Non-traditional weddings + Elopements by Dallas

Weddings and elopements are my jam! We are wedding and elopement photographers in red deer and destination all around the world . Once upon a time we all lived in a small cabin on the edge of town. There were wedding and elopements every other day, but alas no one to shoot them. So one day long ago they all got together and played volleyball. WWWWW. therefore they found that the best wedding and elopement photographer was dallas olga photography. They did destination and backpacker elopements.

so I have to talk more about the couples I get to meet. once upon a time there was 2 photographer, they both loved weddings and love. they got to travel the world photographing couples everywhere. They were friends and vacationed all the time while shooting weddings world wide. Dallas loved Thailand, costa Rica, Mexico, Bali, Thailand, Australia, Canada, Banff, Canmore, Halifax, Texas, long island, Florida and everywhere else, You can see it all here W. I want to go to bed, since its like 1am and I have to renovate tomorrow, but I still want to finish this silly website SEO optimization. I need to write 300 words and then make them small.

Why you should have me as your wedding photographer

Alot of people don’t consider the value of their photographer, until the day has come & gone & all your left with are the memories captured

I've Heard It All

"We didn't think photos were really important"
"We couldn't afford a good photographer"
"I just never really thought about it"

I've had so many people who didn't invest in their photographer tell me years later "I wish we would have gotten better photos, or photos of my mom, grandparents, the ones that really matter. These are all we have left"

Its heart breaking to see moments lost forever. From hearing these things I can tell you what I have done. I PUSH, PUSH,PUSH the importance of photos on people. You don’t have to hire me (although you should) But PLEASE before you book anyone, see an ENTIRE gallery. Don’t look at the 3 best photos they have on their website. Ask for an ENTIRE wedding day gallery. These photos ARE important, if your photographer doesn’t see the value of your day, your friends and your family, I fear you will have moments & treasured memories missed, never to be gazed on again.

These are the only physical memory you'll have left from your wedding day, and once that day is gone, there is no creating that moment again.
Also get to know your photographer, they'll be with you ALL DAY, you should truly be FRIENDS with them! They should know you well enough to know what's going to be important to capture, what's special about your relationship, what will calm you down & what will make you laugh!

TALK TO ME

All I ask from my clients is that you just be yourselves, have fun with your friends, and at the end of the night when the sun is setting lets you 2 and I go out for a little slip away and get those relaxed " WOW that day went fast & I love you so freaking much" shots.

TESTIMONIALS

Ashlee + Richard

Dallas makes sure you're laughing the entire time. Possibly saying some naughty things but that makes the laughs in the pictures real. And you can tell.
She's up for anything and anywhere. She drove 2 hours to the middle of nowhere stupid early in the morning, hiked hills, took pictures in McDonald's and accompanied us to a tattoo parlor. If you have an idea she's going to do it. But she also will have a few that will keep you on your toes.
I definitely recommend her.

Ashley + Danny

Wouldn't use anyone else!
My family has done family, engagement, and even had the privilege of having Dallas at our Ontario wedding.
She is an absolute blast to work with, and can make the experience feel completely natural.
I haven't had the chance to meet the rest of her team, but if they share the energy and talent that Dallas Olga Photography has offered us in the past you wont be disappointed!

Jasmine + Randy

A ton of fun, and the photos are excellent!
Dallas has an energy that is immediately contagious. She immediately makes you feel comfortable to be yourself, and her excitement about her work translates into beautiful photos that capture the emotions and essence of her clients. I have had the pleasure to work with her at both my own wedding and that of a close friend, and cannot recommend her enough. Her prices are great, her speed is insane, and the end product will get compliments from anyone who sees them.

Paige + Dave

Amazing!! Great personality and quality
I knew Dallas when she started out as a photographer and I am SO happy we booked her for our wedding! Not only did she help us with our scheduling and answer all and any questions she even gave us tips and helped organize family for photos. Her best quality is that she is FUN, laid back and made the whole experience a breeze! No one was ever just standing around waiting to be told where to go or where to stand she was ON TOP of it!! She also captured in the moment photos that no other photographer would have gotten! I can’t recommend her enough she truly captured us as a couple and family! 110% recommend! So fast and they were perfect quality the editing was exceptional. Thank you again Dallas

Keaton + Renae

Outstanding!
We had a phenomenal experience with Dallas. She was awesome with her communication and everything went smoothly. She had a real gift with getting guests and family involved in photos for some beautiful candid shots. She made our wedding photos seem like fun rather than a chore and come up some really unique ideas. She was extremely fast with editing for both photos and video which was impressive. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Darby + Kris

My wife and I did both our engagement, as well as our wedding photos with her and both times it was just a phenomenal experience. Dallas is a high energy, high efficiency, incredibly talented photographer, but more than that she is just a wicked good time. Incredibly fun to work with, she made all of our ideas look perfect, added her own suggestions, all the while making the time between shots low stress and really fun. The VW microbus photo booth was a totally unique, and massive success with our guests during the wedding, not to mention after the event our photos were edited and ready for us in record time. If you’re looking for a fun, high energy, admittedly a tiny bit weird photographer, then I cannot recommend Dallas enough. It was an amazing time and I definitely would do it again.

-Ariana + Brett

Dallas is truly one of the coolest people I have ever met. She’s so fun to be around and I love her style of photography. My husband and I booked our wedding on a Friday this year just so we could get Dallas, as her Saturdays were completely booked up. She’s so bubbly and has the coolest ideas for photos , our entire wedding crowd had such a blast with her and I have received numerous compliments on how phenomenal Dallas was the day of as well as all of the photos we received back. We were a bit nervous to be photographed, but she made everything feel so natural. When we received our wedding photos back from Dallas , we were and forever will be reminded of all the emotions we felt that day. Both Dallas & Brittany are so good at capturing the real life moments and those are the photos that mean to most! We also used Trixie the mobile photo booth bus for our guests to capture photos in and it was such a blast. I absolutely recommend Dallas , Brittany & Trixie. We couldn’t be more pleased with the experience and photos we received!

Stephanie + Jordon

I am so happy with how many beautiful pictures we have and what an amazing day it was!! Definitely worth booking with her!

Brit + Brady

The best human/photographer and now friend

Dallas made all of our dreams come true. I would Highly Recommend her. Her talent is amazing, but you don’t just get a talented photographer. You get someone who genuinely cares. Love love love Dallas!!

Brittney + Adam

Excellent high energy woman that will capture the beauty of every moment in a snap. Easy to work with, talk to and bounce ideas off of. If you have any specific ideas, she will make it happen. If you want beauty and elegance you've got it! If you want wild and shoes off crazy, (bring it). This lovely lady will make all of it come to life through her photos.

Becky + Jesse

Dallas was an absolute dream to deal with! From initial messaging to meetings to the day of the wedding, she was accommodating, creative, and FUN! I have had countless compliments on our photos and could not be happier with all of the images as well. Would highly recommend her!!

Jack + Dustin

I rearranged my trip from California just so that I could have Dallas photograph my husband and I for our First Year Wedding Anniversary as she traveled across Canada and we celebrated to eat some amazing food in Quebec City. Her upbeat personality and easy going-ness kept our spirits up. I personally love all the intricate in-between moments she is so great at capturing. My husband and I can't begin to express our appreciation for documenting this moment for us as we celebrated our first 365 days as Mr. and Mrs. If you are thinking about doing any type of photographs with Dallas, you will not be disappointed in hiring her. I loved how she made us so comfortable to push us out of our comfort zone because when you trust in the moment of what your photographer sees, that photo will be so worth it!

QUESTION

ANSWER

How much do you charge?

Elopement & Intimate Weddings are 2800
&
Full Weddings start at 4300.

These are always all unlimited and include engagements

What happens if you are sick?

I've never missed a wedding & it would have to be something out of my control, but in this case I would do my best to help find a replacement photographer to take my place that I trust with a similar style, although I’m not legally held to do so. If I can’t make it to your wedding your money will be refunded.

Do you charge Travel fees?

For local weddings, Travel is included within 500km
For anything that a flight is required you pay for the bare minimum (flight, transportation, stay) and I cover the rest. I’m also open to staying with you, your family or even camping with you to help save you $$$. And if it works out on both ends I’m also more than happy to get picked up and dropped off at the airport to save on paying for a rental car!

For booking, I book flights and rental car on my own (you can book my stay if you’d like, but I am firm on booking my own flights + transportation). I make sure to get your confirmation on logistics + price before booking anything to ensure there are no surprise costs on your end! Once booked, the payment for them is due within one week of receiving your invoice.

100% YES! we will do a wedding consultation, I have vendors in the area that I've worked with & have a TON of tips, after a couple hundred weddings, I have a few!

I'm now limiting myself to 15. I do this so I can give my couples the best experience and photos possible and not spread myself thin. I focus on quality, not quantity.
