About

You don鈥檛 want a basic wedding package and you definitely don鈥檛 want just any photographer for your Monterey or Carmel Wedding.As a wedding photographer, my connection to my couples is more important to me than anything else

You want a wedding photographer who you can trust to capture every single moment: from your guests' reactions as they arrive at the picturesque winery or the beachfront wedding you鈥檝e chosen for your wedding venue, to the getaway car at the end of the night when it hits you that you are really married now. You want a wedding photographer who can help you feel calm and relaxed throughout the planning process, and filled with joy and laughter on your wedding day.

Serving couples getting married in dreamy wedding locations, whether it鈥檚 a vineyard in Carmel Valley or a beach wedding in Monterey, fills my heart with so much joy. It鈥檚 always a thrill to return to venues I love, but with nearly 100 weddings in my portfolio, it still surprises me how different each and every wedding day truly is. The menu you choose, the music you dance to, the color palette that inspires you - it all comes together on your wedding day to tell your story.


As your wedding photographer - and your new unofficial hype woman - I鈥檓 here to reassure you: your love story is unique and incredible and I will make sure your wedding photos remind you of that every day.

YOU CAN RELAX NOW, YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE

Amazing Photographer

I met Dana at a wedding in San Rafael. She was so helpful with the timeline and paid attention to detail when photographing the bride (making sure there weren't unpleasant distractions in the background). She had great energy and was honestly a pleasure to be around. I would definitely recommend her to all future brides! She was also lightning fast with some sneek peeks of the wedding LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!

A great artist

A true talent and an extreme kindness. Being a destination floral designer I see a ton of photos everyday, these photos stand the test of time! So clean and fresh! She is a true artist. Highly recommended.
Hope to see you again in Greece

Dana's the BEST!

I have endless nice things to say about Dana and her team. We initially reached out to Dana inquiring about her wedding day packages and were impressed with the lightning fast response time, the ease of use and clarity of her packages and of course her stunning photography! After an initial call, we felt like Dana was already a lifelong friend of ours and immediately knew this was the wedding photographer for us! Over the past year, Dana has sent us the sweetest welcome package, given us the best photos of us and our dog we've ever had, made us laugh and ensured to get every and I mean EVERY single one of the photos from our wedding we dreamed of. If you're looking for a Wedding Photographer who's a master of a light and airy look and getting family members to show their biggest smiles, Dana is the absolute best choice!

Owner/Photographer

Hey, it's Dana! I am the creater and owner of my pride and joy, Dana Arnold Photography. I am so thrilled you're here and are interested in me being your wedding photograper. I love to document weddings for those who serve (military, healthcare, and police). My favorite weddings are the ones that are intimate and show your love story, and my favorite couples are the ones who love to kick back, go with the flow, and are not afraid to be themselves!

If I am not shooting weddings, you'll find me on an airplane traveling with my husband, home on a sunday watching football, or hiking with friends during the week.
