Wedding Photography, just like the Bridal Gown, can cost as little, or as much as you wish to invest and like the gown, flowers, favors and chair back linen covers is a luxury, which at it's very best can make your special day stand out from a ll the others, or at worst turn it into just another cookie cutter event.

At David Simm Photography we specialise in making your day extra special, we are deliberately a very low volume studio, that is to say we don't photograph more than one special event in a weekend and, unlike the high volume studios, it will be David Simm in person who turns up to capture your wedding in pictures, not some week end part timer.

David Simm is a highly qualified professional wedding Photographer, a Fellow of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and former member of The Master Photographers Association. In his long and celebrated career he has won, and continues to win, many major awards for creativity, originality and technical quality of his images. During the past quarter of a century his "how to" articles have been published in "The Master Photographer", "The Society Photographer","Professional Image Maker", "Studio Photography & Design", "Professional Photographer" and "The British Journal of Photography"

David Simm was the first photographer in America to Offer GraphiStudio™ Italian Wedding Books and is the only photographer in USA able to offer Italian Designer Albums by Tony Sarlo Albums™ of Salerno. In addition to the fabulous Italian range of products, our spectacular American bound albums by Leather Craftsmen™, United Albums, Leuxo Albums and Zookbinders™ have WOW appeal on every page, achieved through unique designer templates created by David Simm.

Inspite of all these top of the line benefits, fees for wedding coverage by David Simm is remarkably affordable, often costing considerably less than you will spend on flowers for the day, and just a little more than the rented chair covers.

Yes: you are going to spend a little more for something totally spectacular, by a photographer who is dedicated to getting the best possible images of your wedding, than you would expect to pay for "Kentucky Fried Pictures" at a high volume studio, but when you consider that unlike the flowers or the linen rental, the unique collection of awesome images will be yours to keep for a lifetime, you can't help but agree, it's not expensive... it's priceless! and just like your Louis Vuiton purse or your Rolex timepiece you'll be the proud owner of a product that is internationally recognized as a brand leader and bears the signature of it's creator.

For the 2012/2013 wedding seasons, David Simm has taken the unprecedented step of introducing a new recession beater price list. Examples of how you can still afford the best at prices less than 2008 prices. We're all in this recession together and to help you make the biggest day of your life memorable, we're prapared to demonstrate that at David Simm Photography we care and are willing to tighten our belts too.
