    So much more than just a Photographer!!

    He not only gave us AMAZING photos (Though, it was really hard to wait out the 4 months to get them!) but he was CLUTCH on our wedding day – he went 150% above and beyond. We had some last minute cancellations of water taxi’s to the island, he water-proofed my wedding dress for me AND messaged his friend with a Yacht to see if he could pitch in for us in a pinch. He also helped improve my bouquet, zip up my dress when it was taking my mum too long and just was the most chilled problem solver. 100% Recommend.

    A pleasure to work with!

    I met Dave Abreu almost ten years ago when I assisted my wedding planner friend at a wedding. I absolutely loved Dave as a person and joked that when I marry someday, I would love to work with him even when had not seen his work product.

    Four years ago, he was the photographer at one of my best friends' wedding and I saw his work product after her wedding. I was truly impressed.

    When I got engaged in February 2017, he was one of the first vendors I contacted and so happy that he was available for our December 2017 wedding. My husband and I interviewed a few other photographers just to make sure we were doing our homework. We landed back on Dave. His work is amazing but it's personality and the "click" that made the difference for us.

    Dave Abreu is not only a talented photographer but such an amazing person to
    work with. His energy and calm attitude is the perfect combination on that you need on what can be a hectic wedding day.

    Our same day edit was absolute magic. Each image was pure art and captured the exact emotion of the moment. The joy, the happiness, the emotional tears all were presented in a beautiful way - our guests could not get enough.

    We 100% recommend his services and encourage everyone to meet him and his team.

    Dave Abreu photography is the absolute best! If I could give him 100000 stars I would
    His photos are out of this world beautiful! But it's so much more than that. He makes your day. When your getting married your photographer is with you all day every minutes and shares all of your special moments AND the tough ones lol!! Dave was such a pleasure to be with and Im so happy I choose him! Dave's receptionist Kate is also amazing such a sweet girl and so great to talk to and deal with always! :)

    YES YES YES, I would recommend Dave to anyone and everyone!! Words cannot describe how special Dave is to us. When it came time to select someone to capture our day, Dave was the one and only person that felt more like an instant friend than a vendor. His energy, his commitment, and his vision are unmatched, not to mention his sewing skills (what other photographer steps in to deal with a bridal wardrobe malfunction?)!!

    Dave is truly one in a million - selecting him and his team was the greatest decision made during our entire planning process. We cannot wait to cross paths again, though we know it is inevitable as Dave has now become an honorary family member.

    Timeless and magazine worthy!

    Choosing Dave as our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made. From our initial meeting, we were able to not only see his incredible talent but also got a strong sense we were choosing the right person. Our engagement shoot with Dave was great as it allowed us to get comfortable with him and being in front of the lens, but he was also very helpful in providing us with tips to make us look natural in the shots. Aside from needing to reschedule our shoot a few times due to rain, it was worth the wait as the photos turned out amazing. Our family and friends told us our e-shoot photos were magazine worthy!
    On our wedding day, Dave and his team arrived on time, well prepared and ready to work. We, along with our bridal party, were so impressed with his demeanor, professionalism and ability to just have fun with us and allow us to be comfortable with him. He really went above and beyond what we expected from our photographer (like helping me carry my veil and dress around or using a nice ribbon as a makeshift sash for my bridal robe when I misplaced mine!) and made us feel important and special. We've already received some of our photos and can truly say they are timeless - Dave's talent and value is second to none.

    Dave Abreau was hands down one of my favorite vendors from our wedding. First of all, he provides a 2 hour engagement shoot which was great not only for the photos, but also for the chance to get comfortable with someone taking photos of you and your partner. With Dave, this didn't take long at all! He's funny, helpful, interesting... Before we knew it, we felt like we were on a date and there just happened to be someone taking photos there. That comfort shone through in our photos. They were natural, romantic, sweet, cute... They captured us!

    Our wedding day was even better! Because our wedding planner wasn't very detailed - oriented, Dave had to notice himself that the itinerary didn't allow for enough time to take good 'getting ready' shots. So, on his own accord, he arrived early. From that moment, he was pure magic. Here are some of the things he did for us without us ever asking:
    - cleaned up both rooms so that the photos would look nicer
    - had his assistant get a bow tie for my ring bearer because the one we had didn't quite look right
    - had his assistant go out and and buy me 2 wedding vow books to indulge my silly (last minute) idea that my vows should be in a beautiful book rather than typed on a cue card
    - played drake on his phone because I mentioned that's my 'pump up' music
    - took charge of the pre wedding photos with family (again, because my wedding planner wasn't well organized) and had my family (and me) smiling and laughing while doing it
    - fixed the girls' sarees
    - gave me advice on how to hold my saree and wear my jewellry
    - helped my family determine the best way to capture video and even offered them his lense to borrow
    - made time for a second reveal when I changed from my saree to my dress
    - not to mention, his photos really do capture our personalities and relationship in a sweet, romantic, cute way that is totally us

    I could go on and on and on about how magical Dave made our wedding. He was so fun and thoughtful and he stepped up when needed in his quiet, strong way.

    My family has actually coined the term "Be A Dave" to remind ourselves to be someone who can make a room come to life and feel at ease.

    Without any reservation, I recommend Dave. He's a keeper!
