David Paul Photography
About this pro
Very professional, very responsive. Made my day so much less stressful. I love the pictures - they were perfect for what we wanted to capture.Jul 26, 2018VerifiedDavid P.'s reply
What a nice review! My son and protege David MacCluskie shot this wedding. His work as an apprentice and now a full-fledged photographer has been superb. Having him on our staff enables our customers to get quality photography at a fantastic price! We are so very happy that you love your images Valerie.
From the first interaction to the most recent, David has been a pleasure to work with. My fiance and I were blown away by the experience and final products of our engagement shoot. David listened to all of our suggestions and implemented every single one of them. Because of horrible weather the first couple times we were supposed to shoot, David had already held future days in place for our session that worked for us. If you want your session, no matter what kind it is, to be stress-free and downright fun, book David.Dec 15, 2016Verified
David was amazing at our wedding. He captured our day perfectly! He was there to get our smiles and every moment of the day. After I received all our pictures, I laughed and cried my way through the whole day again:) He did a great job with getting pictures of our dogs in the mix like we wanted and still managing to grab a few without them when they wouldn't leave our side. I couldn't recommend David Paul enough!Nov 25, 2016Verified
David was referred to us by a personal friend for our wedding photos. It takes a special kind of professional to not only be able to capture the perfect shot at the perfect time but to creatively make small children cooperate in the pictures. Before watching David in action, I would have thought this to be impossible. If his perfection and professionalism were not enough, the quality of our photos are second to none. We would never even dream of hiring anyone else for our future photography needs after our experience with David. It is so difficult to find perfection in any offered service these days but David has given us memories that we will cherish forever.Sep 7, 2016VerifiedDavid P.'s reply
It was a delight to work with both of your families. I agree that your wedding photos are outstanding - thanks for being so much in love, being good-looking, and having lovely children! You made my job easy...
It was a pleasure to work with David Paul. Of the photographers that responded to our request for our event, I clicked more with David than with any of the others. From the time we started working with him, he was always both professional and responsive. He gave me about a five day turnout for the pictures. Having heard of people that, two months after a wedding, were still waiting for proofs, five days sounded great. it ended up taking six days but I will cut him some slack. Everything that I have asked to have done has been done. When I told him my husband's hair was too blue in three pictures, he had new photos to us within half an hour. And that was on a Sunday morning. I would not have been surprised if it had taken him until Monday to get back to me. He took all the pictures I wanted and was very unobtrusive which I count as a big plus. No one likes to have a photographer in their face all the time. I knew he was taking a lot of pictures but was not feeling as if I was always in the spotlight. I would not hesitate to use him again for another event.Oct 31, 2017Verified

- 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.
- 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.
