Laid back, unique, and kind is Ciesther, Mendell, and Lester's, the fabulous family trio behind DCPG Photography, most favorite kind of engaged couple! It's no wonder because these photographers are known as pretty rad "strobists"... meaning they are known for being able to creatively light any situation or time of day to create romantic and dramatic portraits.
They are a family business in the literal sense (partners Ciesther and Mendell are married and Lester is Mendell's brother)! So with the fam thing going for them, they proudly tote that they are one of the few teams in Hampton Roads that offers three primary photographers on a wedding day (as opposed to a marquee photographer and an associate).
While this trio loves dramatically-lit portraits, candid shots are just as important. It's why collectively their favorite wedding day moments are the first dance and parent dances. There is such a huge range of moments and expressions to photograph. This special reception tradition always starts out lighthearted and laughing and eventually becomes filled with sentimental emotion, then tears and hugs ensue.
When Ciester, Mendell, and Lester aren't making photo magic, they love trying new and familiar restaurants in the area like Alkaline, Hearth, Sweet Art Cupcakes, Commune, Handsome Biscuit, Toast, Cure Coffeehouse, the various food trucks -- their list goes on! Mendell and Lester are also plane and car guys, so you can find them going to all the military air shows, the monthly Cars and Coffee meet, and the occasional AutoCross competition. When not watching jets fly by or eating their way through Hampton Roads, they also love taking their kids to the parks and beaches.
