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!

Mission

I am here to document the most joyful, romantic, and fun candids for California couples who value every special moment, whether big or small, and deliver these moments to you for you to cherish for years to come.

Vision

From the day we make it a thing, to the day you receive your images, you will find me by your side. I will be an initiative photographer to ensure all moments are documented, even if things get behind on your wedding day. 

Purpose

Your love story is what makes you so wonderful and so different from everyone else. I believe that your wedding day should be told through warm and joyful photographs that show who you are!

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!
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!

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 look exceptional.

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.

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??)

Alysa and Nate

I have never met a photographer that is more friendly and helpful. I hired her many months prior to my wedding, but she continued to check in on me to see how I was doing leading up to the big day. By the time that the wedding day rolled, she knew exactly how to take charge with my crazy family and made sure that I looked beautiful in all of the photos. If you are looking for a photographer that is amazingly detailed, takes beautiful and bright photos, and will always go the extra mile to make sure you are happy then Dana is the photographer for you!
