We've been ogling stunning photos by our New Jersey-based longtime photography partner Dennis Pike for years now and STILL never ever ever can get over how amazing they are. No seriously: when we first stated working with him, all of us were heart eyes emoji-ing his photos and he still never stops surprising us with his use of light, shadows, and composition. It's real artistry and I can't believe that y'all can hire him for your wedding photos. Peeking at his portrait portfolio is like falling into the looking glass in a love wonderland. My kingdom to be in just one of these colorful, golden hour-lit photos. The best part of working with Dennis is that he's been owning offbeat weddings for his entire career. Some of his very favorite weddings came from readers like you and it's a match made in heaven every time. Dennis is also a great dude to have around and will spend real time to get to know YOU, how you met, what's going to be your wedding vibe, and how he can make MAGIC at your chosen venue. We talked to him about his favorite aspects of working with Offbeat Bride readers and here's how he felt about it… "I couldn’t say that I could pick on favorite aspect of photographing offbeat weddings. I love it all. I love the couples, the chaos, the emotion, the variety of cultures, venues, traditions, and personalities. I also love to travel for weddings (I travel pretty frequently for weddings: five different countries last year alone!). I love crafting portraits, and I love documenting the reality and authenticity. He loves working with you and everything you bring to your wedding. And apparently makes misty, glowing, fluffy fabulousness happen like this… OH: and when a photographer is up front with their pricing? That's when we really fall in love. His packages include 14 hours of coverage(!), high-resolution edited images, an online gallery to share with family and friends, and his killer talent. Good luck trying to pick out your favorites to print. There will be… many. Dennis' work is worth every penny when you see the way you'll look for.ev.er in your wedding photos. Basically like a magical unicorn lit by snowflakes in the morning light of Narnia. Think I'm exaggerating? I'm totally not. OMG those amazing candids, though… Oh, and dramatic love shots? Get ready… Dennis is popular AF with our readers, obviously, so make sure you hit him up ASAP to get your date on his books. Dennis is based in Northern New Jersey, but he travels literally anywhere to capture your wedding. If you want to become one of his clients looking like angels, he'll come to you!
