We are Ciesther, Mendell & Lester dela Cruz aka DCPG. We photograph newborn, baby, children, and lifestyle family portraits throughout all of Hampton Roads (Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Suffolk) and beyond. We have a relaxed, modern approach to photography that really makes your love shine.

We also photograph elopements, destination and intimate weddings worldwide - our weddings have been featured on Aisle Society, the Knot, Borrowed & Blue, Tidewater & Tulle, Munaluchi Bride, Boho Weddings, and Modern Hawaii Weddings.

DCPG also photographs commercial imagery for local business owners and creatives! We would love to be your personal brand photographer and create gorgeous headshots, product photography, and social media content for you.

We have been bringing our creative brains, camera magic, and hearty laughs to Virginia and beyond since 2005. We’re fueled by coffee, local eateries, YouTube videos and hugs.
