Dennis Viera

Dennis Viera is an international, award-winning wedding photographer based in San Francisco, California. At the age of 15 when Dennis was working as a busboy in his hometown of Newport, Rhode Island, he found a lost camera. He turned it in and anxiously waited the 90 day wait period until it was his. That's how it all began. While pursuing a Media Studies degree at the University of San Diego, he started pursuing his love for photography more seriously by photographing for his college newspaper. At that point, he handed himself over to photography - devouring everything the medium had to offer and exploring his passion for visual story telling. Dennis loves photographing urban culture, fashion, editorial, and architecture and weddings give him the opportunity to weave together everything he's ever learned or experienced to tell each client's story in a unique way. When Dennis isn't busy photographing or traveling, he can be found hanging out with his son Alex, surfing, fishing, buying records, and taking more pictures. Dennis is also very passionate about music and has been DJing for almost a decade with bookings throughout Southern California.
