I am a navy wife to the most loving husband that I could ask for! It's a lifestyle that still takes me by surprise but getting to live all over the country allows me to grow as a person... and try all the local favorite food diners ;)

Settling down is not in my nature. I really enjoy traveling to other countries because it teaches me about culture, history, and of course, food! I've been to 10 different countries and still have more to see!

On the serious sides of things, I currently am living a life while dealing with anxiety and PTSD. It's a battle I face weekly but with the help of friends, family, and my super cool therapist, things are getting better every day and I am so blessed for that!

Favorite hobbies? Well, if I am not focusing on making my business better, you will find me at the beach, reading books, hitting the gym, and watching Netflix with my favorite popcorn and doggo!

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.

I did a lot of searching for a photographer and I'm SO SO grateful I found Dana. Your wedding really does go by so quick, but she captured every moment PERFECTLY. Normally, having your pictures taken over and over can get, well annoying, but Dana kept it fun and energetic. Her personality is phenomenal. She got pictures we never would have thought we wanted. She did every picture we asked for and so much more. As the bride, she made me feel beautiful in all my photos.

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??)
