No actual advice, just trust Dave, he will make you feel comfortable with the session as well as capturing the best images! Prompt, professional, and knew the area so he was sure to capture all the best angles. Worked with us to get our input on what we wanted out of the day. Also, was excellent with our 5 year old twins and incorporating them into as much of the session that they would participate in.Sent on 07/16/2016

We knew we were in good hands when we first met with Dave for our engagement pictures. He knew good locations to capture great photos, and was professional, yet friendly and put us at ease. He kept in touch with me throughout the planning. He called me a few days before the wedding to say when he would be arriving at the Commons and for me to just relax and enjoy the time leading up to the ceremony. Saying that made me feel comfortable and knew that it was a good decision when I selected Dave as my photographer.Sent on 10/25/2015

Dave and Heather from Amore Photography were absolutely wonderful. We met with Dave a little over a year before our wedding. For the first 30-40 minutes of meeting with him, he wanted to know all about us – how we met, our likes, our dislikes. It never felt like a sales pitch, unlike other photographers we met with. I got the sense that he truly wanted to get to know us. We got the package that included the engagement shoot, which I highly recommend because that gives you more time to get to know the photographer and for him to get to know you. He let us choose the location, which was great because I discovered a local sunflower field that I really wanted to go to for the shoot. Flash forward almost a year, and we met with Dave again to go over everything that we wanted for the wedding. He took copious notes and together we created a timeline for the day. The day of the wedding went smoothly. Dave and Heather made sure to keep track of the time and for parts of the day, we were even ahead of schedule. It was nice to have a few minutes to breathe and relax. They did an excellent job of capturing all of the moments we wanted. The pictures truly came out amazing and they took so many – we’re having a hard time narrowing down the ones that we want. We are so happy that we used Amore Photography for our wedding.Sent on 12/19/2015

David is a great guy who is clearly passionate about photography. Whenever we work with his clients, they are all very pleased with the quality of his work and say he's a pleasure to work with. We enjoy working with David at weddings since he's always so easy going, accommodating, and most important, he's always at the right place at the right time, so all those special moments are caught on film. We share the same laid back style and always look forward to weddings with David. He's simply just a genuine, nice person who loves taking care of his clients and loves his craft.
