About Us


Meet Dennis

Hi! I’m Dennis. I’m dedicated to giving you photographs that celebrate your special occasion, make your parents proud and your friends jealous. Dennis Tan Creative allows me to capture cherished moments on film. I to do this with the goal of transporting you back to that exact moment each time you see the image. My approach is unobtrusive and friendly, gently guiding you to the right position to produce unique, beautiful moments – without strict styling or restrictive staged poses. I love the play of light through dappled trees and the stark shadows created by architectural spaces. My goal is to provide my couples with creative photography that matches the vision you have of your wedding day. I’m passionate, down to earth, easy going and trustworthy. I work hard to create a style of photography that puts your story first and allows me to capture your environment, your love, your emotion, and the people you cherish on the most important day of your life. The Dennis Tan Creative logo is my name 丰 in Chinese, and it means ‘abundant’.
