wedding + family photographer

I adore laughter, and fuzzy socks. My passion is to tell your story the way you imagine it. Embrace the wind, make goofy faces, laugh, dance, and kiss like you're the only ones in the room. Those are moments that make you feel something extraordinary, and end up being memories that last a lifetime. Sweet glances between lovers, mothers crying because time is tricky, or a fathers embrace during the first dance. They are never perfect, but they are always cherished. You deserve an experience worth remembering, the photos are just a keepsake. 

why i take pictures.

Because I fucking love it. 

what are others saying?

The real shit.

"Dani is uncommonly good. If you're looking for a perfectly posed picture where everyone smiles on the count of 3, she's not the photographer for you. Instead, she'll chase after your kids while they play and capture the most authentic giggles, she'll prompt your husband to retell the story of how you met and she'll catch that moment and the look in his eyes and you'll never feel posed or pretend. That's my favorite thing about having Dani take our family photos. She's done my engagement pictures, boudoir, my wedding, and family lifestyle shoots and I'm always looking for an excuse to book another shoot with her."

Briana + Abel

"Amazing pictures!!!! Dani is great with kids and awesome to work with!! Love her and her work!!!"

Schwarz  Family

"We absolutely love Dani! She's so talented and always has a unique vision! Hands down she's the gal to go to for great pics!"

Ward Family

"My husband and I have been so lucky to share so many of our most precious memories with Dani! Over the last few years she has taken our engagement, wedding, and family photos! Every time she always brings new ideas, an energetic personality, and most of all, patience trying to get the perfects shots! She always makes us feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera which isn't always easy! And she is AMAZING at what she does! Every time we think about taking new pictures, we always think of Dani first!"

Ashley + Mike

"Seriously Dani is the BEST!!!! She has such a great eye and is oh so talented. She photographed our wedding in June and the shots turned out amazing. We even got a wedding album that came with out session. She was super friendly and made everyone involved super comfortable. Highly recommend her to ANYONE looking to book a wedding or any other shoots for that matter! You the BOMB Dani!!!"

Amber + Scott

"Dani is incredible! She knows exactly how to get real and meaningful captures that tell a story. She is SO great with kids and quite honestly just a super sweet and authentic person. We just love her to pieces!"

Rockey Family

"INCREDIBLE PHOTOGRAPHER! She has the most creative eye I have ever seen! We have shot with Dani for over 5 years and I couldn't imagine my memories without her. She has the ability to capture a child's personality and bring it to life like nothing I have ever seen, looking at the beautiful images she has captured of my girls brings tears to my eyes. She is so good with the kids and keeps them calm and interested in what she is doing. She is out of this world with photoshop. I am a designer of children's clothes, and her creativity in playing with the image enhances and dream I could play up with my clothes. I'm blessed to have the opportunity to shoot with her and will forever be her most leak customer!!"

Hood Family

"A wedding so beautifully captured by Danielle that I relive my entire wedding night every time I look back at my photos. She came by our venue early to find all of the prime photo opportunities and she used them all to the fullest. These pics speak for themselves. 10/10 would recommend!!!"

Mathew + Carter

"Dani is the most amazing photographer! I first used her as my wedding photographer, and have used her to photograph life events ever since! She is now the go to for both my husbands family and mine as well.Not only does she take the most amazing photographs but she keeps it a fun easy and process! She is wonderful with children, and she captures beautiful photographs that you will cherish forever!!"

Ali + Rob

"Dani is an incredible photographer! Her personality, creativity and patience is one of a kind. Every session we have had with her, our photos have turned out better than I could have ever imagined. I can honestly say that we have found our forever photographer! Thank you Dani for being you, you are blessed with a gift!"

McMahon Family

"There's not enough words to describe how amazing Dani is. We met through a mutual photographer friend 4 years ago & I've not only gained an amazing photographer but such a wonderful friend. She has the best personality and will make every photo shoot fun and comfortable for all involved ! I use her for all photo needs and she always goes above and beyond expectations. You will not be disappointed in choosing Dani to capture all your beautiful moments!"

Katelin + Phillip

"Danielle is one of the most talented photographers I've worked with! She's very patient with kids and truly an artist! Highly recommend!!!"

Jacobsen Family

"Dani is truly AMAZING at what she does. She has taken my engagement, and wedding photos. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and that she is capturing every moment. She also has a wonderful way of capturing genuine moments.I was truly blown away by our wedding photos they were everything we wanted and more. My husband and I like her work so much that we are willing to travel from the Bay Area to Fresno. I can't wait to have Dani capture all of the big milestones in our lives."

Haley + Clayton

"Dani has a unique way of making everyone feel comfortable while she’s shooting. We first met Dani when she did an epic location shoot for our engagement photos many moons ago. Since then she has shot our wedding, both my pregnancies, my newborns and countless family photos over the years. She is the photographer who becomes a part of the family. My husband (Mr. “Are We Done Yet”) enjoys our shoots with her because he knows she will capture the true, loving moments of us as a family. My kids love her because they know she will make them laugh and chase them around to get the absolute perfect shot of their personalities. I love working with her because she invests so much of herself into being able to give me the shoot I envisioned. She spends time going over pre-shoot planning like location, mood, wardrobe, shoes, and so much more with me while I’m getting everything ready on my end. No matter if we are shooting in town or if it’s an epic adventure shoot (which I like to do often) she is always going above and beyond to capture my family and our love for each other. I can’t ask for a better photographer for our family."

McFarland Family

"We have had the pleasure of meeting Dani a few months ago when she did our maternity photo session. She is truly talented and so comfortable and fun to work with. She has also done multiple friends photos and we continue to recommend her to other friends. Most recently, she did our Christmas photos and they turned out great!!"

Halstead  Family

What’s it like to shoot with me? My goal during any session is creating comfortability and capturing truth. I want you to remember how you felt when you look back on photographs we take together, and it’s my job to create an atmosphere where those real moments can thrive. I provide style guides if you need suggestions on what to wear to compliment the location, and you can count on easy communication from the very first email to assure smooth sailing! Life should be about adventure and passion, the rest will follow.

The most important thing to me is initial meetings! So much these days is lost to emails and social media that we forget the importance of human connection. For you to feel 100% yourself in front of a lens, I always strive for coffee dates and initial meet and greets prior to any wedding booking! I want to gain your trust and friendship so we can create some magic together that represents your story truthfully. (Face Time counts too for destination weddings!)

Once we've had that opportunity to get to know each other is when the beautiful pieces can fall into place! I am very hands on, and thorough with clients to ensure good communication and no misrepresentation. SO, send me a note and let's hang out, connect, and chat!

FAQ/POLICIES



POLICies

RETAINERS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. INVOICES ARE SENT OUT IMMEDIATELY UPON BOOKING. RETAINERS MUST BE PAID WITHIN 24 HOURS, OR THEY AQUIRE A $25 LATE FEE WHEN UNPAID. SUBJECT TO CANCELATION WITHOUT NOTICE IF UNPAID (NO REFUNDS). Please pay your invoices immediately to secure booking date and time. 

INVOICES

RETAINERS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. Session dates are available for change 7 days prior to scheduled booking. There are no guarantees of availability within that same month and will still be at my discretion. If rescheduling is made within the 7 day grace period you will be required to pay a new non refundable retainer for a new session. There will be no refunds in the event I have no availability, however, your session payment will still be honored for that calendar year. THERE IS NO RESCHEDULING FOR EVENT MINI SESSION DEAL DAYS, OR SPECIAL EVENTS. If you book on a mini session deal day (like fall or easter annual specials) there is no option for rescheduling under any circumstances, and there is no refund. Specials and event bookings are non transferable because they are rare, one day only deals. The only exception is putting it towards a regular price session on a different day that is not part of the original special, but it still requires a new invoice with a new retainer and the forfeiting the original retainer that was paid.  

RESCHEDULING/TRANSFERING

If you have any questions or concerns about my policies and faq's please inquire BEFORE you book!

RETAINERS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. Cancelations made within the 7 days leading up to your session date will inquire a $50 rebooking fee for future sessions. There are NO REFUNDS for canceled sessions at any time. NOTE: If you change your mind after receiving your invoice, or ignore communications, please be advised that you will automatically go to the end of the list for any future booking. Communication is priority and I turn away clients, so please be serious when I get to the point of sending your invoice. 

CANCELATIONS

Images take time, and that time varies from season too season. Weddings take about 8 weeks to finish and deliver, and at busy seasons please expect 8-10 weeks. Lifestyle sessions take 2-3 weeks to finish and deliver depending on the demand and time of year. During the spring and fall months please understand delays happen, but it's rare and I always try to get images back as quickly as I can. I am just as eager to deliver, as you are to receive! PROMISE! 

TURN-AROUND

RETAINERS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. CANCELATIONS MADE AT ANY TIME ARE STILL NON-REFUNDABLE. When you book a session, you are entering into a contract, and are obligated to fulfill your commitment just as I am. Options to reschedule sessions are available if it falls within the policies of rescheduling and pending availability.  If you paid your balance on the first of the month and need to cancel your shoot, you are not entitled to any refund, subject to unavailability for rescheduling. 

REFUNDS

Should there be weather delays I do not implement any fees for rescheduling. However, while I do set dates aside for "rainy day delays" I still cannot guarantee quick availability and contract out the work should this occur to photographers I trust and work with regularly. You must reschedule with me, no payment will be returned. 

WEATHER

PLEASE READ INVOICES. Your session starts at the time scheduled. Try to arrive 10 minutes early to avoid being late. I do not add time to end of sessions due to tardiness. If your scheduled at 5pm for a mini session and arrive at 5:30pm, you will be responsible for another session fee for my time wasted. This is something I take very seriously, and hope for understanding as my time is important. I often reward clients for arriving early and being on time by being flexible on the duration of their sessions. So it pays to be on time! 

SCHEDULED TIME 

NO REFUNDS OR RE-SHOOTS for clients that simply aren't happy with their images. Sessions don't always go to plan, and when you enter into a booking you are responsible for accepting that risk. While it is HIGHLY rare that I am unable to capture images you'll love, when it does happen it is for reasons out of my control. Sessions with uncooperative kids, windy situations, uncomfortable weather, late arrivals etc, are not subject to automatic re-shoots. Re-shoots are rare and only at my discretion. NO REFUNDS for unrealistic expectations regarding my style and editing. You are responsible for viewing my work prior to booking me for a session!

UNSATISFIED EXPECTATIONS

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE is it permitted to alter my photos in anyway. This includes, but is not limited too, retouching or photoshopping, adding filters or personal presets, or cropping. Please be respectful of my style, artistry, and time. Clients who filter or alter my images in any way, and are uncooperative in removing it, will be automatically unable to book any further sessions. All images are the property of Dani M Photographs, and cannot be used for financial gain or defamatory situations. Images are permitted to be used in contests, and on social media with the proper credit given. (Please advise if unsure regarding this policy)
