Working with David for my daughter's senior portraits was a fun and memorable experience! David is knowledgeable, professional, creative and collaborative. He met with us prior to the photo shoot, listened to my daughter's ideas, and we worked together to pick the best locations. During the photo shoot, David was enthusiastic and suggested some unique poses, lighting techniques and camera angles. Within a few days, he posted the photos. They are beautiful and reflect my daughter's personality!Sep 8, 2017Verified
We had an awesome family photo session yesterday. David Paul Photography was amazing. I was coming in from out of town and he kept in constant contact with me. Also the day of our scheduled shoot the remanence of Hurricane Florence came through and he accommodated us and we rescheduled for the next day. David was amazing with the dogs and his easy going and joyful personality really made it fun. He even quickly edited a photo to give me a "teaser" before we leave tomorrow. Thank you David for providing us a memento that is timeless and priceless. I would highly recommend him!Sep 19, 2018VerifiedDavid Paul Photography's reply
Thanks Matt! I am glad that I was able to accommodate your out of town family members and be flexible with the times of our shoot. It was worth waiting for - everyone looks great including the dogs! It was a fun time :)
A pleasure to deal with. Everything I hoped for with regard to photos taken and being able to communicate. If I decide I need another set of family photos, I won’t hesitate to schedule with David Paul Photography again.Dec 12, 2018VerifiedDavid Paul Photography's reply
You have a wonderful family! I am glad you were happy with Sarah Wright as your photographer - she is a star! I also appreciate that you hired me a second time to photograph your husband's headshots. I am so glad that he loved them!
Great communication, punctual and professional. And the photos turned out very nice.May 9, 2018Verified
David was amazingly fun to work with, including dealing with the weather, two very young, less than cooperative toddlers, 6 children in all, and a few adults that were less than thrilled. I've seen the teaser photos from a week ago, and they are great. i am excitedly looking forward to the full deal any day now per his original quote...from the teasers, I'm sure we will love the whole package. I'd work with David again in a heart beat... and if he can get good shots with our crowd, David is able to find magic for anyone!Dec 3, 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. 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.
