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.

Everything we hoped for and more
Danielle is fantastic! Prior to working with Danielle I was more or less convinced I'd never take a picture I liked. Once I saw our engagement photos all my concerns were washed away. It was truly a gift to know that Danielle would be able to capture our wedding day exactly how we had hoped. She reads her clients super well, and adapts her style to make it work. She even notices small things like, when I was feeling fatigued from pics, brings humor when needed and just makes you feel so at ease. I feel so lucky we were able to score Danielle for our wedding. Thank you Danielle!Sent on 09/02/2019

Awesome time working with Danielle
We were lucky to work with Danielle over 2 days for our wedding weekend where she captured both our western and Indian wedding ceremonies at Nestldown and Fairmont San Jose. Danielle knows Nestldown intimately well and our pictures reflect that. She knew where to find the best lighting, the best angles, and the best poses. We could not be happier!Sent on 05/31/2019
On the following day at the Fairmont Hotel in downtown San Jose, Danielle captured the Baraat, and the ceremony, and kindly stayed some extra time to get large family portraits of our families.
Danielle made us feel comfortable from our first interaction over the phone and was also very responsive via email in the weeks leading up with the big weekend. She gets the pictures you want and the ones you didn't know you wanted! And of course, the pictures turned out stunning. We love them so much we still look at them almost daily after 2 months...
Danielle captured our special weekend with timeless photos and we couldn't be more pleased!

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.Sent on 01/30/2019
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.
