About LOV - LOV Portrait Design

LOV Portrait Design

LOV is Life On View, which is our way of viewing the art and skill of great photography. We capture moments in time, samples of your life, and preserve and present them in all their glory.

A really  good photographer can sometimes take those moments and imbue them with a sense of the feelings surrounding that time, and create a picture that lets one experience the emotional gestalt of that instantaneous time capsule. A great picture can be even better than we remember.

That  is what we aspire to, to make you and yours look as great as possible.

My name is Dene, which is pronounced the same as “Dean”, and above are my wife and I in the photo. My wife Vivien and I are the imagery artists who have created LOV Portrait Design in Orange County, California. We believe our experience, honesty, and artistic vision and craftsmanship will make you a believer. Drop us a line, and we can put together a collection customized for what you need, and optimized for your budget. If you have questions, we’ll take the time to explain and come to a meeting of the minds.


You may have noticed that we've changed our branding. As of March 3, 2019, we've rebranded our business to: LOV Portrait Design


Previously, we weren't consistant; using LOV Photography  on our website here and also on Instagram, but spelling out the acronym and using: Life On View Photography for Facebook. We now have a unified and forward looking branding strategy with LOV Portrait Design
There are still a few pieces (like domain names) that haven't been brought into the fold yet, but it's all coming together.
