D for site trim bottom white lineThank you for visiting our blog. I’m Denise Chastain, principal photographer and owner of Modern Wedding Photography. I’m delighted and honored that you are considering us to be part of your wedding day. The best compliment my team and I can receive from our clients is, “I know you were photographing my wedding, but how did you get all of these great photos?” As our slogan states, “You’ll be too busy having fun to know we were even there”. My goal is for you to love your wedding photographs and forget that we are there photographing your most special of days. I love photographing weddings, its hard work, but a lot of fun and most of all rewarding. We are creating your family heirlooms; something that will be cherished for generations to come.

I’ve been shooting professionally for over 20 years. I’m proud to have my work appear on magazine, book, and cd covers. Feature articles and national advertising campaigns have also played host to my images. I have also been fortunate enough to contribute to various industry magazines, (Photo District News & Studio Photography/Design Magazine), sharing my years of expertise and insight with my contemporaries. I started Modern Wedding Photography after many years of shooting the weddings of my commercial clients. Commercial clients would hire me for my creative esthetic, my ability to capture emotion, and distinct point of view. They also realized these traits would make me the perfect choice to photograph their weddings as well. I photograph each wedding with a photojournalism approach. Portraits are taken at your request with a natural editorial feel. One of my assists will accompany me on your wedding day to assist and second shoot.

I am honored to be an award winning member of the amazing Wedding Photojournalist Association, a Photo District News Top Knots best in category winner, Junebug Weddings Top 10 NYC photographers, The Knot Best of Weddings Pick, Knot Hall of Fame and Fearless Photographers. Call my team and I today to book your appointment. We are excited to hear all about your wedding day. Phone 516.823.7315 or 212.332.9695
