The single most gratifying part of my job as a photographer is seeing a smiles on my clients’ faces when they get the opportunity to see the images from their wedding, engagement session or portrait session.  My goal is to capture the moments for them, the memories that they will be able to look back on and cherish for years to come, and hearing the kind words and and appreciation from them never fails to put a smile on MY face.  I just wanted to share some of their very kind words and testimonials with you!Lauren and Matt - Wedding-577Lauren and Matt – Wedding and Engagement Session

“Choosing Dave DiCello Photography was easily one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.  He was professional from start to finish.  He provided lots of great suggestions throughout the entire process.  The weather was incredibly cold on the day we took our engagement pictures, but Dave was very upbeat and kept us going throughout the shoot.  He provided the edited photos in a very timely manner.  On the day of our wedding, he was there bright & early to get pictures of the guys before their golf game at 8 am then captured lots of great photos of the girls getting ready throughout the day.  He was very energetic and accommodating.  He also had great suggestions on areas of the resort that would provide great photo opportunities and was able to capture a countless number of memorable moments throughout the night.  We received a lot of compliments from our guests who interacted with him.  Once the wedding had passed, he provided us with a very quick turnaround on our wedding photos.  We have also made several additional print orders and he continues to go out of his way to make sure we have what we want.  He did a fantastic job designing our album and we truly could not be happier with his work.”

We had no idea who to go to for engagement pictures but I couldn’t be happier that we chose Dave. We met with Dave on a sunny, snowy Sunday morning at Roberto Clemente Statue and things couldn’t have been more perfect.  Right away Dave was personable and easy to talk to and was so much fun to work with.  The best thing about our photo shoot was his sense of direction when creating poses for us and his enthusiasm for creativity! Our favorite pictures were taken on a swingset in Allegheny Commons Park. We had no intentions of taking pictures on a swingset that day but because of his creative spirit we got some AWESOME shots that we will cherish forever. My only regret is that we are getting married in Syracuse, NY and won’t be having him take our wedding pictures! But I am definitely calling Dave next time I need professional pictures taken!”

“We hired Dave DiCello Photography to shoot our wedding and engagement photos and things couldn’t have turned out more wonderfully. His pictures were gorgeous and achieved through a blend of utilizing our own ideas with his own suggestions. We were concerned that past our own ideas we could get stuck with a photographer who wasn’t able to bring some creativity to the table, or one that pushed too much creative agenda, but with Dave, it was instead a perfect confluence of both. He was professional and delivered as promised, he was on time, and really worked hard and we ended up with some beautiful pictures of not only us, but of our families, guests and venue. After all that goes into planning the details of a wedding it is nice to have comfort knowing that we lucked out with a photographer we could trust in capturing all of those fine details; flowers, chairs, bridal gown, etc. In addition Dave even showed up early the morning of the wedding and shot photos of my Nieces and Nephews running around my parents property with my Dad. He really took the time to capture it all! We look forward to seeing more photos of our wedding and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We could only hope to have Dave DiCello shoot our future family someday and many of the events to come. Thank You Dave! :)”

“Not only is Dave a wonderful photographer but he is also a wonderful person. Everyone at the wedding thought he was part of the family. It was a pleasure to work with him.  He was very creative and provided unique ideas to us. He really took the time to listen to what we wanted out of our wedding photos and understand our vision.  He gave amazing direction when needed with a wedding party of 20+ people.  It’s amazing, when you receive your photos and they take you back specific moments in time. You can relive your entire day again.  There were so many wonderful photos we had a hard time choosing which photos to print.”

“Mike and I were a little apprehensive about spending 3 awkward hours taking engagement pictures with someone we didn’t know. However, even from our initial conversation I could tell Dave was the kind of guy you just feel comfortable around. The day of our shoot was super cold, windy and snowy. He offered to reschedule if we wanted, but we thought it might be fun to catch the fresh snow. Dave was so positive and fun to be around the entire time. Our photos turned out awesome – he captured exactly what we were looking for, beautifully. We brought our 70 lb crazy boxer to take some picture with and Dave did awesome with him! We are both so happy with our decision to get our engagement picture done by Dave, and have received many compliments too!”

“Kelli and I met Dave for engagement pictures on a Sunday. Dave immediately made us feel like he was a lifelong friend, and had us looking forward to a fun day of pictures. From the North Shore and the stadiums, to the fountain at the Point, and up to Mt. Washington, Dave captured our vision perfectly. The turnaround was very quick, and the final prints looked incredible! Family and friends kept asking how Dave shut down traffic for the bridge pictures. We couldn’t have asked for better pictures, or a better person to take them…Thanks Dave!”

“Lucas and I have never taken professional pictures together, therefore, we did not know what to expect with our session. Prior to meeting Dave (in person), he was extremely kind and flexible towards our schedule. Lucas is in the United States Navy and Dave worked around his schedule to make sure that we could get our pictures done during his little time home. We didn’t quite know where to do our photo shoot but we wanted to do it outside (thankfully the weather was beautiful) and he suggested Frick Park and a few shots on a bridge downtown. It turned out to be just what we wanted and he knew the area very well. Once we arrived, Dave took us under his wings and made the session very enjoyable right from the start. Dave came with two cameras, a giant smile on his face, and an enthusiastic attitude about shooting our engagement pictures. He captured our true personalities in our pictures beautifully and effortlessly; we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We had an awesome time and are extremely happy that we chose Dave for our pictures. We’ve received numerous compliments about our pictures and refer Dave every time!”

“My fiance and I took our engagement photos with Dave and were thrilled with the experience. What could have been two very uncomfortable hours turned into casual conversation and some great moments captured. Dave was very accommodating, shooting in several locations, and an overall pleasure to work with.”

Meghan and Zac – Engagement and Wedding

“The wedding planning process can be hectic, stressful, and full of difficult decisions. However, perhaps the easiest decision that my husband and I made while planning for our wedding was choosing Dave DiCello as our wedding photographer. Dave was prompt in responding to us and was eager to answer any and all questions that we had along the way. He was also incredibly flexible! My husband and I threw out the idea of having two engagement photo sessions and Dave was thrilled by our idea and was happy to help us capture the excitement of our engagement. As our wedding got closer, Dave was approachable and open to our desires and ideas for our wedding photos. It was very important to me that our wedding photos were something that would allow us to relive our wedding day for years to come…Dave achieved just that. Our wedding photos were breathtaking and truly captured the magic of our special day. Choosing Dave DiCello as our wedding photographer was one of the best wedding decisions that we made! He was professional, prompt, affordable, and above all was able to capture our beautiful, memorable first steps as husband and wife.”

“We had the best time taking our engagement photos with Dave! It was by far our best ever experience with a photographer. He was so easy to get along with and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed the entire time. Everything felt so natural with him, and that came through in the photos– nothing looked awkward or staged, everything was incredible! Also, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention that he has an amazing eye for the perfect shot! He knew exactly when and where to place us to capture the lighting and scenery just right! We have recommended him to everyone we know, and will continue to do so! He is by far a cut above the rest!”

“Dave DiCello is easily one of our favorite photographers to work with! We hired Dave to shoot some family portraits of the two us and our 4 year old golden retriever. Even though she’s still a puppy and very hyper, Dave was able to calm her down and get AMAZING shots of all of us! All of the pictures were so great which made it very hard for us to choose our favorites! In a little over an hour, Dave took so many photos, which we were very pleased with. We took pictures at South Park and Dave came up with some really creative ways for us to pose together as a family. Even though we were in a park, we have so many different backgrounds and poses that it looks like we went to a lot of different locations! Dave was a pleasure to work with and we’ve received so many compliments on our family pictures! We will definitely hire Dave as a photographer again and I would definitely recommend him to anyone needed a photographer for any event, not just family portraits!”
