About Davy

“Relationships are defined in quiet moments of truth . . .”-Davy Knapp

Davy has been involved in creating fine art since he was 14 years old. He began painting using pastel, oil and watercolor paints. Although he has experimented with photography most of his life, photography has been his choice form of expression for the past 14 years. “I photographed my first wedding 13 years ago and said that I would never photograph another wedding . . .” Davy laughs, “now weddings are my passion.” “I didn’t like weddings because everything was check list style photography–it was very canned.”

Davy’s style underwent a distinctive change when he realized the importance of what goes on behind the scenes at a wedding. “Relationships are defined in quiet moments of truth . . . not in the [wedding] production that everyone else sees.”

Capturing these quiet moments is the challenge that drives him today. “There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that you have captured photographs that will truly immortalize the anticipation and thrill that my clients feel on their wedding day.”

Davy has been commissioned to photograph weddings and families throughout Texas, the United States, South America and the Caribbean. His work has been selected for publications such as The Texas Wedding Guide, Texas Highways, Frisco Style, On Magazine, Cattle Baron Magazine, Amarillo Style and Accent West. One of his images was  chosen to headline a national advertising campaign for Mpix.com. He was featured in Amarillo Globe News as well as voted Amarillo’s Best Photographer 2003. He maintains a diverse real estate investment portfolio in Texas and is often sought out for consulting on the subject of small business marketing.

Davy is an avid flyfisherman and hunter. He and his wife Cassy and their 3 dogs love traveling and touring the country in their RV. They reside in Amarillo, Texas.

“I’m very grateful to be a photographer. I am honored each time a new couple or family includes me in the happiest time of their life.” -Davy Knapp
