Hi, I’m Dani! I’m an adventurous elopement photographer traveling globally for intimate, adventurous elopements for over 5 years now.

You know when you hear an old song, and it brings you back to a memory or feeling? Well, the same is what I do with photography.

I don’t want your photos to be picture perfect.
I want to capture the the tears, the slower moments, the little details, the moment your partner sees you for the first time, the moment you realize you’re meant to be together for the rest of your lives.

Essentially, I want your photos to make you feel something when you look at them. Because that’s what matters the most – the fact that you are marrying the love of your life. And I want these photos to reflect that forever and ever.

Not only this, but I also specialize in planning adventurous elopements! If you have no idea where to go or where to start, let me be your guide! 🙂

I’ve been to 8+ countries and almost every state in the United States, and I’m very familiar with National/State Parks as well as other beautiful locations to get married.

Places I shoot more than 3+ times a year and am an EXPERT in:

  • Hawaii – all islands
  • Yosemite National Park, CA
  • Glacier National Park, MT
  • Moab, Utah

If all this is preaching to your soul, then let’s chat and get dreaming! 🙂

For anyone considering having Dani as your photographer, let me make it easy for you - do it! Even though I had been following Dani’s work for years, I felt it was necessary to do my due diligence and research the market. Her work and who she was left little room for competition. Let’s be real - there was no competition. Dani’s photography is alive! Everyone in the photos leaps from the pages, and the love and joy are tangible. We jumped in with both feet to have Dani for an engagement shoot, our wedding, and an adventure shoot the day after! Working with Dani was worth every penny and more!

Planning a wedding can be very fun and very stressful, so having Dani’s calm/friendly demeanor and clear expertise on our side was a huge blessing. She rode the rollercoaster of planning our wedding in 35 days and provided expert guidance and encouragement along the way. On our wedding day, seeing Dani (and our incredible videographer - Films By Madeline) brought a wave of peace, knowing an expert was on the premises. Throughout the day, Dani laughed with us and cried with us! It felt as though she was one of our loved ones there, celebrating and capturing our story. The value add of having full faith and trust in those capturing your day is a game-changer. You don't have to just take our word for it, either. Our venue and wedding coordinator LOVED working with Dani. On multiple occasions, they lauded her professionalism and talent. Here’s to Dani! A photographer I would choose and recommend time and time again :)

Dani has been absolutely amazing to work with! We had our wedding planned for May 2020 but because of covid it had to be replanned or postponed a total of SIX times! Dani was with us through all of it, was very flexible and understanding and worked with us on all our different attempts at getting married.

We finally ended up deciding to move the traditional wedding to Sept 2021 (for which we've booked her again) and eloping in Yosemite a few weeks ago. Just a few days before we had to replan again to elope elsewhere due to wildfires, Dani was again super flexible and understanding, and we finally had a perfect elopement in Joshua Tree NP. Not only was she amazing to work with in that regard, but we got our ceremony video and teaser photos after just a couple days!! It was great to be able to share those with our parents right away and relive the ceremony as it all happened so quickly!

BOOK DANI! She is super fun and easy to work with and will take absolutely gorgeous photos that look more like art than the traditional wedding photos you're used to seeing.

Luke and I finally had the chance to sit down and go through all of our photos and to say we were completely overwhelmed at how beautiful they were, is an understatement. Dani is so talented and we could not have asked for a better photographer. From making us feel comfortable to capturing all of our most precious moments throughout our day, Dani went above and beyond. We can’t thank her enough for being a part of making our wedding so special. We are so excited to see what the future holds and we will definitely be using her talents in the future!

Dani was an absolute dream to work with. After searching through a ton of wedding photographers, we decided to go with Dani because of her positive personality, her aesthetic and her price point. She made every touchpoint super seamless. I'm personally not a fan of the camera but she made every session super fun and totally comfortable—it was like getting together with an old friend. She also gave us some really great tips to help us prepare for the wedding which were useful!

As we got closer to the wedding day, Dani was super responsive and made to sure to remind us of everything that we should have and be prepared for which made us feel supported! On the day of, Dani and her second shooter were fantastic. Their excitement for us and our big day was infectious. All of guests and family loved both of them—they still comment on how lovely Dani was:)

We just got our full album and we couldn't be happier. Detail shots were a big thing for me and Dani captured these quiet moments in a beautiful way so that when we looked back on them we got to see the full picture of our wedding from an outsiders perspective since it goes by so fast. The sunset romantic photos are INSANE, she is so freaking talented and we loved how her second shooter was up to give up her jacket on a cold, windy day to help us "get the shot." Team effort!
