With Kodak in my backyard, photography naturally became part of my life at a young age. Surreal Photography began in 2003 as the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. Over the past decade, I have photographed weddings, school pictures, sports, family portraits, and landscapes around the Western New York region gaining a lot of knowledge and skills. Over that time, I have found a passion for Wedding Photojournalism. Photographing almost 100 weddings in the past 12 years, I have enhanced my skills at capturing the smallest details to the deepest emotions of this monumental day. I am committed to helping to create a comfortable atmosphere so that the best possible photographs can be taken to capture the memories of YOUR special day to be shared for years to come.

I am based in Rochester, NY however I am willing to travel to other regions (Buffalo and Syracuse).

New this year, I am implementing a money back guarantee. If you're not thrilled with the photos, I will refund your money.

Give us a call today to discuss how I can help preserve your special day forever...

Relive your Dreams...

David is one of the most talented photographers we have ever had the privilege of working with. He has created timeless photos of our family milestones. Not only is he extremely talented but professional, responsive, flexible and so kind to work with. His expertise and eye for the perfect moment captured on film has given us cherished memories to enjoy over time. He is very attentive to detail and takes pride in his work. He has an eye and talent to capture the moment In time with a click.... we will never use another photographer as long as he stays in this business. We could not be happier with the quality of his work and his ability to deliver. We have had David take family pictures, wedding photos, and senior portraits for our family. I recommend him 100 percent.

David is amazing! My husband and I are not super creative, so he jumped in and got some amazing shots that I would have never thought of. It was really helpful to do the engagement session to get an idea of how we photographed (and it was free which is a plus). We also got a second shooter for a couple hours on the wedding date. She also did a great job, and it gave us plenty of time to get group and individual shots done.

David is very professional, friendly, and extremely accommodating. He helped us with a post-wedding shoot to get some photos we couldn't get on our special day because of the weather. He had some great ideas and made the most of the conditions for our shoot. The quality and variety of photos are fantastic. He made it a fun shoot, even for our not-always-patient 8 year old daughter.
