Your Day:
Your Way

ask yourself this honest question: what do you want your day to feel  like? 

Whether your dream elopement involves hiking up your favorite mountain or a new one, an epic adventure with a helicopter, having a backyard elopement with just a few of your favorite people or traveling across the world, you deserve to have a day that is meaningful, heartfelt, and fun.

 

Your wedding day is arguably the most intimate and connected day of your life- how absolutely breathtaking would it be to seal your hearts to one another overlooking one of this earth's most stunning landscapes or doing an activity that truly tells the story of who you are?

my philosophy

I have this philosophy that your wedding is a unique-to-you recipe and the ingredients I recommend you include for the most delicious, juiciest wedding are:

  • breaking the mold

  • adventure

  • intimacy  

  • authenticity- being true to you

  • fun & wonder

  • emotion & connection

  • a location that helps tell your story

Mix it all together and what’ve you got? a badass, unique, and memorable wedding day that opens the doors for being present, having a blast and soaking up the intimacy on your wedding day.

you deserve for your day to be uniquely you

This is your story, after all!

I will be there to help you from the day you and I decide to work together, through your elopement day and even after with helping you design your album and keeping your memories safe.

If having an intimate wedding or elopement has crossed your mind but maybe you thought you just couldn't pull it off- I'm here to tell you that you can! The magical part about elopements is that they can be literally anything you want them to be. I'll not only be capturing the day of, but also helping you design, curate, plan, and execute your dream elopement!  Dream BIG because no adventure is too big for me.

this is your day so make it count!

what is an elopement?

When I first told my grandparents that Nick and I were planning an elopement, they almost fell over! To them, eloping meant running off and getting married without telling anyone, usually lots of spontaneity involved...which can absolutely still be true! The word elopement is evolving though, and the word has become much more fluid than what our grandparents and parents knew. 

I believe an elopement is a wedding where the experience and intimacy are prioritized.

 

Whether that means the two of you saying vows on the top of your favorite mountain or getting married in the backyard of your Grandma's house with 10 of your closest loved ones- an elopement is all about the story. The thing I love most about elopements is that there are no 'rules'- the day is entirely up to you to dream up. 

 

It's less stress, less family drama, less pressure to impress or please others;

the focus is on YOU and your adventure.

what others are saying  

Dani photographed my tiny, 3 guest, backyard, pandemic wedding in August 2021. Despite a tiny wedding, it was important to us to have physical memories in the form of professional photos. After two other photographers fell through, stars aligned & Dani flew from New York to Wisconsin 2 weeks later. (She made it even though her flights were delayed and she ended up having to drive hours overnight to get to us!) I’m SO glad that we had a photographer, and that it was Dani! Taking photos allowed for us to have time together to let the love sink in. Dani was easy and fun to be around, and joined our gathering seamlessly. She provided gentle guidance and prompting without insisting on stiff poses, but still suggested slight adjustments and kept an eye out for uneven clothing and hair in your face. The photos are absolutely stunning, and she sent us an unexpected sneak peek of photos (87!) the day after our wedding. Those sneak peak photos alone were more than worth it!!! She was also affirming & supportive of our LGBTQ+ wedding & family, and thoughtful and skilled in photographing bodies of varying shapes & sizes.
