David C. Stanley

Creator of quality designs and thinker of fresh ideas.

David Stanley – Principal Photographer at DC Stanley Photography. As an artist, I do things in my own unique way and won’t sacrifice quality for any reason. I approach every shoot with a creative vision and that is what gets the images that everyone loves..images that highlight the love and beauty among us. I am pretty chill but hard-working, I am passionate about shooting all the great moments in life and I love being involved in these most intimate and fun times I’m invited to.

I started this business in 2009 and took my wife (everyone calls her V) away from the corporate world to run our studio! She is who you’ll likely talk to for questions, bookings, print orders, and everything email. We look forward to getting to know you, so click on that contact link and shoot us a message!

Hand Made Heirlooms

Built In The U.S.A.

Our clients receive the full customer service experience they deserve. Finding meanings behind these special moments, capturing them creatively and artistically, and delivering beautiful and elegant Heirlooms is what we do! We have simplified the selection process for you, our client, by including ‘The Everything’ in our album price. Our modern yet classic framed c canvas’ come in three colors (black, white and oak). Plus we have all the samples, leathers, cardstocks, etc right here in front of you at the gallery. All of our sessions come with tangible Heirlooms you’ll treasure for generations.

By far the best team I've ever worked with. They truly understood the look I was going for and completely nailed it! I would highly recommend them as a company, you simply just won't find any better team!

It was really fun getting to know the team during the project. They were all helpful in answering my questions and made me feel completely at ease. The design ended up being twice as good as I could have ever envisioned!

Eve CrawfordProduct Designer, That Biz

I'm wondering why I never contacted these guys sooner! Seriously, they all have commendable talent in their respective fields and knocked my concept out of the ballpark. Thanks for an amazing experience!

Jack GrahamCo founder, Coffee Inc

Salient is by far the most astonishing WP theme out there! I literally could not be happier that I chose to buy your theme! Your regular updates and superb attention to detail blows me away every time I visit my new site!
