PACIFIC NORTHWEST &
HI! I'M DANA. A Washington based + Destination photographer with a passion to help you perserve genuine and dream-like memories that will last a lifetime. I strive for ‘artistic documentary’ photography, storytelling, and timeless and candid imagery. I want your experience with me to be something you genuinely enjoy; before, during, and afterwards.
When I'm not capturing memories you can find me hiking, practicing yoga, singing, trying new coffee shops with fiancé Jake and scouting for epic locations! I like to focus on experience and connection.
SOME FACTS ABOUT ME
I love creating in multiple mediums - watercolors, ceramics, and digital art are a few of my faves.
I grew up in Mexico City until I moved to the States when I was 14. I go back to Mexico a couple of times a year.
I fell in love with Oregon when I visited my aunt in the summer of 2008. I moved in 2010 to live with her :)
I met my husband in the high school choir, and we got married in Santorini, Greece!!
I LOVE the outdoors - hiking, camping, paddle boarding - but I am also a sucker for a movie night and a warm cup of tea.
I have 3 fur babies - Anji and Phoebe - my two cats. And Dottie - our 2-year-old mini Aussie.
For the wildly in love, the adventurous spirits and those who aren't afraid to get a little wet. I will provide a completely customized experience for your ideal photoshoot. My passion for photography comes from the idea to capture people in their essence. Bringing out genuine emotions is what photography is all about. Capturing love stories is only something I don't take for granted. I pour my heart, soul, and countless hours of my time into making sure your photos are something you will want to frame on your walls for years. I want you to love your gallery so much that you can't decide which photo to print, use as wallpaper, and post on social media. More than that, I know how anxiety-inducing it can be to get your photo taken. That's why I strive to make your session with me as fun and candid as possible. No heavy posing or awkward smiles. Just a date with me as your third wheel. I believe photos are a huge investment whether it's for an anniversary, engagement, or just because. From booking to delivering your galley I hope to be the perfect fit for you!
LET'S CREATE SOMETHING MAGICAL.
Your love story deserves to be captured in the most candid and romantic way. Aaaaand most importantly, be fun and look back on photos you will love years down the road! Check out my frequency asked questions or get in touch to make it official.
"Dana feels like family. My husband and I felt so comfortable in front of her and confident that she'd capture our special day as I had always envisioned it. There was complete ease and peace of mind. It's difficult not to trust someone as kind, down-to-earth, and generous as Dana is. If I had to do my wedding day all over again, I would still choose her. I mean, just look at her stunning portfolio! Thank you Dana for capturing the best day of our lives."
