"My daughter and future son-in law chose Denise Jane as the photographer for their May wedding. I had not met Denise until the day of the wedding. She did an excellent job of capturing all the photos of the different families and incorporating the soon to be new families. Denise knew just how to put groups together and what suggestions to make that would create memories for years to come. She was present from 1P.M. until at least 9P.M. and captured all aspects of the day, before, during, and after the ceremony. Denise was able to capture great photos of the bride and groom in ways that I would have never thought of. It's very obvious Denise has been a photographer for awhile. I would recommend Denise Jane as the photographer for your special events."

She captured the essence of our relationship
Working with Denise to capture my pups, twice now, has been just the best thing I've done. The first time was about ten years ago in 2018 with my senior pup Winston, my Old English Sheepdog. She captured our lives together perfectly. We were homebodies and taking our photos in our backyard,in our home playing, walking down our street...just being together was perfect. He passed shortly after the photo session and I am just so grateful to have those memories even today. Recently, we met up and we had a session with my two pups Matilda and Farley, also OES, in VA. Again, she captured the essence of our relationship. We travel together and explore, going to various OES events around the country, so having our photo shoot in a beautiful park on one of our trips just set the tone. Every picture shows the love between me and my "kids". I now have those memories to hold long into the future. Thanks Denise, again for your love and patience with the pups and me, I am forever grateful!! If you have furry family members, please trust Denise with your memories.

Cherish our Wedding picture forever
Denise did an outstanding job photographing out wedding. (Even on the hottest day in spring!) We have a large family and Denise did a great job creating a schedule so everyone knew when it was their time to be in pictures. She captured everything from family to friends, decorations, unforgettable funny moments, and everything in between. We will cherish our wedding pictures forever and highly recommend Denise Jane.

more beautiful than we expected
Denise is a fantastic, very professional photographer. What started out as a simple family photo session turned into a two year "project" due to family schedules (which required two photos sessions), changes made by us to the original package, and additional photos requested that were not in the original package. Through all of this Denise was so kind and patient. She never hesitated to travel a great distance to our location. With her knowledge, wisdom, suggestions and professionalism, Denise guided us through this project which ended up more beautiful than we expected. The family portrait is amazing! We are so pleased with all the photos and the family albums. Denise is the best!

the best version of yourself and a customized experience
"Denise ensures that your session is personalized and that your photos capture looks that authentically represent you. Denise doesn't just give you photographs, she gives you an experience that I will remember for years to come. Denise is incredibly attentive to detail from helping me choose the perfect outfits before our session to guiding me through each pose; I couldn't have felt more comfortable. Denise spent hours with me working to craft the perfect looks and the end results were astonishing. If you want photos to make you look like the best version of yourself and a customized experience, Denise Jane will not disappoint."

Truly could not ask for a better photographer.
Denise goes above and beyond to make sure my headshots, autograph cards, ad pages, buttons, etc. are always perfect and I am so thankful for her and her family! I wouldn't go anywhere else. DJ Portrait Design is home.

comfortable, fun, and incredibly successful
Denise Jane made my very first real photoshoot comfortable, fun, and incredibly successful! She went over and beyond working with me to make sure we got the perfect images. My headshots turned out better than I ever thought possible!
continues to bring my visions and ideas to life
I've been shooting with Denise Jane since my senior year. Now 25, Denise continues to bring my visions and ideas to life. My senior portraits were done in an airplane and now she is helping me take flight in my aspirations to become a model . Finding such a professional photographer and portrait designer with her expertise and knowledge is hard to beat!

recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer
Denise did a wonderful job on my daughters senior portraits. The outdoor places she took her to turned out to be some of the best photos. Thank you for your hard work on them. I will recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer.

She made our whole family feel so comfortable
Denise Jane is not only the most talented photographer but also the most personable. She made our whole family feel so comfortable; even our 3 year old! Her lighting, angles, and just overall ability to enhance the whole experience is uncanny.

went above and beyond what we expected
Denise has been taking photos of Bailey since she was little, when Sr. Pictures came up of course she chose her to do them. I will have to say that Denise, her husband, and basically her entire family went above and beyond what we expected to capture the true Bailey. She even invited us to spend the day with them at the Lake (while they were on vacation camping) to capture beautiful lake and river scenery as part of our package. She and her husband had to clear a path down a steep embankment as well as hoist her equipment just to get some beautiful river scene photos. Thank you Denise for making Baileys experience such a pleasure.

I completely fall in love with every shot
I've known Denise Jane for 3 years (maybe more) and I have never had a bad experience working with her. She is kind, caring and really knows how to capture the perfect shot. I have worked with her for pageants and senior pictures and each time I completely fall in love with every shot.
