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."

"We will forever be grateful for our beautiful photos from Denise. During each of our times working with Denise we laughed and felt completely comfortable. Even my husband who hates taking photos, enjoyed working with Denise."

I wish I could give Denise 1000 stars!

Josh + Megan | Auburn, CA

"She has her own bright colorful style and is plenty talented enough to reach outside of that to get the kind of shots that you want. She's good at what she does because she's well trained and well educated in this line of work."

I could not imagine a better person for the job. 

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!
