A Chat with David Schillen Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We strive to capture weddings as they happen using as little posing as possible. Our technique is described as wedding photojournalism. However, we’re understanding that most people want those few poses to remember the wedding party.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I took a three-month trip down to Medford, Oregon where I was handed a a camera for the first time to just have fun with. I took some incredible images and was thrilled to continue. I then moved back to Seattle in order to go to school and start my business. It’s been quite a ride!
What do you love most about your job?
I love capturing moments when people are unaware that I’m there. Whether deep in conversation or laughing hysterically, it’s times like these that we’re unable to recreate. I also really love the outdoors and photography allows me to travel and experience some incredibly beautiful places.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“David managed to capture the day magnificently, and even better, he captured the joyousness and the love. The big moments are all perfectly represented, but David is clearly a great and intuitive photographer because some of the smaller moments are captured in a beautiful, vivid way.” – Ryan & Guy
