Some of my past clients include US Olympic athletes, NBA dancers, NFL cheerleaders, renowned business owners and professionals, best selling authors, and Instagram influencers.

 It can be overwhelming searching for photographers in Phoenix for family photos, senior portrait photography, engagement photography, maternity photography, or just a fun session to celebrate your love story with your significant other. I specialize in beautiful, genuine, natural portraits. I blend light posing with prompts to help you relax and showcase emotion in your photo session. It’s not all serious – photography sessions  with me are fun, relaxed, and not scripted. We’ll do some traditional poses, but the best results come from running, being silly, and laughing with each other.

Photography for the Adventurous at Heart

Do you have an adventurous side, or want something a little out of the box? Portrait sessions for couples, high school seniors, college seniors, and engagements are a great time to showcase your personality or love of the outdoors and get out of the city.

Do you want to plan something that’s outside the Phoenix, AZ area? Want to get creative and book a photography session in Sedona, Flagstaff, Horseshoe Bend, or somewhere out of state? Did I mention I love to travel? Message me and let’s talk about your adventure and plan something special!

Phoenix Portrait Photographer

Meet Dave

Hi, I’m Dave, your local Phoenix photographer, and the guy behind the lens at Dave Bentley Photography. Originally from the East Coast and now based out of Tempe, AZ, I’m a published and award winning photographer specializing in portrait, lifestyle, and travel photography. Whether you see me on the trails in Sedona, or around town in Phoenix, AZ, you’ll rarely see me without a camera.

I love photography, and it has been my passion since I was a kid carrying around a 35mm film camera and mailing rolls off to get developed. I’ve always loved how photography captures a moment in time or someone’s personality, and tells a story. 

I’m a Phoenix Arizona photographer available across the Valley, including Scottsdale, Tempe, Ahwatukee, Paradise Valley, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek, Fountain Hills, and San Tan Valley. I shoot with a modern style that’s focused on an inspiration of true to life colors, but blending in the warmth of the natural desert landscape. I don’t like to focus on trends that will make your photos look outdated in a couple years when those popular trends are over.

Authentic, bold, and modern.
Professional portrait photography for your lifestyle.
