If you are looking for someone who is personal, fun, creative, relaxed, experienced, honest, and in love with what they do.... that's me! I truly appreciate the opportunity to share in capturing moments in time with my clients.
With parents in the event industry, I grew up with a camera in my hands. I joined yearbook in high school a grade before it was normally allowed. Event photography and portraiture just came naturally for me. I launched my business in 2006, at the age of 21, and since then I have enjoyed collaborating with other artists and vendors around the world. I am based in Central Florida but I am available to travel for weddings and events, and have my passport ready to go!
My style is a combination of photojournalism and traditional photography. My goal is to tell your story, so I want my clients to be able to relax and just enjoy the moment. I know how important photographs are, and my goal is to capture the best images that will keep you looking back, and reliving the memories for years to come!
PUBLICATION: My work is currently on display in the Smithsonian's Museum on Mainstreet Water/Ways traveling exhibit. My work has been displayed in Museums such as Musée de l'Élysée in Switzerland, as well as locally in art events such as Nude Night Orlando/Tampa, and RAW Artists Orlando. My work has hung in galleries such as Art Affair, Abbey, Funky Trunk Treasures, Newfangled and several bed & breakfasts. I have been published internationally in The Steampunk User's Manual, Illusion Magazine, BASE monthly, Photoshop Creative, Thrust Magazine, IST Magazine, Smithsonian Blog, Future Art Magazine, West Volusia Magazine, Volusia Style as well as in several newspapers.

Daniella shot my sisters wedding and I knew I wanted to use her after seeing my sister's pictures! She had never shot at the location I was having my wedding before, so she familiarized herself with it before hand! I have only seen a handful of pictures from her so far (my wedding was 2 days ago) but they are already amazing. can't wait to see the rest.Sent on 03/17/2015

While we haven't seen all of our pictures yes (there has to be more than a thousand!), the ones we have seen are awesome! She and her team have a creative eye and got some really cool shots. She is also a great value compared to some of the super overpriced photogs I looked at. I highly recommend her!Sent on 06/03/2011

Daniella provided more than we could ask for when she took our wedding pictures. They all turned out to be absolutely stunning, and I hear all the time from other brides, "I wish I had used her! I'm jealous of how much better your pictures are than mine!" So just book her. Now. Or you'll regret it forever and be one of those jealous ladies.Sent on 12/03/2012
Koontz Photography & Design's reply:Thank you Hannah!!! I had so much fun on your wedding! I loved the touches of yellow, and being able to shoot at the Sprague House. Every bride should do a first look like you and Joel did! You get such amazing pictures out of it and the whole wedding is so relaxed!
