What clients are saying..

One thing with having a destination wedding is that you can't really meet with a lot of the vendors leaving most of the work to phone calls and emails. I looked at Daves website and was immediately impressed with just his homepage and then when I looked further I thought I need to have this guy at my wedding, holy smokes! Dave replied to all my emails within an hour or two which is fantastic and we had an hour phone conversation 2 weeks before the wedding to go over final details. once I met Dave and he started taking pictures in the bridal lounge I knew immediately that my photos were going to be beautiful. He has an artistic eye and really knows his stuff. Our ceremony was on the beach at cape cod and he showed us a little preview of some of the pictures on his camera and out of the 2 or 3 I saw I couldn't believe my eyes!! Dave is so ridiculously talented and a true professional. He takes charge and has a vision and goes with it. Not only is he so talented but he is a wicked nice guy!! Eric and I loved talking with him and are so grateful for all the great shots he took of our wedding. He is the real deal. Even our guests that were watching as he did wedding party and family pictures, commented to us, saying "wow your photographer is the real deal." If you want incredible wedding photos that will make your jaw drop, contact Dave he will not let you down!!!! He is the very best!! I highly recommend him!!!! Thanks again Dave you're the best!!!!

Lots of Fun!

Dave Donato was the photographer for my wedding. He is a lot of fun and very original in terms of mixing traditional type wedding pictures in with candids and less traditional posed pictures. Great experience, and I really enjoyed working with him.

Dave is an amazing photographer! Not only can you tell that he loves what he does, but he is truly fantastic!! Looking at our photo collection you would think we had multiple photographers, but he literally runs all over to get different shots at different angles and captures every moment! Our pictures came out absolutely gorgeous, now the hard part is to make our selection!! Dave is really easy to work with as he is so personable! All of our guests, and those that have seen our pictures, have agreed, we truly had the best photographer! Thank you, Dave! ~Christina & Mike

Dave,

I saw the pics last night, and all I can say is WOW!. My daughter looked at them with Sasha and I, and you made us all look like we were movie stars or something.

Seriously though, I don't know how you did two things at once. First, you were everywhere, taking pics constantly, like there were 6 of you taking pics. I don't know how you did it? You must be in great shape. At one point, I was like, "Did he have to climb a tree for that pic?" Not sure how you did it. If I didn't know better, I would think there were multiple photographers.

Second, the beauty and artistry behind the pics, the shot selection, the post production work you did.. really... from one artistic guy to another, I am very highly impressed. These pics will go on my desk and on my facebook for life. We will be printing ones of the family for our home.

Honestly Dave, your pictures will be a part of our family for our entire life, and maybe for generations after. Incredible.

In the future, whenever we need a photographer, we will be calling you. In addition, we will ABSOLUTELY recommend you to anyone, and let them see our pics as a reference. Actually, your pics on our FB and or walls at home and our offices will be your calling card. We will have your mobile and email address on stand by.

Excellent work, what a professional, and an incredible warm, generous personality to boot, with perfect customer service as a business person. I'm amazed!

Hi Dave,

I didn't get to say bye to you yesterday, so I just wanted to say Thank you so much for everything. Of course the weather is absolutely beautiful today, but I am hoping that the wind/clouds make our pictures even better and will work out in our favor.

Everyone kept telling us how much fun they had, and how it was the "best wedding ever."

Thanks so much again!!!

Dave,

You truly were a professional and a gentleman on Sunday. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You not only took amazing photographs, but you actually made the experience of the wedding richer and created additional memories that would have been lost in the foggy haze an adrenaline filled ceremony.

Thanks for your kindness, and slowing us down (not to mention of course your artistry).

Please let us know if there is any survey or rating system you would like for us to fill out to properly thank you.

Of course, we will recommend you, WHENEVER, we are asked for a great photographer.

All the best,
Sam and Sasha

Hi Dave,

Ryan and I wanted to send a huge THANK YOU to both you and Lindsey for making our wedding reception such a success!

You were awesome to work with before the event and we felt totally confident that everything would go smoothly - which it did! Lindsey did a great job with the music and making sure everything went as planned. People keep telling us what a blast they had and how well everything flowed - it was a fantastic party!

We've also been getting rave reviews about the photobooth - it really was such a fun addition, and Eric did a great job of facilitating. Everyone loved it!!

Thanks again, and I'll be sure to write you a great online review! We'll see you at Sharon and Dan's wedding in December :)

Best,
Michelle & Ryan Jackson
