Dave traveled all the way to Mexico to photograph our wedding and yet again did an amazing job!! We were devastated when there was a storm the day of the wedding and figured I wouldn’t get the pictures I wanted all along…But Dave managed to take such beautiful pictures of us regardless of us being in the lobby instead of beach front. He also had us to get dressed in our wedding dress/suit the next day for an outdoor photo session since we didn’t really get any pictures outside at all on the wedding day! Which was really nice of him because he was technically on vacation at that point lol. I really liked how he re-created pictures that I had found on Pinterest, I just emailed him a few and he knew just what to do to make it happen. I’m beyond impressed by his work! He is very talented. I’m so glad I picked him to be my wedding photographer!! If you are looking for someone who is professional, flexible, responsive, and creative , Dave is your guy!! 🙂

Let me start by saying that Dave was so amazing during our wedding day that guests were literally chanting his name as he left at the end of the night. Not joking. We actually used Dave for videography, as we already had a family friend doing the wedding. Not only did Dave travel the 2 1/2 + hours to the venue, he showed up early, captured it all, and stayed until the very end of the night. He was such a pleasure to work with – calming and fun. I never felt like I “had” to do anything, and he followed me around my crazy pre-wedding photo shoot with ease. After the wedding, I expected to get the edited video within a month and it was done within a week (if that)! And let me tell you, it was perfect! The editing was beautiful, the music choices perfect, and worked with us through the process and changed a couple things I requested to be changed. It completely captured our wedding day and the joy an love behind it. And fun! I could not have imagined the video would be more perfect or more beautiful. Would DEFINITELY recommend Dave – he is a fun and great guy.

Dave McIntosh was a joy to work with… Dave was very much in to making sure I received the kind of pictures that I wanted..We did not want a lot of posed pictures, except for a few in my dress before the ceremony.. we wanted more realistic pictures of the day as it progressed from start to finish.. Dave captured many many moments of family and friends enjoying the day as well as the happiness on our faces as we enjoyed our wedding day.. You didn’t know that Dave was around.. yet somehow he managed to capture shots we were not even aware of.. Pictures wer fast to come for viewing and his pricing was very reasonable.. I would highly recommend Dave McIntosh !!!

It was a pleasure to work with Dave for my wedding. His professionalism and attention to details was amazing. He really made me feel special on my special day. What I like most was his a ability to capture the moments that meant the most to me. I told him that I wanted to focus on how much fun my family was having, and he did. And when I asked for a few edits to include folks having fun on the dance floor, he made it happen.

It was also cool that he was always a step away but I never noticed him. I was afraid that it would be overwhelming having someone follow us with a camera the entire time, but I never really noticed him and was surprised that he captured everything. Thank you so much Dave.

Dave and his crew were amazing!! They provided EXCELLENT service, were timely, friendly and responded promptly to all questions and concerns. We were extremely happy and satisfied with our engagement and wedding pictures and we are so happy we chose them to capture our special moments. They were all well dressed and provided service with class and professionalism. The quality of the raw photos and retouched photos were impeccable. We continue to get compliments from friends and family on our pictures :). We would highly recommend them and request their services again in the future.

We used Dave for our wedding photography and our engagement photo session. We couldn’t have picked a better photographer. He was there from the second we started our day until we were all ready to leave, capturing every minute. He is extremely fast with his responses and very professional. We had met with other photographers to interview for our wedding but as soon as we met with Dave, we knew we found the man we wanted to capture our special day. We have received so many compliments on our wedding photos. His work is amazing. He always manages to get you your photos within days of your event, not months. He is worth EVERY penny. If you’re thinking about booking Dave for your wedding or any event, know that you are booking a professional who comes prepared for anything with backups for all of his equipment and that you won’t have any photography worries on your big day.

If you are looking for a quality photographer Dave is your guy! We really didn’t know where to start to select our wedding photographer but we wanted to ensure that we felt comfortable with them. After our first meeting with Dave we knew he was the perfect fit. He was extremely accommodating from selecting an area for engagement pictures to changing up our photo locations the day of our wedding since it was record rainfall that day. Dave stayed with us throughout our entire wedding and didn’t leave until we did to capture our end of night pictures especially because the rain finally stopped. Our family and friends rave about our wedding photos and we couldn’t be happier!

— Emily

Dave and his staff were UNBELIEVABLE to work with in every possible way. The quality of work, professionalism, and focus on making our day special was exceptional in every way. And the best part was Dave was a fraction of the cost of most other photographers we evaluated. He and his team went above and beyond the call of duty to make our day as special as it could have been. Thanks, Dave!!

— Michele

David McIntosh and his staff were so wonderful to work with in every possible way! Dave, Aj, & Kyle did a fabulous job on capturing the best day of our lives. We were so pleased with their professionalism, the quality, and their focus to execute astonishing work!! Dave did an amazing job with our engagement session and I would highly recommend to all newly engaged couples. It’s a perfect way to get to know one another prior to the big day!!! Thank you so very much for being part of our special day! We were so lucky to have you capture our love story!

I cannot sing Dave McIntosh’s praises enough, but I’ll try…my Father was a professional photographer in New York, so obviously I grew up with very high personal standards for picture quality. Dave’s photos were the only ones that caught my eye, and which my Fiancee and I instantly gravitated towards, and this was after attending several Bridal expos. His work was unique because it was both clearly planned out, but also brilliantly spontaneous. He’s kind, helpful, and skilled. We met with Dave, at our venue so that he could scope it out and get a clear idea of what kind of shots we wanted, and make suggestions for other shots we might like. He not only spent about 2 hours for our initial consultation discussing with us and my parents what type of looks we gravitated towards, while showing us examples of his work, but then stayed on with us afterwards for about 45 minutes just to chit-chat; he said that part of what he loves about his job is getting to know people. This, I feel, is what makes Dave’s work so special, because you can truly see through our photos that he knew us, and moments that were important, and he was able to capture them because he anticipated them. In addition to that, we also met a second time for 2 hours, again, to finalize details. After that, we were in constant contact through email, and Dave had us write up a timeline for the day, so he could be prepared to capture each moment, and he did. He was with us at the hotel for our “Getting ready” shots (running back and forth from our rooms) from 12PM until after 11PM at our venue! All of this was included in the package; the value of this man is unreal! Each time I go through all 1550 shots, it’s like getting to relive the day! If my father were still alive, he would’ve been the one shooting my wedding, no doubt, but I could not have asked for a better substitute, and I know Daddy would be thoroughly pleased with our photos, and that’s just about the highest praise I can give.

Dave was wonderful and his services were very affordable. He was one of the few photographers that would give us all the digital photos rather than buying sets or individual downloads. He was friendly and professional. I’d recommend him to anyone I know looking for a photographer.

Dave photographed our wedding and engagement session. He was extremely flexible and professional. All of our photos turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined. We’re still getting compliments from the guests about how great they thought our photographer was

-Latoya,5/7/16

Dave and Pete were absolutely fantastic. I had a lot of things going wrong on my wedding day but Dave was definitely not one of those things. In addition to being a great photographer, Dave also helped my bridesmaids and I through some of the chaos. I am a darker skinned black woman and sometimes pictures do not capture our complexions well. Dave’s pictures of all of my family and friends were wonderful. There were no pictures with just “teeth and eyes”! If you are like me and paranoid about this, hire Dave without question.

-Akara,6/11/16

Dave did an amazing job with wedding photography. He was actually recommended to me by another bride who used him at her destination wedding. He was very professional and responsive to all of my questions and inquiries. He did a great job capturing special moments from the time we were getting ready until the last few minutes of the reception and even offered to take more pictures after the reception. I would highly recommend him for photography and videography. The photos I have received are beautiful and I can’t wait to see the rest of the retouched photos. I would highly recommend using Dave for wedding photography/videography. He was on top of everything and was very easy to work with. Overall, we had a great experience working with him

DAVE IS A PHENOMENAL PHOTOGRAPHER!!! I WOULD BOOK HIM AGAIN IF I COULD! OUR WEDDING PHOTOS TURNED OUT BEAUTIFUL!!!

-8/3/16

Booking Dave as our photographer had to be one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding. In addition to our wedding, he did our engagement shoot, during which he spent at least 4 hours with us, trying to capture as many settings and emotion as possible. As two people who can be very awkward in front of the camera, he makes you feel very comfortable and never rushed. Throughout the entire process, he was always accessible and responsive to emails, and very accommodating to our requests. On and after our wedding, we received many compliments on his professionalism and attentiveness. Then, he was able to get all of our photos back to us before we even returned from our honeymoon, and they were absolutely beautiful. I cannot say enough good things about Dave. If you are looking for top professionalism and exquisite snapshots of your special day, Dave McIntosh Photographics is the way to go!

-Leah,8/6/16

Dave is extremely professional and easy to work with. His laid back personality made it fun and comfortable when shooting our engagement photos. It rained and was foggy on our chosen date. He offered to reschedule but that was our only available date. Whatever worries I had about the weather Dave eased them within two minutes of meeting him at location. He is truly the best at what he does. We had a wonderful Photoshoot.
