Our Story

At Aerial Outfitters, our approach to business is not like your typical corporate box shop...it's different...it's an experience. So let's get started!

Our History:
I got my start in the early 1990's when a family friend took me flying in his Mooney M-20G to explore a section of the Brazos River for an upcoming Boy Scout canoe trip. It was here that I got my first taste of aerial photography. Later, while working as a flight test engineer for Bell Helicopter, I had the privilege of photographing several flight test aircraft and began picking up a few aerial photography assignments from another local photographer. I was also honored to volunteer my time as the 'official' photographer for our church. In 2009, Dave Hughling Photography LLC was opened, providing portrait photography for Scout troops, high school bands, families, and ground/aerial work. Two years later, in 2011, Aerial Outfitters opened for business.

Since then, we've had the opportunity to work with many wonderful clients and help them create beautiful imagery. We've also worked hard to earn our spot as Texas' leading nighttime aerial photography company specializing in high school football and marching bands. 

As of late 2012, our family has begun formal training to serve as missionaries with a Mission Aviation organization, such as MAF, which uses airplanes to reach remote people groups with the Gospel & physical help!

Our Philosophy:

It's simple: To take care of our clients and do the job right.

So no matter if you're new to our industry or an experienced pro looking for a new partner, as our client you'll be treated with utmost respect as we work together on your project.
