Katrina + Joel | La Verne, CA

"With tips and tricks to make you feel more comfortable in front of the camera your pictures will come out looking natural and you will enjoy your entire time with her. Not only will she capture your day perfectly, but she will help everyone remain calm throughout the day with her demeanor. When you book Denise, you will walk into it with a photographer and away from it with a new friend."

She understands the magnitude of the moment and goes above and beyond to capture this memory with ease. 

Christine + ALex | Sacramento, CA

My husband and I were planning our wedding from out of town, but that didn't have any effect on communication! She was quick to respond to e-mails and questions. On our wedding day, we felt we were in very good hands! Denise knew exactly where to get the best photos and gave us heads up as to what we were doing at what time.  We received some sneak peeks of our wedding photos less than a week after our big day, and they turned out so beautifully!  Book this photographer, you won't regret it!

She was very professional and detail-oriented from the start

Carolynn + Angel | DIXON, CA

She is so kind and truly cares about every single one of her clients. I never felt like I was just another wedding to her. She was an absolute joy to work with and really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She also made it through the chaos that was postponing a wedding and she made it so easy! You will regret it if you do not hire her!

Denise is more than a photographer!

Tusi Family  | San Diego, CA

"She goes above and beyond with delivering priceless pictures that are ones you will definitely cherish. We love that she accurately captures the moment and doesn't over-edit the pictures. She has a great eye for style and lighting. The pictures of our family feel timeless and I know they will age well."

Denise is incredible! The whole package in what we look for in a photographer!
