Dave is an amazing photographer. His photos are top notch. And he is very passionate about what he does. My fianc and I booked him and we live across the state. That's how much we loved his work. We traveled to Spokane for an engagement session and Dave was VERY patient and kind while working with my fianc and I who were both more than a bit nervous to get photos taken as we had not really done it before. His Goal was always to put our comfort first and he wanted to make sure we felt like ourselves in the photos. He is amazing at capturing true moments and emotions.

Also he has amazing customer service skills and was willing to work faster for us since we live so far away.

We highly recommend him and are excited for him to travel to our side to shoot our wedding at Port Gamble.

Dave was amazing! He not only worked within our budget and rushed timeline (we literally booked 5 days prior to our wedding!), but also was awesome the day of. He shot in blizzard like conditions in Coeur dAlene (we were hoping on a sunny day) at times lying on the ground just to get the best angle! His personality and enthusiasm went above and beyond - his sense of humor smoothed over the unexpectedly frigid photoshoot! His work speaks for itself; we could not have been more pleased with the memories he captured. We highly recommend Dave, great photographer with a great price, and his love for his work made all the difference.

I was really excited to work with Dave. Such a personable guy who seemed like he did great work. Once we saw the outcome of our engagement photos, we knew something was off. He prides himself on still using film, so he is" forced to capture good pictures"...well that def didn't happen with us. We are not an ugly couple by any means but this pictures would never prove that. He took them at terrible angles! The camera literally added 10lbs, double chins, terrible lighting etc. We paid him about $400 for only 36 film pictures. Only one of them was worthy to call "good". He hands us an unedited cd of pics and a box of unedited printed pics. This is what we payed for? $400 for pictures of my fiance with his eyes closed? Wait-he now wants $60/hour to edit them for us. While he was sitting there with my fiance, it took him 1 hours just to enhance the color and change a really small portion of a shirt. We knew right then that all he really wanted was more money. He didn't care that we didn't like the photos. What mattered to him is that he had some more pics for his portfolio. If only his soon-to-be customers can see what we look like in everyday life and then look at his pics, they'll realize he did a terrible job. We asked him kindly for our money back and he can have everything back he gave us. He told us he couldn't refund us the money because he already spent it on rent and had no money to give us. Ironic, seeing that every time he called us up, he was out to eat with his family. Now we are in the hole $400 with no pictures for announcements, invitations or anything! Oh and in the end, he blamed us for not taking good pictures. Please learn from our mistake and don't make one of your own!

Mr. Ainley did not provide us with the quality of pictures that we were hoping for. We paid him $380.45 for 37 pictures, in which our opinion, were not good. There was only 1 photo I liked and my fiance liked a few more than me. He told us
