Hello, I’m Dani!

“Dani was a joy to work with and captured our day even more beautifully than I could have imagined! She also went above and beyond to make me feel 100% comfortable all day! She helped me set aside the stress and pressure to please everyone by fully encouraging me to just BE…in the moment, with my husband, and celebrating our love. Dani is a treasure as a photographer and person. Your experience will be that much richer by having Dani as a part of your most important moments.”

– The Boswells

“We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dani… She was professional and responsive to our questions and needs throughout the planning process, taking time to have multiple phone conversations with us about our vision for the day, our priorities in terms of our photos, and logistical/timing issues….On our wedding day, she was awesome – a truly kind and friendly person. We barely knew she was there during our personal moments together and she made us feel comfortable and confident when we were taking our formal photographs. The pictures speak for themselves – she captured truly intimate moments between us and our closest friends and family. She also did an amazing job capturing the stunning landscape that made us select our wedding venue.”

Fun facts

Where are you originally from?

A Texas girl at heart, being deeply in love with the mountains and looking for advneture at every turn led me to Colorado in hopes of finding my happy place. My adorable little ski town of Breckenridge, Colorado has turned out to be just that! I now happily share the best day of people's lives with them in some of the most beautiful scenery known to man- documenting, laughing, crying, and celebrating the love between them along the way.

What do you consider your style to be?

I specialize in curating and capturing timeless, dreamy photographs of your destination wedding that will bring you back to the day—cue those happy tears—when you’re celebrating your first, fifteenth, and twentyfifth anniversary. Part stylish documentary and part high-end editorial, my luxury wedding photography services do your months of planning the perfect wedding justice. I strive to tell each couple's individual love story in a way that is so uniquely them, and I do so by artistically creating romantic settings and authentic moments. My style has been described as romantic, natural, and elegant, and my couples tend to share in my love for natural light, breathtaking landscapes, stunning and luxurious details, and of course, adventure!

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

We’re just perfect for each other if: You appreciate culture, travel, and the unique character of each location you visit. You love natural light photography, open spaces, and nature. You enjoy curating a romantic and comfortable atmosphere for your guests to enjoy. You have an eye for detail and want photographs that are Vogue-worthy but highly personalized and unique to you. You’re not into “hired help” photographers that just cover the basics and leave. You want to feel understood, seen, appreciated, and like you have a trusty behind-the-scenes wedding day ally who can read the room and proceed accordingly. You seek to build a relationship with your wedding photographer that puts your soul at ease and helps you feel and look your best.

What is your favorite part about a wedding

In true Dani fashion, I am torn between the striking juxtaposition of those dreamy and luxurious detail pictures that capture the mood of a wedding day so effortlessly, and the real + raw emotion-filled moments that express the love between two people and their loved ones. I'm drawn to the quiet, intimate moments between lovers; the way he holds the small of her back when they walk together, how she reached up to touch his face before each kiss. My favorite times of the day tend to be when the couples read their vows to each other and speeches are given-- anything that gives me more insight into their relationship and personalities so that I can use that in my creative process to tell their story even more authentically!
