When looking for a wedding photographer, we were looking for someone who knows how to capture the feelings and special candid moments of our day. Dave exceeded our expectations in every way.

I don't know how he did it, but Dave managed to capture many split-second moments during our wedding - and just from looking at the photos I feel like I'm back at the wedding all over again. And he captured so much, it is as if he was at 5 places at one time.

He was very easy to work with and humorous throughout the day - I felt like he was on our "team" and I could tell that he genuinely wanted our photos to turn out great. Dave took the time to listen to what kind of photography we were looking for, and he delivered what we wanted and more. It was hard to pick out which photos to send to family because there were so many great shots.

Best of all, Dave has been great about communicating with us. Since we are in Dallas (3 hours away), he was open to having as many calls as we needed, and always responded quickly to our emails.

My now husband was friends with Dave when he lived in Austin and they share the common interest of photography. Just when we started dating, he showed me Dave's website and told me that if we ever get married, this is the guy I want to take photos of our wedding. Considering men don't think or plan about their wedding 6 years in advance, I made note and when the time came, I looked up Dave and indeed he had a great portfolio and we went with him. We both found Dave's prices very reasonable in comparison to similar packages from other photographers.He includes high res images of all the photos he takes as a part of your wedding package (in his basic package) - something very important to consider.

Dave is very easy going, moves along very easily in the chaos of a wedding day and just gets things done. You do not need to tell him anything and everything he needs to know, he will ask for. Dave is amazing at his craft and as with all artists, my policy is to let them do their thing and not to micromanage them and it worked fabulously with Dave. We just had one photographer and I recently received my wedding pictures (well within the 2 weeks he promised) and I noticed shots of us and the family that I do not even know how he took! During the ceremony, I probably noticed him once. He was not one of those photographers that was intrusive and in your way the whole time. And this is saying something since our venue was quite a bit small.
Each of Dave's photos were incredible and there are absolutely no bad pictures. One of my bridesmaids kid ran off with a bouquet in the direction of a building that was torn down and voila, there is a cool shot from Dave. My mom is very sensitive to posing for pictures and Dave finds ways to get beautiful candids of her, my dad with his out of town college buddies - without us telling him. My mom told me she noticed Dave's job and wanted me to thank him specially! I am ecstatic and I highly recommend Dave to Houston brides too!

Wow! What an amazing service we received from DCM photography. Dave looked after us from the beginning and definitely listened to what we wanted from our photographs. This was achieved and more. On the day both Dave and Molly were super professional and were able to really capture the mood of the day. When I looked back through the proofs I was overwhelmed by how good a job they had done in capturing our memories so perfectly. I cannot recommend DCM photography enough and I know should I ever need a photographer in the future they will be on the top of my list

One of the main things my husband and I wanted the very best of was our photography for my bridal portraits and our wedding day. Let me tell you…… Dave was FANTASTIC!! He met me about 2 weeks before my wedding to do my bridal portraits at the Austin State Capitol. He did a really good job and got some really great angles. The photography at my wedding was breathtaking as well. He was able to meet us at my friend’s house where the bridal party was getting ready which was 20 minutes out of the way from the actual ceremony and reception. The pre-wedding pictures were AMAZING! I had made a list of groups of family I wanted to take snapshots with and he did a really great job at completing that. Dave and his assistant also did a wonderful job at capturing great shots at our reception. Overall, Dave is an exceptional photographer and well worth the money. If you take the time to let him know ahead of time the types of shots you want taken for your special day, he makes every effort to make that happen! He is very well rounded and easy to communicate with in person and through email. I highly recommend DCM PHOTOGRAPHY!

Dave is the king of photography here in Austin, TX. He made sure every request was met and was extremely professional every step of the way. He's even been very helpful and patient with our procrastination in making edits to the physical wedding album. All his shots look so great that it's hard to decide which ones to put in the album! Everything has been prompt and he's a blast to work with. We had lots of fun having him at the wedding and working with him. He also does all kinds of photography in case you need anything else in your life to look better too.

Dave is an amazing photographer that really knows how to capture the moment. He is extremely gifted in this aspect. The photos he took were just absolutely beautiful. And talk about on time... he got to the church before I did and even helped me hang up my dress! I couldn't be happier with the results.
