I just got all of our wedding photos back, and I can say that I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. David, and his assistant Miranda did a wonderful job making us feel comfortable and relaxed while capturing the most exciting day of our life. He worked quickly and efficiently on our wedding day, making sure that we didn't have to be out in the heat for too long. Throughout the planning process he was great about emailing or calling back as soon as possible. He is a very knowledgeable and experienced photographer. I would highly recommend using David for your wedding photographer! More...

We spent the day yesterday doing our engagement shoot! Not only is David friendly and very welcoming, he automatically assumed our son would be in some of our pictures and even incorporated my mom into them who was helping watch my son. The pictures he showed us just off his camera were amazing and I’m so excited to get them back and have him shoot our wedding in February!! More...

My husband and I hired David over the phone after doing extensive research on him and several other photographers. I could not find a bad review! He had such a down to earth personality and ease to his voice. We were sold and never looked back! Our engagement pictures were part of our package and we really enjoyed meeting David and developing a sense of comfort ahead of time. The day of the wedding David and his crew were top notch! We booked his biggest package that included 2 photographers and 2 videographers for the day. They were prompt on arrival and quickly took care of those detail shots and final touches of getting ready. Our wedding party and family felt so comfortable and couldn't believe how laid back yet professional the guys were. I never imagined I'd laugh so much with my photographers! We've received a large sneak peek of about 100 photos and can't wait to see the rest along with the videos! I look forward to working with David or any of his team in the future as we grow our family! Thank you David, Austin, Jacob and Taylor for making our wedding day one we can look back at and be right in the moment all over again! More...

If you are lucky enough to have found David A Selby, hire him as a photographer. He photographed our wedding in September and he was perfect. I started looking for a photographer late, and I didn't really know what I wanted, I only knew my budget. David fit the budget and I really loved his pictures. He was awesome in reaching out and asking the right questions leading up to the wedding. The day of the wedding, everything was chaos (our reception venue was inaccessible because of flood waters) and David walked right into that chaos in a place he had never been with people he had never met and didn't flinch. He was the perfect amount of personable (he's just a super nice guy), and dedication. His relaxed manner and flexibility will make the photo part of your day a breeze (even if you are tense as hell). I COULD NOT BE happier with the pictures he took. I mean, just gorgeous pictures, breathtaking. I've got so many compliments on the pictures, and everyone at the wedding loved David. He's awesome and so are his pictures! More...

David was absolutely amazing!! He was very personable and knowledgeable about the wedding process which was so helpful because we are not. We met him for a get to know you meeting before the big day and he was easy going and great to talk to. On the day, he was on time. He was patient and kind and had a great arsenal of photos to take. He helped keep us on track and was instrumental in keeping me from melting down on several occasions. The photo we’ve already seen was phenomenal and I can’t wait to see more of his work! He was such a joy to work with and I truly feel like we made a friend through this whole experience. If you want the total package look no further! Selby films will make your day perfect. More...

I had a horrible experience with a previous videographer and made me very weary about hiring a new one. But from the first meeting to the day of the wedding Selby was extremely professional and easy to talk to and explain what we wanted. He provided exactly what me and my wife wanted and we were extremely satisfied with how the video came out. He is worth every penny. More...

My husband and I hired David to be the videographer for our wedding. From shooting the 'thank you' video to the final 'highlight' reel of our wedding day, David FAR exceeded our expectations. David puts an incredible amount of time and energy in his work and is SO much fun to work with! David makes it very easy to relax and feel comfortable in front of the camera. He is full of unique ideas and captured exactly what we had in mind. David was very responsive, flexible and exemplary in communicating the progress of his editing and when we could expect the final products. I would HIGHLY recommend Selby Films for anyone looking for an exceptional photographer or videographer! More...

David was AMAZING. He was comfortable with everybody and really adapted to our crowd -- he was laid back as we wanted but was everywhere and captured so many moments throughout our celebration. I was excited to have so many pictures of so many of our guests that we didn't get to spend a ton of time with. We had a LOT of pictures and they are all crisp, clear and bright, which is exactly what I wanted. David, you were an absolute joy to work with and we definitely made the right decision! Thank you thank you thank you! More...

From the beginning of meeting David he was extremely accommodating, easy to work with, not to mention talented! He puts his clients first which is proved by his simple ask of "where's convenient for you to meet up? " From our initial meeting, David was very professional and both my fiance and I felt extremely comfortable around him. His welcoming demeanor makes for a comfortable photo shoot for both engagement photos and our wedding photos! He has a way of being stealthy and silent to capture real moments that you had no clue he was able to even get, along with speaking up and making people comfortable when necessary such as around kids or people who may be shy when taking photos. I love how David truly loves what he does, and feels like a part of your family or friend on your day- all of our friends and family loved him and his crew of videographers/photographers. We were blown away by our pictures when we got them! It was rainy on our wedding day during our time to take pictures so David thought of some creative alternatives and got some other wonderful photos as a back up! For them being a backup, we couldn't have asked for anything better when we got our photos back! We will certainly use David again for family photos and any other photos in the future! More...

David was PERFECT! He did such a beautiful job photographing my wedding, it was exactly what I wanted. And his pictures are AMAZING! ! He took some great photos that played with light and shadow, he set up some shots that turned out absolutely breathtaking, AND he caught some hilarious moments during the reception that weren't staged - I don't know how he did it, but he perfectly captured the mood and happiness at our wedding in his photos. I couldn't be happier with the way everything turned out and as an added bonus: David is one of the genuinely NICEST people I have ever met, my entire family loved him!! HIRE HIM for any special occasion you have, you will not be disappointed!!! I can't say enough good things about him! More...

Q&As

There's really no secret. It's just a mindset you develop through experience and relationships. I've got the equipment. I've got the experience. My goal is to be real and personal with you so we can have a casual and comfortable space to hang out and make memories.

The goal is to get to know one another. So I'll delve right in to learning about you. I'll naturally tell you about me as we go because I want the comfort of you knowing who I am, as well! haha

I love capturing the human element of whatever moment or event I'm shooting. Whether that's in video or photo, I like getting caught up in the significance of a wedding day, or even a family photo session. There's so much reward in knowing I just captured a great memory and stored it in this vessel we call a "photo" or a "video" where it can be enjoyed for allllll the rest of time. I also love editing. While I don't like to over-edit a photo, I think there's a certain edge I give every shot which will really make it pop... or with video, I love manipulating the dynamic and the feel of video through song choice and timing my cuts. I like finding ways to move people emotionally in a positive way when they see the final product.

I always had the camera in my hands growing up. I come from a big family and it was very common for us to watch back home videos, or memories from our younger years. Sometimes we'd video our trip to the Christmas tree farm and then watch it back THAT night! So I learned trial and error at a young age. I could shoot something in a unique way, or stage something in the heat of the moment, and then surprise everyone later when we watched it back. I learned to edit video when I was in high school, which took my videos to a whole new level. I could add music, speed a shot up, or slow it down... nothing was more fun to me than entertaining people through my work. So that's where it took off... once I finished college, I kind of knew what I wanted to do. I started offering my embellished home videos to those who were getting married and it evolved into what my business is today.

I have vast experience, education and understanding in my craft, competitive pricing, confidence to carry out challenging projects, and a genuine care for my clients, their needs, their satisfaction, and a desire to build a lasting relationship so we can work together again in the future.
