Choosing Danielle James was easily one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! From our first meeting to receiving our wedding photos, the process was so fun and easy with Danielle! Our wedding photos are everything and more than we could have ever dreamed of! Our photos were even published on Borrowed and Blue! How awesome is that?!? We can't express our gratitude enough, that we get to relive our wedding day everyday through Danielle's incredible photos!

"ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS WE MADE FOR OUR WEDDING."

When we were looking for a photographer, we were looking for someone we could trust for our wedding and what we found was a photographer for all future life events. My husband and I hate having our pictures taken. We have always felt awkward about where to stand, how to smile, and what to do with our silly hands?!? Danielle immediately put us at ease, as if we were old friends just hanging out. She captured the light, our surroundings, and most importantly both of our personalities and our bond perfectly and effortlessly. On our wedding day, Danielle not only captured the special moments we hoped to remember forever, she captured the impromptu moments we didn't remember at all. Our guests raved about how they barely noticed she was there. 

"DANIELLE IMMEDIATELY PUT US AT EASE"

Danielle took our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures and I truly couldn't be happier. I am three months past my wedding day and I find myself lost in my wedding pictures just reminiscing about one of the best days of my life. Your wedding day goes by so fast and it is so hard to remember every moment but Danielle captured every little detail. The thing I love most about Danielle was how she was able to effortlessly capture the little moments.. the looks, laughs, and kisses shared between me and my husband, bridal party, family, and friends. The most reoccurring compliment I received about our pictures were how natural and happy we and everyone else looked at our wedding and that is all thanks to Danielle. Our smiles on our pictures are real and not forced and faked. 

"I TRULY COULDN'T BE HAPPIER"

So much love here
