David is a storyteller. He's always loved stories. When he speaks, writes or photographs, his aim is to find the story and tell it in an intriguing way. A wedding is the ultimate story for two people in love. David knows love when he sees it; he is crazy in love with his wife, Christie, his partner in Lexigraphics, and he loves working with people who are in love.
David's got photography in his DNA. "My great grandfather had a photo studio in Modesto, California in the early 1900s. I loved to rummage through my grandparent's box of photographic prints and I remember finding a metal print that was dated in 1909 from 'Joe Baxley Photographic Studio.' That was fascinating stuff to me and spawned an interest in the craft. At one point in my life, I owned seven cameras, including a 5x7 view camera, and I would hike all over taking pictures of anything and everything.
"Back then, I was asked to do a few weddings, but I had other interests. I was more inclined towards landscape photography. I did a few assignments for local newspapers, mostly sports. I was fortunate to attend the Academy of Art University in San Francisco for awhile, where I received some formal training in portraiture, still life, photojournalism and other categories of photography, but I continued to focus on landscapes and cityscapes.
"In 2001, a friend asked me to photograph her daughter's wedding. I reluctantly agreed but found that I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. In the past, when using large film cameras, we could only get 75 - 100 photographs. But using digital equipment allowed us to take hundreds of images, capturing every moment and thoroughly documenting the day, "photo-journalistically." That made a huge difference to me; I realized that a wedding was the ultimate story and to be asked to photograph something so important, so 'once-in-a-lifetime,' was a great privilege.
"Shortly after that wedding, Christie, and I established our business which we called 'Lexigraphics,' named after our first grandchild, Lexi (we have two children and seven grandchildren). Since then, we have photographed hundreds of weddings, 25-35 each year, mostly in northern California but also at many other destinations in the US."
