These sessions are about an hour long, on location! I help with planning outfits, scheduling, and location recommendations if needed! This is a time for you to be relaxed and completely focused on a fun time with your spouse/family or even pets! I am totally up for an adventure. I've done sessions on mountain tops, at local parks or even in your backyard. You tell me what your envisioning and I will help capture it!

Danielle works closely with these couples throughout the planning as well as having point of contact with her associate photographer!

I treat each photo I take as if they were my memories, my family, my moments. I don’t cap my deliverables. I only filter out test shots, blinking, duplicates and the occasional hand in the air “bug swat” photo. I will deliver blurred images. I like to show movement in my photos -- it shows real life. Something that takes you right back to that day. I have a moody edit to my photos. Every image is individually touched to compliment the feel of your day.
When I know what’s important to you, it becomes important to me. Every wedding is different. Let me say that again. Every wedding is different. There’s no right and there’s no wrong. (but there is a right and a left. HA okay enough with the bad jokes) I listen to what matters to you. I ask what moments you’re most looking forward to, so I handle those with a little extra, extra care. And maybe you have moments that you’re like meh, don’t really care about, that's fine too. I adjust my time with you so I am using it as proficiently as possible.
Plain and simple, you can never have too much of it. When I say I want to know every little detail about what you have planned -- I truly mean it. Why? Well, the more I know, the more I can plan. I plan for who is involved? How long will things take? Locations? All this matters and I take big pride in being prepared on wedding days and the only way this can happen is through communication.
My early career I worked in retail management for 12 years. It’s where I get my need to be around people and different personalities that come at you on a wedding day—I can handle, no worries. By the end of the night I am on the dance floor with your family. This is also where my need to pay attention to detail and OCD comes in, hard. Handling so many tasks, projects and teams throughout the day—I had to stay organized and on top of things!
I know that choosing a wedding photographer is a huge decision—one of the biggest choices you make throughout the wedding planning process—and I don't take my responsibility lightly. It's important to me that you enjoy your day, not stress about it, and I'll do everything I can to make it as joyous and smooth as possible.
