After interviewing several photographers in town, I stumbled across Ardore Photography. Wow! After the interview, I just knew that Dave was the perfect photographer for my wedding. I love that he doesn't just snap photos, he looks for the perfect shots that tell a story. Every photo is edited so beautifully! I can't tell you how many compliments I got on my engagement photos - they were very "Hollywood Glam"! I have since recommended Dave to many of my friends, one of which used him for her wedding this weekend. I highly recommend using Ardore for all of your photography needs.- Gail & Micky

Dave was a great photographer. He was more than generous with his time in helping us to capture great photos, and he was very easy-going and approachable throughout the process. Dave has a great skill for capturing candid shots, especially those catching people in the middle of a great laugh or smile. We enjoyed working with him and his lovely wife Tracy for our engagements, my bridals, and our wedding photos. We look forward to framing our favorite photos and having an album to remind us of our special day. Thank you, Dave, for working so hard to make our wedding memories last!- Lisa & Grady

Upon meeting Dave, my husband and I instantly felt a connection with him. His passion for photography was apparent immediately and that passion continued to shine through our engagement session and our wedding day. Being around Dave and his team (his lovely wife and son) are a pleasure and you can't help but smile and laugh! We received our engagement proofs and wedding day proofs so fast our friends and family couldn't believe it. The pictures turned out great - from candids, formals, and his creative photographs. If we need a photographer again, Dave will be the only photographer we will contact.- Janelle & Dan

Dave did a fantastic job with our wedding! He was able to make our wedding day that much more beautiful with his photography. Dave is so professional and on the day of the wedding spent 14 hrs with us....from the moment of getting ready until the very last dance. All our pictures and photo books were given to us in a very timely manner. Thank you Dave once again so much for everything!- Eliza & Geronimo

We were so truly blessed to have such a wonderful photographer. Dave is very patient and kind always making certain everything is exactly as it should be. He went above and beyond our expectations as a photographer and we will be forever grateful for all of the memories he created for not Kate and Stephen but for our families as well. He gave us memories that will last a lifetime. He said in the very beginning when we first met that his goal was to tell a story without words, just let the pictures speak for themselves and that is just what he did. My advise to anyone considering him as a photographer; you will not be disappointed and if you are lucky enough to be on his books, well than you are lucky... We will be using him in the future I am certain of that. Here's to you Dave and Ardore Photography, raise your glass high you deserve it!!! Best Regards, Kellie Jopling Mother of the BrideI can honestly say that my entire engagement/bridal/wedding experience with Dave was with out a doubt AMAZING. I cannot express my gratitude for him and all of the amazing memories that he captured. I highly recommend him to any and all! Not only did I have a blast working with him, but also my husband, parents, wedding party, KIDS, and family!! We told him from the beginning we wanted unique pictures and something that no one had ever seen before...Dave went above and beyond. I remember looking at our pictures for the first time saying, "Is that really me?" He uses the highest quality everything and treats his customers as kings and queens! It was an incredible experience...We CANNOT WAIT to work with Ardore Photography again! When we look back on our wedding day, whether we are showing friends, children or family...Because of Dave, our pictures will truly tell our story without words. We wish you all the luck in the world! And want to truly thank you for making our memories last! You and your family are FABULOUS! Love, Kate and Stephen

Dave is an artist. If you want stand ups and formal shots he can make that happen. But his art is in his ability to capture each moment for the bridal couple. His keen eye sees beyond the obvious. He is able to bring into every photograph the environment, the lighting, the shapes and textures that make good photography great. This summer Dave shot our daughter’s wedding in San Antonio. From 9:00 am to near midnight, Dave and his assistant followed us around. They were everywhere. But you never really know it. They are unobtrusive while they capture candid and intimate moments of the bridal couple’s most important day. We especially liked the fact that he knew the venue, the St. Anthony Hotel so well, that he was able to maximize the limited time we had available spent there. The result has been a series of magazine quality photos of the entire party. The most important aspect of his professionalism is his attention to the client. Dave was prepared and made it easy for all of us. Next time your in the Alamo city and need a terrific event photographer, remember Ardore Photography! Roberto Gutierrez, Father of the Bride And from the Bride...What beautiful work! Dave and his assistant captured so many beautiful moments at our wedding. From the ceremony to the reception, the priest to the mariachis, the pictures showcase all the big moments and little details, making memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you, Ardore Photography!- Tina & Tristan
