I am a hype cheerleader, your biggest fan, and really the one who will shed tears as I say goodbye for the evening. I really want you to be 100% stoked on the experience I can bring to your engagement session, the wedding planning process and all the images from your wedding day. While the photographer is one of the main vendors who works closely with you ALL day, I want to make sure we are a fit. Hint * If you like animals and snacks - we will be a perfect fit.
During the engagement session - we will talk a lot - and I will be a bit louder than on the wedding day. Just imagine your best friend came to the session and was your ultimate hype person. I want to get to know you, your love language, how your first date was and what you have envisioned for your wedding day. I also want you to feel AMAZING - because GOSH you are. All those moments of your love story matter. It is apart of the whole journey and I want to understand it.
I pay a great deal of attention towards details and everything that goes into the wedding that you have worked so hard to plan, and all the little moments that happen in between. Preserving all those tender hugs, soft touches, hand squeezes, and all the love shown that day. So you can look back on those photos and generations to come.
We work together from the consult, to the engagement session all the way through to your delivery of your gallery. I will be there for you, and I will probably cry with you! I get misty not going to lie - because after all this - I want to remain friends with you!
because i know I am not the photographer for everyone
Danielle wears many hats for her brides: scheduler, time keeper, hair fixer, family-wrangler, veil carrier, and so much more. We got so many compliments about how well she worked with our family and how well she interacted with our guests.We were blown away by her as a person, and her photographs. We will 100% use her for any photo needs in the future, and could not recommend her more highly to brides looking for a photographer.
"I knew this was the photographer for us."

"we can't imagine anyone more perfect"
We can make beautiful things together. So If you both are looking to have those real-life moments captured, and wanting to walk away with not only beautiful images - but a stress free experience.
I feel like I should let you in on a few things, things that really really matter to me.
I believe in diversity, and all love matters to me. I won't turn down clients due to size, color, background, or beliefs. I also don't turn down clients due to how much they spend on their wedding or their venue. I think the smallest wedding in a park can and does have the same impact as a large venue wedding. I am there to support your undying love to each other - and those don't have qualifications to me. Ever.
While I am there to capture those gorgeous golden sunset snuggles and kisses, I am there to also capture your guests, tears, hugs, hand squeezes and so much more. Some of my favorite images from weddings are the ones you didn't know I got. The one where you did a prayer circle with your family and that tear running down your cheek is swept up by another family member. Those are the moments that matter too.
We're here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.
Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. We've photographed more than 150 weddings in the past few years and we're happy to share everything we've learned along the way!
We’re big fans of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you.
Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. We normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules.
We check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day.
While we normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have questions during the planning process!
It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends.
Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.
You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums.
We hope the relationship doesn't end after we deliver your photographs. We want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, we'd love to document your growing family.
things I strive for -
Photographs are really the only thing we have that is a preserved memory. As time goes on, we look back at photos in history books to reflect, or to remember a time that "happened when". I look back at my parents photos, and even given the time, those photos are still timeless. Even my dad's baby blue suit.....
For some, those moments in photos we look back on bring on a field of emotions. I want my clients to open their galleries and feel that days emotions all over again. Your wedding day is going to be one of the MOST monumental days in your life, and those feelings of that first looks tears, or first drunken kiss, or Mom's hand squeeze when that last dress button is done - is going to be what you cherish the most.
I live for that.
