I am Dave Jones, a wedding photographer based in Rochester NY and owner of Empire West Photo.
I am also a husband, dog dad, music photographer and musician. I love the Colorado mountains, classic cars and craft beer. I am welcoming to all unions and faiths. I want to hear your story!
I believe in the importance of documenting the start of your commitment to each other and the opportunity to spend the rest of your lives together. In your photographer search, finding someone you trust, someone who will create images of memories that you and your family will cherish for generations will allow you to focus on love on your wedding day

Absolutely incredible photography! Just hire Empire West. You will not regret it. Hiring Dave as our photographer was the best decision we made in regard to our wedding day.

What a dynamic duo! From the moment we met Dave and Melissa at our engagement shoot we knew we had the right team. They are relaxed and engaging yet consummate professionals behind the camera. Before our wedding day they were very thorough about getting a written record of all the "must-have" pictures and very smoothly wove them all into the flow of our wedding day. They unobtrusively moved around our ceremony and reception all day to get the candid shots and interesting angles that we wanted but you wouldn't know it at the time! We love the final photos and can't wait to share them with our guests and hang them in our home. We can't recommend Dave and Melissa highly enough to crystallize your memories for any event.

Dave and Melissa were the perfect photographers! I can't imagine having a better experience. We loved our entire photog experience, from our fun engagement shoot (in Buffalo, NY on a freezing March day!), to planning our big day, and especially having Dave and Melissa with us on our wedding day. They are fun to be around and are truly amazing at what they do! They made us feel comfortable and excited throughout the whole experience. We couldn't wait to see how our day looked through their lens(es). The photos as well as an album we ordered turned out better then we ever expected! I would recommend Empire West Photo to any and all brides!! An added bonus, we truly feel like we have made two new friends in Dave and Melissa. :)
Dave and Melissa are an amazingly talented team of photographers. I have worked with them on many projects, some of my favorites being retro-themed stylized engagement sessions! I love their work so much that I use it to promote my beauty business! They're extremely professional and work seamlessly together while always keeping it fun and relaxed... a dream to work with for weddings or any occasion.
