One of the biggest concerns I hear from clients is that they look awkward in photographs and aren't looking forward to their session. I get it... I feel you and I have been there. You know why this time your experience will be different? Because I have been in your shoes, I know what it was like to be in front of a camera with no direction, no talking just pure "what do I do with my hands" moments. I will make sure you know what to expect every step of the way.
I don't just photograph couples. I love working with other entrepreneurs to provide them with custom sessions for their business needs. Whether it is fresh headshots, lifestyle images, product photography or even marketing videos I am there to help grow your business! Message me to set up a meeting to go over your visions and we will get started planning so you can achieve your goals!
Fill out the contact form to start the planning process. We will book a time to chat on the phone or meet in person to go over the entire experience and what you can expect.
Once you decide you would love to work with me we will plan out a date that works best for you. Ideally I do like to have back up dates as options when available in the event the weather isn't on our side.
Whether we are planning engagement photos or updating your business photos I like to make sure we plan around what suits you best. I will send over questionnaires to get to know you and we will go over all the wardrobe planning together as well.
This is where I get to finally get make all those visions you described to me come to life! I love having people in front of my camera and connecting with them. We will meet up at the location and I will go over the what to dos and what not to dos before we get started. You will hear a lot of cheers and weird little screech sounds... thats just me in awe of what I see when I get THE shot and I get too excited I may stop to show you because it is just that amazing!
I have been in your shoes remember? So when I get home and once all your photographs are backed up safely I will begin to edit a few sneak previews to send over to you within the next 48 hours. We will also set up your viewing session to come and see your full gallery for the first time. Once you have selected the must have, can't live without photographs you will receive your online digital gallery and we will order the prints you wish to have up in your home to showcase these beautiful photographs.
I had admired Danielle's work for quite some time, so when it came time to actually be able to work with her for our wedding we were so excited...and she did not disappoint! She was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the entire planning process. She was quick to respond to communications and accommodating to all of our requests. When we finally got to meet her for our engagement session her bubbly personality made us feel right at ease. Throughout the session she was encouraging and gave plenty of direction for posing so we didn't feel aimless in front of the camera. On the wedding day it felt like she was just another family member hanging out with us and she captured the entire day perfectly. She delivered the finished photos to us in an extremely timely manner (a matter of a few weeks) which I was totally impressed by since friends and family had warned me that they had to wait a few to several months to get their photos back. The format in which she prices her services is affordable and customized to your needs. We got exactly what we wanted and didn't feel like we were being ripped off - if anything we felt like we were stealing her at a deal for the quality of work she delivers. I cannot recommend Danielle highly enough! She is a spectacular photographer and further more a genuinely kind person who we now consider to be a dear friend!

As for the shoot itself, I'm not one who is particularly comfortable in front of the camera and I was unsure what to think going into the process. Danielle made me feel welcome right away and talked to my fiance and I like we were old friends. We were laughing right away and having so much fun! It was such a pleasure to work with the two photographers. I would happily use them for any event I could and would recommend them to anyone. Now for the pictures. I don't have words for how wonderful the pictures turned out! There was no way I could narrow down the list to even twenty favorites. The shots were varied in nature, all very crisp and extremely well framed. The natural lighting and our smiles could not have been better captured.

We love love. We love lovebirds, love notes, true love, crazy love, love nests, and love quests. We love love, and all the little moments that make it so. We also love stories, especially love stories. And every day, we are grateful to be part of one. We are also grateful for Danielle, our photographer extraordinaire, who made this love story of ours come to life through her images. She captured the love, the soul, the rawness of our favorite chapter yet. She is our hero in (one of) our (many) books (to come.)
