David Swidrak


Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, I’ve been shooting weddings and engagements for the past 12 years. Put me in a National Park with two people crazy in love and you’ll watch my creativity run wild! While I love the city life and good coffee shops on every corner, there’s nothing like escaping to the wilderness to reset and refocus. And don’t worry, I always bring good coffee there too!

Photography to me is more than just expensive cameras and cheesy fake smiles. I am in the business of capturing memories that you’ll never get back. It’s my job to document your lives well and thats a responsibility I don’t take lightly. Every couple is unique and I spend the time getting to know each one of you in order to capture your love in its true form. The laughs, the tears, the inside jokes, and everything in between.

When you book me for your wedding you are signing up for more than just amazing photos (you’re welcome), you’re getting a passionate photographer who’s goal is to invest in your lives so that you’re left with a lifetime of gorgeous memories and an unforgettable experience in a forgettable world.

Let’s be friends @swidrakco

Beyond our greatest expectations
When my fiancé and I first met with David, we loved his work, and were sold. Then, since we had an upcoming trip to Portland, OR and David was totally flexible and more than willing to travel for our engagement photos. He made the overall experience fun and comfortable. Would 100% recommend, definitely worth the investment.

Our photos came out perfectly... his style is honestly unmatched. I am from Pittsburgh and I couldn’t find anyone like him in my area. If you do one thing right for your wedding it’s hire David!

Best Traveling Photographer
David is not only my photographer, but now a great friend. I have never felt so comfortable and confident in someone. David’s talent, style, and compassion with photography surpass most photographers I had looked into. It’s hard to find the right person, trust me on that. But, if you chose him, you will not regret it!! He will go above and beyond in capturing the right pose, environment, background, and emotion! I am so thankful and couldn’t be happier with him!
— Anna & Kevin
We love David! He was so genuine and enthusiastic about us and our pictures. We never would have taken a spontaneous trip to Vegas without him and we still get SO MANY positive comments about our photos! 10/10 would recommend.

Do yourself a favor... BOOK DAVID!
It will be THEE BEST decision you’ve made thus far! David’s work is nothing short of amazing! We haven’t had our wedding yet, but I am 100% confident that he will not disappoint! We were anxious about taking engagement pictures, as my fiancé is not a fan of PDA. BUT David made us feel so comfortable and we were really just able to show our love for each other! He really just has this crazy love for what he does and his passion really shows in all of his work! Not to mention, he is an all around awesome guy that really wants to get to know his clients and invests that time to get to know them.

David and his team made my husband and bridal party look like rockstars. I didn’t even know we were that cool? David is so easy to get in touch with and he responds so quickly! His style, the tones, and the candid photos are just breath taking. The best decision I made about my wedding (besides marrying the man of my dreams) was having David as our photographer.
