    Wow! WOW! WOW!!!!

    From our very first call, I KNEW Danieka was the photographer for us. She was flexible -- and in an age of COVID and crazy planning, I can't stress ENOUGH how important flexibility and empathy has been -- and really focused on what WE wanted. She has this incredible thread of creativity, sending me sample photos and inspirations of shots that were unique and not like the standard "cheesy wedding pose photos" you see all over Pinterest. Unlike other photographers we talked to, Danieka was more concerned about our style, our goals and what we wanted...so that she could bring ideas that would make every moment OURS. While others just sent us previous portfolios...Danieka was sending us examples of sets and set ups from editorial spreads along with examples of other amazing moments she had created with other couples.

    I am a bit of an organizer, and poor Danieka got spreadsheet upon spreadsheet of photos, requests and detail. She was just lovely...all smiles and laughter as I just kept color coding tabs. Poor Danieka! LOL!!!

    On the day, she was in all the spots to capture all THE moments. We ended up getting "married" on Zoom on the original date we had picked that, thanks to Covid, swerved our plans sideways. So instead of a wedding ceremony...we just pretended it took our guests MONTHS to drive to the reception. She was there, without question or hesitation, rescheduled and ready to roll...with an eye for every moment of joy and celebration.

    I can't say enough about Danieka other than this...you WILL NOT REGRET having Danieka be part of your day. She isn't just there to snap photos that look like everyone else's wedding album. She is there to capture YOU and all the joy, laughter and special moments that will happen between you and your friends and loved ones.

    Flexible Service and Amazing Pictures!

    COVID-19 had us changing and updating our wedding plans almost up until the day of! Throughout all of it, Danieka was professional, flexible, thoughtful, and responsive. While we were unsure of many details, we were never unsure of our decision to work with her! We were delighted to go through the pictures and see the thought that went into capturing the big moments and little details of our day. We were nervous about being in front of a camera, but Danieka did an excellent job of making us feel comfortable and most importantly, like ourselves. Don't hesitate to work with such a sweet and professional photographer!
