About Me

Taking pictures has always been my biggest passion. Everywhere I go, I take my camera with me.

I still remember the day I got my first camera. I was 13, and it was a present for my Bar-Mitzvah—a simple, fully automated film camera. Reflecting back, I suppose I can say that my photography career began then, and blossomed when I took photos on all of my high school's field trips. It wasn't until several years ago, when I began taking photos at night club parties for a corporation, that I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Those projects gave me the experience of capturing candid and staged photos from many unique angles and views. After taking photos of happy people having fun and enjoying life, from there it was a natural progression to wedding photography.

I love capturing the special connection between a bride and a groom and finding a way to express what I see of their relationship in a photograph. For me, there's no better feeling than to have someone look at my photo and say, "Look at that picture ... that is awesome!"

I have been doing professional photography for weddings, portraits, models, Bat / Bar-Mitzvahs, and public events since 2004. I recently relocated to Dallas Texas, and I'm looking forward to working with you'all.

My GOAL is to provide you with the best photos for your portfolio.

Wedding photography in Dallas and DFW Area by Tsafrir Melamed

When choosing a wedding photographer in the Dallas Area, you're not just buying a service - you're investing in your memories. You envision your wedding day as a unique and wonderful moment in time. So, you want to make sure that your photographer captures it the same way you imagine it.
There are several different styles of wedding photography: traditional, photojournalistic, and illustrative. Each style has its own benefits and drawbacks.

The traditional wedding photography style covers the event with little artistic perspective. It is usually comprised of many “strict” posed photos, which always look the same. Traditional photographers tend to work based on a list of shots, and they tend to orchestrate the bridal party to pose for the photos.
The photojournalistic wedding photography style captures moments when they occur.  The photojournalistic photographer is always “on the watch” for special moments, making sure to capture them in real time. Usually there will be no “list” of pre-planned photos; instead, you will have a story-like documentary of your wedding day.
The illustrative approach to wedding photography incorporates the photographer’s artistic view point. With this style the photographer directs his subjects to a location that has good lighting and background in order to create a better shot. Then the subjects are asked to “be themselves,” and the photographer captures more comfortable looking photographs. Unlike the traditional approach, the photos in the illustrative style tend to look much more natural.

Our studio, PhotosTM Dallas photography, hopes this information helps you understand the different types of photography, enabling you to make better choices that are right for you.

PhotosTM Dallas Photography is based in McKinney, Texas. We serve the entire Dallas and DFW Area in Texas. Destination wedding inquiries are welcome.
