After more than 25 years in the business and numerous accolades, including 14 years as an award-winning photographer for the Chicago Sun-Times, projects for Time, the American Bar Association Journal, and Chicago Tribune Sunday Magazine, Bob Davis’ passion continues to carry him around the globe in pursuit of meaningful storytelling opportunities. Davis believes that the power of photojournalism lies in its ability to tell a story by documenting moments in time and vividly reflecting them back to the viewer.
Now, a partner in his own endeavor, Bob & Dawn Davis Photography & Design, their client list reads like a “Who’s Who”of entertainment’s elite. Recently, he had the honor of photographing ABC's TV show The Bachelorette Ashley's wedding to J.P. in Pasadena, California.

He is also a Canon Explorer of Light, a Westcott Top Pro Elite Photographer, a member of the SanDisk Extreme Team.
Bob loves to photograph weddings for the pure joy and exuberance of the occasion. Capturing those fleeting moments creates a record of one of the most important days in a couple’s life.
