    SO HAPPY with our pictures!
    The photographer they sent was timely, kind and professional, and a pleasure to work with! He thought of some really creative shots and also incorporated the list we sent ahead of time. The time it took to get the pics back was short and they looked AMAZING! I'm so glad we used these professionals instead of relying on personal cameras and others' camera phones! I would hire them again in a snap!

    Highly Recommend !
    Natalie photographed our 50th wedding anniversary party, a great mix of posed and candid shots. She was punctual, discussed the shots we wanted her to get, and her friendly smile and unobtrusive manner put all our guests at ease with having their photos taken. She and her husband Marcus have excellent customer service skills and both were an absolute pleasure to work with. Plus reasonable prices! Thank you Marcus and Natalie and many blessings on your business!

    Cody did a great job with the raw footage for our wedding videography. We weren't too picky about it, really just wanted to have some video recording of it, so we did not ask for editing. I can't comment if a wedding video with all the works is what you're looking for, but if you just want a video and audio recording of your ceremony and speeches (what we did) you really can't find someone better for the excellent price than Cody!
  • Gina L. Nov 15, 2015
    I had a wonderful experience using Elegance Photography and Video. Cody was amazing, he arrived early and captured everything and more that i asked of him. I showed him many ideas that I wanted and he made sure we used all of the ideas. I was impressed at how fast we got our photos and with the quality. I would definitely recommend and use him again.

    We hired Cody Davis as our wedding videographer in September 2015 and were so pleased with his work. Cody is professional, accommodating, easy to work with and extremely talented. My husband and I were so pleased with our video and watch if often. Cody really captured our special day perfectly and we would highly recommend him for your special event!
  • Maria W. Jun 3, 2014
    Cody and his team did a phenomenal job capturing our wedding day! We were extremely pleased with the professional and quality work he provides. His skill and attention to detail speaks for itself, and we are grateful he was able to make our special day last. We absolutely loved being able to put input into the editing of our wedding video, because the final product was exactly what we wanted. Cody has great patience and worked his magic to deliver an amazing wedding video. Thanks Cody, you do awesome work! -Maria and Nikolas

    Cody provided excellent pictures from our wedding. He is very laid back and flexible but takes care of business. On the day of the wedding, Cody arrived earlier and followed the timeline we discussed and got all the pictures we had agreed to beforehand. We are very pleased with our pictures from the wedding

    Hello. I got Elegance photography to do my wedding video on 12/28/2013 my wedding day. Cody is awesome & a professional. I saw Cody on the knot.com & I liked his material & then we set up an appointment to meet at his house. & he has done many wedding before, so thats great, he knows what he is doing. He is professional & he gives you receipts, he calls or emails you, he is a great communicator. & I felt Comfortable with him. Cody also went to my ceremony rehersal(for an extra fee) but it was worth it. I just got my video final product last week. & once I saw the DVD, it was absolutely specatular with the intro which I absolutely loved & accompanying music was the best picked music. & the whole thing with the 2 cameras was a great investment. Definltely get a professional like Cody, it is worth it. Also Cody communicated with us via email about some edit details & that was perfect to let us know what was going on. I loved my video. Faviola :-) Super happy with my video 100%, I love his work.

    Cody was professional and flexible. He did a tremendous job of balancing the client needs with getting a great shot. He was personable to everyone on-site, and was easy to work with afterwards, when we were editing. I'll certainly hire him again!
  • Terri M. Feb 24, 2013
    We loved Cody’s work! He captured the fun and life of our rehearsal dinner. It was indoors at night, but came out very well. He filmed the same scenes with separate cameras, giving us both photography and video. We did not even think that this could be done well. We were able to download full length video previews and direct him in the editing process to get exactly what we wanted. He even did specialty work in the editing and created a custom menu background. Cody is an excellent videographer and photographer. The cost was very reasonable. We definitely recommend him!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First, we like to spend time over the phone making sure that the dates align with our workload. We do not book if we cannot effectively shoot your wedding or event to OUR standards. Next, we get to know our clients! The last thing you need or will receive is a stuffy photographer with no personality! Yes, we are always this bubbly! It is important for us to know our clients and what THEY want from the photographs/video. 100% Customer Satisfaction is what we offer and stand by our guarantees!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We have over 30 years of collective photography experience behind us! Rest assured, we will do the job the right way, the first time around!
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Please call us for pricing and package details!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
We have always loved seeing high-quality images and always dreamed about, "what we would do if we owned a photography company." Well that day came and we knew that we wanted to be different, to give a different product. We wanted to introduce people to the Elegance difference.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have worked with customers over different religious backgrounds, ethnicities, races and creeds. We only see people and we love people with their flaws and all!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We just completed a photoshoot at the Waco Dental Assistant School with the lovely ladies in their most recent class. The ladies and us had a blast together and at the end of the photoshoot we were all laughing and making goofy, memorable pictures that will last a lifetime. The whole photoshoot took 2 hours to complete and we were welcomed back to photograph their graduation in Oct 2016!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
First and foremost, what are your underlying requirements for a photographer. Are you looking for the best priced, the best galleries, the best packages or a combination of the 3? Having been around the photography industry for over 3 decades, we can tell you that the best price is not always the best option. Next, get a few different quotes. We encourage our clients to get 3 solid quotes and spend time getting to know the interworking of each of their businesses and reviews online. This will allow the client to be in a better situation when making their decision!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
They should consider the ethics and morals behind the photography company. What is their #1 reason for being in business? We all want to make money and live a great lifestyle but does photography move them and fill their life with purpose. Then and only then will you see the Elegance difference!
