"It has been such a pleasure working with you and our photos are out-of-this-world - we can't stop talking about them or showing them to friends and family."

"I just received the photos from Ridley's session, and I can't tell you how much I LOVE them. I smile every time I look at them because they really capture all the best aspects of his personality."

"Plus, the overall experience was just wonderful - from the friendly support staff to the fun photo session to the DVD screening to the beautiful photos to the little business cards with Ridley's picture! I was simply delighted from beginning to end. I am going to recommend Sutton Studios to all my friends!"

"I was thrilled with the photos... you captured their personalities so well."

You have to have the patience of a saint to work with animals (and children). David is a modern day St. Francis of Assisi. He quickly earns the trust of pets and their people. If you are looking for somebody to capture the unique bond between people and their pets (or kids who behave like pets), look no further than David.

"David has a very easy and creative style - in less than an hour he created a treasure!"

Dear David,

Thanks for the great portrait session today. My tail is still wagging, but I feel a nap coming on. My family is excited to see my picture over the fireplace. Thanks for being so good with me.


"I can't thank you enough for these phenomenal pictures of Zorro... each and every person in our office (40+) has found his/her way to my desk to 'see the great dog pictures'."

"Thanks for a great sitting - we had such fun and the proofs are fantastic!"

David is an excellent photographer and person. Actually, he is one of the best photographers I know. I am very lucky to work with David on a professional and personal basis and look forward to seeing him each year for our family portrait.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. David was very professional and patient with my not-so-patient pup. The pictures turned out great. Everyone who sees them loves them."

"The session was great, as was the finished product. I'd highly recommend a session as a gift! And you survived our cats - an accomplishment even for the biggest animal lover!"

"Thank you for capturing our happiness with such giftedness. It was such a pleasant experience, and we will cherish these photos for the rest of our lives."

David is a unique combination of artistry and common sense; his work is of the highest professionalism, and demonstrates a broad array of skills. We hired him as a photographer, but we've also seen his work as a writer, which is equally strong. Add to the package a charming personality, and what is not to like?

"I have finally come to the conclusion that there are no words to tell you how much this has meant to me, my husband and my son. They are beautiful and heart rending beyond your imagination. Your talent is only exceeded by your generosity in sharing something so special."

"I just wanted you to know how pleased I am with the photographs you did of our two sons, Chris and Michael, our golden retriever, Casey, and our cat, Toby. My husband and I are still in awe that you were able to capture all of their personalities, considering Casey's wild behavior and Toby's disinterest the day you photographed them. You are truly an artist with extraordinary talent. Thank you again for capturing the images we will always cherish."

"You are incredible! When I showed my exhibition prints, people were either rendered speechless or moved to tears by the beauty of your photos."

You really cannot put a value on what Dave has provided me and my family. The memories that he has memorialised will last through our lifetimes and beyond. Dave has an amazing ability to not only capture a moment, but a personality and a relationship. We are very grateful for his artistry.

"Our dog is gorgeous- so full of life (and so hard to photograph - a black dog with black eyes!) - you did a great job."

"David is gifted in his work and magically captures loved ones in a touching fashion. These memories will stand any test of time."

"There is a picture of my 15-year-old baby with me that describes our bond in a way words never will. The picture is so powerful. This is David's specialty and he is a master at his craft!"

"Thank you so very much for the beautiful picture of Abby. You truly captured her beauty.
