My name is Daniela, but you can call me Dani. I grew up in picturesque upstate New York & went to college in San Francisco. I'm equal parts city girl + nature girly. Because of this, I get so much fulfilment out of documenting all different types of weddings. From tiny city elopements, to luxury vineyard weddings and everything in between, if the vibes are authentic & chill, I'm in!
My shooting style is documentary with light posing. I want you to be your true selves but I know most people often feel immediately awkward if there's a camera pointed at them. I'm here to make you feel safe, calm and bring you back to the present moment. I offer gentle posing & some loving reminders to remember your journey + the magnitude of the moment, so you relax, reflect and let the real you shine through. Creating magic is a collaboration.
While my photography journey began as a young child, I honed my craft more thoroughly at the San Francisco Art Institute, receiving a BFA in 2017. I was fortunate to study with and among leading artists and artistic minds. I bring this experience and perspective to each and every shoot.

I'm a messy human, who is perfectly imperfect- just like you.
When my husband and I made the decision to elope, we were immediately filled with so much stress & a million different opinions being thrown at us. We were overwhelmed to say the least. I never want my clients to feel the way we felt. I want you to have the support and resources you need to make your dream day come true. Whether that's helping you craft the perfectly balanced timeline that gives you time with your loved ones and ample alone time, offering vendor recommendations, or being a mama bear on your wedding day helping protect you from other people's negative energy, I am here to help you create the sacred, safe space to be yourselves.
