Glen Cooper, award-winning photographer, is the creative vision behind DMPJ’s wedding photography. For more than 15 years, Glen has developed a broad range of experience as a photojournalist. He has been named an International Award-Winning Photographer by the Wedding Photojournalist Association and has received accolades from the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers. A storyteller at heart, Glen considers wedding photography an opportunity to tell one of the most important stories of a couple’s life.

“This isn’t just a job for us. Our World is full of visual imagery—just ask our two little girls who’s young lives are so well documented on an almost daily basis. Whether I’m staying late working an after-party for a sweet shot of my clients playing pool in full wedding attire or simply scouting out a location prior to the big day, I’m always shooting. This is as important to me as it is to you. We want beautiful, telling images from your wedding day maybe even more so than you do, and we know that this takes dedication above and beyond the norm. Your wedding day is one of the most important and exciting moments in your lives thus far and so we will treat it the same. “ Glen Cooper

Real. Beautiful. Creative. Fun.

We hired Glen to shoot our engagement and wedding pictures. The first meeting was great and he explained everything to us and answered countless questions I had. He was extremely nice and professional and even answered numerous questions I emailed him after our initial meeting. Our wedding is next April however we just took our engagement pictures. We went to countless locations and took tons of shots he never rushed us which I really appreciated and made us feel like he had all the time in the world for us. His assistant was great as well and made us very relaxed and comfortable. The results were amazing! I couldn't ask for better pictures and I typically hate pictures of myself. I'm thrilled to use these for our save the dates. Glen is super responsive and attentive. We couldn't have asked for a better final result and I can't wait to take the pictures on the day of our wedding because I know they will be awesome!

Our photos turned out amazing! Glen was great to work with. From the beginning we worked with us to prepare a quote that was within our budget, we had a few phone calls to review our plans and what we wanted in which he provided his own ideas based on his familiarity with our location. Finally, the day of, it was much hotter than anticipated (the wedding was all outside), and he adapted quickly to get great pictures while keeping everyone comfortable. We would definitely recommend Glen to any couples looking for a great photographer!

Choosing the right photographer for our wedding was one of the toughest decisions for me – I’m a total photo geek, and I knew I wanted someone with a creative eye that could not only make the formal portraits fun and interesting, but also capture all the candid moments throughout the night. My husband, Eric, on the other hand hates having his picture taken and is convinced he’s not photogenic. Ladies – sound familiar? I knew I had to find someone that he was comfortable working with.

I looked at tons of portfolios and reviews online, but when I saw Glen’s work I knew in my gut he was the one. We set up a meeting at our home so he could show us some more of his work and so we could get to know each other - we totally hit it off right away. And on the night of the wedding, Eric was completely un-phased by having to pose for all the photos, and we both barely even noticed Glen was there the rest of the night. But our friends let us know he was right in the middle of all the action – laying on the dance floor, standing on chairs, anything to capture unique and creative shots.

So here’s what I’ll say to couples searching for the right wedding photographer… if you want someone who’s fun to work with, and won’t make you feel like he’s up in your grill while you’re dancing with your new spouse, can creatively frame images with unique angles and backgrounds, and is simply not your standard run-of-the-mill portrait photographer, then Glen is the guy for you. He is extremely talented and clearly loves what he does.

I haven’t seen my photos yet, but I have no doubt they’re going to turn out amazing. Glen and his assistant must have taken thousands of photos, and I can tell he’s a perfectionist and is going to take the time to sift through every single one of them in order to find the best shots for our album. I cannot wait to see the story of our wedding through Glen’s eyes.

Many thanks, Glen!
Kristen & Eric

Glen was everything we were looking for in a photographer. Amazingly talented, professional, responsive and just plain fun to be around.

We met with close to a dozen people before meeting Glen. We met at least three that seemed perfect and most likely would have been happy with any of them. But I have to say when we met Glen, saw his work and discussed our plans we had zero doubt that he was the one. We were kind of blown away at how easy the decision was to go with him and called him about ten minutes after the meeting to lock in the details.

The engagement and wedding day came and went without any stress or worry about Glen. We knew he would get the job done and the peace of mind was worth twice what we paid, not to mention the amazing photos he took.

Glen was absolutely wonderful to work with and his photos could not be more beautiful. We wanted a photojournalist who would document our entire night, rather than focusing on formal photos. The gorgeous wedding and travel photos on Glen's website convinced us that he would do a beautiful job! We had fun getting to know him through an initial meeting and an engagement shoot. Glen was great at putting us at ease so that we quickly forgot we were in front of a camera. We talked again before our wedding and Glen (plus a second photographer) arrived right on time and ready to go on the wedding day. Throughout the wedding day and night, Glen was professional, fun, and efficient - every time I had the thought that I'd like a picture of something, there he was, already taking it!

We just got our photos back and they are absolutely beautiful. He did a wonderful job of capturing all of the little moments of the day, the fun, and the emotions. Looking at these photos is like reliving our wedding day all over again and we couldn't be happier :)

Two things:
1. Glen Cooper (and the other photographers that work with him) REALLY knows what he's doing.
2. He shoots *interesting* photos, not just good ones. They are really works of art.

The pictures of our wedding capture the spirits of so many of our favorite people - and the energy of the day. Real treasures.

We are still so bowled over by how beautiful the photos are -- the summer light, the flowers, the paella, and all the happy people look wonderful -- and by how well they capture the emotions of the day and the personalities and relationships of everyone there. Looking at them really does feel a bit like re-living our wedding. Nate and Glen absolutely understood what was important to us. They were also so good at putting everyone at ease - we and our guests rarely even noticed we were being photographed! We have been enjoying looking through them and showing them to our family and friends so much, and we're looking forward to putting together an album. It is going to be a little painful to pick a few favorites though - there are so many perfect vignettes of the day!

If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would.

Right from the start, Asha and Glen were so easy and fun to work with. Asha always answered my questions so quickly and was always cheerful and eager to help. I had no idea what I wanted from my photography package and she helped me sort that out.

We did our engagement shoot with Glen and we ended up with some fabulous photos to display at the shower and the wedding. We had Chris and Natasha as our photographers for the wedding. We got a chance to meet with Chris a couple months before the wedding so we could make a schedule and talk about what kind of photos we wanted. At the wedding, everyone in our bridal party loved Chris and Natasha and had a blast with them, but at the same time, we didn't feel their presence as they took photos. They were able to blend in with the crowd or stay on the sidelines but still get fabulous shots.

My husband and I are a bit nervous around the camera and didn't really know how to pose, but at both the engagement shoot and the wedding, each photographer was able to help us look natural and also capture some great candids.

At first, I thought DMPJ was out of my budget and I tried to find another photographer. I couldn't find anyone whose pictures moved me as much as the ones I saw on the DMPJ website, so I decided to book DMPJ. They are truly a group of gifted professionals. I absolutely do not regret choosing to go over my budget on the photography because we are so happy with what we got. When I looked through my online album for the first time, the photos brought back all the emotions I felt that day and I could even hear what songs were playing at the time. We've received lots of compliments on our photos and I find myself looking through the online album again once a week! I can’t wait to choose our prints and see our album come together.

The people at DMPJ really went out of their way on a number of occasions to make me feel they valued us as clients. There were a few things that happened that I was disappointed about and they did everything they could to accommodate me. These things were mainly my oversights, but they really tried their best to help!

They're a fun company, with lots of neat surprises along the way, and are passionate about all sorts of photography. I have really enjoyed working with them.

One tip - I had asked to make sure they got pictures of my elderly, visiting-from-faraway uncle, and the only two I got was because I was standing with him when one of the photographers walked by and I asked. Unfortunately, I don't really like the pictures and they are the only two I have. So, be vigilant about communicating the pictures that you want taken.
