"David is incredibly talented & he can turn any precious memory into a work of art!"


"We're blown away by how you were not only able to capture the beauty of the backdrop but also create such a relaxing environment where we could completely be ourselves.

We were completely unaware a professional photo shoot could be fun!"


"From the minute we reached out, David and Birgit could not have been more organized, communicative, or helpful, from scheduling to suggesting locations based on our family's needs.


"David is a gifted photographer and when you combine that with the natural beauty of the Big Island you get magic."
