Daniela Dawson is amazing!!! We were drawn to her from all of the unbelievably positive feedback we had read about her, and we could not have made a better choice!! She is incredibly professional, timely, friendly and a master of her craft. She braved one of the coldest days I think I've ever experienced with us to capture a winter wonderland photo session for our engagement photos, and they came out incredible. It was exactly what we had our hearts set on and more! We also have just gotten our wedding photos back (much sooner than anticipated) and they are PERFECT!!! She captured our special day perfectly and we are going to cherish the moments she's caught on film for the rest of our lives. She went above and beyond our expectations from day one and I would recommend her to ANYONE who's looking for a wedding photographer. She is the absolute best!!! Thank you Daniela!!!!

My husband and I were married this past September and I can honestly say that we both feel incredibly lucky to have found Daniela to be our photographer. She was an absolute delight to work with from day one. With all of the craziness of wedding planning, I never once thought twice about the photography element of the day knowing that Daniela had it all under control. She is so sweet and thoughtful and was a calming force through all our planning and on our wedding day. I’ve been a bridesmaid in other weddings where the photographers felt like a pushy presence during getting ready times or during portraits, but with Daniela it felt like having an awesome friend hanging around who also just happened to be taking your photos. Our entire family commented on how wonderful she was, and she handled photographing our 6 boisterous nephews and nieces with ease. Both my husband and I count as one of our favorite memories of our wedding day the part where we walked around doing our portraits with just Daniela. We had so much fun and she made us feel comfortable and natural, she helped to create and capture was a special moment of peace and fun for the two of us in the midst of a crazy day.
Her positive energy shines through in the photos. She really captures the feeling and emotions of the day. Looking through them I’m instantly transported back to the emotion of that day. What everyone says is true- your wedding day goes by SO fast. I truly cherish the photos Daniela took for us because they are memories made tangible. Her photos help us go back in time and actually feel it all over again. I know I’ll cherish these images, and the feeling she created for us through them, for the rest of my life. I’m so happy to have chosen Daniela and I look forward to the next excuse to hire a photographer just so I can work with her again!
Daniela was our photographer for our recent weeding on August 13th and the one word that comes to mind is... Wow! She works so hard and made the whole event very special. I am always nervous about taking photos and she immediately made us feel at ease, capturing fun, goofy moments and snapping hidden romantic/cute kisses of us that make the whole day feel "real" and less scripted. She's also wicked nice and a girl that I could easily share drinks with just and hang out! Thanks Daniela you made our day shine!
Daniela was, HANDS DOWN, the best vendor decision I made for my entire wedding. Not only is she tremendously talented, she is the sweetest soul you will ever meet. From start to finish, we were so pleased with her services.
We opted to take advantage of Daniela’s complimentary engagement session. We met out by Beavertail Lighthouse (apparently one of her favorite spots around town). This was really the first time that my husband and I had taken pictures of this nature so, of course, we were just a little anxious going into it all. Daniela made everything SO easy, fun, and relaxed. The very next day she sent over a few sneak peak pics from the engagement session. The photos were STUNNING. It made me even more excited to have her as my photographer!
On the day of the wedding Daniela showed up and we just had a brief conversation about any of the pictures I specifically wanted. I also gave her a list of my “need to have” pics. She made sure that all of these were taken. Further, we did all of our family/wedding party pics BEFORE the ceremony, which was probably the greatest idea ever. My wedding party was actually able to enjoy cocktail hour while my husband and I snagged just a few more shots we wanted. I would also like to note that it can sometimes be difficult herding a large group of people and also fitting them into one picture with a cohesive look. Daniela was a master at this and, again, just such a sweet and calm presence.
During the actually wedding Daniela walked around with a big smile on her face. When I received my pictures I was just floored. I knew that they were going to be good because I already saw the engagement pics but the wedding pics just blew everything out of the water. She captured every intricate detail so beautifully.
I’m so grateful I hired Daniela! She is a genuinely kind, wonderful, TALENTED person. If you can snag Daniela for your wedding, DO SO ASAP! It will be your best wedding decision too!!!
My fiance and I worked with Daniela for our engagement pictures and she was amazing to work with. From the moment we first reached out to her, she was very accommodating. She was lots of fun to work with and has a warm personality. When we arrived at the park for our photo session, she treated us like long time friends. She has a wonderful eye for scenery that provides for spectacular pictures. 5 minutes into the shoot, we were so comfortable with her that my fiance and I were easily able to be natural and this is when Daniela's talent shines. She is able to capture moments that happen naturally which adds so much more meaning to the photographs in the long run. We were stunned when we received the final pictures. Her work is beautiful and elegant. I would highly recommend Daniela to everyone!
Daniela was one of our favorite vendors to work with during our wedding. She's super sweet, very responsive, and most importantly, takes some awesome photos! From the day we reached out, she was welcoming and worked with us to ensure our day would be special. She understood our style was more candid and natural, not the typical "staged" photos at weddings, which is her definitely in her wheelhouse! We loved the shots she captured for our engagement photos and wedding, and we're so glad that we've got so many beautiful images that captured an amazing day. The photos came to us super quick as well! She's got a great artistic eye and helped us find some unique areas for photos. She also helped keep our day on track which was super helpful as well - she would touch base with us on things that might affect our timeline (which she knew we were worried about) and she made sure we had an amazing day, catching all the things the bride and groom can be too busy to see. We were so happy to have Daniela photograph all of the great moments of our wedding day, and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!
Daniela photographed our wedding in rural Vermont, and took our engagement photos in and around the Boston Public Library. We really hadn't decided on a wedding photographer by the time Daniela took the engagement photos, but those photos sealed the deal; we immediately invited her to photograph our wedding.
The wedding photos, and the process of taking them, blew us away. She captured the happiness of the guests, captured the love between two of us, and captured the beauty of the scenery. She also managed to capture all the tiny details that we put time into for the ceremony and the reception; it is so great that we will be able to remember all of these little personal touches years down the road.
And she's so fun! Taking all these photos was a pure joy. I didn't think it was possible to simultaneously pose a number of photos AND have the whole experience feel spontaneous and fun. Daniela pulled it off perfectly. It was simply fun to have her around on the special day, especially after we had gotten to know her during our engagement shoot.
You should book her for your engagement shoot and/or wedding before the rest of the world does.
Daniela was amazing! We hired her for our wedding in Newport and she captured so many wonderful moments from the day. As we go through the photographs it's impossible to choose the favorites. She was great to work with, super responsive and professional. We loved her, are super happy with are photos and so grateful we were lucky enough to have her part of our wedding. I would recommend her to any couple!
Where do I begin??? First, Daniela is the cutest freaking thing in the east - which doesn't necessarily mean she's a good photographer, but it's a twofer - because she is a great photographer!! She was so professional and sweet during each and every transaction. She had our photos ready SO quick! During the wedding, I could hardly tell she was the photographer. I have a hard time getting my picture taken, and she made the post-wedding photo shoot seem so casual and didn't make either of us feel awkward or feel like we were actually being photographed. However, she was totally amazing about giving us direction! Can't recommend her services enough!! An added bonus - her boyfriend was our DJ!! He was also such a dream to work with!!! Such an adorable little duo! Thank you so much Daniela for being such a wonderful addition to our special day!!
From start to finish, Daniela was so easy to work with! She balanced being personable and professional, and did an excellent job. Starting with our meet & greet/engagement shoot (which my husband was not excited for), she made taking photos natural and easy, which made our wedding day simple and smooth. She is graceful and sweet, just like her pictures! Our wedding day ended up being a bit more chaotic than planned due to the weather, we had a last minute change and had to move our ceremony outside to inside, and Daniela was more helpful than most! She quietly assisted but it certainly did not go unnoticed, and we are so grateful she was our photographer! She went above and beyond expectation, if you are considering, consider yourself lucky to have her!
Firstly, Daniela is a lovely person and a pleasure to work with. Secondly, she is a wonderful photographer. She strikes the perfect balance between being warm and personable while also remaining professional. She took beautiful engagement photos of us as well as wedding photos and made us feel comfortable even though we felt quite silly in front of the camera. I love how her photos have a natural and ethereal feel. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a fabulous photographer in the new england area!
Daniela is amazing! We did a lot of research into Boston area wedding photographers and were unimpressed with so many we communicated with. From the very first communication, Daniela was just what we were looking for: laid back, confident, open and communicative. We met with her in person and immediately hired her. Her photos showed her range and artistic talent. Everything was perfect. The photos she took captured the essence of the day. They are not just a series snapshots capturing events. Each photo could stand alone on its artistic merit. They tell the story of the wedding. We couldn't be happier!
What can I say? Daniela is just the BEST! She photographed our July wedding and we could not have asked for a better experience from beginning to end. She made us feel comfortable and made picture-taking an easy, stress free experience. She captured all the big moments, but even more special, Daniela manages to photograph the quiet candid moments you may have otherwise missed. Her work is simply beautiful - we could not recommend her more. Thank you, Daniela!
Wishing I could choose more stars...5 just isn't enough. Boa and I are so so so lucky to have found Daniela. Everything about working with Daniela from our initial chat to meeting each other for the first time at the engagement shoot to our wedding day and seeing our gorgeous wedding photos was beyond perfection. She was so much fun to work with and she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We had a blast shooting together.
Throughout the whole process Daniela was so communicative & professional and her quick turnaround for both the engagement shoot and our wedding photos blew us both away. So happy we made a friend and to know that we'll be in the best hands for any future shoots ;)
It's been a year since we had our wedding and I was too busy to write this review. However, now that my sister is getting married and asked for a good photographer I remembered how awesome Daniela was! She was so easy and fun to work with. My husband hates posing so she didn't make us do poses and let us just be ourselves while she took many pictures and they are beautiful!
Daniela is Amazing! Super friendly and very professional. On top of all of that, I felt like I had her as my close friend at my wedding. She captured our special day in photos that will leave us with lasting memories. Thank you Daniela, We will definitely recommend you!
We met Daniela through a friend of a coworker when our original photographer we had booked backed out 6 months before our wedding date. Having vetted many recommendations from helpful friends, coworkers and family members we connected best with Daniela’s sense of photography style. Once we finally met Daniela in person and she answered my laundry list of questions we knew she was a match for us. Budget concerns were high on our list of priorities as we were paying for our wedding ourselves but Daniela’s pricing was both reasonable and the quality of photos she took were exceptional. Being an event planner by trade she consistently answered my frequent emails leading up to our wedding day with both patience and thoughtfulness.
Once the big day arrived we trusted and felt confident that Daniela would capture our day perfectly and she did. She did her thing and also took direction from me (wanna be Photographer/ Pinterest addict). The end result was beyond what we could have imagined and the photos we will treasure for a lifetime. If you are looking for a talented, laid back photographer who is probably the sweetest person ever, Daniela is your girl. We have already begun recommending her and hope to use her again in the future for other life moments.
Daniela is a absolute pleasure to be around, she produces the most amazing wedding photographs, she has a sparkling personality and will bring even more joy to your wedding day! She was able to capture the intimate moments of the day, the fun and excitement, the photos she took were perfect! I don't like having my photo taken and I rarely like the photos that are taken of me, it was a very pleasant surprise to love all of the photos Daniela took! You will not be disappointed with Daniela, we are thrilled with our choice! On top of all that, the cost of her service is very reasonable and well worth the money and much more.
Daniela added so much joy to our wedding...and now we also get to enjoy many beautiful memories thanks to her! My husband and I are so lucky to have found Daniela--neither of us is very comfortable in front of the camera, but Daniela made us feel incredibly at ease and we ended up having a ton of fun with her during our engagement photo shoot and at our wedding. Daniela is creative, sweet, professional, and she provided us with absolutely gorgeous end products. If you are looking for a low-key, positive presence at your wedding, Daniela is the perfect choice. She quietly captured all of the moments we hoped she would, and went above and beyond during every step of our work with her. As a testament to how great she is to work with, one of my bridesmaids has hired Daniela for her upcoming wedding! I would recommend Daniela for any engaged couple--she truly added a lot to our wedding day and we're thrilled with our photos.
We met Daniela Dawson at another wedding and was impressed by her work. She does both photography and videography, but we only chose photographs for our wedding.
She was everywhere. She sent us a DVD of over 500 of our best photos and she would have taken more if I had asked. Now, we have to go through the task of picking what we want for the relatives.
I had children at the wedding, so I don't know how she did it, but she coaxed them to stay still long enough for some stills. No easy thing to do when it comes to kids. The relaxed photos are great. You can see some of them on FB.
She has a great work ethic and lots of energy. You will love working with her.
Daniela and Emma were the photographers at our wedding in July. Going with Daniela and Emma was one of the best wedding planning decisions we made by far! Daniela is very professional and wonderful to work with. My then-fiance-now-husband and I were super excited after meeting them for the first time. (They suggested starting a pinterest board to organize my vision for our wedding photos--finally, a legitimate reason for nonstop pinning!) Daniela is clearly very passionate about photography and loves her job, and it shows through her work. I was picky when it came to photography, and I was so excited by how our photos turned out. Daniela and Emma captured the emotions of intimate moments beautifully, but they were completely non-intrusive and I don't remember cameras being around at all. I really loved having them around at our wedding, they were a really calming presence throughout all the chaos! I really can't recommend them enough.
The day of the wedding had many chaotic moments, but Daniela was a wonderful calming presence. After our honeymoon, Daniela dropped by with our wedding photos. Every bride has trouble remembering the details after the whirlwind day of the wedding. Looking through our photos was like reliving our wedding day without the stress, and I instantly teared up. Daniela and Emma had managed to capture everything, from the raw emotions down to the details of our centerpieces. There were even dramatic shots of our friends breakdancing and chest-bumping in midair on the dance floor!
My husband and I are so happy that we got to know Daniela and Emma. If you're looking for photographers for your event, you can't go wrong with Daniela Dawson.
Daniela is the sweetest person you will ever meet! Her photography skills are amazing and she is wonderful to work with! We had our engagement photos and wedding photos captured by her and couldn't be happier! She is always prompt and on time, makes you feel relaxed while being photographed, and is very flexible about anything you might like to do. I'd highly recommend her for any photographs you need taken, you won't be disappointed!
I cannot imagine trusting lifetime memories to someone other than Daniela. Her personality makes you instantly comfortable and she brought out the best in my fiancé and I. She is based out of Boston and we are from NH but were married on Cape Cod. She was more than willing to travel up to NH and down to the Cape. She took our engagement pictures as well as our wedding pictures. We did our engagement shoot at Mines Falls Park in NH and she gladly came along for the hike. We were climbing trees, standing on river stones and above waterfalls. The shots she took from that day were absolutely stunning. Her concepts of light, angles and focus made for some great fun shots. Everything was easy and fun and the same could be said for our wedding day. Both families were commenting on what a great personality she had, how professional she was and how excited they were to see the wedding pictures are viewing the ones from our engagement shoot. When you work with Daniela you own all of your pictures (which is almost unheard of) and her photo packages are beyond reasonable priced. She does amazing work, all of you will have fun, and my fiancé and I were so impressed she was able to capture our personalities perfectly.
We love Daniela!! She did both our engagement and wedding photos, and I must say, they look AMAZING! She absolutely understands how to take a beautiful picture, and you can tell in her work! She is very responsive, flexible, and just simply amazing to work with. She was one of the BEST experiences with a vendor we had for our entire wedding. She just made us feel comfortable, really allowing us to be ourselves, which helped our photos come out GREAT! I took these pics to work and everyone cannot believe how beautiful they came out, both the engagement and the wedding photos. Brides, call Daniela! She is easy to work with, take beautiful photos, and is a great value!
