David J. Owen Photography is a Minneapolis-based wedding and portrait photography studio serving Minneapolis, St Paul and the greater Twin Cities Metro.

I love taking photos. I feel lucky that it’s my job to collaborate with clients to create unique, stunning images that will last a lifetime.

Whether I’m photographing your wedding day, your rambunctious two-year-old, or anything in between, I want people to look fantastic and like themselves. For me this means combining candid interactions with artful composition and radiant lighting. I mix method and madness to create the perfect shot.

For couples looking for a wedding photographer, remember that without amazing photography to document the day it does not matter how much you spend on your dress, the venue, or the cake. Too often I talk with couples that cut corners on their photography and regretted it later. Your wedding photos should be works of art that you return to again and again to relive the past and find joy in the present.

I truly enjoy getting to know my clients and hearing their stories. From early consultations to final products, I partner with clients to create a shared vision for their photography experience. Then I work hard to deliver images that exceed expectations.

I look forward to working with you to create beautiful photographs that you will cherish for years to come. I hope to hear from you soon! Read less

We couldn’t be happier with the quality and selection of photos we received from David J Owen Photography covering our September wedding. From the planning stages to the finished photos, we felt completely taken care of and had no stress or doubts that everything would run smoothly. David was able to capture the most beautiful moments! The quality of his photos is top notch and we are truly grateful that we will always be able to look at these photos to remind us of our perfect wedding day.

David was wonderful to work with! He is an incredibly skilled photographer and created exactly the types of images we were looking for... natural, artsy, capturing the essence of people. He was very good at communicating with us and keeping us on track with what needed to be done. His affable personality made it a joy to spend time with him. He seamlessly blended into the background at the wedding while still photographing every important moment from many angles. We are thrilled with how the photographs turned out. We would highly recommend him!

We met David at the Grand Social Tasting at our Wedding Venue, up till meeting him we were set on not having a photographer at our wedding. After meeting him though we knew we had to do it. His packages were a great bang for your buck. His work that he had displayed on his table was amazing!!! We loved the albums and were still interested even though he was from the Cities and we were getting married in Two Harbors. He was it! We are so happy with our decision! We would not have our memories in such an amazing way if it was not for David capturing them so beautifully! We love our album and canvas wrap! Each piece of work he made for us flows together wonderfully! His professionalism is also unsurpassed! He consistently kept in touch with us from when we first booked him to even now a few months after the wedding with making sure we received everything we wanted out of our package. He was also early on the wedding day and even though we expected to first meet up with him at noon that day he surprised me by coming to my hair appt and getting a few shots at 9AM! That was a fantastic surprise and when he says that he will give you a "comprehensive session" he means it because he didn't head out till 11 that night! He made sure to catch all the little details of our wedding, which there were a lot! He also managed to keep everyone along a tight timeline like we were hoping since we were doing a bit of traveling for the photos away from the venue! David was great to get along with and very personable! Everyone enjoyed meeting and working with him! Highly Recommended!! We look forward to working with David more in the future! :)

David was wonderfully helpful and professional at every stage in the process of planning the wedding, and did a fantastic job of capturing the event. He was thoroughly prepared but also adaptable and calm when the weather threw us a curve-ball on the day. He took charge when he needed to for the group pictures, but for the rest of the day was unintrusive and his calm attitude put us at ease when shooting the portraits.

His images truly encapsulate the joy and happiness of all the guests, and the wide variety of colors on display. His photography was vivid and classy, and everyone who has seen the pictures agrees that he did a superb job.

David Owen has a great personality and is easy to work with. He takes great pictures and chooses the best angles, background, and scenery to work with. Out pictures turned out wonderful! At our reception, several of our guests were impressed with how many pictures he was taking how well they liked him and the other photographer working with him. We also received several compliments on how well the pictures turned out! We look forward to having David take family pictures in the future!

David Owen Photography was absolutely incredible! He was so easy, fun, and relaxing to work with. He took full advantage of all the fun scenes and details of the wedding and wedding venue. The result was a stunning collection of photographs of all aspects of our wedding day. He has a true talent for capturing the moments, the emotions, and the beauty of wedding celebrations. I love how his photos tell the story of not only my wife and I, but also of our wonderful guests and family. I highly recommend David Owen Photography. We were thrilled by how he worked with us on our wedding day and are thrilled with the photos we will have for the rest of our lives.

David was extremely responsive, flexible and interested in meeting our needs and expectations. He was very conscientious about asking what we wanted and meeting those goals creatively. We wanted a lot of candid photos and images of our guests, and he did an outstanding job. Our wedding was rather informal and nontraditional, and his photos really captured the spirit of our celebration. David is also a genuinely great person. We look relaxed and like we're enjoying ourselves in our portraits and family shots, and David set the tone for that. He managed to keep everyone on task without being intrusive. His package was also excellent value. I highly recommend him.

During the two meetings with David before our wedding we were able to plan and capture the essence and unique personality of our big day. His experience and professionalism were displayed through his thoughtfulness in planning our first encounter and his attention to detail when considering our outdoor summer venue. His approach and attitude were comforting and creative, including personalized artistic edits. We received many compliments on his work, and we are very pleased with our photos.

I would recommend David Owen to absolutely anyone and I will be using his photography services for as long as he is still in the business. His personality is great, he had a calming and fun demeanor on our wedding day, and his photos far exceeded our expectations. I still can't believe what great pictures we have...words cannot describe how much his photos mean to us. He was not at all over-bearing, but he knew when to give direction to us and our families. We knew he was there taking pictures the whole time, but he did a great job of blending into the background and capturing spontaneous moments. I can't say enough wonderful things about David and his photography skills. Again, I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.

As an event unfolds, David has a gift for finding the perfect shots that capture the spirit of the moment. We wanted a mix of formal portraits and informal pictures to capture the day and we were more than satisfied on both fronts. David also has a way of taking charge to make sure things are moving along, without being demanding. He blends well into the crowd so you don't feel overwhelmed or unnatural by having a photographer on your heals. David also did our engagement shoot and "TTD"-Trash the Dress shoot. He was very professional, responsive, and willing to try new things to meet our needs. You can rest easy knowing you'll have great pictures of your event with David.

David is a true professional! Before the wedding he spent considerable time with us, finding out exactly what we wanted. On the wedding day we booked him for a full eight hours, and it was so worth it. From pre-wedding preparations to our post-wedding paddle (yes, we jumped in a canoe!) to the live band at our reception, he captured the entire day beautifully. We also ordered the customized wedding book (not only for ourselves but family members as well.) We LOVE the way the pictures tell the story of our day; this is a MUST!! We would highly recommend David to photograph your wedding. We only wish we lived closer (we had a destination wedding in Minnesota), so he could photograph our new baby girl!
