Dave Cross Photography
I love Dave! He did my head shots years ago and I am so glad I called him to do my wedding. He's the best in the business, totally professional, very focused, creative and easy to be around. I recommend him to everyone I know that needs a professional photographer because his work is really amazing. The shots he takes are incredible and I'm beyond thrilled with my wedding photo's.
Dave and Nick were recommended by a good friend of ours. It turned out that having their photography service to be one of the best choices we have made for our wedding. They are responsive, flexible and totally professional with great artistic vision. To my surprise, they have brought an assistant without extra charge. They took pictures from every angle/scene possible at the wedding, yet no one seems to notice the photographers. Their friendly warm fun working style made everyone feel at ease. Nick had the magic to get our little nephew stand still for the family picture. We did not plan to go to central park due to our early wedding ceremony schedule, but Dave and Nick somehow have planned ahead and found a tiny park with some trees near by and managed a great set of outdoor/street pictures. The photos came out very beautiful and filled with personal touch. Their wedding album design is one of a great kind! It is with the greatest enthusiasm, we give Dave Cross Photography 5 stars and recommend them without reservation!
We chose Dave Cross Photography after doing an extensive search and review process of local photographers in NYC. We had him for our engagement session and our wedding. Dave took all the pictures during our engagement session and they looked wonderful. His eye for detail and understanding of contrast and lighting made the pictures “pop”. The photos were then used in our reception booklet and were commented on frequently at our reception. Unfortunately, Dave was not able to continue through our wedding, but in stepped his capable assistant Nick. Our wedding pictures were phenomenal! As we no longer live in NYC, Dave has been very gracious and considerate with our schedules to allow us the time we need in order to finalize the wedding book and we cannot wait for the end result.
Overall Dave Cross Photography was the embodiment of its namesake: professional, easy to work with and an amazing photographer. I would highly recommend this vendor.

It's the first time a photographer injury has ever happened for us on the job - but that's why we already have plans in place for just such a situation. You can never be too prepared! Planning for your wedding day means taking every precaution to ensure your memories are captured no matter what. So glad to have you two as a bride and groom!
Dave Cross Photography made our photography an experience every bride could hope for! They were professional, accommodating, and facilitated all of our requested shots plus many more perfect moments. The breath-taking photos were a reflection of all the hard work Dave and Nick put in during the wedding day. From the first prep shots to the last guest farwell photos, I marveled at their creativity and artistic focus on every detail to capture the perfect shot. Most of all, we had a blast and you can see it in every photo!
Thank you Dave and Nick!
Dave Cross is such a talented photographer who has such passion for his work. He is very innovative with his work and how he captures special moments. Dave and Nick were an absolute pleasure to work with. We are so happy with how he captured our wedding day, ceremony and reception. His work makes for an unfolding story that is timeless.
We feel he captured our wedding in a creative, tasteful and intimate way and were thrilled that we had the opportunity to work with him for our engagement and for our wedding. Check him out, you will not be disappointed.
We highly recommend Dave Cross Photography! We absolutely love our pictures and can't wait to receive our album! Dave and his assistant Nick really caught every important moment of the day and both have such a great eye, as far as what makes great shots in each location. We couldn't be happier with our photos! Go with Dave Cross Photography. You will not regret it!
Dave, and his assistant Nick, captured every moment of our wedding beautifully. Their photographs are amazing, and we have received excellent reviews from everyone who's seen them. In addition to their amazing artistry, Dave and Nick are two of the greatest people to work with. They’re both personable, professional, and talented, you couldn't ask for more!! I highly recommend them!
We absolutely enjoyed our experience with Dave and his staff. They were all the above and more.
Couldn't be happier with my photos, my albums and the overall experience using Dave Cross Photography. Would highly recommended Dave to anyone - in fact I did. Shortly after he photographed my wedding he photographed my brothers wedding and they couldn't have been more pleased!
Dave and Nick were great. The photos were excellent and they tend to capture the moment instead of being posed. Although it is usually a cliche to say someone would lay down in traffic for you, Dave actually did (on more than one occasion). All of our guests really liked our photos, including our engagement shots, and also the short photo/video clip they put together. We are very happy with their performance and would highly recommend them to others.
My album was contemporary, stylish, and up to the moment. It took me a while to order the album, but once it was put together and I saw it, it was as if the evening was still happening. Every memory was captured, the smiles, and the laughter. If only I could throw myself another party, I would absolutely hire Dave again.
When I was searching for a wedding photographer, I really wanted someone who had an eye and took natural, creative pictures, and not the generic posed shots you often see. Dave Cross and his assistant Nick were exactly what I was looking for. I LOVE the shots they managed to get and they made both my husband and I feel so comfortable that we didn't even know we were getting our pictures taken. They are absolutely amazing and I cannot say enough good things about them. So easy to deal with, always answered questions immediately and his work is beyond what you would expect. I also love the way he did our album - so creative and unique.
He is also very reasonably priced and will work with you to find a package that fits your package. If you want the best wedding pictures ever, use Dave Cross!
We love Dave Cross and his wonderful staff. Our beautiful photos and finished wedding album were way above our expectations, which were already pretty high based on other work we had seen done by him. We would recommend Dave to anyone, anytime.
Dave sees beyond the Bride and Groom but is great at framing them within the surrounding resulting in such special pictures. He and Nick were a lot of fun to work with - we highly recommend them!
Dave is the best wedding photographer in New York! My pictures are gorgeous and I will treasure them forever.
We had the good fortune of having Dave and Nick photograph our wedding. They were great in every aspect. Our families, bridal party, and us all found them very easy and fun to work with. They had a relaxed style that enabled them to photograph us and the wedding without getting in the way of everything that was going on. After the wedding, we got to see all the proofs immediately. We love the album they put together and whenever we show people, they are very impressed with the artistry used to lay out the beautiful photos. We have no complaints at all!
We used Dave for our engagement photos and our wedding. We not only loved the final pictures, but were impressed with Dave's professionalism. Dave has a way of really getting everyone to relax, which results in great shots and makes the whole process a lot more fun. We really enjoyed having him around on our wedding day, and once the party got started, we didn't even notice him there although he didn't miss a single great photo opp. He and his team were busy uploading the pictures all night and checking them out, which was pretty cool. Our pictures were posted very quickly on an easy to access website.
We bought photo thank you cards from Dave, and although this delayed getting started on writing our thank yous, they came out great and we got them pretty quickly once ordered. Dave used a number of images and we received a number of compliments on them.
We have yet to get our album, since we haven't picked our pictures yet (All our delay, not Dave's at all), but when we do I will update this review.
The only reason he didn't get 5 stars across the board is that on the business end of things, Dave could up his customer service /responsiveness a bit. But it is a really minor detail in the grand scheme of things!
Overall, we really enjoyed working with Dave and I would enthusiastically recommend him to anyone looking for a great, professional, photographer who you will enjoy being a part of your wedding day.
Dave Cross is a very talented photographer and i was extremely happy with my wedding pictures.
The most wonderful Wedding Pictures we could have wished for. Very professional,easy to work with. Nothing too much trouble. Could go on for ever..... Just Fantastic! We even managed this from overseas, came from the UK to get married in NY. Katrina & Lionel McCartney (UK).
Dave Cross is a wonderful photographer! We could not have chosen a better, more professional photographer. He took all the photos we wanted along with pictures we never dreamed of. He was extremely inventive and we couldn't be happier we chose him. Everyone compliments our photos and especially our finished album. Use Dave Cross, you won't be disappointed.
I had the pleasure of officiating an intimate celebrity wedding at a luxury hotel in Manhattan with Dave Cross Photography. Dave captured all the tender moments of the ceremony with precision & grace--the smiles, the tears, and the joy & laughter. His romantic photos of the couple before the ceremony were gorgeous, as well as the reception celebration photos. It was wonderful to work with him, I trust him to provide every couple with style, artistry, and professionalism, and I look forward to celebrating more weddings together.
I love working with Dave. Not only are his photos beautiful, but collaborating with him is easy and allows us to complement his photos with videos from different perspectives.

“It’s your spontaneity and your personality that brings a unique energy to your images.
Trust that I’ll be there when the moments happen, laughing with you, standing next to you, ready for the unexpected.”
Dave Cross is a transplant from easy-breezy California… which possibly explains his laid back approach to photography, and the continuous praise he receives from brides for making their wedding day stress-free.
A lover of scuba diving and landscape photos, Dave found a knack for wedding photography quite by accident. One of the first photographers in New York to adopt the digital medium, Dave continues to pursue the newest technologies available—hoping that one day his photo equipment will work as quickly as his photographic eye.
On any given night, you’ll find Dave enjoying a fine wine and a blockbuster movie—two things you might not think go well together until you give it a try! In his spare time, Dave plays tennis less-well than his favorite player Roger Federer, but better than his assistant Nick, who still hasn’t picked up a racket.
For more than a decade, Dave has combined a documentary eye for spontaneous photos with a relaxed editorial feel for portraiture to deliver stunning photos of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut brides.
If quality photography is important to you, Dave can accommodate your wedding, no matter the size of your celebration.
Complete wedding packages begin at $3,950.
