Based in San Francisco Bay Area and Bend Oregon.
I believe in love that lasts a lifetime. Weddings truly are a celebration of life and I love to be a part of them! Each time I photograph a new beginning I remind myself of the vows I pledged just a few years ago to my best friend. I am so blessed to photograph your special day. I am infatuated with photography and everything about it. I love looking at pictures. I love taking pictures and I love capturing a fleeting moment in time that will last a lifetime.
As a wedding photographer I believe in the importance of building a good relationship of friendship with my clients both for their wedding day and for years to come. No two couples or weddings are alike and it is a joy to photograph the uniqueness in every detail of the day. I get to know each couple and build a relationship you. This means that your story will be filled with genuine smiles and real moments.
I love long summer days and being barefoot in the grass, food trucks fridays , traveling off the beaten path, fields of wildflowers, farmers markets, and the sound of hearing my baby giggle. I dream of having an old farm house and raising my family in the country. I am a wife to my amazing husband Jeff, who is my best friend, biggest supporter, and who continuously brings laughter to our family. I am a new mother to my two energetic, determined, book worm loving, and extremely adorable children Landon and Jada.
I have a degree in photojournalism and my photographs have been featured in a variety of books, magazines and publications. I share my photography love with other non profit organizations and I love to use the gift to educate others. Wether I am documenting a well being dug in Central America, a bike being built in Africa or photographing your wedding I am look forward to sharing your adventure.

Knows her Outdoor Weddings
Danielle is so talented and kind. My fiancé and I really enjoyed working with her on both our engagement and wedding photos. She has a real talent for capturing nature and landscapes in tandem with portraits. One thing we really love about Danielle is her amazing use of light. Even though we had a winter wedding, the photos are bright, airy, and warm. With the trend of dark and moody in Central Oregon, it was refreshing to have our photos be so striking and light. Danielle made us feel so comfortable on both our engagement shoot and wedding day and we are so in love with all our photos.

Everyone says choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important pieces of planning your wedding. It was really easy for me after seeing Danielle's work and after meeting with her that she would be my first choice. She is very easy going, professional, and does not pressure you into anything.
We got married in San Rafael and Danielle came with her assistant, Brianna, who was also fantastic. They showed up right on time, calm and ready to get to work. This was another thing that I loved about Danielle was that she was so calm and relaxed and fun to be around. You don't realize how much time you spend with your photographer on your wedding day so it's important you like being around them. Again, even at our wedding venue (which she had not photographed at before), Danielle found some really cool places to shoot at. We got married in a courtyard type of setting, but we have wedding pictures from around the property that make it look like we were in a forest, at an old house, near palm trees. It's amazing how she was able to make all of the property at our venue look so beautiful, not to mention us! Some of the other things I was pleasantly surprised with was how many pictures she got of our guests at the reception.

Danielle is a true gem! She is extremely artistic with light and nature. Book well in advance. We were very lucky that Danielle was available for our Sunday wedding. If you have a photo site in mind, be sure to discuss it in advance to make sure light, etc. is in your favor. If you have poses in mind, don't forget to bring them up. In all the craziness of our big day, I forgot a handful of poses I wanted. We weren't too concerned about the portraits, but if you want them all very formal (hands on hips, hands clasped in front/back, straight down), be sure to ask Danielle or her assistant to direct people.
Danielle's work is always beautiful. I knew right after we worked on our first wedding together that she has an amazing ability for capturing the details. Not afraid to get her hands dirty, she will go the extra mile to make sure that she gets photos that will be memorable.
