I chose photography as my dream and my work and my job because I wanted to travel to beautiful places, because I wanted to create images that hold stories & emotion, and because “imagine the people I’ll meet!”
And the adventures are abundant, the travel is exciting, and I savor the freedom of working entirely for myself. But what makes every bad day worth it, and every good day even better, are my clients: the wonderful people I get to photograph.
Here’s what they have to say:
“Danielle did family photos for our relatives, and when we saw the photos, we couldn't help but ask who did them and how we could steal her for our engagement pictures. After being amazed by her bliss and warm heart, not to mention her talent in photography, we knew we wanted her to photograph our wedding. We don't always like having our pictures taken, but Danielle made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Our favorite moments were captured as we were telling stories to one another and being as free as possible. Unlike many photographers, she is open to suggestions: she cares about the moments we want to capture, about what might look best, and the photos always turn out amazing. As soon as we saw the previews from our wedding, we were counting down the days to get all of our photos, and we got them so quickly! Danielle captured every moment and made sure she got the perfect shot. Not only did we get pictures that will last us a lifetime of joy, but we gained a friend.”

"Dear Danielle: Thank you so much for such a wonderful day full of wonderful memories captured in your beautiful photos. This photo shoot was like nothing I had experienced before and I am so grateful we got to share it with you. The entire collection is stunning and I can't pick a favorite! They're all so lovely! We're excited to print and frame some of these special photographs which we will treasure along with the memories. Thank you so much."

"Danielle was an absolute blast to work with, not only did she make us both feel comfortable (even my nervous boyfriend who does not like the camera much), she even got us running around and captured some beautiful moments! I adore her and her personality, and the photos came out AH-MA-ZING! I cannot wait to work with her again, or even hang out, as I have made a lifelong friend!
Thank you so much Dani!!!"

"You know that person whose writing you love? They just seem to get you. That person who stitches beautiful words into melodic sentences. They make sense of all the chaos in the mind. You swear they are pulling the images and feelings right out of your own head, except, somehow, they have the ability to make sense of it all.
That's Danielle, except, she's even more. She is the images that were created by the words that were created by the emotions and feelings. Her photos are my memories: the feelings I have for my family and the fleeting joyful moments, all captured by her.
I'm forever grateful for Danielle and her ability to capture our personalities in her photos. Thank you, Danielle, for sharing your beautiful talent with us for the last two years. I cherish every photo you have given us."

Thank you so so so much for being our wedding photographer!! I couldn’t thank you enough for your talent and your friendship.
I was first drawn to your unique editing and how relaxed and happy your subjects looked. I loved that you obviously had experience in capturing the beauty of Washington.
You spoiled me! When I emailed you, you responded the same day and even after we signed the contract you still would check up on us asking how we were doing and just being the sweetest person you are!
On a professional level you were hands down, amazing. You took the time meet us, answer our questions and even sent us an absolutely lovely portfolio that confirmed how much we wanted you to be our photographer. When meeting you, I loved how you easily and genuinely conveyed how much you loved your job and how excited you were to capture our wedding day. On our big day, you were so wonderful: your happy, friendly personality put me immediately at ease. I felt like you were there as one of my best friends. You did your job seamlessly, chatting with our families and setting up photos without a single hitch. My husband and I felt so comfortable with you and we can’t wait for another life event to have an excuse to work with you again! After the wedding you surprised us again with how quickly you started working on our photos; sending us previews the day after. I can’t even tell you how blown away we were when less than two weeks after the wedding you had ALL of them done! I couldn’t believe it, I cried. The photos are so beautiful. I am so thankful for you and your talents!
Overall, you went above and beyond any expectations. The amount of heart and soul you put into your job reflects in your work. I asked you for a service and you gave me that, plus so much more. I am forever grateful, thank you."

"Danielle is AMAZING! She recently did our anniversary photos in Joshua Tree, and she was an absolute dream to work with. She was prompt, not only on the day of, but quick to get the images edited and sent to us. The photos are stunning. She truly captured everything that makes our relationship authentic. She captured us being silly, romantic, laughing, in love, and even some really beautiful artistic shots that I can't help but show EVERYONE. I love them that much. I told her, 'looking at these photos makes me fall in love all over again.'"
- Tanya & Travis
"Danielle’s ability to capture wonderful, perfect moments as photographs is truly beautiful. Even more so, her great spirit and positive energy eased our nerves, and is evident in the art she creates. Even on a cold, rainy day, we had a great experience with Danielle’s company on our adventure through the beautiful lakes and forests of Washington. Her photos are the kinds that you remember forever that will be shared and passed down to friends and family. Looking forward, these photographs will always hold a special place in our hearts, as they preserve a moment in time that we will never forget. Danielle has an amazing gift that makes every moment something to cherish, and we are so thankful to have made friends with such a wholesome soul."

"Dear Danielle: A million thanks for such a lovely adventure and for the beautiful photographs. It was such a special trip to Ghost Ranch. I'd like to think you helped both Seth and I find a new spark of love and beauty for our own state. Plus, it was just so fun to adventure with you. Your kind and humorous spirit was a true joy and made the day so very memorable. We cannot wait to frame and treasure these images for years to come! Thank you again!!!! Xo, Andie + Seth"
