Tina Marie Photography is based in the Dallas area serving the suburbs and surrounding cities for your wedding day celebration. I have a high level of creativity and an eye for catching endearing and candid moments. I would love to serve you on your wedding day, catering to your wishes and vision to create beautiful photos that you can treasure and share for a lifetime. I truly care about you and your experience on your special day and will make it happen as seamlessly as possible. This day can only happen once, so let's work together to make your dreams come true.
Here are some questions you may ask, and I've included my answers for you in bold and parentheses:
Do you have a website? (I do).
Do you have social media? (I do).
Do you have reviews? (I'm new to this site, so I'm collecting and in the process of those, but I have many on my social media pages that you are welcome to review. It’s probably a good idea to cross check reviews anyway).
What do I get for this price? (You get so much with me: I edit every single photo you receive; I deliver high-resolution full-size digital photos for you to download and keep. My gallery may be shared with family and friends. My website has print offerings through a professional lab at very competitive pricing, so although the albums or photo books are not included in my price; you may create your own with the photos you wish. You are not obligated to purchase from my website since you will download the images to your computer and have the ability to print anywhere of your choosing though the pro lab on my website is very reasonable, and I don’t upcharge 200-500% like many do. I give you a photo release, so you can do as you wish with the photos. I deliver anywhere between 450-550 photos for 8-10 hours of coverage. The time spent on taking photos isn't where my job stops. I spend 4-5 times longer than the photographing portion in the editing portion of this process. Because I edit ALL photos to be delivered, I dedicate much more time to the process than many other photographers. I'm flexible and laid-back.
What is your experience level? (I have been in the business professionally for five years and added Weddings to my repertoire last, so that I could hone my skills to ultimately offer a quality service to brides and grooms. I have taken many courses over the years for DSLR photography, enrolled in webinars, follow many photography pages on social media, and search many avenues to stay up to date on my skills and technology. This is a second career for me after retiring from teaching to do this full time.
Do you work alone or have a second photographer to help? (I work alone unless you wish to have a second photographer, and then I will hire a fellow professional photographer to assist me. I have one I work with consistently. Hiring a second photographer will cause the fee to increase to cover that professional’s time at $50.00/hour, but is usually needed for only a few hours.)
Why would I need a second photographer? (A second photographer can come in handy in large weddings with many in the wedding party – say 4 or more, has the ability to take photos at different perspectives during the ceremony, covers the groom and groomsmen, while I cover the bride and bridesmaids. Some brides and grooms choose to have two photographers only during the pre-ceremony and ceremony timelines, and then just have one for the reception, saving you a little in fees. This is all up to you, and of course, your budget.)
Are you willing to work with our wishes or are you set in your way? (I will work with your wishes and offer my own expertise.)
How will you deliver the photos? (I will deliver the photos electronically, through my website, in a password protected gallery).
What is the turnaround for final product? (I will get sneak peeks to you within a few days, and the final product to you within 4 weeks.)
Do you edit the photos? (I edit every photo to be delivered to you. This is out of the industry norm, but I'm not the norm. Many photographers only edit a small percentage of the images and give you the rest in unedited form.)
What types of shots do you take? (I will take a variety of stylistic shots: traditional, candid, fun, photojournalistic to tell the day's story. Details of jewelry, shoes, flowers, tables artistically placed; dressing, make-up, first look, groom and groomsmen, bride and bridesmaids, etc., will be taken. I have a photo checklist to help with planning the shots. I also have a suggested timeline to assist you with the whole day's events.)
Finally, and if you read all this, I applaud you, you are a serious consumer – I know weddings cost a lot of money and EVERYONE has a budget no matter how low or high it is; it’s still a budget. I want to provide a quality service to brides and grooms without breaking the bank.
I would love for you to visit my website and social media pages to browse my photos and read my reviews. When in my website, visit the Portfolio wedding section to see a number of my wedding day shots.

During our initial contact, Tina went into great detail describing exactly what could be expected from her as my wedding photographer. She was so helpful and polite throughout the entire process and answered all my questions. It was a joy working with Tina; she was a delight even while working outside in the extreme heat of a Texas August wedding. She caught the magic in every picture and showed great creativity with poses, decorations from my wedding, and the candid photos of our wedding day. I am extremely happy with my wedding photos! Tina was great! I will cherish the memories she captured that amazing day for the rest of my life! Thank you, Tina, for being a part of our special day.Sent on 10/05/2018

Awesome lovely photos in such a rough weather
We are going to have another wedding ceremony in my home country next year so wanted to have a very small wedding ceremony in the U.S with no guests.Sent on 12/30/2018
It was very hard to find a photographer who could take several pictures during the ceremony in the courthouse and outside near the court with a limited budget because taking wedding photos usually very expensive and prices from most photographers were more than $500 regardless of the time covered (we wanted to cover for one hour).
Thankfully, Tina offered the service at a reasonable price :)
The weather on the wedding day was not a good condition to take pictures -- rain with thunder sounds ;)
Photos from her are all very lovely, even though we had such rough weather.
Thank Tina for fighting off the weather that day and for all of your help!
