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
