I stumbled across Dana (and thank goodness I did!) while searching on Instagram to find the perfect photographer for my vision. I honestly could not have asked for a better experience! She was nothing less than amazing. She brought this sense of calm to my wedding day that is indescribable. We had a few hiccups with my special day and Dana STILL helped me stay calm and game planned on how to make my day special. As another photographer friend says “she captured the energy of the day perfectly! It felt like I was there experiencing the day with you!”. My husband also really appreciated that nothing felt super unnatural either. She helped us, just be “us” and captured our vibes and GORGEOUS pictures throughout. I am stoked that I happen to stumble across this talented woman and can not wait to have her photograph other important events. Coming from an extreme type “A” personality... Dana rocked all my expectations and then some.

she captured the energy of the day perfectly!
