luxury wedding & engagement photography for Virginia brides

even more memorable

making your day

I'm Dana! A believer in love, and a lover to my husband, dog, and traveling the world. Two years ago, I invested my hard-earned money and time into learning about photography. I spent hundreds of hours learning to shoot, pose, edit, and pretty much fell in love with love! Wedding photography makes me happy and what brings me such joy is getting to serve couples who are adventurous, fun, and love to crack a cheesy dad joke here and there! I am here for you guys and I already cannot wait to meet you and serve you on your wedding day!

You've found yourself here most likely because you are recently engaged and I cannot wait to hear more of your story!

and so much congrats!

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.

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??)
