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!!
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!"
"Dani is one of the best photographers my fiance and I have worked with! She is such a joy to be around and makes it so fun and easy being in front of the camera. She always knows how to make her clients feel relaxed and stress free! Not only does she capture the perfect photos, she takes the time to get to know us and our love story. She truly is such a wonderful and talented photographer and I would highly recommend her if you're looking for someone to capture your love so beautifully and naturally. Thank you, Dani for such an amazing shoot! We love ALL of our photos! Can't wait until the next time you take our pictures."
"I LOVED how comfortable she made us feel! During the portrait sessions, the poses felt so natural, and she always reassured us of how cute we looked ;) I think my favorite part was walking out to the first look. It was a surreal moment as it is, but she had love songs playing on her little speaker, and it made it feel that much more like a movie scene!
Also, I was so impressed by how quickly we got our photos back. Was expecting not to get them for a couple months! Related to that, we LOVED getting some previews the morning after! So fun!"
"I've seen Dani's work countless of times and I just knew that she would be perfect for me! She was willing to drive up to Los Angeles to take my graduation pictures. She spent an hour with me, sent me so many beautifully edited pictures, and I love every single one. While taking the pictures, Dani listened to what I wanted, but also came with her own ideas that I loved; she makes you feel so comfortable and makes everything perfect. Also, she sent the pictures in a timely manner. Dani truly has talent, and I'm so happy that I made the right choice for her to capture my graduation pictures."
"Dani and her husband are truly amazing people! Dani really works with you and captures every magical moment. My fiancé and I just went to take some fun photos, we hadn't taken our engagement photos yet, they turned out amazing and we're now using them for our engagement photos! Dani is so personable and makes you feel so comfortable to be infront of a camera, which can be really nerve racking. She managed to make my fiancé and I fall back in love all over again by just having so much fun during the shoot. I would highly recommend her to everyone that is looking for any type of photography! Thank you Dani so much!"
"My boyfriend are not ones to take a lot of photos (He's very camera shy). It was out of our ordinary to get professional pictures taken and to be quite honest, I was hoping it wouldn't be a complete disaster. Five minutes into meeting Dani, I felt like we had been friends forever. She wasn't just taking pictures of us, she was getting to know us. She wanted to capture our relationship and story which very few people have the talent of doing. We all became so comfortable with each other. I cannot express how happy I am about not only the pictures, but the experience we had. I will definitely be going back to Dani for all my future photography needs. Cannot wait to plan shoots with her again!
Dani is amazing! She photographed my wedding and I could not have asked for anything better! She captured every single special moment throughout the entire day, which is a huge task, but she definitely delivered and then some. Looking at the photos now, I am actually still trying to figure out how she got some of the shots that she did because there are definitely some in there that I did not even know she took, and that right there, is the sign of an amazing photographer! The photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined, she really went above and beyond. They all look so natural and perfect, like she was able to just freeze time in that exact moment. She even catered to my major case of OCD and managed to fix my crooked veil in a few of my favorite shots, and she was also really patient and always happy to make any changes I needed. Dani is a sweetheart and not only was she an amazing photographer at my wedding, but she was also an amazing friend too, reassuring me all day that I looked amazing, making sure everyone had everything as we left the hotel to head over to the church, and making sure I was having a great time the entire night (I think she may have done a better job of "tending to the bride" than my bridesmaids!). I will definitely be going to her for all my future photography needs. I give Dani 100 stars because 5 is just simply not enough!
