Meet the photographer

David Bacher

David was born in the U.S. to an American mother and an Austrian father. He holds a 4 year bachelors degree from the University of Virginia as well as a one year specialization certificate in photography from the Danish School of Journalism. David has lived in the U.S., Vienna, Austria and since 2004 near Paris. In addition to his wedding and couple photography, David also works for numerous international magazines. His award winning images have been published in National Geographic France, The New York Times, and Die Zeit Germany among others. In his spare time David enjoys pursuing street photography. He’s currently working on a personal project comparing street life in Paris and New York City.

Prices & options

As I offer an array of various packages for both weddings and Paris photo sessions I kindly ask that you send me an email or give me a call so that I have an idea of exactly what you’re looking for. Options such as wedding books and albums can be discussed in further detail as well. Prior to weddings I always try to meet couples over a coffee in Paris. For those who live far away, a simple Skype meeting usually works great.

How I work

My style of photography is very much documentary inspired which means I work in a discreet, non-intrusive manner. I try to simply let the wedding day unfold and capture important moments as I see them. Over the years I have learned that some couple and group portraits are also important and that is why I like to set aside about 30 minutes (not more) during a wedding to get these shots.

Re-touched photos delivered

I re-touch every photo for things like color nuances, contrast, image composition, dust etc. I always provide the integrality of the photos in high resolution on a DVD with a mix of color, black and white and sepia (vintage). Then you may make large prints (up to 1 meter wide) in a lab near where you live or simply share the photos with family and friends.

I would like to thank my good friend Jan Tonellato, a professional graphic designer based in Paris for creating this site.
