Doug and Katherine, thank you so much for everything these past several months! From the engagement shoot, to our wedding day, we are beyond grateful not just for your incredible artistry and craft, but equally your kindness and creativity. Every step of the way we loved having you by our side. Anyone who has the pleasure to work with you is better for it, and we can't wait to have more of our life captured through your lens.

Where to begin.... Doug beautifully captured the most incredible days of my life (engagement and celebration). It was like living my best imaginable dream, and I'm so grateful that he was there to capture it. ☺️
We will truly cherish our photos for the rest of our lives. Doug puts his heart into his work, and he was really gracious in getting teaser photos to us quickly- we had an incredible time sharing with family and friends. Doug is so talented and beyond that, also an incredible human.

Being a wedding designer with over 4,000 weddings and special events that I am credited for, I have had the opportunity to work with some of the best photographers in the country. Douglas is in my top 5 of those photographers who have an artistic yet romantic and sentimental side that gets the emotion and the "real love story" of the couple, the family, the dear friends and those that make up the heart of a wedding. Douglas creates the most meaningful portraits that will live on not only through your lifetime but your children's children. If you are fortunate enough to know him as a person and have him celebrate your wedding as well, then you will have an experience you will never forget.

This is such a wonderful company to work with. We highly recommend.
Doug and Katherine were amazing to work with! Amazing photographers who are great team-players! :) Can't wait to partner up again!
We had the pleasure of working with Douglas Despres this summer at a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Boston (at the New England Aquarium). He was nothing short of wonderful to work with. He very also very gracious to provide a photo to us for the DVD disc and cover for the couple's wedding DVD. I would not hesitate to recommend Douglas Despres to any bride in either of the states he works out of (California and Mass.)
