With a seamless nudging of the chin this way, a quick tucking of the elbow that way, and well-timed dad joke to capture your real smile, I’ll make sure that you not only look picture-perfect — but that you never feel awkward having your photo taken.
(Disclaimer: all dad jokes will be blatantly stolen from my husband, Albert, the dad joke connoisseur and my former second shooter, who has since been fired and delegated to Dad Duty.)
MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
and making people feel comfortable is my specialty.
Choosing the right photographer is about so much more than just how well they can take your photo; it’s about how they make you feel when you’re behind the camera — that’s why I put so much emphasis on the experience of putting people at ease.
Your intimidating, hard-as-nails uncle? Let me at him. Your super-shy little cousin? Not anymore! Tough-to-please grandma? We’re about to be best friends.
Ya know, if Yoda was able to take photos that look like they were plucked straight out of a magazine, and make you feel as confident as the model on the cover… and was (thankfully) a hell of a lot less wrinkly.
Now, should I be comparing myself to a Star Wars character on my professional, big-girl website? Maybe not, but…
How else was I supposed to help you understand that I’d love to be the capable, wisdom-filled calming presence you can trust to photograph your important events and make you feel comfortable while doing it?

"Danielle exceeded our expectations for a photographer.
She was fun, funny, professional, and made us feel SO comfortable.Our photos were a dream; she made me feel so beautiful, and I love looking at them all the time!”
— Leah C.
"Danielle’s sense of humor alone will set your mind at ease with your shoot...
especially if you tend to be a bit tense or nervous. Not only does Danielle give you amazing photos to keep forever, but she’s also an absolute JOY to work with.”
— a.p. watson
E-Bike riding with my husband and son. (Because, according to my husband, e-bikes are a big deal — so, per his request, this is actually just me letting you know how cool I am.)
Chasing our (very spoiled) sheep and chickens all over our farm — Wild Warren Farm, est. 2020.
Feverishly flipping through the pages of the latest Sarah J. Maas book, dreaming of a few certain Illyrian bat boys. IYKYK.
Daydreaming about running off to a cottage in the English countryside, surrounded by poppies (and, of course, more sheep).
Probably getting onto a plane going, well… I don’t care where it’s going, actually. I’d go anywhere for a passport stamp.
Specifically, equality for all human beings regardless of race, gender identity, sexual identity, or physical & mental ability.
I will always stand against discrimination and racism of any kind and I’m dedicated to actively fighting to make this world more inclusive — through my work and through my personal endeavors. Because, to me, those are the same thing.

"Our session made me feel as though I’ve known her for —
she’s so warm and thoughtful. I can’t say enough about Danielle and her services. She was accommodating, professional and her work speaks for itself. Her bride’s checklist and questionnaire are so thorough and put every stressful bride at ease."
WHAT DOES YOUR DREAM WEDDING LOOK LIKE?
Lush & lofty florals everywhere.
If your overflowing wedding inspo Pinterest board has even just one of these, I wanna be your wedding photographer so freaking bad.
My pup’s silhouette etched on cocktail napkins
(and anywhere else you can appropriately incorporate a pet into wedding decor without crossing the ‘weirdo’ boundary)
A phenomenal wedding vendor team
One that has every last detail covered without even breaking a sweat (don't worry, I got recs for ALL DAY LONG)
Chic, fashion-forward outfits
that look like they walked right off the runway — in the best way possible.
A dreamy venue with unique AF touches
that have guests saying “remember so-and-so’s wedding?” for years after.
Sipping on some boujee, over-the-top hand-crafted cocktails
because let’s be real, what’s a party without alcohol?
(who wouldn't want that?!)
love a good list?
And then rest assured that you’ll be able to remember even the teeniest details that made up your wedding day.
