Hello! Thank you for taking the time to check out my website. I am Dave Jones, an inclusive wedding photographer and filmmaker based in Rochester NY and owner of  Empire West Photo. 

   I am also a husband, dog dad, music photographer and musician. I love the Colorado mountains, classic cars and craft beer.  I am welcoming to all unions and faiths. I want to hear your story! 
     I believe in the importance of documenting the start of your commitment to each other and the opportunity to spend the rest of your lives together. In your photographer search, finding someone you trust, someone who will create images of memories that you and your family will cherish for generations will allow you to focus on love on your wedding day.

Embrace the things that make you happy, hold the one you love and celebrate!


your investment is IMPORTANT

    I love photographing all weddings - from the traditional to the quirky. If you're getting married and you're crazy about each other, I'd love to photograph it.
If you have any questions at all, I can be reached by text or call me at 585-781-4178 or at dave@empirewestphoto.com

        I look forward to hearing from you!
