Photo studio shoots,
Thanks to Dennis for a very thoughtful and informational session. I was treated with respect and was totally happy with his professionalism. He gave me directions through out the whole session which really helped.His wife was also of tremendous help since I was shooting wedding dresses. She made sure I could get into them comfortable. I had a great session and to be honest Dennis did a great job at making sure the lights where right for each shoot. Pictures came out almost perfectI will hire him again.Dec 18, 2018Verified
Dennis was flexible with a request for a head shot with 24-48 hr. notice. His home studio is located in a lovely neighborhood, is well equipped and exceeded my expectations. He was professional, knowledgeable, and wanted to capture the best photo as much as I wanted him to. I was able to see pictures as he took them and we made wardrobe and posing adjustments as we went along. He provided copies of the images within hours! Thank you Dennis. It was a pleasure working with you and meeting your wife.Apr 24, 2017Verified
Dennis is an excellent photographer. He made me feel very comfortable. His equipment and setup are highly professional. He took many shots and let me review them until I found several that I was perfectly happy with. The fees are very moderate and the delivery is very fast.Apr 10, 2017Verified
Dennis was a pleasure to work with. He helpfully detailed his process, and the intended results at each major step in his process. In relatively short order, the result was a flattering portrait. I look forward to seeking him out again the next time I need this range of professional photographic service.Sep 12, 2018VerifiedDennis Soans Photography's reply
Thank you Mike - it was an honor for me to know that the photo will be displayed on the Hall of Fame..!!! I must say this was my most satisfying shoot yet and you were the best in front of the lens uniform and all...!!! 👌👌
This was my first time hiring a professional Photographer for some head shots taken. Dennis was very helpful to calm my nerves and provided helpful tips. I loved my picture and happy I decided to do this. I highly recommend Dennis . We will definitely hire him again soon for family portrait .Aug 19, 2018VerifiedDennis Soans Photography's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, I offer three packages for headshots and reasonable market rates that compare well with the Northern Virginia area. I will send out my price list with all details on request.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I will send any potential clients my price sheet and when they decide that they may want to work with me, I will send them an agreement/contract/model release to sign. I prefer to work from my home studio for headshots but can travel to location as needed for Graduation, Lifestyle,Family portraits as well as private or corporate events and real estate photography. My clients can see my prior work on web site or will send private links if requested.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a self taught photographer and shooting events since my 20s. Since the beginning of 2016, I have been doing this professionally.
