I’m sure right now it’s hard to believe, but there will come a time when your wedding won’t be on your mind every moment. After the flowers fade, the cake has long disappeared, you will need something to bring you back to that day. The day when everyone stopped and smiled at you in your dress, when you saw him not fidget in that tux. I want pictures from that day to be your own personal artwork. Whether it’s on the wall in a wonderful print, on the table in a flush mount album, not just tucked away on an online album. Each image should bring back a story from the moment. From that very first kiss as a married couple, because kisses matter.
I work with a casual but professional manner, ensuring your images are those moments you want to capture, not merely a snapshot. I work primarily from Northern Virginia right on up to the Jersey Shore, but I’m centered in Washington DC. We will work together from the beginning, talking about the details, we'll plan an engagement session so your comfort and preferences will be with me on your wedding day.
The trend in boutique wedding photography is bringing the images back to being centered on the couple. While those table settings will always be darling, that fleeting moment a father looks at his child and remembers the first time he held them as he now walks them down the aisle, will be more dear as time moves on. Facebook is fantastic for groomsmen looking crazy, they're bred to be that way, but photography with us is meant to be on the walls of your childrens home one day, and you know they won't hang pictures of mason jars.

Daniel was absolutely wonderful, start to finish. From our very first phone conversation, wherein I peppered him with questions for over an hour, to Day-Of reassurance and after-the-fact follow-up, Daniel was patient, good-humored, and professional without being stiff. In addition to his photography skills, he offered various bits of welcome advice on everything from where to stay on our honeymoon (in Rome!) to good Rehearsal Dinner spots.
Daniel's work speaks for itself, but let me say - it is amazing, ranging from intimate, vignette-type portraits to architecturally-framed backdrops, sure to stun. His eye for detail and work with lighting are truly remarkable.
We hired Daniel for both our engagement session and our wedding, and are thrilled with the results. Personality-wise, he meshed well with us, and we felt quickly at ease with his easy-going, jokester manner. Daniel kept me on-track and calm Day-Of, without ever being overbearing or bossy. Even after my wedding, when I needed to vent a bit, he offered an ear and good advice. He is an all-around good guy and an absolutely amazing photographer. I can't recommend him enough!

Daniel was absolutely amazing! He was willing to work with us from day one and helped us through the entire process, from meeting us at the beach for our engagement photos to the big day! Our photos are so beautiful and he captured every moment. I could not have asked for better shots! I highly recommend Daniel to anyone, he is totally worth it and will beautifully capture all your memorable moments!
Daniel was more than just a photographer on our Wedding day. All the groomsmen boutonnieres were pinned upside down and incorrectly. Daniel stepped in to pin the boutonnieres correctly and save the day. He gets to know you and the entire wedding party on a personal level. Daniel was involved in the entire wedding and made the day go seamlessly.

Daniel is an absolute professional and expert in his field. His eye for the best shot is uncanny and his style is very natural – none of his pictures are forced/cheesy – instead his pictures capture the best of his subjects in a very real way. The end result is pictures that evoke emotional responses and bring you back to the big day just by looking at them.
In addition to all of the above, from a practical standpoint, Daniel is also very good at “herding cats” which is something that you will need him to do on your big day (especially if you have a lot of different family/friends attending). He is in charge without being bossy and somehow manages to get everyone where they need to be while having a good time doing it. Bottom line, Daniel is the best at what he does and I highly recommend him!
