Denise Retallack is an experienced Architectural photographer based in New England servicing national clients. Her love of photographing the landscape as much as structural space, has led her to developing a loyal client base that includes architectural firms, landscape architects and interior designers.
Recognized as a photographer who humanizes space, Denise acknowledges: “It’s important for me to represent that these spaces are loved. I seek to show how each location is used, not just what it looks like. With that in mind, I bring people into the spaces in ways that are appropriate to show the use, and the joy, without people being the focus.”
Utilizing light and space as sculpting tools, Denise creates graphic images that contain strong composition, while retaining the intimacy of a space as needed. She seeks to create beautiful, illustrative architectural shots that show how spaces are used and appreciated. Her visual respect of space is valued by clients in the architectural field as well as by product manufacturers, lighting companies, hospitality clients and the building industries.
Denise collaborates closely with her clients who include;
LandDesign, BARBERMcMURRY architects, CRJA-IBI Group, Sanders Pace Architecture, Shepley Bulfinch, McCarty Holsaple McCarty, Gresham Smith and Partners, Brown and Caldwell, HGTV Magazine and Johnson & Galyon Construction.
Denise always seeks to understand the project details, concepts, and important design elements of each structure, in order to create images that convey her client’s vision, talent, and the final design. With years of experience, Denise brings deep understanding and appreciation for all the time, talent, and passion her clients put into their work and is honored to apply her talents and vision to illustrate the story of each project.

In short, Denise is exceptional at her craft.” - Joy Lauderdale / Lauderdale Design Group
