We’re David and Drexelle.

We’re not only here to capture each moment and to celebrate your incredible love story. We’re here to inspire people like ourselves who were jaded about love through incredible imagery that celebrates love and marriage – lifelong, lasting.

Russell and Cara are hands-down the top notch wedding photographers who are talented, passionate, fun and take good care of the clients. Even better: they are punctual, timely, and easy to work with. We initially found Russell's work after scouring the web for wedding photographs at our exact venue. -- Our wedding venue was unique (as it has 100% artificial lighting) so it was crucial for us to find photographers with proven experience at this place.
There are a lot of reasons why we like this talented couple so much, but I want to highlight three, which I think are important for couples to know:

1. Style. Russell and Cara's photos are modern and elegant. They are pros w/catching the moment and details. Each photo is like telling a story, making you feel you are experiencing those moments. Moreover, the couple is professional and great throughout the whole process of providing guidance on location, and natural yet flattering poses. The quality of their photos stands out.

2. Professional. They are extremely experienced in coping with unexpected logistics / situations on our wedding day to make sure these nuances won't affect your photo quality. There are tons of unexpected situations that may happen, and there ARE (unfortunately) unplanned situations.

3. Energetic and fun to work with. This dynamic couple was very energetic, professional during our engagement photo session and on the busy wedding day. They did their best catching every moment of our wedding. Moreover, they communicated with us in advance and on the wedding day to ensure they were on the same page about the timeline, about the order of the shooting, and style. Russell/Cara bring such great energy and we all had so much fun taking pictures with them.

We highly recommend Russell and Cara to anyone. My husband and I were so lucky to have had them photograph our special day!

From beginning to end, David and Drexelle were a dream to work with. We told them our vision for the engagement photos and our special day and they were right on board. What I love most about them is they're extremely personable and really make the day all about you. Before shooting the wedding, they send you an extremely comprehensive questionnaire that asks about you as a couple, special things you want to capture the day of, names of your bridal party, etc. They really make the day all about YOU!

Our engagement photos were taken in Downtown LA at the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Grand Park. I cannot believe how much they made us look like supermodels. The whole session was so much fun as they made us laugh the entire time! The photos were all so amazing that we had a really difficult time choosing photos for our save the dates...so much so that we actually had two versions.

Our wedding was at the San Antonio Catholic Church and Richard Nixon Library. Dave and Drex arrived on time and quickly split up between my husband and I to capture us getting ready. They truly captured how much fun we were having with our bridal party in the most natural yet glamorous day. They were able to capture the unique personality of every person and the work that we put into all the details. We just received our wedding photos and all i can say is WOW. My mom couldn't stop screaming, i keep getting notifications of likes on facebook and instagram, friends keep texting me about how amazing the photos are...just omg. guys. why haven't you booked them yet? They're just that amazing.

Whatever vision you have in your head, Dave and Drexelle make it happen...they make it better! And on top of them, you get great friends to boot :)

Amazing engagement photo session yesterday with David and Drexelle. My fiancé and I were so comfortable we forgot we were having our pictures taken. The morning after the photo session we woke up to two beautiful preview images and we couldn't be more happy and satisfied with the final images. Can't wait to for the remaining engagement photos and for the our wedding photography. We would highly recommend DPARK photography for all those looking for something special and unique for your big day.

We had a wonderful time using D. Park photography for our wedding and engagement photos. Everything was absolutely perfect. These photographers are very kind, patient, artistic and organized. We did not have to worry about a thing on our special day, they had everything taken care of. We had a vintage/old hollywood wedding and they captured this look perfectly, they were also a lot of fun to work with. I highly recommend them to any couple looking for great wedding photos!!!

I am so grateful, blessed, and happy that I was able to have D Park as my wedding photographers. They're based in Orange County, CA and my wedding was in Oklahoma City, OK. They are my dream photographers and I have been following their photography blog for years. It was such an unexpected blessing and dream come true to have them come over to Oklahoma City to photograph my weddings. Some people thought I was spending lavishly to fly photographers from California to Oklahoma, but once they met these photographers they fell in love with them too and could understand why every penny of that expense was worth it. D Park photographers are amazing to work with and they are beyond just my photographers. They have been a great support team. Many friends and guests thought our pictures came straight out of a magazine cover. They are so wonderful to work with and are very attentive to every detail. I would hire them again for any future events. They are passionate and talented in their work and great to work with, the combination of traits that make the perfect vendor.

Russell and Cara (who are now engaged themselves!) shot our wedding, and we really appreciated how professional and warm they were. We're definitely not the kind of couple that likes having formal photos taken, so they kept it a little more casual, and I think that will make for better, more natural photos.

I can't wait to see the full set!!

Update: We got the full set about a month after our wedding, and we're so happy with how they turned out! And we have SO many shots to choose from...the beauty of digital. :)

If you looked up every positive descriptive word in the dictionary, that would describe the type of company D Park Photography is, the type of work they produce, and the personality Drexelle and David have. We originally had photos taken by a photographer that seemed to have what we wanted for a reasonable price. Unfortunately, we got less than what we paid for. In the end, it was a horrible experience that left me scarred to trust another photographer. Wanting to not be depressed about bad engagement photos, the search began as my husband inquired with one company after another. Then, the key thing that drew us to D Park was DISNEYLAND!!!

Drexelle and David knew their way around Disneyland like the back of their hand. They took us to spots that fit our theme, they used mirrors, lighting, windows, etc to really change up the images that they shot (they were not shy to try out creative ways to take photos). And, were very friendly and conversational that the day felt like Sam and I were hanging out with friends! Their personalities really helped us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and we weren’t shy to be silly or romantic.

The other bonus to having D Park as your photographers is that they will help you figure out your attire for the shoot. I have definitely no fashionista and was having issues figuring out what to wear and how to do my hair. But Drexelle was ready to give me suggestions to help me not only look beautiful, but also feel natural.

Overall, you CANNOT go wrong with this company! These two will take photos that will blow your mind away and melt your heart! You can truly see the passion they have when it comes to these photos and they are truly worth the money! I’ll be honest, after my bad experience, it is worth the investment in hiring professional photographers that not only have experience, but produce that quality work that will make your jaw drop and that is what D Park does! Well worth EVERY PENNY!!!

Drexelle and David were the natural choice for our wedding photographers. The last two things we needed to book for our wedding were the photography and dj. D&D were on our radar already, having seen their work on display at our venue and knowing them from elsewhere. We were not disappointed in any way! They are the most professional duo there is, and their work is second to none. Our wedding photos were absolutely amazing and it is all because of their artistic eye and creativity. Some of us in our wedding party were pretty stiff (including us) and you would never tell from the photos. They made it fun and it turned out wonderfully. Their work is very professional and everything they do is top notch. From the email correspondences, one-on-one interactions, finished product, etc. 5/5!

Drexelle and David are the most amazing, talented, creative, professional, dedicated, hard-working, and genuine photographers EVER. All our family and friends who interacted with them on our wedding day had the same praises for them! They are the sweetest, most inspiring couple, and we are so grateful and blessed to have had such awesome photographers capture such a meaningful time in our lives. We have spent hours and hours going through our wedding photos, and can’t believe the amazing ways in which David and Drexelle captured our special day. Throughout the planning process, they were super-responsive and beyond helpful, and made sure to point out any details on our timeline that we might have missed or that needed clarification. I didn’t realize how hectic and overwhelming the wedding weekend would be, but David and Drexelle made sure that everything went smoothly and remained calm and professional and even managed to keep everyone laughing and smiling throughout the entire wedding. They are the most talented and professional photographers we know, and before we met them in person, I pretended we were already friends because I was such a big fan of Drexelle and David. Now we are real-friends and not just pretend-friends, and I even cried when we had to say goodbye. We highly recommend D. Park Photography, as they are simply the best.

My fiance, now hubby, was very specific on what type of photographer he wanted. Coming from an artist and creative background, he didn't want your typical wedding portraits. But something more interesting and stylistic. After looking at some blogs, he came across a few photographers that he was impressed with their work...one of them being D Park Photography. We meet with a few different choices, but after meeting Drexelle, we knew we had found our photographers. David and Drexelle are absolutely amazing. Not only are our pictures everything we dreamed of and more, they are sweetest couple and so great to work with. All of our guests and our venue were extremely complimentary of them as well! Our only problem is that there are too many fabulous pictures to choose from! I will miss working with them, now that my wedding is over. You won't be sorry if you chose them as your photographers...they are worth every penny and then some!
