Wow! There are so many wonderful things to say about David. My husband and I are so happy he was the one to capture our memories. First off, I just want to say how much I love our photos. We sat down to look through all the photos; after each photo we were constantly saying how amazing it was that he captured all the great moments. His ideas behind each picture were very creative and each of these moments will be beautiful memories that will last forever. Besides being a very skilled photographer, he is professional, an amazing communicator, and friendly. I was always able to get in touch with him and he was able to answer all my questions. We did our engagement and wedding photos with him. After each photo shoot he sent a few pictures for us to view, this was fun and put my mind at ease about how they would turn out. That was awesome! A week after our wedding, he had all the photos completed. So awesome to have the photos that quick! David was a big part of our wedding and we are so happy with his work; we know you will be also. 

I would highly recommend David Payne Photography. He was the photographer for my daughter's wedding, and he also took some beautiful engagement pictures. Not only are all of the pictures incredible, but David made the entire experience enjoyable. I was impressed by the number of pictures he took and how well he was able to "keep things moving" without sacrificing quality in the pictures. All of the pictures are beautiful, and he seemed to capture every special moment before, during, and after the wedding. David was a true professional and a gentleman. My daughter said it was the best day of her life.

David was a FANTASTIC photographer! He was so easy to work with and took some incredible pictures. He showed up on time for both my engagement pictures and wedding pictures. He captured the whole day perfectly. He was there when we started to get ready to when we left our reception. He got pictures of every single moment. When he got the pictures done (which was very soon after my wedding), it was like reliving my wedding day! The pictures brought me to tears. I'm so thankful I chose David to capture my sweet wedding memories!

I searched hours online for a photographer for my wedding. I came across David Payne Photography when I was looking at other weddings that had been photographed at the church I was getting married. I picked David Payne Photography because his work blew away that of other photographers who had also photographed in this church. (Very old church with lots of stained glass windows). I knew before I met him that I wanted to book him based off the work I had seen online. So the pricing was an added bonus. Very affordable when it comes to wedding and engagement packages. I chose a package that included the copyright to my photos. I can print them, look at them, share them, do anything I please with them for the rest of my life as often as I would like. This is a huge deal! He is a true professional and caters to his clients. Always on time and true to every word. I will recommend him to anybody I know!

David Payne did an AMAZING job photographing my wedding. It was very cold that day&I was so worried the pictures wouldnt turn out good but I was definitely wrong Dave did an absolutely fantastic job & our pictures could not have turned out more beautifully. He is not only an amazing photographer but a kind hearted nice man as well. He got shots of my wedding day that I will forever cherish. Anyone looking for a wedding photographer call Dave you will not be disappointed.

My husband and I cannot say enough about David Payne Photography. Hiring a good photographer for our wedding was a priority for us, and David exceeded all of our expectations. He is professional, fun, and personable. I felt so at ease from the first "click" of the camera. Most importantly, David was able to capture the emotions of that day in his photos.. We opted not to have a videographer and after seeing the photos captured of our day, we realized we didn't even need it. The progression of the photographs told the stories, and showed the emotions, of that day in a more profound way than any video could. We love the photos and HIGHLY recommend David.

We had a wonderful experience being photographed by David for both our engagement and wedding pictures. He was so easy to work with, very quick to respond, and just overall a great photographer. Our pictures were absolutely amazing and we couldn't believe how quickly he was able to get them to us after our wedding. His prices were more than reasonable and I would definitely recommend to anyone.

I found David Payne's website while I was shopping online for a photographer for my wedding! Soon as I saw his pictures, I knew I had to have him as my photographer... I just KNEW it.... I called and told my family and my in-laws about him and shared his blog with everyone! I noticed that his pictures were such high quality and it made me nervous that he more than likely wasn't in my price range. I called and talked to David about what I was looking for and what my budget was. David and I worked out an agreement and stayed within my budget!! David even went above and beyond and came to the open house at my venue (on his day off)! The day of my wedding, it rained....all day... Up till the moment David Payne pulled into the parking out!!! He brought sunshine with him (free of charge)!!! He done a FABULOUS job! I could have NOT asked for a better photographer! I wouldn't say it was "luck" that I stumbled upon David's blog, I would like to think of it is a "blessing". Pictures are going to last you a lifetime! David even took to extra mile (AGAIN) in helping my make my pictures last by putting them on a SanDisk Memory Vault which keeps the quality of your pictures for at least 100 years! How cool is that! So you don't have to worry about scratching a disc!! Overall, I was beyond pleased with David and my pictures!! I highly highly recommend David for any bride out there!

David Payne was our wedding photographer, and I knew from our first meeting with him that he would be great!! But, great is an understatement! He far exceeded our expectations!!! He took a ton of pictures and they are all outstanding! He did an awesome job of listening to what we wanted and making sure that we got all of those pictures and many many more!!! He also did a great job of getting our pictures to us in a very timely manner. Our wedding was two weeks ago today and we have ALL of our pictures and they have been edited!! That speaks volumes about the attention and effort David puts into his work!! David Payne is an outstanding photographer!!! We just can't think him enough for how well he captured our wedding day by creating images that are timeless and that we will treasure forever!!!

He is great to work with and has fantastic skills. I am so happy that I found him to take our wedding photos. The photos and album he designed are truly incredible.

I would recommend David for any type of event - especially weddings (big or small). His talent and personality cannot be matched! It was so easy to get along with him.

I definitely hope to use his services again in the future!
