Monterey Wedding Photographer

See me in Action

I capture the most romantic, joyful, and all around fun candids for California couples who value every special moment during their wedding day. From oceanfront to coastal cliff weddings, I am here to document every moment and place them in a gallery that tells your unique love story.

I believe that the raw, real, and emotional moments at weddings (whether small or large) should be documented and put into a gallery that tells your love story.

Dana was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone looking for a fun, energetic, and hilarious photographer for any event or photo session. From the time of hire to our complimentary engagement shoot and finally our wedding day, she was absolutely fabulous! She captured some truly magical moments and the pictures turned out better than I could ever imagine. Also a plus, all galleries were delivered in a very timely manner.

Dana is simply AMAZING! Truly more than a photographer. From the first day we meet on the phone we felt like we were best friends from YEARS! With her endless support, joy and advice it helped us get through our amazing day. On the day of the wedding she honestly kept me calm and with pure laughter. Pictures turned out more than amazing. I never felt so beautiful before and with her hyping you up you honestly feel like a Queen. Honestly an amazing photographer recommend 1,000% YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Lauren and Tom

When I was trying to plan my wedding, I decided that my photographer was my #1 priority. First of all, she is a lovely person. My (then) fiance and I had never had photos taken before so we were nervous- Dana made us feel at ease with her friendly/upbeat personality- all while posing us for the perfect shot. When I saw our wedding photos- WOW! She made me feel SO beautiful on my wedding day, and she went above and beyond to get the perfect shot (plus, she ironed my brother's groomsmen outfit when he failed to do so! How helpful is that??)

Alysa and Nate

I have never met a photographer that is more friendly and helpful. I hired her many months prior to my wedding, but she continued to check in on me to see how I was doing leading up to the big day. By the time that the wedding day rolled, she knew exactly how to take charge with my crazy family and made sure that I looked beautiful in all of the photos. If you are looking for a photographer that is amazingly detailed, takes beautiful and bright photos, and will always go the extra mile to make sure you are happy then Dana is the photographer for you!
