Alycia Rife Photography

Buckle up, guys, because you’re about to be blown away by Alycia’s photos. We have been big fans of her work for years now and she comes highly recommended by our brides; her word-of-mouth reputation is beyond stellar. We love her natural, but just-a-tad-dusty editing style that keeps your pictures moody yet timeless!

Becca Louise Photo

So we feel super bad that it’s taken us three posts to give a shoutout to Miss Becca. Not only is she a FAB photographer, but she’s also a DG bride! So she really gets it, ya know? We have loved collaborating with her recently on a multitude of styled photoshoots; her creative and artistic viewpoint really shows in her couples’ wedding galleries. She keeps her editing bright and natural with just a hint of moodiness – the perfect combination.

Jubilee Opal Photography

Holy smokeshow! Every time we’ve received a bride’s gallery from Jubilee Opal, we’ve been blown away. Not only does she always deliver a ton of images, but she also has a great way of capturing her couple’s natural happiness. We love her combination of earthy edits and black-and-white beauties; definitely check her out!

Kara Smith Photography

If you’re ready to have the dreamiest, most ethereal wedding photos in the game, then you need to go talk to Kara. She has a unique vision when it comes to her galleries and we’re loving her editing recently. It’s a great combination of timeless and light along with a undertone of moodiness and emotion that we love. Some of our favorite brides have RAVED about Kara, so she should definitely be on your list!

Joshua Ayres Photography

If you’re a bride looking for more traditional wedding photos, we definitely recommend Joshua. His classic editing and posing make for gorgeous, timeless photos that will stand the test of time. We love his attention to detail and how he manages to capture every smile!

Sincerely T Photography

Let us introduce you to another DG bride/photographer we love! Tonya is an absolute fabulous human being and a serious hustler man. Not only is she a wife & Momma, but she’s also a multi-business entrepreneur! She runs Ciao Nail Salon (across the street from us in Delano!) along with her own photography business. We love her romantic, dreamy style of editing.

Gentle Rayne Photography

Time to introduce y’all to Jess, one of the coolest and edgiest photographers in the game. We were introduced during a styled workshop and ever since, we’ve been big fans. She takes moody portraits to a whole new level while still highlighting the natural beauty of the day. We think her detail shots are UNREAL – she won’t miss anything on your big day!

Sublett Studios

If you’re looking for a photographer with hundreds of hours under her belt, plenty of weddings, and an editing style she’s perfected, then check out Sublett Studios. She has been one of the most consistent wedding photographers in Wichita for ages and there’s a reason her reputation is so good; she knows her way around a camera. We love that she lets the natural beauty of the day shine and keeps her editing bright, light, and minimal.

R & B Photography

We love a good photography duo – it’s a guaranteed way to make sure you have a second shooter at your event PLUS two sets of eyes capturing important moments is always better than one. Briley and Rylee are a fabulous combo that we’ve heard GREAT things about; they’re relatively new to the Wichita photography scene, but we can tell they’re not going ANYWHERE.

Emona Hennen Photography

Rounding out this list is one of our long-time favorite wedding photographers, Emona Hennen! She is a natural at capturing at couples in their element, totally happy and relaxed. Her galleries are full of natural poses, bubbly personalities, and tons of gorgeous photos. We think her golden hour photos are some of the best in biz!

But now’s the time to highlight ten more FABULOUS photographers to use for your wedding photos! Whose work do you absolutely love? Let us know in the comments or on Facebook!

Brianna Huynh Photography

Brianna is one of the sweetest photographers we’ve ever worked with. Our working relationship with her is new, but every time we’ve seen a gallery from her, we fall head-over-heels in love. Her bright and airy shooting style totally captures the love between her couples and we think she shines with natural, organic backgrounds. We love how often she second shoots with other photographers in town, too, which means you’re guaranteed to get the best shots when Brianna is on your team!

Native Roaming

Daedra from Native Roaming is another one of our newest connections in the industry and we. are. obsessed. She popped in one day to introduce herself and ended up hanging out in store for almost an hour – she’s that chill! Daedra would be the ultimate friend to shoot your wedding and we love her natural, organic vision. She has the gorgeous, dusty outdoor photos of your dreams DOWN.

Her thoughtfulness for everyone involved to make a big day perfect is truly unique. She’s one of the best for sure!

Mak is upbeat, fun, and totally down-to-earth; she’s the perfect person to have by your side on your wedding day!

Erin King Photography

Don’t be like us and sleep on Erin, fam, because this girl is good. We were recently sent a bride’s gallery from Erin and oh my goodness, we all lost our minds. Not only was the bride a smokeshow, but Erin’s natural artistic eye created unique, emotive photos. Her gallery was a combination of traditional, romantic, upbeat, and sexy – a whirlwind of emotions in the absolute best way.

Part One of an ongoing series!

One of the best parts about being in the bridal industry is the comraderie that comes between vendors. It takes a village to pull off a wedding – and when you have good vendors on your side, it makes everything so much easier. Because bridal consultants participate so early in the process and we’re not there on wedding day, we rely heavily on the photographers and their gorgeous photos. We’ve become fast friends with many photographers in the area – and we wanted to show them some love! If you’re in the process of looking for a photographer for your wedding day, here are 10 tried-and-true professionals guaranteed to make your wedding day look the absolute best!

(Part One of this series is focused on Wichita-based photographers. Upcoming blogs will feature more Wichitans, the Midwest & beyond. Keep on the lookout for more & let us know your favorites!)

How much do we love Shelby? Let us count the ways…there’s too many! Shelby Laine is our official photographer here at Dress Gallery, which means that almost all of our gorgeous content comes from her lens. We are so thankful to have found her – she’s one of the most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet. Shelby makes a great wedding photographer for a ton of reasons, but the fact that she has a team of great assistants behind her, a super quick turnaround time, and a gorgeous aesthetic are the tip of the iceberg. Shelby is perfect for all types of couples – whether you want an edgy vibe or something more classic, Shelby’s team can do it all. Her modern moody vibe is perfect for anyone wanting an air of edge to their photos.
