Wedding Photography

I have been artfully photographing Martha’s Vineyard Wedding celebrations since 2005. My approach is that of a creative photojournalist, aiming to be as unobtrusive and invisible as possible, while focusing my camera on the many scripted, unscripted and organic moments throughout the event  - A fly on the wall, so to speak, with unwavering attention to detail. But there are moments where my craft goes beyond, seizing opportunities to create more stylized photographs, using the many environmental backdrops the Island offers while sculpting available and artificial light to create truly magical images. This blend of approaches has been my style evolved over my career spanning over 200 amazing wedding celebrations and separates me from other wedding photographers.

 

Thank you for looking and I invite you to have a conversation about how I can create some treasured photographs for you.

Review by D. Bettencourt 

"Choosing David Welch as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made in the entire wedding process! Firstly, he was extremely easy to work with. We met several times prior to the wedding and went over everything in detail. He answered all of our questions and made us feel calm and confident for the wedding day. On the day of our wedding David was so fun to work with. His calm demeanor totally set the tone. He was extremely flexible while always being cognizant of keeping us on track so we were sure to enjoy ourselves. We had the pleasure to also have him shoot our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. Upon receiving the photos, we could not believe the quality and the amount of memories that he was able to capture. We feel so lucky to be able to have such beautiful memories from such a special day. I can't say enough great things about David. He is talented, professional and truly a great guy."  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"As a bride, finding the perfect photographer to capture our wedding day was one of my first priorities. I knew this would be a struggle when I was researching online and found an immense amount of photographers on Martha’s Vineyard. When we were in contact with David, we immediately knew we wanted him to be a part of our most special day! David proved to be beyond perfect. He is extremely professional, easy to communicate with and most importantly a genuine person who is talented beyond words.
Because we lived in CT, the majority of our communication was through email, text or phone calls. He was quick to respond with creative and unique places to shoot on our wedding day. He was thorough and ensured all of our requests were fulfilled. He even met us at our rehearsal the night before to go over details for our ceremony. Our wedding party couldn’t say nicer words about David. He made everyone feel at ease and was very flexible and fun. One of our groomsmen told us how he’s never had such a great time taking pictures with a wedding party. He expressed how David was so easy to work with and made what could’ve been a strenuous/dull process, a memorable experience.
After we received our pictures, we were absolutely blown away and were so proud to share them with all of our friends and family (many tears were shed ☺). Not only did David take the most beautiful photographs, he was able to capture the emotion from that day and we will treasure that for the rest of our lives. To this day we tell everyone how wonderful he is and how grateful we were to have him be a part of our wedding day! We look forward to having David take pictures in the future ahead." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Review by M. Fishman

"I cannot write enough good things about David Welch. I spoke to a lot of photographers before deciding on David and I knew the first time I talked to him that he was going to be “the one.” He was incredibly flexible with what we wanted and went through step by step how the day would go. He even came to our rehearsal so that everyone would be comfortable with him before the big day. On the day of the wedding I barely even noticed he was there. He just blended right in like he was one of the family. Everyone at the wedding loved him and this is all before we even saw the pictures. The pictures were PERFECT. He really captured our entire day and every time I look through them I feel that I’m reliving the day all over again. There’s an organic feel to his photography that I just love and every picture was fantastic. There is no way anyone could go wrong with choosing David." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
