Hi, we're Dave & Amanda

Instead of a traditional “about us” type of page (snore), we thought it would be fun to interview each other and share our candid responses.

What has made David Orr Photography gain popularity over the years?

We continue to evolve, elevate, and redefine our imagery style, and grow as artists. And we strive to capture fresh photo ideas with eager clients as fans and participants. Many people hire us because they too have a passion for creative photography, and know they will experience something special when they work with us. We're always interested in new ideas, different locations around the state, and doing something unusual and unique!

Wait, I thought this was a photography website? What does all this have to do with photography, anyway?

Well, did we mention we also love and are inspired by music?

Dave, what is your first photographic memory?

I took a summer photography class at the Mesa Arts Center (the old building near the Convention Center) with Wendell Waters. We made black and white prints in a cramped darkroom. I remember a portrait of my friend Dan with quarters over his eyes (can’t remember who took the photo, though!), and a portrait of me in my favorite ‘90s bull terrier surf dog t-shirt (the kind with the neon puffy paint) and my horrible glasses (which my mom said made me look like a bumble bee).

Amanda, what do you like to do when you're not shooting photographs?

I really like traveling, cooking, and spending time with my friends and family. When it comes to traveling I like exploring different places in Arizona--I have lived here all my life and I really love all the wonderful things the state has to offer. It always seems I discover something new when we travel in and out of state.

Cooking is one of my most favorite hobbies. I get the same satisfaction of cooking something unique and seeing people's reactions to something new I've created and them being extremely happy--I correlate this a lot to photography and graphic design.

I really cherish spending good quality time with friends and family, and especially being a mom. It's so important to me to spend quality time with all whom I love.

In a nutshell, what do you want people to know about you?

We are a married team dedicated to our clients' photographic and artistic needs. Over the past 17 years, our passion for photography has taken many forms. We've been introduced to people from all walks of life, each with their own unique need and vision. This in turn has afforded us the opportunity to learn and grow as photographers in all disciplines of photography: weddings, portraits, jewelry, architecture--you name it! Each niche brings it own challenges and in turn gives us new skills to excel in other areas of photography. We're always looking for the next photographic challenge—maybe you’ll be the one to bring it! 

Thanks for visiting!
