I recommend Using Self Hosted WordPress if you are looking to have a photography based website because of Content Ownership.
Wix vs WordPress – Which One is Better? Pros and Cons?
Wix is nicely built closed platforms which is easy to join and making a website, you should consider that you are joining their proprietary platform. Wix is a business model to sign up for their service and getting in is easy but if you want to exit, migrating your content can be extremely difficult. You can download an XML file of posts and pages but images are a different story.
WordPress is the most Easiest and the Best platform for Photography or any other niche website. WordPress has many features that makes WordPress is the king of making websites over WIX.
As you said you will also sell your photos within your website, WordPress could be your best bet. With Easy Digital Downloads or WooCommerce plugin you can start selling your photos right away. You can also make a membership website with WordPress for selling your photos.
