BIZZY & NIKHIL

Our jaws dropped and eyes filled with tears when we first saw the images. Danielle was present throughout the entire rehearsal dinner and wedding night, capturing all of the moments we never would have been able to see ourselves or even remembered. We are so thankful to have had someone like Danielle document these moments for us to have for the rest of our lives!

I know it seems ridiculous to give all 5 stars, but Danielle truly earned every one of them. She was able to take the most important day of our lives and make it even more special. She has an air of calm that put us at ease, laughing, and allowing complete trust of her creative process. At the reception she was able to capture so many special, candid moments of our friends and family that we are taken back to that day every time we look at her photographs.

Danielle made the whole process so easy and fit right in with our friends. She delivered our photos on time and they were exactly what I was hoping for! I was nervous about spending too much and over-shooting our budget. I’m happy about every penny we spent. She felt like one of us! Our friends and family loved her. We did too :)

Besides taking vivid and emotion filled photos, Danielle makes you feel like a star as she gushes and marvels at the wedding couple on their special day. You don't even notice Danielle capturing every angle throughout the day, (except for the couple shots after the ceremony), and then a month later you get the collection of photos and experience a rush of euphoria at the beauty of your wedding day. I give her my highest recommendation!

ASHTON & JEREMY

My wife and I were traveling from across the country to elope in Seattle, and were lucky enough to find Danielle through a mutual friend, and we could not be happier with our photos. Not only was Danielle kind enough to help us find a great location for our ceremony, but her personality and photo ideas on the day itself were just what we needed. So happy to have her as part of our wedding, and she is highly recommended!

Danielle is amazing. Because our wedding was a surprise, we didn't have a shot list and despite that, Danielle was flexible and managed to capture everything perfectly. We highly recommend Danielle!

CHELSEA & DARREN

I felt so lucky to have Danielle as my photographer for my wedding. Not only is she incredibly nice but she is so down to earth and genuine. I felt completely taken care of the whole time and knew that she would get the shots that I wanted. She not only captures beautiful pictures of the bride and groom but she was able to get pictures of the whole day and encompass the joy that everyone was having. The day goes by so fast that having pictures of everyone that attended was so nice to have. Both my husband and myself were incredibly happy with our choice to go with Danielle and I would highly recommend her to anyone who was getting married.

Looking for a photographer is daunting, and I completely understand that. Pricing is not apples to apples and it's difficult to know what you're getting. From this gal's perspective, I've based pricing on my extensive background & experience and the amount of time & work that goes into every session from our first communication through to the delivery of your images. I take great care to make sure we're set up for success and you feel valued as a client. And most of all, I want to bring images to life for you that truly capture what you're looking for. My advice as you go through this process with your honey would be trust your gut, hop on a phone call with photographers you're considering, look at testimonials on their website and wedding sites, examine their portfolio and make sure their work really speaks to you. In the end getting photos taken is an investment and you should feel like you've found someone who can deliver what you need.

How Do I choose the right Photographer?

I have a background rooted in analog film so I have a real soft spot for timeless black & white imagery. As part of my edit process, I curate apx ⅓ of the images to be b&w. If you prefer color-editing only, let me know before the wedding.


Wedding packages vary based on location, scale, and your specific needs. I’d love to hear about what your needs are so I can share some tailored packages with you based on your big day.

Weddings are booked with a signed agreement, and a 50% retainer payment. Turnaround time is typically 4-6 weeks on a wedding. Everything is handled through my online booking system run by Honeybook

Umm, first of all - good for you, that’s amazing and yes I love to travel for weddings! Let me know where and when you’re headed in the wedding questionnaire and I’ll provide you with some packages that are fit for your extra special trip with a special someone. 

Absolutely! Instead of filling out the full questionnaire, just click “engagement only” up at the top and let me know what you’re looking to do so I can provide you with an estimate for a lifestyle session. 

I do! (see what I did there?) Just fill out the wedding questionnaire and give me the details of how your intimate wedding is taking shape. I can put together something that is just the right size for you.

Will I receive color and black and white images?
