Reviews from past clients
"Denise paid attention to all those little details that you or I wouldn't normally see and used them to enhance the moment. We felt really relaxed and comfortable with her. She was professional and flexible." - Wedding Wire Review
"Denise takes the most gorgeous photographs, made us feel comfortable from the very first time we met her, and she simply radiates kindness :) I met Denise first in 2012 when we asked her to take "anticipation" (maternity) photos. These were the most beautiful photos I'd ever had taken, and I know it was more than a pregnancy glow, because in the 9(!) times we have take family photos with her since, we have only ever sought out Denise because of the quality of her work. Denise has taken photos of both my boys from newborn on, as they've been growing up, and it is clear that she has managed to hone an already refined skill in capturing gorgeous photos, into nothing short of an art. She was even somehow able to get several great family pictures with my newborn, my very squirmy 18-month old, my husband, and I all looking great!
Denise also charges very reasonable prices for her work. The quality is far beyond many very pricey professionals in the area.
I treasure the photos Denise has taken of my family and I hope to continue taking photos with her for years to come!" - Yelp Review
"Denise was such a pleasure to work with. We hired her after my sister had a great experience using her for engagement and wedding photos. My husband & I also used her for engagement and wedding photos. For the engagement photos, we were both nervous & she made us feel so comfortable. On your wedding day you have so much to worry about and she was not one of the things I was worried about at all the day of the wedding; it was very nice to take something as important as wedding photos and not stress about them the day of. She was willing to try any of the photo ideas we had. Not only is she an incredible photographer, she is reasonably priced. I would highly recommend her!" - Wedding Wire Review
"She is friendly, passionate, professional and incredibly fun! I will continue to use her services throughout my life. She captured so many emotional and exciting moments and the photos are absolutely beautiful!" - Wedding Wire Review
"Denise did a wonderful job capturing the memories from our wedding. It was such a great surprise to get our photos and realize how many little moments she had captured from the day. Denise also has the kind of personality a person can't resist; she is personable yet professional and a whole lot of fun! I would highly recommend Denise to anyone looking for a talented photographer."
"Oh my heavens......you are one exceptionally talented photographer! Your love for animals and people is so evident in both your persona and your photography. We absolutely have fallen in love with the pictures you've taken. It's so amazing how you've captured Molly's personality....."
"My boudoir shoot with Denise was a complete success. She was so fun to work with and made me feel completely relaxed and comfortable; her encouragement and energy built my confidence while she worked; her work is natural and beautiful. Such a pro! This shoot was an intimate and memorable gift for my husband; he was so impressed and excited! It was a perfect anniversary gift! Thank you so much Denise!"
"Many thanks again to Denise for taking these beautiful baby bump photos.
If anyone in the Madison area is looking for a photographer to capture their special events or moments, I would definitely recommend Denise. Not only does she do beautiful work, but she's professional and definitely makes you feel comfortable! "
