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." ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
