Hello there! Welcome to Dennis Crider Photography. I am a wedding documentary-styled photographer in Cleveland Ohio but open to destination weddings around the world. Weddings have been a tradition for centuries in every culture. Your photographer shouldn't be so traditional. I know each wedding is different because YOU are different. You want something tailored to show your personality and style. That's what I do. I document your story and your family/friends. Not the traditional style of pictures you receive from the "Guy with a camera selling his services for next to nothing".
Q: What influences me to capture those tender yet fun moments? A: To make each wedding I do, better than the last one.
Q: How many weddings do you shoot per year on average? 18
Q: What photography internships or apprenticeships have contributed to your training/education? A: Obsession with America's best and what makes them the best.
Q: What other photography interests do you have besides shooting weddings? A: Shooting for 5 years, besides hanging out with my 2 kids and my wife, this is it. This is my passion.
Q: What makes you stand out above the crowd of photographers: A: a chair to stand on. If no chair, I jump really high.
I want to go beyond good and be original with style. It's a passion to capture the best non-fake, unscripted and organic moments of your day that showcases your wedding. Not to recreate the 100 other previous weddings.
