As a professional in the design and fashion world, I’ve seen the work of many photographers throughout the world, but I’m VERY impressed by the photos you took at our reception…you are truly not only a very well accomplished professional, but a true artist with a quick eye for ‘capturing the moment’ beautifully and artistically!!! The place of the reception was a VERY dark and a challenging space w/in which to take photos with many concentrated light sources of all types and, yet, each and every photo you took not only takes advantage of the space and light, but you succeeded in capturing not only the feel and the spirit of the space, but, most incredibly, of THE Moment…AND…of the spirit/feel of the PEOPLE themselves, which takes skill and artistic talent beyond the levels of 99% of the ‘so called’ professional photographers. Mai & I went through countless photographers’ albums in Japan to select one in Japan, but the photos the other photographer (who was very good, as a wedding photographer) took almost seem like merely beautifully and professionally taken ‘snapshots’, in comparison to your work. I’ve seen the work of some other ‘accomplished and true professional photo journalists’, such as yourself, but you’re not just a ‘documentarian’, but with a true artistic eye and a feel for the moment, which, at the end of the day, is what separates one photograph from the other….and makes a photograph extra special and precious, above all others. Thank you for the beautiful work beyond which I expected. If you ever need and/or would like me to write a note of recommendation, I’d be more than happy to.
I LOVE pictures so choosing a photographer was one of the most important aspects of planning our wedding. We made the right choice in Garrett Davis! Garrett went above and beyond to capture every moment and every detail of this special time beginning with our engagement shoot, to the wedding day, followed by the Trash the Dress romp in the ocean. Our engagement shoot was at the LA County Fair where Garrett not only walked the grounds finding the best colors and array of venues, but also went on the Ferris Wheel and other rides to capture the most perfect shots to depict who we are as a couple. Fast forward to our dream wedding where his professionalism, precision, eye for details, and work ethic had everyone in the wedding party and all of our friends and family eagerly anticipating the final outcome. Garrett’s personality instantly had us at ease and we felt so comfortable around him. His turnaround time to not only get us preview pictures but our edited shots must be the fastest in the business. He has an open line of communication and was always willing to do whatever he could to capture each moment so we could look back on our pictures and have our wedding brought back to life. The morning after our wedding, after he had been up for most of the night, he came to our hotel to shoot a Trash the Dress session! We had so much fun together splashing around in the ocean and running down the beach. Like we said before he is willing to do anything to get the perfect shot. We absolutely love all of our pictures and we love Garrett Davis Photography! We highly recommend Garrett as a photographer. We had a perfect experience with him and could not have asked for anything better.
We really loved your style. Our pictures look so alive. Not at all like the stiff staged photos you often see from weddings. You really captured the personality of our wedding and the people there. We have both looked at the photos again and again. Thank you for giving us these lasting memories of the day! Your manner was also much appreciated. You managed to be both a ‘fly on the wall’ and always right there when we needed you! You made taking photos fun.
