So, while finding a photographer to capture stunning, special photographs is important, feeling comfortable with (and confident in!) them matters, too.

Of course you want those light-filled, glowing images that take you right back to that moment — pictures you can look back on through the thick and thin of your marriage and feel like you’re right back on the dance floor, slow dancing with your love under the twinkly lights, with all your favorite people beaming around you. 

But having a photographer who makes anyone feel at ease in front of the camera, can create wedding timelines in her sleep, and has no problem wrangling a tipsy bunch of cousins together for that group shot? Those things are pretty important, too.  

And they’re just a few of the skills I bring to your day, along with my cameras. 

 “We were passionate about finding a photographer who could capture timeless, elegant, classic photos on our wedding day.

We found all of that, and more, in Danielle.”

— alex & nicole

She has a rare talent and ability to see beauty in seemingly simple poses or backdrops. She will make you feel natural and at ease, especially if this is your first time taking professional photos like us! Her calm demeanor, attention to detail, and expertise is much appreciated during the hustle and bustle of a wedding day. We hired Danielle for our wedding, but ended up with a friend who we will trust to capture our biggest moments in life for years to come!”


While nothing makes me happier than showing off my finger guns on the dance floor, your wedding photographer doesn’t need to be remembered by your guests.

I’ll be the friendly face you need to keep calm throughout your wedding day, but I’m also able to disappear when the moment calls for it — because your love story isn’t about me. 

I’ll always provide direction when the time calls for it, but I aim to let things flow as they will and capture everything as it happens, shooting candids and planned photos like it’s no big thing.

I walk quietly, weaving in and out of the aisle smoothly, and try my best to breathe silently as the videographers record those sweet heartfelt vows (which is easier said than done!)

"As a bride, you really need an advocate who will guide you through the day to make everything sail smoothly, among all the stress.

For me, that was Danielle."

As a wedding photographer myself, it took me a long time to pick someone, and I swear I say at least once a week to my husband now how glad I am that we chose Danielle. She was so kind, patient, and positive throughout the whole process, and she truly made me SO calm and collected, which was important for me.”




photography process

step one

We’ll each grab our fave drink and connect on a discovery call. 
I wanna hear every little detail about your love story and what you’re picturing for your wedding day! After your call, you’ll receive a custom quote. 

step four

While you’re being swept off to your honeymoon, I’ll be busy hand-selecting each image to include in your gallery. Once you return and settle into your newlywed lives, it’ll be time for you to view your finished gallery!

step two

Once you’re dates in my calendar - cheers! - we’ll work together in the months before your wedding to choose the ideal locations for photos and confirm details so I can create a custom wedding day timeline. We’ll also book your complimentary engagement shoot!

step five

You’ll receive some sweet snail mail from yours truly — an heirloom photobox holding a custom USB drive of all your wedding photos, plus some beautiful prints from your day.  Because there’s nothing quite like having something more tangible to hold onto to remind you of your favorite day ever.

Trust me when I tell you, I know how stressful it is to plan your wedding — I’ve been the frazzled bride, worrying about what to do, when to do it, and how to make everything happen.  So, as your wedding photographer, I do everything in my power to *not* add to that chaos (and to not be the reason you say "I am SO over planning this wedding”). 

step three

On your wedding day, I'll be by your side the entire time, helping things keep their flow, capturing all of your big and little moments, and telling you as many times as you need to hear it: YOU LOOK GOOOOOD. 

I'm all about prioritizing fun—and here's how:

"Danielle is warm, professional, and           
has a smile on her face, helping to put you at ease from the moment you arrive until the moment you see your final gallery.”


— raven

“She captures little candid moments beautifully, and has an amazing eye for detail. Her process is streamlined, her communication is excellent, and I can’t wait to work with her again.”


"We're super bad at photos. 

It's my job to make sure you look your absolute best, but it’s my specialty to help you go from “ew, I feel awkward” to “omg, I actually feel good!?! Should I model?” 

I’ll triple check that your hands aren't in a weird place, your hair isn't roosting like a chicken, and you aren't wide-eyed staring at each other like a potential dateline special.

Two words: hell. yes.

Do you think you'll be able to make us look normal?"



After 10+ years of shooting hundreds of weddings, I’ve designed a strategy to tailor my packages to the exact needs of my couples.

I spend a lot of time thoughtfully building a custom quote for every single couple I work with. This quote is based on several factors, including location and cost of travel, how much coverage you need, and any specific requests you may have.

If you’re quickly scanning this page looking for my prices — I totally get it. You have a whole wedding to plan and a budget to consider, and you’ve got a million decisions to make that impact your overall spending. 

And that’s exactly why I don’t take this investment lightly and want to make sure you’re given a fully thought-out quote. 

How do I save the date?"

"okay, i'm sold.

1. Hit “INQUIRE” below to get in touch!

2. We’ll set a no-pressure time to chat about alllll the details

3. You’ll review your contract & invoice duo—aka proposal (though a bit different from your last proposal 😉)

4. Sign the dotted line & you can consider your date saved! 

5. You'll receive easy questionnaires along the way and we'll be chatting right up until the wedding day about all the possibilities!
