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 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, caring about you and your story, and using that to create a beautiful wedding gallery, making the experience that much better!

I'm not your typical wedding photographer. I put feelings and customer service over prices, and reach for exceptional, not perfection (because no one is perfect). I LOVE love and am obsessed with each couple I photograph! They each have a story that makes me tear up ( I can get emotional sometimes) and have such a heart for each other and giving back! This is why I decided on wedding photography, because it is the absolute best thing to do!

here's why you'll love working with me

let me take care of your best day ever

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

Lauren and Dylan

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??)

from past clients

kind words

We'll meet in person, or chat via phone/facetime. The idea is to get to know each other, talk all things wedding, and see if we are a good fit for each other on your wedding day!
