David & Josh have their own unique approach to wedding photography and their style changes with you. They are known for those jaw-dropping shots that you would see on the cover of a high end magazine mixed in with those natural, intimate pictures of the two of you.

Don’t worry they aren’t all serious! We like to have a lot of fun and get everyone on the guest list involved in the photos.
