David was outstanding! Having an great photographer was one of our priorities for my wedding and we are so glad we chose David. He does excellent work and took amazing photos, both on our wedding day and at our Korean ceremony/rehearsal dinner. I forwarded his photo slideshow to our wedding guests and everyone commented on how beautiful all of the photos were. He has an amazing eye and is truly an artist. David managed to capture our wedding day perfectly!

I loved working with David Barss. If one of your main priorities in your wedding is to have photographs and an album that you can look at 50 years down the road and still be awed and taken back to that perfect moment – his company will do that.

The photography packages might seem expensive but his services are well worth it. For me, that's saying a lot. (and I am a very thrifty and budget-oriented type of person. I stayed to my budget within pennies).

My personal experience was wonderful. They captured all the right moments. His creativity is above par (very important aspect for me). He was able to understand my needs as a client, when I couldn't even articulate what I wanted. For me personally, photography was probably the most important aspect of the wedding. I was more apt to cut back my budget on almost everything else, to ensure I had the best photographer. With David Barss, you will get the best.

Not only is his work amazing, but his work ethic and professionalism is exactly as expected. He is easy to work with, punctual, and worked very well coordinating with all other vendors. He was very workable & accommodating, and held up to his word - a very rare trait these days.

The finished product was above and beyond my expectations.

I highly recommend him if you want beautiful, creative, and timeless pictures.

We selected David to help photograph our wedding. He was AMAZING! Despite somehow getting everyone in (we had around 220 people) he made sure he had time to capture us in various moments and points of time. His pictures are like art work and some of our most prized possessions.

He was able to balance his artistic instinct with more traditional pictures as well as his ability to use color, B/W and Sepia.

We often look through his pictures and they never cease to amaze us. We have gotten several compliments on his work and are always happy to refer him to other members of our community.

We are extremely happy with his work and his professionalism as well as his customer service. He was extremely patient as we took our time to select the photos we wanted in the album and he gave us just the right amount of coaching and his opinion.

We would trust David with any event in the future and plan to use him throughout what will hopefully be a long list of happy family occasions for us!

David was extreemly professional, has a jounalistic approach rather than in your face, we barely knew he was there and he didn't miss a thing. The pictures David captured were amazing, more than we could have ever dreamed of!

Upon first meeting David we knew right away that we wanted him to photograph our wedding. He had a laid back but thorough way about him that instantly put my neurotic anxious mind at ease. His work is priceless and I find myself flipping through our wedding photos and admiring them frequently. He was able to capture the funny, the sweet, the priceless, and magical moments of the day that seemed to go by way to fast. We feel lucky to have had David there to give us the gift of being able to see all the little things we missed. The pictures took a bit longer to get to us than planned but it was worth the wait once we saw them!

David was more than I hoped for. Not only was he incredibly flexible with our wedding day schedules but he offered us valuable advice and insight on the most important day of our lives. Even in the most intimate of settings we never felt his presence to be intrusive or uncomfortable. Thanks to his amazing abilities we have captured many memories that we can revisit for the rest of our lives.

When setting up the budget for our wedding, my husband and I decided to prioritize, and therefore spend the most money on, the things that would outlast our wedding day...our rings and photo/video documentation. This turned out to be one of the best decisions we made.

To be sure we had the right photographer, Ken and I conducted many interviews. Ultimately, the quality and style of David Barss' photographs won us over. David's creative eye produced simply breathtaking shots with a great variety of lighting, shadows, mood and atmoshpere. We asked for edgier, documentary style shots and he delivered. He not only focused his camera on us, the bride and groom, but managed to get beautiful shots of nearly all our guests as well. Because we had established a 'home-use' agreement, I received the digital negatives and can therefore print as many photo's as I want whenever I want.

In the end, we chose to spend more money than we initially planned on our photos, and we couldn't be more pleased that we made that decision. After receiving our photos and comparing the quality of David's work to other photographers, it was SO worth it! We couldn't be happier.

...and if anyone is looking for the ultimate photo/video team, hire David Barss and Greg James of Solstice Video together. As friends and long-time colleagues, they work effortlessly together, produce fantastic results and we had such a good time wokring with them both.

Thanks for being such a fun photographer to work with David!
