David and his team worked wonders on our wedding day. David's personality and attitude is what sold us on his services and I am so glad I had someone like David with me on our wedding day: calm, relaxed, funny, everything you want from someone who is following you around while you act like a crazy person with rollers in your hair! David and his team were a great addition to our wedding day!

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.

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. Read less

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.
