There are a lot of opinions, options, and questions that come along with planning a wedding. In the process of picking out food, a wedding dress, flowers, dj, etc. - it suddenly dawns on you just how important it's going to be to have someone you trust there to capture all these elements you and your fiance selected. So how do you figure out what makes someone the best wedding photographer for you?
Here are a few things you should know about me:
- I believe that wedding photography should be fun for everyone. Your wedding photographer should feel like a natural extension of the people you choose to spend your time around. It’s so so important that you vibe with your wedding photographer, as you’ll be spending more time with them than anyone else on your wedding day. I joke around that an awesome personality is included with all my wedding collections, and I hope you’ll agree once we chat! My goal is to end each wedding with two more friends, not just clients.
- The most important thing to me is that your wedding images authentically represent your day, your love story, and your friends and family. Pinterest does a great job of having us focus on the biggest moments from a wedding day - the first kiss, the first dance, the grand exit. Any wedding photographer should be able to knock those items out of the park. What I believe in is making sure that each moment - big and small - is documented to create a complete narrative from beginning to end. After all, you want to be able to look back at each little detail you chose, Uncle Jimmy's crazy dance moves, and the way your husband or wife glanced at you with total adoration when they thought you weren't looking.
There are so many important details that go into creating a collection, so I like to discuss each collection with my clients. Let's chat about the right fit for you and your budget!
Don't think a standard package is going to fit your needs? I also work with my clients to create custom wedding collections just for them- I'll even name it after you!
Unlike most photographers, I don't price my sessions by the hour.
I know that corralling young children and perfecting your smile can add more than enough pressure to a photography session without being worried about running out of time.
All of my portrait sessions are a flat rate of $250.
"I seriously can't say enough about Danielle! In addition to our wedding, we did two engagement sessions with her. The pictures from all three events were incredible and exceeded all of my expectations! Danielle is super responsive to e-mails, has super quick picture turn-around, and her pictures are amazing! I had so many questions during the wedding planning process, and she honestly helped me with so much. From tips on what to wear for the engagement shoots, to driving three hours out of town for our shoot and a venue tour with us, to answering questions about flow of the wedding, to the wedding day schedule which she made on her own, she was the absolute best! I can't do her justice by writing- just take it from me, you need Danielle as part of your wedding!!"
"I spent hours pouring over different photographers websites trying to decide on someone to best capture the memories on our wedding day. Choosing Danielle was the best decision! She checked in with me several times before the wedding to make sure everything was going smoothly with planning, took the greatest photos in the world and was incredibly efficient. I was worried we wouldn't have enough time to finish all the family photos, and we ended up with extra time to take any pictures we wanted. Everyone is loving reliving the day and the photos are absolutely breathtaking! I definitely made the right choice for a photographer."
Wow! Where to start with Danielle and DHS photography! Choosing Danielle was easily one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! From our first meeting to receiving our wedding photos, the process was so fun and easy with Danielle! Her professionalism and great eye for detail made our wedding photos everything and more than we could have ever dreamed of! We can't express our gratitude enough, that we get to relive our wedding day everyday through Danielle's incredible photos!
