at documenting our wedding day; I don't think better pictures could have been possible. Rodney is a pleasure to be around and makes taking all the pictures fun and easy. We were thrilled with the whole experience and recommend their team without hesitation.

We recently had our wedding at the Hay-Adams hotel and we were VERY happy with how everything turned out with Rodney Bailey Photography.

The RB style is "photojournalism" photography, so they tend to keep out of the way and capture candid moments throughout the event, making sure to grab those iconic shots when available.

Our specific photographer was Tabitha, assisted by Stephanie, and she did a fantastic job. She made us feel very comfortable and brought a lot of knowledge of the venue to make sure she got the perfect shots.

We enjoyed working with Tabitha so much leading up to the wedding that we also booked her for a related family ceremony the day before. That day included a lot of posed photos, and while it wasn't really their specialty, Tabitha was more than happy to oblige the family's needs.

The only other note is that RB has a high price tag, but it's absolutely worth it if you want to make a quality investment in your wedding photos.

We hired Rodney Bailey for our engagement photos and wedding pictures. Our primary photographer, Tabatha, was excellent! At our first meeting, we met with Rodney and Tabatha to discuss our vision and learn about their technique. It was a great opportunity to see their work and ask questions we didn't submit online. It was an easy conversation and made our decision to hire them very easy.

Tabatha was excellent to work with both at our engagement session and on our wedding day. She had creative poses that didn't feel unnatural and turned out great in our finished pictures. She was prompt to every appointment we scheduled and RB made sure to have a back up plan should the weather become inclement.

My only issue I had working with this company is that our engagement session was included but we had to pay for our images on top of the package we already purchased. This could be a case of me not reading the fine print but that was the only surprise in the entire process. The cost of our package was quite expensive but the finished product was well worth the money and it's memories that will last a lifetime. I absolutely recommend this vendor to anyone who is looking for a professional photographer - not just for weddings!

We had Tabatha from Rodney Bailey & Assoc be our photographer at our wedding and she was just amazing! We got a free engagement session because friends of ours recommended them from their own wedding and it made a really be difference not only to get to meet Tabatha ahead of time, but to also see the incredible work she does. We were so happy to see her on the day of and knew that we were in good hands. Planning and communicating with Rodney ahead of time was really easy and he was always prompt at responding. Tabatha really made us feel so special and was everywhere she needed to be throughout the night (without feeling like we were being stalked!). I can't wait to see the photos when we get them back!

I haven't received the pictures from my wedding yet. However, I really, really liked Tabatha and I am sure they will be amazing. She did our engagement shoot and those pictures were so good. They were made into the guest book for our wedding and everyone loved it. The engagement photos are so nice that we are purchasing all the digital images. Tabatha is really good at putting you at ease and we just really liked her. I will update the review when I receive the wedding images.
