WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Naomi, 29 - Designer & Mother
"The whole process of being photographed has been a such a fun and pleasurable experience. It all started from the initial consultation through the photoshoot and it continued on throughout the reveal session. Now my photos are a lasting keepsake to be cherished by my family for generations. What a great memory!"
Anita - Mother
"It felt like an adventure and we were all an important part of making that come to life. It is clear that David loves his work and our time doing the photo shoot together was both exciting and pleasurable for all of us."
Simon Sadler - UC Davis Professor
"A portrait session with David is a great experience—low key, fun and professional. He suggested that I get a new portrait for my university faculty homepage and pretty soon he had me feeling like a rock star! That picture is now being used for promotions all over the world."
Darla, 7 - Daughter
"I felt good about it. I felt very happy and excited. He was a professional. My favorite part of the shoot was all of it. I want to do it again. I felt like a star. I felt like Belle from Beauty and the Beast."
Mary Hosler - Newly Wed
"My husband and I loved our photo shoot with David. Not only did he make us feel super comfortable but also came up with great ideas for the photos. The result? Stunning images! We haven't had one friend or family member that doesn't comment on the framed print we keep in the living room. It is just gorgeous! I recommend David to anyone who wants beautiful, breathtaking results and a great time while shooting!":
Olivia, 23 - Photographer
"So creative and so amazing to work with. He always has fresh ideas. David makes his clients feel like a million dollars and look like it too"
Alejandra, 24 - Marketing Consultant
"David's level of commitment is beyond describable, once completing my grad shoot, there was not one picture that I did not fall absolutely in love with, during viewing my jaw completely dropped, his attention to detail and accuracy with his work shows the moment you look at one of his photos, and his editing is unlike anything I have ever seen."
Nida, 24 - UC Davis Graduate
"I can not begin to describe David and his fantastic work. Not only does he have an extreme passion for photography, but he also is passionate about making sure his clients are satisfied 110%!"
Our home studio is based in Davis, California
Why should I book a shoot now?
BECAUSE WE ARE NOT PROMISED TOMORROW AND WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS. EVERY DAY YOU PUT OFF DOING THIS SHOOT FOR YOURSELF YOU RUN THE RISK OF IT NEVER HAPPENING. AND TRUTHFULLY WHY SHOULD YOU WAIT WHEN I PROMISE I CAN MAKE YOU LOOK GORGEOUS JUST AS YOU ARE RIGHT NOW?!
My name is David Suh and I am a portrait photographer. To me, portrait photographers should be held to a higher standard than simply being a camera guy that clicks a button - they are and should be so much more.
They are consultants that listen and plan how you want to be photographed. They are designers that help match your most stunning outfits to the best backgrounds. They are philanthropists that want you to feel nothing but self-love and confidence about yourself. They are coaches that guide you through every step of posing to look your very best. And lastly, they are artists that create and push boundaries to further the definition of beauty with every photo.
I am a portrait photographer and I want to give you the confidence to exist in photos.

CONTACT THE STUDIO
well, hello. I'm
I'm a true fan of transformation through photography and telling one's story through it. There are certain things that are simply better communicated through photos than text or speech such as a woman's beauty, a mother's love for her family, or a business owner's passion. My team and I are here to create portraits that communicate those values.
- David's Mom
