Introduction: My philosophy of photography is to capture that emotional moment which will make a photograph special for generations. Our photographers are especially adept at candid photography where people are relaxed and in their natural state of being. We combine elements of this “photojournalistic” style with fashion photography. The results are albums, DVDs, and photographs which tell complete stories, which capture people’s personalities. I promise to listen very carefully to what you want, and create lasting memories through my photography that are truly special. I will do everything I can to make your wedding day fantastic. I really want you to be ecstatic with your photos, albums and DVDs. I promise to go the extra mile to make your experience with my business 100% satisfying. Our focus is on your needs, and this contributes to making us at the top of the list for Cleveland wedding photographers.

David did my sons wedding in October 2020. He did a fabulous job with the engagement pictures and an even better job on the wedding pictures. My husband requested he take a very special picture of the mother-son dance. Not only did he truly capture us together in a very special way, but the canvas we bought is beautiful. I look at it every day and am reminded how lucky I am to have such an amazing son. David was early to the wedding and took so many awesome photos. I am so glad we found him! Super professional in every aspect. He is very reasonably priced as well You will not be disappointed if you choose him for any event that you want captured for a lifetime of memories!

Details: Wedding • 100 - 149 guests • Indoors • Digital or online download

What can I say? David is an absolutely stellar individual first. Second, he takes great pride in his work, and his attention to detail with his photos are one of a kind. When I had the idea of how I wanted to propose to my then girlfriend- (now fiancé) David helped me step by step capture the best moments. I truly felt like he cared about our story prior to the shoot which allowed me to feel comfortable with him while we did the shoot. He went the extra mile to assure that I was prepared to get these moments captured. I am simply amazed by how clear and high definition my surprise proposal photos turned out. He truly has a gift. David was worth EVERY. SINGLE. PENNY. Don’t question it. Take it from me, book him.

Details: Proposal photoshoot • Candid • Indoors • One location • Online or digital proofs and prints • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

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

    I offer substantial discounts on weddings in the off season, typically December through March. My average savings is 30%. I also offer a 20% discount on non-Saturday weddings. I currently have two apprentices that have trained extensively with me - they are available at a much lower cost if your budget does not match my fees. Below are some of the other categories that I offer: • Weddings - Very Romantic Style Clean, Timeless Album Layouts. Great value considering my high level of skill and experience • Seniors - Creative, on-location outdoor images.Less than 1/2 price of studio photographers • Boudoir - Romantic & sexy images taken in a safe, professional, & understanding environ • Families - I am patient & kind - I love to work with small children, teens, & adults • Commercial - lots of experience with conferences, real estate, jewelry, & events • Pets - love them! I enjoy photographing them alone, or with their master • Ethnic events - I research everything, and have photographed Hindu weddings, including sangeeth, bar mitzvahs, christenings, and every ethnic wedding imaginable

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

    Most folks make initial contact with email, and then with to phone contact. I spend a good deal of time assessing your exact needs, so I understand exactly what you would like me to do, and what your needs are for finished products. I then write a contract specifically outlining what it to be done, and what everyone's responsibility is. :)

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

    I constantly train with the best professional photographers in the world. I have done training workshops with Bob Davis, Jerry Ghionis, and Mike Colon, and many others. These workshops have honed my skills in lighting (particularly off-camera flash, posing, and destination weddings.
