Heyo, it's me!

I am SO hyped you're here! Here are some fun little facts about me and my approach:)

I fell in love with photography when I was in middle school, got my first camera in high school, and started to seriously pursue this as a profession more than a hobby in November of 2020 (end of college).

At sessions, I love prompting you until you have the confidence to express your genuine self. I want to establish authentic connections between everyone present and, most importantly, I want to learn about you!

Never stepped in front of a camera? Unsure of what to do with your hands? Scared of looking awkward? I relate. But I'm here to help you recognize the beauty the Creator placed within you so that such a captivating light can radiate outwardly.

Photography is not about perfectly posed and poised people. Out of all the things I have seen and all the places I have visited, I have found nothing to be more beautiful than capturing the stories of souls.

So let's meet up! I'm down for an elopement in the mountains, a self-love lifestyle session on the beach, cozy in-home vibes, or anything in between. Let's slow down time, freeze the moment, and uncover the depths of your love and your life.

Danielle Renee Mendoza (female; aka Dani): 5' 3/4", voted most likely to brighten your day, a vivacious Catholic, and certified third-wheeler at all sessions. Loves to dance at random, hike all terrains, sip iced coffee, cry when the bride first enters the ceremony, and hype you the heck up.

"Danielle is one of the most genuine easy going photographers I've ever worked with. She knows exactly what poses and positions that photograph well! However, she will make sure you feel natural and comfortable throughout the whole shoot. I brought my two dogs and my fiancé with me. She managed to get photos of all four of us AND of just my fiancé and I. Seriously, book her. You will not regret."
