weddings

Congratulations on your engagement! I'm so excited for you both!

Planning a wedding can be a lot, as your wedding photographer I'm here to help. I understand putting all the pieces of a wedding together can be a little overwhelming, but with my experience I can guide you through this process. I want to make your experience as easy as possible. 

THE EXPERIENCE

Your wedding is a celebration of your love and marks the beginning of a great new adventure together.

I suggest locations with the most beautiful lighting and curate poses that spark emotion. My bright and airy fine art photography creates stunning timeless images bursting with joy and love.

You've chosen me, YAY! Next, I'll send an electronic contract for you to sign with an invoice for the 50% non-refundable retainer. I want to make it easy, so just follow your link to pay. Once your contract and retainer are completed, your wedding date is booked and I'm yours!

Bridal Sessions are a pre-wedding photography session (1-2 months before your wedding day...but sometimes after!)  usually paired with your trial run for hair and makeup and sample bouquet. It's extra time to enjoy wearing your wedding dress without the pressure of your wedding day. We spend time getting every dreamy detail in a fun and relaxed way. Some brides like to make this a girls night and invite their wedding party!

COLORADO SPRINGS RESORT

back to the galleries

Danell is amazing and we are so happy that she was the one to photograph our wedding!!!! She is so talented, dedicated, fun and energetic, creative, thorough, and organized. We are in LOVE with all our pictures, which are super high quality- and Danell has such a gift for spotting noteworthy details while capturing the larger story of the day. I was super impressed with all the unique poses she got us in and existing backdrops she identified. Her bubbly, fun personality is confidence-boosting and she drew us out of our shells to get natural reactions though we aren't ordinarily photo-posing people. 

- Rachel & Will

"She is so talented, dedicated, fun...and organized. We are in LOVE with our images"

THEY HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

I cherish the photographs that Danell took for us. The pictures that she captured show the raw emotions. We were able to live the moment and allow Danell to capture it in her photography. There was no juggling of cameras or phones, or being distracted; we were truly there, wholly present, and experiencing the happiness and serenity of the entire experience.

- Sheila & Damien

She responded quickly to any questions I had, and the turn around for our photos were as promised. She made it fun with her bubbly personality. For anyone looking to have your precious memory's photographed perfectly; Danell is the one for you!
