Where do we begin..After months of searching for a photographer, we were starting to become extremely discouraged. Either the prices were too high or the photographer had bad reviews. This is why we were ecstatic to come across Billly Beach photography. I will be honest between his awesome prices and stellar reviews we were sold. His prices were in our budget and are very affordable for any wedding. It took one short phone call to get in touch with him and set everything up.
Okay, so on to the wedding ...We traveled from FL to the east coast of NC for our wedding, so we didn't meet Billy until our rehearsal dinner the night before the ceremony. First impressions mean a lot to my husband and I, and boy did Billy make an impression. His enthusiastic attitude was contagious! Within minutes he had us all laughing. His passion for photography and people is obvious. He truly knows how to catch different genuine emotions - smiles, laughs and for my husband "psychotic faces." (lol!) As one of the previous reviews said, he was like a ninja our wedding day. He was taking photos on the dance floor one moment and the next he is up on the second floor balcony capturing a different shot.
A few days after the wedding we had over 1800 pictures that just blew us away. They are absolutely breathtaking! Now we are able to relive our wedding - even the moments that we missed.
So, coming from a hard-to-please husband and wife - if you are looking for a photographer I HIGHLY suggest Billy. You will not regret it.

Billy Beach Wedding Photography says:
Haley, Thx for the kind words. You're wedding was absolutely perfect. I had so much fun meeting and photographing everyone. Your sense of style and laid back attitude, with the help of family and friends made your wedding absolutely perfect. I hope you and Tom have many happy years together. Hopefully we'll be hearing the pitter-patter of little feet in the not too distant future....Billy
Trying to find a photographer for a wedding is a daunting task, but Billy made the process smooth and stress-free! We had a small wedding of about 14 people and didn't want to pay $1500 for a photographer's "investment" package. We only needed a photographer for 2 hours at the most. Billy's packages were perfect for our needs, and would even be perfect for a larger wedding with a full day of pictures. We went with the hourly rate and could not have been more pleased. Billy was enthusiastic and made sure everyone was where they needed to be for pictures. He made everyone comfortable in front of the camera. The turnaround time for our pictures was within 24 hours and we ended up with over 300. The pictures are stunning, and we were able to download every single one for personal use. From the first phone call to the last email with our pictures, the process was streamlined and painless (on my mental state AND our bank accounts). It is not a compromise of quality by any means (Billy's gallery of pictures was better, in my opinion, than some of the $1500 photographers I researched), and I would whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone.
Billy Beach was an absolutely amazing addition to our wedding!! He listened to exactly what we wanted and got it done! He was so quick, and took an incredibly large amount of pictures which are all incredible to look at. On our wedding day we felt like it went by so fast and that we missed so much, but Billy Beach was really able to capture things we wish we had seen! It was nice to see those "missed moments" when looking back at the pictures. There were a ton of great pictures, and I truly don't remember seeing Billy Beach around- he did a great job getting shots without being overwhelming or in the way :) Thank you Billy Beach!!! You will definitely be recommended to all my engaged friends!
My husband and I chose Bill to take our engagement, ceremony and reception photos. Bill did an awesome job! He even came to the rehearsal to take pictures. When Bill arrived on the scene he was in full photography mode taking pictures of EVERYTHING!!! Bill was very professional as well as very quick with the turn around time of getting our pictures back. We got married on a Saturday and had our pictures back on Monday!!!
That was FANTASTIC!!!
I will definitely recommend Bill and hope to use him again in the future for other events.
Billy was absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He was so personable and so kind to our families. I loved the way he set up his pricing. It is by far the best in Wilmington. I would never go with any other photographer in Wilmington for any event. We love you Billy. Josh and Jessica.
Billybeach was incredible at my daughter's wedding. This individual knows what needs to be done at a wedding. He was completely in touch with the entire wedding party and all of the guests. As father of the bride, this made this event fabulous. He was in the right spot at the right time over the entire week-end. Actually, none of the guests needed to bring any cameras. The pictures were all taken as if he knew what was needed. He is a true professional and his work shows for it, I would recommend this man to all of my friends for use in any photography session they may need . The pictures were fabulous. You may have to worry about a lot of things when your daughter gets married, but hire him, and you don't have to worry about the pictures. One less thing off my plate, and Billy, You made my daughter's special day that much more special. Thanks so much. Mike Miller Father of the Bride

Billy is amazing! We found him at one of the local bridal shows and after speaking with him there, my husband contacted him later that day. Luckily for us, he was available for our wedding day. Billy went above and beyond for us. He came to our rehersal and also came by the salon where I was getting ready for the big day. He always made us feel completely comfortable. He insisted that he would not take a deposit from us. His prices are more than fair especially considering everything he does. Our wedding day was perfect and he caught everything--from beginning to end. When we got our pictures (which came in quicker than I expected) my husband and I were thrilled. It was like going through a flip book. He did not miss a thing. Our ceremony was short, less than 10 minutes, and Billy got awesome shots on the ground level and somehow made it upstairs for some truly amazing pictures. We are still trying to figure out how he did that! :) I have a large family and Billy rememebered everyone. My husband is the oldest of six, and he got all of the siblings in the family shots--which is no easy task. He was on point the entire night. Billy was always prompt when responding to emails, texts or phone calls which was really important to me. We would highly recommend Billy to any future bride and groom and we are beyond grateful for having him there to capture our special day. Thank you Billy!!!

5 stars are not enough for each category to explain how terrific it was to have Billy behind the camera. He was completely on point, he didn't miss a beat. He was with us ALL day from before the wedding to do 'first look' shots up until the last good bye of the night. He was part of the family that day and he made sure everyone and everything was captured perfectly. Not to mention how affordable he was and the exceptional level of work he produced. Book him now! You will NOT find a better person to preserve the most important day of your life!!
Bill Parr with Billy Beach Photography was so awesome! We used him for engagements, bridals and for our wedding! He made a point to always make sure to gain shots of sunsets with us with fireworks and us with us with each of our guests! He interacted with the guests and made them feel so at ease with getting pictures taken! He can work a crowd and took moments that we did not even know about until the gallery was posted! Everyone loved him and our guests couldn't get over how fast he took shots so everyone could keep enjoying the night! He was perfect!
Billy Beach did a great job.
We loved that we could pay for his services by the hour, and than purchases the photos that we like after they are all finished. This package is by far the best there is. We didn't spend thousands of dollars and get stuck with any pictures we didn't want or like.
We had Billy at our wedding for the length of time that was appropriate for us, and when we returned from our honeymoon we were able to look over all of the pictures and pick out the ones that we really liked and wanted.
Overall, very satisfied with the experience and service that Billy provides.
I would strongly suggest Billy's services to anyone looking for a photographer, and for the value of his product, it can't be beat.
Everybody LOVES Billy! Professional, on-time, accommodating, and into his work! Billy was charismatic and an absolute blast to have at our event! He made me feel comfortable in front of the lens and was so much fun to have shooting our day! His style is so engaging and actually entertaining to the point that guests listened, poised and had fun being photographed! He had great ideas for photos and was spontaneous, bringing in elements around us! I honestly couldn't imagine a better photographer! Our guest paid high compliments and are still reminiscing about the photography!
Billy Beach was absolutely fantastic! His personality is laid back, and when he is shooting it's almost as though he is not there - he is able to get the shots he needs without being intrusive. We received the photos when promised, and the results were stunning! He captured our day perfectly, I would highly recommend him.
Billy Beach is AWESOME!!! I can't say enough good things about him! We looked into many photographers for my daughter's wedding. After speaking with him we knew to choose Billy!. His laid back personality just flowed with our family! Billy's pricing fits everyone's budget which was very important to us as well. Family and friends have gone on and on about how special and beautiful the wedding pictures are. It was a small family wedding with 37 of us. The forecast called for rain and it held off!! The sky was gorgeous and Billy was patient and kind!. He even came to the rehearsal dinner at no extra charge. If you are looking into a photographer for any event, please do not hesitate with Billy, He will make your special event amazing and you will love him!! Thanks Billy for making our daughter and son in law's wedding with lasting memories!!! The pictures are Beautiful!!!
Billy was a great photographer at our wedding. He was so much fun and everyone at our wedding loved taking pictures with him. He is very professional and took some really amazing pictures. His easy going style was perfect for our beach wedding.
Bill did an amazing job! He captured all of the details, large and small, of my daughter's wedding. The results were perfection in pictures. His personality made working with him an absolute delight. His prompt follow up and delivery of the pictures was first class. HE IS THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS!!
I would choose billy all over again if i could. I got so many magnificent compliments from my guest and even my parents about his work. He is extremely helpful and went out of his way to make sure everything ran smoothly on my special day. I would recommend him to anyone. He is truly the best!!! I was having a hard time finding a videoagrapher , but Billy came to the rescue and found me someone the day before the weeding. If i needed help i could always count on him! Words cannot express how grateful i am with Billy and his outstanding quality of work. He captured the most beautiful moments of my special day, moments i will forever cherish.
Billy from Billy Beach Photography was more than we were looking for in a photographer! We chose Billy ultimately because of the rave reviews about his services. His prices are the best you will find, and his fun, enthusiastic and passionate approach to photography make for great photos.
I'm from NC, living out of the country, so I wasn't able to meet Billy before our wedding, but he made sure to get to know me, my fiance and our family dynamics through emails, and phone conversations before we came back to NC to get married. Its little things like this that makes Billy stand out from the rest. Over these conversations, Billy somehow got me talking about my (unobtainable) photography dreams . He was so sweet to just listen to my ultimate photography fantasies on the phone one evening. The next morning when I checked my email, there was one from Billy. He said he'd been thinking about our conversation, and wanted to make a plan to have everything just as I wanted! And he pulled it off!! If you can dream it, Billy can probably do it! :)
He went above and beyond, coming to our rehearsal dinner to meet the family so he would know who's who on the big day. On our wedding day, I don't even think I noticed Billy taking photos. He was very discrete, but he captured so many amazing moments, I don't know how I didn't see him!
The photo booth was a huge hit, and I'm so glad we have our wedding captured on video too.
If you are wavering on whether to have Billy capture your special moments, I would highly recommend him. He will go above and beyond. (He even helped me find a baby crib in the area for one of our guests). He will surprise you (besides rolling up on a motorcycle!) and delight you (your pictures will be breathtaking!). He will under promise and over deliver! Book him, quickly!
Billy was WONDERFUL! We had family pics taken on the beach during our vacation and he did awesome! It was reasonable prices by far when compared to others and quality/style and time spent with family was amazing! Will definitely be contacting him again if we vacation close to his area!
As the Mother of the Bride, you want everything to be perfect. With Bill it is. He supported and collaborated with our family; he filled in for the priest; and took amazing pictures. My daughter said her wedding exceeded her expectations. I thank Bill for that.
If we had to pick one word to describe Billy Beach, it would be AWESOME!!! He is an amazing photographer, and we were lucky enough to have him take our engagement and wedding pictures. He even came to our rehearsal on his own time, and took some great pics there. He captured every little moment of our special day, so when we look back at our pictures, it's like reliving the best day of our lives! He is very personable, funny and laid back and takes every opportunity he can for a great picture! He was also very helpful to us through our wedding planning process as we are from out of town, and he did an excellent job communicating by phone and email. We cannot thank him enough for everything he did for us! Highest recommendation for him to be your photographer! Thanks again Billy, you rock!
