let's tell your story.

I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Danielle over the last year for all milestones of my marriage - she was our photographer for the proposal, engagement shoot, and for the wedding, and we have absolutely loved every album she sent over!

I came across her profile via recommendation, and now I can’t recommend her nearly enough. Me and my wife aren’t the most photo-eager people, but she was an absolute gem and bubble of energy that made us feel so at ease and natural. She has an amazing eye for shots and edits, and was very responsive and professional with planning out our timelines. By the time the wedding came along, it felt like we were good friends :)

You will not be disappointed working with Danielle!! And we can’t wait to start decorating our home with her photographs!

Danielle is something special. Of any vendor I chose through our wedding process, she was the top of our successes. Our photos are keepsakes that I'll treasure for a lifetime.

She was one of the first vendors I chose, I fell in love with her style which feel very light, airy, colorful, and happy. She is extremely prompt with responses and determined to get a feel for your vision. We booked her for an engagement shoot as well as covering our wedding. We had a unique schedule of having our ceremony and reception over two days in Palm Springs, and she was totally game! It was a heavy lift, and she DELIVERED. With how our engagement photos turned out, I knew that I didn't need to worry. Not only did I not worry, I was blown away with what she gave us. She gave our sneak peek THE NEXT DAY!

Talent? Clear as day. Personality? Easy going, fun, relaxing. She was so wonderful to work with, please book!

Danielle is the absolute BEST. She photographed my engagement photos and my wedding, and they turned out so much better than I could have ever imagined. In our first introduction call, I immediately knew I wanted to work with her because she was so friendly and professional and just understood exactly what I wanted even though I hadn't figured that out yet. She helped us pick the perfect engagement shoot locations that fit so well with our relationship and our personalities, and the entire time she just made us feel so comfortable and I could tell that she wanted us to love our photos. On the day of the wedding she was so on top of it, and captured every little detail so beautifully. I could go on for days, but the short version is Danielle is amazing, she got our photos to us so insanely fast, and everyone who has seen them is obsessed with them. Pick her!!!!!

Danielle is an absolute GEM of a photographer! She check marked everything we were looking for in a wedding photographer and more. Professional, skillful, endearing, and most of all kind! It was important for us to feel comfortable and she does an excellent job in ensuring that. No stiff poses or awkwardness, just pure fun & laughter! Danielle fit in so perfectly at our wedding that we were surprised she captured so many special moments that we didn't even remember had happened! I recommend doing an engagement shoot on top of the wedding package so you get to know her better, and by the time of your big day it’s as if you have a dear friend next to you! 10/10! Choose Danielle Dong Photography for your next special event. You won’t only gain beautiful, amazing photos & memories, but an even more amazing friend!

My husband and I hired Danielle to capture our wedding day and she was an absolute dream to work with. From the initial reach out she was personable and professional. Our engagement shoot was not only well coordinated and beautiful, but Danielle also used it as time to get us accustomed to being photographed. We had calls before the big day to ensure that everything was in order and she gathered our shot list well in advance. The wedding day photos were absolutely gorgeous. Danielle has a very creative vision and I am in love with the shots she captured on our big day. Another plus: our family is large and rowdy at times, and Danielle managed and coordinated them in the photos without skipping a beat. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to anyone who needs photos captured on their wedding day. She is fantastic!

I'm not sure where to start when it comes to Danielle and her work but I do know the vision you may have for your wedding day, engagement shoot, family photos, etc., she will go beyond those notions and deliver you the most amazing photos. We had the pleasure of having Danielle document our wedding and each photo is the timeless moment I had asked for. She was extremely responsive to emails and texts throughout the entire planning process. She is truly gifted and we can not wait to have her document more milestones in the coming years!!!!
