Father & hopeless romantic
I wear my heart on my sleeve. I’m either an all-in kind of person, or not at all. Whether it comes to matters of the heart or my work, I throw myself off the deep end. My visual storytelling reflects just that. I am in constant search of capturing an essence, a feeling; a moment. My daughter has shown me that the most important thing to speak on is LOVE. So I immerse myself in it, I pursue it, I breathe it, I live it. It is who I am. It is what I want my work to reflect.
Ultimately, my craft revolves around you. Once charged with capturing one of the most important days of your life, I become more than a photographer. I am a fly on the wall, I’m a listener, I’m a director, I’m an observer and scribe of the nuanced moments your love presents to me. Through this process, I have come to describe my work as being timeless, romantic and intentional.
When I’m not diving deep into wedding photography, I’m hanging out with my little one or best friends. I love spontaneous road trips, accompanied with my favorite people and my favorite music. It is mostly about the journey and not so much the destination.

"As you move through this life and this world, you change things slightly; you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life--and travel--leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks--on your body or on your heart--are beautiful…”
- Anthony Bourdain
Bourdain is one of my heroes, the mans travels ignited a flame inside of me that I don’t think will ever extinguish. I absolutely love the journey, taking a piece of the world with me every single time while always leaving a bit of my heart behind. If your love story leads you to the other side of the world, making your life-long commitments to one another, consider my camera capturing that story.
Some of my past wedding destinations have included Spain, Colombia, and various regions of Mexico and the Americas. I have a special place in my heart for Iceland, Ireland, Scotland & New Zealand! Local destinations such as the majestic National Parks of America are always welcome!
As an aspiring wanderer, there are certain corners of the world that I see in my dreams. I visit them regularly in my mind and yearn to capture a love-tale amongst the majesty of the locations listed below. If you too, have dreamt of these pin-drops on the globe, let’s talk about having me accompany you on your adventure and capture your essence in epic-fashion! These locations come with a discounted rate and will be removed from my bucket list once visited.
"As a Wedding Photographer myself, I hired Dennis to be a second photographer for a wedding I shot last year. After seeing the quality of his work, I knew I needed to hire him for my own wedding... so much so that he was the first person we confirmed availability with when choosing our wedding date! We couldn't be happier with our engagement and wedding photos. He truly goes the extra mile for his clients and his work-ethic is extraordinary. He's easy to get in contact with, incredibly professional, and amazingly talented behind the camera. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat and would recommend him to anyone looking for classic, timeless, and beautiful photography."

"We can't say enough great things about Dennis. My husband and I were planning a wedding from 3,000 miles away, extremely stressful--not any easy task!! Of all the vendors we spoke with and used, he was by far the most accommodating, flexible, and professional and put my mind at ease. Not only was the quality of his work amazing, but he was such a good communicator and had the best follow through. Dennis is so passionate about what he does, I felt like our wedding was just as important to him as it was to us!! We met a couple from OC on our honeymoon who had just gotten engaged; they ended up contacting Dennis for their wedding based on our reco and LOVED him. Highly recommended with utmost enthusiasm!!

"Dennis is a wonderful, professional, and an awesome guy! I met him through my bestfriend and we became close as well! Dennis was great throughout the whole process of our wedding. He did our engagement shoots. We went to three locations since some didn't go as planned. Dennis didn't complain at all. He was actually the one who came up with the idea to do another shoot. You can tell that he really cares about his work and that shows passion. This is what we loved about him. He didn't just point and shoot, he was extra careful on how he placed us and took his time with each shot. His work was so great that it was featured multiple times in big name wedding websites, especially The Knot. We definitely and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer."
