About Dayton Box Photography

hired 61 times on Thumbtack

My name is Dayton Box, and I am a photographer based in Katy & Houston, Texas.

Proud daughter, step-daughter, grand-daughter, girlfriend, and sister!

I am currently enrolled at Texas State University in San Marcos (near Austin,TX) to pursue my desire in being an elementary teacher! Being a big sister of five and surrounded by children most of my life, you'd think that's the total opposite path I'd want to come across, but I absolutely can't wait to have my own classroom in the near future!

I have always been interested in photography, and I started up my business during my sophomore year of high school when I was asked to take senior portraits for a friend, and it has been continuously growing.

Since then, I have been blessed to be able to capture photos that my clients plan to cherish forever!

    Absolutely stunning work. Definitely take her cues and go with her direction- she knows what she's talking about when it comes to posing! Very friendly and conversative, and listens to ideas you might have. I'm hoping she's in San Marcos for a while longer, because I might have engagement photos on the horizon! 10/10, and hoping to use again.

  • 5/5 stars May 6, 2015

    I had a wonderful experience with Dayton! I never had pictures taken before and she made my first experience wonderful. I would definitely recommend her!

  • 4/5 stars April 30, 2015

    Dayton was an absolute joy to work with! She gave so much input and variety in her work while also engaging in conversation getting to know me. I'm so glad I chose her to do my senior photos!

  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2015

    I had an amazing experience! Dayton clearly is an expert at what she does and it shows well. She was on time and managed our photo shoot time well so that I had lots of fun opportunities for cute pics! She is so sweet and always made me feel comfortable! Thank you, Dayton! You rock!

  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2015

    Thank you Dayton for doing a beautiful job with my daughter's graduation/sorority pictures. I love how much thought went into finding the best place to get the best pictures. You were great to work with and hope we have chance to use you again. Would definitely recommend!

  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2015

    Dayton was great! She was patient with me when I don't know how to pose for pictures which is very hard to do. her pictures are fabulous and very beautifully edited!

  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2015

    By far one of my favorite photographers! She's very patient and understanding of schedule conflicts. She will tell you if you need to readjust your body or face just to get the picture perfect. I have already recommended anyone needing pictures taken that she is the girl to go to. Her picture turn arounds are extremely fast especially for a full time college student. Highly recommend!!

  • 5/5 stars April 29, 2015

    I am forever blessed to have had Dayton as my wedding photographer. Besides her superior work, which speaks for itself, Dayton is a true professional. As we all know wedding planning can become very stressful especially if a vendor is hard to contact. Not once did I have that problem with Dayton. No matter how busy Dayton was she always responded in a very timely manner.

    My husband and I incorporated our son into our engagement photos and although he was grumpy that day, Dayton managed to cheer him up and capture wonderful pictures of us all. Dayton is very kind-hearted, idealistic and was an all around joy to work with. I look forward to working with her again and I highly recommend her for any photo shoot and/or event.

  • 5/5 stars April 28, 2015

    Best experience with a photographer so far

  • 5/5 stars April 28, 2015

    Dayton is so flexible and easy to work with! She is so talented and provides the best quality with an affordable price. I would highly recommend her to everyone looking for any type of portrait or photo session!

  • 5/5 stars April 9, 2015

    The day we took our photos Dayton was sick and still managed to come out and make the day all about me. She made me feel very comfortable and really understood what I wanted. She did a great job on my photos and I would recommend her to anyone else who needs pictures taken!

  • 5/5 stars April 8, 2015

    Dayton is a great photographer! She makes photoshoots fun and personal. She coaches you through posing if you're not very experienced. Recommend her to anyone wanting portraits!

  • 5/5 stars April 8, 2015

    This girl is amazing!! I was clueless on how to stand or sit or smile and she knew exactly where to place me. If her experience wasn't enough she made me look beautiful in my senior pictures I'll cherish forever!

  • 5/5 stars April 2, 2015

    We hired Dayton for a 2 hour photo shoot to take my daughters Graduation pictures at Texas State University, on campus, at the sorority house and at the river. Dayton was extremely professional and always responded timely on any questions or concerns we had. She is a very bubbly person and really listens to what her clients want and is willing to give any suggestion a try and then add her suggestions on whether it was working or not. Dayton also made my daughter feel very much at ease and wanted her to enjoy the photo shoot as well, trust me Tegan loved it!!!! We had wind issues and bright sunlight to contend with but Dayton worked her magic with her camera and the few proofs we have seen so far are phenomenal. Dayton was never concerned about running overtime, she just wanted us to capture all we were expecting to and we did and more. Can't wait to see the rest of the photos. I would highly recommend Dayton for any photo shoot, she never stressed out once and made Tegan feel comfortable at all time. Dayton's prices are very reasonable compared to others out there. Thank you Dayton for a great day.

  • 5/5 stars March 30, 2015

    Dayton is so easy to work with and very accommodating. She is very timely with her follow up and always has time to answer your questions. Her pictures are great too! We have had numerous compliments on them.

  • 5/5 stars March 24, 2015

    Dayton is nothing shy of a pleasure to work with! She is extremely accommodating and it's evident that she truly loves photography. I would hire Dayton again in a heartbeat.

  • 5/5 stars March 12, 2015

    Dayton was fantastic. She and her boyfriend both worked my wife's60 birthday party in Katy. The event was at a hotel. They were both professional and even our gust loved them. The event was just a week ago so we are waiting on the pictures but it was overall excellent

  • 5/5 stars March 7, 2015

    My wife and I just took our engagement photos and video with Dayton and the photos are AMAZING. She was fun to shoot with, pictures came back on time, and they are beautiful.

  • 5/5 stars December 1, 2014

    She picked beautiful spots for the pictures and was very good at knowing which poses to do. She made taking senior pictures fun and easy. I love the way the pictures turned out!

  • 5/5 stars November 17, 2014

  • 5/5 stars November 12, 2014

    She is SUCH an amazing girl! So so sweet and so fun to work with! She gives great direction and all of her photos come out perfect. She knows her lighting, angles, and where to go and shoot. Great locations and great photography!!

  • 5/5 stars October 26, 2014

    I absolutely LOVED working with her! She was absolutely wonderful and was very quick to send me a few "sneak peeks". I would highly recommend her to anyone!

  • 5/5 stars October 16, 2014

    Incredibly sweet young lady! Definately a great sport and very professional! Highly recommended!

  • 5/5 stars July 9, 2014

    Our wedding was very small, family and a few friends, at a resturant in Houston. From the moment we emailed Dayton it was a great experience. We've never had a professional photographer and are glad we chose Dayton. She had a fast response and detailed information on how the process would work which calmed my nerves. Dayton arrived on my wedding day with a smile and had such a calm manner. She took fantastic pictures that captures Asa and My true spirit. I recommend Dayton and cannot wait for another special event so I can have her again! Thanks Dayton for reserving memories of our wedding that we can look at for years to come :-)

  • 4/5 stars May 9, 2014

    It has been a pleasure working with Dayton.She shot the photo's for our engagement as well as our son's senior portraits and they turned out lovely. She will also shoot the photo's for our wedding, which I can't wait to see. She is very professional, easy to work with and fair with pricing/packages.

  • 5/5 stars May 5, 2014

    Dayton was terrific! She photographed my daughter's graduation brunch and the photos are fantastic. Her demeanor is warm and easy going and her artistic eye make her shots unique. I highly recommend her work.

  • 5/5 stars May 2, 2014

    I've been close with Dayton for about 8 years now and she has been good with the camera for as long as I have known her, and probably before that. It is clear that she is absolutely in love with what she does, and you can tell that she feels very passionately about photography. Over the years I have witnessed her skills become better and better each day, whether it's the way she edits her pictures or deals with her clients. When shooting with her, Dayton knows exactly what she is doing (i.e., lighting/exposure, poses/angles, scenery, candid shots, etc.). She also makes you feel rather comfortable and at ease, no matter the situation. Sometimes it can feel a bit awkward when someone you've never met before is taking lots of pictures of you, or when you pose a certain way you have never posed before, but nothing is awkward with her and there is no way you won't have a little bit of fun at LEAST. She is very flexible with her schedule and will always rearrange times that work out best for her clients. She keeps her word at all times and will always complete any client's request; everything is timely and put into an orderly fashion. I highly recommend hiring Dayton if you want outstanding pictures that capture the best moments and will last a lifetime-- you will NOT be disappointed!

  • 5/5 stars May 1, 2014

    Dayton did a photoshoot for my three grandchildren that turned out amazing! Having three children smile in sync is almost impossible but Dayton managed to capture so many awesome shots we are having trouble selecting our favorites. She is professional and prompt communicating and guiding the family through the entire shoot.

  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2014

    I met Dayton through cross country and she took some team head shots for us and they turned out really nice. I had seen some of her other work and I knew I wanted her to do my senior pictures. She was on time and gave helpful ideas for different poses. She made the whole process fun and the pictures came out great!

  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2014

    I just recently had my maternity pictures done by Dayton & I am more than pleased with the outcome. She was not only very professional but made taking the pictures a blast. I will defiantly be using her again & would recommend her to anyone.

  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2014

    Dayton was absolutely wonderful! My boyfriend and I had an incredible time during the shoot; she made it so much fun and was able to capture it all :) the edited photos look fantastic and she got them back to me very fast. Can't wait to work with her again :)

    Dayton B. from Dayton Box Photography replied to this review on April 30, 2014:


    I had so much fun getting to capture all the love you and Ryan share!
    Especially the throwing the leaves photos!
    Can't wait to see y'all again in the future! :)


  • 5/5 stars April 30, 2014

    She is very personable and likes to get to know her clients. She is also very proffessional and meets deadlines when they are given. All around she is a wonderful photographer and person!!

  • 4/5 stars April 30, 2014

    I booked my family photography session with Dayton, and overall I am pleased with the end result. Dayton has a very good eye and pays attention to detail, lighting, and color to bring out the best in the photographs. She's very friendly and cheerful. There were a couple of things I did not like. While booking the session, she was not very assertive. I asked her opinion on locations and I didn't get any response until a week before the date of the session when I contacted her to confirm. During the shoot, she kept calling me the wrong name even after correcting her a few times. The whole thing just felt rushed, although I do appreciate her effort to get the perfect shot despite the rain. Lastly, her original quote was "My price for family sessions are $120 and all my sessions include a CD with all the photos in high-res so my clients can order/post as they wish." And I did not receive a CD as stated. She has said the images can be downloaded in high resolution and printed, and I'm ok with that as long as the photos will come out nice. I just did not like the fact that I was told one thing at first that is not true in the end. I do not own a computer and I am worried the photographs will be deleted sooner or later.

    Hi Adriana!

    Thankyou for the review, and I am so happy you were pleased with the end result!
    I am so very sorry if I had called you the incorrect name, and I did not hear you correct me when you did :(
    I do give my clients CD's in person or by mail, and my original way of giving clients their photos are online so they can save and print as they wish.
    If you do prefer me to send you a CD, please email me your mailing address and I can get that to you in the mail as soon as I receive the address.
    My email is I was unaware that you did not own a computer, but your photos should remain in your password protected album online forever.

    Please email or call/text me if you have any more questions or concerns.

    I really enjoyed getting to take photos of you, your husband, and beautiful daughters!!


  • 5/5 stars April 14, 2014


    I can not express in words how extremely pleased I am with the pictures you took at my wedding! You are truly gifted and talented! Every shot was gorgeous! Every picture is my favorite! You were very professional and we received the pictures as promised. You are amazing and have a bright future as a photographer ahead of you! Ryan was awesome too, love love love the video! I definitely will call you in the future for all my photography needs!

    Dayton B. from Dayton Box Photography replied to this review on April 30, 2014:

    I heard about Dayton from some friends and she is absolutely wonderful! She definitely knows what she's doing and my pictures were phenomenal. She is super sweet and bubbly and does an amazing job of doing a great Photoshoot in a short amount of time. She also has an awesome turn around time, I got proofs of some pictures within the day! If you want perfect pictures for any occasion, go with Dayton and you won't be disappointed at all.

  • 5/5 stars March 24, 2014

    I have used Dayton several times and the service I receive is professional, considerate and unhurried. I first used DB Photography in 2013 for my son's senior pictures. I was absolutely delighted with the photos. Amazing quality and super-fast turnaround time. With another graduating son, I didn't hesitate to use Dayton again. She was just as I remembered: very reliable, accommodating to our needs, and has great attention to detail. Love her work!
    I would not hesitate to recommend Dayton
