I'm a die hard Hallmark fan and weddings bring all those warm fuzzies that just warm my heart! So don't mind me as I totally geek out while editing your photos & feeling the love from your day all over again. I hope you get all those same feelings & memories every time you look at the photos too!
No matter how big or how small your wedding is, I want to help you capture all those moments that seem like they'll fly by on the wedding day.
You won't find any stiff-posed, awkward prim pose photos here! Get ready to have some fun, dance it out, and share a lot of laughs! You're an introvert you say? No worries! I make sure I know everything I need to know about my clients and how to make them feel comfortable BEFORE their session! I love capturing REAL moments, so just pretend I'm not here and I'll work some magic :)
I firmly believe that marriage is a couple entering into a covenant with god & each other. whether you are having a large traditional wedding, a small intimate destination wedding, or an elopement, your wedding day is just the beginning. "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."- 1 corinthians 13:13
Danielle is simply the best! She is so creative and so fun to be around. She listens to what your vision is for your photos and she continually comes up with new and fun ideas. She is very professional, responsive and exactly who you want to have around for all of your life’s biggest moments.
The amount of images you receive depends on the amount of coverage (aka hours booked). For couple sessions I deliver a minimum of 75 high res edited jpg files, for a 4 hour elopement at least 300 files, for a 6 hour intimate wedding at least 500 files, and for an 8 hour full wedding at least 600 files. There is no maximum since every session and wedding is unique and I want you to get all the amazing shots!
Once you book with me, I'll send you an outfit guide that I send to all of my couples! I GOTCHU! It'll walk you through any questions you may have! Still have questions after receiving the outfit guide? No worries, we will work together to make sure you feel comfortable and confident in your outfits!
Once I receive your inquiry, we will go over any questions you might have! I also love to dive into your love story! If we are a good fit, signing the contract & paying the deposit will be next steps to secure your date :)
I get it life happens! Once you book with me, you will receive a customized contract that will go over all of the cancelation and rescheduling policies. If you’ve already booked your date with me, and have to cancel or reschedule your wedding/shoot, the retainer fee is non-refundable. In order to book your new date, a new retainer will need to be paid. I do this because once your date is in my calendar, I’m counting on that money as my source of income for that month. I’ve also most likely rejected other sessions for that same date. Due to COVID-19, there will be a separate policy for rescheduling/postponed weddings.
We will shoot rain or shine! Honestly, some of the most moody and emotional photos come from shooting and dancing in the rain with my couples! Unless the weather is a danger, we will embrace it and I promise you-it will make it just that much more memorable!
Edited is a HUGE part of my work and what you're paying for. Every photographer has their own unique editing style that they take countless hours perfecting. I highly encourage you to look through my photos as well as other photographers so that you know what style of editing you want. I also DO NOT photoshop, however, if there's something that's temporary and would go away on its own in 2 weeks, I am happy to brush it out of the photos.
This is something we can cover during our initial meeting. If you need assistance in finding vendors- I GOTCHU! After I get all the juicy details and have a location in mind, I can send over a list of vendors in the area! I always recommend vendors I've worked with in the past and have had a positive experience with. If it's in an area I have not worked with vendors yet-I will reach out and do the research for you on some great suggestions.
YAY! So glad you're ready to book and secure your date! Once we have chatted all about what you envision for your session, you will receive a custom invoice that allows you to pay your 30% down retainer online and sign your contract. The remained is due day of wedding/elopement. This is also how you will make the rest of your payments. If you are not wanting to pay online we can chat about other options :)
A second shooter quite frankly just that-a second "me" helping me capture all the details for your day! I highly recommend second shooters for any wedding 6 hours or more. This is simply because my time starts from the moment I'm there to the moment I leave. So if you want getting ready photos AND reception photos and have a larger wedding party, I can't do it all alone. I just physically cannot be everywhere at once to capture those candid moments.
I'm always looking forward to being able to explore new and amazing places! I will travel anywhere in the US. I'm located in Minneapolis but will travel anywhere within a 100 mile radius of the cities! Beyond that, there is a travel fee of $.58/mile. Lodging expenses are required for events more than 3 hours away.
