Jake Holschuh took most of our photos. He did an amazing job! He captured every moment and I could not ask for more. He is very professional and patient 🤣. A great wedding photographer but still very affordable! Thank you so much!

David and Jake did an amazing job at capturing my wife and I on our wedding day. The pictures are stunning, which we expected looking at their other work. But the way the captured us and our family and friends took us by surprise. We were brought back to the exact moments when we look at our pictures. All of our pictures invoke the exact feeling we felt at that exact moment. That's a talent that we believe us hard to achieve but they both do it so seamlessly. Thank you again for sharing our day with us.

No one tells you this, but taking photos on the wedding day is a large portion of the experience the day of. The photos are not the only thing you look back on. It's the memories of taking the photos, the time you spend with your significant other in private, gathering family together for the photos...having a photographer who is able to stay organized (and herd the wandering sheep), capture the moment, and create a positive experience for you on what can sometimes be an incredibly stressful day is invaluable. David and his assistant were incredibly thoughtful and fun to work with, very professional, and delivered photos above and beyond our expectations. My husband and I were blown away. I 100% endorse David Alderman Wedding Photography!

Mr. David and his team is awesome! We lucked out like crazy with our photographers! We had Mr. Jake and ... I really wish I could remember the other gentleman's name, but they were so sweet and so fun and these gentlemen were so passionate and energetic about everything! We were instantly at ease and started to joke around with them and be silly like they were our friends! My startled bridesmaids even yelled at them for sneaking up on them while they were putting on their make up! Mr. Jake smiled and told us that we would love those pictures. WE DO! Mr. David edited the photos and, as soon as we showed family and friends, everyone said that our photos looked like they could be on a magazine! His use of colors we dubbed as the Alderman filter :) Thank you for capturing our day so beautifully! <3

We had the pleasure of working with David and Jake for our wedding in September. They both did an amazing job and were a blast to work with. We loved how creative the shots were and how they really captured the emotion and moments of the day! We love our photos! They are very professional and talented and I would highly recommend hiring David as your wedding photographer.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We strive to work within a client’s budget. Every package is custom-tailored and priced according to what you need. Contact David for a personal quote based on your event.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We keep it simple and straight-forward: Schedule a time to chat Sign contract & pay deposit Plan shoot Shoot Edit Deliver That said, this is far from a business transaction. We are becoming part of your story, so it is important that we connect and work well together. We take your investment, your vision and your expectations seriously and with utmost respect. The vast majority of our clients go on to become of our friends. Honestly, we can’t think of any better measure of the quality of our client relationships.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    We have both taught photography and feel that teaching is the best way to learn. Also, if you blink long enough in this industry it will pass you by. Having said that, we prefer the "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain" approach to what we do. You just have fun and make the love last.
