Daniel is a bit different from other wedding/portrait photographers. He spends his time during the day as a High School teacher teaching AP Biology, Living Environment, and STEM Project Based Learning. Having a love for imagery since his teenage years, he started shooting and editing images just for fun. Working on his own projects day and night soon expanded to working with other people who needed imagery work done. Saving up for his first DSLR, he finally bought one at the age of 20, and the rest is history. When he's not changing the lives of his students, he is working on perfecting his craft of story telling. He chooses to stay part-time in order to keep his passion fresh, handling each story with special care and affection. With an eclectic background of work (sports, portraiture, fashion, landscape, and video) and recognition from various magazines, brands, and artists, he now chooses to focus on love. With years of developing his skill, he has become a technician of class and elegance, striving to push past even his best works.

Dan at the DV Image is nothing short of amazing. After seeing some of Dan's work and meeting with him a few times, I decided to take a leap of faith and put my trust in him to photograph our destination wedding in Costa Rica. I need to mention that this was Dan's first destination wedding and he was traveling and shooting our 95 person wedding ALONE! He was wonderful with all of our wedding guests as he essentially spent the weekend mingling with all of us when he wasn't working. I cannot even begin to describe the amount of dedication and effort he puts forth when taking photos. You truly can tell that he puts his heart and soul into the work that he does, and it definitely shows when you receive your breathtakingly gorgeous photos. My wedding guests still a year later comment on how great and hard working our photographer was. I don't even know how it is possible that our photos came out so perfect, we get comments all the time that our photos looked like they were straight out of a magazine. Again, a year later people are still talking about them. I honestly have no idea how only one person dealing with a bride, groom and a wedding party of 16 plus 80 additional guests was able to be in so many places at once. There is not one photo my husband and I don't like. He nailed them all from scenery, to getting ready, the ceremony, family, wedding party and bride and groom portraits, reception details AND the day after shoot. I always said that when I look at my wedding photos I want to be reminded of all the emotions I felt that day/weekend and be transported back to those moments. Dan delivered that and more!

Daniel Verley was accommodating when we were uncertain of our location for engagement photos and he was helpful in choosing where we took photos. Daniel was full of ideas and also allow us to exercise our ideas as well for our photos that we thought would look nice. He was amazing and thoughtful. I would recommend his talent to anyone who needs a photographer. I have attached photos that he had taken of us and also photos (on my terrible phone camera) that I have taken.

I highly recommend “The DV Image” for photography of any kind. Daniel has an artistic eye that catches and creates the moments we all want to have in our photo albums. He’s very professional, friendly, and dependable. He seems to be prepared for all things and plans ahead. During our photo shoot, he was able to guide us and make suggestions that took our pictures to the next level. Every photo is unique and it’s obvious he paid attention to the details. So far, (because there will definitely be more moments to come) my husband and I have worked with “The DV Image” for business headshots, our gender reveal photo, and most recently our wedding ceremony and photo shoot. If you want memorable photos to capture the moments you want to last forever “The DV Image” is the way to go!
