Danielle DeFiore Photography

Photographing the heart in every story

Danielle’s photography is deeply rooted in family and inspired by the land. Her connection to stories, that faith in something old and something new, fuels the creativity and keeps a camera in her hands. Even now, nearly two decades since she started, she can’t imagine a more beautiful way to fill her days.

Colorado-based since 2005, Danielle photographs weddings in Vail, Aspen, Telluride, and Denver, where she is lucky to be surrounded by never-ending natural beauty. Though the West has captured her heart, in every piece, you’ll see the driving force behind what she does—the celebration of family and relationships—shine through.

Love Notes

“Finding Danielle was an absolute blessing! Danielle goes above and beyond for her clients by taking the time to get to know them even before they make the initial booking. By the time you are standing in front of her camera, you already feel like you have a friend for life. She is warm and easy to be around so even the most camera-shy of individuals (shoutout to my husband) feel comfortable and at ease around her. For our wedding day, she shot in both film and digital so not only do we have so much variety, she was able to capture so many raw/ special moments and details I think many would miss. She is so spectacularly talented and a true artist at her craft, her style is ethereal and organic so every photo breathes life. My husband and I are so grateful her beautiful soul has come into our lives and we cannot wait for her to continue capturing future special moments in our lives. If you are looking for a photographer I cannot recommend her enough!”

Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

It’s really hard to describe because I don’t quite fit into one “style.” I like capturing timeless images for my clients that won’t be dated with passing trends. I consider myself to be a hopeless romantic, so I’m inspired by images that tell a story, embody the spirit of the day, joy between two people, the happy things that make the world go around showing just how beautiful a moment and person can be.

Where do you find your design inspiration?

I have a handful of favorite artists that I love, including Henri Cartier Bresson, Ellen Von Unwerth, and William Eggleston. They all are pretty different in the way they photograph, but I’m drawn to their styles. Beyond artists, I’m inspired by my daily life! We own a few acres north of Denver, and when I’m not photographing events and portraits, I’m out on our property tending to the bees or playing with my children. Patiently watching the little things unfold (like my daughter picking up a ladybug and admiring it) inspires me deeply.

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

There's nothing quite like the intimacy and joy of a couples' wedding day, and being asked to help witness and tell the story of the day is an incredible honor. I love taking all of the individual moments and weaving them into a comprehensive narrative that feels just right for the couple because no celebration or love story is the same.
