Nice to meet you!

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

My experience in sports and architectural photography has given me a natural sense of composition, which I use to capture the unique personalities and love stories of each couple I work with. I’m committed to making my clients feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, resulting in natural and authentic photographs that truly reflect their love and happiness.

If you’re planning a civil wedding, I would be honored to document your special day. I promise to give you photographs that you will treasure for a lifetime

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.

Dennis is such a very wonderful, talented photographer. We enjoyed the session with him and he is very accommodating. He is very prompt and yet he never makes you feel like “time is ticking” and you need to hurry up. Very cool guy and very artistic. He would make you do poses you think are awkward but later on turns to be nice! Recommend this guy! – Lesly
