I have a mission to capture the most fun, joyful, and loving photographs that tell your story from your wedding day. I love to deliver these through a beautiful gallery. From the beaches in Waikiki to inside the rainbow tower, I will be there to document the most precious moments any couple would want from their wedding day. 

You just found your favorite wedding photographer

See me in Action

Experienced World Traveler + Classic Light & Airy Wedding Photographer

Voted Wedding Wire Couple's Choice Award for 2019 and 2020

I'm here because I get it

 I was a bride too. I wanted to find a photographer with good experience who can edit pretty photos and someone who will make sure I don't look like a cow (I have insecurities and so I work to get the best angles). 

 Money saving is important to me- you want a good investment but you don't want to go over budget. I promise to make sure I provide a service to you that won't break your wedding budget and is worth your hard earned money. 

 My walls are filled with my favorite images- I know the best poses that are frame worthy and you can bet as your photographer, I will be making sure your photos are frame worthy as well

 I have shot dozens of weddings, ya'll. You can expect that I will make sure we stay on time and if things go wrong, then I will be sure to get us back on track and back on time so your wedding day can go smooth!

It's as easy as a walk on the beach

1- It starts with our free one-hour call. Whether zoom or on the phone, we talk about your inquiry, your wedding, and of course, talk all about YOU! What do you want as a bride, for your wedding, and what do you expect with your vendors? This is your wedding and your big day and I want to be able to serve you, your spouse, and your family! 

2- Next is your engagement session! We will meet at the beach, or in the gardens, and take all the pretty photos and chase all the good light! This is the time to get to know each other even more and get you familiar with my camera

3- Throughout the time leading up to your wedding, you can expect me to reach out to you every few months. It's important to keep each other updated, and feel free to always ask for advice with the planning and the process! 

4- Your wedding day is here. I will show up early with Starbucks, a smile, and ready to go. I will hug your mama (with a mask on- thanks covid), shake hands with your dad, and of course talk with your girls! The day will be amazing and I cannot wait to capture every important and candid detail throughout the whole day! 

5- Post wedding day, you can expect a sneak peek within a few days, a blog with a week (full of dozens of sneak peeks) and then your gallery delivered within a month! Waiting sucks, which is why I always focus on one wedding at a time- to give you the best experience and deliver your gallery in a timely manner!

Dana Arnold is truly incredible. It was so easy to book with her despite the 3 hour time difference. She was extremely responsive and a great addition to our vendor team! Dana made sure to arrive to our wedding plenty of time, in case of delays, and she even surprised us with a wonderful gift at our wedding! We love our photos and she was worth the investment we put into her!

Dana is amazing! She is fun, lighthearted and has a warm, friendly, bubbly personality! My husband and I loved working with her! She did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments in our wedding and provided us with an amazing engagement session as well. Her turn-around time is fast, yet efficient, and everything was easy and affordable, even with the travel. We cherish our special photos from Dana!
- Naomi

I cannot speak highly enough about Dana. She was fantastic to work with. My wedding pictures are absolutely beautiful! She is a professional in every sense of the term. Great customer service, courteous, responsive, highly skilled and delivers outstanding work. I’m so glad she was available for my big day and I highly recommend her!
