After relocating to Hollywood from Chicago in September ‘93 and surviving the Northridge earthquake in the spring of ‘94 and losing our entire studio, we stuck it out to continue our work in music, fashion, glamour and weddings. In 1996, David Esquire received sponsorship from Minolta and that same year went on tour with the National Inline Skate Series (NISS) as the Official Tour Photographer.
Over the past 24 years, David Esquire has been published globally in English, French, German & Spanish, nearly decapitated from snowboarders twice and has been blessed with working with some of the most creative and beautiful people (both on the inside and out) in the world.
Photography has been a family endeavour for the past 2 generations. We believe our success has been due to the commitment to excellence and the superiour products and services that we provide our clients. Since we regard photography as a sacred craft, we utilize only the best equipment, the best software and the best business practices.
We understand that your event is important to you and we strive to make it the very best experience possible. We prefer to meet with you prior to your event and chat with you from time-to-time as well to get a feel for your personality, your ideas and your style to ensure that we’re able to photograph your family, your wedding and your event more through your eyes than ours. And, with nearly 2 1/2 decades of experience in the photography business we help ensure that everything runs smoothly and that there are no unpleasant surprises.
For your wedding, we approach them the same way that we would like to have ours photographed. We know that it is one of the most precious days in your lives and should be treated as such. We are not pushy or demanding, but lovingly and effectively capture the moments of the day while allowing you to enjoy every minute of it.
We understand that your wedding day is exactly that….your day. And, we strive to help make it as memorable and special as possible. From your event day to our state-of-the-art multi-level post-production process, every level of care is taken to ensure that you receive the best photographs.
We find delight in being able to give you a finished product that will allow you to look back on your day with feelings of utter bliss and enjoyment as you relive those moments again and again.
And most importantly, we will have captured the emotion, the mood, the feel, the details - the style of your customized images with such an acute detail that our standards meet the demands of even the most discriminating client.
David Esquire is also a recognized member of Wedding & Portrait Photographers International, Professional Photographers of America, National Association of Photoshop Professionals, Kodak Network of Professional Photographers and a Master Photographer with the International Freelance Photographers Organization.
And in David Esquire’s free time, he is also a motivational speaker at various elementary schools throughout Southern California, giving underprivileged children hope that you can do what you love and achieve your dreams.
