Welcome to the fun and exciting world of Dempag!

You’ve started your journey into planning a wedding. Take a breath and hold on as the amount of vendors and information you will come across is practically endless. I honestly have no idea how couples choose who to work with as there are so many very talented individuals out there to pick from. But I will say this…taking great photos really is the easiest part of the day. Whether setting up scenes, capturing the moment, arranging families, chasing sunsets…those things are easy as any worthy pro knows how to do that.

So, what makes Dempag different? Well for one, we are typically putting your entire day together. Starting with photos and/or video, music for the ceremony, and helping create a reception so awesome that your guests leave at the end going, “Wow! Now that was FUN!”

You see, Dempag was first started as a DJ company long ago but then one day (14 years ago), I started taking photos and fell in love with creating images that told such fascinating stories and were timeless pieces of art that couples could cherish forever.

Today Dempag is all about creating weddings that are just not the same as your typical wedding. My experience is so vast that I can spot a problem and fix it before it happens. Things run late, someone got drunk, families are scattered…so many things can happen when you bring everyone together for a wedding and it takes someone who you trust to have your back at all times.

Prior to the wedding, we go over every detail. Photography timeline, important photos you want done, who is in family photos (yes, we go through this as most family doesn’t really like photo time so we stay very efficient and get through it quickly so that everyone can get back to the fun). We go through all music, songs you like, songs you hate and don’t want played and the “feel” you want for your reception. Nothing is left out.

Don’t let the stress of wedding planning overwhelm you. I am always available for my clients and a wealth of information when it comes to weddings. Ask any questions you have.

Photography, Video, DJ, Photo Booths, we take care of it all.

    Picture Perfect Company

    I simply can't say enough good things about Yale! My husband and I made the difficult decision to postpone our larger wedding due to COVID but still wanted to tie the knot in a smaller ceremony with just the two of us. We were looking at scenic places in/near Duluth, MN where we could capture some great shots and knew we needed a phenomenal photographer to capture the day. We stumbled across Yale's page and fell in love with his photos and artistic style - he ended up being everything we could have wanted in a photographer and more! He was extremely prompt with communication and chatted with us prior to the big day to get an idea of what we were looking for and how we wanted the day to go. We ended up traveling the Lake Superior shoreline in his party bus, stopping to take photos in various locations. He was always open to our ideas and even had some crazy ones of his own - including standing on cliffs and braving the frigid Lake Superior water with us to get the perfect shot. His attention to detail coupled with his easygoing personality made for an amazing day that we will always remember with photos we will cherish for a lifetime. While it wasn't what we had originally planned, Yale made our day everything we could have dreamed of and more. If I could book him again for our postponed wedding, I'd do it in a heartbeat!

    Great quality & price!

    Yale and his team made planning our wedding reception easy. Instead of having to hire separate photographers, MC, and DJ, we only had to coordinate with Yale and we knew we were in good hands. The photos we have seen so far turned out amazing and were a perfect mix of staged and candid.

Hi Everyone! I love weddings, everything about them. The laughter, tears, joy, drama even the chaos at times. No two weddings are the same and I love shaping and guiding the day to make sure everyone has an amazing experience.

When I'm not hanging from cliffs or sitting in a creek to get that perfect photo I'm STILL spending my time hanging (or jumping) from cliffs and in the water having fun. I travel every chance I can get and love meeting new people and exploring every part of the world.

Life is a journey meant to be lived with passion and it's that passion that I put into every single wedding.
