Photographing weddings has allowed me VIP access into the most impactful moments of people’s lives. As a photographer I’ve been molded and changed for the better, just by being present in the room. A wedding is surely a celebration, but it's also this symbol of two families coming together and sharing love for the couple. I often reflect back to my own wedding and family as I photograph my clients’ day, and feel all of those intense feelings again. Apart from the actual photographs I deliver to my clients, I think the best experience I can offer is caring about the couple, caring about their family dynamics and the symbolic details of the event. I’m someone who gives her all to every wedding, large or small, and I think that’s who you want in your corner throughout the entire process. As Randy Newman says, “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”.
Most of the wedding day is documented in a candid way, meaning I try to be as unobtrusive as possible. From getting ready, to the ceremony and the reception toasts, cake smashing and ultimate dance party, a candid photographic approach is ideal. The formal wedding photographs are also where I specialize in gently and naturally posing my couples, to showcase their love in creative ways that match their personalities. The couples portraits are the evidence of your love story, and the images that will fill the walls of your home. My hope is that if you should encounter tough times in the future, that these formal photographs of you and your spouse bring you back to that moment, helping to remember the love you felt.
A really helpful thing I do for all of my wedding clients is create a customized wedding photo timeline, to keep us all organized. On your wedding day I want you to be fully enjoying every minute with your loved ones, and not concerned with any photography-related questions. From our initial consultation, communicating and touching base with you throughout the months leading up to your wedding, BellaFoto Studios is more than just your photographer- I am your friend and a trusted resource.

“Danielle and Kurt. That alone says it all for me. I booked them two years out, almost, and most of my vendors were like “so call me when its closer.” Danielle jumped right in and made me feel like I was her most important client. My engagement photos were perfect- or so I thought- until she captured our wedding day!!! Absolutely amazing!!! If you want passion, perfection, responsiveness, professionalism and perfect pictures at a more than reasonable price, then look no further”.
“Danielle and Kurt are absolutely amazing! We were insistent on having our dogs be a part of everything, and they were so goo with them. They made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera (it’s not as easy as you think). During our reception you didn’t even notice them. They just blended right in and took amazing candids and group shots. Their studio is fabulous and welcoming. I CANNOT say enough good things about them. Their initial presentation was professional and welcoming, and that is what sold me. Danielle was with me every step of the way leading up to the wedding and helped me with things I didn’t even realize I needed. I can now say we have two new friends after this process. Love them!”
“I wish I could give Danielle and Kurtis 10 stars! We are more than pleased with the variety of shots they both took on our wedding day in July!!! Not only were they all absolutely beautiful, Danielle is very quick to get you a sneak peek. I’m so happy that we hired BellaFoto Studios as our wedding photographer and we are looking forward to hopefully one day have her shoot photos of our children! Thank you for capturing every moment of our special day!”
“Danielle is simply the best at what she does. Leading up to our wedding day she met with us numerous times to make sure she completely understood our vision, and it was clear from the start that she really wanted to get to know us. Always a professional, she is very organized and great with follow up. She helped us make a wedding day timeline that allowed us to get all the shots we were hoping for (not an easy feat with our large families) and still have the time to enjoy our wedding reception, which was important to us. Above all else she is sweet, patient, and a wonderful and calming presence to have on your wedding day. She let us have fu with our bridal portraits, but also captured some amazing classic shots. So many people told me after the wedding that they loved both Danielle and Kurtis. Sweet, accommodating, and easily able to blend in, they captured every moment I wanted perfectly, and surprised us with so many more! Last but not least, the pictures came out beautifully!! I am so glad we chose to trust Danielle and Kurtis with our wedding photos - by far one of the best wedding choices we made!”
