We really could not have been more pleased with our wedding photos and the overall experience provided by Becky Beckingham. She completely captured our wedding day and our personalities in a beautiful collection of posed and candid photographs.
To begin with, she visited our venue and some other nearby sites a few days ahead of time so she was full of ideas for poses, backgrounds and camera angles. At Becky’s advice, my husband and I did a photo shoot two days before our wedding. What a brilliant idea! I cannot begin to express what a weight this took off our shoulders on our wedding day. We were able to visit several locations and never felt pressed for time. The photo shoot also served as a trial run for my hair and makeup and the opportunity to spend some time in a dress, undergarments and shoes that I had never worn. It was great to be sure that everything was going to fit properly and stay in place.
The day of our wedding, Becky was waiting for us at the venue. As I was getting ready, she captured all the classic and important moments, and also took a bunch of photos of my dress, shoes, bouquet, jewelry, and hand-written vows.
Looking through the photos of our ceremony, I am amazed that Becky was able to get such great shots while staying totally inconspicuous. Honestly, I’m not even sure where she was hiding, but I am happy to say that the simple beauty of our outdoor ceremony was not tainted by an obnoxious photographer standing two feet from us, snapping pictures while we promised each other our everlasting love.
Following the ceremony, we breezed through the list of family photos that Becky had asked us to prepare ahead of time. She arranged the succession of these pictures very efficiently so that we didn’t have to keep our guests waiting too long for us to join the reception.
In addition to the photos of the champagne toast, cake cutting, and signing of the marriage license, Becky went above and beyond our expectations during our reception. I couldn’t believe the how many photos she took of our guests, many of which we passed along to friends to and family members who were very thankful to have an updated professional family photo.
I was absolutely blown away by the quantity and quality of our wedding photos. I truly could not have hoped for anything more. I’ve heard other married couples complain about what a chore it was to muddle to through an hour or more of disorganized group photos on the day of their wedding. I feel so blessed to say that every aspect of our wedding photography experience was fun and relaxing. The personalized and professional service we received was second-to-none. I wholeheartedly recommend Becky Beckingham to any couple looking for a wedding photographer to capture the essence of that very special day.

Becky was the perfect photographer for us from the very beginning. She was warm, easy going, flexible while we were planning our wedding day. She met with us ahead of time, listened to our expectations, but most importantly, quickly picked up on our personalities. John is a quiet, shy man who was very camera-shy and stiff. Sensing this, Becky suggested we meet the day before the wedding and take our ‘couple’ pictures without the stress of getting ready for our guests and fretting about time schedules. She eased John into the photo mood without him even realizing it. Becky started with some fun, casual moments, allowing John and I to laugh and begin to relax. Then, she had me take some solo shots, all the while, keeping an eye on John standing nearby. She would take views beyond me, of him, while he was enjoying watching my poses. These ended up my favorite adoring pictures of him. As we wandered to the next site, the-always-ready-Becky was taking nonintrusive pictures as we talked, walked and played together. These photos captured our excitement and anticipation of our upcoming day. She would see the light coming through the trees, the shadows of our silhouettes, the fleeting kiss John would place on my shoulder and seize the photo moment.
I would highly recommend taking the photo opportunity the day before. This allowed us to make sure we had our time, totally dedicated to the two of us. No matter what happened the day of our wedding, we were already at peace knowing our pictures were complete, the rest were bonus.
Then on our big day, Becky spent time capturing the excitement of us getting ready for each other. She cleverly took pictures of our heirloom jewelry blended with our funky cowboy boots before we even put them on!!!
John and I chose an outdoor wedding site to reflect our love of nature. We really didn’t want to have the distraction of a photographer disrupting this serenity. Becky’s graceful movements allowed us to share our vows without ever feeling her presence. She had thought out where she would be shooting long before the ceremony so we never noticed her. Yet, she caught the moments of tears, the quick glimpses we gave each other, the finger tip touches. Now, I can reflect on this day through her pictures and quickly feel those emotions.
Following our emotional ceremony, the boots came out, BBQ was eaten, and the dance began. Becky moved through our family pictures with ease, mixing them right into the fun of the afternoon. At the end of the day, John and I hugged Becky, knowing only because of her, would we have a lifetime to relive this day. Her views of our day were exactly as I had felt them. She did an incredible job of sensing our love and magically preserved it forever. I can’t thank you enough Becky.
Thank you so much for the amazing photos you took of our family! The photos turned out beautiful! You could definitely see that much planning was put into where, and types of photos you intended to take of our family. We also appreciate the professionalism you put forth in your business. I couldn’t wait to see the photos, and you provided them to us very quickly. The offer to put an order in for a shutterfly book of our photos was a great way to show our photos and be able to share them with our family. I definitely would not have had the time to put the book together and order it myself. We also appreciate the patience you had working with my crazy family, and organizing us for the photos. All in all it was a great experience getting our family photos done through you, and would highly recommend anyone for your photography service.
Thank you very much, Lisa and Justin Marie

Becky is a true professional, artist, and creator. We had our pictures taken on Monday and the turned out phenomenal. She is easy to work with and was able to corral my ADHD Keith kids into great poses. I wish she lived in Dallas.

Becky did a wonderful job! She took control of the shoot and directed my children (5 and under) where to go and what to do, they loved her! Our pictures look amazing and I’m so excited to hang them on the wall! We’ll definitely be using Becky Beckingham Photography again! Thank you!
