My Philosophy? Simple. Be the photographer that captures your day, rain or shine, and deliver beautiful images that tell your love story! I strive for quality over quantity, exceptional over perfection (because no one is perfect), and fun and joy over stress and anxiety. I get it, trust me, wedding planning is stressful and there are so many amazing photographers out there. But what stands me out the most... is getting to relate to you and your wedding, making the experience that much better!

"The groomsman loved her!"
"My fiance actually had a good time and he hates photos!"
"She made me feel like a queen!"
"Her personality is so relatable and she keeps it real"

These are just some of the words from my past couples- where I strive to make the sessions with me fun and enjoyable and the weddings as stress-free as possible!

Q&A

Why did you decide on the light and airy style?

Why should we have you be our photographer?

What is your experience in Photography?

How many weddings do you book per year?

Aside from the experience and the top education classes there are, when it comes to myself, I am relatable, dependable, and knowledgeable on weddings. I love to laugh and have fun, but I tend to be stubborn and will get the job done! The images are the only thing (besides your marriage) that will last forever, so it's important to have someone who understands the value of memory!

I only book about 30 weddings and 5-6 elopements a year, depending on when they are. I am here to serve you at my 100% and I cannot do that if I am jam packed and stressed out/get behind!

It was only a few years ago that I took up three courses for photography: Shooting & Editing, Posing, and Business. Aside from taking hundreds of hours in learning this, I shot dozens of weddings, and hundreds of portrait sessions. My history and just a few of my favorite reviews speak for themselves!

My personality is known to be warm, light, and bubbly. I love to be positive, have fun, and always laugh. I like to take that out on my editing style to show your day was light and joyful!

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!

fun facts

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.

Destinie and Drew

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??)
