I have not had the chance to get the pictures done yet! My fiancé hurt his ankle and it unfortunately got worse. But the photographer has been so patient and is willing to wait until his ankle is better for the photo shoot! The professionalism with this man is beyond phenomenal! I wouldn’t want anyone else to go to for pictures of a wonderful moment!

David did a fantastic job with our wedding photos! We spoke to him at length regarding what we wanted before booking our wedding with him. We felt so comfortable and knew he would make our pictures perfect! As our wedding day came closer, we went through the entire day, step by step. David told us where he’d be and at what time, we discussed exactly what pictures we wanted and he told us what he needed to create the pictures we wanted. We felt so comfortable with everything David told us that when our day came, our pictures were not a concern. On our wedding day, David arrived right on time and started snapping immediately! He made my bridesmaids feel so comfortable and took wonderful, detailed “getting ready” photos. For the groom and groomsmen, David brought another photographer, who did a wonderful job photographing the guys. He created a beautiful first look with my dad AND the groom. Our bridal party photos had a great mixture of formal, staged photos and silly, fun ones- they all came out great! Our second photographer stayed throughout the ceremony and for the family portraits. This was something we had discussed with David prior to our big day and we’re so glad he suggested it because, looking back at the pictures now, it was such a great idea. Once the reception began, everything was a blur but David caught every great moment on camera. He was wonderful enough to stay longer to photograph the cake cutting, which happened a bit later than expected. Throughout our special day, we were aware David was there, taking pictures. However upon receiving them, we didn’t realize just how many pictures he was able to take. He truly got every detail, every party goer and every special moment. We are incredibly pleased and grateful for David’s work. We’ll have these wedding pictures forever and absolutely love the way they came out! Every time we look at them, we relive the whole day all over again! I would recommend him 10x over!

David was awesome! We could tell that he cared about what he was doing and cared about our event. He wanted to take good pictures for us. He cared about the shots. He asked what we'd like to do but also had great ideas of his own. The pictures were all beautiful! We would absolutely book him again. Some of our guests were also so impressed by him that they said they'd like to book him in the future too. We absolutely recommend him!

FAQs

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

    My hourly rate is $150 / hour of shooting time. This rate includes editing all of the photos. This also includes 10 digital downloads with the right for personal use. This includes printing and sharing on personal social media accounts. This does not include retouching of photos.

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

    I typically like to have a conversation with my customers to understand what they are looking for, and if they have any styles they like more than others. For events such as weddings, I will create a shared Pinterest board and I will collaborate with the client to understand what they like before the event. This ensures that I take photos that fit the style in which they are interested in.

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

    I took a few photography classes in college 30 years ago, and I have been taking photos ever since.
