Testimonials of Denise Apgar Photography. Sacramento, Northern California, and beyond.




Denise went above and beyond from the very beginning. As soon as we inquired about information, she reached out to us and answered all our questions right away. She emailed all of the necessary information in terms of planning and payment ahead of time and worked with us to fit our schedules. Pictures were also delivered promptly both for our engagement session and wedding day. The day of, she was well prepared with her team. She had sent a questionnaire and timeline ahead of time so we knew which pictures would be taken when and who needed to be ready. She took charge, but was also flexible to any changes. Honestly, we felt such a relief that she was there guiding everything. Her happy personality brought joy and peace to the whole experience. It felt more like having a friend there with us rather than just another vendor. I highly recommend Denise to anyone wanting high quality work and an easy, amazing wedding experience.

From our initial meeting with Denise, she felt like family (which is great as she will get up close in your personal moments with you “professional third wheeler”, right?). I got the special opportunity to work with her as a client and as a professional, and she truly is the real deal. Our friends and family continue to comment on how much fun she was, and how perfectly our day was captured. We could not have asked for a more perfect photographer for our special day, and we cannot wait for her to capture more special moments in our lives as they develop. Denise’s work is next to none, and we love reliving our wedding day through photos everyday. Thank you Denise!

Denise is professional, personable, and a phenomenal photographer! She understands the magnitude of the moment and goes above and beyond to capture this memory with ease. 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. With that being said, she is very attentive and focuses in on every detail. When it comes to editing your photos, I can tell she sat and looked at each frame. There isn’t a blanket preset thrown over our gallery. She makes sure each image is at the highest quality and does so with a great turn around time. After shooting our engagement photos with her and seeing the gallery of them, I am so thankful we have chosen her to do our wedding!! I know that not only will she capture our 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

Talk about above and beyond JUST a photographer! Denise did everything to make sure our experience with her was more personal than just a “hired gun” on the job. She met with us many times to get to know us, she asked a lot of questions to make sure that she produced exactly what we wanted from our pictures, and she was soooo much fun to have on the day of. As a photographer/videographer myself, I could not imagine a better person for the job. 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. It was important to me that we got someone who doesn’t just buy an expensive camera, watch a few YouTube videos, and call themselves a professional photographer. Denise has worked with many other photographers, spent hours on a real education in photography, and loves what she does.
