My name is John David, but you can call me JD. My style of photography is a blend of the simple, elegant and fun-- less rigid and more natural. I strive not only for great photos but also to capture my clients for who they really are.

So talented and awesome to work with!
If you're looking for a super talented, easy to work with, out-of-the-box thinking, creative photographer to capture your special day, BOOK JD NOW! JD was with us every step of the way--he helped guide us when we didn't even know what we were looking for, asking us the right questions to get a sense of our style and vision. We were so at ease with JD! He's an absolute professional and on top of it, just such a calming presence...he was able to calm me during some of my meltdowns day of as well, haha! Thank you so much for capturing the best part of our quirky, multi-cultural wedding celebration, JD! The night was a blur, but I get tears looking at the photos you took, truly capturing the joy and love felt by all that night :) We were so lucky to have you!

Top notch in every way!
JD was an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE to work with and such a talent!! I can't gush about him enough. My now-husband and I (both architects) got married in a home we had just finished designing and building, and the wedding felt like an extension of ourselves and our design work together. We kept things small, were relentless about every last detail, and worked incredibly hard to hand-pick a team we felt amazing about. We struggled for a while to find a photographer who could capture not only the wedding but also the incredibly symbolic place that framed the whole occasion. I can say with the strongest conviction that JD was a perfect choice for us.Sent on 05/28/2020
First of all, he was so kind and helpful from the first time we spoke on the phone. We immediately felt great chemistry with him, which is so important, especially when you're having an intimate celebration and want everyone present to feel like a special part of the festivities. And JD was just that! On the day-of, he made us feel so comfortable, as though he were a long-time friend. He had a great sense of humor, and you could feel his genuine excitement and passion for his work. All this helped make the whole day incredibly fun and joyful, as it should be! And his efficiency while taking the formals (which for our 55-person wedding ended up being basically everyone there) was super impressive. He even came by incredibly early on the morning before the wedding to take some stunning architectural shots of the house itself, which was such a special treat.
And most importantly of course, the photos are absolutely gorgeous!! We have already shared so many wonderful moments looking through them, and we know they will only get better over the years. What a wonderful, priceless gift we've been given to be able to revisit such an incredible day, captured so artfully.
We would wholeheartedly recommend JD to anyone looking for professional wedding photographer who can not only skillfully photograph all of your beautiful moments, but also capture something a bit more nuanced—the overall feel of your big day, the personalities of the couple and guests, that special something that makes your wedding completely unique. He is a true gem of a wedding photographer!

I can’t say enough great things about JD. I have had the privilege of knowing him as a friend for about seven years and have seen him in at least four other weddings. JD is an incredible person and a truly inspired photographer. He is one of the most talented people I have ever met. He could not be more professional, helpful, or encouraging when he is shooting a wedding. He set us at ease, helped us move through the whole night, and had so many creative and breathtaking ideas and photos. He was palpably excited the whole time. It was obvious that he was happy to be there and was having a great time making beautiful photos for us. It was so much fun to watch him work because you can see the gears turning the whole time for how to create the most amazing and unique photos. He had the best ideas and executed them all perfectly. All of our guests talked for weeks about how amazing he was and how they could not wait to see the pictures. He got us a few pictures the next few days and the rest of the pictures shortly after. We did not have to wait long for our pictures. He was very professional and easy to work with on the price—no haggling like some other photographers I spoke with. We would go back and may triple if we had to—the pictures were that good. His work is flawless and breathtakingly beautiful. Some photographers have all their weddings look the same, but he really does capture the spirit and feel of each wedding very precisely and beautifully.
JD brings the same level of attention to detail, care, and thoughtfulness to his work as he does to his friendships. He was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. If you hire him, you will be thankful you did for the rest of your life. It is a pleasure and an honor to know him and to have his photos forever. He is—hands down—the best photographer you can hire.Sent on 08/21/2019
