A rustic Birmingham, Alabama wedding, an elegant Charleston, South Carolina wedding, a whimsical Pacific Northwest wedding, or something in between... I've photographed weddings of all shapes and sizes since 2010, and I want to do the same for you!
The weddings I love are the ones where the couple wants to enjoy the day, be laid back, and let me handle documenting all the moments, big and small.
Your wedding day is about the two of you, and that is my priority when I photograph a celebration. My focus will be getting as many photos of the two of you as possible. I love doing first looks and I love doing mini-shoots with couples throughout the wedding day or weekend!
Make your own traditions and don’t worry about having to do what others have done in the past. Forge your own path and make your own memories.
Whether you and your special someone are wanting to do an adventurous elopement in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, a National Park celebration in Wyoming or Montana, an escapade to Palm Springs or Southern California, an intimate gathering in New England, a destination getaway to the Florida Keys, or anywhere else in the United States, I’d love to document all the special moments!
WHAT DO WE GET WHEN CHOOSING DSMITHIMAGES?
All celebrations receive a full day's coverage. You give me a start time, and I'm there until the end. I don't believe in putting anyone on a time limit and not being able to tell the full story of their special day.
I also make sure you get all photos in high-resolution/print quality along with social media quality. On top of that, you get both the color + black and white copies.
You are also guaranteed to get your photos back and ready within a matter of days, not weeks or months. I start work on your photos as soon as I get home from your celebration, so you don't have to wait to relive all the wonderful moments of your big day.
TRAVEL INFO + AVAILABILITY
Birmingham, Alabama is home, but I'll go ANYWHERE in the United States to photograph your celebration. I'll also waive travel fees so you don't have to worry about distances keeping you from the photos you deserve.
I've photographed couples in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, and I'm always looking to add more to the list!

We hired David to do an engagement shoot in Alabama and were so pleased that we booked him to photograph our out-of-state wedding in Wisconsin. His communication is EXCEPTIONAL and he was professional and fun to work with. The value of his photography, we feel, is much more than he charges
Hailey + Ethan
David went quite literally out of his way to make our day even more special. From helping us coordinate things at the wedding to providing excellent photos. He was very experienced and doubled as a wedding coordinator at times. I definitely recommend David to anyone that is an adventurous couple with a destination location as he not only was happy to be at the wedding but without question traveled with us to the trash the dress location. This location was over an hour away and on mountain back roads. I could say more but you should put him to the test yourself! Thank you, David.
Jess + Darren
David is an amazing photographer. He walked us through every bit of how pictures would be taken. He got our opinion about what we wanted and accommodated all of it. The pictures turned out to be stunning. He was patient and friendly. His prices were so reasonable I would say he doesn’t charge enough. We highly recommend him.
Joslin + Dustin
I was so happy working with David. His photography is great, he's very organized and helpful and he's friendly and comfortable with people. I am so thrilled we got to work with him! I love my photos and the experience made for a perfect memory we will cherish forever!
Logan + Kurt
David is an outstanding photographer! Not only was he able to capture every special moment of our wedding, but he also played a huge role in the moments leading up to our ceremony as well. David went above and beyond by being punctual and even tackling coordinating duties that he was not expected to do which made everyone feel comfortable. He got our photos back to us quickly eliminating the typical anticipation that most newlyweds experience. Not only was he able to capture our special day through his camera lens, but he also took the time to put our photos into words in his descriptive blog post. He was able to capture our story not just by photos taken through his camera lens. David was truly one of a kind and we are so thankful for choosing such a talented photographer!
Melissa + Curt
Very friendly and helpful with staying on task to get all photos completed we had requested... Also very helpful going above and beyond with me (the bride). I highly recommend David !!
Savannah + Logan
David is so amazing to work with!! He did our engagement pictures and wedding pictures and I could not be happier. If you are considering him for your pictures, do it!!!!
Brittany + Shane
David was amazing! He was great at keeping in touch, coordinating, working with the hectic environment, and just going with the flow as needed. I definitely recommend him as a photographer! Thank you so much for being part of our special day!
Abby + Luke
David Smith is without a doubt, a wonderful person and photographer. He was easy to work with and very quick to respond when I had questions. He’s a hard worker and is very invested in his work and meeting the wants and needs of clients.
Liz + Alan
David was beyond flexible with our COVID wedding. He was great at communicating, took amazing pictures, and had them all back to us just a few days later. I cannot recommend him enough!
Marie + Hendrik
David is a wonderful person and an amazing photographer! We hired David for our January 2021 wedding in NC. Throughout our entire project with David, he was kind, patient, and professional. He gave me and my husband his full attention for the day before and the day of our celebration. All of the photos from our special weekend are fantastic! I could not have asked for a better photographer! I already want to work with him again.
Meg + Harrison
If you’re looking for a super sweet, super approachable, and super professional photographer who will make you feel comfortable on your wedding day – David is amazing! He was super flexible throughout the day and took on many jobs and roles that were needed. Didn’t have a ride to the first look? David drove me himself. Needed someone to step in and direct people? David’s on it. His photos were super genuine and not posed, which is exactly what we were looking for. He still got the posed shots that we wanted, but he values authentic moments and capturing real emotion. We could not be happier with the photos he took for us!
Erika + Nick
David was an amazing photographer, very professional, and easy to work with. He was patient and kind but also commanded the room when he needed to. He was very good at getting all the photos I wanted and then some additional photos I didn't even know I wanted. All the photos were beautiful and were edited and back to me, ready to use very quickly about 2 days after the ceremony. He gave me and my husband his full attention throughout the entire celebration. He learned all my family's names and got to know them individually. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer and a new friend. He truly became part of the family.
Aleks + Alex
David did such an amazing job as my photographer at my 10/3/20 wedding. I found him through Facebook because my original photographer canceled, but this was a blessing in disguise. David was so wonderful, he got all the shots that I had asked him to, he is so professional, and the one thing I really like the most was that he took charge of the situation and made sure everything was organized when we were taking pictures with the wedding attendees. It gets so chaotic when everyone is trying to take pictures but David knew how to control the situation. I would 100% recommend David. Thank you for such a great experience.
Johnna + Josh
David was there from the start of the day to the end of the day!! He made sure to catch every moment! He was super helpful about everything and valued any input! If I needed him for anything he was there! Also, for the price, it was amazing!!!! Most photographers I found were only for a few hours, with him, I could relax and make sure I wasn't rushing the whole day! I couldn't recommend him enough!!! The photos were gorgeous, and he even would take pictures with my families' phones for them which meant so much to them!
Emily + Michael
David is an absolute pleasure to work with and a wonderful photographer. He was so kind as we navigated our wedding planning around the uncertainties of Covid. I was so impressed by his promptness, professionalism, communication, and flexibility. Once we finally got to the big day his work was excellent - and we had so much fun on our adventure around Tannehill for the pre-ceremony photos! I could not believe how quickly the photos were available as well. David is amazing to work with all around, I highly recommend him!
Jessica + Hunter
Working with David was amazing! From the first time I reached out to him, he was always professional, kind, and incredibly prompt in his responses. He was amazing to work with and provided tons of guidance throughout the wedding planning process and on the big day! And the photos are just wonderful- I have looked at them every day since I got them and a friend told me they were some of the best wedding photos she has ever seen. I have over 300 pictures that I absolutely adore! I cannot recommend David enough- he is wonderful to work with and his work on our wedding is absolutely top-notch. You will be so pleased!!
Stephanie + Brian
David was an incredibly professional, punctual, and friendly photographer. I am a control freak and he made it so easy to hand him the reigns. He responded to every message within an hour (usually less) and he made meeting up with him the first time so easy. I was completely stress-free and he got all the best shots. He collaborated with our DJ to herd the wedding party and guests to where they needed to be and everything went perfectly! We could not have asked for a better outcome and would choose David again 1000 times over! Thank you so much, David, for amazing pictures to cherish forever!!!
