My husband I couldn't be happier to have had David as our photographer. Him and his staff were very accommodating and suggested a wonderful videographer. He helped us make the day run smoothly and captured some very special moments during our wedding. The timing of taking the photos was great as well! We got to enjoy every aspect of our wedding and didn't miss a thing. Thanks again for making our wedding so special. If your looking for a person that has very reasonable prices, works well with the bride&groom and helps in making your wedding day run smoothly, DES is the place to go.

David was great to work with throughout the entire process. We had a morning wedding and did not have much time for pictures between the church and reception. He set up a detailed schedule of when portraits would take place and worked with us so we could make it to the cocktail hour to enjoy it! The day of our wedding our photographer, Korin, was awesome and didn't intrude on the day. Our pictures turned out great and they even got a lot of shots that we didn't even know they took! I would highly recommend David.

Perfect. Literally I could NOT be happier with the services David and his team provided to me and my husband for our July 4th wedding. David from the start was prompt in his responses to my original inquiry, and was quick to set up a meeting with us. During the meeting David made us feel as if we were not just prospective clients, but friends. He's so personable, friendly and funny, and he puts you at ease. After the first meeting I didn't even look elsewhere and booked him the following day. The day of David arrived on time with his team, and he really helped keep me at ease and kept me on track. You have no idea how grateful I am for that! The day is already stressful and David really helped us both so much. His personality makes the day go by so smoothly and makes it fun. I got back from my honeymoon a few days ago and already I saw the sneak peek and I cannot wait to see the rest. My bridal party and parents also loved David and his team, and I can't wait to use them in the future for future events. I would highly recommend him, and I haven't even seen all of the pictures yet. That's how confident I am in him and his team. David, thank you SO SO much for all of your hard work. Joe and I couldn't be happier with the way our wedding turned out, and a big part of it was because of you. - Joe & Nicole.

Dave was awesome! He was great to work with and his pictures are unbelievable. We couldn't be happier. It was so hard to pick which ones would go into our album because there were so many great ones to choose from. I recommend that everyone use him!

David couldn't have been a more perfect photographer for our wedding. He was great to work with and his personality gave us great comfort on our big day. From day 1, he made us feel like we were his top priority and he was so accommodating with our every request. On the day of our wedding, he was very organized and knew exactly which pictures would perfectly represent our day. Our families and friends couldn't stop commenting how great he was! Our proofs turned out more perfect than we imagined and we can't wait to get our book back. We would recommend David to anyone and everyone.

Simply amazing. I am writing this review before I have even seen all of the wedding proofs, but I am so confident in David's abilities that I am willing to write this review now rather than later. From the very beginning of meeting David, my husband and I felt not only at ease, but felt as if David was a friend and not a vendor. He was excited to talk to us, answer any questions, and even give advice. I would email him with large scale questions right down to mundane silly things, and he always was professional and answered me very quickly. I got David's name from an old co-worker of mine who had used David for his wedding and my friend recommended that I get in contact with David. I am so glad I did. The day of the wedding, David and his team arrived on time and quickly and efficiently set everything up. Throughout the whole day, he made sure that we were comfortable and never asked us to pose in a way that didn't feel natural. In fact, he enjoys taking pictures that aren't run-of-the-mill. For example, me and my bridesmaids did a Vogue-esque type photo shoot for a few minutes. I haven't seen the proofs from that but I can assure you it was one of a kind and unlike every other person's wedding photos. During the reception, it was like David was everywhere and nowhere at the same time. He blended in seamlessly with the crowd - you literally couldn't find him, and then when you did find him, he was gone and taking shots from another angle. It was amazing. When I saw his blog where he put highlights up from my wedding, I realized he truly was just everywhere. He captured all these moments that I had no idea were even happening, and moments that I forgot about. My only regret is not hiring him to photograph our rehearsal/rehearsal dinner. I would have paid anything to get him there! I would not only recommend David to other brides, but I would highly suggest using him! You will not go wrong I promise you.

David and team played an integral part in making both our engagement photo session and wedding day an absolute success. From the moment we saw how David handled adversity during our engagement shoot, once when we had to cancel the shoot due to a parade going on where we’d originally planned on taking them and then the second time when our intended location was closed due to Hurricane Sandy repairs, we knew that we were dealing with a professional who’d be able to keep us calm during one of the tensest moments of our life. His kind and lighthearted demeanor has kept us smiling throughout the entire experience, from our first meeting with him through the delivery of our wedding photos. Beyond his team’s professionalism and compassion, the composition of his photography and his artistic vision helped beautifully capture the happiest day of our lives. Trust David, you’ll be in good hands and you’ll have amazing photographs to relive the memories for years to come. I’d recommend him to my friends and family any day!

David E. Starke helped us to make our wedding the Best Day Ever! From the moment we first met with him we knew he was going to be our photographer. He is so calm and relaxed, and that REALLY helps on your big day! Leading up to the wedding he was great to work with. He answered my millions of emails and all of my dumb questions without ever making me feel like a bother. The day of the wedding he knew how to roll with the punches. We had intermittent rain (and only outdoor places to take photos). He never made me feel panicked or rushed and helped to offset the hectic nature of the day. His photography style is amazing. I was amazed with him after our wedding day and even more amazed after we got out photos back. You get 700 photos back on a USB drive and ALL of those pictures printed on 4x6's in a lovely wooden box. Gorgeous wedding day keepsake. I never imagined we would have SO many perfect pictures. Not only did he do a great job at the portraits, but he captured so many candid moments which I believe really helps to capture the true feeling of your big day. David E. Starke Photography was the first vendor we booked for our wedding and was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Seriously, just go meet with him, you will understand.

I can't say enough about the photography services David Starke provide for my April 2014 wedding. David was professional to a T, but yet was able to relax and not make us feel posed or stiff with our wedding photos. My bridal party raved about him and was very impressed with the way he conducted himself and his creative angle on the shots. David got the shots we wanted and so many more. I recommend him for any event!

David and his crew were very professional, flexible and overall great people. We had a lot to cover but they handled it all seamlessly. They made sure to get each group of people we asked for and more. They also took this really amazing moonlight shot of us outside the reception. I can't wait to see the final book. I highly recommend this team!

I got married on March 21, 2014 at The Manor in West Orange, NJ. David came recommended my the Manor and he was the last Photographer we met, his pricing was reasonable compared to the others I had met with. We booked David because he was out going, fun, extremely personable and most of all his pictures were breath taking. We were getting married at night and it would still be dark out because of the time of year and we wanted out photographer that took good night shots. David's signature shots are nigh shots, just take a look at his portfolio and you will see how beautiful his nigh shots are. After speaking with him he had expressed that he doesn't really edit his photos just some minor things,that he feels it dates them, working as a graphic designer I agreed and loved the fact that he is a true photographer and just takes beautiful pictures. On the day of our wedding David was on time and very professional. Some of my guest asked if I had a photographer at all because he was not intrusive or in anyone's way. He understood that guest wanted to take pictures of us as well and didn't get in their way while still doing his job. I could not have picked a better photographer! Beautiful pictures! Awesome People! Exceptional Service!

I Highly Recommend him you will not be disappointed at all.

Dave was a complete pleasure to work with! He provided us with amazing engagement photos, and I really couldn't ask for more from our wedding photos. He was extremely professional and has a calming demeanor that comes in handy on such a high stress day. He helped keep us on time while managing to capture all of the special memories I requested. My friends and family are still raving about the quality of his work! At the end of the night, after his contracted time was up, he left to drop off his assistant. I was shocked when he reappeared to just check in and make sure I was happy as the second photographer closed out the night...this is a mark of true professionalism and a well-run business. By the end of our honeymoon, Dave had a wonderful selection of photos up on his blog for us to enjoy. The timing was perfect! And our proofs were in within a month or so! I think Dave is especially talented because he captured a lot of candid pictures and they are literally worth a thousand words. We will forever cherish the collection he gave to us, and we can't wait to see the finished album...it's taking so long to narrow down the pictures because all of them are so awesome! Thank you Dave, for so perfectly capturing our day! And sorry for the long overdue review :)

David E. Starke photography was the best decision we made for our wedding day. We met with several photographers of varying styles and personalities. We knew the night we met with David that we had found our photographer. He is easygoing, fun, and passionate about his work. That made the decision easy after seeing how great his work is. Our engagement photos were beautiful, and so at that point we knew our wedding photos would be the highlight of our day - and they were. We got the photos back within a month and were blown away by David and his team's ability to capture the emotions and little moments that take you right back to your wedding day - priceless. Just absolutely awesome and beautiful photography. You'd be making the right choice choosing David E. Starke photography, without a doubt.

David and his assistant were absolutely incredible. Not only did they take amazing pictures - they were so professional and fun to be around. He captured so many amazing shots yet you never even knew he was there. He has a great sense of humor and made what can be a stressful day fun and stress free. He arrived a half hour early which was very much appreciated as I didn't have to worry about him being late. David made the entire planning process easy as he was very responsive and easy to work with. I would absolutely recommend David Starke and his assistants!

David originally photographed our friend's wedding last year & after seeing their results, we decided to use him also & we weren't disappointed.

I already know of 2 of our wedding guests who have referred him to their friends. Definately go with this guy. You won't be disappointed.

David and his assistants were amazing not only during our engagement shoot, but during our wedding day as well. His ability to stay calm is very appreciated and welcomed as a wedding day can be stressful and sometimes a bit hectic. Every moment was captured and not a detail missed which set my mind at ease. Will definitely be recommending!

The most amazing thing about David Starke is that for all intents he was invisible - there was not a minute that I felt we were not fully engaged in the wedding as opposed to dealing with pictures. However he captured every moment, every reaction, every candid - most of which we would have missed. There were even shots people did not believe were not staged, or even that they were actual photographs (they were that amazing). I cannot recommend David and his staff enough. They are the absolute best.

He sent us samples of photos as quickly as 2 days after the wedding, and posted several more before we were even home from our honeymoon! Highly recommended if you are looking for a great photographer who will be easy, fun, and capture wonderful fun candid moments.

I would definitely recommend him; he is a great guy, does incredible work and so very reasonably priced.

I can't say enough positive things about David Starke and his team! They did an amazing job of documenting our wedding on New Year's Eve. I envisioned a vintage style wedding for myself and my husband and David did my vision justice by capturing just that. Our pictures are absolutely beautiful and I couldn't have asked for more. David's personality is so down to earth and easy going - which is exactly what you want on the day of your wedding. Our wedding was 1 month ago and I already have all of my beautiful pictures in my hands!! What more could you ask for? I am definitely recommending David to my girlfriends who are getting married in 2013. Thanks again!

My husband and I chose David to be our photographer after our friends recommended him, and we are so happy we did! He was exactly what we were looking for in a photographer: friendly, relaxed, flexible, and, most importantly, talented. We aren't big fans of posed, formal photos, but we're not really artsy enough to embrace the super photojournalistic style, and we found David's style to be a good compromise. He was also super responsive to my many questions, helped me figure out the timeline for my day (which was such an invaluable help, I can't even begin to thank him for that), and was totally chill on my wedding day, not ordering people around or trying to control things. Best of all, he took beautiful photos - and we picked them up less than a month after the wedding! All in all, working with David was a great experience, and we're very glad we chose him to be our photographer. Highly recommended!

Let me start off by saying that I knew I wanted to use David Starke photography for our wedding even before we met with him, based off of the website and beautiful wedding portfolios. We met with other photographers before making a final decision and I could not be happier.

David is an amazing wedding photographer! From our first meeting, to the engagement shoot and all the way up to the wedding day, David was a delight to work with. He responded quickly to all questions from myself and my family throughout the entire wedding planning process. His professional, friendly and easy-going manner made posing for hundreds of pictures easy and enjoyable.

As our wedding day approached, David and I collaborated on a timeline of the day which worked out perfectly (without feeling the least bit rushed)---the entire bridal party including myself, the groom and all immediate family were able to enjoy our entire cocktail hour and wedding reception.---not an easy feat, as I have been in several bridal parties and have never seen the bride and groom attend their cocktail hour because pictures are not done.

Our proofs were ready as soon as we got back from our honeymoon (unheard of!) and we are thrilled with them---I have no idea how we will narrow them down for the wedding album. We have the perfect blend of posed portraits, group shots, and photojournalistic- style candids. There are plenty of every type of picture. The entire day was captured beautifully.

I can't say enough good things about David Starke Photography! We are very happy with them and we are sure you will be too.

Let me start off by saying that I knew I wanted to use David Starke photography for our wedding even before we met with him, based off of the website and beautiful wedding portfolios. We met with other photographers before making a final decision and I could not be happier.

David is an amazing wedding photographer! From our first meeting, to the engagement shoot and all the way up to the wedding day, David was a delight to work with. He responded quickly to all questions from myself and my family throughout the entire wedding planning process.

David was the photographer for both our engagement photo shoot and our wedding and we have been blown away by the resulting photos. He has a knack for bringing people out of their shells and putting everyone at ease which can be quite difficult with the stress of a wedding! In addition to being incredibly personable, he is the ultimate professional. The quality of his work speaks volumes about his passion for photography and ability to catch his subjects in their element. I cannot speak highly enough about our experience with him. Thank you David!

Let me preface this by saying that I probably spent almost 100 hours looking at photographers' websites and blogs before reading a review on the knot about David E Starke Photography. I was immediately drawn to what I saw online. I set up an appointment to meet with Dave and we knew as soon as we met him that we wanted him as our wedding photographer. His calm, cool, and collected attitude was what we were looking for. I cancelled the appointments I had with other photographers when we left our initial meeting. Dave was extremely responsive throughout the whole process. He usually answered all my emails within a few hours of receiving them. The week of the wedding we had an hour long phone conversation planning and going over the details of the day. The day of he was on time and where he said he would be along with the 2nd photographer and assistant (who were both awesome as well). Dave kept things like light and cracked jokes to lighten the mood. He is quite funny. Our bridal party loved him! The best man even recommended him to another one of our friends for his wedding! Our pictures came out amazing! We have so many favorites. My mother is difficult to please and she is very happy with the quality of the pictures and the images captured. We are having a hard time choosing 60 pics for our album. I would recommend Dave in a heartbeat and without hesitation to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. Not only is he a great photographer, he's a great guy. We hope to be able to work with him on something in the future!

We could not be happier with our choice of David Starke (plus the second photographer) for our wedding photos. He was so easy to work with, very responsive, and made us feel extremely comfortable with him. He made sure everything ran smoothly, and kept us on our intended schedule for the day without being pushy or overbearing AND while being very fun, and entertaining. He had our bridal party cracking up with some of his comments while shooting. David was able to keep me calm throughout the day with his laid back personality and professionalism.
We received a sneak peek of our shots on his blog just a week after our wedding (the day we got back from our honeymoon which was a great surprise) and it got us so excited to see the rest. And now that we have all of them, we are so happy with the results! He was able to capture some amazing shots. We had so much fun going through the 700+ photos and reliving our wedding day. Another plus is that he stayed throughout our entire reception. The only problem I have now is that I don't know how I'm going to choose which pictures to use for the album because there are so many great ones.
I would highly recommend David Starke Photography. He has a great personality, and makes the photo sessions so easy and fun and he produces awesome work!

David E. Starke photography was our wedding photographer. David is truly talented! My husband & I chose not to have a videographer so the photos were particularly important to us since they would be all the memory we would have to look back on our wedding day. Not only were the pictures beautiful but he was amazing. He is a doll, and very funny too I might add, so taking the portrait photos was a breeze. Dave was on time, professional, pleasant, and there for every moment. I can not even believe how beautiful our photos came out. They made me laugh, cry & everything in between. He is beyond talented and has such a great eye. He captured every detail and moment. Because the pictures were such a HUGE part of our day I couldn't be more thankful that we chose David E. Starke to be our photographer. (I also forgot to mention our engagement session...he had us laughing the entire time. We took our engagement session near Hoboken, NJ & he made every situation work. I LOVED his creativitey. Because it was cloudy he got some awesome pictures with an umbrella, he got great shots with the NYC skyline as the backgorund & he took us down the road a bit and got some really awesome pictures in town. We had such a varitey of photos, one better than the next)

My wife and I were married at Il Tulipano in Cedar Grove, NJ in July of 2012. We searched around for several photographers and came across David E. Starke. We were so impressed with our initial meeting that we called him back immediately and requested that he be our photographer. David was simply fantastic. He was on time, professional, and straight forward with everything that he did with us. My wife and I went with a second photographer because we had 170 people. (It was David's partner and it was totally worth it.) David was so much fun to work with and made the whole picture taking process enjoyable. He was the type of guy you would want to invite to your wedding. Honesty, flexibility, and professionalism. There is not much more we could have asked for. David was so patient with us throughout the process and his pictures were amazing. I would recommend David to anyone! Our pictures were beautiful!

He is very timely with answering emails and easy to contact through phone calls, eager to answer any questions we had. He is very accommodating and met all of our requests without any problems. He was a pleasure to work with, with his friendly and outgoing personality. We researched many photographers and found his charges were very reasonable. And most importantly, his work is fantastic! He took wonderful, very high-quality pictures that we have gotten tons of compliments on, and he captured everything we wanted. Looking at all of the pictures he took brings us right back to our wedding day. After all is said and done, all that really remains from your wedding day are your pictures, so you want them to be perfect. We are thrilled we went with David and now have hundreds of amazing pictures from our special day.

David was very easy to work with. Leading up to our event he met with us and discussed how the day would unfold. I was worried that some photographers can be overwhelming, taking too many photos and can be pushy...This was not the case with David, he was very laid back, we hardly even noticed he was there. He captured some really nice moments, we have so many great photos I don't know how I will narrow down the ones I like for an album. He really has a great eye for knowing what will work in a photo and we are very happy with the results. I think he did a wonderful job, I would recommend his services highly.

David was absolutely amazing to work with. We knew we wanted to choose him as our photographer two minutes after meeting him. We had our engagement pictures done by him as well and they were beautiful and we had a great time getting to know him. The day of the wedding he showed up early to capture every small detail of our day and stayed until the reception cleared out to make sure nothing was missed. Our wedding pictures are the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen. All of our guests are still talking about how great the photographer was and they didn't even realize that he was there taking pictures most of the time! We would highly highly recommend David to anyone...we already have! Thank you for everything you did to help make our day perfect.

David, thank you and your partner for the amazing job on our wedding day. My sincerest gratitude for making my wedding day one in which I will hold dear forever & never forget. It was so comforting to see you doing what you do best and your very discrete signs of comfort throughout the night. You truly are the epitome of professionalism. The pictures are beautiful. My family and I are enamored by the pictures…You have made it so difficult for me to pick 90 pictures or to pick out the family enlargements. The pictures are phenomenal (the lighting is sick). Thank you so much for capturing all the special moments of my dream day.  Every picture tells a story.

David Starke and his assistant couldn't have captured our wedding day any better through a lens. He made the picture taking process fun and exciting... He was flexible and let us take pictures that we wanted at the spur of the moment. From when I was getting ready until the last minute of the reception, they kept on snapping picture's that really told the story of our wedding day. He took a variety of shots and even went outside during the Northeaster storm and in return we have the most magical pictures, with big beautiful snow flakes falling down! During the reception people danced literally for 5 hours, and they took the best action shots that look like they came out of a magazine. I recommend David Starke and his team to any bride wanting great quality and outstanding service. Thank you, David for adding your touch of creativity and professionalism through out the whole process of working with us. You ensured that we would have great pictures and a beautiful album that we will cherish forever, and our hopes and wishes came true!

Kindest Regards,

David Starke and his assistant couldn't have captured our wedding day any better through a lens. He made the picture taking process fun and exciting... He was flexible and let us take pictures that we wanted at the spur of the moment. From when I was getting ready until the last minute of the reception, they kept on snapping picture's that really told the story of our wedding day. He took a variety of shots and even went outside during the Northeaster storm and in return we have the most magical pictures, with big beautiful snow flakes falling down! During the reception people danced literally for 5 hours, and they took the best action shots that look like they came out of a magazine. I recommend David Starke and his team to any bride wanting great quality and outstanding service. Thank you, David for adding your touch of creativity and professionalism through out the whole process of working with us. You ensured that we would have great pictures and a beautiful album that we will cherish forever, and our hopes and wishes came true!

Kindest Regards,

David Starke is definitely the most wonderful wedding photographer you could get. He took pictures of some of our friends' weddings prior to ours, and we fell in love with his artistry and creativity, as well as his ability to capture the most magical and fun moments. Not to mention, Dave is a wonderful person and a lot of fun to have at weddings. We began to consider him a friend even before our wedding. He took beautiful engagement pictures of us and our wedding photos are so much more than we expected. I get compliments every time I show them. Dave was professional from the first moment, making sure we got everything we wanted (even when I had no idea what I wanted). Another really important factor is that Dave is able to charm the pants off of just about everyone, from your cranky grandfather to an officiant in a very bad mood (yes, our officiant was in a bad mood). Everyone loved him as a person and as an artist. I can't recommend him enough!!!

Jay & I could not have asked for a better photographer. Did not miss a single picture opportunity but never interrupted the flow of the wedding. During family pictures and bride and groom session, made everyone feel comfortable and made everything fun. Entire collection of family and friends loved the quality and variety of prints to choose from when we picked up the proofs. Jay & I highly recommend David E. Starke Photography for any event.

My wife and I spent a great deal of time searching for the perfect photographer for our wedding and met dozens along the way. We were drawn to David because of the excellent reviews and references we had for him and the excellent quality of his online portfolios at www.davidestarke.com/ (which I strongly urge you check out). As soon as we met David we knew he was our guy, he's very professional, friendly and has a great sense of humor and made us both feel very at ease. He helped us select a package which gave us everything we were looking for. David was very accommodating for our engagement shoot in terms of time/date and worked with us to select the prefect venue to give us the types of images we wanted. We were delighted with the outcome of the shoot and it built our excitement for the wedding. We couldn't have been happier with the results, our pictures are amazing, capturing the most special intimate moments of our wedding in a very natural way; the hardest part has been narrowing down to 90 images to fill our album. He also created a beautiful on-line album which captured the story of our wedding perfectly, we've shared this with close friends and family and brought a number of them to tears. We also received numerous compliments during our wedding about the way David interacted with our guests. I have and would recommend David to anyone considering hiring a photographer for any event.

Between my fiance and david, all i did was laugh the day of our engagement session photo shoot. Being on front of the camera like that was very awkward for me, but Dave made it a lot of fun and I immediately relaxed. He is the perfect combination of professionalism and fun.

When ever I see a review with all 5 out of 5, I get a little suspicious. Especially when I was a bride planning the biggest day of my life. Well, I must say that Dave truly deserves the 5 out of 5 in every category. He has been pleasure to work with from the day I booked him and still is today as I'm working on my album and thank you's. Dave and his team were so great the day of the wedding, they arrived right on time, set their stuff up and began their magic. They captured the most beautiful moments, some of which I didn't even see happening (which by the way turned out to be some of our favorite shots). I got so many compliments from my guests about the photographers and how they were all over the place snapping shot after shot, they were so impressed. It's great to hear that when you've worked so hard planning for that day. I could'nt have been happier working with Dave and the outcome of my pictures. They are absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to hang them all over our home! I highly recomend considering David Starke as your photographer for your wedding day, you will be not be disappointed!

Often people don't believe when you put down all 5's on one of these surveys bud David E. Starke actually deserves it. He was helpful, attentive, professional, accomodating, but most importantly, EXTREMELY FUN to work with. The pictures turned out gorgeous and I believe it was because he made everyone laugh and made the experience enjoyable for everyone. I have been in Weddings before where the photographers made the experience completely brutal, which is why Dave was such a breath of fresh air. If you truly want someone who will make your experience as painless as possible while simultaneously capturing the joy of the day-which he does better than anyone I've ever seen-David E. Starke is your man.

Dave took beautiful pictures that captured every bit of our wedding including little hidden moments, he really captured the reality of our wedding. Dave was extremely professional, on time for every event, flexible and very very easy to work with. Not only is Dave a phenomenal photographer who really captures who you are, I also feel that he went above and beyond by becoming my confidant throughout my whole wedding weekend. He has a very calming trusting nature that relaxes and brings out the best in you. I couldn't recommend Dave more for any occasion!

From the moment we met David (on the recommendation of a photographer with a global art world reputation and whose works are in major museums), it was a great pleasure to work with him. He is organized, efficient, clear, conscientious, and highly responsive. Most importantly, he did an exceptional job over the course of two days during our "wedding weekend." The photos were perfect and captured us, family members, guests, and the setting beautifully, both in formal as well as more "casual" shots. David took the time to get to know us and it shows in his work.

When I found the website for David E Starke Photography, I knew right away that I wanted him to shoot our wedding. After doing some price shopping, I found him to be very reasonably priced, so I was thrilled that we could go forward with hiring him. The pics on his website and especially in the blog section are absolutely breathtaking. His pics are artistic and creative; I found myself so excited to see my husband and I in them. Not only does Dave do incredible work, he is a breeze to work with....something I wish I could say for my other vendors! He is very professional and laid back at the same time, making working with him a very pleasant and stress-free experience.

David Starke is a fun, creative photographer and we loved having him as our wedding photographer! It's only been 2 months since our wedding, but we already have our wedding album underway! Not even a week after the wedding we were emailed a few "sneak peek" pictures, and just a little over a month after, we received all our proofs! My sister in law was so pleased with him that she is now using him at her upcoming wedding. Even though he is super busy, he will always get back to you ASAP and really gives you the freedom to do and try out what you want. Brides, you will not be disappointed using David E.

He gave us helpful suggestions and made sure he was there to capture every important moment leading up to the ceremony.
During the wedding I barely noticed he was there, but yet he managed to take several hundred candid photos that truly represented how much fun we had with our guests.
David is friendly and professional and was a pleasure to work with. His rates are competitive and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

We found David and his team through a co worker of my wife, and we could not have been happier. He and his team were a pleasure to work with throughout the entire day, which was one of the hottest of the year I might add.
We went with the addtional photograper for an extra charge and we were extremely happy with that decision for the $500 extra. The 2nd photograper was able to capture my groomsman and I before the wedding while David worked with my wife. The 2nd photographer was also able to capture addtional moments at the wedding that a single lens would not have been able to do.
We recieved a sneak peak of our shots on David's blog just three weeks after the wedding, and then our entire package of 700 prints and thumb drive containing JPEGS and printable images only a month after the wedding. We are in the process of selecting our 60 images for our album (not an easy task out of 700 awesome photos), and have had so much fun reliving the day through David's shots.
All in all, a great person to work with during what can be a stressful day. his responsivness to any questions we have had leading up and after the wedding have also been great. I highly recommend David and his team for your special day.
