Creativity, Professionalism and Perfection...
We worked with David for about a year and I can honestly say it was the best decision we made throughout the entirety of the wedding planning process. The level of service, professionalism and ultimately perfection in the final product blew me away. David had everything planned down to the smallest detail and his creativity ensured that the photos we truly our's and represented us as a couple. Throughout the 12 months we worked together David went above and beyond to ensure we were happy and never once pushed back on any request. We could not have imagined a better wedding day and I can honestly say David was a huge part of why it was so incredible.Sent on 08/06/2019

A perfect balance of talent and skill!
My husband and I took a long time to plan our wedding, knowing what was most important to us- with photography being at the top of our list. We live on Martha's Vineyard and are familiar with several of the photographers we could have worked with; David was an easy choice. From the moment we met him in his studio, David's balance of professionalism, passion and easy going character put us at ease that we were not only in talented hands but that he would help us feel comfortable in front of the camera. His style and skill matched our desire for a photojournalistic approach to memorialize our special day. We wanted to not only capture the spirit of our wedding day but also to have art to share and enjoy for the rest of our days. David and his assistant did just that. From scouting spots to photograph before the wedding to his enthusiasm for our many ideas to his excellent communication with us in the days prior to our wedding- making adjustments for a looming nor'easter- David was able to capture all of the moments and details, yet we barely noticed he was there. He helped us feel relaxed and natural. He kept us on schedule and despite the wind and rain blowing outside, found amazing picturesque backdrops and gave us some of the most beautiful photos we could have asked for that truly told the story of our day. In addition, we did a second photo session a few weeks after our wedding to get the outdoor shots we couldn't do in the wind and rain. David was accommodating, flexible, professional and enthusiastic and most of all, his work is amazing and truly speaks for itself. An absolute pleasure to work with, David captured our wedding in a way we will remember forever. Can not thank him enough!!!Sent on 12/15/2018

A true DELIGHT to work with
Choosing David Welch as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made in the entire wedding process! Firstly, he was extremely easy to work with. We met several times prior to the wedding and went over everything in detail. He answered all of our questions and made us feel calm and confident for the wedding day. On the day of our wedding David was so fun to work with. His calm demeanor totally set the tone. He was extremely flexible while always being cognizant of keeping us on track so we were sure to enjoy ourselves. We had the pleasure to also have him shoot our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. Upon receiving the photos, we could not believe the quality and the amount of memories that he was able to capture. We feel so lucky to be able to have such beautiful memories from such a special day. I can't say enough great things about David. He is talented, professional and truly a great guy.Sent on 11/12/2018
