This is a Canon Explorer of Light event and is open to all working and aspiring wedding photographers.
Reggie was the first wedding photographer recognized by leading camera maker Canon to be a part of its prestigious Explorers of Light program. He was also first to be named to the elite team of top photographers in the world as an Icon of Imaging by Microsoft. Reggie is sponsored by, and featured on websites of, both companies. He has advised several top websites including Pictage and The Knot and acknowledged on numerous other websites for contributions to wedding photography.
Of 1,800-plus wedding assignments, only a limited number have been for high-profile celebrity clients. In fact, over 99 percent of Reggie wedding images are ultimately destined for couples’ wedding albums, not magazines. Denis Reggie caters to brides and grooms without consideration of any résumé: bookings are simply accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for couples from every walk of life. Being chosen as event historian is an honor reflected in the spirit of the service provided to every Reggie bride. His staff is unusually experienced and sensitive in handling the details and nuances of wedding planning with Southern graciousness, warmth, and cordiality. Each is genuinely interested in – and conversant with – the nature of nuptial events, on call to respond with utmost discretion. Coverage is available worldwide.
Hailed by Town & Country as “the great wedding photographer of our day” and by Oprah Winfrey as “the best in the business,” Denis Reggie and his impact on wedding photography have become legend. Sensing the frustration of many brides with the posed look of traditional and pseudo-fashion wedding photography, he set out in the early 1980’s to refine and popularize the truly natural, editorial style he termed “wedding photojournalism.” The wedding photography industry has never been the same.
In the American PHOTO cover feature naming “The 10 Best Wedding Photographers in the World,” Denis Reggie was listed first.
At the request of the Smithsonian Institute, several Reggie photographs will become part of the permanent collection of the National Museum of American History in Washington.
His images have been featured on the cover of LIFE, and named in “Photographs of the Year” by People, LIFE, People, and Newsweek among other publications. He has been interviewed at various times as a guest on NBC’s Today show as well as Oprah! A Denis Reggie photograph of Oprah Winfrey and Jackie Onassis was featured on a program highlighting “Oprah’s favorite things.”
He has been featured on Entertainment Tonight, VH-1, E! Entertainment Television, CNN, and Fox in national broadcasts. He has also been the subject of feature stories in each of the major wedding and photography magazines, and in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and numerous other publications. His photographs are frequently used in books on weddings, etiquette, and photography including titles by Vera Wang, Letitia Baldridge and Town & Country.
