I just had my wedding, so I haven't seen the photos yet. David and his assistant made my life very easy. They were on time, and willing to wait for distracted, not ready, me.Sent on 07/21/2015
They were a pleasure to with. He made a great effort to make sure the light was right, which is the main reason I booked him.
He truly has an artistic vision, and I know our photos will be beautiful.

David was outstanding! Having an great photographer was one of our priorities for my wedding and we are so glad we chose David. He does excellent work and took amazing photos, both on our wedding day and at our Korean ceremony/rehearsal dinner. I forwarded his photo slideshow to our wedding guests and everyone commented on how beautiful all of the photos were. He has an amazing eye and is truly an artist. David managed to capture our wedding day perfectly!Sent on 01/18/2011

I loved working with David Barss. If one of your main priorities in your wedding is to have photographs and an album that you can look at 50 years down the road and still be awed and taken back to that perfect moment – his company will do that.Sent on 01/18/2011
The photography packages might seem expensive but his services are well worth it. For me, that's saying a lot. (and I am a very thrifty and budget-oriented type of person. I stayed to my budget within pennies).
My personal experience was wonderful. They captured all the right moments. His creativity is above par (very important aspect for me). He was able to understand my needs as a client, when I couldn't even articulate what I wanted. For me personally, photography was probably the most important aspect of the wedding. I was more apt to cut back my budget on almost everything else, to ensure I had the best photographer. With David Barss, you will get the best.
Not only is his work amazing, but his work ethic and professionalism is exactly as expected. He is easy to work with, punctual, and worked very well coordinating with all other vendors. He was very workable & accommodating, and held up to his word - a very rare trait these days.
The finished product was above and beyond my expectations.
I highly recommend him if you want beautiful, creative, and timeless pictures.
Love working with David! Always a pro who develops a great connection with his couples. Looking forwward to working together again soon!
David is terrific! I have watched David shoot formals, the ceremony and the reception in over a dozen weddings, and I have seen his finished work. He knows his stuff technically and is on top of each wave of new technology. His images reveal true creativity, taking advantage of all aspects of the setting for each wedding. He knows how to work with his clients and their families and guests so everyone has a good time. Fully HALF of Wedding Photography has nothing to do with photographic skills, but with how the photographer deals with people. David is easy-going and adds no stress to the day. He works quickly and skillfully to create perfect photographic memories of one of the most important days in your life.
I have worked with David on many weddings over the past 10 years I have been in Portland. He is extremely low-key and laid-back, yet at the same time seems to be everywhere at once. And then to receive the artful images after the event and relive the outcome of all of my hard work is a joy.
