I have photographed close to 200 weddings the last 12 years and I can tell you right now that for the last 7 years creating films has been a deep dream of mine. One of those things you feel like you NEED to do. I have had the honour of being witness to so many moments during wedding days that nobody else gets to see. I hear conversations and stories of the bride from her grandma or how the bride and groom met, the feelings the bride or groom are feeling right before they walk down the aisle or the small comment the dad tells the bride before the two of them in their own moment walk down the aisle I could go on forever but you get the point; it's the things NOBODY else hears... wedding days are a blur so how many of those sweet tiny yet big in the scheme of thing conversations are actually remembered with just my photos? Not many I bet.
Fill out the contact form below and we will set up a time to chat over the phone or meet in person to discuss your videography needs.
Video requires a lot more planning than photographs. When you decide you want to invest in video services I want to know what you value out of the experience. What does having this video mean to you?
Whether this is for wedding or corporate we will sit down for about an hour going over all the details to plan. Your communication is so important when it comes to this so we do need to make sure we invest in time to properly coordinate every detail that will go into this video for you.
Our first and most important aspect is the audio. It is the first thing that we set up and we record a few back up copies as we go. Next once we have the audio going we get to work with the cameras. If drone coverage is requested and permitted in the area we will either do that earlier in the day or later that day as golden hour is usually our go to time for those dreamy drone video shots.
Video requires many more hours to review audio as well as all the footage. Once we review all that we captured we put together a storyline to tell the story of your video and then we select the licensed music we think fits your personality and video best. Turn around time for corporate videos vary from 1-4 weeks depending on the project. Wedding video turn around time is 12-16 weeks. You will receive the link to view your video. USBs are also available.
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.)
