Born & raised in Los Angeles, Dennis was exposed to the world of art at a very early age. Raised by a passionate and artistic single mother, she constantly surrounded him with creatives, teachers, and mentors who groomed the way he saw the world and how he ultimately learned to approach his art.

Photographer

Dennis Roy Coronel

As a purveyor of love stories, he draws inspiration from many sources including - fashion, cinema, music, art, but none more important than his greatest source of love - his daughter. Capturing the nuances of a couple's love requires more than just the mastery of one's craft; it requires intuition, an open heart and a willingness to listen with all senses.

Father

With a background in narrative filmmaking, Dennis can bring his unique vision to the stories at play in front of him. Carefully guiding his subjects into beautiful light, and performing a balancing act between artist and fly-on-the-wall. He marries elements from fashion, art, and cinema to portray his subjects with a rich, timeless, and editorial sensibility.

Testimonials

"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."

"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

Somewhere over the pacific

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.
