My name is Danielle, head of the DDP team!
I'm so happy you've landed on my page!

I wasn't destined to be a photographer. My parents didn't grow up in the artistic industry and I am not following in the foot steps of anyone, I just liked taking photos. I used to spend my Friday nights at an underground music club called the Croc Rock Cafe taking photos of bands. Never did I think that would turn into a career of photographing couples in love. I'll make a long story short – I went to photography school and graduated in 2009. I shot my first wedding in 2011 and I knew that's what I wanted to do. 

Weddings are my thing, my person as Christina Yang would say. I truly believe I have the best. job. ever.

In business and in life, I've always been that person that gets along with everyone. I'm a very go-with-the-flow kind of person. I like to laugh, eat good food, experience new things, and create meaningful connections along the way. 

When I'm not searching out Greenville's tastiest dive or planning my next weekend adventure with my husband, you'll probably find me in the gym. I work out because exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. And, as a wise, blonde, brilliant lawyer once said, "Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t!"

who we are

how we met & our love story

Ya know that saying, "It was right in front of your face the whole time?" Well, that's kind of how it went down. And "it" was our love.

We technically met in 2015 when we both worked at Target (yup, everyone's fav store!). I had a huge crush on him (but I was too nervous to ever say anything). Fast forward ten years later, we ran into each other at a local CrossFit. We exchanged numbers (oddly enough, I already had his number still in my phone from ten years ago [so weird!] he swears he didn't even have that number when we worked together and I just was some creep who stalked him all this time (not true!) We had our first date at a little Vietnamese restaurant called TOPO [the old post office] and we've been together ever since! We have mutual friends who have known us separately and together--- they all agree together makes more sense. 


Six years later 

We moved to South Carolina two years ago and have created the most wonderful life here. We have a baby boy named Jackson and are loving being parents! We created this business to serve YOU and be a ONE-STOP-SHOP for all your memory needs and give you the best wedding experience ever!


we can't wait to hear your love story!

This I Believe...

My favorite travel experience was when I visited Thailand in 2018. It was a 19 hour flight—but the food, the elephants, the monkeys, tuk-tuk taxis, hot-grilled corn on the beach, two pound lobsters, the beautiful water, and all inclusive breakfast (and i'm talking stations from wall to wall) made it totallyyyy worth it! It’s something I will never forget.

Wedding photography wasn’t always my vision. I got my start photographing live bands at a local club near my hometown, The Croc Rock.  

I love taking cooking classes with my husband. It such a fun way to spend time together and try something new. And—yeah, okay, fine—you get to eat!

(Can you tell I'm a huge foodie yet?)
