You better get ready to get a little silly and laugh a lot because we're about to make some smile-filled memories. From capturing the LOL moments to those soft little inbetween kisses, I've made it my mission to capture the very essence of what makes you, you.
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.

She worked with our budget and helped walk me through every detail of the Big Day and what to expect leading up to it. She was always quick to respond and communicate everything I needed to feel prepared. She convinced us to do the first look photos (without pressuring us!) which I am beyond happy that we ended up doing. The photos turned out gorgeous and were sent to us within the timeframe she gave us. I cannot recommend her enough and she gave me the referral for my hair and makeup (Savvy Beauty Bar) which turned out to be the best recommendation. Thank you, we are so in love with our photos!!

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! 🤗

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 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 75 images
Couples/Engagement - 100-150 images
Weddings/Elopements - this comes down to how long I'm celebrating your day.
Ex. 8hr wedding = roughly 550-700 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.
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?
