David is the most talented, created, fabulous photographer. He did an amazing job at our wedding, and we are very happy we chose him. He adds a creative touch, and we LOVE our photos. We never once felt like he was there taking photos, and he is such a pleasure to be around, we were happy to have him at our wedding just as a friend. David also provided a photo booth, and the pictures from the photo booth were AMAZING. Thank you David for helping make our wedding perfect.
David was a fantastic photographer. I would highly recommend him for any events where you aim to achieve beautiful, varietal, and interesting photographs. He fit into our destination wedding group as if was an old friend and was truly professional the whole time. He was a great listener and was open to all needs and suggestions. We are very happy with the outcome of our albums. He has a very calm demeanor, and I found was very easy to work with. As a bride, I didn't have to worry about anything when it came to the perfect pictures to showcase my 3 day wedding event. I would use David's services again, and have already recommended him to numerous brides!
David is by far the best photographer around. It's hard to put into words how perfectly he captured the day. Not only was he able to capture some amazing pictures of my husband and I, he caught our family and guests smiling, crying and laughing. You can feel the emotion in the pictures. I will treasure them forever.
With social media as popular as it is I constantly hear what a wonderful photographer we had from those who know me and those that don't. Our pictures are truly magazine worthy. David deserves ten stars for his talent, professionalism, and eye for the very best shots.
Hiring David was one of the easiest decisions we made during wedding planning. My husband and I performed an exhaustive search of photographers and simply fell in love with David's work. It is so eye-catching and colorful and he really has a knack for capturing moments in time. His photos are anything but cliched wedding photography.
In addition to being a talented artist, David is an outstanding person. He is fun, easy to get along with and has such an incredible energy. This makes shooting photos with him that much more enjoyable. He is great with direction too -- he transformed even my camera-shy husband and his brothers (our groomsmen) into male models! To this day - my husband's brothers keep talking about what fun it was running around the city taking photos with David.
My friends and family were all very complimentary of David and his professionalism during our wedding. He seemed to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time - capturing special moments throughout the evening. I didn't have to direct him or explain what shots I wanted - he just knew.
We were more than satisfied with the final product - our photos are simply breathtaking. Friends have sent us comments ranging from "Wow. I've never seen wedding photos like these!!" to "Simply stunning." The dilemma we have now is choosing which ones to display!!
I could go on and on and on -- Bottom Line: extremely talented artist, very professional businessman - highly highly recommended!
David photographed our wedding and he did a wonderful job. He was very professional and responsive in all our phone calls and correspondences leading up to the big day and had great suggestions on how to best take our photos. On our wedding day we did our photo session in Central Park before the ceremony at the church and the photographs turned out beautifully. He had great ideas for capturing all different kinds of shots, with different posses, different locations, etc. At the actual wedding and reception he was everywhere and yet invisible. I got a lot of great feedback from guests that noticed how hard he worked and how he always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to capture the most meaningful and beautiful shots. And he truly did. We are very happy with everything that he captured on our big day. After the reception we wanted to take some additional photographs in Rockefeller Center and even though the 10 hour day was up he was happy to oblige and we got some final, beautiful shots. The last picture of the night became our holiday card. I definitely recommend him.
Professional, CREATIVE, absolutely gorgeous quality pictures, timely, once you see David's portfolio you will not want to go anywhere else!
Our friends had used David for their wedding & after I saw their pictures, I knew he was the only photographer I wanted to use for my wedding. He was extremely easy to work with and I felt comfortable with him all day. It was raining really hard when I was getting ready & David showed me a picture he had just taken of my ring on a leaf with a raindrop. It was the most gorgeous picture & put me at ease right away. He was on time, professional & got every shot I could have wanted. I am so thankful that I had him as my photographer, my photos are beyond amazing. Thanks David for exceeding all my expectations!
I knew I wanted David as my wedding photographer from the moment I saw his work on his website & blog (before I was even engaged). His photographs were so incredibly beautiful and were different than anything I had ever seen. David is truly an artist and has the ability to transform a simple setting with his talented eye and magical lens. He manages to walk a fine balance between formal wedding photography and fun, artistic, classy photography. When we met him at our wedding venue for the first time, he was able to come up with countless ideas for photographs within minutes of stepping onto the property. Working with David & his partner, Marcin during our engagement shoot and wedding day was better than we ever imagined; they were able to make us feel comfortable, and the end result was some really special photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Perhaps the biggest compliment is that our friends and family have asked for his information for their own events. Thank You, David!

David was great! He took beautiful, artistic photos and dealt with a groom who hates to be the center of attention. I would enthusiastically recommend his services!
David is simply THE BEST. I first saw his work at a friend's wedding, and never even looked at any other photographer because I was so impressed with his unique and dynamic style. He really captures the individual personality of each couple and each wedding and his photos showcase the absolute best of the day. And everyone looks fabulous! Plus he is so easy-going and fun to work with and really listens to the couple to bring their vision to life. I have already recommended him to multiple friends, one has used him for her wedding and her photos are amazing too. Can't say enough positive things about David and Cinematic.
David was fabulous! He captured the personalities of the Bride and Groom! Beautiful photography....from very sophisticated shots to the fun and imaginative!
David took the most beautiful pictures we could have ever imagined. His shots are fun and artsy and took our breath away. I have received so many amazing compliments on our wedding photos. He took so many photos that it was nearly impossible to narrow down the best images for our album. And he is really laid back and easy to work with! Love love love!
David and his crew have truly become a part of our family...I know there are alot of talented photographers out there, but honestly, our wedding photos are the best I've ever seen!
My husband and I knew David was the one for us when we met with him the first time. His style, approach, and product quality quickly won us over, and we were extremely impressed by his willingness to travel from Philadelphia to DC and Baltimore for our photo shoots. Our package was extremely generous in regards to time and products, and he stops at nothing to ensure the highest satisfaction with your photos. He was unobtrusive at the wedding, making everyone feel comfortable when taking photos, and the blend of formal pictures and informal candid shots really captured the essence of the day for us. He is also simply a great guy, and as my husband is one who is not comfortable getting his photo taken, he really took to David and we remain in touch to this day. Highly, highly, highly recommend!
David was absolutely amazing! Over a year later people still tell me that our wedding pictures are the best they have ever seen. They aren't just pictures to me they are works of art that perfectly capture not just our wedding but "us". Best investment we made.
It's almost 2 years since our wedding and as we look at the pictures every single day, we can only feel very lucky and grateful to have found David as our photographer. The pictures are beautiful, very artistic. David was easy to work with from the start, understood what we wanted and adapted to our circumstances. During our magical day he was discreet and yet seemed to have been everywhere. His pictures were varied, some surprising and spontaneous , all details of the day were recorded, all the pictures were beautiful. We recommend David enthusiastically.
David is not only a GREAT photographer, he is a visionary. He was the kindest, most calm presence in the midst of the wedding whirlwind and this was soooo important when dealing with such high emotions. He captured everything we wanted and then some! It's been almost 2 years now... we love to bring out the album and relive the most wonderful day.
David came down to Guatemala and shot my wedding and just blew our minds. I am a wedding photographer and so really have a critical eye for the process and the product and we were SO happy with the results. He was so easy to work with. My family loved him. He went way above and beyond. We were just damned lucky to have him there.
Can't I do more than 5 stars? David was the best. After interviewing David and looking at his wonderful portfolio, I felt the kids were making the right decision. Were they right, lets just say, my daughter and her husband had to buy a lot more frames. The images were fabulous, creative, beautiful and full of energy. He really captured the day. What is also important in selecting a photographer is making sure you like their personality as you will be spending a lot of time with them. David gets oodles of stars in this category too. Everyone loved him.
At the time of our wedding, my husband and I lived about an hour and a half from one another, and both of us had to drive at least 40 minutes to get to the church. To complicate things even more, it was a non-holiday Monday morning during rush hour, and we had close to 800 people attend. Oh, and it rained all day long.
Even so, David and co-photographer for the day, Neil, both arrived to our houses bright and early in the morning and did such a phenomenal job the whole day, despite having to deal with the weather and traveling. Some of my favorite photographs were panoramic shots they took in the church. Though the weather impeded our opportunity to take posed pictures outside, David and Neil did a bit of improvising and everything came out great.
On a personal note, I was a very emotional bride and did a lot of crying while getting ready. David was so friendly and reassuring, and he even made me laugh! I will always remember David's kindness and professionalism, and I would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a great photographer.
David Mielcarek is a truly incredible and inspirational photographer. Since our wedding, my wife and I have recommended him to many friends and family members planning weddings (or other important events) who were looking for a truly unique photographer. Unlike most photographers, David focus is on the non-traditional photographs of an event. He is very creative and finds ways to get involved and capture images of the most important and intimate moments without being intrusive. David uses unique angles and vantage points from which to capture scenes of the wedding and some of these images were so powerful that they have shaped our memories of that day.
His shots are more than just memories of the events he documents, they are art.
We are not the type to hang photos of ourselves around our home, but David's images from our wedding were so outstanding that we couldn't resist. Now, we have a few of our favorite images displayed in our dinning room.
Aside from his creative talents, David is a wonderful and easygoing person. He is a pleasure to work with, he is a good listener, and he has the ability to get along with everyone. This is extremely helpful during a wedding when there is often lots of pent up tension among family members and loved ones.
Lastly, I have read online on photography and wedding blogs that David is one of the photographers of choice for other professional photographers seeking to capture their own weddings and important events. If that doesn't say enough, I don't know what does...
If you are lucky enough to book David for your wedding, I promise that the photography from your wedding will be unforgettable.
David is a true artist, and he has a unique ability to capture special moments right as they happen. When I look back at my wedding photos, I really feel like I am right back there, on that day, in the middle of everything. What more could I ask for? He really went above and beyond - not just before and during, but after the wedding as well. I would (and have!) highly recommend him!
CINEMATICbyDavidM has to be hands down the best photography I have seen in a long time. Your wedding album becomes a work of art that you want to display. The Ansel Adams of Wedding Photography!! Pure brilliance! Below I would recommend him to a friend, not only that but I will recommend him to anyone I hear of getting married.. You will NOT be disappointed!
David was great and really made everyone at ease at my wedding. He was so easy going our pictures came out amazing. We still get compliments on our pictures and I hope to see him again at another one of my friends' weddings.
David captured every moment of our wedding in the most artistic and classic way. From start to finish everything was seemless! Worth Every Penny!
If I could describe David and his work in just a few words, it would be: breathtaking, exquisite, unconventional, and diverse. He listens and understands his surroundings and the people so well. I had the pleasure to work with David for our engagement session, rehearsal dinner, and wedding! He has never disappointed and continually amazes me! There aren't enough stars to express how awesome he is! Thank you, David, for being such an exceptional photographer, for always putting in 200% at everything you do, for having such a creative mind, for making me feel at ease (because I am extremely camera shy!), for making everyone feel beautiful, and for turning these memories into pieces of art!
The first decision Mark and I made after getting engaged (before choosing a date, reception site, bridal party or band) was that we had to have David as our photographer. He had photographed my sister's wedding two months before and his work was amazing. When we found out Monika Broz would be working with him the day of our wedding we were thrilled. Both David and Monika were so exceptional to work with. I'm not sure I could every put into words how incredible the photographs are or how David and Monika made Mark, myself, our families, bridal party and friends feel the day of the wedding. They managed to capture every moment of the day as if they were a friend looking on. The pictures still bring tears to my eyes when I look at them. I think the biggest compliment I can give is that almost all of our guests have said they want to redo their weddings and have David and Monika takes the pictures. Thank you again for capturing the most wonderful day in our lives!
David is the most incredible photographer I have ever seen. He captured our wedding day and all of the love and emotion that went with it in the most wonderful way. He made every moment fun and his artistic flare and creativeness are beyond comparison. We didn't have to worry about anything, all we had to do was celebrate our love with family and friends, David did the rest! And now, almost four years later we met up with David again and he did a photo shoot of us with our 16 month old twins. Again the pictures took my breath away. He captured the intense love that we have for our children, the fun we have with them and the deep love we have for each other. I would recommend David to anyone. He is THE BEST!
Loved working with David! He took beautiful photos of our wedding and created a gorgeous book. Not to mention he is such a great guy!
From the moment we met to the day of our wedding David has proven to be an exceptional photographer. He is organized, timely and has an excellent personality which makes you feel so comfortable. He has excellent ability and truly has such a great artistic eye.
We had so much fun with him on our wedding that it almost makes me want to get married again to have another session with him!
Could not recommend a better photographer/person more!
We came across David while going through all of the information we received for our wedding. We were so impress by his work that we booked a meeting with him. We knew from the beginning we did not want a traditional wedding photographer and David was anything but traditional. It was instant connection and new right away that David was the perfect person to shoot our wedding pictures and didn't have to look any further for a photographer. He was so easy to work with, organized and timely. From our Engagement Shoot to the Day of our wedding David was exceptional. He capture so many amazing moments and when we looked through our proofs it was so hard to find just one shot that we loved. Everything was incredible and he truly captured everything we wanted him to with out us even telling him. We have recommend David to anyone we know who was looking for a photographer. He truly is absolutely incredible!
From the start I was thrilled with David. He was personable, responsive, offered competitive rates and what I thought was a fun, unique cinematic style. When he arrived with his crew on our wedding day, it seemed as if he was just as excited as we were. He immediately found the more unique aspects of our wedding, like my red wedding shoes, NYC-themed table settings, outrageous flowers, hot dog vendor, eclectic disco band and STUNNING all-family wedding party and blew out those themes like mad. He is refreshed and inspired by original thought -- when you´re planning, put yourself in the position of a photographer and look through his lens. Be bold, embrace color and do something different. It makes it so much more memorable. As a vendor, he was enthusiastic, invisible at times, but never missed a shot. He sees beauty in most everything and is a joy to work with. If only all vendors were this easy! We lucked out with all of ours, but you must ask questions and put yourselves in the hands of experts. Whatever you do, don´t try to control them! Photographers are artists. David, David and Robin certainly are. Thanks again! Gillian & Roeland Baan
Beautiful photos, very professional, great vision for the final product, memory of what I wanted and final editing after the fact.
It will be 5 years this September that my husband and I will be married, and we are still so thankful that David was there to capture each and every moment! People still gasp when they look at the photos...David has a talent that is unmatched. He takes the most ordinary location and turns it into a photographic playground, fun for all involved. I will forever cherish my wedding day even more because of the magic David added with his lense. You are a genius!
I was referred to David by a friend, and after looking at his website I knew he would understand the feeling I wanted to evoke at my Autumn wedding. He has a unique, creative eye and makes an ordinary picture come to life. From what I saw in the photos that David takes, he believes that a moment should come naturally, not be forced. In my wedding photos, I fell in love with the way he caught the quiet moments that people shared with us and each other, without being the slightest bit intrusive. I've gotten amazing compliments from people who have seen my photos and I've recommended him to every one of my friends who are getting married. I will definitely be using David for future special events in my life...he's amazing!
David is amazing! Both our family and friends are astonished of all his work when we show them our wedding albums. We are extremely happy and proud for choosing him! He is creative, reliable and he has a special gift for giving the bride and the groom a confidence in front of the camera. We highly recommend David to all our friends!
David, WOW! At that point, we don’t even know how to express our appreciation for what you have done for us at our wedding day. You left us speechless when we saw our wedding pictures for the first time. What can we say, all of the photographs are amazingly beautiful and original!!! It’s been only couple months after our wedding and I still have tears in my eyes when looking at them, so I can only imagine my reaction in 40 years when showing these pictures to our grandkids… Thank you so much for all your hard work and for joining us for such a special and memorable day. We really enjoyed having you there and we thought you handled all the guests wonderfully. All the tiny details have been reflected in your photos and we are so grateful for it! It was so nice being able to enjoy all the photographs with our family, because they loved them as much as we did. You have such an amazing talent and we could never have imagined having anyone else with us that special day! Your photographs are truly capturing the emotion, excitement and fun of the day. It is extremely hard to pick only one picture that we like, because we love every single one of them…yes they are that perfect! Thank you for all the wonderful memories that you have created for us, we love you and wish you best luck!!!

David goes above and beyond the call of duty. He works "with" his clients, not just for. Every image that he has produced for us so far (wedding date: 5/31/08 so we haven't seen them all just yet) has been just AMAZING. David makes everyone around him feel comfortable and that allows him to capture the "real people" that are in front of him. He rolls with the punches and just delivers!
David was exceptional to work with. We had seen his work through friends of ours and had to have him. My husband and I both love photography and this was one area that was most important to us with our wedding. We wanted something original, different and unique. That is what we got. He does the traditional photos as well as interesting and diverse. His use of color makes everything light up, and his black and white very classic and always showing emotions. He captures special moments without you knowing he is there so the true emotions can be seen. He manages to also capture every facial expression of every person invoved to ensure that when you see the albums, you can see all the personalities that made your special day perfect. He is a true artist that is rare to find.
David captured our wedding day the way every bride and groom hopes for. He did an amazing job of ensuring our special day was perfect and seizing the moment for us through his photographs. Years later, we are one of the lucky couples that have beautiful albums to reflect on and to share with others. We will always be grateful to David for that.

David photographed our wedding back in 2007 and was truly amazing. Having someone with you, that you don't know, so much on the biggest day of your life can be nerve racking. But not with David. He made everyone feel at ease, kept things light and really had a great time WITH us. We kept saying "We want to hang out with him and be friends with him after all of this is done!" Lucky for us we've gotten to do a lot of that as he went on to photograph my sister's wedding, my husband's sister's wedding and a handful of our close friends' weddings. And everyone is equally as in love with him and his work as we were back in 2007. His work truly captures the small and big moments and the moments when you don't think anyone else is looking. A glance at his portfolio will make you want to book him on the spot!
Now we've started a new chapter in our lives and have a 16 month old son, my sister has 17 month old twins and my sister-in-law has a 5 month old son. A few weeks ago my sister and her husband and twins met with David to do a shoot of the new family. And this spring/summer we'll be doing the same with our family, my sister-in-law's family and my in-laws. We couldn't be happier that he'll be a part of the next step in our lives and giving us photographs we'll always cherish.
Two great decisions of 2007: marrying my husband and booking David as our photographer!
David is an amazing photographer and the service he provided was worth every penny. He was able to capture our special day with all our friends and family in an artistic and beautiful way. I choose his service because he is professional, accommodating and willing to go above and beyond to make the customer happy. It is so nice to look back on our day and see all the special moments that took place throughout our wedding. I love all the candid shots... he has an amazing eye and I would highly recommend his service.
David's work caught my eye while my friend was looking for a wedding photographer and the minute I got engaged I knew who to call. I was amazed by his style and talent. He is an incredible artist who knows exactly how to capture your special day in photographs. My favorite part of his work was the awesome slide show he did while guests enjoyed their cake. For anyone that couldn't make it to the ceremony they were able to watch it all through his amazing work.
DAVID M. gets 5 STARS. If you want to get your money’s worth and so much more, I highly recommend him. My wife and I had our wedding in the NYC area, so we looked through many portfolios by photographers. Having a background in art myself, I wanted a photographer who could couple traditional wedding photos with gallery worthy images.
DAVID M. was the PERFECT COMBINATION OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER AND GALLERY ARTIST.
My wife and I wanted our guest book pictures taken in the streets of Manhattan and in The Museum of Natural History. David was very accommodating and turned it into a lot of fun. We got a lot of compliments about our guest book on our wedding day.
As for the wedding day itself, David captured so many STUNNING PHOTOS of friends, family, and the indoor/outdoor locations. He took photos of unexpected moments, and very modern photos, but he also took traditional photos that our parents appreciated. He even achieved the impossible, an outdoor photo shoot with about 60 members from my huge side of the family. He was able to direct everyone respectfully and quickly. He is also a good judge of people and personalities. He blends into the background so your wedding day is uninterrupted. I saw him quietly shoot photos of guests who didn’t want any attention, but then I saw him having really fun photo shoots with the more outgoing guests at our wedding.
Additionally, David was a very comforting person to have around on a wedding day when you can be a little nervous of all that’s going on. He made us feel at ease and my wife and I were so happy he was there.
Other than the EXCELLENT SERVICE, GOOD CREW, and the ARTISTIC QUALITY of David's photography, the best part is that he is a real GENTLEMAN, and just an all-around good person. Most importantly, my wife and I now feel like he is a member of our family because he made our wedding day better than it already was and gave us the timeless photos that we will remember forever. 5 STARS!
David was recommended to me by a friend who had seen his work at another wedding; I've since recommended David to others. Without a doubt, David was the best vendor choice I made for my wedding. His relaxed attitude made my wedding party and guests feel right at ease. He was extremely flexible and provided great suggestions for locations, poses, and shots. David even took the time to coordinate 3 extended family shots, each of which had between 20 and 50 people. He was a lot of fun and professional at the same time. Most importantly, his work was absolutely amazing. I love my pictures; he captured the day in the photojournalistic way my husband and I were hoping for, while still managing to reflect everyone's personality. Because David was so relaxed, at ease, and fun, our usually unphotogenic group had a great time, and beautiful pictures of everyone is a testament to that. Definitely hire David as your wedding photographer--you won't regret it!
David was a very professional and excellent photographer. Our wedding pictures and photo album were/are amazing. He was very flexible and worked with us leading up to, during, and after our wedding day. We really enjoyed working with him and he comes highly recommended.
Working with David at our wedding was fantastic! He was full of great ideas and our pictures were perfect! David made us feel comfortable, worked with our scheduled events, and helped make our wedding memories special. I only wish he shot family photos because I'd love to work with him again!
David did an fantastic job. I found him through another photographer and really liked his work so I booked him. I love the pictures he took - he did both beautiful "staged" photos, and also captured everything as it happened. He put together a slide show that we played during the wedding that was the highlight of the reception. I had so many people come up to me afterwards to say they were amazed at how he put all these great pictures from the day together so quickly so everyone could see them.
In addition to being a great photographer, I found it helpful that David had a great personality to deal with the chaos that naturally comes with big event like a wedding day. Everyone loved him, so it was fun to have him around as we were getting ready. I think that helped him capture even more special moments because we all felt so comfortable with him there. He got great shots at the church service without being heavy handed, so we were able to focus on the ceremony and not be distracted.
I was thrilled with my experience that day and loved the pictures I got as a result, and I'm happy to recommend him as a wedding photographer.
We were so pleased with our experience with David. He gave us so many wonderful memories of our wedding day.
Out of all of the MILLIONS of decisions that I made for my wedding day, besides choosing the Groom of course, choosing David Mielcarek as my Wedding Photographer was the BEST decision I made hands down!!!
I myself am a Professional Photographer with a degree in Photography from FIT, so when choosing a wedding Photographer, I had the highest of standards and expectations! I am known as a perfectionist, high maintenance and overly demanding. Not only did David meet every single one of my very high expectations, but he greatly EXCEEDED them with flying colors!!! I am not easy to please, so that was quite an accomplishment!
From the moment we met I just had this good feeling about David! He's just a very likeable, kind-hearted person. On top of his personable demeanor, his picture's brought tears to my eyes!!! At that moment, I knew that my long search for the World's Best Wedding Photographer was finally over! He was it!!!
David has this easing charm about his personality that makes the most nervous and stressed bridezilla feel comfortable and relaxed around him on one of her most important days! He knew how to get the natural smiles and have fun while doing it! He made me feel so special, like I was the most beautiful bride he had ever seen! He was 100% professional, reliable and trustworthy at all times! He was also so patient with me, and a pleasure to work with from start to finish! He followed through on every promise and I cannot imagine a better Wedding Photographer!
Every single one of my wedding pictures was breath-taking! David captured everything I could have dreamed of and more! I have referred David to every single one of my friends and family members that have gotten engaged since I met him and will continue to do so in the future! I have never seen a more beautiful wedding album in my life!!! Everyone who has seen it agrees and wishes that they knew about him for their wedding day!
There are no words to fully describe how absolutely flawless David was!!! Both my husband and I will be forever grateful for all of David's hard work, patience and award winning pictures! We feel so BLESSED to have found David to photograph one of the most important days of our lives!
From the bottom of our hearts we want to say, THANK-YOU DAVID MIELCAREK!!! YOU ARE THE WORLD'S BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER!!!
As the mother of the bride, I wanted my first daughter (of three) to have a picture-perfect wedding, and even though we had an unexpected wedding guest, "Hurricane Ernesto" (labor day weekend 2006) the day was truly PICTURE PERFECT because of our amazing photographer, David Mielcarek! Someone who can remain calm in the middle of a hurricance, and adapt to rain and gusting winds, is truly A PRO!!! Not only did he adapt our 'garden photos' to an amazing indoor locale, he actually used the rain to his artistic advantage-GORGEOUS shots of the bride and groom beneath a golf umbrella, walking amid raindrops together toward the awaiting limosuine, and even some shots looking out of windows with rain coming down, that were nothing less than MASTERPIECES! So much so, as a matter of fact, that some friends who have seen our albums while planning their own weddings, have said, "I almost hope it rains on my wedding!" Since my daughter's picture-perfect wedding, at least six friends, neighbors and family members have had weddings 'by david' and EVERY SINGLE ONE feels as we do, that SIMPLY PUT...HE IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You cannot go wrong if you use David Mielcarek, it will be the one thing you don't have to worry about on your special day, no matter what the weather might be! Deanna V. Sass, Princeton, NJ
I have to express how pleased both my wife and I were with choosing David Mielcarek as our Wedding Photographer! He captured every special moment of our day perfectly! I usually don't like having my picture taken, but with David, I didn't even notice he was there! I was able to enjoy our wedding day and still have lots of amazing shots! His creative eye and artistic angles helped us see our wedding from such a unique and interesting perspective! He was a true professional and a joy to work with! We couldn't be happier with the outcome! We highly recommend him to anyone who wants the best there is! Thank-you so much David Mielcarek for capturing some of our most precious memories that we will treasure for a lifetime!
Robert J. Moravek Jr.
Thank you SO much, David!!! You made the memories from our wedding day absolutely one of a kind. The photos are vibrant, full of life, joy, love, emotions yet true to exactly what our day was! They are all amazing pictures!
I still can't believe you gave us over 800 photos...I appreciate every single shot you took that day. I can't thank you enough for what a great job you did. You captured every special moment of our wedding day and at the same time managed to be completely unseen and unobtrusive! We have also received lots of praise about how much of a nice guy you are to be around. You were funny and our guests loved having you around. I can't imagine hiring anyone else but you when my sister gets married in 2010!
Oh, and one more thing - the album is a true masterpiece. Everyone we show it to, until this day can't stop giving us (and you!) compliments. You were a delight to work with beginning to end - we can't wait for the next one in the family!
Thank You Again!!!
I can't believe we actually wanted to go with the idea of just asking friends to take pictures at our wedding and then making our own scrapbook. We weren't really sure about the 'digital revolution' going on soon before we started planning our wedding. When we met David however it all changed. Not only did we see that digital was good (it doesn't really make a difference if the photographer knows what they are doing - now we know that!) but we started appreciating the professional approach and guidance we got from David. Little did we know how blown away we would be after the wedding when the pictures came in. I guess David's prices are a bit higher now than what they used to be at the time we were hiring him. Guess what - they should be ten times what they are!!! It's a steal to get him for what he charges so please do not hesitate - book him while he's available. It's not only about the photos that are absolutely amazing in color, clarity, composition... but also about the completely professional attitude and service. In all areas David outdid himself! We couldn't be happier!

The pictures are AMAZING!! They are ridiculous and I am in love with them, thank you so much. Tim told me they were posted while I was at work and I raced home as fast as I could to see them. The saturation is amazing, I really don't know which series I like the best. Even my mom likes them and she doesn't know anything about art. But that's what they are...really, really, really good art. It really gets me psyched even more for the wedding!

Thank you again!

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wowowowow! There is so much to choose from here! You captured all of the joyful moments of our day. It's amazing to relive the day as you go through these images. We're forever grateful. Thank you for your amazing work!
As I'm sure you hear ALL the time.. everyone who I have shown your blog post to has just been in AWE of your pictures. There hasn't been ONE person who just casually said, "oh that's nice" every person has said how breathtaking and fantastic they are!! YEA! You truly have blown away all my friends and family on how you absolutely captured the day and the emotions!
I am so impressed and am so telling all my engaged friends about you! (and the internet of course!)
I cannot wait to see the gallery and am already thinking about how I want to frame and print the photos haha! So fun!
Talk to you soon!
We have looked at the pictures...oh, about 1000 times and are absolutely SPEECHLESS! I don't think I can put into words what amazing work you did. The way you captured the joy in not only our faces, but our parents, friends and family is incredible and invaluable! You are so truly talented and gifted and John and I could not have been happier. You truly captured photographs that reflected our personalities, and most importantly, the wedding day and we are forever grateful.
From the first meeting to our engagement session, this has just been an extreme pleasure and wonderful experience.
There will be a formal thank you but I just wanted to let you know immediately how incredibly happy we are with your work. We were so fortunate to find you and use you as our photographer!
We don’t know where to begin on how to thank-you for your breath-taking job done on our wedding Photography! You exceeded all of our highest expectations and captured more than we ever could dream of! We are so grateful for all of your hard work, long hours and endless effort you put into capturing one of the most important days of our lives! We have already recommended you to all of our family and friends and will continue to! There are truly no words to fully describe what an amazing job you did! You are a true professional and a true artist and we feel so fortunate and lucky to have found you! We couldn't be more pleased and we thank-you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the best memories that will last a lifetime!
David, I've just viewed the entire gallery and I am just blown away! You have such an amazing eye and so much personality....it's everything that Josh and I were looking for. I truly feel that it was fate for us to work together, and I don't care if that's sounds cheesy, lol. You had a wedding that was cancelled (how often does that happen?), and we had a photographer that backed out on us last minute...FATE.
Josh and I will be in touch soon to schedule a time to start working on the album with you. Thank you again for everything!
We couldn't wait to get back from our honeymoon to email you and let you know how grateful we are for the work you've done on our wedding day. The slide show was AMAZING and out of this world. To see how you've captured our emotions of that very special day was unbelievable. We can't wait to see the proofs, but we know that the pictures are going to be awesome. It isn't easy to find a person that understands the emotions of that day and is able to capture them in a picture. You've done it and we're very thankful for having found you and being able to work with you. You've received many compliments from our guests-and that further proves your greatness. We hope to hear from you soon.
Marek and Emilia
Ok so I am nowhere near ready to go in the morning for the honeymoon, but I just could not resist writing to just quickly Thank you so much for yesterday! I absolutely can not express how much I enjoyed the time with you and Monika! It is so cool that I got the chance to meet her! I am so appreciative that you traveled to photograph my wedding, and even though I know it was not as elaborate as many weddings can be, I am positive that the one thing I will always remember of this day, other than marrying Jeff of course, was how amazing it felt to work with both of you! You are so awesome together, and I am so thrilled to have had the opportunity to meet both of you! You both truly made me feel so special, and it is a feeling I will never forget!
And of course I absolutely loved the slideshow! I don't even know how long it lasted, but I didn't want it to end! The images were completely breathtaking and the music was so cool! It was just perfect!! Everyone has been telling me how much they loved it!
I hope you both enjoyed your visit to Baltimore! It truly is amazing what you can do with a garage door and an empty parking lot! :)
Thank you for making my wedding day truly memorable!
Cinematic by David M is on our preferred vendor list for wedding photographers. Not only is David extremely talented, he is also a nice person. Our couples love him and adore his photographs. Highly recommended.
Contemporary, cool, authentic, anti-cliche, stylish wedding photography with cinematic twist. "If I could describe David and his work in just a few words, it would be: breathtaking, exquisite, unconventional and diverse. He listens and understands his surroundings and the people so well." - Sabrina Lo (married May 16, 2009)
I love shooting details during a wedding but also like concentrating on the big picture. I enjoy freezing unique moments in time and finding expressions that last a split second (please take a look at my post about what photojournalism really means to me: http://groupof10.com/unveiled/2009/06/17/photojournalistic-majestic/ )
I completely understand and respect the meaning and the uniqueness of a wedding day so I do invest all my heart into every single event I photograph YET I think life needs to be treated with a grain of salt and it's easier for everybody when people can appreciate the humorous side of it. I am ALWAYS happy to shoot and to work with people! Please have a look at the following to answer the ultimate WHY I DO WHAT I DO question: http://groupof10.com/unveiled/2008/06/03/why-we-do-what-we-do/

if you don't mind seeing each other before the ceremony please schedule enough time for photography. Getting all the family photos and bride&groom session done leaves you with nothing to worry about (photographywise) for the rest of the day (you can rest assured we will do our part of the job well!) and enjoy the day with one less, major thing off your mind.
Having a wedding planner helps a lot! If you can only incorporate it into your budget - you won't regret hiring a good one! Do your research online before you make a decision.
Please do not kill your photographer before the wedding by giving them a list that says "please take a 3/4 portrait photo of the bride alone and a full length photo of the bride alone and a photo of the bride and groom looking at each other..." (and similar) - as much as a list of family shots you are going to need is most welcome, the one that lists completely obvious stuff we can really live without. IF the photographer knows ANYTHING about their craft chances are they will capture all those photos plus a lot more anyway!
