MEET DENISE CHASTAIN
Hello and thank you for wanting to learn more about Modern Wedding Photography. I’m Denise Chastain a passionate, enthusiastic New York photographer who wants to capture your wedding day with a natural and candid approach. I’m in the business of you enjoying your wedding day, putting you at ease and helping you forget the camera is there. Hire the photographer whose work and personality you love. My best clients are the ones who trust me as a person and an artist. Try to let go of any preconceived notions of what wedding photographs should look like. I hope you want to be surprised and delighted when you see the images from your wedding day. Your photographs should be an honest interpretation of this significant event.
Why do I photograph weddings? I started my career as a magazine and advertising photographer. My wedding business grew from my commercial client list. Art directors and editors were looking for charismatic images of their wedding day. It was important they had a photographer they felt comfortable with and who would deliver inspiring images. There is an intense amount of planning and production that goes into a wedding, similar to the coordination of a commercial shoot. Commercial shoots lack the historical and emotional rewards that weddings provide as an artist. No one will cherish an advertisement or magazine article like you will cherish your wedding photographs. I find photographing your wedding day to be a great honor and incredibly gratifying.
