About David Royal Photography

David Royal is a photojournalist with a background in art photography based on the Monterey Bay in California. Since he was very young he has used his camera as a tool to meet people and discover new worlds around him.

He approaches weddings in a photojournalistic style, unobtrusively shooting a wedding like documenting a story. He starts at the beginning, making photos of the couple as they are getting ready, and then covers the ceremony, reception and surrounding action and reaction. He focuses on key moments of the day as well as shooting a variety of portraits throughout the day.

In addition to still images and wedding albums he offers multimedia slideshows featuring interviews, natural sound and music all recorded during the wedding.

He is a former staff photographer with the Monterey County Herald. In addition he has freelanced for major news outlets including the Associated Press, Reuters, The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times. He has photographed many weddings in Big Sur, Carmel, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Salinas, Santa Cruz and San Luis Obispo. He has also covered weddings throughout the continental U.S. and Hawaii.

Thanks!
David

    David Royal was a fantastic photographer for our wedding! My husband tends to tense up in front of the camera, so we really wanted someone who could capture authentic, candid moments on our big day. We met beforehand to discuss what each of us wanted, and David Royal followed up via email a few weeks before the wedding, which was great because I was getting buried with other duties and obligations. On our big day, he arrived early and was our shadow, documenting our nuptials and reception. David Royal made sure to pull us aside to take advantage of beautiful sunset lighting, got all the requested shots on our photo wishlist (our families were difficult to coordinate, and he remained calm, cool, and collected), and he was even kind enough to give lighting tips to the girl I had running our DIY photobooth. Great guy to work with, and an SJSU alum!

    David was absolutely amazing! He was willing to stay later than planned, and made sure to get great photos! I would highly recommend him for any event not just weddings!
