Hiring a wedding photographer you are confident in is a big deal, the last thing you want is a photographer that isn’t experienced and unable to connect with you. My upbeat personality and energy that I bring allow me to create genuine connections while understanding who and what is most important to you. When I’m your girl your day will be stress free as I capture authentic and timeless photographs that reflect your true story.
When you work with me you get someone who has photographed close to 200 weddings over the last 12 years. I have seen it all and can confidently say I am still fun under pressure.
I'm here to help you not just get the photographs you dream of but to make sure that you are relaxed and stress free on your wedding day. I help you every step of the way with what to expect, the what not to dos and anything else you may wonder about.
In both your engagement session and wedding day, I want your experience to be relaxed, romantic, and natural. In my approach to wedding photography, I combine the eye of a photojournalist with the creativity of a fashion and editorial photographer.
My approach may not be for everyone, and I love it for that reason. It makes me so happy to connect with couples who share my approach to love and values.
My couples are kind, adventurous, plan weddings together, and love some wedding traditions as well, but not just because they want to have them. It is important to them to cherish their family and to not rush through their wedding day.
I want to know how best I can serve you. When you look back through your wedding photographs I want to know what those moments you treasure look like. Let's chat about that and see if we are a good fit to capture those moments perfectly.
Once we decide I fit into your vision of what you value it's time to lock me in. I will send over all the contract details for the two of you to review and sign. Once your deposit of $1000 is received it's official and we are legit! I will do a happy dance and you will receive all the next step details to plan your engagement session!
This is where we get to practice your wedding day dance moves! Just kidding.. but not really. I will send over all the information you need to start brainstorming your engagement session details. From there we get to be as creative as you want with these photos so you can put some art up on your wall! This is one step you shouldn't skip. It allows us to get to know each other and for you both to feel comfortable in front of my camera.
My favourite part because we will get to have cake! I am there for all of it, to capture as many giggles, sweet touching moments and all the love you brought together to celebrate the two of you. After shooting for 12 years I am confident with anything that comes our way and will help with anything so that you can be fully present on your wedding day.
The next morning you wake up officially for the first time as MRS! You will see on your phone a message from me with a few sneak peeks from your incredible day. Mark your calendar for 4 weeks from that day and we will meet for you to come view all of your images together. You will get to view your album design and choose photographs to hang in your home.
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.)
