Love letters and secret admirers. Fall breeze, flannels, and hot cocoa. Whales and dinosaurs and handmade crafts. Cozy sweaters, vintage demin, and cans Pabst Blue Ribbon while telling one of a kind love stories.

Dani is amazingly talented! She’s great at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera, keeping it fun and grabbing the perfect shots. She was punctual, genuine, she listened to me and worked with not only my vision, but she helped create it. I’m absolutely in love with my pictures, I cannot thank her enough and will forever have Dani take our pictures.

I’m absolutely in love with my pictures.

My husband and I were visiting Tahoe for our anniversary and we didn’t get good photos of our wedding that was taken place in Emerald Bay the previous year, so I reached out to Dani and told her my situation. She was so awesome and excited to recreate our “elopement” style photos. She even offered to make the replica bouquet for me. She nailed it, even better than my first one! I also had a malfunction with my dress the day of our shoot and she tracked down a PERFECT dress for me to wear, saving the day! And to top it off she got us our photos in just a few short days!! I highly recommend her! 🤗

 She nailed it.

My boyfriend Blake and I wanted to get some photos taken of us in Tahoe before our cross country move to Chicago. I found Dani on Instagram, and from the first time I reached out, Dani was super responsive and excited about our shoot. She picked the most perfect shoot location in South Lake Tahoe and she was a pro from the beginning.

We felt like we were already friends, and felt immediately comfortable in front of Dani. She walked us through several different poses and made us feel so relaxed. It was truly a pleasure to work with Dani, and we received our whole gallery in a very timely manner. I would recommend Dani to anyone looking for some professionally shot photos! She's professional, responsive, meets her deadlines, and is very accommodating. Not to mention, just a very sweet person to work with. I am so incredibly happy with the photos she took! Thank you, Dani!

Do you travel & are there fees?

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! 

What's your photography & editing style?
