David brought all my wishes and visions come true and beyond with my engagement and wedding pictures. His pictures are phenomenal. Not only that he is one of the kindest people I've ever met. He is capable of making everyone comfortable and he's funny. After I saw my engagement... Read More photos I knew I needed him for my wedding, which was in NY. David made everything easy on the business side and he was incredibly helpful the day of the wedding and before, creating a schedule for the day. My husband does NOT smile for pictures but David was able to get plenty. My friends and family loved him so much they were talking about him on a first name basis. He also gives you every picture be takes which is awesome, with no watermark. You won't regret having David!

The happiness I get from wedding photography comes not only from creating beautiful works of art, but also from contributing to the lives of others and experiencing their joy when they see their photographs. I got started in wedding photography while working with our wedding photographer and I knew it was the perfect fit for me. I'm from San Diego, but after we had our son, we moved to Virginia Beach to be closer to family. After 10 years in business and photographing over 260 weddings, I can honestly say I am so lucky and grateful to get to do what I love everyday! ~ David Champagne
