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

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??)

from past clients

kind words

I am here to serve the couples who enjoy love, cheesy dad jokes, and want to enjoy the process, not just hire another vendor. This is the time where we meet in person or have a phone chat. It's when we get to know each other, laugh, and plan your wedding through photography so we can have the best package for your needs! If we don't connect on a personal level, and if there is no trust, we might not be the best fit for eachother! This consultation will help us decide all of that!

The Process

Engagement Session

You may have already had your engagement session, and that is fine! However, this engagement session is different because you are getting a free session with the photographer you invested in for your wedding. This is the time for us to find your good side for when you're in front of the camera, see what you do and don't like with posing, and a time when we can meet in person, talk weddings, and so I can provide advice for finding vendors, planning, etc! Plus, it's free and who wouldn't want more free photos?

Wedding Day

I am not just your photographer, but your planner, and your friend! This is your day, so I don't want you to worry about a thing! Keep in mind that things happen and we can get behind schedule but that is why you have amazing vendors, to help you get back on track and for me to make sure I still capture the moments you want in your gallery! It's going to be a fun day, and I will make sure of it!

Post Wedding

Getting your wedding images to you ASAP is my priority! I go home the same day and back up the images and the next day, I am already editing away and picking the images for your gallery! I waste no time and strive for exceptional customer service! Your images will be sent to you within 2-3 weeks (max) through an online gallery!

you'll hear from me shortly.
