My name is Douglas Dailey. I have been photographing and videotaping weddings and other events for over 20 years between the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas. Although weddings are a major part of my work, I also do corporate parties, awards banquets, quinceañeras, anniversaries, bar/bat mitzvahs, baptisms, shows and other events. I enjoy employing a variety of mediums from straight film photography to digital imaging using professional computer hardware and software. On this web page, I would like to talk mostly about weddings. When I am at a wedding, I have 3 main objectives: 1) to tell the story of your day, 2) to help everyone look their best in print, and especially 3) to give you the products and services you want in a form that you and your family can use and treasure for many years. With over 1400 weddings as experience, I know how to be unobtrusive yet take all the photographs you need and the ones you want. I hope the samples available on my website will get you curious. I also have a variety of photos, wedding CDs, and videos in my studio which I would be happy to share with you. Please call for an appointment. I want you to know right away that I run my photography business differently than most other photographers. For one thing, I do not use the proof system. We usually come early to where the bride is getting ready and take pictures and video. Then we go to the church and photograph the gentlemen. During the ceremony we work unobtrusively. After the ceremony we can quickly and efficiently get the formal portraits. If there is time before the reception, we might stop at a park for some romantic outdoor scenes. Then it is time to party. I work closely with the coordinator and DJ so that all events go smoothly (arrival, introductions, dining, toasts, first dances, bouquet toss, garter toss, cake cutting, etc.) We can stay with you until the end, and we get lots of candids and family and group shots. At a typical wedding we usually take from 150-350 pictures, depending on the length of the wedding, the number of people, and the types of events.
