photography for the unabashed adventurer 

 based in ottawa, canada / available worldwide

You and your love. The real kind. The kind that makes you want to hug a little tighter, stay out by the campfire together just a little longer, and pause and take in the little moments that make you smile. 

this is about you.

YOU AND YOUR LOVE. THE REAL KIND. THE KIND THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO HUG A LITTLE TIGHTER, STAY OUT BY THE CAMPFIRE TOGETHER JUST A LITTLE LONGER, AND PAUSE AND TAKE IN THE LITTLE MOMENTS THAT MAKE YOU SMILE.

I'm ready for the beach or the snow! Wherever you see your adventure, I'm there and I'm prepped for it. 

IN MY BAG

Don't worry, I bring extra. Don't want anyone getting hangry. 

I think this one goes without saying!

In case we decide we want to chill and take a break! 

In case I feel the need to make you guys roll around on the ground...

Return

My name is Danielle, and I'm a traveling photographer based in Ottawa, Canada.

I photograph people I love in the places they love, wherever that may be in the world. There’s nothing more important to me than my people, my friends and my family, the earth underneath my feet, living with a sense of adventure, and creating something meaningful for others.

It’s so important we get to know each other to make sure we’re a good fit cause trust me, it matters. I'll go first.

I'm about more than just a pretty picture.

I will take beautiful photos of you. But I have a deep desire to create something more than that. This is about capturing the way you feel about each other. Capturing who you are, and more importantly, who you are together. Cause when you're with The One, your best self shines through, and that's something worth documenting.

who i am

this is who I am. 

My partner and I have been together for almost 9 years. We have a beautiful, energetic, hilarious 7 year old daughter who lights me up like nothing else. Scott is handsome, bearded, stokes up the woodstove for me when I'm freezing in the winter, and is just generally good at everything (which is super annoying but also handy). He proposed at a tiny, private cabin in front of a roaring campfire, with mountain views in the distance.

this is who I am. 

Our bulldog Marshall is affectionately known as The House Donkey, because if ever there were another creature whose soul so accurately matched his, Winnie the Pooh's pal Eeyore would be it. 


2/5

this is who I am. 

I love to travel and have a very long bucket list. I've been in India, Ireland, Mexico, Cuba, Northern California, Maine, all over Ontario, Jamaica, Hawaii... My big dream involves going to Moab, Utah (or the Sahara, whichever works) and racing and camping in our Jeep. 


3/5

this is who I am. 

My hobbies include hiking, biking, skiing, yoga, watching ridiculous comedies, being with our daughter and playing and making memories, giving our pup belly rubs first thing in the morning, slowly killing all of our houseplants (even after switching to succulents), and spending time with the people I love. 


4/5

what's most important?  

Taking Marshall for walks through the bush, quietly colouring with my daughter, dancing around each other while we make breakfast on the weekends, chilling in the backyard, and just being present. This is the stuff that matters - the real stuff. This is what I want to capture, because it's real and it's raw and it's YOU.

Your love story deserves to be captured in a natural way that's authentic to you. 

My goal is to not only be an awesome partner on your adventure, but to become your friend, tell your story, and create some magic in an epic location. 

I've had the privilege of photographing some awesome couples who I'm glad to still call friends. It's so amazing to be able to truly connect with someone and share something as deeply personal and intimate as photographing them together.

Elopement

Let's run away together! An elopement is usually just the two of you, and maybe an officiant and a couple of guests or witnesses. An elopement with just the couple is my absolute fave - you get to marry your best friend while exploring a new place together! 

Intimate Wedding

STARTING AT $1500

Intimate Wedding

Up to 50 of your closest friends and family, and can be in an outdoor setting close to a cabin or venue, on the side of a cliff or mountaintop, or in the woods near your home - whatever speaks to you. 

Adventurous Couples Session

STARTING AT $2000

adventurous couples session

Not getting married? Already married or celebrating an anniversary or milestone? Couples sessions are SO much fun and a completely amazing experience, and you don't even need a reason to do one. If you're in love, want to venture someplace epic, and get some insanely gorgeous photos in the process, then you totally should - you won't regret it! 

Destination wedding

STARTING AT $500 

Destination Wedding

Anything that involves travel! If you want to chill on the beach in Jamaica, awesome. If you see yourself hiking up a mountain in BC and then celebrating with all your closest friends and family at Eagle's Eye, go for it! 

Any of these sound like you?!
