Photographer Testimonials

These are just a few comments from my many customers regarding my photography. I’m very happy to say I’ve made a lot of friends through photographing events, businesses and landscapes!

Wedding Photography

We came across David’s website and loved the photos. Particularly his talent with landscape photography, as we were having an outdoor wedding. After getting in contact by email (we’re based in Australia), he suggested a skype chat to discuss the wedding and see if we thought he would be the right fit. From that point on we knew we had the right photographer for us! He was amazing. Throughout all the organising process, nothing was ever a drama, he had helpful suggestions and was always prompt replying to emails. Then on the day, he was everywhere, doing everything, while still being relaxed and wonderful with us and all our guests (they all said how great our photographer had been!). The photographs have come out better than we could ever have hoped, he captured so many special moments, both of us and all our guests. We would highly recommend David to anyone and we could’t have wished for someone better to capture our special day!

David is a fantastic wedding photographer and I highly recommend him. His photos are gorgeous: they capture moments and tell a story that keeps bringing back the great memories. Not only that but his approach is flexible, personal and non intrusive so the day is about you and your family rather than about posing. The engagement shoot and self serve photo booth set up at the reception were real bonuses of the service too.

Wedding Photography

We were planning our Nelson wedding from Dunedin and were having trouble finding a photographer over the internet. When looking for a photographer for our wedding, we really wanted someone who could really capture the special moments between the two of us. After reading David’s website and how he structured the wedding day and what was included in his wedding package we were convinced.  This was confirmed when we met David and we knew straight away we wanted David as our photographer and knew he would be able to capture our day perfectly. 

David is an incredibly hard working photographer who is always trying to capture that special moment and he does an outstanding job. He was very professional and exceptionally easy to work with, especially during the planning stages which were all done via emails. David provided us with a pre-wedding shoot to get us more comfortable in front of the camera as well as attending our ceremony rehearsal. We couldn’t have asked for someone more dedicated and extremely talented. He is great with direction and his assistant Lasma is also a very talented photographer. We were more than happy with our wedding photos and everyone we have shown cannot believe how amazing they are and really impressed with the different angles that were taken to get the perfect shot. We would highly recommend David to anyone and we cannot thank him more for what he achieved for our wedding.

We were so impressed with David. He worked so amazingly hard, and also made a massive effort to get to know us and our families, but then faded into the background when needed. I highly recommend David to anyone who wants a photographer that works extremely hard and takes beautiful photos.

“We came across David Chadwick from an internet search for photographers in the Nelson area, we had arranged several appointments with various photographers and David was the first one we were due to meet.
After we had meet David, we canceled all the other appointments; David made us instantly feel confident in his ability and comfortable in his presence. This was key for myself in particular as though not shy, not especially keen on getting photographs taken of myself. David showed professionalism in wanting to attend our rehearsal to ascertain particular shots and was great with giving realistic timings for the day. Now our day was magical, however changeling for David, but again his professionalism showed through as it was pouring with rain for most part of the day, and still managed to complete the task with some amazing shots of our an outdoor wedding. The time and dedication he put toward our day was beyond we could comprehend and expected. We would not hesitate to recommend David for your event, and know that he will do a fantastic job of capturing those special moments.”
