The finest images stem from fun

The Experience

My goal is unwavering: to work in a way that encourages you to remain joyful and present for your celebration—and to deliver images that allow you to relive the spirit of your day for a lifetime to come.

You are my why

Connections, laughter, embraces, glances, inside jokes—the moments that make up your love story are my inspiration. I believe those moments—and the people behind them—deserve exceptional service, unwavering attention to detail, and a wedding photographer who brings both the warm familiarity of a friend and the discerning eye of an expert.

A process that exceeds

I take on only a limited number of events each year so I can remain tuned-in to your every need throughout the planning process. I put my whole heart into ensuring that, when your wedding weekend arrives, you feel confident, present, and ready to celebrate. Because you don’t just deserve a wedding photographer—you deserve an advocate, artist, stylist, expert, and friend.

Images you will obsess over

With an artistic eye and a honed ability to anticipate and adapt, I remain poised to capture even the most short-lived slices in time with incredible intention—so, at the end of the day, your gallery becomes an heirloom. Ultimately, I want the images I share with you to earn a space in your heart—and on your wall—for a lifetime ahead.

“When we received all of our wedding photos, looking at them brought us right back to that joyous day and brought the same emotions to us that we felt then.”

Kristen and Remy

​​Photography was one of the most important aspects of our wedding. We have both never been that comfortable around the camera and posing for our pictures, but Danielle made us feel at ease.

CONNECTION

THE PROCESS

Expect all good things

We’ll set a time to chat and go over your vision, the details of your day, and coverage hours—but mostly to get to know each other and to begin to foster the connection that leads to captivating images.

01

COMMUNICATION

I’ll keep you informed throughout the planning process—sending along everything from vendor recommendations to engagement-session tips—without overwhelming you with unnecessary details. Because your plate should be full of wedding cake, not tedious to-dos.

02

COORDINATION

I’ll coordinate with your vendors and create a wedding-day photography timeline that outlines how we’ll work together to ensure an effortless flow and complete coverage of every last moment.

03

CELEBRATION

When the day-of arrives, I work to foster an environment of presence and positivity as we capture organic, emotive images. My goal is for you to forget the camera and focus instead on immersing yourself in each moment and soaking in the company of your favorite people.

by the numbers

Do you travel?

I’m based in Los Angeles and am happy to serve couples throughout Southern California—including in Malibu, Santa Barbara, and Santa Ynez.

How many hours of coverage do I need?

Reach out to inquire, and we’ll get to the bottom of just how many hours (or days) is ideal based on your distinct event vision. I'll create a custom collections designed to suit your needs.

What is your starting price point?

Rates begin at $6,000 and may increase based on coverage hours, additional shooting required (welcome dinners or farewell brunches), and travel time.

How far in advance should we book our wedding photographer?

Because I only take on a limited number of weddings each year, dates are typically reserved up to 18 months in advance.

How many photos can we expect to receive?

While the answer varies for every wedding, you can typically expect to receive around 50-100 images per hour of coverage.

How long after our wedding will we receive our photos?

You will receive your gallery within 8-10 weeks of your wedding day. All of the images in your gallery will be professionally edited and include personal reprinting rights.

Do you offer engagement photoshoots?

I do—an engagement session is included with each wedding package but also may be booked on its own. You can learn more about my offerings on my services page.

Do you only shoot film?

I shoot both film and digital. 

How do you prepare for a wedding day?

My preparations include conversations with you so we can get to know each other, coordination with your vendors, creating a wedding-day photography timeline (often working with your wedding planner), creating a shot list, and scouting the location(s) in advance.
