Hi there, I'm absolutely thrilled you landed here!

I'm Dani, just your friendly neighborhood gal from the Bay Area who fell head over heels for photography back in 2009, thanks to the arrival of my son, Stefan. Those early moments of capturing heartwarming memories through the lens felt like pure magic, and my passion has only grown stronger over the past decade. There's just something about those warm, fuzzy feeling moments that seem to just get better with time!

I specialize in romantic elopements and destination weddings, bringing an extra touch of enchantment to your love story. Whether it's exchanging vows against a breathtaking sunset backdrop or stealing kisses in a charming destination, I strive to capture the essence of your unique connection. I'm absolutely enamored by the stunning landscapes and the vibrant color palettes that our world has to offer us. When you pick me as your photographer, you're not just getting a pro behind the camera; you're gaining a backstage pass to a treasure trove of amazing Bay Area and Sacramento locations, complete with some fantastic wardrobe advice to match your vibe perfectly. My ultimate goal is to give you photos that don't just remind you of the moment but make you feel all the feels once again.

But here's the cherry on top of it all: I'm all about making your life easier. I proudly hold the title of the only local photographer who promises a lightning-fast 24–48-hour turnaround time for all galleries and just 1 week for all weddings! Your memories shouldn't be left waiting, and I understand the importance of reliving those special moments as soon as possible.

While I absolutely love capturing the magic of romantic elopements and destination weddings, my photography journey has been a colorful adventure with so many amazing clients and diverse moments. Whether it's cozy at-home sessions, family fun, maternity glow, graduation joy, personal branding, or sultry boudoir vibes, I've got you covered.  With over a decade of experience and a commitment to ongoing learning, I'm always up for a new and exciting challenge. I'm genuinely passionate about freezing those special moments in time and telling your unique story in the most heartwarming and beautiful way possible.

Your dreams and visions matter to me, and I'm here to transform them into stunning, timeless images that you'll cherish until the end of time. 

I'm really looking forward to meeting you and working together to create something truly special.!

With warmth and excitement,

Dani
