I'm sure your mind is racing with all that needs to be planned. You are organizing every detail of the day that you've been anticipating your entire life and yet you only get one shot at it! By the time you get the hang of it, the planning is over!
My goal as a wedding photographer is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Photography is more than just images, it has the power to capture the heart of your day. You deserve beautiful images and an amazing photography experience. My goal is to help couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera which results in genuine, joyful images! When my couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images! Thinking back to my own wedding day, I remember so many amazing memories but the moments that are vivid are the ones that were captured in my pictures. They are priceless to me. Our photographers made us feel so incredibly comfortable and for the first time I got to experience what it feels like to be in front of the camera as a bride and I hope that I can do the same thing for you!

We schedule your engagement session.

You walk down the aisle, say your vows and get your party on. I photograph, I laugh, I cry, I dance and feel all the feels. I am just so grateful you've invited me into your lives to be such an important part of your wedding day.
Once you’ve booked a wedding package with me, I will mail you my complete wedding magazine. I designed this 70+ page magazine to help all my couples prepare for their big day! I cover everything from engagement session prep, timeline help, first looks, ceremony tips, and so much more!
My couples deserve the very best and I can’t wait for you to get this in your hands!
YOU'VE GOT QUESTIONS
Should we do a first look?
I always recommend that my couples do a “first look” mainly because it’s the only time just the two of you will have together on your entire wedding day. It’s such a special moment to share between the two of you before you say “I do.” It also frees some couples up to attend their cocktail hour.
We are often asked if 8 hours is enough time to capture the full wedding story and the answer is yes! Our main goal right now is securing and saving your date. You can always add additional coverage as we get closer to the big day and we have a good idea of your timeline. I do recommend at least 10 hours of coverage if you plan to get married at a church or location separate than the reception venue. This allows for travel time from location to location.
I edit and deliver every beautiful photo. This is typically 50+ for engagement sessions and 500+ for weddings. I love delivering client’s files quickly and easily via an online gallery. You will have the ability to print, share and download your images as much as you want. I believe in freely sharing my work because that is what I would want if I were in your shoes!
Do you edit all of your photos?
Yes, once I have culled the images for your gallery, I lightly edit and color correct. Being that I am a lifestyle photographer, I don’t over-edit my images. I don’t do any airbrushing or body manipulation whatsoever. I do, however, remove any noticeable blemishes or anything that doesn’t compliment the photograph.
What is the turnaround for us to receive our online gallery of images?
Wedding galleries typically are given 6-8 weeks post wedding. Each session is placed on an online gallery that is password protected and easy to download!
Can we see other images taken from the session besides the ones given in the gallery?
No. Please know you are thought of during the editing process and I have chosen the best images from our session together. I do not release any additional, unedited or untouched (RAW) images. There is no reason to have an image in an unflattering angle or a shot not entirely in focus. I’ve got your best interest at heart. Promise.
What should we wear to our Engagement session?
I thought you’d never ask! Ha! Your outfit choices in my opinion are a very important. Style is important as it helps dress the image. Focus on the environment we are shooting in, as well as your personal features. It doesn’t hurt to keep the climate in mind, too. I work hard at making sure my Pinterest board for outfit suggestions is always up to date and is loaded with good options. You can check it out here: www.pinterest.com/daniellewraith
Once I have answered any questions you may have and you have decided that our Wedding Experience is exactly what you’re looking for on your wedding day, the next step is a booking proposal. I will create an online proposal that will walk you through the package and when you’re ready you can save your date by signing your contract and paying your non refundable deposit online to hold and secure your date. Weddings should be booked anywhere from eight months to a year from your wedding date.
SWEET WORDS FROM MY
— COOPER & BREANNE
"Danielle is such an amazing and sweet photographer. She's very creative and talened and made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera! Our pictures turned out amazing and were just what we were lookig for! Danielle took our engagement pictures and wedding pictures! She was so willing & happy to drive to the beach for our engagement pictures. For our wedding, she was able to find ribbon for my bouquet in less than a week before my wedding and brought multiple colors I could choose from! I would recommend any friend or stranger to her! Loved her so much!"

So many tears of joy! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!!!!! They’re just perfect! I’m so grateful for you!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
- CHELSEA & Marc
"Our experience with Danielle was hands down 11/10!! My husband and I had a destination wedding in Napa Valley so we didn’t meet Danielle in person until our Welcome Party (the day before our wedding) but I already felt like she was one of my best friends! I found Danielle on Instagram and we became fast Insta-friends! I was already obsessed with her work but the experience of having her as our photographer was above and beyond what I ever imagined when hiring a Wedding Photographer. She kept in touch with us the entire year leading up to our wedding making the process so very special. Her creativity, professionalism, organization, and passion all come together to create a true experience! On the wedding day she made me feel calm and relaxed when my nerves were running high before the ceremony and she captured all the emotions of our day which we will cherish forever! Danielle isn’t just a photographer, she has become a friend & that is the exact way to describe the experience of working with her!"

"I hired Danielle to do a Branding Shoot for my business and WOW, words can't express how amazing each and every photo was. She captured every image that I had in my head and brought it to life. From the photos alone, I feel like my brand is communicated perfectly. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for someone to capture the essence of their business, both in a broad spectrum and in detail. AMAZING!"
