Hi, I'm dani


My ideal day starts with a warm cup of coffee and a sunrise yoga session before my two little ones wake up. I love spending time with my family at the beach or exploring nature, and nothing beats a long lunch with good friends.

My passion for photography started in childhood and led me to major in it during high school. I eventually shifted gears to business management, but after having my first baby (who was the perfect subject), I picked up the camera again and never looked back.

As a photographer, my goal is to create honest, visually captivating stories and for my clients to feel comfortable enough to let their unique personalities shine through. I'm all about capturing the 'in between' moments and making the experience fun and memorable for everyone involved.

Photography takes me from Byron Bay to Brisbane and the Scenic Rim, where I'm constantly inspired by the breathtaking landscapes and scenery. There's nothing more fulfilling than using my creativity to capture moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Why do I specialise in elopement photography? Simple – I'm a hopeless romantic at heart! I love documenting intimate, authentic moments between couples that are uniquely special to them. I believe every love story is worth telling, and it's an honour to be a part of my clients' journey together.

If you're looking for a photographer who's passionate, fun, and dedicated to capturing your love story, I can't wait to meet you and hear more about your story.

Where are you based?

I call Gold Coast home home but also cover Byron Bay to the Brisbane including the Scenic Rim and take on limited destination weddings per year.

Do you Photograph large Weddings

I have been photographing weddings for many years but these days specialise in elopements and intimate weddings (under 20 guests.) That being said I do still take on a very limited amount of weddings per year. Please feel free to reach out for my wedding availability. 

How long will it take to receive our photos?

It will take approximately 4-5 weeks to receive your images. I’m a one-woman show and I put a lot of love and care into each image – these things take time.

What if we cancel or move our booking?

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!

Are there any vendors that you recommend?

Hell yeah! I've been 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!

"Danielle is everything a bride could wish for in a photographer.
From start to finish she had incredible communication and made my now husband and I feel so confident in front of the camera. On the day she was so much fun and made everything flow effortlessly. She sent through the sneak peak photos within days and they were just perfect!
I couldn’t recommend her enough!"

~ Dana + Ryan

“ Where do I begin. Danielle advertises as a photographer, but I feel like she is selling herself short. She actually doubles as an event coordinator, entertainment and she takes some bang on pictures while she is doing it. I think hiring Danielle might well be the best investment of the whole wedding."

~ Ellen + Brenden

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
