  • Dave was very professional and worked with us to capture all of our magical moments! He had some great ideas with taking our photos at certain time of the afternoon and evening to get the perfect natural lighting. He was very patient with me while I planned everything with him over the phone. He even showed up to my venue during my tasting to meet me in person and finalize the little details (I live in San Diego and married in Knoxville)! I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a professional and personable wedding photographer!

  • David recently photographed our wedding. He was very accommodating and captured the day perfectly! Before the event, we met to go over shots I wanted and locations for different pictures.

  • If you are looking for a wedding photographer do not thing twice! Book David Now! David comes highly recommended and you do not want any other photographer. David communicates swiftly, he is professional, and very personable. His prices are very reasonable and he is flexible. My pictures turned out gorgeous! David captured every shot. Once I viewed all of the pictures, they told a story. I did not need a videographer because he captured every moment. I am beyond pleased with David. He gets a 10 out of 10. Thank me later :)

  • We hired Dave for our June 7, 2019 wedding. We received our photos the other day and are in love with Dave and Debbie's work! My husband and I were impressed with his quick delivery of the photos and overall professionalism throughout the entire wedding process. He got the photos to us within the time frame that he said he would. Our wedding plans changed multiple times, yet Dave was always so patient and easy-going which helped ease my stress. Some mishaps happened on our wedding day, but both Dave and his wife handled it with grace and put us as ease about it. He was very flexible with talking on the phone (I am an hour behind him and have to work pretty late in the evenings). My husband and I are both self-conscious about getting photos taken, but Dave has a way of easing his clients and getting pictures without making you feel uncomfortable. We felt like professional models on that day with his guidance. We highly recommend Dave and Debbie. Thank you so much!

  • we were an out of town wedding. David was so responsive and so incredibly helpful. Any time I had questions he was able to answer the phone or even email (which worked better for me) My day would not have been a success without him. He helped to keep us on time and knew the venue better than us. our pictures are absolutely stunning, and my family cried after seeing the pictures. I wish there were more than 5 stars so give cause he deserves them all.

  • David was very flexible and willing to work with us on our budget. He was always quick to respond to all of our questions and concerns throughout the wedding planning process. On the wedding day, he was great at corralling our guests to get the pictures done quickly. Most important, the pictures were incredible. We were thrilled not only with the number of great pictures, but with how quickly the pictures arrived at our door.

  • David Payne was an integral part of my wedding day and his services are invaluable. Aside from the stunning photos we received (just three weeks after the wedding), the wedding day itself would never had run so smoothly if it weren't for him. David was highly professional, knew exactly how to direct people in photos and how to schedule the days events, and we were so lucky to have him shoot our wedding!

  • David was great! He made sure everything I asked for was done and was so nice. His prices were very reasonable when a lot of photographers in Knoxville are very over priced. And we got are pictures back pretty fast. I would definitely recommend him to capture your big events.

  • We got some good photos but should have paid for two photographers instead of just one. David seemed rushed and unenthusiastic about being at our wedding. I feel like it shown through a lot of the photos.

    responded with the following comments.

    Hi Laura, So sorry to hear you were less than excited about your photos. Your correspondence sugested that you were very happy with your photos “They are great! Thank you! ” I am a little perplexed with your review. I wish you would have contacted me. As I remember you were very rushed and members of your wedding party were late which did delay things. I am very enthusiastic about my work although your wedding did have several challeges including getting a wedding party of 23 people ready on 2 houseboats and the logistics of moving the wedding party and yourselves to a scenic area to shoot as you requested. There was little I could do since everything was done at a Marina and there was no where to really shoot a group that big. If there is anything I can do to make your experiance a better one please let me know. As I remember you did not want the expense of a second photographer nore was there much room to work the number of guests, 2 videographers, and, I believe it was your niece all shooting pictures at the same time on a dock. I do feel I was in a rush to meet your timeline. I had little input into that. Please let me know what I can do to enhance your experiance and make your experience with me a better one. Dave
