Brian & Jenette met because they are actually both photographers!! Jenette is a fine art/fashion photographer and Brian is a action/sports photographer!! 📷 Pretty cool, right?! Oh and not to mentioned they had the most beautiful wedding in freaking Yosemite!!! 😍 it was an intimate wedding with just their family and closest friends, which was so special ❤️ Most of their family is on the east coast and got to fly in for their special day and see Yosemite for the first time too! 🙌🏼😍🎉

I love brides are up for running around and getting their dress dirty
Just realized that I never posted a photo from when I ran through the woods with Gina & Eric about a week ago ♡

This is what most would call an imperfect photograph. Composition is off, I’m too close, hands are cut off. But I can’t help but feel how ambient this photograph is. It had to be taken too close so that you can feel as if you were right there on that dance floor with them, or even the one being kissed. Ambient in the way their palms are curving around each other or the way her cheek bones are illuminated from being kissed so deeply. Ambient in the way that it induces nostalgia almost instantly. Ambient in the way that composition and symmetry don’t always make the photographs that take you back to that very feeling or that very moment that simply cannot be recreated.

Some sweetness for your Wednesday 😊 Working on all kinds of fun stuff behind the scenes that I can’t wait to show you all!
Engagement sessions are such a stress-free time to get to know a couple (and photographer) prior to the wedding day.

Can I just say we are blessed with the absolute best couples 🙌🏼 Down to shoot in a snow storm, change plans last minute, and smiling about it the whole time 💛 Grateful for Alyssa and James and their adventurous souls!
So I’m obsessed with Project Runway....Like totally binge watch it when I get time to watch tv by myself! I try to take it into my photography as well; cause fashion is creative and so is photography. This is my example of a hard and soft + a Tim Gunn make it work moment. In this photograph I was practicing making a luxurious photograph with not ideal situations. While this was in my own studio, it was dark so I had to use the window area. Outside there was a black truck, quaint but not good colors of buildings. I’m loving how @katsfloweraffair rose is looking so beautiful in this image.
San Diego has my ❤️!
Made a quick trip to San Diego this week for Kevin and Lauren’s beautiful engagement session!!! Complete with outfit changes , laughs and two of the cutest dogs, complete with a bow and a bow tie!!
Lauren and Kevin and planning their Hawaii wedding for 2020 which I can’t wait to capture, and it was so nice to spend the night with them, getting to know them and this beautiful city!

One of the things I want to focus on at my next #daniellepoffworkshop is helping my attendees find good light when it’s not golden hour, and how film can really help you feel more confident with that!
Yesterday went from wind and hail to a cloudless blue sky. This afternoon is their reception; let's see what San Francisco has to offer us this time around.

This June marks 9 years of shooting weddings! It’s wild to think about how majorly the industry has changed, how much I’ve learned and grown, and how I’m living out my wildest dreams. I never imagined I’d get to support myself by following my heart (and putting in the work of course). When I feel stressed or overwhelmed this realization helps me put everything into perspective. 💛
Heading back out to the flower fields today for a maternity session! If anyone is wanting a session (family, couples, maternity) there please let me know soon as the flowers only stay bloomed for a short amount of time 💛

One of my favorites that Jamie grabbed at Emma and Matt’s wedding!
Some say the styled shoot is not relevant anymore because it’s harder to get them published.
I whole heartedly disagree that they are irrelevant. ✨
It’s these shoots where creatives can collaborate and dream up the next beautiful idea that a bride may subtly incorporate into her own wedding. Or just feel a flutter in her heart while admiring the beautiful pictures on Pinterest. Either response is the intention 💕
It’s what keeps the industry moving forward so that we can keep coming up with new ways to make weddings beautiful.
A true artist will not be able to stop creating. Ideas will keep filling you up until you cannot think of anything else until you create. It’s the reason I won’t hang up my camera to be a stay at home mom. Editorials are the opportunity to create freely, to feel inspired by fashion and create magic and I cannot wait for Spring to get here.

When I was branding my photography I wanted to pick a name that symbolizes love, specifically in weddings.
But now I have grown with the idea of documenting love stories. Weddings are not the only love stories!
Do you have a love story that you want me to document? I will gladly capture it 😉
Because of funzies 😊
Once in a while I like to play with pictures. I just give room for my creative self to explore and be out of the box. I used to save these mini adventures to myself but I will start to share them with y'all
What do you guys think? I think it's a telenovela cover 😊 What would you name it?

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.We love because he first loved us.

I admire those couples that love to explore things together and push each other out of their comfort zones. They leave no room for fear but growth. They encourage each other because of love!

Why is it important to hire a professional make-up artist and hairstylist for your wedding day?! °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Yes, you need to look good but because you want to be ready ON TIME!
There have been cases where brides have left their make-up and hair in the hands of a really good and talented friend. But talents does not always guarantee punctuality. It's important to be on time for your ceremony and for your photos! °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Just to be safe! Add extra time in your timeline before and after the ceremony. And HIRE a professional makeup artist and hairstylist. They know what they are doing. And always run a trial BEFORE your wedding day (engagement session, date-night)

Many brides struggle with who to invite to the wedding. Some want a small intimate wedding others a large wedding. But what do you do when you have a large family and can only afford to invite 50%?! °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°
Many couples have had destination weddings to keep the wedding small, others have asked family members to help sponsor their wedding, and some do DIYs to stay in budget.
My recommendation is to celebrate with the ones you love and DO NOT GO IN DEBT! You do not want to start your marriage in debt. Have fun! You'll always remember the people who celebrated with you the most, especially of you hire a good storyteller photographer 😉
