New Mexico Wedding Photographer

David Jesse Photo

Let's go on an Adventure and I'll tell the story!

Hi I’m David!

I am a husband, a father and adventure seeker! I stumbled upon a passion for photography a couple years ago while working for a non-profit and traveling a ton. I never would have guessed it would lead me to the wedding industry, but I’m so incredibly grateful it did. Because of it, I have the amazing opportunity to capture beautiful intimate interactions as well as pure belly aching joy in a form that helps us all remember those moments for a lifetime! I live and primarily shoot in the beautiful state of New Mexico but shoot weddings and elopements all over!

I love to travel, try new foods, meet great people and discover hidden gems of nature. For me I want life to be an adventure, something exciting that makes my skin tingle! If I’m not shooting or hanging out with the fam, you can find me, riding a single track, hiking a peak or even looking for white water if the seasons right! Whatever your adventure is, do it with the ones you love and let me catch some of it in photo so we can remember it forever!



Let’s go on an adventure! I’ll take 20% off destination weddings/elopements if you mention RMB!


Love Notes

“David was phenomenal! From our very first correspondence, he FaceTimed me to make it more personal. And was very professional and enthusiastic about the Hindu wedding we had. He even brought a second shooter day of our wedding and made such a beautiful video that made us feel like we were reliving our wedding day all over again. He even put my husband at such ease since he isn’t a fan of photos! And he interacted kindly with our guests. They all loved him. I love our wedding photos so much!!! You captured all the emotion and moments so candidly and artistically. You did not disappoint. You are wonderful David!”

“David is not only a wildly talented photographer (his stunning photos will show you that), but he takes great care in ensuring that your story is beautifully told through photos, and is so much fun to work with. My husband and I are incredibly grateful to have found a photographer whose style perfectly complimented our own earthy style. He took wonderful care of us leading up to, during, and after our big day.”

“We immediately loved David’s work upon viewing his online galleries. Our wedding was set to be outdoors, so we were searching for a photographer whose photos have a balance between framing/highlighting the subjects/moment while respecting the integrity of the natural surrounding beauty. We didn’t want our skin tones to be overexposed and washed out, or the natural backgrounds to get lost. David’s photos have that balance.”

“David responded to our inquiry the same day we reached out. We had a video chat with him, and were so excited to learn that the person behind the lens is communicative, straight-forward, friendly and fun, and truly takes to heart the role he plays in capturing such a big life event. After ‘meeting’ David, we were not only happy and relieved to have booked the photographer we both wanted, but had a comforting feeling that we were in good hands.”

“Our engagement shoot way more fun than we expected it to be. It was our first time doing a photo shoot together so we were a bit nervous, but David did a great job breaking the ice and making us feel comfortable. We were blown away by photos and even more excited for the wedding day!”

“On our wedding day, David was there for every moment we wanted captured from beginning to end. He even gave some great wedding day advice and walked us through cutting our cake! He cares that you have the best day ever!”

“Our wedding photos are incredible! David worked with us to ensure everything was to our liking and the results were exactly what we wanted. We’ve received so much love and compliments on our photos!”

“Who you choose to photograph your wedding is going to be one of the most important wedding decisions you make. We couldn’t be happier that we chose David Jesse Photo.”
– Michelle and Cameron

“David brings fun energy to the photoshoots and his pictures are amazing! He took our engagement pictures at the top of the Sandias and wedding pictures in California. He is personable, easy-going, and down for an adventure. My husband and I LOVE how the pictures turned out and we’re thankful to David for his incredible talent in capturing these special moments for us. We’ve been recommending him to all our family/friends!”
– Kimberly Ruiz
