We hired Denise to photograph our 40 person wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, and we couldn't be happier with her work. Even in the weeks leading up to the event we already had a good feeling about her as she was extremely responsive to our inquiries and understanding of our needs. On the day of the event, she arrived punctually and setup quickly and efficiently. Denise demonstrated her professionalism by asking all the right questions about how the event will run and what we want. We were particularly impressed with how much effort she put in to not interfere with guests mingling or disturb the ceremony with too many flashes. In fact, we can barely recall seeing her during the ceremony but in the end we got tons of great photos from different angles. When we asked her to do some family portraits after the ceremony, she really showed her knowledge of the location and lighting by directing and positioning us in the best way to capture us with the setting sun colors. Though we had only booked her for the first half of the event, Denise went out of her way to stay a bit longer to capture little things like the cake and table settings, as well as all the guests at their tables. The turnaround on getting the final edited photos to us was faster than expected and in the end we got a very nice and comprehensive set of photos beautifully capturing our day. We highly recommend Denise and wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.

Denise was wonderful! She photographed our son's Christening and did an amazing job! She sent over so many photos of us and all our guests, captured such nice candids, and gave us everything we asked for. She's very responsive and willing to go the extra mile for her clients!

Denise was professional and fun! She took the most beautiful pictures. I highly recommend her for all of your photographic needs. She didn't miss a moment of my wedding every time I turned around she was there snapping pics. Excellent experience.

Denise's Thumbtack profile caught my attention right away when I was searching for a photographer to capture my baby shower. Denise responded to my inquiry right away and was very communicative as my husband and I were making our decision, hiring, and planning for the shower. Her pricing is also very fair. This is our first baby so it was a very special occasion and therefore, it was very important to us to have a photographer that was friendly/down-to-earth, creative and would capture all our family memories. Denise checked off all those boxes! Both my husband and I and all our guests had a lovely experience with Denise at the shower and love the quality of the photos and moments she captured! She also did a great job hiding my medical boot from an ankle injury which was much appreciated. We would definitely book Denise again and highly recommend her to others!

Terrific pics. We hired Penguin Moon Studio for our daughter's Sweet 18. Staff arrived before start of party and took pics of our birthday girl and her friends. During the party the photographer took so many wonderful pics and was very professional. We got the final edits in less than 2 weeks. We were very happy with the service.
