NO LONGER BOOKING SENIOR PICTURES FOR GIRLS
"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 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!

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! 🙂
"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."
Flower Mound, Texas
George's Response: What an honor to capture the spirit and soul of Nicole. A very unique young lady with a sense of fashion and style. I adored this session. Thank you for selecting me to create amazing photographic artwork for Nicole. HUGS!
"That was a session of a lifetime. You truly are brilliant with a camera and the work you do is phenomenal. "
I just want to thank you again for exceeding any and all expectations with Alex's senior pictures!
I don't know of any other photographer that visits a home and personally goes through every item of clothing, shoes and accessories for a photo shoot. Add to that over four hours of shooting at a spectacular location, tons of patience and unimaginable amounts of creativity...and you produce pieces of art!
That was a session of a lifetime and we are so grateful you chose her for the last senior to ever be photographed there.
Five years ago you photographed Trey, then Branden and now Alex, and you continue to impress us all.
You truly are brilliant with a camera and the work you do is phenomenal.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

George's Response: We were truly lucky to photograph at the Flour Mill in McKinney Texas. This was the last official photo shoot before the extensive renovation. What an honor. Your images are truly unique from a setting no longer available. What a honor to photography ALL THREE of your seniors. What a gift. Thank you for being so amazing.
"George went above and beyond from trying to get the perfect lighting and shadowing to making sure that there was not a single strand of hair sticking to my glossy lips.
He makes you feel like you are in the comfort of your own home just messing around with a snazzy camera but has you walking out feeling like a super model."
"I would like to try to put my senior session photo shoot experience with George into words. As I was looking for a photographer, I found myself drawn to George after viewing his website. The videos that he has posted made me feel as if he knew what he was talking about and the artwork was very impressive.
When I was getting my whole wardrobe together I prayed that all of that stressful packing would soon pay off... My prayer was answered and even better than I had hoped for. I am head over heels for my pictures! I am astonished by George’s skills, love, and knowledge for photography. He went above and beyond from trying to get the perfect lighting and shadowing to making sure that there was not a single strand of hair sticking to my glossy lips.
It became obvious to me that George takes pride in his work and strives for that perfect image. He is so talented and full of energy. My every desire that I had in mind for that day was certainly fulfilled. George makes you feel like you are in the comfort of your own home just messing around with a snazzy camera but has you walking out feeling like a super model.
With all the laughter and the snapping of a camera, I would have to say that taking my senior pictures with George was by far the best way to end my senior year. A great experience and stunning results!

George's Response: Awww Paige, you rocked. It was fun. Fun helps create beautiful senior portraits. Let's do it again one day!
"As her senior year approached, I set out to find a photographer that could show her that she had true beauty- inside and out! The few sneak peeks you let me see brought tears to my eyes and also brought back the self-confident daughter that I had missed."
"It felt like I was getting pictures taken by my best friend! You were so energetic and made me laugh! I loved your clothing choices for me and appreciate the time you spent on the little details. "
Letter from Allyson's Mother
Wow! How do I find the words to capture the emotions from our wonderful experience with you?
And how did we not find you sooner?
Allyson was a former child/pre-teen model, but “sized-out” and was dropped from her agency. Because of this, her self-esteem was negatively impacted.
As her senior year approached, I set out to find a photographer that could show her that she had true beauty- inside and out!
I did not want a “run-of-the-mill” photographer taking the same pics, poses, and backgrounds. I wanted someone that could compare to the L.A. photographers we used in the past. When I found your website and viewed your gallery, I knew you were the one that could deliver and resurrect her confidence.
As you met us at the curb with your bell-cart and infectious energy, you began to talk about a new technique you wanted to try using a jar with colored liquid as a filter along with natural sunlight.
The images of that were amazing!
Your creative vision is unsurpassed.
The morning continued and I watched and listened in awe as you helped pick out wardrobe changes and suggested different looks and lighting.
The few sneak peeks you let me see that day brought tears to my eyes and also brought back the self-confident daughter that I had missed.
We will forever be grateful for your amazing talent and the images you captured that day. You truly are a gifted artist and a wonderful human-being!

Letter from Allyson
I just want to say thank you for a wonderful senior picture experience! We booked my session on my 18th birthday and it was such a fun day!
It felt like I was getting pictures taken by my best friend! You were so energetic and made me laugh!
I loved your clothing choices for me and appreciate the time you spent on the little details.
Your creative vision and the way you worked with lighting made my pictures wonderful and unique!
I am thrilled with all you were able to capture that day!
You are so talented and made the entire experience one that will stay with me forever!

George's Response: WOW.... Thanks so much Deena. Allyson was an absolute blast and delight to work with. She had a funky style was totally up for me experimenting to get the right look and styling she deserved. What a shoot! Let's do it again when she graduates college! Thanks for driving up from the Southlake, Texas
"The value of an artist is measured in many ways. I would rather have one of your photos, than every package I have ever bought. If a picture is worth a thousand words, than your professional, artistic shots are worth 100,000 words, or maybe even a million!
Thank you for showing the world how beautiful inside and outside my daughter is! We love you and your photographic ART that is truly world class!"
I am so very glad we chose to go with you for my daughter Samantha’s senior portraits. As a budget conscious mother, I was a bit worried about the prices and costs, but went into the appointment hoping to get just one pretty good picture.
We arrived and it was as if a family member was taking care of us. Samantha was laughing and comfortable the entire time. She was excited to have some input, but thrilled to have a true artist and expert to guide her every step of the way. She loved that you spent time selecting outfits and locations that would showcase her beauty and more importantly, her personality. I tried to not get my hopes up, but was excited by what I saw, and the positive experience we both had.
When we returned to see her final pictures we were completely blown away. No one is perfect, yet every picture we saw was perfect and showcased Samantha’s personality and beauty. Each photo was a cover shot for a magazine, but also an image of Samantha’s sense of humor, kindness, honor, determination, and so many other aspects of her personality. Every image was so much better than I could ever have imagined, and hoped for. We were speechless. I budgeted, and planned, and am so glad we went with you! The value of an artist is measured in many ways. I would rather have one of your photos, than every package I have ever bought. If a picture is worth a thousand words, than your professional, artistic shots are worth 100,000 words, or maybe even a million!
There is no comparison between the best photos an amateur takes, and the art of your photos! I would tell anyone who asks me, that they would be better off going to you, saving for a year if necessary for the image of perfection of their child that will last forever, than scrimping on something they will replace in a few years! Quality and perfection show in every photograph you took! If words can change someone’s opinions and beliefs, than your photos can change their feelings about how they really look, AMAZING! What a great way for my daughter to enter her senior year, knowing she is beautiful every day that she walks by her picture!
I am already planning on having my other daughter come in a few years. Our children leave home shortly after these pictures, and I will always smile when I see these amazing photos on my wall after they are at college and beyond.
Thank you for showing the world how beautiful inside and outside my daughter is! We love you and your photographic ART that is truly world class!
George's Response: Wow. Wow. Wow. Thank you so much for your amazing words and insight! Thanks for driving up from Flower Mound, Texas.
" You are an artisan working in light, evoking powerful emotional responses from each image."
We are writing you today to thank you so much for our spectacular photo shoot.
The instructions on your website were invaluable, especially regarding which clothes to bring. We took your advice on packing everything in our closets and were glad we did. Your extensive knowledge of colors and textures yielded phenomenal results!
The personalized attention you devoted to us created an exceptional photo session. Your energy is infectious and made our day truly memorable.
Even though we are identical twins, our individual photos were very unique, and flawlessly tailored to capture our personalities. We loved your creative touch on the “sister-shots”.
Saying you are an “expert at creating the light each image deserves”, is an understatement. We experienced firsthand your depth of knowledge on lighting. Throughout our three hour session we observed you constantly altering the lighting while constructing the perfect shot. You are an artisan working in light, evoking powerful emotional responses from each image.
The most difficult part of the process was selecting the finished senior portraits. It is nearly impossible to determine which shot is best when they are ALL the best!
Thank you for creating family heirlooms!

George's Response: This literally put tears in my eyes. I actually emailed this to my mom and she replied how proud she was of her son for creating such amazing memories for my clients. I can't thank you enough for the gift of your eloquent wording. Just beautiful. Can't wait to photography you again one day. You ladies share an amazing relationship. Being a dad of twins myself, it was a joy to work with you two!
"You are truly an artist at what you do, I couldn't help but scream when I saw sneak peeks of pics because I was soooooo excited!!! "
"Dear Mr. Dean I was so nervous of giving up control for my shoot but I couldn't be more happy that I did!
You exceeded everyone of my expectations and turned a rainy day into a day full of sunshine and happy memories!
You are truly an artist at what you do, I couldn't help but scream when I saw sneak peeks of pics because I was soooooo excited!!!

George's Response: Thank you for noticing the 'pursuit of perfection'. As an artist it never feels complete but that is my goal. To gift you something amazing you will cherish.
