About Dean MacKay Photography

Dean MacKay

Owner / Lead Photographger

I'm a wedding and fine art photographer, and hopeless romantic, based near Joshua Tree, California, shooting unforgettable couples all over Southern California, western Nevada and Arizona. I can also be found in New York City and New Jersey, Maine, and all along the New England coast, as well as Seattle, Denver, East Texas, Philadelphia, Central Pennsylvania and other destinations! My style is mix of photojournalist, traditional, and an ever evolving creativity for your bridal portraits, to produce images that are beautiful, timeless, and artistic. I love to mix in a little black and white, too.

I go above and beyond to learn very detail, and anticipate every moment. I want you to remember every detail like Grandma's flowers, your sister's surprise visit, or that special gift your soon to be Father-in-law gives you. I want to see the nervous excited expression on your face as your mother helps with your veil, or put on your bow tie. I want to capture that moment you first see each other, put a ring on each other's fingers, and kiss. I want to celebrate each dance, each toast, and that first slice of cake. I'm passionate about my work. I would love to photograph your wedding.

  • Truly a Superb Experience

    Dean exceeded our expectations. He was super attentive and made the whole process less nerve wrecking , as I am a very shy person. Concerns and suggestions were welcome without judgement . He truly was very patient and warm. I could not be happier with the end product. Dean Photography offered superb customer service. Constant communication throughout and delivered on his word. I would highly recommend Dean Mackay Photography for any occasion.

    Dean was great. He went out of his way to chat with us before we had the chance to meet in person (we were traveling from out of country), and met with us at our ceremony site the day before to really make sure he captured our vision. The photos turned out great, and Dean really made us feel listened to and supported. Can't recommend him enough!

    My husband and I are so happy we chose Dean to be our wedding photographer. He left us an amazing gallery of 700 photos to choose from. He has an excellent attention to detail. He came to our venue the day before the ceremony at the time of the wedding to make sure he got the lighting and all of the posed photo spots picked out. He was extremely fairly priced, and did great work with all of the photos we received back. He communicated with us often in the months leading up to the wedding as well as after when we were getting the photos back, even offering some prints to us. He was professional, fun, and friendly. Dean went above and beyond with our wedding photos, and we would be happy to recommend him to anyone needing a professional photographer.
