How I work

My focus is on being their when you need me and blending into the background when you don’t. I want to you enjoy your day with your loved ones and have photographs that show that! Our portrait sessions will be short and relaxed. I will guide you through subtle posing that won’t make you want to cringe!

I am fully focused on providing you with premium service from the minute we first chat right through to your album delivery. I want to create an experience for you that goes far beyond the photography.

“From day one to receiving the final photos, Dena was always in contact and would send us the occasional sneaky peeks of what to expect. Dena and the photography was an experience on its own. Not just a component of the wedding plans, Dena captured the day with ease, which allowed us to relax and enjoy our day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts”

“We hired Dena to do photography for our wedding this year and we were delighted with everything! From the beginning Dena was friendly, attentive to the details and very communicative which made it one less stress when planning a wedding. The photos themselves were magical. Exactly what we wanted; she captured the genuine moments between family and friends as well as our planned shots. We highly recommend booking Dena to capture your special moments. Dena, thank you so much for everything! The photos are beautiful and will have us smiling for a very long time”
