Danielle is a truly incredible and passionate photographer.

- stephanie r.

Not only is she the sweetest person (making planning a breeze) with an easy-going personality (keeping you laughing even through the 1,000th photo) and always smiling (making it hard for you not to gleam even more brightly back at her), she is also clearly an expert at her craft, using unique techniques to create something truly special. Danielle's photos are natural and authentic, capturing real moments instead of forced poses.

Kind Words From REAL Couples

Danielle is the absolute best photographer in the DMV area.

- eric w.

Her attention to detail is stunning and she has a great eye for taking the best pictures. Outside of her being a skilled photographer, she also has a wonderful personality which has made her a pleasure to work with. If you are in need of a photographer for your wedding then she is your go to!


Danielle is who you should budget in when planning your wedding. She is the fairy godmother, wedding photo master extraordinaire!

-jacqueline m.

I've been part of three weddings where Danielle was the photographer and her attention to detail was so unparalleled, I knew that when it was my turn she was the one. When you know you know! She captured all of our moments incredibly. Just thinking of my photos makes me tear up with joy! Thank you Danielle, I will sing your praises to everyone who's getting married around me.

Danielle is amazing!! She is basically a superhero that has mastered the power of being everywhere at once to capture every magical moment!

-brigette k.

We had so much fun with her, our guests loved her, and we absolutely adore our images and how she captured our day. I struggle with looking natural in front of the camera, and somehow she made us look like models! You won't regret hiring Danielle! :)

She knows how to put you at ease and makes taking pictures feel natural. She is truly one of the warmest people.

-rachel c.

Just speaking with her on the phone for a few minutes would brighten my whole day. When we had to postpone our large wedding celebration due to COVID, Danielle helped us find the most perfect, beautiful spot in DC to have our mini-ceremony and was so flexible and helpful with the planning. We had the perfect day with our families thanks to her help. I would recommend Danielle a million times over to anyone. She is amazing! Hire her and don't think twice!


Danielle is a wonderful person and excellent professional.

-esubalew d.

We hired her for both our engagement and wedding pic in the midst of the pandemic and she made our experience full of once in a lifetime memories, just like the event itself. She made us feel at ease and took all the wonderful pictures being part of us, not just a professional photographer hired only to do his job. She was truly wonderful and highly recommended her for anyone who looks for a fun, highly professional, respectful, and responsive to customers' needs.
