I'M chaquana denise! mom of three, PHOTOGRAPHER, AND FRIEND

welcome, sweet friends!

I'm so so grateful that you're here! 
I'm Chaquana Denise often referred to as CJ or Denise, it's just so much easier to pronounce! Wouldn't you agree? I'm a Portrait and Wedding photographer based out of Raleigh, North Carolina whole heartily serving ALL of North Carolina and available to travel worldwide. 
My passion for photographing families and weddings comes from my very own marriage and family.
I believe love, family and genuine friendships are amongst life's greatest blessings! 
When I'm not photographing a wedding or a sweet family I'm at TARGET or obsessely over stuffing myself at Chick-fil-a! Number three please! 
I can't wait to capture your memories!
