Coastal California: Natural Light Portrait & Wedding Photographer

I'm a wedding photographer servicing the beautiful California Coast, but am always ready to travel where my amazing couples take me! There is something I've always loved about the coast, and I finally figured it out. It's that breathtaking golden hour that the California coast has to offer. Listening to the ocean waves crash down on that light sandy beach while taking in the most warm and inviting sunset AND photographing my stunning couple in front of it. Does it get any better than that?!

I am over the moon excited that you're here!

I'm Danyelle!

Oh Hey!

"Danyelle is an absolute pleasure to work with and she captured our special day perfectly! From our engagement session to the wedding - Danyelle was always on top of it, and very responsive when we had questions. She took time to really get to know us every step of the way, which really helped make the photos turn out even better because she was able to capture every special moment. Love love love Danyelle!"

Carly & Curtis 

"Danyelle is such a pro at what she does. Not only does she know exactly what she's doing, but she does it in such a way that's full of grace, professionalism & ease. She made us so relaxed on our wedding day & the entire process of working with her was a breeze! Not to mention, her photography style is completely timeless & romantic--couldn't ask for more!"

Daniel & Shannon

"Danyelle has so many characteristics that made her the perfect choice for our wedding. From the start, she was easy to work with and easy to keep in contact with. She was very attentive to the types of shots we liked and was very organized and thorough during the wedding and ceremony. Her photography style is so beautiful and modern and fresh. We loved working with her and highly recommend her!"

Laura & Matt

"Working with Danyelle was amazing. Me and my husband felt incredibly comfortable with her. Taking photos can be intimidating and feel awkward especially if it's not something you're used to doing. She made it fun and relaxing and was able to really read our mood and vibe..."

"Her direction was excellent and made it much easier for us to loosen up and get into a groove. More than anything, we had FUN. We both were grinning the whole time it was almost impossible to look serious. Would highly recommend working with her."
