Dennis' photos … just vibrated with life, like, how am I crying about this strangers wedding?! My wedding photos look natural and beautiful, they're some of the best photos I've seen of many people in my family. 

     You can't believe he got that shot because it was like he wasn't there.

We had an amazing experience with Dennis! He has photographed three weddings in our family so far and each one was perfect! (I hope he is still working when our daughter gets married!)

The first thing I noticed in my pictures was how much fun everyone was having. As the bride and groom, you can't possibly enjoy every happy moment as it's happening...Dennis gave us the opportunity to enjoy everyone's joy!

I never thought I could look so beautiful.

He is a funny, fun and gentle presence on the wedding day.

Wedding Portfolio

The work of Baltimore wedding photographer Dennis Drenner has been shaped by 20 years shooting for the nation’s most respected newspapers and magazines – and toughest photo editors. At places like the Washington Post, Dennis formed his unobtrusive style of photography which eschews staged photos and emphasizes real moments which stand the test of time. His wedding photographs have won accolades in photo contests by Brides Magazine, the WPJA, and the ISPWP, and he has been a favorite of brides in both the Knot and WeddingWire annual surveys. Check out his Wedding Wire reviews here.

Family Portfolio

When he’s not photographing weddings in Baltimore and the surrounding areas, Dennis is a sought-after family portrait and child photographer. His easy-going and unscripted approach to portraiture is both fun for his adult clients and well-suited to the ever-changing moods and interests of small children. In 2011, Dennis was selected to do the official Holiday portrait of Vice President Joe Biden and family.
