“In those pictures he saw every feeling and experience of Wesley’s life – every laugh, every tear, every disappointment, and every triumph. Everything that has made him who he is and who he will be.
You made him feel confident. You talked with him man to man and artist to artist. You saw in him all of the qualities that make us so proud of him. And your creativity is amazing! I’m blown away how you can make a kid with a French horn look so debonair and sophisticated. “
I stopped looking at photographers for my son’s senior pictures once I found your website. Yes, all of the pictures are wonderful, but it was the incredible images of the young men that sold me. From the moment children are born, girls’ pictures tend to steal the show. Most photographers seem to struggle with taking pictures of boys that aren’t boring, corny, or unimaginative. The images I found on your website were creative, dynamic, and masculine.
The photo session was so much fun for our family. I can’t thank you enough for the way you treated us and Wesley. You made him feel confident. You talked with him man to man and artist to artist. You saw in him all of the qualities that make us so proud of him. And your creativity is amazing! I’m blown away how you can make a kid with a French horn look so debonair and sophisticated.
Also, from a business standpoint, we are extremely pleased with your professionalism. Our books, prints, and canvases arrived timely and safely to our doorstep. They were well packaged and protected from weather. You delivered on all of your promises, and the products are the highest quality.
My breath was taken away during Wesley’s slide show at your studio. We’re still not over it. It was a visual procession of our son’s mind, soul, body, and spirit. At some point after Wesley’s slide show, when we were picking out our prints, my husband stopped talking. He clammed up and wouldn’t offer an opinion. I was so concerned that he was unhappy with the pictures or that he didn’t think it was worth it to spend the money (my husband didn’t even understand the concept of “senior pictures” before we arrived at your studio). He told me on the way home, though, that he was so full of emotion, he couldn’t speak. In those pictures he saw every feeling and experience of Wesley’s life – every laugh, every tear, every disappointment, and every triumph. Everything that has made him who he is and who he will be.
Most young people look in the mirror and focus on their flaws. Sadly, they often don’t want their picture taken, or they take hundreds of selfies desperately trying to control how others see them. You, George, have a gift, and your portraits show that everyone is beautiful. Honestly, everyone. Parents already know this, but you show it to the world. You show that there are no flaws, nothing that needs to be hidden – just truly beautiful uniqueness. I know from looking at some of Wesley’s shots on your camera during his session that this is not a trick of photo editing. It is art and vocation. You have brought forth in print what parents see in their children, indeed how the One who made them must see them.
Thank you, thank you for blessing us and capturing our son at this point in his life, as a young man whose story is about to be written.
George’s Response: I am blown away by the depth of your words. It gave me chills all over my body. This is my goal and passion for every session. It means the world to me you put this into a letter to me. Thank you. I am humbled.
“My anxiety and expectations were soothed by George’s fun loving attitude and professional knowledge. “
Walking into my senior photo session I was surprised to see my photographer wearing camo. I soon realized that this was all apart of George’s phenomenal dedication to creating the best photos for me. George captured breath-taking images while rolling around outside, finding angles and lighting that captured my face and demeanor.
As a professed art snob I had high expectations for my senior photos. Well, I was shocked to see how stunning the photos George Dean had created with his iconic touch!
My anxiety and expectations were soothed by George’s fun loving attitude and professional knowledge.
Sometimes senior photos can seem stereotypical and uncomfortable, however, George Dean has broken the mold and created images that reflect myself and are utterly un-replicable.
I am so thankful that I got to have George’s technique and artistic vision to create something that is undeniably me.
Thank you so much for making my senior year beautiful!

George’s Response: Madison, girl we had a blast. The artistic interpretation of your unique style just flowed. What a blast. We SO have to shoot again. Thanks for being awesome. I wish you best success in life.
“George, the way you use your lighting and the backgrounds you choose adds to the story each photograph tells without words.”
George, First we would like to thank you for an amazing experience with Tanner’s senior photo session! He isn’t one to want his picture taken but you got him to relax and have fun with it.
He ended up being so proud of his photos that he shared them with all of his friends.
George, I discovered your photography years ago when a friend of ours told me about the slide show on your website. I can’t tell you how many times I watched it. Every time I felt emotionally moved by the way you are able to capture the unguarded and innocent beauty of each individual you photograph.
The way you use your lighting and the backgrounds you choose adds to the story each photograph tells without words.
So we wanted you to tell some of Tanner’s Stories. He has so many and you found a lot of them.
We waited almost 5 years to have a senior session with you!
We will cherish the experience and every single photograph forever! Thank you George!

George’s Response: WOW…. Thanks so much Lynn. Photographing young men can be a challenge. It was a pleasure showing the real Tanner in his images. Can’t wait to photograph the entire family soon!
“George is more than just a talented photographer … he is an artist. He has amazing people skills that make you feel like you’re having a photo session with your best friend.”
I am a senior at Plano Senior High School in Plano Texas. My senior picture experience was so unexpected! Being shy and quiet I didn’t think my session would be as wonderful and exciting as it turned out to be. George instantly put me at ease and made me excited to get started! He met me at my car ready to go and helping me bring everything inside. I felt swept away by his amazing attitude and excitement. I was charged from the moment we started my photo shoot. I felt like I didn’t even need to see the pictures to know they were going to be amazing! Originally I thought I had brought way too much clothes but was instantly reassured that I probably didn’t bring enough! George has a true gift for picking outfits that shows who I really am while still accentuating my best features! You can tell from the way he changes the lighting, adjusting poses and fixes your hands that he strives to get the perfect picture, the way that you would love and exactly the way he’s envisioning it. He is more than just a talented photographer he is an artist. He has amazing people skills that make you feel like you’re having a photo session with your best friend you’re excited to take the pictures and you’re happy and laughing the whole time it’s truly an amazing experience. George, I can’t wait to have you photograph my wedding one day! Tia Szczesniak Plano Senior High School Plano, Texas George’s Response: Tia, I just love you! Thanks. The session was crazy fun. And YES, I do strive for perfection – it is a gift and a curse! lol 🙂 Yes, you BETTER book me for your wedding (in 10 years!) or I am going to show up anyway! 🙂Tia Szczesniak
“I appreciate your willingness to embrace individuality. For some of the Seniors, I ‘m sure it’s a much needed break in all the stress surrounding them at this time in their lives. Spending a couple of hours with someone who is asking about their likes/dislikes, complimenting them and basically reminding them there is no “wrong way” to just be themselves has to be refreshing!”
“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things,
but their inward significance.” Aristotle
Please know that the delay in my sending you a note, expressing my appreciation for your amazing work, is due to my inability to come up with words that accurately express my heart. I realized the reason the words could not be found was because Aristotle had already used them!
Your gift is undeniable! Your knowledge of lighting is impeccable.
You and I both know, lighting can be the difference in a good photograph and a great photograph! I love your heart for what you do. You really do take an interest in every person you photograph. It blesses me that you remember little things about each photograph AND the person in it! At the time, you had no idea that I actually knew the majority of the people I asked you about. Your genuine interest and admiration was apparent .

My only concern with his Senior photo session was Jacobs ability to disengage in a situation,when/if he loses interest. (Pretending to be “present” in a situation is not one of the gifts that God has given to Jacob) You will never fully understand how happy it made me to see the photographs. You were able to capture the core of who Jacob truly is. Who he is at this moment, who he has always been and who he is destined to be!
So many people have said the photographs are true works of art. My husband and I agree. The saying “you get what you pay for” is surely accurate when referring to professional photography. Sometimes you pay for much better than you actually get in the end! The quality of experience you provide along with the quality of product is worth the cost. In a society where no one actually prints photographs anymore, having not just a photograph, but a work of art hanging in your home is priceless! I always tell my kids that if there is ever an emergency in our home, grab the photographs because everything else is replaceable!
Thank you for using the gift God has given you to bless me.
George’s Response: Tracey, as a former Ms Texas, you indeed appreciate beautiful ‘lighting’. Thank you for loving my photographic artwork so much. It means the world to me – truly. I know will do it again and can’t wait.
“Even after looking through your website, I was still convinced that I would never take a picture that looked as good as those on your website and I would never be as pretty as all the other girls you’ve photographed.
All of my pictures turned out so much more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. You are such an artist and I couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of your work.
I want to thank you so much for proving me wrong by making me feel so beautiful.”
“I had such an amazing experience with you!
All of my pictures turned out so much more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.
You are such an artist and I couldn’t be more pleased with the quality of your work.
I have to admit I was feeling a little discouraged going into the session because of a previous photo shoot I did with another studio. After looking at the pictures that studio took of me, I was very convinced that I was the reason not a single one of them turned out good. I was literally in tears because I thought every picture taken of me would turn out like those did. They were poor quality and the shadows on my face made me look very unattractive.
Even after looking through your website I was still convinced that I would never take a picture that looked as good as those and I would never be as pretty as all the other girls you’ve photographed.
I want to thank you so much for proving me wrong by making me feel so beautiful and helping me realize that I wasn’t the problem.
You have made such a positive influence on me and helped me feel better about myself. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to help capture my senior year. I had so much fun during my session with you and I will definitely be coming back for more!
(Honestly, I would be scared to get pictures done by anyone else)
Thank you so much again, YOU ARE AMAZING

George’s Response: You just put tears in my eyes. As an artist, it is my passion to reveal the hidden the beauty I see in my clients. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to show you Morgan. HUGS!
“You were able to capture his best qualities, and essential nature, in a photograph; that can only be accomplished by someone with truly amazing talent.
Everyone who has seen his pictures has told us Alex should be a model, but that is simply the magic you’re able to create”.
“The way you chose my clothes, the background and lighting for each photograph was amazing – your insight and talent are truly a gift! “
Letter from Alex’s Mom, Linda
From the moment I saw your work, I couldn’t imagine anyone else taking Alex’s senior pictures – something that important could only be trusted to the very best and that is what you are. Although I must admit I wasn’t sure what to expect when we arrived for his appointment, your professionalism and kindness immediately put us at ease. You made my son feel very special, and it shows in every one of the photographs you took.
I find it amazing that you were able to capture his best qualities, and essential nature, in a photograph; that can only be accomplished by someone with truly amazing talent. Everyone who has seen his pictures has told us Alex should be a model, but that is simply the magic you’re able to create.
Thank you so much for the memories of this wonderful moment in his life.

Letter from Alex
Speechless….. is what I was when I saw myself in your pictures;
Unbelievably impressed…… because you capture images in a way that I never thought was possible;
I couldn’t help but stare in amazement at the photographs you took;
I couldn’t help but smile because I was so happy with them.
The way you chose my clothes, the background and lighting for each photograph was amazing – your insight and talent are truly a gift!
The whole experience was fun and I found that the time I spent in your studio passed much too quickly.
Thank you so much for everything!

George’s Response: Your kind words and eloquent observations make me smile and touches my heart. I can’t wait to do it again one day with your family portraits. Thanks Linda!
“George captured both the soft and edgy sides of me, and brought out the best of my personality. He captured the bold statement of a look without the smile. The feeling that day is something I will never forget.
It was a day that I did not want to end. I am so appreciative of the time George spent to make me feel so special.”
Letter from Nicole
“George is truly a professional, creator and a friend.
Going into my photo session, I was timid, reluctant and had reservations about doing the shoot. Once George selected my first outfit and had me dress in a sweater backwards, I knew that this was going to be an experience of a lifetime.

Letter from Nicole’s Mother
I just wanted to thank you for such an incredible experience. I had saved an ad of yours from 2012, and booked with you having absolutely no idea what to expect.
From beginning to end, you made us feel like we were your only client.
The presentation of the photos was breathtaking, the music carefully selected.
Your personalized note and beautiful brownies, and your door to door delivery of the photos was more than anyone could ask for.
It was the added touches that made us feel so much more than just your everyday client.
It is so obvious that your passion and your gift is displayed in each and every presentation.
You didn’t capture just her Senior year, you captured Nicole’s personality and her beauty.
Our family will cherish these pictures forever, and we will see you again on her Wedding Day…
I so hope everyone has the opportunity to experience what we have.”
