From the sandstone cliffs that zigzag the coastline to the old growth forests and the waterfalls in between, I never tire of exploring the Pacific Northwest (or location scouting for my next elopement or portrait session).

Elopements, intimate weddings and adventure portrait sessions have my heart. I connect best with outdoorsy couples and families who value storytelling images in breathtaking locations.

My roots are in photojournalism. I worked as a full-time staff photographer for about 10 years. I miss the newspaper biz, but I still have the opportunity to document important stories for my clients. ⁠⁠When you work with me, I’ll capture a mix of candid, genuine moments and naturally posed portraits.⁠⁠

WHAT COUPLES ARE SAYING

Danielle was an amazing choice for our wedding photographer! She was so understanding and flexible with all of the changes our planned wedding went through, last minute picture ideas, crying children, etc. We got many beautiful pictures to remind us of the lovely memories of our special day. Very affordable for what you receive and such a kind person behind the camera!

We are so thankful that we chose to work with Danielle for our wedding photos! She was there through the entire process of planning and stuck with us through several changes in our plan (thanks 2020). One of the things that was important to us was to get our personal photos done at a super cool location before the wedding. When the first location fell through, Danielle came up with a plan B that did not disappoint! She was quick to respond when we had a question, kept us in the loop of what was happening, and was all around an absolute joy to work with and be with on our wedding day!
Parris & Taylor

Danielle was perfect!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for our wedding. She was super professional and interested in our story since the first meeting. I like that she takes some time to meet the couple before, get to know them and understand the story and how everything began. It really makes a difference.

And on the day of, her being so calm, warm and relaxed just helps a lot.

Don’t get me started at the dreamy pictures she takes!

Recommend 100% .

Meet Danielle

I’m mom to an inquisitive, strong-willed 4-year-old son who keeps me on my toes. Seeing the world through his eyes keeps things interesting.

We have two ultra fluffy Norwegian Forest Cats (yes, that’s a real breed). I especially love the tufts of fur between their paws.

When I’m not behind the camera, you’ll find me hiking with my son, attempting to garden, horseback riding, playing board games with my husband, kayaking or camping with my family.
