"My photography style is primarily based on minimalist composition, combined with the sensitivity to understand my clients and blend it with an attractive aesthetic."

Griso's approach to photography is a captivating blend of minimalism and emotional resonance. With a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of his clients, he crafts images that are at once visually striking and profoundly personal. "I love fashion and its aesthetic gaze; things can be relativized, giving importance to the fluidity of naturalness and the drama in the most absurd things. It's a way to maintain the viewer's attraction. I love weddings for that very reason; we have a cocktail shaker with a lot of information, and we have to detect all the flavors in it. Storytelling is 80% honestly telling my client's story, and the other 20% is a unique opportunity to apply creativity in that editorial line." he explains.

Griso sees himself as a director, meticulously orchestrating the narrative of each wedding to ensure that the story of his clients is told with authenticity and flair. "We are the directors of how to tell the story and give importance to all the main actors," he says, emphasizing the collaborative nature of his approach.

At the heart of David’s art lies a deep connection with his clients. He recognizes that his role is not just that of a photographer, but a storyteller who weaves together the narratives of the people he captures. "My product or final result is conditioned by their essence, their values, and their view of the world. My work has to be recognizable to my clients and groundbreaking. They are the protagonists of the story, and I only adopt my role as a narrator. With the aim of enhancing their aesthetics and everything that is important to them," he admits.

Technical Mastery and Creative Expression

"I am a Sony ambassador. My main camera equipment consists of two a7RV bodies along with my favorite lenses from the GMaster series: 24-70mm / 50mm and 70-200mm. For lighting, we work with Profoto. We combine digital with analog and with everything that can provide us with an extra visual creativity."

David’s technical prowess is as impressive as his creative vision. He utilizes the latest cutting-edge technology to capture the essence of his subjects, seamlessly blending digital and analog techniques to create a distinct, timeless aesthetic. "Each wedding is a challenge to bring a new point of inspiration," he says, underscoring his commitment to innovation and experimentation. “We like to have a timeless style, where we stylize or accentuate the editorial line of each wedding with an analog touch,” he adds on post-processing.

However, David Griso's dedication to his craft extends far beyond the technical aspects. He has carefully tailored his workflow to ensure the highest level of service and attention to detail for his clients. "We've reduced it to almost 50% in recent years to offer the best product and dedication to our clients. It will depend on the amount of travel in that year. But the ideal number would be between 15 and 20 weddings per year," he states. By limiting the number of weddings he takes on, David is able to devote his full attention to each client, creating a truly personalized experience. This commitment to quality is further reflected in the flexible approach he takes to wedding coverage.

"We adapt the times to the needs of our clients. We deal with people with totally different situations and organizations. We agree on those times and create a tailor-made plan," he continues. Rather than adhering to a one-size-fits-all model, David works closely with each couple to develop a custom plan that caters to their specific needs and preferences. This attention to detail is also evident in his pricing structure.

By offering a range of options and tailoring his packages to each client, David ensures that his services are accessible and aligned with the unique desires of the couples he works with.

David Griso's unwavering commitment to his clients is further evident in the personal and thoughtful approach he takes to each wedding and photoshoot. He continues, "Adapting that energy to each person is essential. We try to advise them in that process so that they can be themselves and enhance that part of their story. Freezing a LEGACY for them and all future generations. Here and now enjoying the process and the journey. We've come to play!"

By taking the time to understand his clients' unique personalities, values, and aspirations, David Griso is able to craft images that not only captivate the viewer but also resonate deeply with the couple themselves. This dedication to preserving the stories of his clients is a driving force in Griso's work. "Without a doubt, the people. Traveling and growing with each of the people we meet along the way. I always say that photography saved me and taught me to live life differently. Evolution, love, and prosperity are created and maintained by people, so that's the driving force to continue adding value to the world and learning from great human beings," David mentions.

David Griso's passion for people extends beyond his local clients, as he has traveled the world to capture the essence of destination weddings. From the bustling streets of New York to the serene landscapes of Iceland, Griso has honed his craft in some of the most breathtaking locations on earth.

Through his technical mastery, creative vision, and deep personal connection with his clients, David Griso has established himself as a true master of his craft. By capturing the essence of life's most precious moments and preserving them for generations to come, Griso's artistry transcends the boundaries of traditional wedding photography, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of all who behold it.
