I cannot sing Dave McIntosh's praises enough, but I'll try...my Father was a professional photographer in New York, so obviously I grew up with very high personal standards for picture quality. Dave's photos were the only ones that caught my eye, and which my Fiancee and I instantly gravitated towards, and this was after attending several Bridal expos. His work was unique because it was both clearly planned out, but also brilliantly spontaneous. He's kind, helpful, and skilled. We met with Dave, at our venue so that he could scope it out and get a clear idea of what kind of shots we wanted, and make suggestions for other shots we might like. He not only spent about 2 hours for our initial consultation discussing with us and my parents what type of looks we gravitated towards, while showing us examples of his work, but then stayed on with us afterwards for about 45 minutes just to chit-chat; he said that part of what he loves about his job is getting to know people. This, I feel, is what makes Dave's work so special, because you can truly see through our photos that he knew us, and moments that were important, and he was able to capture them because he anticipated them. In addition to that, we also met a second time for 2 hours, again, to finalize details. After that, we were in constant contact through email, and Dave had us write up a timeline for the day, so he could be prepared to capture each moment, and he did. He was with us at the hotel for our "Getting ready" shots (running back and forth from our rooms) from 12PM until after 11PM at our venue! All of this was included in the package; the value of this man is unreal! Each time I go through all 1550 shots, it's like getting to relive the day! If my father were still alive, he would've been the one shooting my wedding, no doubt, but I could not have asked for a better substitute, and I know Daddy would be thoroughly pleased with our photos, and that's just about the highest praise I can give.

Dave is the perfect combination of down to earth and consummate professional. We booked him for our outdoor wedding at a venue he'd never shot before. After one walk-through, he was good to go. He and his assistant took a huge number of photos, all of which turned out great, and turned them around in less than a week (not surprising, since Dave was early to every meeting we had). We were happy the photos aligned with our vision and definitely recommend doing not only your wedding photos, but your engagement photos, with Dave; this really helped us figure out what worked for us and what didn't. Overall, highly recommend!

He also responds in a timely manner and the quality of his work is perfect because he captures every single moment of your special day! Thank you so much Dave, we will never forget you! Love, Jessica & Jibri

Booking Dave as our photographer had to be one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding. In addition to our wedding, he did our engagement shoot, during which he spent at least 4 hours with us, trying to capture as many settings and emotion as possible. As two people who can be very awkward in front of the camera, he makes you feel very comfortable and never rushed. Throughout the entire process, he was always accessible and responsive to emails, and very accommodating to our requests. On and after our wedding, we received many compliments on his professionalism and attentiveness. Then, he was able to get all of our photos back to us before we even returned from our honeymoon, and they were absolutely beautiful. I cannot say enough good things about Dave. If you are looking for top professionalism and exquisite snapshots of your special day, Dave McIntosh Photographics is the way to go!

My husband and I absolutely LOVED working with Dave! After seeing his pictures from a coworker's family wedding and reading his reviews online, we decided to contact him -- and we are so happy that we did. Dave went out of his way to come to the rehearsal the night before the wedding at the church to make sure he knew where he and his crew could shoot (both photo and video), and he took the time to talk to the Priest as well as introduce himself to the entire wedding party -- which really meant a lot to me. The day of our wedding was absolutely amazing. Dave was with us from start to finish -- a full day of events at three different locations (which many photographers wouldn't have done). His team could not have been better -- we had 2 photographers and 2 videographers. At the reception, when my husband and I were taking photos with his other photographer, Dave was using his drone to take aerial view clips of the venue. This was one of my absolute favorite parts that made it into the video, which really gave amazing, unique footage that we will cherish forever. Working with Dave has been so great, he truly has gone above and beyond, and we could not have been happier with his work. The video was outstanding and truly surpassed all of my expectations, and the photos were just as amazing. Thank you SO MUCH, Dave! It was an absolute pleasure working with you. We would recommend Dave to anyone in a heartbeat, and hope to work with him again in the future!!

From when we first met Dave at the initial consultation he was nothing but professional, prepared and a pleasure. We met with a few photographers for our wedding and by far he was the most knowledgeable and experienced. We found him on instagram and loved the photographs that were featured and couldn't believe how reasonable his prices were compared to some other less than desirable photographers. The package included a 3 hour photo shoot at a place of our choosing. He came on time and with all the right equipment for an outdoor shoot. Dave definitely has an eye for getting the right shots in natural light and will work with you on whatever vision you see for you and your significant other. This holds true for the wedding photos as well. On the day of the wedding he was high energy and pleasant for all 10 hours which is no small fete. His second photographer, Russell, was just as professional and attentive. We received over 1500 pictures to review and I have to say it has been very hard to pick the ones that we want for our album since a vast majority of them are so amazing! Dave comes HIGHLY recommended by us and when it comes time to have family photos done, we are definitely going to reach out to Dave to have those done. For any bride and groom that is looking for a photographer for their wedding, make sure to check Dave out.

I highly recommend Dave for all wedding photography needs! From the first meeting at Starbucks to the venue walk through the weekend prior to the wedding, his attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Using the photo timeline that we had collaborated on, Dave captured wonderful photographs of family and friends that we will cherish. Having two photographers really helped to capture our large wedding party and reception from different angles and perspectives. He didn't even hesitate before jumping into a rosebush to capture the perfect shot with me and my bridesmaids. Thanks for the great service!

Dave was so great to work with! He went above and beyond with all aspects of the planning process. He is quick with email responses, we received all of our photos within days of our engagement session and wedding, and they were all great quality! It was so difficult to narrow down our top picks since they were all fantastic. He made sure to make everything personal to us and focused on what we wanted. We got so many compliments from our guests on his professionalism and the awesome pictures!

Dave was phenomenal!! Through the entire process he was extremely helpful, patient and provided excellent advice for the best types of pictures. On our wedding day Dave and his staff moved effortlessly through the entire process not missing a single picture. Everytime we look at the photos we are still mesmerized how he captured the moments. We highly recommend his services!! Ralph & Lauren Davis

I cannot say enough good things about Dave! The whole process with him was thorough and seamless. He gave ideas but also really let my husband and I decide what we wanted for the day. The day of the wedding was so easy. My husband and I both loved working with Dave and the second shooter we had, Nicolai. Both were fun and energetic, gave good directions, and were able to capture our photos beautifully. We even received our wedding photos less than a week after the event! I am so happy we went with Dave and I will use him again and again for future events and portraits. Thank you for all of your great work and all of our gorgeous photos!

David was spectacular. We met him about a year ahead of time to go over our plans and vision for the wedding photography and he was very agreeable to our plan (which was to take all the photos before the ceremony so we could enjoy our cocktail hour and reception) but he did offer his expert suggestions - such as making sure we try and get at least a few sunset shots if we wanted during the reception. David had never done a same-sex wedding so he worked closely with us on a Pinterest Board to get a feel for the style we wanted. He seemed to understand that we wanted a very relaxed and casual wedding and he was wonderful to work with. I can tell from his portfolio that he excels at all types of events as well. We appreciated how well David communicated with us prior to the wedding, even meeting us at the venue a couple weeks ahead of time to go over the placements and the lighting options for all the shots we wanted. Our wedding party was huge (36 people when the whole group was together) and he managed to very politely and tactfully organize everyone and get all the pictures we wanted in our timeframe. He was also super nice to our families and friends, something not all photographer remember to be. Our photos were ready online in less than a week so we got to look at them on our honeymoon and they're beautiful. We couldn't be more grateful for David's expertise and artistic skills. He worked alone yet somehow he managed to be everywhere at once. We fully recommend David and we thank him for providing us with such great pictures to always remember our big day.

We had a great experience with Dave. At first, we weren't even interested in doing the engagement shoot, but afterward we were so thrilled with the pictures I can't imagine not having them now. We also got compliments from other bridesmaids the day of the wedding, about how quickly and efficiently Dave and his team moved. The photos were beautiful and we are very satisfied!

To me having a photographer is one of the most important part of a wedding. So soon after we got engaged I started looking around for photographers. My venue had given me a list of some of their preferred vendors and when looking them up I came across Dave. So we then set up a phone call and we just got it off. We never met Dave until our Engagement shoot , but right after that phone call I knew he was the photographer for us. He is amazingly talented and I am so glad that he was there to capture a few of the biggest days of our lives. The best last is you get your photos back literally in less than a week. Dave you are amazing and I would recommend anyone and everyone to use him.

Dave traveled all the way to Mexico to photograph our wedding and yet again did an amazing job!! We were devastated when there was a storm the day of the wedding and figured I wouldn't get the pictures I wanted all along...But Dave managed to take such beautiful pictures of us regardless of us being in the lobby instead of beach front. He also had us to get dressed in our wedding dress/suit the next day for an outdoor photo session since we didn't really get any pictures outside at all on the wedding day! Which was really nice of him because he was technically on vacation at that point lol. I really liked how he re-created pictures that I had found on pintrest, I just emailed him a few and he knew just what to do to make it happen. Im beyond impressed by his work! He is very talented. Im so glad I picked him to be my wedding photographer!! If you are looking for someone who is professional, flexible, responsive, and creative , Dave is your guy!! :)

Dave was a pleasure to work with, his pleasant demeanor was greatly appreciated, as he was able to capture the essence of the evening without being intrusive in any way. As for the quality of the video, it was fabulous. He sent a draft and we were able to add in some footage that we wanted - before the finall edit. We received the video in just a couple of weeks after the wedding, and in the 2 weeks since we've had it- I have probably watched it 5 times- and get a bit teary every time- he did SUCH a beautiful job! Thank you - Dave!!

Let me start by saying that Dave was so amazing during our wedding day that guests were literally chanting his name as he left at the end of the night. Not joking. We actually used Dave for videography, as we already had a family friend doing the wedding. Not only did Dave travel the 2 1/2 + hours to the venue, he showed up early, captured it all, and stayed until the end of the night. He was such a pleasure to work with - calming and fun. I never felt like I "had" to do anything, and he followed me around my crazy pre-wedding photo shoot with ease. After the wedding, I expected to get the edited video within a month and it was done within a week (if that)! And let me tell you, it was perfect! The editing was beautiful, the music choices perfect, and worked with us through the process and changed a couple things I requested to be changed. It completely captured our wedding day and the joy an love behind it. And fun! I could not have imagined the video would be more perfect or more beautiful. Would DEFINITELY recommend Dave - he is a fun and great guy.
