    When choosing our wedding photographer my husband and I had pretty high expectations. David J Studios exceeded those expectations completely. From the very first meeting we had with him we knew he would be perfect for our wedding. His fun and laid back personality make him a joy to work with...not to mention he is an extremely talented photographer. Our wedding photos and album came out wonderful and I wouldn't change a thing. He was very easy to work with and addressed any concerns or questions I had with extreme professionalism and genuine care. I would recommend David J Studios to anyone who is looking for photos. We were so happy we will be going back to him for our newborns first pictures after she is born in December:)) Thank you David for all that you have done!

    My husband and I set a wedding date just 6 months after he proposed. So started planning right away. The first thing we wanted to book was the photographer. We met a few but something just didn't seem to click. Then we had an appointment with Dave. I cannot describe how wonderful Dave and Katlyn were! From the moment we sat down with Dave we knew he was 'our' photographer. He was very detailed and went through what we should expect from him or any photographer for that matter. We we're stoked when Dave and Katlyn showed up on our wedding day. Dave was very calming and helped me (the bride) when a few things weren't happening according to the agenda. He talked things through with the other vendors and got things back on track. He was like a planner and a photographer in one! It was just incredible. He was so personable with all of our friends and family. Not to mention that his photographs were more beautiful than we ever expected. We will definitely recommend to friends and family and will most certainly use davidjstudios for all of our future photography needs! Thank you again for such a beautiful outcome!

    There are so many great things I have to say about David J Studios that I hope I do not forget anything. David was the first and only photographer that we met with. He made us feel so comfortable that our perfect day was going to be captured with perfect photos, that we felt the need to look no further for a photographer. Every time we met or spoke with him it made us even more excited about our special day. Our engagement photos were a blast and he made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and we loved every minute of it. Seeing our engagement pictures made us look even more forward to our wedding pictures. He took special care to make sure he didn't miss anything on our wedding day, and even though we were running on a very tight schedule because of some late arrivals of the bridal party, he was still able to get every shot we wanted and he made it work for us! We even added an unexpected stop to get photos in between the wedding and the reception and we still got everything we wanted. We couldn't be more happy with our pictures and when we got our album... well let's just say the sheer beauty of it brought tears to my eyes! On our wedding day he made sure we had everything we needed and checked on us every chance he got. We have tons of family and friends just rave about how beautiful our pictures are and love the coffee table able that we got and how it just the neatest album they've seen, because they haven't seen anything like it before. I've been happy with every print we've ordered, our album, our canvas, everything! We cannot thank you enough for the outstanding, professional job that you did! I hope I didn't forget anything!!! :)

    WOW!!! That is what you will be thinking and saying from beginning to end. Please take it from me... I am extremely picky and hard to please. With that being said, David pleased me every single time we spoke on the phone, met in person, took photos (engagement and wedding), and reviewed our photos. I told my Husband after the first call and meeting that David J was the guy to go with hands down!!! We both like him so much. His assistants are awesome as well. They ALL make you feel like family and stay on top of everything. He guided us through the entire process... how to stand, where to look, how to position ourselves...things we would have never thought of and things that no other photographer told us about. He was there for so many extra little things that got us out of what could have been major binds. If I had to go back and do everything over again I would without a doubt pick David J! We will definitely hire David J for future photography needs! Our engagement photos and Save the Date pictures were AWESOME! We got so many compliments on them. The Save the Date is one of my favorite pictures. We got creative with our props and David got creative as to how the photo was taken. We had many laughs at our engagement session which made things feel natural and out of that came awesome photos. Wedding Day came and once again David stepped up to the plate and made our Wedding Day A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! The shots that were captured will forever be treasured. We recently wrapped everything up and finished our album. I am beyond happy and so is my Husband. I would not only recommend David J just for Weddings, but for any photo needs. His studio is filled with amazing photos... engagement/wedding, family, pregnancy, newborn, birthdays... he does it all. We are looking forward to working with him in the near future again.

    My husband and I were extremely happy with David J and his staff. My husband has a very unpredictable schedule and they took great care of us while working around his schedule. We meet David at a wedding show and knew right away that we wanted to have him as our photographer. David was very interested in getting to know us and find out exactly what we wanted. He was more than happy to give us suggestions/ideas for all aspects of our wedding. We had a Jewish wedding and David was great when it came to capturing all of the unique portions of our wedding. He made sure that he knew exactly how the ceremony was going to go so that he could capture each moment. David and his staff went above and beyond the day of our wedding. David and his staff are wonderful at being the photographer while helping coordinate and ensure everything goes smoothly. My husband and I had several members of the family that tried to overstep their bounds when it came to who was going to be in photos. We were really impressed how David handled those family members and ensured that we got the photos that we wanted and had requested. After going for our wedding album review my husband looked at me and said "we will definitely use David for any other photography needs in the future!" We were extremely satisfied from start to finish with David J Studios and will highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer.
