I'm Danielle, but
you can call me Dani.
A conceptual thinking goofball who is inspired and dedicated to photographing and showcasing real, raw and authentic moments and creating timeless and strategic content. To say that I love what I do is an understatement, to me being a creative isn’t a job it’s a lifestyle. I currently reside in Munster, IN with my dog Wrigley, but have a true desire to travel the world. I love being able to meet new people and showcase everyone’s personal narrative. Some other things that I love: NPR, coffee, design, coconut milk, The Devil Wears Prada, a solid IPA-especially if it’s a double, musicals, hiking, cooking, Instagram, marketing and advertising, church, Parks & Rec and the Chicago Cubs. Feel free to bond with me over any of the aforementioned items. I’m sure we’ll
get along. Cheers!
I started my craft as a visual storyteller when I was a junior in high school. I picked up a simple digital camera and started taking pictures of well, myself. And to my surprise, I discovered my eye for photography. By starting my journey of selfie-taking, I learned I have a true passion for creating. I went on to get my BA in 2010, specializing in art studio with an emphasis in graphic design while starting my career journey in 2013, and officially graduating in 2014. I have fulfilled multiple advertising and marketing roles as well as production roles as a designer and photographer since. My experiences in the industry have armed me with a very broad skill set, from managing creative teams, being responsible for the design & imagery, creative concepts and final outputs including social media content, print and web development. I work very hard to get the best from the teams I work with and to push creativity to achieve my client's goals.

Frequently Asked Questions
What do your packages include?
I provide a variety of different packages to fit your needs. If you're looking for a mini or regular photo session it's broken down by time, location and other details. These types of shoots could include engagement, family, maternity, newborn, the sky is the limit!
Elopement packages are styled to fit a variety of commitment day needs. It's totally cool that that every wedding is different so I wanted my packages to reflect that. They can range from 3 to 2+ days, and the option for a second photographer and videographer is always available.
All shoots and packages booked with us also include high-res digital images with print rights (more on that if you keep clicking!)
