Dean MacKay Photography is wedding and fine art photographer, based near Joshua Tree, California, shooting unforgettable couples all over Southern California, including Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Temecula, everywhere in between, and beyond.

Each celebration is a sacred, once in a lifetime, celebration of love.

Dean cares about each couple that he works with. He wants to deliver you memories for a lifetime. But, he's not there just to take your picture. He'll be there to guide, and help you through the entire process, from the first conversation.

Dean MacKay Photography doesn't want miss a thing.

Dean goes above and beyond to learn very detail, and anticipate every moment. He wants 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. He wants to see the nervous excited expression on your face as your mother helps with your veil, or put on your bow tie. He wants to capture that moment you first see each other, put a ring on each other's fingers, and kiss. Dean wants to celebrate each dance, each toast, and that first slice of cake.

Dean loves what he does. He's passionate about weddings.

Dean MacKay Photography would love to photograph yours.

Dean's style is mix of photojournalist for the ceremony, to capture each moment as it unfolds.

    Above and Beyond

    He was great! Unreasonably affordable, spent extra time with us before and after the wedding which he didn't have to do to make sure the lighting was good and we had good locations. We had an airbnb wedding so everything was up to us and he was really helpful in giving us advice for what photos would look good while being open to our own ideas. Obviously the photos turned out as good as promised. Also a nice person who clearly loves what he does. What else can you ask for?

    Dean MacKay Photography's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words, Zach! I really enjoyed your celebration and spending time with you, Jinjoo, your friends and family. Thank you, again, for your trust in me.

I first started exploring photography while working in the music video business, and living in New York. When I made the move West, I brought my passion and inspiration along with me. After agreeing to photograph a friend’s wedding in 2010, I haven't looked back.

I enjoy long hikes in Yosemite and strolls around New York City. I savor the desert sunrises, and marvel at the stars. I cherish my time in Maine, with the boys I cared for. I look forward to visits from out-of-town friends. And, my favorite past times is watching the birds, bunnies, and squirrels right outside my window.
