Monterey Bay Wedding Photographer

Editorial style Wedding Portrait of a interracial couple sitting in front of local artwork in San Francisco venue.

My style of photography is rooted in photojournalism, influenced by the fine arts. The result is creative, clean, and crisp wedding photography that’s romantic, emotional, and lively.

"COVID-19 had us changing and updating our wedding plans almost up until the day of! Throughout all of it, Danieka was professional, flexible, thoughtful, and responsive. While we were unsure of many details, we were never unsure of our decision to work with her! We were delighted to go through the pictures and see the thought that went into capturing the big moments and little details of our day. We were nervous about being in front of a camera, but Danieka did an excellent job of making us feel comfortable and most importantly, like ourselves. Don't hesitate to work with such a sweet and professional photographer!"

"Danieka has a great eye for candid moments. In addition to taking wonderful photos, she is a kind and accommodating person. She drove about an hour away to a place she'd never been for our engagement shoot, even going before to scout out some good spots. She listens to requests very well, and got all our "must-have" photos for the wedding, along with a bunch of really great guest photos from the reception!"

-Olivia Ady

"From our very first call, I KNEW Danieka was the photographer for us. She was flexible -- and in an age of COVID and crazy planning, I can't stress ENOUGH how important flexibility and empathy has been -- and really focused on what WE wanted. Danieka was more concerned about our style, our goals and what we wanted...so that she could bring ideas that would make every moment OURS.

On the day, she was in all the spots to capture all THE moments.

I can't say enough about Danieka other than this...you WILL NOT REGRET having Danieka be part of your day. She isn't just there to snap photos that look like everyone else's wedding album. She is there to capture YOU and all the joy, laughter and special moments that will happen between you and your friends and loved ones."
