Growing up in a home where I had to work at a young age to help my parents put food on the table, my lifestyle since then, has been based off of that time of my life. It's the reason why I work extremely hard for the things I want, and need. It's the stepping stone in where I am today and how I created this business: determination, big dreams, and serving others. As a Navy wife who has lived in 5 states over the span of 8 years, I have never felt more willing to keep my wedding photography business going, because it's this business that keeps me loving life and living fully.

Let's get RAW, shall we?

So glad you are here!

The fun facts

1.

My husband and I have quite the story. We went to the same high school, did the same sports, and even lived so close to each other. Yet, we did not meet until a random summer job after my senior year of high school!

2.

My free time is usually spent at the beach. I love catching some, snorkeling, and laying on my towel with some sandwiches and my favorite snack!

3.

Traveling has become my life. Steven + I have been all over the world together, and still have a list of places and things to see! 9 countries down, endless more to go!

4.

I am a proud dog mom to such a sweet (and sassy) boxer named Karma! We adopted her in New York and she has moved all over with us! She is our whole world!

See me in action

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!

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??)
