Contact Dave Shay







I long to create real, bold images for couples on a day made up of millions of tiny moments. I do my best to be an exception to the wedding industry and always strive to put my clients ahead of myself in every way.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am located in Raleigh, NC, and travel to most East Coast Destinations without travel fees.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been shooting for 9 years total and I photograph roughly 50 weddings per year. I have photographed over 200 weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

My style is modern, crisp and clean, with moments presented in real and punchy color.. I enjoy capturing the beauty and the feel of the day without losing any of the details.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

Due to the variety of my locations, I try to do all consults either via Skype, or somewhere local to Raleigh

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

Before working in weddings, I worked for two top tier camera companies as the North American Service Repair Technician. In addition to my past, I have also had the pleasure of documenting everyone from brides and grooms to musicians to The President and Vice President of The United States of America

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I like good tacos and good people.
