portrait and wedding photography
revealing your inner beauty
with a fashion flair
beautiful elegant portrait photography
Portraits done well show character, personality and reveal your inner beauty.
A portrait is much more than a picture on a wall or a photograph in an album. It is a memory of a day, a moment, an event or just getting together with family or friends.
Capturing art for a lifetime
Beautiful professional portraits of your partner, family, parents, loved ones and even yourself. Revealing your character, personality and inner beauty.
Whether for a special occasion, a family gathering or a gift for a loved one, formal or fun, my promise is to create beautiful portraits as wall art or albums that will take your breath away.
Worried about being in front of a camera? I will put you at ease and guide you at every step of the experience.
Not sure what to wear, how to stand, your appearance, I will guide you through everything at our consultation or during the shoot.
Let me put those concerns to rest!
Then worry no more, I am here to create memories for you and your family to cherish for generations.
♥ Easy to work with
♥ Giving confidence to teens
♥ Quality products to be proud of
♥ Creating memories for your children
♥ Relaxed, no pressure photo shoot
It’s never to late!
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
– Aaron Siskind

it’s not about me
I’m Dave Close – portrait photographer
As a photographer we often overlook photographing our own families. If only I had proper pictures, not just snaps, of my grandparents and my parents.
We are all busy so don’t let that be your experience, take a moment to create with me some beautiful portraits that will be memories forever.
As a husband, father and now grandfather you realise more and more how important family is.
Family photographs become more precious with time. Our children and grandchildren find that featuring in family portraits validates who they are as well as revealing a little about family in times past.
I have been photographing for most of my life initially for personal travel around the world. For the past twenty plus years I have shot professionally – weddings, portraits and commercial.
I have a higher national certificate in photography and have done countless workshops with industry experts from around the world.
But, what is most important is YOU. My challenge is to reveal your personality and create pictures you will love, your challenge is to resist buying them all.
