From the moment you fill out your contact form to the day you're scrolling through your gallery, you can expect me to be there every step of the way. I'll not only be building a custom package that fits your needs, but I do my best to make the whole process as transparent as possible, from contract clauses to your final payment. Once you sign on to have me behind the lens, you can expect me to be the girl who's giving you my best tips & tricks when it comes saving money on your wedding day or what to wear during your engagement sesh. I'll be the girl who's there to help you bustle your dress or even hold it while you pee. You'll find me running through fields with you and your person or bringing in the doggie treats so we can make sure to get a good photo of you and your pup.
You're not just hiring someone who's there to snap the photo and move on. You're hiring the person who's going to dump all her industry knowledge on you and help you make this most epic experience in front of the camera. You're hiring the girl who's always bringing fresh ideas (and snacks!) to the table, You're hiring the person who's goal is to not only be there to capture this life moment, but hopefully many other epic moments for years to come.
Catch me showing up early with Starbs in hand, ready to meet your humans, make sure everyone is comfortable and then jump in photographing your best day ever.
Before the day even gets here, we've been in contact, finsessing the deets, answering all your questions and setting things up to run as smoothly as possible. From vendor reccs to location scouting to engagement sessions to timeline building, I'll be there every step of the way!
Throughout your day, I’ll be weaving in and out to make sure I capture every precious moment, including those that you may not even notice. That quick kiss during toasts or your partner tucking that loose strand of hair behind your ear. All the small moments that make your heart flutter.
I’ll be the chameleon you need me to be – whether I have to be the ringleader herding everyone up for a photo or a wallflower hanging out in the background, capturing all the sweet, candid moments. No cheesiness or cringy, forced poses here!
What you're gonna get:
A fully edited online gallery that I keep live for 1 year.
High-resolution images – everything will be ready for downloading/posting/printing
Number of images:
Now I don't like putting a cap on how many you get because usually there are SO MANY good ones! But here's a rough idea of how many you can expect:
Portrait - roughly 100 images
Couples/Engagement - 100-150 images
Weddings/Elopements - this comes down to how long I'm celebrating your day.
Ex. 8hr wedding = roughly 650-850 images
How long it takes:
For both sessions & weddings, you'll get sneaky peeks within the first week!
For any of my sessions, the full gallery will be delivered no later than 1 month after your session date.
For my weddings & elopements, the full gallery will be delivered no later than 90 days post-wedding date.
Yes!! I never want dollars getting in the way of having your dream photog.
After the initial retainer fee, I split the remainder into payments that work for you. So if we need to do $100 every two weeks leading up to your session or wedding, I can make that happen. If you want one lump sum so you can put it on a credit card and forget about it, we can do that too. You just tell me what works and we can go from there.
I’m a natural light photographer with a knack for capturing the candid carefree moments of your life! I don't often bring out my flash, but when I do it's typically during dark indoor reception or nighttime.
Warm light is my absolute jam; which is why you usually find me photographing at sunrise or sunset! Those yummy golden tones that the sun brings not only give my images that sunkissed glow, but it makes me feel all gooey inside. Basically golden hour = beautiful light that rarely fails to bring all the good feels.
One of my main goals is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. After that, capturing all the things that make you, you – is a piece of cake!
HECK YES I travel!! I love all things destination: weddings, elopements, engagements, you name it! I’m happy to create a custom package to fit your needs.
No matter where we're headed, I will make sure to build any travel costs into your final package quote.
Dream Locations: Moab, Zion, Arches National Park, Joshua Tree, Hawaii, Iceland, Scotland, Italy, I could go on forever!
Golden hour baby!! This is usually an hour before sunset or an hour after sunrise. The light is just so yummy and golden and I'm OBSESSED.
Though I prefer to photograph during these times, we can totally take photos at a different time of day depending on your schedule and life.
Timing will also be dependent on our location as well!! But those deets we will lock in once we've gotcha booked and settled on a location.
Abso-freakin-loutly!! There's so much that goes into your wedding day or elopement, I totally get that that can get pretty overwhelming. The good news? I've helped so many couples plan their big days. From vendor recommendations, to scouting potential elopement locations to diving into rearch about marriage permits on National Forest Lands-- I gotchu.
I also have a list of super rad planners in the area who would be more than happy to help you plan your dream day!! Most of them offer a wide range of services from day-of coordination to a years worth of one-on-one help.
And a bonus? When you bring me on as the photographer for your big day, you'll be getting a wedding/elopement guide to help you plan the best day ever!
Short answer, I don't photograph families outside of family portraits at weddings. That said, I host mini session days once or twice a year and families are more than welcome to join me for those! I do cap it at 5 family members at my minis just so I can make sure we have enough time to take photos of everyone!
Though I don't photograph families, I have a list of super rad photographers who do and I fully trust to capture all your memories. Feel free to shoot me an email for that list if you're interested :)

I was super hoping by this point that COVID wouldn't still be impacting our lives, but unfortunately, it looks like she's going to be sticking around for a while. So here's the low-down on my COVID policies and how they'll impact our time together.
I am fully vaccinated & boosted, and do my best to maintain social distance when I'm out and about.
Legally I have to follow all State and Federal mandates when it comes to masks. This mostly impacts me and how I show up to your wedding or indoor session. I'm more than comfortable with you guys not wearing them for your photos, because duh, who wants masked images, but if your venue or a state law requires I wear one, then that's what I am going to do.
In the event that I have come into contact with someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19, I will get tested immediately and reach out to any clients whose wedding or session that impacts. In the event that I'm positive for COVID or I'm negative and you're uncomfortable with working with me, I will hire an associate photographer who will join you for your wedding or session. They will take all the images, but everything will still be edited and delivered by me. This is of no extra cost to you.
In the event that you come down with COVID, please tell me ASAP so we can troubleshoot: this may mean rescheduling or cancelling.
If you're choosing to reschedule your wedding, we can make that happen. You will have one calendar year from your OG date to reschedule your wedding. If you're rescheduling to a weekday day (M-F) there will not be a rescheduling fee. If you're rescheduling to a weekend date (S-S) there will be a rescheduling fee of $500. Rescheduling fees will apply to all weddings/intimate weddings/elopements.
If you're scaling your wedding down to an elopement, we'll talk and switch up your package and coverage if needed, Depending on where you're at in your current payment plan and what package we've scaled you down to, we'll either stop future payments or I'll refund you the difference if necessary.
If we're cancelling the big day, I refund you everything but the initial retainer if I have 30 days notice. If I have less than 30 days notice, I refund you 50% of the remaining balance after the non-refundable retainer.
You may reschedule your session one time within 6 months of your OG session date. Further reschedules may incur a $50 rescheduling fee.
If you're choosing to cancel your session all together, I must be notified within 48hrs of your session. The initial retainer is non-refundable but all other payments will be refunded.
Dani photographed our wedding and was an absolute dream to work with. Working with Dani was one of the best parts of our wedding. She was officiant and professional while also being incredibly generous and fun to be around. She and her second shooter melted into our wedding party and guest group seamlessly; it felt like they were another one of our closest friends there to celebrate us. Her passion for her work, and her genuine support for us as a couple, was palatable. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with her (something I took into consideration when hiring a photographer to follow us around for 10+ hours that day), and I was genuinely sad when she had to pack up and say goodbye.
Leading up to our wedding and throughout the big day, Dani was extremely organized and efficient. She shared a wedding planning guide once we booked, followed up multiple times in the months leading up to the wedding to discuss timeline, family photos, and overall photography preferences (including a very detailed questionnaire), to visit the venue, and to share general planning advice and professional insight, and she helped keep things running smoothly during the day. Her patience and flexibility conquered our bridal party and family photo session of 20+ people.
As for her work, she blew us out of the water with our sneak peeks (she even shared a handful of super sneaks the next morning because she’s a magician), and we can’t wait to see the rest of our album. We are so pleased with the quality and variety of shots that we've seen already. We will 100% be booking with Dani for future shoots!
I wish I could give her a million stars because Dani is that great of a photographer! She's so professional and clear about what to expect from her work, she's able to clearly direct people for the best shots, and she makes everyone feel gorgeous. She did both the photos for my engagement and wedding and both were amazing experiences.
Plus, she did my wedding this past weekend and talk about working quick! She sent me the sneak peeks within 24 hours and I was amazed with every single one. She went above and beyond to capture every perfect moment of my wedding and I couldn't thank her enough for it.
If you're looking for an amazing photog, look no further! Dani is exactly who you want to capture your special moments!
I cannot say enough good things about Dani!
She shot my sister's wedding this last weekend and she was the absolute best. She was clear and precise with instructions and directions for both the wedding party and the family. She had schedules and plans completely ready. She is the most professional photographer out there. Not only is she great, the sneakpeak photos are perfect. Everyone loves the photos. She has already edited and sent so many and it's just the preview! We know event photos take months to edit and sort through so I was shocked to see how many she had ready in just a few days. I am so excited to see everything else she has for us.
15/10 would recommend. You would be hard pressed to find anyone better!
Thank you so much Dani for all your hardwork! The Nicolas Stanfield family adores you!
