The Girls behind DePoy Studios
We are Cristina and Deloris, owners and photographers of DePoy Studios. DePoy Studios is a Chandler, Phoenix, Sedona, Mesa, Gilbert, and Flagstaff, Arizona based wedding photography company.
I started my photography journey in college with a background in Fine Art Photography and Business. My first class was black and white film photography. I always had a love for the art of writing with light, but did not start college to be a wedding photographer. Life just ended up this way, and I love every minute of it!
I have been photographing weddings for over 5 years now, and am still Madly in love with every wedding!! I love the controlled chaos of the wedding day.
The whole wedding industry keeps me on my toes, and is a huge part of my life. As a hopeless romantic, I get engulfed with my couples’ love stories! There is nothing more thrilling than being a huge part of someone’s wedding day.
My personal life in a nutshell: Hopeless romantic, traveler, gamer, outgoing, adventurous, love my friends and family, love dancing the night away, and I try to live and love fearlessly!
I was born in Casa Grande, AZ and raised in Chandler, AZ. I have always loved the outdoors and spent much of my childhood camping and thinking the desert was my playground. To me photos are like the diary of your life. Photos can tell about your day-to-day life, as well as the special events. As children we love to hear about the story of our parents and when they showed us a photo, well, that just makes the story more real.
Alaska is one of my favorite states; it is truly the last frontier. I love spending time there photographing brown bears and eagles. I’ve also been known to chase the Northern Lights. I’ve enjoyed traveling and seeing so much of the world with my husband, Carl. He has been my best friend for over 45 years.
Building Long Lasting Relationships Of All Kinds
Building a long lasting relationship with our couples is at the heart of our business. Wedding photography really has to do with the connection of the couple and their photographer. Without the right connection with your wedding photographer your images could become lifeless and boring! Your wedding photos are going to be around long after you are gone and we want you to have the best, so that is why we push the limits with our couples to insure they have art work that will last lifetimes. How cool will it be to know your grandchildren can look at your wedding album and love every image?!
Our passion is love of ALL kinds! We are proud to work with all couples. We really want to be a part of our couples’ love stories and capture the raw emotion of their wedding. This is why we get to know our couples, who they are, how they met, and what they love in life!
Our Unique Approach
An engagement session with DePoy Studios is unique to each couple; we are not your run of the mill photography studio. We want to know what makes you tick and what your family and friends know you for. If that is a special movie, let’s have some fun with a themed shoot! If it’s a destination location, take us there! DePoy Studios really wants to know who you are and help tell your love story for years to come.
Love Is Love
To get an idea of whom DePoy Studios’ couples are, they are couples from all walks of life that value photography and view it as one of the most important elements of their wedding day. They are madly in love with each other and cherish the amazing moments that we capture with our cameras! Couples who laugh at themselves, stand out from the crowed, live out loud, and know how to have a good time. If you say they are unique, you are right on track! They tend to be loud at times, have HUGE hearts, and become our friends by their wedding day.
We can’t wait to tell your love story! It’s your legacy after all. What will you leave behind?!?!
