you have a story worth telling

I am a Charlotte, North Carolina wedding photographer who gets a kick out of capturing the most intimate and unique of nuptials ... the backyard weddings, the courthouse vows, the brewery bashes, the cliffside elopements ... while also helping give the largest of celebrations a cozy feel, through personalized photojournalism and genuine interaction.  


I adore seeing couples strip down the wedding planning process and making their day about nothing more than that real, cool love that brought them together. I'll tell your story in a real, moment by moment way, whether you're professing your life to your partner in front of just a priest or two hundred members of your tribe. 




I dig love. All of it. Especially the parts that are real and raw and full of life. 

i want a marriage more beautiful than my wedding.

We hired Dani to shoot our wedding at the end of May. We had a rough planning experience, and as soon as we met Dani she helped us through figuring things out that were stressing us. As soon as I saw the very first photo in her portfolio, it called out to me, and I knew I had to have her take our photos on our special day. We finally decided to have our wedding in our home, and not only did she fully support the idea, but when she arrived she was fully prepared and ready to work! She made everyone feel comfortable, and she made me feel like the most beautiful bride in the world! Our kids even loved her! The pictures she took are beyond anything I ever imagined. I now have the best memories of our amazing day because of Dani. 

Love, Ariel
