Jennifer & Joey, Wedding Day, Redlands, CA:

Jen and I cannot begin to express how amazed we are with the job you did with our wedding photos.  We had no doubt that we were going to be thoroughly pleased with our photos, but as usual you more than exceeded our expectations!

And to top it all off, not only were you the most amazing and talented wedding photographer we have ever met, you are also an amazing person.

Jen and I are truly blessed to have found you (I think this was implied when we hired you on the spot!), and have you photograph one of the most important days of our lives.  All of our friends and family could not agree more, they absolutely LOVE the pictures as well!

As we mentioned to you before, my Grandmother was actually brought to tears when she first saw them!  We cannot begin to express how many other compliments we received during and after the wedding in regard to you and your work!  Thank you so much for capturing our special day in a manner only you could have.

Not only does your work reflect our day even better than Jen and I can remember, you put a very special and artistic twist on everything!

I hope you don’t mind hanging out with us, because you have earned our business for life!

Hope to see you soon for some nachos & Newcastles!

What a joy to watch your slide show!!!!!!  I ADORE THE PICTURES!  I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE REST!  I love your eye for details and your perfection.  I love the bright vibrant colors and the captured smiles.

Thank you, David, for knocking it out of the park and doing such a phenomenal, fantastic, utterly terrific job!  I’d praise you and the photos more, share more of my complimentary sentiments, and gush my heartfelt appreciation in many more words, but I stayed up way past my bedtime watching the awesome slide show several times, with lots of rewinds and pauses and enjoyment.
Then I viewed every individual photo posted.

Stephanie & Lester, Wedding, Hacienda Heights, CA (from Stephanie’s Sister; Sheri:
“Oh David,

I just saw the slide-show you have created so far of Stephanie and Lester’s wedding. It is absolutely beautiful! And here I thought I had cried all my happy tears last Saturday, but just “reliving” the joy of that day through your photos and seeing how you captured the happiness in Stephanie’s eyes brought more tears to my eyes. Thank you so much for helping to make Stephanie’s (and Lester’s!) wedding day such a memorable and enjoyable one.

I know how much they loved having you there, and I sincerely enjoyed watching you work throughout the night to capture each and every special moment. You were amazing, and you weren’t afraid to “have fun” with us and take the silly shots as well as the beautifully poised shots. And you even put up with my camera stalkerazzi-ness! (I got a few pretty good shots, by the way!).

Thanks again for your willingness to go all out and help to put together a lifetime of memories for Stephanie and Lester. I only hope that I am blessed with a wedding of my own someday, and when I am, I hope that you will be there to help me create the same kind of beautiful memories that you helped to create for my sister.

With sincere appreciation and the fondest of memories,

Sheri (Maid of Honor, better known as “Stephanie’s other half””

Stephanie & Lester, Wedding, Hacienda Heights, CA:
Hi David,

All we can say is WOW!!!!!! The pictures you added to the slide show look amazing! We can’t wait to see what all the pictures from that entire day look like.

We had a wonderful time shooting with you and feel blessed that you were able to share in our special day. We had so many wonderful compliments about you, so we wanted you to know that your way of working with us as well as our guests was definitely appreciated.

Thanks again for an incredible wedding day…. and for capturing so many beautiful memories.

All our best,

Steph and Lester

Lori & David, Wedding, Santa Ana, CA, On Pictage:

“Awesome personality, very easy to get along with, knows his stuff like no other, perfectionist, very responsive, great follow-up, easy-going & relaxed, my wife and I are still friends with him (a year after the wedding!), reasonable rates (not the cheapest in town but well worth every penny!), can’t believe he had sent us a slideshow (with background music, etc.) the day after the wedding!, wedding albums are absolutely wonderful! We highly recommend this fine photographer!”

Callie & Mike, Wedding, Ventura, CA:

“Friendliness and flexibility are a couple of reasons we chose Esquire. The wedding day the schedule did not go as we planned, however all the pictures came out beautiful. Also, the pictures were original and exceeded our expectations. After the wedding it was easy to contact our photographer, which was much appreciated. We definitely recommend Esquire Photography!’

Dana & Rod, Wedding, Long Beach, CA:

“David Esquire of Esquire Photography is absolutely amazing. He is energetic, professional, fun, and has a very creative eye for great shots that create wonderful memories. David did the engagement photo shoot and the wedding photography for our wedding and both my husband and I absolutely adore David.

We consider him part of our family and our family photographer now. He had the creativity that we wanted and he listened to our vision and executed it flawlessly. He comes highly recommended by our family.

He made us comfortable in front of the camera and he did a fantastic job of documenting (in an artistic and photo journalistic way) our entire wedding experience.

You can’t go wrong with David and his team.”

Erin & Kevin, Engagement Shoot, Irvine, CA:


You totally took it to da HNL!!!!  Love them.  How exciting!  I love all the jumping pictures.  So fun!



My-Lien & Rafael, Wedding, Rancho Palos Verdes, CA:

Hi David,

Thank you so much.  We have been meaning to write you sooner.  We did not expect the photos to be posted so quickly as we know that this has been such a busy month for you.  For good reason!  We love love love the photos and the video montage.  Rafi will not admit it, but I swear I caught a tear in his eye after we first viewed the video.

You captured the colours and emotions perfectly and even the musical selection in your video really showcased the mood of us as a couple.  We received so many positive comments about your wonderful open and fun nature during the wedding.  Your calming and easygoing personality really helped us control the emotions during the day, especially since we were late to start.  Did I say we loved the colours and your artistic style?

We are really happy to have had the opportunity to work with you.  From seeing you at the bridal show to the meeting at our home and all our interactions, you have delighted and surprised us with your genuine warmth, professionalism, humour and photography.  We look forward to seeing the rest of the photos and would be happy to recommend you to anyone who might need a photographer.

Thanks again for doing such a great job, David.

My-Lien & Rafael

Felicia & John, Wedding, Costa Mesa, CA:


I couldn’t wait to write you this morning!!

I have to say that you were just beyond the most amazing photographer ever!

You brought my wedding together and the picture below shows it.

I am looking forward to seeing all the pics and will just hold my breath until then.

I will be telling all my friends about you and what you brought to our wedding

Thank you again!


Amber & Tyler, Wedding, Laguna Beach, CA (From Amber’s Mom):

Hi David –  This is Sue Sage, Amber’s mom.  You photographed Amber and Tyler’s wedding on Sunday, 10/11.

I just wanted to tell you how great I thought you were.  Well, not just me. I have received so many comments from guests about how wonderful they thought you were …… and we haven’t even seen the pictures yet.  I just thought you should know that whatever you’re doing, don’t change.  They loved your energy and your passion.  It absolutely looked like you love what you do.  You made taking pictures painless and let me tell you… I hate getting my picture taken.  I’m the worst picture-taker everrrrr.

Anyway, keep up the good work.  Like I mentioned, I’m in Michigan but I will definitely give your name to anyone I know who needs some photos.  We are so looking forward to seeing the pictures.  I’m sure they’re beautiful.

Thank you and take care…..

Sue Sage

Tawnya & Kurt, Wedding, Temecula, CA (From Kurt):


I personally wanted to document that you did a FANTASTIC job at the wedding and I couldn’t be happier.  Your work is gorgeous and I am very proud to show off everything you did for us.  I know you busted your butt all evening and set up candid shots all evening.  My opinion is that if you saw them, you took photos of them.  And the shots were awesome.

Have a great week and see you soon,


Britney & Scott, Wedding, Industry Hills, CA:

“Hi David!

I can’t begin to tell you how amazing the pictures turned out… We love them!!! Thank you so much for all your work that day, it was so much fun just having you and Michelle around! I can not wait to see all the pictures! The album is awesome as well… Thank you again for everything… We couldn’t have been more happy with choosing you guys to photograph the best day of our lives. =)



Michelle & Gabriel, Portrait Photo Shoot, Seal Beach, CA:


“Dear David,

Words cannot describe how incredibly overjoyed we are with your work.

Gabriel and I knew how good you were but never expected us to look so kick ass in our photos.  You are truely talented and awesome at what you do. Loved our session we are ready for many more in the near future.

Thank you for capturing the love we have for each other!!”

Anna & Lee Testimonial On LinkedIn, Location Scouting, Los Olivos, CA:

“Dear David Esquire,

I’ve written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

Details of the Recommendation: “We met David and his wife, Katherine, only a couple weeks ago, yet it seems like we’ve been lifelong friends! He is very personable and produces some AMAZING shots! David has been a pleasure to work with, and he and Katherine actually went scouting for wedding locations with us. It helped that we picked a fantastic location. =) Overall, we couldn’t be happier with our choice of Esquire Photography as our photographer. We can’t wait to see the out-of-this-world shots he will produce at our wedding and reception (no pressure David! HAHA). If you select David to shoot your wedding or any other event, you will NOT be disappointed!”

Service Category: Photographer

Melissa & Geoffrey’s Wedding Day, from Sugah Daddy Swing Band:


What can I say – Wow !!   What you put together for Geoffrey & Melissa’s wedding blew me away & I have to share it with everyone in the band.    You’ve got a real talent capturing the moment & enhancing it to it’s utmost capacity.   You are a gifted “young” man..   (had to throw that in there) and we won’t hesitate to recommend you.

Thanks again David.  Love what you do.

Dan B. team Sugah Daddy”

Kim’s Portraits Shoot – Santa Ana, CA:

“Say the word “Camera” to most people and you’ll see them break into a cold sweat and run for cover; I know, I used to feel the same way. It’s always been hard to accept the fact that I don’t look like your average super model! I mean, my nose is too flat, my tummy is well, a tummy and some parts of my body just don’t have the same indifference to gravity as they did when I was 17. However, that being said, once I found the freedom to open up this whole other side of me I haven’t looked back since.

It is quite rare to be able to find a photographer that you and their ideas can blend, innovate and construct such stunning pictures. So much so that these “pictures” cease to be something flat and dull and transform into brilliant pieces of art.

When I chatted with David about doing this boudoir shoot, I gave him my permission to do the shoot in whatever manner his heart desired.. My trust in his artistic abilities being absolutely intrinsic. We met at 5:30pm Monday night. After five hours of shooting, countless prop and set changes and with my back and neck on fire we wrapped for the evening.

The end result of this fast dash of planning and coordinating, even with the little mishap at the location was more then I could have ever imagined. After a few days of David making me wait impatiently I was rewarded Wednesday morning with a DVD of the final product. Sitting in my living room we went over all 46 final pieces, discussing how the light in this shot was amazing, how the framing in that shot was stunning and how the power cord really made my favorite picture into the piece de resistance.

The comfort level that I felt shooting with David is apparent within the pictures. It is not an easy task to expose yourself (literally and figuratively!) and have the camera pick apart your insecurities. Under these circumstance though, no matter the angle of the shot, the twisted positions I was directed to take, or the fact that I was standing with only the light covering my body I was very much at ease. Actually, let me rephrase that last word. I wasn’t at “ease” I was feeling beautiful, sexy, glamorous and all those things that cameras aren’t supposed to make you feel.

I have but one person to thank for all this, David.”

Kim & Pete Engagement Shoot – Huntington Beach, CA:

“I met David about a year ago at a Ducati Fashion show at Spectrum Ducati. We became friends having many chats about motorcycles and shopping! I recently discovered a long term friend of mine and I were, well “meant to be” and after he proposed to me my mind immediately went to David and having an Engagement Shoot done.

0001We met up on a hazy Saturday morning in downtown Huntington Beach and went to work! After the hour session flew by we were left in the wake of ocean side humidity and beautiful photography!

I think the only argument David and I have left to duke out is that I want him at my wedding being the fantastic friend he is, but he wants to be there working! hahaha!

Either way, I’m sure we’ll work something out as there is no one else I would trust to make my fiance and I look like proper rock stars!”

Laura & Eddie Wedding Day – Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (From Linda; Laura’s Bridesmaid):

“David you are a genius!

I just had to drop you a quick note and tell you so.  You can bet that I will share your name and card with everyone I know that needs a photographer.

As soon as my daughter or son are ready to marry or need a photo shoot, you will be my pick!

I have been around many photographers but you were the TOTAL package.  You presented yourself well and became a friend to the wedding party.  I really loved that.  I’m a people watcher and I watched.    Your work is creating perfection out of the ordinary.  All I can say is wow!!!

I truly wish you great success and thank you for serving my friend in such a professional and friendly manner.

Linda (one of the bridesmaids)”

Erin & Nick Wedding Day – Fullerton, CA (From Erin’s Mother):


All I have to say to you is you are AWESOME. The pictures I have seen so far that you took at the wedding were unbelievable. I have looked at the web-site and saw pictures from weddings that were nice but nothing like the ones you took of Erin and Nick.

Now I know I am being a bit one sided because I am Erin’s mother but you are the best and the nicest photographer I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

THANK YOU so much for being the best photographer ever.

Much Love,

Frieda Livermore

You have made us very happy.”

Leah & Darrell Wedding Day – Diamond Bar, CA (From Leah’s Grandmother):

“Hi David!

This doesn’t involve Pugs, but it does involve pictures, wedding pictures, namely Leah’s. I saw the finished product of Leah and Darrell’s wedding pictures Sunday and I must say that I have never seen such works of art that they are. Each picture was better then the last one.

Such color,  the clouds didn’t look artificial – they were so beautiful, it looked like pictures taken from a movie, only better. There was such remarkable workmanship in each shot and each pose was carefully thought out. All the tiny parts you wouldn’t ordinarily see, was there for everyone to see. They were all crystal clear and the color’s were perfection. Thank you so much for all your hard work and sending the best of the best.


Lou-Ellen Crow (Leah’s Grandma Honey)”

Leah & Darrell Wedding Day – Diamond Bar, California:

Hi David!

Thank you thank you thank you! The pics took awhile to go through but they are all AMAZING! You and Kerry make a great team and captured so many moments. Darrell and I just relived elements of the wedding. it was fun. :) I didn’t know you hung my shoes on the door! that was really beautiful too! Oh, and I love and laughed at the pics of you and Kerry on the bench at the hotel.. :) good times!

Thanks again!

I love it!!  I can’t wait until I can see them all!  Everyone by the way gave me great reviews about you.  They told me you were funny and made them smile enough to get the pictures you wanted.  Thank you sooo much!  I also have a person interested in your services and I gave her your name and number.  Thanks again!! :)


Tami & Scott Wedding Day – Costa Mesa, CA (From Tami’s Sister):


Just wanted to say what a wonderful job you did at Tami & Scott’s wedding.  It was such a beautiful time and you added to the festivities with your great smile and attitude.  The pics are beautiful!  I would love to know if some of the family shots are available for purchase outside of whatever Tami & Scott get.  Our family doesn’t get together often enough as we are spread all over.  I am particularly interested to know if you got a shot of the father of the bride (my dad) and the flower girl skipping down the aisle.  You are absolutely wonderful at your job and I so enjoyed sharing this special occasion with you.  Thanks for everything!  Your a doll!

Pegge (Tami’s sister who didn’t want her pic taken…..not the wild one that was your “assistant”!  :)  God Bless!”

Britney & Scott Engagement Shoot – Laguna Beach, CA:


“David you were so awesome to work with… Scott and I could not be happier with our decision to hire you as our photographer for both our engagement photos and wedding day. I know are wedding photos will turn out just as amazing as our engagement photos did.

Not only can you take a great picture, you are also such a fun person to be around. I will tell everyone I know who is getting married that they would be crazy not to use you! =)

Thank you for everything… and I look forward to seeing you again!


Megan & Jim Wedding Day – Long Beach, CA:

Karissa & Jon Wedding Day – Malibu, CA (From Brianne, Wedding Coordinator):

David- I am so sorry it has taken me so long to have a good solid moment to sit down and really write down a note to you. My new iPhone has been stealing and holding my e-mails hostage so I recently was able to respond to this, but I apologize for the delay. I loved working with you and wouldn’t want to risk being able to do it again due to technical difficulties.

I am so lucky that you were hired on as Karissa and Jon’s wedding photographer. You were amazing to work with and made every situation so easy, especially when at times it may not be. As her day of coordinator/ makeup artist/ and most importantly friend, I want to say that I have never been so excited to recommend another photographer or to work with someone again. I definitely have your card stored safely and will continue to throw your name in the ring as much as possible. Working with people like you makes my job fun and a pleasure. Thank you for making my day and night!

I adore your website. Your talents are so diverse and I think it is awesome that you are a motivational speaker- it really does change lives- seeing you in action I know you would be phenomenal at it. I hope to talk and work with you soon. Again my sincere apologies for the delay. I have nothing but the highest regard and respect for your work!



P.S. Happy Holidays to you and yours

And as Karissa said “Brown Chicken Brown Cow” has become a part of our lives.

I intend to keep in touch with you and not only have you photograph my family again, whether wedding, or portrait, but will refer you to anyone that wants a true professional.

I will be in touch.

Thank you my friend!”

“David,AWESOME!! You are such an amazing photographer!! We had a blast too! The next day we were still all dragging. Who knew that having pictures taken could be so exhausting?? Josh layed down on my family room floor after having a slice of pizza and crashed. I didn’t have the heart to wake him up and send him home so he stayed there all night while the rest of us went to bed!

I thought you might like to see some of the Responses I’ve gotten this morning. As soon as I saw them I forwarded them to a horde of people! A couple people called because they were too excited to take the time to email!

I can’t wait to see more! I’ve been checking your website several times a day since Monday morning because I was hoping you’d give us a sneak peek. Thank you!!

I’ve attached some of the responses I’ve gotten so far. Thought you should see the accolades for your work

Erin & Philip, Wedding Day (From Erin’s Mom) – Los Angeles, CA:

“Hi David,

Just a quick note from the MOB. Erin and Phil are still enjoying Hawaii and I couldn’t let another day go by without letting you know what an awesome experience it was having you photograph their wedding. You seemed to be everywhere at once, yet never intrusive in any way, capturing big moments as well as little ones.

And Katherine… what a saint! She was the picture of calm, collected helpfulness in the midst of all our chaos.

If the few pictures you’ve put on your website are any indication of what’s to come… I CAN’T WAIT!! Your artistic genius is showing again.

And, by the way, LOVE the telephone booth shot!

Thanks to both of you,

Ann Consalvi”

Can I just say that you are the best photographers ever!!! Thank you for helping to make it the most perfect day for Josh and I. We love the pictures on your site, they are simply amazing!

We can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures!

We had a lovely time on our quick wedding getaway to Hearst Castle. Our real honeymoon will be next month when we go to Hawaii for a week. I can feel the warm water now surrounding my toes, we can’t wait to be there.

Thanks again and we can’t wait to catch up with you soon. You are the best!

Warmest Regards,

Joshua and Michelle Gorden

Kirsten & Marc, Palos Verdes, CA – Wedding Day:

Hi David,

I really can’t believe that a month has already gone by since our wedding. We had the best time! Everything turned out absolutely perfect. You took some gorgeous pictures from what we’ve seen so far, so we can’t wait for the rest.

I cannot express how much Marc and I enjoyed working with you. You manage to find such a perfect balance between crazy fun and absolute professionalism. You were so great at keeping it fun while still moving things along when we had a time frame to work with. Many of our guests commented on how great you were, and I couldn’t help but once again feel so lucky that we found you. I really hope we have the opportunity to work with you again soon! So once again, thank you for being such an important part of our wedding and helping to preserve our happiest day!!!

I hope you and your wife are well and things are busy (but not too busy!). Talk to you soon!

Many thanks,

Kirsten (Albert, hahaha)

Jason’s BDay Bash / 281 Motorsports Launch Party, La Mirada, CA (From April):


OMG! We had such a great time Saturday night for Jason’s Old Man Party aka 30th Birthday. Things got off to a slow start with the guest of honor arriving a little late (almost an hour and a half). But once he got there it was an all out BLAST! David you were so wonderful making your way through the crowds of people. You just blended in with everyone stopping to talk to a few (yea I caught you)…lol. I cant wait to see all the shots that you got… the sneak peak photos are great and I can only imagine how the others will turn out! Thank you so much for being a part of another big milestone in our lives… I know that there will many more to come and we would love to have you a part of them!

David is the MAN!! We had him as our photographer at our Wedding and did such an amazing job! Everyone that see’s our photo album is blown away at the quality and detail of his artwork. I cannot wait to see the pictures from my Birthday Party / 281 Motorsports Launch Party! I’m hoping he missed this one embarrassing moment…

Monique & Cesar, Los Angeles, CA – Engagement Shoot (From Monique):


I know Cesar already emailed you, but I just have to say that I absolutley enjoyed my day on Saturday. I looked at the pictures you took, and it brought tears to my eyes. I absolutley LOVE the ones on the website and I’m sure I will love the rest.

Again, THANK YOU so much! I can’t wait to see the rest! Next time we all go to The Edison…Katherine is coming with us! :-)

God Bless!

Soooon 2be Mrs. Ortiz!!!”

Monique and I wanted to thank you soooo much for today. You made this day a fun and adventurous day. But most of all, you made today a very memorable day for us.

You take care and we look forward from hearing from you soon.

“This guy is an artist! His work on my first film “Verbal Intercourse” helped create the look we needed to sell the film!!!!”

Erin & Philip, London UK – Engagement Shoot (From Erin):

“Hi David,

It has been such a crazy week, I’m sorry I didn’t get back to you until now! Thank you so much for giving us a taste of the shoot so quickly after you returned. Honestly, I don’t know how I would have survived. The shoot itself was so surreal, I needed to see the pictures to be sure it actually happened — and that it went as fabulously as it felt! Phil and I were excited enough, but everyone I know was absolutely dying to see how the photos turned out from our London Engagment Session too, and let me tell you we all LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures!!! No one can pick a favorite — the daffodils? Big Ben? the fountain? the London Eye? Each one looks like a post card but without taking away from the people in the picture. :-)

Also, I was so touched by your write-up of the shoot and your beautiful description of me and Phil. I am so flattered — thank you. If we are “Romance, defined.” you are truly the gifted artist for seeing that and capturing it with your photography. I am so grateful to have these beautiful images to remember this time in our lives.

On a more practical note, I couldn’t appreciate the technical importance of having an engagment session until we’d finished it. I’m so glad we got to spend time working together before the big day. The familiarity and ease we established at the engagment shoot will add an invaluable warmth to our wedding photographs. I’ve never seen Phil so enthusiastic outside his comfort zone, and I’ve never felt so comfortable being photographed. And then to see the results! The difference between a typical photographer and an artist — you photographed the way we feel about each other. Your style and structure in every photo is so artfully constructed, but mindful of the subjects. It’s such a confidence booster to know that every gorgeous angle of every moment on our wedding day will be so brilliantly captured in the say way.

Thanks to you and Katherine both for sharing your time with us for such a magical day! If anything could have added to the whole experience, it was sharing the day with such a caring and supportive couple.

Lots of love to you both, and we can’t wait for more of the London Shoot and for the big day!!!


Erin & Philip, London UK – Engagement Shoot (From Philip):

“Hi Dude!

Oh my God!

We’ve emailed the link to everyone and they all thought the pictures are amazing. It has made everyone even more excited for the big day. Thank you so much.

Thank you also for being so AWESOME on the day. We had a blast and Erin loved working with you which has completely relaxed her about the wedding day as she loves you guys and will feel completely comfortable working with you. I loved working with you also. I guess you’re well used to drawing poses out of uncomfortable men like blood from a stone but like Erin I felt completely at ease with you and I had GREAT FUN!!!

You are truly a man of impeccable creativity (Which of course I would appreciate HA HA!)

Later Man”

There is no one word that would express the experience we had yesterday with you and Kerry.

I hope you had as much of a memorable experience taking the pictures as we did creating them! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job!

Kevin even made a comment on the way home that he wished that he had the same passion for his work that you do in yours. He had complete faith in you. That’s a big thing for him!

The engagement shoot was perfect for easing him into the 2000 pictures on the wedding day. I’m sure the pictures will come out great!

Thank you again for such a great time. Talk to you soon!

David, Max & I just got back from our 15 day cruise on the 17th, and our feet have been in constant motion. I thought “they” said things would calm down a bit after the wedding????

Max & I (& the rest of the guests/attendants/etc) adore you! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!! I hope you had fun that day! Heather (& Max) McHenry (<–Awwwwwwwwe!!)

Michelle & Rafael, Santa Barbara, CA – Wedding Day:

“What can I say about Esquire Photography? My wedding was a day I had dreamed about since I was 3. David captured my pink, candlelit, seaside wedding in a way that exceeded all expectations. The pictures from my wedding are amazing. I have become accustomed to receiving compliments on my wedding photos, but the most compelling are from other brides. On more than one occasion I have been told that my pictures look like they belong in a bridal magazine. I owe that to the artistic images captured by Esquire Photography. There was never a harder working photographer. The only complaint I have is that it’s a chore picking out favorites from a seemingly unending amount of flawless pics. Thanks for sharing in our day and being more than just a wedding photographer. It was an absolute honor and privilege to work with Esquire Photography. And most importantly you made me look skinny in a white dress! XOXO! Michelle”

Krissy & David, Los Alamitos, CA – Engagement Shoot:


“David, we both had so much fun with you last night. You made having the picture taking so easy, relaxing, and fun. It was a great experience and I am sure the photos are going to turn out amazing just from the previews you shared. Thanks again and can’t wait to see the finished product!!! Krissy”

Krissy & David, Los Alamitos, CA – Wedding Day:

“David, we sooooooo loved having you as our photographer! David and I both had so much fun. All of our family members and friends were impressed with you especially with the kids. You helped make it a memorable day! Krissy”

Bethany Sunny, Laguna Beach, CA – Exclusive Bridal Cruise & Exclusive Baby Cruise:


“David, all 3 of you did an amazing job! I know I threw many curve balls your way and to see you quickly and graciously adjust was so much fun for me. After a couple of these events under our belt we will have it down as clean as a whistle! I’m actually looking forward to that – LOL!! The pictures were great, all 3 of you did wonderful with the attendees and I think your company was fabulously presented.”
