What’s it Like to Work with DMP?

Denise Mack Photography (DMP)… Upholding an undeniable level of FUNprofessionalism!

FUN – as defined by Webster online: “Someone or something that is amusing or enjoyable: an enjoyable experience or person”

PROFESSIONALISM – as defined by Webster online: “The skill, good judgment, and polite behavior that is expected from a person who is trained to do a job well”

FUNprofessionalism – a breakdown per Denise Mack Photography (DMP): “Combining the good judgment and the polite behavior of a skilled artisan who understands that weddings are meant to be an enjoyable, and even amusing, experience!”

 Will I show up at your wedding in jeans and a t-shirt? Hecks no! Will I take the wedding party up on their request (read:  twisting of the arm) to photograph me taking a slug out of the communal bottle of champagne on the pontoon ride back to the reception from the bar across the lake? Um, YES!

“Denise and Jenni were a ton of fun to have join us on our wedding day. We received exactly what we were looking for… fun and quirky photos that were characteristic of who we are as a couple.” ~ Catherine

Here’s a little glimpse into what it’s like to work with me:

First, I strive to make sure that we share an eye for style…

Then, I like to get up close and personal and really get to know about you and your wedding deets….  However, I don’t get all up-in-your-face with pushy hard-sales! Neigh- nay!

When photographing a wedding, I thrive on being that “fly on the wall” – grabbing up all the moments that unfold throughout the day.

As such, no detail will be overlooked….

Capturing a wedding is more than just covering the obvious. You’re looking for something different. Something that stands out from the trendy-trends. You want someone to re-tell your story in a way that is reflective of YOU. You don’t want a photographer ‘staging’ your event. You want all the genuine moments of your day captured naturally – with artistic zing!

You want to remember the emotion tied to the many-moments that combine to define your personalized celebration.

You’ll have laughter:

And you’ll have tears:

There may even be periods of boredom for some:

And then there are those who will devise their own forms of entertainment, such as:




And maybe a little…


And of course…


There are BIG moments:


Fleeting moments:


Laugh-out-loud moments:


Perhaps a few awkward moments:


We typically try to avoid taking photos of people when they are eating….


Or… You know…. When you’re otherwise “occupied”:


Though it is clearly difficult for us to contain ourselves!

But other than that we capture it all – from the prep:


To nervous anticipation….


From that moment when you first lay eyes on one another:


To the special embrace of a father and daughter sharing a dance….


Right on into the celebration!







I have a tendency to see everything as potential art! We photographers love to eat up all those visual details too –




Along with every bit of magic~


Whatever the case…. I love to soak up all of the personalization and meaning behind each couple’s distinctive wedding!

 When you work with Denise Mack Photography – Your photos will be unlike any one else’s –
And there will be plenty of fun had by all!

Here’s a little love from a past bride that covers everything in a nutshell:
“I stumbled upon Denise’s website just doing a google search one evening, and I am so glad I did! I took a leap of faith given that the website was the only information I had to go on. We didn’t even meet prior to the wedding date, as my husband and I don’t live in the city in which we had our wedding. She was very personable, flexible, and easy to work with, as were her assistants…. The photos turned out fabulously, and her price was very reasonable (okay, my parents paid for it, but they were pleased with the price). I would highly recommend Denise Mack Photography!” ~Laura
