Danielle was AMAZING to work with from start to finish! Our original 150+ August 2020 Finger Lakes wedding had to be re-worked due to COVID-19 into a micro-wedding with just 16 total people. When I reached out to Danielle about this, she had no problem with changing our original package to an hourly package (and we still got edited photos!) so we could cover our details, ceremony, family formals, and part of our reception (to get shots of cake cutting and toasts). We received all the photos back WAY earlier than expected, which was great and they turned out so beautifully! I'm so happy with how they turned out and that we didn't cancel having a photographer this year! Leading up to the wedding, Danielle was super responsive and always happy to answer any questions I had. She was fantastic to work with the day of and was super organized. Danielle is so sweet and I am so glad that we're able to work with her again for our 2021 planned reception!Sent on 08/31/2020

Danielle is amazing!
Danielle photographed our NYE wedding and did an amazing job. She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and captured tons of natural, candid photos which was exactly what we were looking for. Danielle was responsive and friendly throughout the entire process. I would recommend her to all of my friends getting married in the Upstate NY region!!Sent on 02/18/2020

I had worked with Danielle for senior pictures and family pictures before, so when we got engaged she was one of the first people we contacted. She’s very responsive and flexible – we had a few ideas about places we wanted to take pictures at and ended up changing a couple of things the day of due to weather, and she also ended up staying at the reception later than planned. She was great at giving direction while still making us feel completely comfortable and natural in front of the camera. It was unseasonably cold the day of our wedding, and very windy in one of the spots we wanted to take pictures at, and she was constantly checking in to make sure we were still comfortable, not too cold, etc. She also took some gorgeous pictures in our church that were just as beautiful as our outdoor pictures, and captured some incredible candid photos throughout the day in addition to the formal ones. There were several couples at our wedding who had used her at their own weddings, and they were all so excited to see her! We also chose to have a second photographer to photograph the groom getting ready and the ceremony, and she was awesome as well! We are so happy with the way our pictures came out and the beautiful moments they captured, and would recommend anyone planning a wedding to book with Danielle!Sent on 12/08/2019
