About

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

The best videographer out there!

Hiring Dave as our videographer was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. He was great to work with up to the day and the video is better than I could have imagined. Dave has an amazing eye for shots and had great ideas. If you have a chance to hire him for photography or videography, I highly recommend him. We will definitely use him in the future and I have recommended him to my friends already! Thank you so much, Dave!

Dave was Phenomenal!

Dave was absolutely wonderful as our photographer! He took the time to meet with us to see what we were looking for in our engagement photos and again for our wedding photos. I really wanted a snowy vibe for the engagement photos and he worked with our schedule to get the perfect day. We took photos in multiple locations in Rochester and he made us feel at ease and we had a blast (which shows in our photos). Our wedding day was windy and then rainy and then sunny again and Dave never missed a beat, giving us flawless photos. He got every small detail we wanted and was careful to highlight the parts that were most important to us. EVERYONE who attended my wedding commented on how personable he was. He made the day so enjoyable and I couldn’t imagine using anyone else!

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.
