THREE SHOOTS LATER and I cannot believe I haven't written a review for you yet. It might be because I rave about you to everyone who wants to listen to me talk about my wedding. I have had the pleasure of knowing Dani since we were small humans. I'm talking like first grade. So maybe my review is a little biased because I just love the girl and knowing her for so long went a long way in how comfortable I felt in front of the camera, but it's mind-blowing how talented she is and how tremendously she cares for each of her clients and the work she creates for them. We were so excited that we could have both her and her husband at our wedding, and having James (her hubs) there went a LONG way in making Tim (my hubs) feel that much more comfortable not only in front of the camera, but for the whole day. Dani's professionalism never wavered having James around though - if anything, she worked twice as hard to make sure she captured every special moment for us! It so helped us having James around making us laugh, driving us around, and making sure we stayed hydrated the whole day (we're talking mid-July in Southern California!). Dani thrives off of adventure - she does her homework and scouts ahead for places to shoot before the event, making everything more streamlined and smooth. Her editing skills are stunning and the moments she captures are unparalleled. When you hire her, you're putting your trust in HER and what she's capable of, and you really do gain a friend in the process. I couldn't recommend her more. I'll be searching for excuses to hire her again in the future! Thank you Dani (and James!) for everything you've done for us!!
I loved how easy it was to work with her. She is prompt, reliable and fun to work with. I was hesitant booking a higher end photographer just because I didn’t know really what to expect but every penny was worth it in the end. It was an experience I’ll never forget.
We loved everything about Dani! Dani is beyond talented. Her attention to detail is amazing. Her use of lighting is timeless and her attitude is full of energy. Our friends and family keep speaking about how stunning the photos are from the big day. We loved Dani’s use of non posed photos. They came out more authetic and genuine and we couldn’t be more happier. Everything about these photos speaks fairytale dream come true. Thank you so much.
Dani is such a people person, I had no hesitation in booking her because she has such a gracious presence about her on all platforms. She is so genuine and she's not afraid to be a little goofy, and honestly that's what makes her so comfortable to work with. She does such a good job at giving you direction but not making you feel forced or awkward about it. The best part about who she is and what her business is about is that she's genuinely there to be a friend, she was so kind to both me and my husband and I may be a little bit biased but honestly I don't think I would ever book another photographer besides her if I needed photos taken. She has such a unique creative eye and she is genuinely so excited about all things love! Thank you sweet Dani for not just our engagement photos but also our beautiful wedding photos, you were such a joy to work with!
YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY FREAKIN AMAZING!!!!!!! How do I deserve you??????? I wish I can have another wedding / couple shooting again. I'm not kidding!!! I can't thank you enough to be our photographer. We have so so much fun with you on the wedding day & the engagement photos too! Not only just me and Chad love taking photos with you, all our guests in the wedding loves you as well! Everyone loves your energy, your enthusiastic, you silly and of course, your AMAZING photos.
Dani was more than we expected! She was so happy and very calm on our wedding day. Her passion for photography did not go unnoticed! She even came to the rehearsal to scope it out and stayed longer than she was supposed to take pictures. She got me a few pictures by the next morning which made me even more excited to see all our photos. She was always on time and took all the photos that I wanted to be taken. I highly recommend Dani and will definitely use her in the future!
“Dani was everything I hoped for in a photographer and more. She was outgoing, professional, timely, and artistic, among other things. I never really understood what it meant to truly capture emotions in a photo until I saw our wedding photos. As you can tell from her portfolio, Dani is obviously extremely talented at what she does. But beyond the photos, she brought us water and snacks, danced around and interacted with our guests, made sure everyone stayed on track with our photo timeline, and was even gracious enough to stay past her paid time to capture a beautiful group photo with the sunset. I 100% recommend Dani and hope to work with her again in the future for an anniversary shoot. Thank you again!”
"Dani Purington is an amazing photographer! 5-star all around!!! She not only did my family's pictures at the Utah State Capitol, but she also did my husband's and I's adventure session for our upcoming 5 year anniversary. We went to Arches National Park and it was amazing!!! Dani made it super fun and very comfortable (ex: playing music to help get us in a fun, intimate, playful, adventurous mood). She captured my family's personality and the fun personality of my husband and I. She also did a phenomenal job capturing the beauty of Arches National Park. I just looked at our collection and to say the least.... I'm in love with every photo!! If you want photos done by a professional photographer, you need to contact Dani ASAP!"
"Dani is the sweetest, most caring professional photographer I have ever had the pleasure to do business with! She took the time to get to know my husband (then-fiancé :) ) and I before we started our engagement session and got a sense of who we were as a couple and what kind of look we wanted with our photos and afterwards was pure fun and magic! She makes you feel so comfortable and free. I was a little nervous about being in front of the camera but it felt so natural and was a good mix of her directing us yet giving us the freedom to showcase our love. She knew the perfect locations that gave amazing light and was super encouraging when shooting with us. She gives teasers back the next day that are simply GORGEOUS and you just want to post them all! I received SO many compliments over her photos and comments of how great of a photographer she was at our wedding as well. Everyone was telling me how sweet and great she was and it made me feel so proud to have her as our photographer! Every angle, every instant, she was there capturing those perfect moments! You get tons of beautifully edited photos from your perfect day that you will most likely end up printing out a bunch to put in frames around your house (like me!). My husband and I could not have asked for a better photographer! Thank you SO much, Dani!!"
"Dani is a natural. She has a staggering talent and was a total professional from start to finish. Normally, I'm pretty stiff and uncomfortable in front of a camera but she really put me at ease and I love the way our photos turned out because of it. From the very beginning, she was collaborative and accommodating. She was mindful to capture our 'good side,' entertained our ideas for fun snapshots and even made friends with our big dogs (she got them to smile and wag for the camera, too). It was a pleasure to have Dani as a guest in our home and after our shoot, I consider her a friend. I'm proud to recommend her without reservation. Whether you need someone to capture your special day, a big event, or a special connection that just can't be described in words, she's your gal. We'll always treasure the photos she captured and, although it surprises me to say this; I'm eager for the opportunity to get in front of her camera again. Thanks for everything, Dani!"
Indy and Chad had been looking forward to this day for so stinking long!! From dating in high school to YEARS later where they finally get to tie the knot, it was an emotional day. As the redwoods towered over us and Indy walked up to Chad for the first time during their first look, Chad got to see his bride for the first time on their wedding day and became overwhelmed with emotions. He began to tear up as Indy wiped the tears from his face.
Their day started off unexpectedly. Megan and Hayden were expecting sun and golden hour photos on the beaches of beautiful La Jolla, CA, but with the season California was having that winter, it was scheduled to be a stormy day. But even with the forecast, we were able to create some beautifully special photos!
Oh wow, this couple, this day, and this wedding are one of my favorites to date. Not only because I know the couple (...and pretty much everyone that attended their wedding!!), but also because their day had such a timeless beauty to it. It was fantastic .
