Palmer Photography is a full service photography boutique, which provides custom portraits and landscape photography by owner and photographer David Palmer. The end product will be a beautiful piece of heirloom art, typically ready to hang. From the portrait consultation, to the portrait session, and the delivery of the finished portrait, I am with you every step of the way. I want to make sure you have the best portrait experience possible. You will find that I offer a top tier product, and stellar customer service.

I am not simply a photographer, I am a print artist, meaning that the end result of my work is a beautifully printed portrait. My goal is to bring your portrait to life as a work of art, through a beautifully created print. I want to provide you with an exquisite display with which to adorn your home.

Who is Palmer Photography for:

  • Palmer Photography is for the client who wants a full service portrait experience.
  • Palmer Photography is for the client who wants to become a work of art.
  • Palmer Photography is for the discerning client who wants beautiful portraits to adorn their home as a gorgeous piece of personalized art.
  • Palmer Photography is for the client who wants their portraits to be heirloom art which will be unaffected by technological advances, and can be handed down throughout succeeding generations.
  • Palmer Photography is for the client who understands the intrinsic value of professional prints, as opposed to digital photos.

Who is Palmer Photography not for?

  • Palmer Photography is not for the client who simply wants a disc full of images. We believe that professional portraits deserve a professional print.

We provide heirloom art that is meant for display. If you want to preserve your family and your memories in a truly timeless fashion, Palmer Photography is for you.


I developed a passion for photography as a teenager, and began learning from my father, who was a talented photo enthusiast. I later took my skills to the next level by enrolling in the New York Institute of Photography. It didn’t take long before  people began asking me to photograph events. . . such was the beginning of my professional photography journey. Since taking my first client in 2002, I have provided professional photography services throughout the CSRA (including Barnwell, Williston, Aiken and surrounding areas in South Carolina).

Using time-honored techniques, along with the latest in digital technology and enhancements, I will provide you with premium portraits that look better than reality. Your portraits will be premium quality prints, which will be cherished for a lifetime and beyond as they are passed from one generation to the next. I specialize in bridal portraits, family portraits, general portraiture, and landscape photography. Take a look at my credentials.
