Outstanding Calgary Photographer Reviews

Photographer reviews tell the story of the experience clients have had with us. We are proud to have a 5 star rating based on all our reviews!!

We hired David and his team for our August 2019 wedding. From the very beginning David was incredibly transparent, easy to communicate with and very professional – it was clear that David has a passion for photography, specifically wedding photography. David’s prices are very reasonable for the service provided and the coverage he was able to achieve during our wedding day. David was easy to work with and helped us pick a location for our engagement photos based on the style of photos we wanted. Leading up to our wedding day, David assisted us with scheduling to allow for ample time for photography between our ceremony and reception and gave us some tips that we would not have otherwise thought of.

I would definitely recommend having a second shooter as you are able to get images from different perspectives at the same time. David likes to think outside of the box when shooting and lets you in on how he is going to post-process the photos to create stunning images. During our wedding, David and Erin Young (second shooter) were professional, polite, and friendly. David had a sneak peek album to us in less than a week and our fully edited wedding album back in less than a month. We are blown away by the photos and are incredibly thankful that we chose Patton Photography to be a part of our big day!

David Patton, (and Nathalie) are masters of their craft. We first met with David long before the wedding at a coffee shop. From that day on we knew that we had the perfect person for the job. David came prepared with many examples of all the shots that he would get, noting all of the equipment that he would have.

He is way more than prepared. He had tonnes of memory cards and batteries with many different lenses that he quickly changed as required. Now any great photographer that knows their stuff can do this, but it is David’s ability to use lights that takes him to the next level. He can quickly set up multiple flashes and move them without you even noticing. This results in unique photos that feel magical and surreal with us focused.

During our ceremony, if he didn’t have all of the photos I wouldn’t have even known he was there. After when we went for after ceremony photos, it was quick and easy because when we had our engagement photo session with David, where we got a session on tips for posing and making the most of our photos. Speaking of this session, it was amazing. We had an amazing time at a place that was suggested by him, because we really weren’t sure where to go!

Everything went exactly to plan and our photos look amazing.

David also always has someone that he shoots with, so we were able to have one person with the men and one with the woman so we could document the whole day. This was probably the best bit, because not everything at a wedding can go smoothly, but Patton Photography managed it all beautifully.

One final word, if you need any advice on other wedding stuff, David will know. We heard about our liquor guy from David, who was also amazing.

Thank you so much David and Nathalie!!!

Sarah & Tanner

Trying to find a photographer that can capture your special day can be so stressful! It took us hours of combing the web. The quality, quantity, cost, and timing are all factors in choosing, as you know! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with Patton photography, the process that Dave has developed from the first contact till the end of our special day is fantastic and no stress at all.

We were married in Banff in March and Dave scouted out all the locations ahead of time as we were limited for time(only had an hour before nightfall) Dave had a great route mapped out and it went so smoothly. We couldn’t be happier and recommend to everyone we know.

Amy & Chad

We had our wedding done by David and we were extremely pleased and have recommended him to our friends and family he was very professional and made my husband and I feel very comfortable as well as he worked with our budget we will definitely be using him in the near future again

Jennifer & Justin

Our experience with Patton Photography was amazing! Our engagement shoot was done in Kananaskis in the Fall of 2014, and David traveled with us to our wedding in Mexico in April 2015. We were so happy with the results of the photos – great photos, a large amount of photos with lots of choices (and favourites!), quick turnaround and amazing service overall.

Becki & Luke

Florian and David certainly added to our great day. They listened to our needs and wants and were able to accommodate at every step. Neither my husband or I excel in front of the camera but we were so comfortable the whole day that we really enjoyed being photographed for once (and it showed it our photos). The only trouble was once we got our pictures there were too many good ones to choose from!!!! I still can’t narrow it down to which ones to blow up, it may be all of them 

Marina & Nathan

David was fantastic, he was accommodating and great to have around during the stress and excitement of our wedding day. I had no worries of how our photographs would turn out as he instilled such trust and professionalism in his work. Definitely worth it! Great quality of photographs and very personable people!!

Stephanie & Bud

Katie & Chad

Highly recommend Patton Photography! The level of service you get is amazing. Also, the photos are memories you will cherish forever! Awesome photographers!

Neelam & Manraj

David Patton is unbelievable. He has done our engagement photos, wedding photos and my baton clubs yearly & promotional photos. Patton Photography is amazing and I highly suggest contacting them for ANY of your photography needs.

We cannot rave enough about David and his team at Patton Photography. We had a wonderful wedding in Canmore however it was fairly cold temps. We were so impressed that it was us getting cold, not our photographers – they did whatever it took for the perfect photo! We have recommended Patton Photography to others and will continue to be a faithful client!

Carrie & Jordy

We have yet to do the wedding photos as the date is coming up, but we used him for our engagement photos last October and they were stunning! He edited quickly and we got all the photos within a reasonable amount of time. I am excited to work with David on September 26th!

Kara & Brad

We just did our engagement photos a few weeks ago with Dave. He was absolutely amazing our pictures were incredible. Can not wait for them to do our wedding this summer. Anyone looking for a photographer should definitely book him!

Chelsea & David

Great photos, but that’s just the start. High quality service. Very friendly. Definitely put the clients needs first. Got pictures in a very timely matter and the price was awesome. We will be back.


Had a great experience! They shot my wedding, and we couldn’t be happier with their personable approach and excellent photos. Would recommend them anytime!


Absolutely AMAZING family photos!!! Got our young daughter (just past a year) to look at the camera for the photos. Our photos are up in our house and get compliments every time anyone sees them!

Amazing colors and perspectives captured at a fantastic price.

Kayleigh & Jared

David did Jordan and my engagement photos in Troll Falls last September and we couldn’t be happier. David is not only super kind but has amazing insight and talent. He was super easy to communicate with and made the entire experience fun. Can’t wait to have him do our wedding pictures in two weeks. Would definitely recommend : )

Lyndsey & Jordan

David was the photographer for my friend’s wedding and it was amazing watching him work. He favours quality over quantity, and will wait for the perfect wind and sky to take his picture. I also love that he had a second photographer for the day of the wedding; they captured so much more this way! I would highly recommend David. He’s an extremely talented photographer, and such a nice guy!
