life is like a camera

focus on what’s important

if it doesn’t work out, take another shot

Whenever I have a camera with me, I’m more focused. I see the beauty of an average place, the majesty in an average person – I even create moments I want to capture! We can easily miss the wonder of the world or forget life’s experiences if we don’t gather them in stories or photos.


As a professional photographer, I capture milestones for families and individuals and help organizations and entrepreneurs showcase what they do. I love to share my experiences and what I’ve been up to. I’m so glad you’re here! 


Hello! I’m Deniane (pronounced Denny-Ann) Kartchner, an event, portrait, and commercial photographer happy to be based out of historic Ogden, Utah. (I love the romanticism of the railroad and the power found in  “pioneer” living in the middle of a metropolis!) I guess you could say I’m a “time-travel photographer” – I love to bring history to life in vibrant color or turn back time through classic black-and-whites. In my spare time, I’m happy jammin’ on my wash tub bass with my husband Lorin and the Utah Old Time Fiddlers, and having fun with our four grown kids, their spouses, and our first grand baby. 

Whether we’ve just met, or you’ve known me forever and are just now discovering my secret identity as a photographer, I’m so glad you’re here! Read on to see if we are the perfect fit for your next project!

ky & kannah


Ky & Hannah, our son and daughter-in-law. I remember when they were first dating, they jokingly said their “couple name” was Kyannah. Would they, will they, name a little girl this name? I guess we won’t know for awhile, since they are having a boy, and his name is … Ryker.
