Outstanding in every way
The experience that my husband and I had with Danielle was seamless, fun, and our photos were absolutely gorgeous! She is an amazing and creative photographer and has such a beautiful personality. Our experience was fantastic, from our engagement shoot all the way to our wedding day! Her photography skills and editing style is so current yet timeless and just breathtaking. When it came to the other admin details, contacting Danielle was simple and easy with no hassles or confusion. She is the real deal and you can’t find any better!Sent on 09/29/2019

Dani was absolutely perfect from start to finish!Sent on 01/09/2019
Months before the wedding, she suggested that I share my Pinterest Wedding Photography folder with her so she knew what style of photos we were looking for. From there, she began building our shot list. Dani researched any photo styles she wasn’t familiar with (e.g., sparkler exit photos) and executed them flawlessly. She even knew when “golden hour” was for our exact location (longitude and latitude) and captured the most beautiful pictures of my husband and I as the sun was setting and the light was perfect!
Dani came to the wedding location early to catch “getting ready photos” and showed up with a chai tea latte (my favorite) in hand for the bride (me). Dani was there from start to finish and stayed all day (12+ hours) to capture all our important moments. She made us feel at ease, positioned us when necessary, and even had trick phrases designed to capture natural reactions, smiles, or bellowing laughter, whether she said them to us or had the bride and groom whisper them to each other. She was a pro at capturing real smiles despite our family of cheesy smilers and serial blinkers.
After the wedding, Dani produced edited highlight photos in 48 hours for us to share with friends and family. She proceeded to sort through 2500+ pictures in one week! During that process, she eliminated duplicates and provided 900+ photos with basic edits to us for our review. She edited everything we asked and even photoshopped Stormtroopers, AT-AT, and TIE Fighter (Star Wars figures) into the background of a fun Bridal Party photo, making it look like we were on the run from the Empire. She even performed a miracle when I realized after the wedding that I had forgot to add shot to the shot list. She made the bride (me) disappear from a photo of grandparents and I. My family didn’t have a nice photo of the two of them together that wasn’t 20+ years old and Dani made it possible.
Within a few months, she had edited all our photos to make sure they came out perfectly. When I realized after the wedding that I wished I had provided Dani with more items for “detail” shots (e.g., my shoes, hair piece, veil, invitations), she had me provide them to her and she took 76 pictures of everything! They all came out extraordinarily! She even ordered some flowers I had had in my bouquet to use in the photoshoot! When we (my family and us) wanted prints and Christmas cards done, Dani helped us order them and only charged us the cost of the prints/cards. She even did a quality control check and worked with the printers to have some photos reprinted when the color didn’t come out perfectly the first time.
Our only regret is that we didn’t write this review sooner! Definitely consider Dani as your wedding photographer (or any other photographer you might need).
Simply Rustic Photography's reply:Thank you Danielle! I still look back on the day with fondness. Thank you so much for hiring me for that day! I had so much fun with you and Max and getting to know your families! I will talk with you soon, I hope WA is treating you well!
