Monterey Wedding Photography service

We absolutely love all of the photos Dana captured and are SO glad we booked for our engagement shoot and wedding with her! We not only got amazing pictures out of it, but we got a caring, dedicated, and hilarious photographer who kept us smiling through our shoots even when our faces hurt!
- Llili and Jesus

Dana is an amazing photographer who can make anything look amazing and make anyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. She answered all of our questions along the way. On a day that could have been really stressful, she took charge of the schedule and put us all at ease so we could focus on enjoying the day.
- Julia and AJ

Choosing Dana as our photographer was the best decision I made. The moment she arrived she really took charge and made sure I got all of the photos I wanted. She made the experience so fun and comfortable. She is down to earth and hilarious and was a friend to us on our big day! 
- Samantha and Dillon

 I knew she was going to be a good fit during our first phone call just because of her personality. Through the whole wedding process she kept checking on me which I appreciated so much. It was nice to be able to rant to someone about all that we were dealing with due to covid but she remained so positive! She is definitely assertive but I think thats something that is needed!! She cracked jokes the whole time which we loved
- Imani and AJ

Dana went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable as I’m camera shy. Her elegant, yet simple style was something I knew would go perfectly for our vineyard wedding. I highly recommend Dana if you want someone who will make you laugh, someone who genuinely cares, and if you want quality, beautiful photos
- Angela and Patrick
