My life is best lived with a coffee in hand, sneaking in early morning yoga sessions before my two toddlers wake, spending long hours at the beach with our Frenchies, adventuring in nature and plant shopping. You can never have too many house plants (said no husband ever!)
I first fell in love with the lens as a child and even majored in photography in High School before jumping head first into Business Management and Visual Merchandising in my early adulthood. While on maternity leave with my first baby (the perfect little subject) I picked up the camera again and well, the rest is history.
Photos can transport you back to an exact moment in time; and so I like to think of my work as visual storytelling. There's no better feeling than being creative every day, knowing that I'm capturing a unique story that will be cherished for a lifetime. From the nervous excitement as the couple gets ready, to tears of joy at the ceremony, or cheeky dance moves at the reception, weddings are full of priceless moments.
I work anywhere from Byron Bay up to the Sunshine Coast and throughout the Scenic Rim. South East Queensland is full of gorgeous landscapes and scenery that create the perfect backdrop for stunning wedding photography. Why weddings? Because I LOVE, love stories and am a true romantic at heart! Weddings are full of magic, beauty, and authentic, irreplaceable moments and details waiting to be captured everywhere you turn. On such a momentous and emotional day, anything can happen, and it’s my privilege to help preserve those memories. Every love story is unique and special, and it’s a pleasure to help couples experience and document their journey together.
I would love to meet you and learn more about your story.
"It's important you find someone whose work you LOVE - But I believe it's just as important you find someone who will bring out the best of who you are in your photos!"
I call Gold Coast our home but also cover Byron Bay to the Sunshine Coast including the Scenic Rim and take on limited destination weddings per year.
50-80 photos per hour, reliant on whether you’ve booked a second shooter. On average you’ll be laughing, crying and snorting all over each other looking back through 400-700+ images. Depending on how many hours we are together, and what level of crazy we’re at on the day! You’ll need plenty of wine for the show, that’s for sure.
It will take 4-6 weeks to receive your wedding photos. I’m a one-woman show and I put a lot of love and care into each image – these things take time.
Once your upfront Booking Fee is paid, the date is yours. From this point on, I refer all other couples onto other photographers. I hope you understand that this is insurance for my business to stay afloat in the event of a cancellation. If you choose to postpone, there are options and we can discuss them!
Hell yeah! We’re lucky to rub shoulders with some of the most talented vendors getting around, and I want to help you find them. I’m not only here to make epic memories and capture some stunning photos, but to make your entire experience as easy and exciting as possible. So please let me know if you would like to pick my brain about absolutely anything!
From the moment we met Danielle at our first meeting, we knew her calm and friendly presence and her professionalism was exactly what we were looking for for our wedding photographer. Danielle and her assistant Maleika were able to capture our wedding day and our vision perfectly. My husband and I, our family and friends felt so comfortable and at ease with Dani’s photography expertise. We received such incredible photos, making it very difficult to choose our favourites. We are SO in love with our photos and we loved having Danielle and Maleika apart of our special day. We will definitely be using Danielle for all our future photography.
We have used Danielle for 3 shoots now, both for business and a wedding, and we could not be happier with each and every shot that we have received back... Danielle makes you feel so comfortable and somehow works her magic to shoot photos that capture the true essence of who you are... I could recommend her highly enough, she is the very best!!
Danielle was the kindest and sweetest photographer who made us all feel so comfortable. She not only picked the best location but the photos we received back were just magic. She really has an incredible talent. We will cherish them forever. Thank you xxx
