David Bustos

professional photographer for Chicago-area weddings


My journey to wedding photography

My father was a photographer, so naturally, I picked up his camera and fell in love. Back then I started with black and white photos. Then in high school, I experimented with the camera on my phone. Photography has been with me my entire life and it only made sense to start a business doing what I love.

Why I want to capture your wedding

Your wedding is part of your love story. And who doesn’t love a great story? Love stories are powerful, and your wedding is a pivotal moment in the arch of your story. It’s beautiful and joyous and I want to make those memories last a lifetime.

I love meeting new couples, hearing how they met, and sharing their excitement. And I love working with families, sharing laughs and smiles. It’s rewarding to help someone celebrate their love, watch them come alive in front of the camera, and have something to remember it by. That’s why I do this. I am dedicated to giving couples an experience they’ll never forget.

David thank you so much for the absolutely incredible wedding photos. All of our bridal party, family, and even guests loved working with you. You are very talented and captured our big day perfectly. You were so fun to work with and we are so glad that our original photographer canceled. Never thought I'd say that! Because it led us to you!

You captured our big day perfectly.

Olivia & Ben

You sent us the pictures when we were on our honeymoon we love them and honestly, thank you!!! It was very special that you are there for us because I told Che that more than a photographer, you are like a friend to us. You spent a lot of time with me and you called me down 1000 times and I was already super tired so I wanna thank you even more for the work that you did because it was super special for me to share so many moments that day with you and make me feel so calm and safe. Thank you! Amazing what you are doing. 

Thank you!

"you are like a friend"

Fer & Che

He was so polite, funny, and helped the day flow on time. The shots that David captured look like Hollywood movie stills. These iconic, timeless, yet just fractions of a moment that are captured in all their grandeur. I never felt like our photographers ever were in the way of the events. While sharing photos with family that couldn’t join, I truly sense that they could feel the joy and happiness of the day through the photos, as though they were there!

iconic & timeless
