I get it, trust me, I was in your shoes

let me take care of your best day ever

-> I was a bride too, and all I wanted was a photographer who made me look good and deliver pretty photos, but also someone who made it fun, and was easy to get along with.

-> Keeping track with my money and staying on budget is why I am able to save, which is why I created packages for every budget in mind

-> My walls are filled with my favorite photos and so this allows me to know the best poses for you so you can have a gallery you are proud to share on social media and make your profile photo! 

Truth is, this is your first wedding, and for me, I have shot dozens and dozens. My experience will allow me to be your photographer that will provide a service best for you. I am here to help you along the way and give you a lot of advice when it comes to timeline that is best for you, your guest, and of course your photos!

Core Values

Make it Fun! 
Wedding days should be fun, not stressful. I am here to make you smile, laugh, and feel at ease while documenting your day.

Above and Beyond!
Things happen on your wedding day you don't expect, I am here to help! Need some Starbucks? I will pick some up on the way. Shirt all wrinkled up? Hand me an Iron, I got you! 

Love is Love!
No matter your color, your race, your religion, your beliefs. I support all communities. This is a safe place to be you! 

Attention to Detail!
Always focusing on the little things to make it picture perfect.

Pay it Forward!
I do this so I can earn money to volunteer, donate, and save for mission trips for me to do once-twice a year.

The Process

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 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. 

Krisia and Ulises

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??)
