Dave was one of our vendors we became close with throughout our engagement. He is beyond patient, especially during our phone "interviews" where I grilled him with questions about lighting, his experience, etc. You spend a ton of $$ on photographers and you want to know you're covered. He did our engagement photos also and we loved them. He captured things we didn't even notice. we didn't feel all weird kissing in our romantic moments during our engagement session or wedding day. He was the only vendor that had not been to our "venue" before, The Branford House Mansion. He drove 2 hours and walked the grounds prior to the wedding, which was vital for our wedding day! Dave and his assistant were like ninjas, as a guest said, not being intrusive but capturing amazing candid photos. He worked hard and barely took breaks. 12 hours of hard work and we love the wedding photos!THANK YOU DAVE!!! only tip I would say is don't be afraid to ask him to tweak certain things. Some of my photos I felt didn't show enough detail of my dress or my spray tanned face looked a little pale. LOL! Just me being picky but he welcomes the feedback! Guests are raving about the photos he put on facebook for us. ps he worked brilliantly with our DJ ( Jae Palermo aka DJae Melee) to really capture the lighting our DJ did for us. the uplighting and lighting in the dance room was amazing and exactly what we wanted and Lucio photography captured all of our Dj's hard work!

Dave is one of the best there is in Fairfield County. He made life for the bride (and therefore the groom) so much easier and was very flexible to our needs. His array of equipment and passion and sense for taking the greatest pictures make him one the best there is. He was always there for us with advice and helping us make our vision of our wedding day come true through the pictures he took. Our wedding pictures are gorgeous and we are absolutely happy with the work he did for us. He truly made our wedding day special and the memories we have with those pictures will last forever. We will definitely use him again in the future for whatever other photography needs we have -- and so should you.

I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer. Dave provides not only the most professional service, but he does it with a smile. He truly loves what he does and it shows. He always went the extra mile to ensure that he was able to get the best shots. He knows when to step forward and manage family photo time and when to blend in and capture the party..

I would highly recommend him as a wedding photographer. We loved him so much that we used him for our engagement photos, family portraits and have plans to use him for other things as well..
