We made a great decision for who shot our wedding!

I am beyond thrilled at the outcome of our photos for our amazing wedding day. Danette made everyone look so great. We now have photos of a lifetime, of everyone in our family, both candid and professional. Danette was so kind the whole time, easy to work with, came up with fantastic ideas for where to pose, things to do. I truly can't imagine the outcome being any better with anyone else. We chose our wedding date based upon Danette's availability and I am glad we did. Thank you, Danette!

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing! And did I mention...Amazing?!

Danette was an absolute pleasure to work with. From the moment we first talked to her to our big day, it was like talking to an old friend who really gets us :) She had excellent recommendations on locations and times and answered all of our questions. My boo and I are usually pretty awkward in pictures but Danette made us feel comfortable and relaxed. We had so much fun, which is exactly what we wanted to capture. The best part is that we feel like Danette really got us as a couple and was able to capture our essence. Our final images blew us away! They are so so beautiful...she even got the Thunderbirds in a shot!! How cool is that?! We definitely recommend Danette to anyone looking to make their day even more special.
