behind the lens

Hellloooo — I’m Denise! I unexpectedly fell in love with photography about two years ago & truthfully never considered that this would be my career until God put a camera in my hand. Maybe it isn’t photography itself that I’m so in love with. I fall in love with the expression on your face when you see the back of my camera on the most joyful day of your life. I fall in love with the simple texts or pictures I receive of my work on your walls. Those images that you walk past and make you think of your engagement shoot when your crazy photographer convinced you to hike to the top of a mountain in the dark at sunrise. My heart throbs when generations down the line get to hang these same photos on their wall or have one of my images to remember their family by. Yeah that. All of that. Wrapped up into one big beautiful image is what I fell deeply, madly, passionately in love with. Blessing others with that memory, captured forever.
