“If you are looking for someone who can capture your wedding day in a natural, genuine, and authentic way then I would definitely recommend Danielle.  She really takes the time to get to know you and your significant other and makes sure to take your personal wishes into account on your day.  She was always very quick to respond to emails, was super flexible with her schedule so she could meet with us on several occasions, she arrived early the day of the wedding, and of course, the photos!  They turned out better than I could have hoped, and she was able to minimize our natural awkward tendencies and capture how happy we were that day.”

~ Adrienne & Derek



 “My favorite part of working with Danielle was that she was so easy to work with!  Very soon after meeting with Danielle I knew that I could trust her and I wouldn’t have to worry about getting great wedding pictures.  Danielle is organized, professional, and full of great ideas.  The moment I hired her, I stopped worrying about whether or not I would have great wedding photos — I knew I would!  I can’t wait to work with her again!”

“Danielle was fantastic!!!!! Photography was the one stress-free part of my wedding. She was there early and stayed late. My time with her was over before the toasts and dances and she stayed an hour late to catch those moments without charging extra. She was amazing!!!!”

~ Kaitlin & Chris



 “Danielle was very professional and caring.  We enjoyed her company, understanding, and kindness.  As first timers, she made us feel welcome and took time to help us understand.  You rarely meet people who genuinely care for you and take the time to be perfect.  Danielle went the extra mile to make us happy — There is no better option.  Period!”

“[I was concerned] that we would do only the “cheesy” engagement pictures that I see some of my friends do.  It didn’t come true — the pictures were beautiful and classic.  The photos came out beautifully on a very ugly day outside, the whole process was easy, and Danielle made us feel very comfortable.  We were able to do everything we wanted, and she put up with Sam, our dog!”

maternity photographers testimonial


“Before my maternity photo session, I was nervous about how I would look in the photos.  I felt like a beached whale, so I was anxious about seeing that on film.  However, I was beyond thrilled when I saw the proofs.  I looked beautiful, even at 7 months pregnant!  Danielle’s photographic eye is amazing, and making a pregnant woman feel beautiful is the best gift she could ever give!”

~ Katie & Steve


“[I was concerned whether] I could be spontaneous enough to relax for pictures. I did better than I expected! Danielle has great ideas and helped me feel comfortable. She does an amazing job with perfecting lighting and unique angles.”
