About Me

DINA DOUGLASS - ANDRENA PHOTOGRAPHY

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER SERVING LOS ANGELES, ORANGE COUNTY and DESTINATIONS AROUND THE WORLD

One of the Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World - American Photo Magazine

You could say I grew up in the darkroom because I actually did. After buying my first camera (a Canon AE-1), I spent most of my teens photographing anything that moved, then hand-processing my film and making my own prints. Things have changed a lot since then, and I am no longer surrounded by enlargers nor bathed in red light as I work on images. But I still get excited by each and every moment I capture, and I still love the idea of making each image the best that it can be. 

Since starting my photography studio, I've shot weddings in 11 countries and had my images published all over the world. American Photo Magazine included me on its list of Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World, and I've spoken at photography conferences in Beijing, Moscow, New York, Las Vegas, New Orleans and numerous other cities. I am a three-time judge at the Wedding & Portrait International (WPPI) Annual Print Competition. And I've even been featured on the cover of Popular Photography Magazine. 

Still, nothing makes me happier than creating beautiful images that make people happy. 

Beyond photography, the things I love include ice cream, English Breakfast tea, finding typos in magazines, my parents, Chef's Table on Netflix, learning about different ways of life and making people feel appreciated.

If you've read this far and you enjoy my work, I truly hope to have the chance to work with you. I also hope that when you drop me a line, you'll tell me about a few things you love, too.
