Unbelievable! ❤︯

There is not a word written or thought spoken that can adequately express the professional quality and beauty of our wedding pictures produced on one of the most important days of our life. On a day when the bride is nervous and worried about every aspect of the wedding, this was one area that I did not have any concerns! David was a silent comforting person in the background capturing my every beautiful tender moment of our day. I cannot express how thankful I am with how he captured the emotion and true feelings from the moment we arrived until we left the country club… Without hesitation, I highly recommend this photographer for any event needs you might have!!!

Very Professional and Great to Work With

David did a great job keeping the wedding party non track and maximizing the allotted time we had with him. He was so very generous with his time and we so appreciated his suggestions and we are so glad to have him take photos of our sons wedding. I highly recommend him.
