Damien Smith Photography is simply one of the best! I've followed the work of Damien Smith for years and was thrilled that he was available to travel for engagement photos and my wedding. You're only married once and it's important that your memories are captured in a special way. Damien's photography told my love story visually just as well as I do vocally. Damien Smith Photography catered to my needs on all levels and aided in making my day unforgettable. I also really appreciate the extra exclusive features that I received like slide show of images during reception, customized wedding image preview cards, and many other extra goodies. I expect to use him throughout the next chapter in my married life to capture beautiful moments.

A true professional, Damien has an amazing eye for capturing unique and original shots, while making the process relaxing and fun for everyone. I know we’ll be showing off both the engagement video/slideshow and poster print he created for years to come! You definitely can't go wrong with Damien!

I selected Damien Smith to photograph my parents 50th anniversary, let me say that we were not disappointed! Damien and has staff arrived on time and were completely professional. He was even able to handle my stubborn uncle who shadowed Damien the entire day. (Sorry Damien) LOL! My parents were sooooo happy when they received the pictures, and so was I!!! My brothers and I shared the cost for his services as a gift to our parents. I can only say that I believe we received way more value then we paid for. I highly recommend Damien Smith to anyone in need of a wedding photographer, or in my case, a anniversary photographer. :) Thanks Damien!

Damien smith was amazingly wonderful for our big day. I had already had an engangement portrait done but it was nothing like what HE did with my fiance and I. Damien was very professional and he was extremely flexible with our schedule for he did our sitting on the weekend of the 4th of July. I absolutely loved my picture montage with some video he added in there. The video was words that my husband and I aid to each other but had not heard until the wedding day.
I truly and delighfully recommend damien. He was Wonderful..

Sincerely,
Martha

I was very fortunate to have selected DSP as the photographer for my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration. With such an important formal event at hand, it was important for me to have every aspect of the event documented appropriately. My parents still look at the photographs and smile every time they see them. They are able to re-live the celebration every single time and they keep commenting about how good they looked!

Can't say enough about Damien's services. You really get what you pay for, and he was worth EVERY CENT. There are some wedding things you can pay less for, and it's "whatever," but there are other things you really can't be cheap on, and wedding pictures is one of those things - - because you will NEVER get those moments back. We have absolutely NO regrets on Damien. He went over and above - - the extra mile - - ALL THAT.

Damien Smith photography provided service on a level that I didn't know existed. He took engagement pictures with poses of my bride and I that I later saw in new editions of wedding and fashion magazines 3 to 4 months later. My wife and I were so impressed with our engagement photos that we then hired Damien Smith photography to be our wedding photographer. Damien's creativity, style, and personality are a huge plus; especially since I don't like to take pictures. He is always professional and his services felt more like a friend doing you a favor than you paying him for a service. Damien Smith photography has given my wife and I studio photography without being crammed into a small studio room. Damien Smith photography will give you studio-like pictures in any environment and I personally choose to use this company for all future events.
