I called David on a Thursday for a boudoir shoot and he was able to take me the very next day. I am so happy with my photos and so is my husband. I'm just altogether pleased with working with Mr. Guggenheim. He was very informative and I loved the fact that he was a little OCD with his photos. It was just a verification of how great the photos would look. I had a great time during the shoot and I look forward to working with David again.Nov 25, 2015Verified
I had never done a boudoir or nude photoshoot before so I was nervous going into this. Thankfully, David at Appeal.Photography was a pleasure to work with and put me at ease right away. The photos were fantastic and very flattering and made my significant other's jaw drop. I was very happy with the makeup artist/hair stylist as well. She was talented and didn't overdo it.Jul 5, 2015
Haven't even shot my photos with David but already see he's very attentive, flexible and looking to capture my ideas combining it with his pro eye and knowledge. Definitely looking forward next week for my portfolio being put together.Dec 9, 2016Verified
David Guggenheim of Appeal Photography is 50% magician and 100% "Perfect Picture" Photographer. His understanding and use of shadow and lighting to provide mood and accent the lines and angles of the human form is extraordinary. His unassuming demeanor immediately puts you at ease and makes your project a 5 star experience you'll want to repeat! GMMay 7, 2016Verified
