Elopements and Weddings

You are getting married and you are wanting a wedding package that best fits your specific wedding needs. Things are ever changing in our world, but one thing that will never change is how you feel about your spouse and that you still deserve the elopement or wedding of your dreams! I have created this page just for you. Here, you'll find all you need to know about my special elopement and wedding packages and what you can expect when you hire me as your dream wedding photographer!

Why Dana Arnold Photography?

When you hire me to photograph your wedding day, you are also hiring someone who is 
experienced in many wedding scenarios, understanding in your time, and someone who takes charge

I know you work hard for your money
I know your time is valuable 
I know moments with loved ones are important 

By having me as your photographer, you are having someone by your side who shares those values with you. I will be there to help make sure each moment you desire and cherish is documented

Serving others in and outside the wedding industry

Documenting weddings is what I love to do. It allows me to serve incredible people in and out of the wedding industry, which is why I take each wedding to heart. 

My goal from each year is to serve others in some way. My free time is based on giving back to the community. I love hosting food drives, volunteering at clothing drives, and going on mission trips abroad. 

When you hire me as your photographer, you are supporting my goals. A percentage from each wedding I book goes to savings that go towards my next mission trip and my next volunteer planned event. 

Core Values

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

In order to get the perfect shot, you'll find me standing on stools, climbing on rocks, and doing what I can to get that right angle that will make you look exceptional in your photos!

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

Always focusing on the little things to make it look exceptional.

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

Above and beyond

Make it fun

Finding the perfect photographer for your wedding can be stressful. You want someone who will capture everything perfectly and someone who truly cares about you. That’s exactly what I found in Dana. From day one Dana wanted to know everything about us, we weren’t just another customer.

- Marisa and Eric

Picking a photographer is one of the most important things for your big day. Leading up to our wedding, I was worried about not necessarily knowing all of the other vendors the way I knew Dana. I was at ease because I already trusted Dana, her work, and knew her style. Photographers like Dana make you feel at ease when you haven’t met any other vendor. I cannot recommend her enough!!!

- Samantha and Chris

Dana truly made our wedding day go smoothly.  Dana was a HUGE hit with our friends and family. She made our vision for our coastal/beach themed wedding pictures come true. Dana is extremely talented at what she does and I 100% recommend her! 
- Courtney

My husband and I knew right away from a 30minute phone call that we wanted Dana to photograph our wedding. She was fun and joked with us and made us feel very confident in her ability. I have gotten SO many complements on our pictures! Not just the quality of work but also Dana’s quirky and fun and “bossy” personality is what we loved. She knew how to take charge and get the shots we wanted, and I loved it!
- Delandra and Frank

I'm SO grateful I found Dana. Your wedding really does go by so quick, but she captured every moment PERFECTLY. 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. 

- Destine and Drew

The booking Process

You probably have some really important questions, let's get those answered

I am the type of person who is light, warm, and bubbly. So, I put that into my photography. This is considered light and airy editing. 

My photography is based on natural looks, therefore I do not do photoshop, touchups, etc. However, I can outsource an image if you want to have something photoshopped for a small price

My average turn around time is about two weeks! I always make sure to allow time for your wedding, and never over book, so I can make sure your gallery is delivered in a timely manner

You are my priority, so there is no change the date fee. As long as I am free on your new date, I will happily be at your wedding.

Each session or wedding with me will be getting an online gallery that is shareable. Your images will be safe and you can download, order prints for your home, save, and share each image!

 I am the photographer you would want if things get behind schedule, to corral a group of wound-up wedding parties, and to make sure you get the photos that YOU want. My brand is all about having fun and documenting the raw and romantic moments. If you are looking for a friendly, upbeat, and detailed-oriented photographer who gets the job done, then Dana Arnold is the photographer for you.
