I love coming alongside my clients to capture the small details that happen amid big moments. From elegant weddings filled with music and laughter to snuggling babies that are wrapped in joy and hope. I love celebrating your life’s milestones with bold, warm, and radiant photos that you’ll treasure for the rest of your life. 
Photography has always been an interest of mine, but I had no idea how my life would change when my grandparents gifted me my first REAL camera. My hobby quickly picked up steam, and before I knew it, I booked my first official session. Despite a case of butterflies, I realized that nothing had felt easier my entire life than photographing that first sweet couple. 
When I’m not behind my camera, you can usually find me hiking, reading, napping or scouting out my next donut. I’m married to Ty, the love of my life, and I’m mama to the most adorable baby boy. (Sorry not sorry) My family is my whole heart and the inspiration behind much of my work. Growing up between India and Montana gave me the ability to look into every new experience and find the gifts it has to offer. When I get to work with my clients, I have the honor of bringing my whole heart, and my eye for each moment’s gift. 
For me, photography is not a trend, I’m honestly at home with a camera in my hand. Capturing the brilliance of a couple on their wedding day or the radiance of a family in their sweet season makes me come alive. There are a lot of hobby photographers out there, but with ten years of experience and over 500 hours of professional training, you can rest at ease knowing the caliber of experience you will receive. 
Every part of what I do is intentional to ensure I can take the time to understand your vision and build trust. I believe your life does not happen on accident, and neither should your beautiful photos. Whether we are capturing your wedding or chronicling your families story, every click of my shutter is done so with anticipation and purpose. 
Wedding days fade into memories and kids are consistently changing. Yet the magic of a photograph is the ability to relive that moment. I love spending time with each client, so when their session rolls around, I have a deep understanding of how to capture the inside jokes, the warmth of their handhold, the joy in their love for one another. Creating thoughtful heirlooms that I’m honored to help curate. 
Whether it’s a destination wedding at the ends of the earth or a newborn session in the sanctity of your bedroom, I’ll capture the radiance and intention that lace together every facet of your life. We’ll document the memories that become the foundations and pillars of the vibrant life you are building.

 "Dolly was friendly, smart, interactive, HELPFUL, and made us look like models. She was so sweet to all of our family and friends and made everyone feel comfortable (and look amazing) in the photos. She also let us do our bridal shoot after the wedding and traveled all around Nashville with us to take mural shots. She stuck to our budget and delivered fantastic products! She's one of the best out there!"

  "Dolly is incredible, so talented and sweet. I recently got married and Dolly was our photographer for the day. We had a limited budget but Dolly was willing to sit down and talk with us to discuss our needs. She's very patient and understanding. 
She was not just our photographer. Dolly went above and beyond to make sure that the day would go smoothly and as stress free as it could be. Way way way before the wedding, Dolly would meet with us in person to chat and to get to know each other. It made the day less awkward. It definitely didn't feel like a stranger was just staring at us with a camera, it felt like a friend was taking our pictures! She also worked with us on a timeline that was a lifesaver on the wedding day. My husband and I thought of Dolly as our semi wedding coordinator. She's so on top of her things! 
Definitely book Dolly!!!! She will be your friend through the whole wedding planning craziness (we were so not organized and Dolly, being the boss mom, definitely kept us on track). "
We love Dolly!"

If you want someone who will help you feel at ease who doesn't take herself too seriously--yet takes her work seriously--look into working with Dolly! Her rates are reasonable, her warmth and friendliness are infectious, and she does great work! In addition to photographing my wedding, she did engagement and family photos for my fiance, his kids, and me! Her engagement session came with a hair and makeup artist, which made the experience even more magical!

The Dolly DeLong Wedding Experience & Process 

let's chat! >>


I specialize in fun, bold, and vibrant photos that help capture the real emotions that will embody your wedding day. I will provide digital images in an online gallery, and a photo release for you to print off your favorite photos from your big day! My main goal is to make sure you have images which will make you smile in the years to come! A very important note I always like to add is you, the client, are hiring me specifically for my photography style. Please trust that I will send over the best-curated images to you that best reflect your wedding day. 
My most popular wedding collection includes your fully edited images (between 700-800 images), two photographers, and at least 8 hours of coverage to help capture your day! If I am needed for a longer period (over 8 hours) it is $200 extra per hour (final payment is due ONE week before your wedding date, and if for some reason it is decided I am needed longer at your wedding, the additional per hour balance will be due before I can release final images). Please contact me to schedule your consultation!
