Testimonials

Alia Rdissi, Wedding Coordinator at Bell of the Ball
“David is one of my favorite photographers with whom to work. He enjoys what he does and does it enthusiastically every time. When given a client’s budget, he proposes within those boundaries and is flexible and accommodating. On event day, David is always prompt and efficient and always works with regard to the overall evening’s schedule. After the event, he’s the fastest photographer I’ve ever seen in getting photo proofs online – I’m consistently amazed at how speedily he works, especially given the exceptional quality of his work. I recommend David to anyone looking for a talented photographer who is personable, competitively priced, and as excited about their wedding day as they are!”

Caryl Tieken, owner at Sideshow Photo Booth
“Ok – WHY I haven’t reviewed him before is beyond me, but this is actually the second time I have worked with David.  He did a private shoot for me and a friend a few years ago that was so unbelievably amazing that words cannot describe.  He is an artist with that camera! I tell you!

My review now is prompted by the engagement shoot he just did last weekend for my me and my fiancé. SPEECHLESS.  He absolutely encapsulated who we are – I cannot stand super posed, generic everyone-wears-black-or-white-shirts and- jeans photos and goes to the park photos – ugh!  We live in Austin and have a lot of different interests.  We chose several locations, all outdoors and within minutes from each other.  We crawled around and hiked up steep inclines just to  get some really fun, out of the ordinary shots.  He has such an eye and knows exactly how  to capture the money shot moments without you even knowing it!  If I could give him 100 stars I would – seriously.  I don’t even care what my wedding photos look like – unfortunately he will not be our photographer as we are getting married in Hawaii – as these shots of us show who we really are.  I cannot thank him enough as these pics will last us a life time.

If you are even slightly questioning who to use as your wedding photographer, look no further.  You may find some out there that are cheaper, but let me tell you – YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR and once it’s done, it’s done. You can’t re-do your wedding pics.  These days everyone thinks they can buy an expensive camera and call themselves a photographer – not the case. Check out his website – look at his work.  He’s an absolute pro and such a delight to work with.  Trust me. You will thank me. 🙂  I can’t wait until he can shoot our kids!  (That sounds funny!)”

Kristen Lawler, Pilot at Continental Express
“David was the photographer at our wedding which was scheduled for the weekend that hurricane Ike hit Houston. It goes without saying that he is a fantastically talented photographer and we cherish the pictures he took, but he also has integrity. We had an improvised wedding the Thursday before our scheduled Saturday wedding (Ike hit Friday). Many of the vendors we had hired evacuated and kept our money. Not only did David stay in town but he went above and beyond our originally agreed upon package that we had purchased. When picking a photographer for an important occasion, or anyone for that matter, I have learned that the kind of person you are hiring is just as important as the quality of their work. David exceeded our expectations in both areas and we are forever grateful to him for that.”

Radhika Day, Publisher at Weddings in Houston Magazine
“David is an amazing, gifted photographer with a great unobtrusive style and a wonderful personality. Very professional, and easy to work with, he always delivers.”

Nancy Brewster, mother of bride, aunt of bride and mother of bridesmaid
“I just happened to stumble across the wedding pictures for Rebecca and Joe under clients last weekend. (Okay, I had been looking all the time!)  You are amazing!  I cannot begin to tell you how much it means to have  an artist capture not just the images; but the emotions and personalities of such a special time. For the Brewster family, For Kristy and Chandler and Rebecca and Joe, you and David have covered the range. Bridal’s at Hermann Park and Varner-Hogg Plantation.  Stately St. Paul’s to Becca’s hometown, childhood church of St. Micheal’s the Archangel. Receptions at the Houston Club to Surfside’s Stahlman Park. I have experienced you both as Aunt of the Bride, mother of a bridesmaid “graduating” to mother of the bride and across it all you both have consistently captured the essence of the couple and the event, probably in ways you are not even aware of. We have been blessed with your talent. On top of everything else, it was a blast!  THANK YOU!”

Cathy Reinbeck-Orlando, Vice President of Marketing at K. Hovnanian Homes
“I had the pleasure of working with David on three occasions and he was FABULOUS! Not only was his work wonderful, but he was is a great person and so much fun to work with. He did an amazing job of capturing three of the most important times in my life. I’d hire him again in a heartbeat.”

Krystal Pfluger-Scott, Associate at the firm Jones, Walker, Waechter, Poitevent, Carrère & Denègre L.L.P.
“There were two things I wanted in my wedding photographer: Someone who would feel more like a friend than just a photographer I hired, and someone whose photographs moved me. David Jones accomplished both. Now, when I look at my wedding photographs, I remember just how it felt to walk down the aisle, to kiss my new husband for the first time, to dance with my father while he gave me advice…David’s pictures captured that most important day perfectly.”

Bill Scott, Division President at Linbeck Group

“James and I want to thank you so much for the beautiful pictures of our wedding! After truly enjoying working with you at my sister’s wedding, and seeing the beautiful album you made for her, we wouldn’t have trusted anyone else with our wedding photos. The pictures are great, and the album tells such a wonderful story of our day. We cannot thank you enough for our amazing work. The fantastic images of our wedding day are so invaluable to us, we are so grateful. You are so much fun and easy to work with, we enjoyed getting to know you more! Thanks for making everything stress free, you were such a great help especially when our wedding coordinator didn’t show up! I don’t know what we would have done without you. Thanks again for everything, the pictures are wonderful! You’re the best!”

We had two ceremonies, one Hindu and one Christian, and what I was most impressed with was that he had captured all of the important pieces and rituals of the Hindu ceremony with precision, accuracy, and creativity. Either he has superb instincts or he took the time to familiarize himself with the ceremony – either way, we could not have been more pleased!”
