    David was amazing! He was very patient, adaptable to our needs and efficient when taking photos. We will use him again when we need our baby pictures done!! The price and value of the photos were attainable as well as reasonable!

    David took wonderful nontraditional wedding pictures. We were hard clients since we gave no direction just asked for lots of photos.

    David Payne is wonderful. My photos were absolutely gorgeous and I have never seen a wedding album like ours! He took way over 800 photos from the beginning of the day through our reception, and everytime I look at them I feel like I am reliving the day. Definitely would recommend his services to anyone, worth every penny and more!

    David Payne did an exceptional job shooting our wedding, reh. dinner, and my Bridal Pictures. We couldn't have been happier. Not only is he professional, but also a pleasure to work with. He worked very hard coordinating meetings, shoots, and emails while I was planning my Knoxville Wedding from California!

    This photographer was very professional. He does great work and a very smart choice to hire. We live in Charlotte and he is from Knoxville and he still made great accommodations for us. His packages are a great deal and wonderful quality. Would recommend to a friend!!

    My husband and I had the absolute BEST experience with David and his wife Debbie. He was prompt with all communication and production of the photos. His prices are VERY fair and reasonable. He is great to work with and has fantastic skills. I am so happy that I found him to take our wedding photos. The photos and album he designed are truly incredible.

    I would recommend David for any type of event - especially weddings (big or small). His talent and personality cannot be matched! It was so easy to get along with him.

    I definitely hope to use his services again in the future!

    David Payne is incredibly talented. He took all of our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures and everything turned out amazing! He was very easy to work with, dependable and did an unbelievable job taking, editing and displaying our pictures. We absolutely loved all of his work and everyone is blown away whenever we show them our wedding album. I promise you will be very happy if you entrust David Payne to preserve memories of your special day. He's fantastic!

    David was an amazing photographer. He was very comfortable to be around and it made for awesome pictures. My husband and I will definitely be using him again for more family pictures and pregnancy pictures when the time comes!

    Loved the pictures. Our album was amazing, and David was extremely good about making sure we were satisfied with the pictures we received. Our family and friends couldn't believe the quality of pictures we received for the cost! I've told several friends about him, and we will probably be back to him for maternity pics farther down the road. :)

    David did an AMAZING job on our wedding. He was so flexible and easy to communicate with, if he missed my call he would call back within the hour and he was very quick with emails. He was creative and worked hard to make sure we were happy. Everyone that saw our pictures said they belonged in a magazine. David was the only photographer I met with and I would hire him again in a heart beat.

    I would use him again. David took beautiful, high quality pictures and he gives you digital copies of them all on a fancy flash drive. He is very professional and nice. He ended up giving us an extra hour for free and I'm not sure why.

    The only negative is how much he asked my opinion of pictures on the wedding day - my brain was mostly fried and not functioning so I did want to make decisions. But he sure does let you take the reins of what pictures you want.

    Also, the pictures are available for everyone to see and download for free! My family really appreciated that. The prints from his website come on high-quality photo paper and are very cheap - starting at $0.35 (plus shipping).

    David was a great photographer! He's not overly friendly, instead of mingling with guests, he takes his work seriously and the results are lots professional pictures.

    David was great! He made sure everything I asked for was done and was so nice. His prices were very reasonable when a lot of photographers in Knoxville are very over priced. And we got are pictures back pretty fast. I would definitely recommend him to capture your big events.

    David shot my engagement pictures and wedding last August. I LOVED our engagement pictures. He made it very easy for my husband and I to act ourselves during the session. He did a great job with the one on one aspect of the session. He also shot our wedding. Overall a good experience he was very quick to respond to emails and request during the planning process.

    We got some good photos but should have paid for two photographers instead of just one. David seemed rushed and unenthusiastic about being at our wedding. I feel like it shown through a lot of the photos.

    David Payne Photography's reply:

    Hi Laura,
    So sorry to hear you were less than excited about your photos. Your correspondence sugested that you were very happy with your photos “They are great! Thank you! ” I am a little perplexed with your review. I wish you would have contacted me. As I remember you were very rushed and members of your wedding party were late which did delay things. I am very enthusiastic about my work although your wedding did have several challeges including getting a wedding party of 23 people ready on 2 houseboats and the logistics of moving the wedding party and yourselves to a scenic area to shoot as you requested. There was little I could do since everything was done at a Marina and there was no where to really shoot a group that big. If there is anything I can do to make your experiance a better one please let me know.

    As I remember you did not want the expense of a second photographer nore was there much room to work the number of guests, 2 videographers, and, I believe it was your niece all shooting pictures at the same time on a dock. I do feel I was in a rush to meet your timeline. I had little input into that. Please let me know what I can do to enhance your experiance and make your experience with me a better one. Dave
