Brief Bio:
My wife Stefani and I have a portrait photography studio in Roseville, CA. If I had to describe my style in one word it would be romantic. I don’t shoot with the rules in mind but try to just stick to what is lovely to me. If I can stay just outside of reality with my images then they are a success. Passion first, vision second, and the rest you can pick up on the way.

“I was born in the Midwest. As a touring musician, fell in love with the Pacific northwest and decided to make it my home. When I stopped touring and started a family I picked up a camera for the first time with a different eye.

Shooting my first child really began my love affair with the camera. I began to photograph anything and everything around me. Just about all of my free time was spent with a camera or a book about photography in my hand. Eventually I became the friend that you would call if you needed some shots done, and it just grew from there. Twelve years later I have photographed people from all walks of life, from celebrities to children, and I haven’t stopped. I try to pick up my camera every day and try something new.”

Dennis is a wedding photographer in Northern New Jersey who shoots all over the North East. He mixes a real and intimate documentary style with epic, wow factor portraits. His path with photography started with an interest in his teens inspired by his father and grandfather, but truly ignited in college. His initial intent was to be a skateboarding photographer, which to this day still heavily influences his non traditional style. But, during college while assisting a wedding photographer, Dennis found that weddings offered the versatility, creativity, and meaningfulness that he was looking for. When not shooting and obsessing about photography, Dennis enjoys spending time with his wife, traveling as much as possible, and almost anything that will get him outdoors.
