Denise Vasquez Photography

Editorial, LifeStyle & PORTRAIT Travel Photographer

First impressions are everlasting, and so are the moments captured in a photograph!

Hi, I am Denise Vasquez

Licensed Photographer, Editor and CEO of PROMOTE Magazine, serving Las Vegas, Henderson, Nevada and beyond!

If you're looking for a creative professional artist & photographer that will focus on the best in you, while helping your story shine, you've come to the right place!

My style combines editorial, portrait and lifestyle photography. I believe the best memories are the real ones & when it comes to collaborating with my clients, my goal is to help you have a fun, stress free experience, while preserving real moments that will live on in every image.

My experience working as a professional photographer spans over 10 years from working as a freelance photographer, to working for vendors at Universal Studios in Hollywood, and at The San Diego Zoo, and my experience working in the entertainment industry professionally both in front of and behind the camera spans over 40 years.

I love capturing colorful moments as they occur, shooting on location in different environments, especially outdoors with natural light.

The best way to get a feel for my style and to see if it suits your needs, is to take your time exploring the pages on this site. As you browse through the site, you'll discover some of my favorite editorial and portrait experiences, that includes some of my work that has been published in PROMOTE Magazine.

If you're interested in doing an editorial or portrait experience, whether it's to get published, branding, creating new content, capturing memories, building your portfolio, or for your special occasion, elopement, engagement, doing a destination experience, and would like me to come to you, I love to travel & I am available to discuss your making your dream portrait experience a reality!

I left my home in New York City when I was 17, and have been traveling since living in Scotland, London, USVI, California, and Nevada. Why do I love traveling? Because it connects me to people, places, and cultures, gives me new experiences, unique perspectives, and inspires me to show the beauty in the world through my lens.

I am physically disabled and so have many limitations that Denise understood and showed nothing but compassion for.
