He really went above and beyond for my wedding process! He is very detailed and helped layout my wedding day timeline. We spoke often during the year before my wedding about what I wanted for engagement photos, when I would receive them, what can I expect the day of the... Read More wedding, anything that needs to told to the bridal party, etc. He put me at ease with the whole timeline of the day and was ready for my call whenever I had questions. He also took some amazing creative shots of me and my husband throughout the entire church venue and reception space. I can't wait to see the final product but even seeing the engagement photos, he is worth splurging over! I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for great quality work and someone who is very detailed!

David was great!!! He photographed my wedding in April 2015 and I'm so glad I picked him to do it. He was extremely organized and worked with me to create a timeline of important shots. He was always available for calls and I felt like he took his time each and every time we... Read More talked. I never felt rushed. My suggestion for any bride is get extra time! Photographs take time and it can easily get away form you. 100% worth the extra money. S


Disappointed

My wedding day came out perfect, no vendor issues throughout, no weather issues, even bridzilla didn't come out. Was relaxed the entire time. Of course I did the traditional Asian wedding with the tea ceremony. Met with David and explained the entire thing, we went back and... Read More forth regarding scheduling and time frame and we both were confident that everything would come out perfect and he would catch every moment. Day of the wedding, he told me that it will be him and two of his assistant. I had reserved three seats for him at the reception for him and his assistants to eat because it was over 10 hour wedding process. He didn't informed me that he was going to bring his girlfriend which was an extra person I had to provide seating, and his "lighting" assistant did absolutely nothing the entire time except look pissed that she was there working. Not to mentioned he had asked his sister to come to the reception to help because he left early himself. Yes another seat to fill. But I didn't let that little snafu ruined my day. When the pictures were received I was so disappointed I had cried. There were about 700 pictures and about 500 of them were repetitive of people taking pictures with the bride and groom at the door. The picture quality were horrible and dark. His "assistant" didn't assist with the pictures making sure the guy's ties were straight, or the girl's dresses were correct. It was only one shot of each and it look like a mess! Plus We didn't even get a picture together. Yes the bride and groom didn't even get one single picture together except for when we were cutting the cake. Most disappointing was that I didn't even get one picture with my father. When the pictures were received I called and emailed him to explain the situation. He stated that he will fix some of the pictures of the lighting. Most importantly, my mother and father in law passed, and we had their pictures on our bouquet. He didn't take pictures of it together. He said that he would "photoshop" it together but 4 months later still nothing. He had missed so many important details that was sentimental to the both of us. People at the wedding who had their own cameras took more sentimental moments then he did. I should have known when I met him at his place of business it was in a townhouse. And he had an allergic reaction to something there. But he reassured me that even with his allergic health outbreak that he will provide me with the best services. I really wished I had went with another vendor. Wedding pictures are the most cherished with your love ones and your future kids, and it's a one time shot deal and he had ruined it for the both of us even my family. Still looking back at the pictures till this day, makes me so mad that I didn't even want to print them out or blow it up to frame! Most important memories of our lives was not documented as expected.

We loved working with David and his team. Both being from PA and living in DC, we were planning a destination wedding in New Orleans. We loved David's work and knew we needed to book him when he picked up the phone to call in response to our initial inquiry. It was such a small... Read More gesture, but it made such an impact.

A True Artist

David's pictures didn't only document our wedding; they captured it in a truly artistic way. He is a real artist and has an eye for capturing beauty in the smallest details. Even though it rained, he was outside taking photos for us. So easy to work with, we're looking forward... Read More to hopefully doing a post wedding session with him soon! He is one of a kind and you definitely get what you pay for. Don't settle for less. It's your wedding and the pictures are what will be talked about by your grandchildren.

Professional, Talented and Perfect for my Day

I hired David as my wedding photographer after looking around for awhile. I liked how organized he was and also extremely easy to talk to. You spend the majority of the day with your photographer so I wanted to make sure I had someone who would make the day enjoyable and keep me... Read More on time. He did all of this and much more. I was beyond impressed with the pictures he took. He put a teaser up which was amazing and I was thinking the rest were just going to be ok but there were soo many more that I am literally having a problem deciding which ones I want to frame and use in my album. Also, the editing he did to the pictures was just amazing. My family and I cannot thank him enough for everything he did before, during, and after the wedding!


Awesome Photographer

I used David as my photographer fro my wedding and he is so easy to deal with and get along with. He works so hard to please you and give you what you want. David took our engagement pictures as part of our wedding package (you get and engagement session or a bridal session)... Read More and they came out so beautiful. he is extremely artistic and he does an amazing job. I actually chose David for one particular session that he offers, one he calls the "Trash the Dress/Post Wedding" Session. this is when he takes you out after the wedding and gets lots of magazine type photos, very artistic shots that you just can't get the day of the wedding. Sadly David was diagnosed with a rib injury that has prevented him from doing what he loves...he actually was not even able to take the pictures at my wedding in April 2010. However he sent not one but 2 photographers that he trusted and respected and they did a wonderful job. He did however do all the editing of my photos and he also has offered the post session to us for free. we are now just waiting and praying for him to recover from his injury. if you like artistic/candid type photos, you should give him a call and see if he will be shooting again by your wedding date, he really is an amazing photographer.
