get to know me

I’ll always encourage you to make your day your own.

As a Colorado elopement photographer, of course I am here to capture your day with beautiful photos. But to me, it’s about more than that. 

It’s about honest and artful stories to leave behind as your legacy.

Stories of fleeting moments of big love and precious seconds that are truly once in a lifetime. It’s about how, in this life we’re all living, nothing is permanent.  

Sharing our stories, celebrating who we are, and preserving moments of love – that is what is most important to me. 

And that’s why I do what I do. 

Because when everything else fades away – photos remind us that we not only lived, but we mattered. 

Unfiltered and untamed storytelling of your best moments

You should feel seen, heard, and celebrated on all days, but especially your wedding day.
With every elopement I photograph, I take these things pretty dang seriously.

If I'm going to be there on your most intimate day yet, I'd love to share a bit more about my story with you. 

Over a decade ago, I was diagnosed with epilepsy. As health issues often do, it came out of nowhere and even as an angsty 15 year old, it changed everything for me. Suddenly, I was experiencing seizures that left me feeling hopeless and terrified. It was right then that I realized just how precious and fleeting this life is for all of us. 

Thankfully time has done its thing and I’ve been able to live a life that feels full, healthy, and normal (though what even is normal these days?!). But I'll never forget the feeling it left me with. I’ll always have the deepest desire to experience as much as I can and to document it all along the way. 

So when it came time to choose a career path, photography was a no-brainer. And after spending almost half of my life viewing the world through the lens of my camera, there is still nothing as fulfilling and thrilling as photographing moments between two people who are crazy in love. 

And capturing you as you say screw it to tradition and get married as you please? It’s the icing on the elopement cake. 

We love a little rebel-hearted love around here. 

 (and why the hell I care so much about your photos)


Monique H.

During our photo shoot she made every thing so easy and comfortable, I was like we’ve known her for years. She had how she wanted us to pose, the looks we requested and more. I’m telling you if you’re looking for a photographer who can and will capture every sweet & funny moment, for any occasion, she’s ya girl! HER WORK IS AMAZING!!!

'Danielle is a great photographer, there’s no one else I would recommend.'

Kelly S.

Dani was the absolute PERFECT photographer for my elopement. She went above and beyond...She was helpful with my dress and holding my coat if I needed her to.  On top of what a delight she is as a person, her photos are incredible! This woman is a trooper and I will forever be grateful for the memories she captures for my husband and me!

'I instantly felt at we had been friends for years'

Terra A.

She thinks of everything.... We had a photoshoot on a cold winter day and my hands were freezing and there she was prepared with hand warmers. We'll cherish her work for a lifetime. <3

'Danielle makes sure to capture exactly what it is you are looking for'

Don’t be shy, say hey!

There’s truly an elopement photographer for every couple and sometimes I’m not it.
But if you’re looking for a Colorado loving, adventure chasing, experience planning,
big-hearted elopement photographer to capture your day…

I just might be the one you’re looking for.
