Danielle Aisling


Badges & Awards


My name is Danielle, and I’m a traveling photographer based in Ottawa, Canada.

I photograph amazing people in the places they love, all over the world. There’s nothing more important to me than my friends and my family, the earth underneath my feet, living with a sense of adventure, and creating something meaningful for others.

It’s so important we get to know each other to make sure we’re a good fit cause trust me, it matters. I’ll go first.

I will take beautiful photos of you. But I have a deep desire to create something more than that. This is about capturing the way you feel about each other. Capturing who you are, and more importantly, who you are together. Cause when you’re with The One, your best self shines through, and that’s something worth documenting.

Who am I? I feel like we’re so much more than a list of descriptors, but if I were to sum it up, it would go something like this…

I’m a vegetarian, and nachos are my jam. My hubby and I love to hike, and he proposed by a campfire in front of the little cabin we were staying at, with a view of the mountain visible on the other side of the lake (we hiked up the mountain the next day, obviously). My daughter is 7, fiesty, and oh-so-hilarious. Our bulldog Marshall is affectionately known as The House Donkey, because if ever there were another creature whose soul so accurately matched his, Winnie the Pooh’s pal Eeyore would be it.

I love to travel and have a very long bucket list (biggest one? To go to Moab or the Sahara and race around in our Jeep). If you’re anything like me, you’re about going someplace epic and exploring instead of sitting at home watching Netflix (though don’t get me wrong, I can totes do that for a whole weekend once in a while!). I love the beach and summer weather is my absolute favourite, but I also love starting up our wood stove when it’s 40 below and we’re buried under 3 feet of snow in the winter. I am a lover of the outdoors, and am restless sitting still. Exploring is a part of who I am, and getting to join you on an adventure is such an amazing part of what I do.

Why does knowing all of this about me matter? Because I want to be there for you, not just as a photographer, but as a friend. This is about way more than just capturing pretty pictures – this is about YOU.

Feel the same way? Hit me up and let’s make some magic happen. 😉
