David was absolutely amazing. He was patient and made sure to get every picture we wanted in. Everyone raves about our engagement photos and I can't wait to receive our wedding photos. Dave had great suggestions about loosening everyone involved up and how to get the best possible shots. His prices very reasonable and his wedding photos are some of the best I've ever seen. I will definitely refer him to others and use him for any other family photos in the future. A+

Where do I begin?! I work in the fashion industry and had a pretty specific style of photos that I was looking for. I came across some photographers that were extremely talented but cost an arm and a leg. I didn't want your typical wedding photos and I wanted all of the photos with the right to print my own. When I reviewed Dave's portfolio I was blown away, and then I looked into pricing and couldn't believe what he had to offer. Upon meeting him, he was very friendly and professional. He brought some photos and did a quick glance preference check to lock down the feel of photos we were interested in. A few days prior to the wedding day he was in contact with me to see if there were any last minute details and to confirm location etc. Our wedding day was perfect. Dave captured over 1,400 photos and the left us speechless. Even the packaging of the photo discs were impressive and can be kept for a lifetime. Our wedding party, families, and guests all thought he was extremely professional, kind, and easy to work with. We have received so many compliments on our photos and we owe it all to Dave. He has an artistic talent that separates him from the rest. From first impression to last I cannot thank him enough.

One of my friends wrote me about the pictures, "In all honestly, those are the most beautiful wedding pictures I have ever seen," and another said that we found a diamond in the rough - we agree!

A+++ Wow!

Working with Dave was a blast. He was responsive and helpful via phone/email at all times, which as a bride is a must-have. His portfolio was amazing, which is why we chose him (he was also in our price range AND you own the rights to your photos afterwards). On our wedding day, Dave was helpful, fun and relaxed. He made the photos fun and was able to get a lot done in a short amount of time. At the reception, he captured everything beautifully and it never felt like we were on stage or waiting, he was just taking photos as things happened. We were able to see our photos online 2 weeks later and about a week after that received the CD's in the mail. They were beautifully packaged in collectible and personalized boxes- what a nice surprise!

It's difficult to explain in just an online review how great our experience with Dave was as our wedding photographer. The images we received from our wedding are beyond words. The quality of the images are amazing, but what sets Dave apart is his style. He captured so many moments where you can just feel the emotion. And behind this incredible work is an amazing person. We could not have asked for anyone better. Dave is a laid back guy who knows how to keep things fun and keep people loose. He was great at capturing the moments as they happened rather than just having every picture posed.

The rest of our review goes through other things about our experience with Dave, but what I wanted to point out first is 1. Our photos from Dave are better than we ever expected, even after seeing his work. And 2. He made our wedding day more enjoyable by having him be a part of it...

We discovered Dave after seeing photos of a friend's wedding we had attended. We were blown away at not only the quality, but the overall style of the images. When it came time to our wedding planning having a great photographer was very high on our list. We viewed Dave as one of our top options after reviewing his work (www.ddophoto.com) and after looking around not only were the other options not as good, but they were more expensive.

When we met with Dave prior to the wedding he was very helpful in putting our timeline together. We weren't 100% on a couple of things and he was very flexible in working with us and adjusting the timing as we got closer to the big day.

The day of the wedding was amazing. Aside from our own great experiences, we had so many friends and family tell us how great our photographer was and how he made everyone feel comfortable. In the end we received 13 discs from Dave with about 1,700 high-quality digital images.

As I already mentioned, I don't think I can say in words how great our experience with Dave was. He is a great person with an amazing talent.

We called David in a bind. Our agreed upon photographer moved from Wisconsin to Texas without our knowing and never responded to our e-mails/texts/calls. We were first presented with a formal contract two weeks before our wedding.

Needless-to-say, we were FRANTIC to find someone willing to shoot our wedding on such last minute notice. David answered our e-mail within 12 hours of receiving it, and (without pressuring us) said that he would mark the date on the calendar and could be available for us. He sympathized with our situation without bad-mouthing our other photographer. His professionalism is amazing, and his willingness to step in at the last minute is beyond appreciated.

Overall, David runs a professional business and takes breathtaking photos. We'd have given him more stars if we could!

Thank you, David!

Dave was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. In choosing a photographer for our wedding, I looked at a number of photographers in Southern Wisconsin for quality of photos and price. Dave's pictures did the best job of showing the couple in a natural but flattering setting - couples looked happy and relaxed and didn't appear posed. I was living in New York when I first contacted Dave, and it was easy to make arrangements from a distance. After securing the date, Dave was willing to let us decide on the package we wanted closer to the day, which was made it easier to deal with our budget. Dave was also willing to add some flexibility into our contract to accommodate my husband, who is in the Army National Guard and could be called away at any time. There were a few times when I waited a few days for a response, but this was never inconvenient, and it was because Dave was out of town with other work. We met with Dave prior to the wedding to discuss the details, and he is very good at putting you at ease - very relaxed and professional. He will guide the day using his expertise, but is also always perfectly willing to accommodate your requests. I found out at the rehearsal that our priest did not want photography during the ceremony, which was a shock to me. I planned to talk to Dave about it the next morning, but by the time I arrived, he had already talked to the priest and taken care of it. Whew! My family is large, so we asked for about a thousand family photos, which Dave took care of quickly. Our family and wedding party had a lot of fun taking pictures with Dave (a few people mentioned to me that they liked him). He had creative plans for photos of us and our wedding party. We ended up with a lot of gorgeous and fun photos and are very pleased with our decision to choose Dave. Best of all, his prices are more than reasonable compared with other vendors in the area. I would absolutely recommend Dave to other brides.

Working with Dave was wonderful! I could not imagine having anyone else taking our wedding photos. He made sure to understand our desires and concerns, was very responsive, and always on the ball. On wedding day I didnt even realize he was there throughout the ceremony and the shots he got are gorgeous! He had great ideas for beautiful photos where we actually look natural (not like we'd been smiling for pictures for two hours). The pictures were ready before we got back from our honeymoon and the end result is awesome. We have truely GORGEOUS photos from our wedding day. I would recommend Dave a million times over.

David was easy to get a hold of and was flexible in scheduling a first interview. He went over the entire process with me and was very clear and straight forward about the timeline. He followed through on everything he said he would, and the results of our photography were right on. He was a joy to have around on the wedding day, and he was very flexible with timing when things didn't go as planned. He was very professional, nice to work with, and timely. We got our photos while we were on our Honeymoon and never had to wonder when they would come. Great experience, overall!

David was fantastic to work with! He was very “real,” down to earth, and had a good sense of humor. He was great with people, knew everyone’s names within minutes, and did a great job of getting real smiles out of people. He was very easy to work with and had lots of great ideas for the wedding itself, not just the photos. I mostly worked with him through email (which I preferred) but he’s easy to talk on the phone as well. We had our photos within two weeks of the wedding--two sets of discs with all the photos (something like 1,300 of them!) which were decorated with our photos, which was a nice touch. I would very highly recommend using Dave as your photographer, we were very happy we used him!

I would highly recommend David Orndorf for your wedding photography. We live in Madison and he was more than willing to meet to prepare for the wedding so that it was convenient for us. David is very down-to-earth and easy to work with. He is a professional that has been doing wedding photography for years and knows more venues and where to go to get the best photos. The day of the wedding, everyone commented on how well he got all the kids to smile and remembered their names. Also, David had lots of great tips for the groom and I to ensure the pictures were candid and natural looking, which we appreciated. We had a ton of great photos and got them back very quickly. The candid / artistic photos were great. I appreciated getting the digital photos, because we decided to make our own album online. Even though they were just disks, they came well presented in a leather case to keep over the years. Compared to other photographers, the full package of David's great customer service, awesome photos, having the digital files, etc.; the value is incredible.

There a lot of photographers out there who want thousands of dollars to shoot your wedding. My husband and I were adamant about having ONE photographer who was not a paparazzi, not into getting dozens of posed shots, someone to just document what happened - a non-traditional wedding photographer. I also didn't want to order an album or a certain amount of prints - I love putting photobooks together online, and wanted the digitals to do that!
Dave fit the bill to a tee. He's a photojournalist by trade and does weddings to make up for his own awful wedding photographer! He was calm and professional, called when he said he would, emailed me whenever I had questions, showed up the day of the wedding ready to go! He was completely non-invasive - you know how some wedding photographers seem to be up in everyone's business the whole day? Not Dave - we forgot he was there sometimes! Everyone at the wedding just raved about how great he was - patient, great with kids, and almost anticipating everyone's needs. It was a hectic day, and he just rolled with it - my matron of honor was impressed with how he knew everyone in the bridal party's name! Awesome.
The pictures were online in LESS THAN A WEEK! I've never, ever seen that quick of a turnaround! And they were absolutely perfect - a documentary of our day in pictures. The digitals and archive set came to us boxed and labeled with screened images from our day - so professional and easy to use!
I cannot recommend David Orndorf Photography enough for your wedding - you will not be sorry!

We were very happy with him at our wedding. We found him to be professional and knowledgable. He had good recommendations in planning our locations for pictures and our day. He was also willing to "roll with the punches" i.e. we had a lot of fun after the ceremony taking serious and not so serious pictures. Even when we deviated a little from our plan so that we could enjoy the day, he made the most of it and got GREAT pictures (some of the best were the most spontaneous).

The pictures are BEAUTIFUL, some are quite artfully done and creative, while others are more traditional. I highly recommend his services!

Recomiendo a David Orndorf Photography a todas aquellas quinceañeras que quisieran tener guardados para siempre esos momentos tan bellos en sus vidas. Nosotros tuvimos la suerte inmensa de tenerlo en nuestra boda y nos sentimos muy dichosos de haberlo contratado para ese gran día. David es muy profesional y un experto tomando fotografías. Siempre tiene muy buenas ideas y como verán en muchos de sus trabajos, sus fotografias son un arte ejemplar. Fabulosas fotografías con un toque de creatividad. Para todas aquellas que todavía estén inseguras, no esperen más, David Orndof Photography es la respuesta. Excelente fotógrafo. No se van a arrepentir.

We were thrilled with your work! The pictures turned out wonderfully and you were able to capture the emotions, moments, and details of the day. Thank you for getting all of the details of the reception room, the flowers, place settings, etc. We were so involved with spending time with our friends and family that we were unable to take in all of the details- they will be great to have in our archive for years to come. You were extremely professional, easy going and so great to work with. We truly appreciated how quick and efficient you were- it allowed us plenty of time at the cocktail hour to talk to friends we hadn't seen in years, yet you still were able to capture plenty of diverse pictures. We have received many complements on how great you were. Thank you for capturing our day!

Dave was great to work with! Quick with the pictures, before you know it there are 5 shots taken and all are great. I found Dave on a last minute recommendation because my photographer cancelled... lucky us, Dave had someone cancel on him for the same date! He was fun and flexible, and willing to to what we asked. I would recommend Dave to anyone and everyone! Thanks Dave!!!!

My experience with David Orndorf was fantastic from day one. From being extremely responsive when I first reached out to him to his superior organization throughout the planning process and especially the day of the wedding; he is a true professional and artist.

The photos are just gorgeous! Dave was able to capture the day perfectly and looking at some of the shots I am certain he must also be a magician. We are so pleased with the photographs and can't thank Dave enough for all his help in capturing our special day. He was kind, friendly and he was excellent at making everyone feel comfortable so that both the candid and portrait photos appeared natural and fun which is exactly what we had wanted.

The photos were available online by the time we got home from our honeymoon and we received our copies in a beautiful package shortly after. We are really enjoying married life so far and after a month I am still looking at the pictures almost daily! Family and friends that we shared the online album with are just raving about how beautiful they are!

We would definitely recommend Dave to anyone looking for an amazing wedding photographer.

Dave did a great job, very professional and made everyone feel comfortable. The photos came out beautiful, and it was nice to see them up on the website before we left for our honeymoon! We received our CD's with the pictures right away when we came back, so now we can start printing them off for ourselves and friends and family! I would recommend him to any bride.

I absolutely loved having Dave as our wedding photographer! Having a good photographer was one of the main things that I truly cared about when I began planning our wedding. After researching photographers in Chicago, the packages I preferred were WAY out of my price range. My friend sent me Dave's website and I loved his pics, style and his prices! He is very talented and I could not be happier with our pictures. We got married on one of the hottest days of the year in a church that had no AC and you could not tell through the pics that we were sweating, which is great! At the reception he took me and my husband outside to take pics as the sun was setting and the pictures are just amazing! He is very unobtrusive but at the same time he was always there when I wanted a certain picture to be taken. Not only is he an amazing photographer, he is also very down to earth and easy to work with. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a photographer!

We absolutely loved working with Dave. As a person, he was honest and efficient with the business details (meeting with us prior to the wedding, getting our photographs to us a week later, etc.) We really appreciated the fact that Dave was "to the point" with everything because it really made it so easy for us. On the wedding day, Dave was so in the moment with us (yet we barely noticed him!), and this is definitely seen through all that he captured. His photographs are natural and genuinely reflect all the happy moments of the wedding day. That day goes by in such a blur...by looking at all of Dave's photography, it reminds us how special it truly was. We would most definitely recommend Dave in the highest regard!

We had a very large wedding party, large families, and lots of children. The photographer was patient and flexible. The pictures were gorgeous, modern, and very reasonably priced. Also, David had our wedding pictures available online less than a week after the wedding. The discs were sent less than two weeks later.
