Finding a photographer for our wedding seemed to be the most difficult task for my husband and I. I finally put my husband in charge of the task and I have to say I made the right decision!!!
We came across David through a referral. From the start he far exceeded anyone else we called. He was incredibly responsive, detailed and patient with us. On the day of he and his wife Angela were so on top of things, made sure we stuck to our schedule and I swear they seemed to be everywhere capturing everything from the night.
I couldn't be more thrilled with the service they provided!
David and Angela with Capture Forever went above and beyond what we expected in a photographer. From day one, David was enthusiastic and helpful in assisting us in what to expect during the overwhelming wedding planning process. They were happily willing to travel to New Mexico for our wedding, and we are so glad they did! They were prepared to handle difficult lighting and windy conditions. They kept the day running smoothly and on time. We would have been lost in time without them. They captured our wedding day perfectly. It was very important to have candid photos that captured the emotions of the day, and they appeared to capture every moment at every angle. It was also very important for us to capture the unique and beautiful New Mexican scenery. They were able to incorporate the beautiful background and highlight the incredible colors perfectly. It shows that David and Angela love New Mexico and appreciate the unique beauty of the Southwest.
My husband and I were very nervous to work with a photographer and wanted to feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. David and Angela immediately made us feel at ease, and we even found the engagement session fun. For our engagement session, David found the perfect location in a wild mustard field, and also took us to the Santa Monica Pier and took fun carnival photos. We had a blast!
Capture Forever provides a unique combination of talent of digital, film, and super 8 film. They were able to combine their use of these three methods and create an amazing slideshow, perfectly capturing our wedding day. We will be forever grateful for the everlasting memories Capture Forever provided for us. We can't recommend them enough! Not only are they talented, but very fun to work with. What more could you ask for on your wedding day?
We were very pleased to have David Savinski Capture Forever photograph our son's wedding and also the 'day after' which was new to us and something that other photographers don't offer. We saw David's web-site on the internet and kept comparing him to local photographers here in NY - there was no comparison - we knew we had to convince him to come east! He was very easy to work with, we did the preliminary discussion and contract 'long distance.' Once he arrived we met with him to discuss the day and how it would flow. He made sure he had a list of 'must have' photos - and was able to sort out all the various family members so no one was excluded in error. David took very good care to find the right location for outdoor shots and the day after shots in NYC were perfect - told the story of John and Carol's romance perfectly! We have looked at the photos many times and each time notice something different. He took many photos at the reception but was unobtrusive - everyone was so comfortable with him the candid shots are great! He's creative, artistically talented and also a nice guy. David did truly capture the day forever.
David was very professional and responsive from our very first contact with him. He put us at ease right away--once we met him, we knew we didn't need to talk to any other photographers. He was very knowledgeable about the entire wedding planning process and his role in it. He was helpful in guiding us in our decisions as they pertained to photography and made some really useful suggestions, but also respected our unique style and wishes. He was never overbearing. His aesthetic sense is amazing--I can honestly say that our photos are like no other wedding pictures I've ever seen. They are gorgeous. We have gotten so many compliments on them. He even included a "day-after" photo shoot that was more of a fashion-type shoot--it was a really nice experience for me and my husband--very fun. We had a fantastic experience with him from beginning to end, and he had really reasonable prices, too, especially considering his level of talent and skill. I can't recommend David highly enough.
From the moment I spoke to David on the phone, I knew we had chosen the perfect photographer. He was easy going, listened to our ideas and style, and offered insightful feedback. He was readily available by email and phone before and after the wedding. On the big day we felt very at ease with David and his assistant James there. The product was truly amazing. We received the most gorgeous photos which were even published in a local magazine!
Choosing a photographer was our most important task heading into the wedding and we definitely struck gold with Capture Forever! Our photgrapher, David, was everything we hoped for: professional, flexible, unobtrusive, caring, responsive, and, of course, tremendously talented! Before, during, and after the big day, he was such a pleasure to work with (in fact, unbeknownst to me, he'd even gone to the location ahead of time to scope out some good photo op spots!). And we couldn't have been happier with the final result: a beautifully composed album which captured all of the most important moments, including some that we didn't even know had happened. Every time I page through the album, I get to relive one of the most magical experiences of my life. It's a treasure.
David should be your only choice as a wedding photographer. Upon meeting him for the first time, we could tell that not only was he incredibly gifted and a consummate professional, he was also fun to be around. During our engagement shoot, his shot ideas were brilliant, and he had us constantly laughing (which was good, because we were both nervous).
When the big day came, David was instrumental in not only calming our frazzled nerves, but also moving things along. During the ceremony, he was completely unobtrusive, taking extra care to stay out of the views of our guests, while still getting remarkable shots. I'm still amazed at how he was able to get multiple angles of critical moments. From the photos, it appeared he had a second shooter, but it was only him!
David was excellent at corralling our very large family (the groom is the 7th of 9 children), and did so quickly, but with grace, patience, and professionalism. He captured all of the shots we had asked for, plus many more we didn't even think of. As the reception went on, David continued to capture amazing moments and beautiful images, while staying unobtrusive and discreet.
Whenever we look at our wedding pictures (which are in several rooms), we are taken back to our special day, and reminded of the love we share with each other. We have referred all of our friends to David, and will continue to do so. He is friendly and approachable, while at the same time hard-working and professional. Most importantly, David has an incredible gift for recognizing and capturing rare moments and beautiful pictures.
