Look no further than Bigler Weddings!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my husband and I had to postpone our big wedding and we decided to plan an intimate ceremony with our immediate family at The Sagamore on Lake George. Planning this small wedding was stressful as there were so many unknowns about what the weekend was going to look like due to state regulations. Finding a photographer was at the top of my list - enter Dave Bigler. From the moment I spoke with Dave my whole outlook on the wedding changed. He was so caring, thoughtful and genuinely made me super excited for this small, intimate ceremony that I had never planned on having. He became part of our family during our wedding. Dave kept 6 kids under 5 years old entertained and focused for pictures (that in itself deserves an award). He made sure we got all the shots I wanted. Dave remained the topic of conversation amongst our family for the rest of the weekend, with everyone agreeing how special he made this experience for us. Dave is not only an amazing photographer with an incredible vision but also a really great man. If you are looking for a photographer, look no further than Bigler Weddings. This guy is the real deal and we could not be more grateful that he was a part of our wedding.Sent on 05/29/2020

I know this was not the wedding that you and Matt had planned, but I am so very happy with how pleased you two are with how everything came out. Pumped that we could have been a part of it! Thank you! - Dave

Dave and his team were amazing to work with! Starting with the engagement photos, he made my daughter and her fiancé feel so comfortable! He even happily worked with their little dog! And those pictures were wonderful, creative and gorgeous! We just got the highlight reel from the wedding and in less than 4 minutes he captured the beauty of the venue, the most important words that were said to the bride and groom and the happiness that exuded from them! I don’t have enough words to say how awesome Dave and his team are!! If I could give 10 stars I would!Sent on 08/08/2019

The Best Around
The Bigler Team is truly the best. His pictures & videos speak for themselves, but beyond that Dave and his team are just a pleasure to work with and be around. Throughout the entire process Dave was extremely organized yet very easy going.
When Dave's crew arrived on site the morning of our wedding, they brought such a fun energy that was so contagious. Throughout the day, I asked Dave a few times if we were on track or if we had time for a certain shot and his response was either "We are perfect!" or "Absolutely!" or "We'll make that happen". It is so obvious that Dave loves what he does and it was such a joy to watch him interact with his team and capture our perfect day. They are so dedicated to get each and every shot (even if it means hopping into knee deep water to do so)!
Dave's team is incredible. I cannot speak highly enough of their organization, professionalism, and fun loving energy. I cannot urge you enough to hire the Bigler team for your event, you will not regret it!Sent on 07/22/2019
Dave Bigler Photos + Films's reply:Kendall & RJ- Thank you so much for your kind words!! Our team loved capturing your day! It was such a pleasure to be part of the love you two share!

The very best in the business. No questions
Brides and Grooms when it comes to your special day, a picture speaks a thousand words. It is a captured moment that will be passed down for generations through your families. When it comes to your wedding you want the pictures to tell the story. Dave Bigler and his team are the VERY BEST at doing just that. Dave is not just a photographer, he is an artist. He will take your vision- those dream photos that have been keeping you up late at night-and bring them to life. His team is personable, understanding, detail oriented, flexible, and in love with what they do. Our wedding vision was brought to life on 1/5/2019 because of Dave Bigler and his team. I can not thank them enough for capturing every single photo we asked them to. BOOK THEM IMMEDIATELY!!! THEY ARE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS!Sent on 01/08/2019
Dave Bigler Photos + Films's reply:Mike, thank you very much for such a glowing review! Your wedding was so much fun, thank you for having us join in your day!

Dave Bigler & his team are phenomenal!
Dave and his team were phenomenal. Our entire experience with them was superb. They were professional and very organized. Dave was our photographer and he was so much fun. He let us have fun but kept us to our schedule while capturing all the moments before, during, and after our ceremony. Our pictures are absolutely amazing. I was pleased with every aspect of their service and now that we have our pictures - Oh my goodness I am beyond thrilled. They are a "must have" if you are searching for the perfect photographer!Sent on 01/10/2019
Dave Bigler Photos + Films's reply:Thank you so much for the review Melissa! Your family and friends were such a blast to hang out with, thank you once again for having us join in your wedding day! - The Bigler Team

Dear Juan and Jake,Sent on 07/23/2018
More thanks to come, but we just wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you ASAP. I honestly didn't even know what you were doing or where you were most of the time, but that's because we so completely trusted you as the amazing pros you are - we had zero stress! And I'm type A, so that says a lot :)
From laughing with my friends about my non-traditional getting ready music choices, working so well with our other vendors, setting up great shots, and all the sweet and silly moments we know you captured: Thank you. We wanted our wedding to a be a party in the woods with the people we love the most, and you guys "got it" and blended right in as the awesome people and videographers you are.
With immense gratitude,
Jen and Ben

Chris · Married on 06/16/2018
I can’t even begin to explain how amazing Dave Bigler and his team were for our wedding. From our first meeting where he laid out a timeline of our wedding to the last shot of the wedding night Dave and his team were great to work with. He is so organized that you will never have to worry about a single thing. Multiple status calls where every photo, location, and timing are laid out so everything goes seamless on the day of the wedding and you never miss a shot. We have been a part of several of our friends’ weddings with different photographers and Dave and his team are head and shoulder above anyone we have ever worked with. They make everyone feel comfortable with them and make it fun experience for the whole bridal party. Dave and his team have a great eye for finding the perfect photo or video and would make slight or subtle adjustments so everything looked its best. As the wedding was going on Dave was perfect about keep us updated on the timeline of the night and thankfully reminding us to eat! Dave and his team made us feel so special. All of the photos and videos we have seen look fantastic and we cannot wait to see the rest! We have had several family members compliment how incredible the photographers and videographers were during the wedding. Dave and his team are worth every penny and I would highly recommend them to any bride and groom.Sent on 08/02/2018

Stephanie · Married on 04/28/2018
Dave and his team are truly spectacular! We were living in Delaware during our wedding planning process, and Dave took the time to Skype with us to show us photo and video samples. We were blown away by the quality of the Bigler Team’s work, and before our conversation was over, we knew we just HAD to have Dave and his team for our wedding day! Laura was available to answer any questions we had, and Dave put together a timeline for us to follow for our big day. The Bigler Team was so helpful with making our wedding day absolutely perfect! Our wedding photos and video are absolutely beautiful, we couldn’t be happier! We highly recommend Dave Bigler and his team!Sent on 10/06/2018
Dave Bigler Photos + Films's reply:Steph and Matt- thank you so much for your kind words! We loved capturing your day!! Wishing you both all the best! - The Bigler Team
Laura · Married on 02/18/2018
From our first meeting, to our engagement pictures, to the follow up planning calls, to the actual wedding, Dave and his team were nothing but THE BEST. He made sure any picture I could want was taken, plus he just made the time together so much FUN! I cannot recommend him and his company enough.Sent on 02/20/2018

Teralynn · Married on 02/03/2018
Dave and his team are truly AMAZING. The professionalism and quality of their service was something even my guests commented on throughout the night -- saying they had never seen photographers so invested in an event while never getting in the way of the party!
Dave kept me organized and feeling calm throughout the day. He made our day so much fun and I can't thank them enough for all they did. His enthusiasm is contagious -- he even took us ice skating for some final shots to cap the night off (I had never ice skated before!)...we had a blast and are so happy Dave took us out of our comfort zone. This added more fun for our guests too, since most wanted to come out and enjoy the ice skating show. :) Dave and his team are the best and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for photography or videography services!Sent on 02/10/2018

Mariam · Married on 12/16/2017
To say that Dave and his team were a pleasure to work with is not enough. We loved his work but what really makes him special is his personality. He is such an amazing photographer and human being. . It doesn't get anymore genuine and professional than him. I'm big on organization and he had outlined our wedding day with us before we even booked him! We are very grateful for all of their help and support before.Sent on 12/27/2017
Dave Bigler Photos + Films's reply:Wow, Mariam, thanks for such an awesome review. Very kind words! I had a blast at your wedding and am so grateful that you had our team be a part of it!
Sarah · Married on 11/11/2017
Dave Bigler & his crew did the most amazing job at our wedding that we could have ever asked for. Not only was he extremely professional, he was also on the ball with his business skills. His photography is absolutely beautiful but he also does a great job keeping open communication & running his business. I find a lot of times it is hard to find both! We were beyond pleased and would suggest him to anyone who ever asked. He made us feel extremely special and worked with us to make our day & photos perfect!Sent on 03/19/2018
Dave Bigler Photos + Films's reply:Thanks Sarah! We had a great time working with you and Mickey! Looking forward to seeing your album come together so we can relive the fun! :)

Dave and his team (shoutout to Jake and Juan!) were all completely wonderful to work with from start to finish. We are so glad we chose them for our wedding and loved the final product! The video was perfect and the team was very accommodating to what we wanted the highlight to look like. Throughout the entire process, I enjoyed working with Bigler Productions - would highly recommend to anyone!Sent on 05/04/2018

Dave took the time to meet with us before we even booked him—he paid such close, personal attention; he made us feel like royalty. He went out of his way for our engagement shoot, and made instant friends with our new puppy. And he helped make our wedding perfect. He spoke with us over the phone and had Google docs to help us prepare for the big day. His expertise and familiarity with the venue even helped us set up our whole timeline of events. Dave is the kind of person who brightens a room, so there’s no one better for your wedding photographer. His whole team fit in like part of the family when we were getting ready. He showed me some pictures of the rings and stationary he took in the fall foliage, and the colors were so vibrant I asked if they were fake props—to which he chuckled and showed me they weren’t. He even has a Google Doc for after the event, so you can see your status in the queue for edits and delivery of files.Sent on 10/20/2017
Dave Bigler Photos + Films's reply:Thanks so much Beth! We had so much fun on the E-shoot down in the city and at your wedding. THANK YOU!
Erika · Married on 09/30/2017
Dave Bigler and his team are AMAZING! There is not ONE thing that they could have done to make our day run any more smoothly. If you are around this area looking for a photographer, DO NOT hesitate to contact him. I showed up one day just to check him out (completely out of the blue) and I am so glad I did. They were so warm and welcoming. The pictures and video we got back are beautiful and I get compliments left and right about how amazing my photograoher was!! We LOVED Dave Bigler and his team!!!

Dave Bigler and his team were AMAZING! We were part of a wedding that they had shot previous to our engagement, and we actually booked our wedding date based on their availability. I can't say enough about all of their team! Thank you Dave & Team for all of your hard work, and being such an integral part of our big day!!!Sent on 09/19/2017

Rebecca · Married on 09/09/2017
Dave and team are amazing! We met with Dave via Skype because we were living in Boston at the time. His expertise helped us put together a wedding day timeline as we were having our informational meeting. We immediately knew we wanted to book him for our video. The team was super organized and helpful during all of the planning, which put us at ease. Andrew and Kate were the video team onsite and they were very friendly and became part of the group! I appreciated the quality of the past videos on their website and our video turned out just as amazing. We received many compliments on the video and it is something we will cherish forever! We can't thank you enough for documenting our best day ever! I definitely recommend them!Sent on 01/10/2018
Leah · Married on 08/19/2017
Dave Bigler was probably the best vendor I hired for my wedding. He offers all of the best services (e-shoot, drones, video, same day edit, etc) and was incredibly easy to work with. Dave gave my fiance and I a sense of confidence every step of the way, ALWAYS going the extra mile to make our experience the best. Dave is just the kind of guy you want around on a hectic wedding day, paying attention to every detail and somehow making each interaction feel like it is the most important thing he has going on. We loved Dave and his wonderful team!Sent on 08/13/2017
Dave Bigler Photos + Films's reply:Leah, thanks for such an awesome review and so soon after the wedding! Now go enjoy your honeymoon! PS: Make sure to keep an eye on your email! :-)
Rebecca · Married on 08/18/2017
I cannot say enough amazing things about Dave and his entire crew!! My husband and I had a bunch of wild ideas and they just ate it up. They were just as excited as we were to make everything perfect. We had a photobooth, drone, video, photo, and the amazing thing called a Same Day Edit. Most importantly, Dave made everyone feel at ease and comfortable with their picture being taken. I am already trying to think of excuses to hire them again!Sent on 08/28/2017

Meaghan · Married on 07/29/2017
Dave and his team were amazing!!! I was so happy to find someone who did photo and video together and would create a custom package fit exactly for my needs! They were on point the entire day getting all our must have pictures as well as many more. They were so fun and easy to work with it was like we were working with just some more friends at the wedding!! They did everything we asked and more and I could not be more happy with the work they have done. It was absolutely perfect!Sent on 10/09/2017

Lisa · Married on 07/01/2017
My husband and I hired Dave's videography team. Right from the beginning, they were very easy to work with. Not only did we get the two videographers that were included in the package price, but we also had an intern helping out....three cameras instead of two! :) The whole team was very professional and it never felt like they were in our way. They seemed to be there to capture all of the most important moments. We received a quick teaser from them within a week of our wedding. We can't wait to get the rest of our video package, as we are positive it will be everything we are hoping for. I would definitely recommend Dave Bigler and his team to anyone looking for a videographer.Sent on 07/18/2017

Mallory · Married on 06/10/2017
What a fantastic experience with Dave Bigler & Team! From the first time speaking with Dave, we felt super comfortable knowing everything was going to go exactly as planned. Going into our wedding, we had many things we knew should be captured on video; vows, speeches, live music from family and friends, and Dave Bigler & Team did not disappoint! They were able to capture every little detail of our day with great quality video and such a nicely organized final package. Big shout out to Juan Soler for directing everything the day of and picking some great music for our highlight video. All in all, we could not be happier with our video and are so glad we hired Dave Bigler & Team to help us relive the fastest day of our life. Thank you all so much!Sent on 10/04/2017
