I’m Dani, a super fun, really laid back, sometimes messy wedding photographer in Maryland. My style is relaxed to the point where I am talking to you a bunch behind my camera – perfect for anyone who thinks having their photo taken is legit the most awkward thing ever - because let's get real it is. The minute someone puts a camera up to their face, there is instant tension. I break down that tension and help to create natural and fun photos. On a wedding day, I blend in as one of the guests, trying to find the craziest person on the dance floor and getting fun photos of everyone having a great time. For everything else, I have no problem making an absolute fool of myself to get you to smile - kiddos too. No animal noise is off limits although I do have trouble with elephant sounds. I try to make it as fun as possible for all involved.

I knew I wanted to hire Dani as soon as I saw her work on her website. She is so warm and friendly and works quickly and efficiently to capture everyone's personality. My husband can be really shy and she worked to make him comfortable so that we could finally get pictures of him smiling. We got a few pictures the day after our wedding and received so so many compliments about her work. I cannot imagine having hired another photographer.Sent on 01/28/2020

Beautiful photos and we had a blast!
Dani was the absolute best and we loved, loved working with her! She is down to earth and so easy to work with and her photos were just beautiful. My husband and I both loved the idea of doing engagement and wedding photoshoots and wanted great photos, but were worried it would be awkward at first! But nope! Dani make us feel super comfortable and made us laugh, and captured our most genuine moments and we are so sad it's over!! If we could give her ten stars and take her around with us wherever we go, we would. She really was phenomenal and our photos are beautiful.Sent on 12/17/2019

My daughter selected Dani Leigh Photography to photograph her wedding.
Photography is probably the only area where past performance is on full display to allow an independent, personal assessment of style and creativity. There are many great photographers, and once you narrow it down to the true artists, it literally comes down to: you know it when you see it. That was the case with Dani. In discussions, it was obvious that she was as personable as she was professional. Our daughter and her fiancé first met Dani for the engagement shoot at Patapsco State Park. They immediately clicked and Dani picked perfect settings. The next meeting was on the day of the wedding. Dani mixed right in with everyone, and somehow she was always at the right place at the right time from early morning at the Marriott until the very late in the evening at The Peabody Library. It was clear that she enjoys being creative in the way she setup and captured the very emotional first look and all the fun as the wedding parties met for the first time. It also seems obvious that she took full advantage of the full capability of her state-of-the-art equipment in capturing not just the highlights, but the essence of the entire day. Of particular importance are poses captured upon the wedding party’s arrival and advance look at the reception setting, which stunningly captured all the elation amidst the unequalled elegance of The Peabody. Since that is something that only the wedding party took part in, pictures are critical, and Dani nailed it!Sent on 11/20/2019
Great eye, amazing quality and easy to work with - Dani Leigh Photography should be your first stop when shopping for photographers. Not only does she have an impressive roster of celebrity clients but she is affordable, creative and works with me to get the best angle at each event. Thanks again for everything!
