It was VERY last minute that hiring a photographer was necessary. I had never worked with Dave before. We had a lengthy phone interview, and then a short "on hold" while I discussed with my clients. We pulled the trigger and met Dave the next day!
It was important the essence of this party was captured. A little boy was having the most outrageous, fun birthday party a child could ask for and every aspect of it needed to be on film!! And that meant from the absolute beginning of the guests arriving, to creating wax molds at the end - the entire experience needed to be remembered for a long, long time.
And it will be . . .
A photographer who takes the time to listen with intent, ask questions ahead a time, take the initiative to visit the site in advance tells me there was a real professional in Dave. Throughout the entire day, Dave knew what his plan was, knew how to be in our scene, but wasn't!! His presence was everywhere, but yet you never felt like he was intruding anyone's space.
6 hours FLEW by . . . And as we wrapped up and said goodbye to a spectacular day, Dave was still shooting . . . But this time, he was capturing a family photo - something most photographers wouldn't have thought of . . .
But Dave did!!
Thank you Dave!! A job well done and forever remembered!!
