I'm so glad you're here!

I am a born and raised Coloradan currently splitting my time between Denver and San Marcos with my fiancé Colt and our two puppers, Ruckus and Ransom. The best of both worlds, am I right?! We are big lovers of exploring the outdoors whether that be hiking in the mountains or paddle boarding on the river (yup, the doggos too ... we actually call Ransom Captain Ran, haha!) and we both LOVE shaking our booties at live music shows and supporting smaller artists and local venues! This basically means you can count on seeing me throw down some dance moves at your reception while simultaneously singing the lyrics to every.single.song.

Believe it or not, I didn't always know I wanted to be a photographer. I actually thought I was going to be a vet because I'm so passionate about caring for animals but to be honest, I love animals so much that I would have been far too emotional in that profession (okay, okay, I cry at weddings too). So, now I just snuggle all the animals and give them all the treats, volunteer at the shelter when I can and give all the props to our amazing vet for doing all the hard stuff we can't do. 

My superpower is making you feel so dang comfortable in front of the camera that you and your partner not only ENJOY the photo-taking process but you get a gallery full of images that scream YOU and hit you in all the FEELS!

Looking back now, I can definitely see how my path led me to a career as a wedding photographer. I used to set up photo shoots with my friends, we'd put flowers in our hair and I'd pose and direct them. I was always taking a camera to school to document moments and then I'd take all my cameras to get the film developed so I could put every photo in an album. To this day, I still have all of those photo albums! Turns out, I've always been passionate about capturing moments and preserving memories and it's something I deeply care about today.  

So much inspires me; music, light, color, love and movement. Weddings include all of these things and I believe documenting stories of two people with all their loved ones is what I was born to do. I love creating opportunities for my couples to have fun with each other, to let loose, and I'm an expert at making them feel comfortable on camera. But I am also equally as skilled at stepping back, being a super ninja and documenting all the real, candid moments of your day that don't need any direction.

As for my style, my images are warm, colorful, crisp, playful and romantic. I am an inclusive, equality minded photographer, I serve all couples and I believe all love stories are beautiful and worth documenting.

I BELIEVE IN:

Straight talk, long hugs, short emails, dancing anytime, anywhere, and cutting out the 'meh' to make room for the very best.

I'm NOT ABOUT:

Working my life away, saying yes to things that don't light me up, skipping coffee in the mornings 

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Adventuring with my dogs and my fiancé (Colt), coffee dates with my besties, dancing like I get paid to do it and jamming out to live music

daily rituals

Morning coffee, cuddles with Colt and our dogs, an at-home workout, swimming in the river (during the summer, of course) and talking to my plants

My Favorite Things

Have you figured out how much I love my dogs yet? Seriously, I'm that helicopter dog mom and I feel no shame! I love documenting them and preserving these memories. Our lives wouldn't be the same without them.

Coffee. Have you gathered yet that I have a coffee obsession? Ah, the best way to start every morning.

Fashion. Listen, I love my workout clothes as much as the next girl, but I do appreciate a perfectly put together and accessorized outfit, especially if it's pink!

Where I stand on the super important stuff... Agree / disagree? 

Danielle is hands down the best photographer in the Texas hill country. I plan weddings and I have seen many photographers work and once I saw her work I knew she was the only photographer I would use for my big day. Danielle herself is so full of life and excitement and makes you feel comfortable but like a movie star at the same time. She walks you through every step of the process, she is organized, artistic, and willing to make your wedding the best day it could be. For my engagement session she even climbed a tree for me to get the perfect shot! - Melissa, 2019 Bride
