David Hill is an award-winning wedding photographer who has been covering weddings in Austin, Texas, and all over the state for 10 years. He spends a lot of time being herded by crazy dogs. When they allow him to escape, he can probably shoot your wedding. As a destination wedding photographer and experienced traveler, David is available for weddings nationwide and in countries not currently engaged in civil war (Worldwide? Really, other photographers?). We should also mention that David Hill is a San Francisco Wedding Photographer in addition to his long history in Texas. Drawing from over 16 years of professional photography experience--including nine years of pure digital photography methods--David will shoot your wedding or event in a modern, laid-back and often boldly edited style, mixing a palette of vivid colors with black and whites and creative lighting techniques. Your wedding will most likely look better than you remember it (which we hope is a good thing).

David shoots wedding photography and events without distracting amounts of scripting or pretension, but we do take time to get those important group pictures and portraits that you want, if you want them. With us, it's up to you! David trained classically as a news photographer, in a darkroom with actual film, and at his first real newspaper job. As such, we always work with a strong influence of wedding photojournalism, mixed with other creative photography techniques.

Covering All of Texas
David's most recent Texas wedding was at the Petroleum club in Tyler, and he is proud to continue serving the entire state of Texas after having lived there for 36 years. However, please be aware that our time for pre-event meetings in Texas is limted due to spending most of the time in California these days. Because many clients book Austin weddings from outside of Texas over the phone, this will be nothing new for many people. For clients local to Austin, it will be more challenging to meet beforehand, but still the same great photography on your wedding day!
We highly recommend David. He is a very talented photographer that made us feel at ease, but at the same time confident that he was capturing all the memorable moments. He was great to work with!
We got married this past November and had David do our Wedding and Engagement photos.  Without exaggerating... David is to photography what Kandinsky is to painting (j/k).

We could not be happier with our wedding and engagement photos.  We discussed out style with David and he captured exactly what we wanted and more.  The wedding photos capture the emotion of the day and the fun of the reception.  Everyone who has seen them is amazed with the quality of the shots and the vibrance of the colors.

  The engagement session was one of the most fun days my wife and I have ever had.  We were shooting in 100 degree weather and it was a blast.  I am outgoing but my wife is reserved and a bit camera shy.  David made her feel at ease and gave us exactly what we were looking for.  The photos show expressions of joy and laughter that can not be obtained through phony poses.

  When we first saw David's website, we wanted to use him but hired someone else to save a bit of money.  After the worst engagement session ever with the other guy, we fired the other guy (and lost our $600 deposit) and hired David like we should have done from the beginning.  We like David as a person and he was perfect at the wedding.  He got the photos without being bossy or getting in the way.
