Hi, my name is Dennis Mock and I am a San Diego wedding photographer. I specialize in small, intimate weddings and elopements, and I’m easy-going and fun to work with.

Ideal Timeline

So you don’t feel rushed

I just wanted to share a tentative timeline for our 90-minute session together. This timeline will help us avoid feeling rushed and ensure that we capture all the special moments of your big day. 

We will start with just the two of you for 20 minutes, during which we will have a first look at why you love each other. If time allows, we will spend 10 minutes with your family and friends. Please note that the start time is 45 minutes before your appointment, as it is a great way to set the tone for the rest of the day. 

The ceremony will be short but sweet, and you can personalize it by writing your own vows. After the ceremony, we will take playful pictures with your family and friends. And to end the day on a high note, we will take a fun couple portrait that captures your joy and love on this special day.
