Love note from Amy + Steven!

This love note is amazing! So honored to have shot this wedding. Thank you Amy + Steven!

“Dana captured some very special moments–and they were absolutely perfect. Keeping in mind, I’ve taken photography classes so I know…one has to take hundreds to find that special one. Dana captured perhaps one of the most special moments–it was the couple minutes before I walked down the aisle with my dad and in the photo I was smiling up at him as he was looking ahead with a smile on his face. I can’t believe I even considered not hiring any photographer (I’m not much of a wedding person) but in the end, it’s all about the photos because the day goes by in a flash. I am so happy I called Dana. She actually photographed my good friend’s wedding, and as I was a bridesmaid I already knew her easy-going spirit and amazing work. I was considering just eloping, too, but Dana’s photos made me so glad I had a wedding after all. It was a pretty special day. You will be so lucky to have Dana at your wedding.”amysteven0018

Santa Monica Photography: Sarah + Wade

Love this bright, fun, happy engagement shoot at the Santa Monica pier with Sarah and Wade. We had such a good time even though they were nervous at first to get their pictures taken. Sarah wrote me a sweet note after the session that I just loved:

Hi Dana,
Wade and I want to thank you for your treat and also for the wonderful engagement photo session! You made our first photo session so incredibly easy and fun! We felt like we were hanging out with a friend!

Laguna Beach Photography: Leah + Jacob preview

I love when I get thank you cards before my client-friends even see the images! One of my main goals is make it a great experience for both the bride and groom. I want them to feel comfortable and relaxed with my camera so we can get fun and natural pictures.

You and your partner were so nice and sweet to work with the day of the wedding. Jacob doesn’t really like taking pictures but he actually said that he enjoyed it and that you made it really relaxed and easy for him. Thank you again! Can’t wait to see the pictures!”

And here’s two sneak peaks form their wedding.. with one of the most gorgeous sunsets I’ve seen in a long time.
