I have had the absolute pleasure of meeting so many really kind hearted people along this journey of photographing weddings. Beneath is a few people who have taken the time to write some kind words about their experience with me throughout their wedding, I am so very grateful for what they have said.


Your photographer is someone that you spend a lot of time with on your wedding day so it is so very important that you feel comfortable around them; this is something I hold close to my heart and believe effects the end product. I look forward to the opportunity of hearing from you and getting to know about you and your plans.

    My wedding day was one of the happiest days of my life. How do you even begin to capture the way you feel; the excitement, the butterflies, the details you spend so much time creating and dreaming about.  When I look at the photographs of my wedding I feel all of those feelings again; those memories are absolutely priceless.

    Danelle and her husband Dirk are a talented and creative team, there is no stress, no barking orders, they feel like old friends who are just happily snapping away. They are both extremely professional and in all my dealings with them I knew I could trust them to deliver some amazing photographs no matter what! Danelle even skyped me all the way in Broome years away from my wedding to answer my questions and just chat. It is this personal connection Danelle makes with all of her brides which I feel really shines through in her photographs and is present before and even after your wedding day.

    When I look at my wedding photographs I don’t just see beautiful pictures, I feel the love that I was surrounded by on that day, the human connection, emotion and joy which makes every wedding unique and special. Even the most ordinary everyday scenes of home on my wedding day appear charmed, and have at times moved me to tears.

    Danelle and Dirk you guys are the best, and I speak on behalf of James and our families that we wouldn’t trust anyone else to capture these monumental life moments. Thank-you for not just documenting a special day but for capturing the magic.

    As soon as we saw Danelle’s portfolio we knew no one else would compare for our big day.  Danelle is a wonderfully gifted photographer who has an amazing eye for capturing every precious moment in the most exquisite way.

    Being fellow Kiwi’s we were over the moon when it worked out that she and Dirk could shoot our wedding in France.  Due to being based on other sides of the world we only met them once over Skype before the big day but Adam and I felt immediately at ease. It actually felt like we had been long lost friends!

    Danelle and Dirk were professional, fun-loving, down to earth and a dream to work with. Our photographs live and breathe what a truly magical weekend it was, and Danelle and Dirk captured those moments in the most exceptional way.

    We could not praise them and their work high enough and would not hesitate to recommend Danelle and Dirk for any special occasion.

  • Pip and Jake

    I had always adored Danelle’s beautiful style of photographing weddings, so when we got engaged we basically picked our wedding date around Danelle’s availability! Danelle and Dirk perfectly captured our day, and our loved ones, and their photos serve as constant reminders of our happy day. We especially loved how they were able to capture the simple, subtle moments and details like flowers and fabrics to create a story of the day. Danelle and Dirk are fantastic, warm and highly professional! They were such a pleasure to deal with, they seamlessly went about their work, and felt like friends by the end of the day! We couldn’t have asked for any better!

  • Sarah and Andy

    We were big fans of Danelle’s work well before we got engaged and locking her in was a priority for us ahead of anything else wedding related. We felt so fortunate to have her on-board for our journey and part of our dream team. Little did we know at the time we’d get the full package of Danelle along with her husband Dirk as second shooter…an awesome pair who integrated themselves so seamlessly into our day. We feel lucky to have shared such an intimate day of ours with two beautiful and genuine souls. Together they captured every moment like a painting that speaks a thousand words.

    You only get one shot at capturing the day and we knew we could trust Danelle to do that. It’s the little moments from my Granny’s cuddles to the little kittens that followed us round the entire day. She undoubtedly manages to always capture the raw emotions of the day, unstaged, unfiltered. We love looking back through our photos and reflecting on the day.

    We often get asked who our photographer was and people are blown away by the essence of the day Danelle managed to portray through our photos. We can’t recommend her enough – she is genuinely the best wedding photographer around!

  • Amanda and Andrew


    Danelle is one of those rare talents that captures the beauty in everything. Whether it be the beading on a wedding dress or a grandparent sharing a moment with their son, there is nothing that gets past Danelle. As soon as we looked through Danelle’s portfolio, we knew that there was no one else we wanted to photograph our wedding. I trusted her implicitly, knowing that no matter what the day would throw at her she would turn it into something truly exquisite.

    Danelle has this wonderful way of encapsulating the essence of a moment or occasion. Every time we look through our wedding images we feel like we are there in that moment again.  To me that is one of the most special things to have from such an important day, to have images that actually recreate those same emotions.

    I cannot recommend lovely Danelle enough, to us her photography is perfection and we simply cannot wait to use her again and again.

    When we first got engaged the first thing we booked in was Danelle, we had been following her work for a while and knew that her style is exactly what we wanted. For us photographs were one of the more important choices as these will be what last.  The whole process was made so easy, from booking, to providing details and all the way through till the end of the day. It was like we knew Danelle for years! On the day we had very limited time due to the time of sunset in mid-winter, so Danelle found a location close to the venue so we could make most of the winter light.

    We were beyond happy with the photos that we got, Danelle managed to capture so many moments that just transport you back to the day. Danelle worked so hard to capture all those moments that truly define the line a ‘picture is worth a thousand words’.

    If anyone is contemplating on booking with Danelle I highly recommend that you do, she is worth every penny, and is one of the best in the business.

    Danelle is a gifted photographer, artist, and human being. Her depth of experience, creative vision, artistic insight, and eye for compositions are unrivaled. Danelle has a wonderful love affair with light and nature. It is the way she sees the world and how she captures photographs that sets her apart. She doesn’t just capture a shot, she captures an experience. We entrusted Danelle with our special day, and we are so thankful to her for beautifully capturing the heart and soul of our wedding.

  • Danielle and Matt


    I cannot recommend Danelle more if I tried. Since I first saw her stunning photos, I KNEW she had to be the one to capture our day. Quite apart from her outstanding work which speaks for itself and looks like a beautiful fairy tale, she is a wonderful person who goes out of the way to make your day special. She helped me pick out venues for photos and did all the scouting herself as well as taking the time to get to know us and the style of wedding we wanted.  My husband made the comment that originally he wasn’t looking forward to the photos, he thought it would be a lot standing around and basically really boring – however he said he couldn’t have been more wrong. Danelle made the whole process fun and special so it just felt like an extension of the rest of our day, rather than an interruption! We have so many people comment on how incredible our photos are and how much they captured the essence of day.  Picking Danelle to capture our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!
