People love us!
We recently engaged David Wolf (DrDavid) and his team to customize our Smugmug site. David was absolutely terrific to work with and we are completely satisfied with the work that David and his team did for us. If you are considering getting a customizer to assist you with your Smugmug site, we would highly recommend David without reservation. Here is a highlight of our experience:
1. David asks for a small deposit of the total fee for the work up front. Without a personal reference (we relied solely on DGrin as our reference point) this was slightly concerning as we really had no idea what the total cost would end up being or exactly how long things would take.
2. We then spoke with David who provided a verbal estimate of the cost and time to tailor our site based upon our general description of what we were looking for (again verbal, not in writing). This could be a concern if we were to have to pay fees for change orders and additions thought out the project – we were going on trust here. David and team delivered exactly as they said they would for the price that the quoted. We found David and team to be very trustworthy and flexible.
3. David and his very creative graphic artist were to create a revised logo for our company as part of the web site. To complicate matters, we needed the updated logo for pre-event advertising right away. As soon as we sent the deposit, David and team went above and beyond to almost immediately work with us on the logo, revise as necessary and sent over right away – even before work began on the site. (Excellent customer service and delivery).
4. We then sent David a document that described in detail what we wanted for each page on the site. David and team took the time to carefully review our documented requirements and paid attention to all of the details throughout the project.
5. David then “roughed out” the site and scheduled a conference call with us to review.
6. David listed carefully to our requests and concerns.
7. David made very good suggestions based upon his extensive experience. We found his insight to be very valid and helpful.
8. David actually made many of the changes real-time as we discussed what we wanted during the conference call.
9. David also helped with the following: PayPal integration, Domain set-up and integration, Forms data collection, processing and reporting, E-Mail integration, and also created the graphics for the company tagline.
10. The site was completed exactly as promised, on the date promised, at the fee quoted.
11. It is also important to note that the manner in which David and his team set-up the site enables us to independently maintain the site making additions (like added another service), modifications (changing text and images, the size or aspect ratio of the slide show, revise the fields on the contact form, etc.), or deletions.
Again, we would highly recommend David for Smugmug customization. If you have any questions, feel free to review our site www.magnoliamoments.com and contact us via our site.

David really did a nice job. He was on top of everything, and did some extra final touches for me at no extra charge. David’s at the top of my list!
Well here ya go then! My site is at www.kdstewart.net David Wolf of Wolfsnap) did it for me. It was a while ago (maybe a year and a half?) but he worked with me to get it looking like I wanted it to look with his input and expertise – not the other way around. I’m really pleased with the end result.
He has also been there for me several times since as I’ve needed him for trouble shooting, questions, etc. As a matter of fact, just emailed him tonight with something I wanted to do on the site and issue resolved within an hour. He always comes through.
Check him out. He’s the real deal.
I have done quite a lot of my own customizing and I have received generous and effective assistance from SmugMug staff and Dgrinners. Everyone has been wonderful and I am grateful for their expertise and kind help. I even learned enough to assist others in some areas. When I needed the special knowledge, skills, and personal attention for my website to enhance it quickly I hired David Wolf. It was soon clear that he was able to do clever CSS codes and quickly make each of the changes that I wanted. I’m certain that David saved me weeks of effort. He was easily available by email and very responsive. I was pleased that he added a number of changes that I had not thought of. Not one to usually recommend someone, I encourage you to talk with David about your site.
I wanted to add that David still continues to offer rapid response assistance in small changes as a follow up without charge. I think that this is an essential aspect of customization and I wanted folks to know when they are deciding who to hire.
If you are ‘ancient’ like me, your rusty, old BASIC/C++ skills won’t help you much in developing your web site here.
After many frustrating hours of cobbling together CSS and Java Script posted here to get my site started (and I certainly appreciate the effort and thoughtfulness of others as well as the super support from the staff)- I hollered for help! and David Wolf aka DrDavid came to my rescue.
I feel that he did an excellent job of getting my site to look the way I wanted it to. He spent time finding out what I wanted and always got back to me promptly to answer my questions.
I would highly recommend him if you need expert help getting a nice looking site up quickly.
I love the way my website looks after David and I chatted about what my goals were and the vision I had for my website. Not only was I WOWED by the design, but my hit count more than tripled, my pages are easier to access and very professional with an interface I am proud of.

David has really taken my website to the next level. I gave him my vision of a more elegant and streamlined site, and he has given is the complete transformation. I love how he incorporated my numerous ideas and made them come alive. The font he used for my logo even inspired me to design a new logo for my watermark, and that would not have been possible without his re-design. I’m big on details and from the background to the favicon, David has really met and often exceeded my expectations. My website is now something I am very proud to show my potential and current brides. I highly recommend his work if you are looking to bring your website to the next level! David also integrated my blogger with the same design so it feels like you’re still on the same page when you swap between Smugmug and blogger. A very nice touch!

I just had my site customized by Daivd Wolf and I am thrilled with the results! He was responsive, easy to talk to and listened to my needs. He also set me up with Google Apps, Google Checkout and an email address that corresponds with my website! One feature that I love is the ability to email an invoice right to my customers. I also like the contact page so I don’t have to put my personal information on the site. Talk about easy! I struggled trying to customize my own website but gave up after becoming frustrated with HTML. My site now looks very professional and is very easy to navigate! Please feel free to take a look at www.lbgphoto.com.
Thanks again David!
I’ve got to give a great testimonial for David Wolf. I had a specific idea of how I wanted to have my site look and feel (clean, classic, and simple). I was able to do some of the preliminary work myself by reading through all of the tutorials, but I eventually got to a point where I knew my time was better served by calling an expert.
I specifically wanted to add music (which I know some people disagree with, but here in Hawaii music is a big part of the setting). David did an AWESOME job of tidying up my site, adding the music, and giving me some great guidance on how to set things up and make everything work better for me. He set up a blank form for customers to fill out and contact me–it works great! He paid attention to lots of little details. David always responds promptly to my e-mails (does he ever sleep?) and I’m very happy to refer him to others.
Thanks, David, I’m very happy with my site!!
P.S. I found out about SmugMug from another user whom I’d recently met. (Thanks, Bob!) Turns out he also used Dr.David to build his site, so that was enough of a testimonial for me to use him, too!

Thank you to David for being SO easy to work with and for making my great new photography site and blog! I am very pleased with the results, and I am excited to share it with my family and friends.
David also set me up with the Google Apps and gave me an email address that matches my web site, so I finally look “legit!” He is so prompt, and was willing to walk me through everything when it was most convenient for me, which was huge!
I highly recommend David and Wolf Snap!
