My name is Daniella Koontz and I am the owner of Koontz Photography. I am your personal point of contact from beginning to end. This means I will be here to answer all your questions, I’ll be the one who photographs you and the one who edits your images.

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.

My style is a combination of photojournalism and lifestyle photography. My goal is to tell your story, so I want my clients to be able to relax and just enjoy the day. 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!

Besides the technical skills that I’ve developed over time, countless classes, seminars, and workshops; I can relate to a client’s needs on multiple personal levels, which means I can bring my personal experience to each session.

Being a wife, I’ve been in a bride’s shoes planning a wedding. I’ve been on the other side of the camera trying to plan family photos. I wholeheartedly understand the stress of trying to find the time, make decisions, and organize it all.

Being a mother has taught me patience, and organizational skills, and has trained me to become a better problem solver. I always strive to make the experience fun for the entire family. I will do anything to make children feel at ease. Even if that means pulling out my killer Blue’s Clues impression, Baby Shark song and dance, or engaging them in questions about their favorite superheroes.

When you book with me, you are getting more than someone to “press a button”, you are investing in an experienced friend. I will be there next to you every step of the way, from helping with your outfit, picking out gorgeous locations, and helping you wrangle family, friends, and pets.

Best photographer ever!

Koontz Photography shot my wedding back in January, which makes this review WAY WAY overdue, especially considering the five star, A++, over the moon and out of this world job they did for us. Hiring a photographer for my wedding was one of the things I was most anxious about, because they were going to be up close and personal with me the whole day. As a plus size bride with nerdy tastes, I was extremely intimidated by the picture perfect blush and cream industry, and I've also always been a little self conscious in front of the camera. I wanted to find a photographer who had experience shooting plus side brides (who knew how to get the flattering angles!!) but also someone who I could vibe with and not feel judged by at some of my most vulnerable moments. I found Daniella on Offbeat Bride (now Offbeat wed) and it was honestly the best moment! My fiance and I knew IMMEDIATELY after looking over her website that her pictures and vibe were exactly what we were looking for, something that was only confirmed by messaging her and receiving an IMMEDIATE response (almost within an hour). That responsiveness is something that Danielle kept up throughout the entire process. She helped me brainstorm my engagement photo session (I wanted something truly unique t o us) and helped us settle on something that was absolutely perfect while also being achievable. When we finally met her, I knew we'd made the absolute right choice. The engagement session was SO MUCH FUN, and I honestly had trouble not laughing through every photo (which made my happiness shine through on the beautiful photos. After that point, it became clear that it wasn't even a choice that we have her shoot our wedding day, it was absolutely IMPERATIVE. On the day off, Danielle and her second photographer Jenn, were an absolute blast. I was so nervous at so many points but the two of them immediately put me at ease. Posing for them was fun and silly instead of stiff and formal, which was definitely a way better experience for the wedding day. Danielle was extremely organized when taking all the combination of group photos, and even managed to catch some of the best pictures of my aging father I've ever seen—he is notoriously grumpy-faced in photos, but she captured so much laughter and happy moments! The results (which were delivered remarkably fast after the wedding) were beyond beautiful and perfect, and she put together a little bonus reel on instagram that I wasn't expecting that actually made my husband and I change what we consider 'our song'. Overall, I cannot recommend Koontz photography enough. It was the one of the best decisions I made and I'm so, so grateful for the beautiful gifts she's given me so I can look back and remember the best day of my life. THANK YOU!!!

Outstanding!

I can not say enough wonderful things about Daniella and her team. Professional, prompt, and sweet! We could not be more thrilled with the way our pictures turned out. We are so thankful we found her and will definitely be using her again for family photos down the road. Thank you so much Daniella!!

Wonderfully easy to work with and amazing photos

Daniella was absolutely perfect! She was accommodating, professional, easy-going, and skilled in both our engagement and wedding photos. She ensured we got the best edits in our photos and even removed perfectly an entire vehicle from some of our shots of us walking down the aisle that would have otherwise ruined those photos! She has been nothing but understanding and knew just what to do to get us comfortable with her. I look forward to having her photograph every life event we have!
