I've photographed over 100 weddings and elopements since 2018, so you can trust that I've got you covered! I know when to step in to help guide you, and when to step back to capture those amazing candid moments.
On your wedding day, I'm the calming presence you need when your nerves are high, and the hype girl getting your wedding party pumped up for fun group photos. I'm the human wrangler, making sure your family members are around when we need them.
I use a mix of guided posing and a photojournalistic, documentary approach to capture all the special moments on your wedding day, big and small. I'll be there with you all day, from getting ready, til people start showing off their hilarious, cocktail-fueled dance moves. You can rest assured knowing that the effort you put into creating your wedding day will be well worth it, and you'll remember your special day with timeless images that you and your family will cherish forever.
I don't just show up on your wedding day, take some photos, and leave. I hype you the heck UP before you walk down the aisle. I get DOWN on the dance floor with you. I take silly photos with you in the photo booth. That's because to me, you're not just "another client." To me, you're a friend. I take time to get to know you, so that on your wedding day, I'm genuinely excited to celebrate with you, and watch with happy tears in my eyes as you start this incredible journey in life with your soulmate.
THIS BUSINESS IS PROUDLY LGBTQ+ OWNED.
I WELCOME FOLKS OF EVERY SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER IDENTITY AND EXPRESSION, RACE, AGE, ETHNICITY, NATIONAL ORIGIN, AND ABILITY.
I DO ALL THAT I CAN TO BE INCLUSIVE AND LOVING TO ALL PEOPLE. AS LONG AS YOU'RE A KIND HUMAN, I'M DOWN TO WORK WITH YOU!
All love is celebrated here!
I do my best to make your photo time genuinely fun! Most of my clients come to me saying that they're super nervous, because they've never had their photos taken professionally before. Let me ease your mind right now - I got you!!
I gently ease you into photo time, and guide you along the way, so you can relax and just focus on your connection. You'll be laughing together and having such a great time, you'll forget there's even a camera anywhere in sight! My clients always tell me that their session was so much easier and more fun than they were expecting! That's what I love to hear :)

If you love some of these things too, I'm pretty sure that means we're a match made in photography heaven. I love connecting with my clients through fun activities. I've rock climbed, gone to concerts, gone to house parties, and even gone on vacation with past clients. I truly mean it when I say I love to become friends with my clients!
I was born and raised in Connecticut, but a love of travel and creativity has carried me much farther throughout my life. Spending lots of time in Cape Town, South Africa (where my mom is from) while growing up taught me a deep love and appreciation for wildlife, the outdoors, and diverse cultures.
I knew I wanted to become a professional photographer while traveling through South East Asia for a few months in 2017. Traveling through Nepal, Cambodia, and Thailand got me absolutely hooked on portrait and landscape photography.
I moved to Denver, Colorado at the beginning of 2020 so that I could spend more time hiking, exploring the beautiful west, and to focus on photographing elopements and weddings in the gorgeous mountains of Colorado!
Every different location and every couple brings out new aspects of my creativity, and this job fuels my soul in ways I can't describe!

From photographing elopements in remote mountaintop locations where it's just me and a couple, intimate weddings with 20 guests at airbnbs, to weddings with 200+ guests and massive wedding parties at fancy venues. With experience working in Colorado, Arizona, Oregon, Mexico, the North East, Utah, and Wyoming; navigating rain, snow, wind, bright sun, and dark rooms. I can handle any situation on your wedding day with complete confidence, because I've truly seen it all, and have the experience to navigate any challenges with ease!
Dani made us feel so comfortable and all of our photos truly show our personalities. She’s seriously the only person I’ll let take professional photos for any of our future needs!!

"Dani has been absolutely amazing. Quick to respond, helpful, an amazing eye, and open to do whatever she needs to do to bring our vision to life. We truly have been blown away with her at every step of the process."
Dani put us at ease and perfectly captured our most natural and intimate moments. She gave us the direction we needed while still allowing us to be ourselves. Dani is not only incredibly talented, but a lovely person to be around making the experience that much more enjoyable.
I capture the deep belly laughs, the stolen glances, the wild dance moves, and most importantly, the real you.
