Finding a wedding photographer who is both creative and insanely cool is hard to come by, but if this combination interests you, look no further. I found David by googling wedding photographers in Cincinnati. What initially piqued my interest in David’s photography services for my wedding, was how absolutely natural, beautiful, and creative all of his photos were. I was not interested in working with a photographer who would put my husband and I and our wedding party in awkward, forced poses. What I did not anticipate or expect when hiring David, was to add a fun, cool, laid back guy who actually added to our wedding day, just with his presence. David made me feel confident and at ease in all photos – I never felt awkward or unsure, because I trusted his talent and his personality made the whole day feel relaxed and fun. David truly cares about the couples who choose him to be a part of their day and that exudes from him prior to your wedding, on your wedding day, and after. My best choice was choosing to marry my husband, my second best choice was choosing David to capture our day – in him, we have found a photographer and friend, for life.

As a wedding photographer myself, I had very high standards for my own wedding. David's combination of great personality, technical mastery, and an artistic vision created some simply stunning photographs. He came all the way up to Akron for our wedding and worked his butt off for 14 hours! He was just as energetic at the end of the night as in the morning. We couldn't be happier with the results and highly recommend him for anyone looking for the very best.

Honestly, the best decision I ever made in this whole wedding (aside from my groom) was to have David photograph my wedding. And my engagement shoot. And inevitably every other event in my life when I want memories captured in an amazing way. He has a talent to make things look better than they were in person, to capture tiny details that might otherwise go unnoticed, and the impossible task of motivating groups of boys to be awesome in pictures. His fun, upbeat, and always excited personality puts everyone at ease and makes for perfect pictures. During shoots he makes you feel like you are all super models, but especially the bride :) And his pictures look the same way. He had an amazing team of photographers with him that were absolutely amazing as well and between them all we have memories from our special day that we can share with the world - it is an absolute dream. What David and his team gave me for our wedding (and at a way better price than any other true photo journalist in Cincinnati) is a priceless treasure. Also, I was more than thrilled to receive these wonderful gifts MONTHS before other photographers can usually deliver. I always had photos within a week - just because he was THAT excited and that hyped up about the shots... as he should be. They are pretty incredible.

I simply can't say enough amazing things about David's work and personality! He was a BLAST to be around the entire day (as well as his assistant Ashley)! They kept us laughing all day long which made for fantastic pictures. David brought several ipads and passed them around at the reception to show people pictures from earlier in the day - I can't tell you how much the guests enjoyed that and how many tears I saw from people who truly had no words for his amazing work. The images speak for themselves - they are absolutely breathtaking! They so perfectly capture the raw emotion of the day and make you feel like you are re-living it all over again. Would HIGHLY recommend David to any bride and groom looking for fantastic images at a great price. The experience and images truly can't be beat by any other photographer (believe me, I've talked to them…)!

I really loved working with David. From our first phone call to today, when I'm receiving my beautiful photographs, I have been nothing bur overjoyed with his professionalism and his work. He is a warm, kind person, did a great job of blending in with the guests of the wedding, and took some of the most beautiful wedding photos I have ever seen (and I LOVE the wedding gallery). Both my mother and I said afterwards that we were often wondering just where David had disappeared to during the ceremony and reception, but our doubts were allayed when we saw the quantity and quality of his shots. He even flew all the way home from Dubai to shoot our wedding. I could not be more grateful he was the favorite of my vendors and was worth every single penny.

Not only does David take amazing shots, he has a wonderful personality to go along with it. He adds so much to the wedding day in terms of his energy and enthusiasm. He makes everyone feel so comfortable and excited to create some amazing memories on film. He truly wants to create a story with his photographs and capture all the emotions the day brings out. I felt like I had a friend taking my picture who understood and anticipated my needs. He was able to take control of the situation, but also at times blend into the background. He is an asset to any wedding day!

Dave has been taking our children's pictures for years. He has an uncanny ability to capture their true personalities. That, combined with his incredible knowledge of lighting and location makes us feel very blessed to know such a talented artist. We hope to take advantage of Dave's unique photography skills for years to come!
